2DBoy pulls a Radiohead and lets you pay whatever you want for the game. I've never actually played World of Goo but this little promotion might persuade me to give it a whirl.

Ars Technica reviews Brutal Legend, calls it heartbreaking near-miss.Ars Technica reviews Brutal Legend, calls it heartbreaking near-miss.

That's a shame, I was really rooting for this game. The demo was thoroughly fun to play from start to finish but apparently some of that gameplay was the best it had to offer.

Touch Arcade gets some hands-on time with Rock Band: iPhone.Touch Arcade gets some hands-on time with Rock Band: iPhone.

playing the tracks in the iPhone Rock Band works just like its console big brother in that every note you miss causes the music to be interrupted. This seems to add so much more to the game than just tapping along to a song like other similar games on the platform...

Sixth point: the game you just bought at full price which did not live up to any of the hype could've been much cheaper to experience via rental.

David Bowie officially joins Rock Band lineup... in LEGO form.David Bowie officially joins Rock Band lineup... in LEGO form.

Bowie will also be joined by a LEGO version of Iggy Pop. I'm still not understanding the whole Rock Band / LEGO connection. Perhaps the union is meant to function as a metaphor to emphasize the building blocks of music. Or maybe it's just cross-marketing gone berserk.

Since I figured I had blown the interview, I had nothing to lose. So I did my cover letter in the form of a semi-graphic adventure. I drew the pictures on my Koala pad, and printed the whole thing out on my Atari 800 dot-matrix printer.
