Sorry, been a bit busy lately....though I haven't exactly done anything productive with my time.

Here's some news, though.

-

For those of you who liked the original Vagrant Story and Xenogears and are in North America, they're coming to the PSN soon. Other old titles include: Arc the Lad III, Threads of Fate, Legend of Mana, and, ahem, "R4 Ridge Racer Type 4" (Suspect).

Skype now allows iPhone users to have "mobile video calling over Wi-Fi and 3G." "Owners of the iPad or older versions of the iPod touch, which lack built-in cameras, will also be able to use video conferencing, though only able to view incoming video."

The Xbox 360 won IGN's console showdown as overall winner, in contrast to the PS3 winning the past 2 years.

Here is an image gallery of the next Tomb Raider game: http://www.gameinformer.com/b/features/archive/2010/12/30/tomb-raider-bonus-gallery.aspx

It's supposed to be a reboot of the franchise, (fun fact) which is now owned by Square Enix.

For those who are a bit lazy to view the gallery, here are some example images:

"Call of Duty: Black Ops" now has the honor of "Most Pirated Title of 2010" for PCs, with 4,270,000 million downloads. "Super Mario Galaxy 2" is the most pirated game for the Wii, and "Dante's Inferno" takes the top place for Xbox 360; both were downloaded over a million times.

The previous Call of Duty game, "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2", was the most pirated game of 2009 for the PC, with 4,100,000 downloads.

Nintendo warns that kids 6 and under should never use the the 3D mode of the 3DS, as it could potentially harm their healthy eyes. On the other hand, adults are warned to use the 3D mode no longer than 30 minutes.

Obesity is growing, as "Almost one-third of 9-month-olds are obese or overweight, as are 34 percent of 2-year-olds, according to the research, which looked at a nationally representative sample of children born in 2001."

"The find hints at an unfortunate pattern: Kids who start out heavier end up heavier. Of kids who were normal weight at 9 months old, 75 percent were still normal weight at 2 years. But kids who were at-risk at nine months had only a 50 percent chance of being normal weight at age 2. More than 28 percent of at-risk kids ended up obese by their second birthday.

Obese 9-month-olds showed an even starker pattern. Only 37.6 percent were normal weight at age 2. Just over 18 percent did improve to the at-risk category, but 43.9 percent remained obese."

Central US will be pretty cold this today for the last day of 2010, where there will be snow and rain, as well as some ice and wind. In the evening, weather conditions should be weaker, as there'll be less snow in the central US, but still some rain. Snow and rain will also develop in the west, as well as a small spot of rain in the central northwest of Texas. Generally, temperatures will be cold(VERY cold in the center of the US), though warmer in the south, of course.

Everything will be warmer tomorrow on New Year's(very warm in the southeast), though still pretty cold in the central. Rain and snow will still stay in the west, though some snow will stretch from Montana to Utah and Colorado. In the central northeast, wind and snow. In the east, mainly rain.

A man stole a gaming system from a dead 17 year-old's casket. Police has charged the man, Jody Lynn Bennett, of "theft, abuse of a corpse and intentional desecration of a venerated object."

"Bennett's mother apologized on the thief's behalf, blaming the crime on a drug problem."

Saluatutations, everybody! Sorry it's been so long, but here are TODAY'S news!

For Video Games:

The 3DS had "Record First-Day 3DS Sales", which is a good thing. They stated, "U.S. day-one sales numbers for Nintendo 3DS were the highest of any Nintendo hand-held system in our history". However, they haven't been able to keep their sales going strong following, it seems. In Japan, the PSP has had more sales than the 3DS. About 58, 000 PSP units were sold, while only about 43,000 3DS units were sold.
