While You Were Sleeping

Morning! I write this post every day when I should be sleeping — at 6.30am on the train to work. Maybe I should change the name of this little news round up to 'While I Should Be Sleeping'. Yeah, not quite as catchy...

To the news...

Don't get me wrong, I understand that publishers and developers aren't creating video games for the sake of their health. This is a money making enterprise. But still, the ways in which the games industry tries to syphon money from consumers in an attempt to continue with a struggling business model is worrying. Are things really that bad? This quote from Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick really worries me. It also bothers me a little.

And on the topic of struggling business models — Zynga has suffered massive layoffs. Say what you like about Zynga, but I don't really like it when anyone loses their job.

This Red Dead Redemption fan movie looks pretty awesome, as do these Predator action figures I've been waiting a lifetime for. Finally, take a gander at the truly surreal paintings of Japanese celebrities.
