Marvel Ultimate Battles Card Game Announced!

Upper Deck, the folks who make the [kwlink]Yu-Gi-Oh![/kwlink], [kwlink]World of Warcraft[/kwlink] and [kwlink]Vs. System[/kwlink] card games have a new one coming - Marvel Ultimate Battles! It lets you play cards as your favorite superheroes, like [kwlink]Iron Man[/kwlink], [kwlink]Spider-Man[/kwlink], [kwlink]The Hulk[/kwlink], Captain America and more. You'll be able to battle with your [kwlink]friends[/kwlink] with a fast, easy to learn game! It drops in April 2008 with Iron Man and The Hulk 48-card [kwlink]Starter Decks[/kwlink] or nine-card Booster Packs.

Operation Smile Charity

Hasbro's releasing the new Operation Rescue Kit board game on its 25th anniversary and they're also doing a special charity drive to help the Operation Smile kids medical charity! They have special events all over [kwlink]North America[/kwlink] where you can get your picture taken with [kwlink]celebrities[/kwlink]. But, you can also help right now. Just head over to and click on the Oxygen Pump Button to get Hasbro to donate $0.25 more to the charity.

Sony's Ripping You Off With the PS3

Remember how the new, cheaper [kwlink]PS3 doesn't play PS2 games?[/kwlink] Well, it could, it just needs Sony to add a program to it. And it's a program they already have so it would be super easy. But they won't. Why not? Because they want you to buy [kwlink]PS3 games[/kwlink] and they figure if they make it so you can't play [kwlink]PS2 games[/kwlink], you will. They're doing it on purpose. That sucks.

    Oh trust me, I know a pc is better. But when a console is slower then a console that is technically weaker. That is just, bad.

    The internet browser on the PS4 is BAD not as bad as internet explorer 6 but still pretty bad. I will start with the little things., It is slower then the Wii U's browser (Wii U is an inferior console in terms of processing power.) Scrolling on the PS4 has been dumped down. While the PS3's browser wasn't as good. At least it could scroll smoothly. When you get too much cache on your browser, the browser will load slower, and when you type it takes for ever for the PS4 to register the letter that you have selected.
