National newspaper USA Today, today, launched their official video game blog.

First LittleBigPlanet, and now this. USA Today must have been quite fond of the attention they got by offering beta codes for LBP, because now they're back for another round of PlayStation 3 beta goodness, this time in the form of Resistance 2. Right now you can hit up the link below, register to comment, and tell the nice USA Today people in 50 words or less why you deserve to be in the beta, and you could be one of 400 lucky winners of what amounts to early access to the game.
Are you one of the five people on the planet who haven't gotten into the public beta for Sony's highly anticipated LittleBigPlanet? It might be over in a couple of days, but do not fret! Everybody has beta codes for the game lying about, and by everyone I mean even USA Today. Entertainment reporter Mike Snider gives us the skinny. Let your readers know that USATODAY.com is the place for their chance to play LittleBigPlanet before it hits stores Oct. 21. They can go to http://littlebigplanet.usatoday.com and there will be a link that gets them a free access key (beta code) from Sony to download the trial version of the game to their Net-connected PlayStation 3.
Parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles who may be on the lookout for something appropriate for the kids this holiday—strike Manhunt 2 from your lists, first of all—may want to refer themselves to USA Today's picks for the best kid fare of 2007. Sure, it may be easy to tick off things like Super Mario Galaxy and Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure, but what about the littlest tykes? And what about those who will go Wii-less this year?
USA Today points to a couple of titles that fell under our radar, including DVD games and PC titles such as Guess How Much I Love You and JumpStart World Kindergarten. Of course, the editor must be commended for her choice of Rock Band, which is just about perfect for the kids. Sure, there will be some snarls of anarchy from the pre-teen crowd this Xmas, but it's, like, educational and stuff.
