Season 2, episode 2 of Static is here: We chat about how many of your Facebook friends are actually friends, why on Earth people line up for stuff (RTX, In-And-Out pop ups), the pros and cons of open plan offices, and you ask us -- what's the nerdiest way to ask someone out on a date?

We also chat to Stef Dawson, best known as Annie Cresta from The Hunger Games.


The Hunger Games opened last Thursday to sold-out theatres. Bringing in over $US150 million in ticket sales in the US alone, it claimed the third-best opening weekend in terms of revenue in the history of blockbuster cinema.


You'll be able to play a Hunger Games video game this Thursday, if you've got an iOS device. The free game is based on the book and upcoming movie that depict the an annual televised competition for survival between boys and girls in huge arenas in a ruined North America.


I was disappointed with Uncharted 3 for a number of reasons. Certainly one of those reasons was that the game had bizarre difficulty spikes and could be kind of a dick sometimes. But another, possibly bigger reason was that while Uncharted 3 generally mirrored the pacing and story-arc of Uncharted 2, it lacked one of my favourite things about its predecessor: chemistry. Specifically, the romantic chemistry born of the love-triangle between Nathan Drake, Chloe and Elena. More love-triangles in games, please!
