Links of the Day

R.I.P. Andy Hallett - The Angel star (played Krevlornswath) died at the very young age of 33 due to heart failure. He has been fighting heart disease for the last five years. He was also a magician and singer. Condolences to the family.

Adam Savage Interview - From Lifehacker, an interview with Mythbusters host as he talks about his day to day work and filming the show. Huge fan of the show that finally starts airing new episodes on April 8th.

Playstation 2 Drops to $100 - One of the best video games systems ever released drop $30 to $99 price point. Of course at this point if you don't already own a PS2 then chances are you were never going to buy one to begin with. Still it’s a good price point to go hit up GameStop for those older games always meant to play but never had time too.

GM Problems 50 Years in the Making - A good analysis of how GM got in the mess it’s in from a pure operating margin perspective. I would say abandoning quality for short term gain was the biggest cause but then GM has a history of thinking only about the next quarter rather than years down the line.

Example "Silent Knight" Stage from Arkham Asylum - This game is starting to look like a must buy with its graphics and mix of gameplay that does a good job of capturing what being the Dark Knight would be.
