Links of the Day

HBO's First Look at Harry Potter 6 - Essentially an 11 minute commercial for the upcoming film with the cast and others talking about how great the movie will be and working on it with a little bit of behind the scenes footage and scenes.

Warners Bros Buy Midway Games - One of the first companies of the video game era has ended. Midway is famed for such franchises as Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Rampage, Mortal Kombat and more was run in the ground by executives more focused on protecting their bonuses then running the company with competence. Now WB owns it for a fire sale price of $33 million. What they plan to do with their new property remains unknown but I expect movie announcements soon.

Mega Man Atari 2600 Demo - If you have an Atari 2600 emulator installed on your machine, you can play a Mega Man demo created Atari 2600 style back in 2007 for "I Am 8-bit" show. It is very authentic looking with its 80s era graphics and sound while retaining that Mega Man style.

15 Sci-Fi Sequels That Don't Suck - Just what the title says with movies such as X2, Back to the Future 2, Empire Strikes Back and more. Overall, little for me to disagree with on that list (but what in the world is Daleks, not the Doctor Who version).
