Has Netflix Screwed the Pooch?

Netflix

If you’re a Netflix customer you might have caught today’s announcement of new plans and pricing (starting now for new customers and September 1st for existing customers). Netflix has announced that they will be splitting their plans into two separate types: streaming andDVD. 

Beyonce Sued by videogame Developer Gate Five

“Someone’s mining my ore?!” – Watching “The Guild”

The Guild

The Guild

My friends get me hooked on all the cool stuff.

Earlier this month my friend, Amanda, came over and brought a couple of dvds with her of a show that she said we had to see. I’d heard about “The Guild” but to be honest, I had no idea what it was even about. When she mentioned that it was about gaming my ears totally perked up. She explained it was a webseries that was still running. Knowing how much I loved Dr. Horrible and all of Red vs. Blue I figured it couldn’t be too terrible.

Black Ops:First Strike costs $53.6 Million?

Call of Duty: Black Ops has sold amazingly well. There is no surprise that the First Strike Map Pack will sell pretty well. With any and all major DLC there are problems. I have found a few and decided to share before it is fixed. The first picture below shows the map pack download costing -1 Microsoft point. Well just out of curiosity I decided to see if it would work or not. The next picture shows it the required balance being 42,93,967,295 which comes out to be $53,687,091.19. This of course is going to get fixed and no one will end up buying it for that price, but I feel it is a worth wild to share to those who probably will not see it before it gets fixed. I apologize for the picture quality not being crystal clear, but I’m sure you can make out what it says. And before I post I have checked it again and the problem is fixed so you don’t have to worry. Just enjoy the mistake of Microsoft that is below.

What to watch?

 

Today with the level of access to TV, movies, and DLC. I still find myself flipping channels, scrolling endlessly through my Netflix instant queue, or trolling on Hulu for somthing compelling, interesting, or even heartfelt to watch. Thankfully due to the social prowess of Twitter, and the ever reliable information super highway. I was able to snag a couple of recommendations, so just thought I’d pass on the fruits of my labor.
