  • Opinion: Gamewatch: Thor God of Thunder, MotorStorm Apocalypse

    Uh-oh, another wannabe-blockbuster summer movie tie-in. It sounds like the international reviewers don't hate Marvel's new Kenneth Branagh-directed Thor movie, so mayhap there's hope for Sega's Thor: God of Thunder (Nintendo DS, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii). In it, you can expect to "control the powers of the storm" as Thor, battling the usual panoply of Norse bad guys Marvel comics-style (yea verily). There's also the Matt Fraction-helped-with-the-story angle, though everyone's favorite Eisner-winning comics writer is hardly impervious to dull writing. ETA: May 3rd

  • News: White iPhone 4 is Thicker Than Black Model

    After 10 months of delays, the white iPhone 4 has arrived, and at closer inspection it turns out it's not only late, but also thicker than its black sibling. The difference is very small, 0.2 millimeters to be more precise, but it's enough to give headaches to some users who would find their cases wouldn't fit on the white iPhone 4.
