Today in Techland: Lev brought us part one of his awesome Mark Millar interview, and the boys’ conversation with Bioware, the minds behind Mass Effect 2, went up for your reading pleasure. Me? I spent the day chewing on last night’s episode of LOST while Steve brought us some truly strange hybrid beasts. What the hell is a Bearotaur?

Here’s what else is going on in nerd news around the Web:

Oh, hey. Gladiator 2: Nope, just the new Robin Hood trailer. Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe, at it again. Watch it.

Google’s attempt to take over the world, #789: Google announced the launch of Google Reader Play today via its blog. Play surveys your tastes and then provides you with interesting Web hits based on your category interests. Basically, it’s Stumble Upon a la Google.
Oh Dear God No: They’re making an Alvin and the Chipmunks 3. (Throws something across room.) Shame on you, 20th Century Fox.
Amazon gets cold: The Beat is reporting that in light of this week’s over-sell snafoo, Amazon has frozen sales of all books distributed by Diamond Book Distributors. This includes titles by Marvel, Image, Dark Horse, IDW, Archaia, Dynamite and Top Shelf, just to name a few.
Now you can Google your bike trail: After a huge petition, Google has finally added bike paths to Google Maps. Trails for around 150 cities are available on the Maps search, with more likely to come.
Rave on, nerds: CNN posted this list of the top 10 geek anthems, and I have to say, it’s a pretty solid list. Weird Al, Weezer and Devo? Yeah, that’s pretty nerdy.
