Links of the Day

Leaked God of War III Footage - Over the GDC conference a little footage was shown of the title do next year. Suffice it to say it looks like more of the same violent game play as the previous games.

Stimulus Watch - Click the link for a great website that tracks how those billions of stimulus dollars are being spent on a city by city basis. When seeing it laid out in this way, it makes you wonder why Republicans kept insisting on their tax cuts when the new roadwork, bridges, roofs and other bridges seems to be better use of the money over the long term.

Republicans Reveal Their "Budget" Plan - In an attempt to counter being called the "Party of No", GOP Minority Leader John Boehner revealed their "Road to Recovery" plan. Oddly their "budget" has zero number. None, nada, zilch. It seems less of a plan and more of a written statement on why they don't like Obama's plan and their preference is lots and lots of tax cuts. More the more the better. So there you go, the Party of No is really the Party of No Plans.

MythBusters Big Bang - While recording an episode of Mythbusters, the gang's explosion of 500 pounds of ammonium nitrate blew more than the socks off of a mannequin. Instead they blew out the windows of some homes in the nearby town of Esparto. Sadly no clue when the episode will air but can't wait. If you don't watch the show, you really should.

10 Reasons Magazines Are Failing - A pretty good breakdown on why the days of magazines are numbered regardless of what they do. The main problems is always behind on information, little too concerned about offending advertisers, expensive, poorly designed websites, columnists generally suck, reviews lack detail on real world use, makes tons of errors and simply boring. I really can't disagree.
