US News Wrap, September 23 – What Happened Today
The weekend is here, which means you are stuck with only me tomorrow after having Alex, Jessica, and Stace pop in to help while Brenna is on vacation, and Johnny is at the EG Expo.
Everyone seriously needs to give all three of them a massive pat on the back for the outstanding job they did this week. They are not only reliable as VG247 temps, but are good at what they do and an absolute joy to work with. Bravo.

At least there is a launch window of sorts for this.
DC Universe Online is going F2P, and SOE tells you why.
No word on what all these changes are, but there’s a list of stuff that will be part of it in there.
Companions. Get acquainted with them.
Long headline is long.
That video MTV had yesterday some of you couldn’t watch is now watchable.
Conan rocks. Nuff said.
Here’s some answers on how to get into the beta.
He’s right, honestly.
Wow. Lots of comments for a post on a 25 second game clip.
Interesting concept on that game.
This still isn’t over, so don’t start cashing in your bets just yet.
More “please don’t sue us” clauses.
Title says it all, really.
The one Resident Evil game I haven’t played on consoles. I know. I should have my #1 Resident Evil fan tattoo removed with a cheese grater.
Blame Nintendo, apparently.
Lots of shorts and a very expensive headset.
Okay, I am off to make my famous chili. See you tomorrow.
