Wednesday Shorts – Björk, Laura Vandervoot, Catherine redub
Reading this gives you a fair idea of what we do all day when we’re not busily typing for you.
Yep, we look for more things to type for you. Everywhere.
- The gamescom trailer for The Sims 3 Pets is pretty cheerful.
- Tower Bloxx developer Digital Chocolate has purchased Sandlot Games, the team behind Cake Mania.
- Smallville’s Laura Vandervoot appears in this Spider-man: Edge of Time dev diary. She voices mary jane.
- Go to PAX, get free exclusive bonuses for Orcs Must Die.
- Steph was really amused by this re-dubbing of a scene from Catherine into a whinge about Diablo III.
- Björk’s latest album has released as an iOS app. It comes with one free track and you purchase others, which have game-like interactive elements.
- Someguy2 tipped us off to a video of what he believed to be the new Xbox 360 dashboard – but it’s since been removed. By Microsoft.
- The guy behind Chasing the Chuck Wagon has started a new company to sell used games but give publishers a slice. Wh-why hadn’t anyone thought of this before?
- Siliconera noted a Japanese trademark suggesting a new Shining game is inbound. The JRPGs, not the classic horror. Alas.
