Is OnLive the New Fourth Game Console? Actually, Maybe

A games startup called OnLive will be coming out of stealth mode today at the Game Developers Conference. Here’s the proposition: they take the heavy processing part of video games and move it into — and I apologize for using this hated, hated word — the Cloud.

Dollhouse, Episode 6: A Viewer’s Notes

I finally got to watch Friday night’s Dollhouse yesterday. It’s currently the only episodic television I follow, and I’m a little at a loss to explain its hold over me. But that’s not stopping me from having opinions about it! To wit:

Is Kick-Ass the New Watchmen?

The new Tripwire Special is here — Tripwire being an estimable British comics magazine.
