Super Street Fighter IV

Just picked this game up and I have to say. AMAZING. This game is far superior to it's street fighter IV counterpart. I like how all the characters are unlocked at the beginning so I can go and play with who I want to. I owned the original for PC and I got super for the xbox360. I am still getting used to the control scheme. The new characters are good. However, If you are not a street fighter fan, I wouldn't pick this one up. It was 37 dollars. and the original game with less characters was only 10 when I bought it. 8/10 Had to take off because of the price!

Brad Pitt possibly starring in a Red Dead redemption movie?????!?!?!?!

Rumor: Brad Pitt to star in Red Dead Redemption movie photo

The rumor is that Brad Pitt is the front runner for playing John Marston in a movie adaptation of Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption. This comes to us by way of ShowbizSpy. They say that Pitt is being given a first refusal for the lead role. It is also rumored that he'll require 100 Nazi scalps before he considers the role.
"This is an exciting project with a great character at the center of it," a source said. "The idea is to make this in the style of an epic Western movie but with a few modern touches."
As Kotaku points out, this could all be total bullsh*t, but I think a Red Dead Redemption flick with Pitt as the lead would be pretty good. They say that Rockstar says that this is just a rumor, but they wouldn't tell you the truth if it wasn't, now would they?
But remember that Grand Theft Auto movie? Oh yeah. That's right.

U. of Florida Adds Starcraft Studies

U. of Florida Adds Starcraft StudiesStarcraft is being used to teach resource management skills in a new course offering at the University of Florida - but it's only open to students in the honors college, and students have to have some familiarity with the game.
Nate Poling, a Ph.D candidate at UF, came up with the idea and sold his department on it, so IDS 2935 "21st Century Skills in Starcraft," will be offered as an online-only class this coming semester.
Starcraft as a college subject isn't new; California-Berkeley offered a course on competitive Starcraft through its renowned Haas School of Business. At Florida, it sounds like Poling's lesson plan will also align Starcraft to business management.
Those who run businesses, factories and hospitals must manage according to their knowledge of their personnel's strengths, weaknesses and different abilities, sort of the same calculus involved in StarCraft.
"A student who gets a normal education, gets an MBA, and is in the business world, he could realize that something he learned in his StarCraft course helps him think outside of the box," Poling told MIT's Technology Review. "You synthesize this with an MBA program and voila - you have an innovative business practice."
He's careful to stress this is a supplemental course, not a replacement for traditional teaching methods. Poling anticipates it'll be a popular offering, but the StarCraft skillz and honors-only requisites should keep him from getting swamped by students wanting to play games for a grade.
There is no final examination, but the course does count toward undergrads' GPA.

Valve Were Making A Fairy Game Before Left 4 Dead

A flying fairy is hardly the sort of protagonist you’d expect to see in a game developed by Valve, but the truth remains that this is exactly what they was working on before moving on to Left 4 Dead.

Valve project manager Erik Johnson described the game as a fairy RPG that had spells “based on movement and mouse gestures” and that “was so bad.”
But the studio’s boss, Gabe Newell, explained that that failure was actually beneficial to them. “That was a useful failure to us,” he said, “because it was so clearly dumb that it made us say, ‘OK, what are we actually good at that we can do instead?’”
“It was so bad,” Gabe reaffirmed, “you wanted to ask yourself: ‘How could we make a game that was this bad? And how should we make a game?’ And we said we should focus on what we do really well, so why are we doing this game which was kind of a… it wasn’t really an RPG… it was this action fantasy sort of role playing game that had no story. And then we said ‘OK, that’s so horribly wrong. What we should focus in on is AI and playing in co-op, and that’s the interesting opportunity.’ That was where Left 4 Dead came from.”
