Oh, joy of joys. It’s Monday again. Let’s just dive right in, shall we? Starting tomorrow the Playstation Network is going to be rebranded the Sony Entertainment Network. E-mails are going out letting members know that the terms of service are changing. I’m sure there will be some kind of announcement later this year that helps makes the name change seem less pointless.
Time For A Celebratory Snow Cone
Russian scientists have drilled a hole through 13,000 feet of ice in order to get to an underground lake in Antarctica. To prevent contamination they're going to let the water rise up into the tunnel and freeze and then remove a sample. This is the first time in about 20 million years that the lake has been exposed to light or air. It would be pretty amazing if it was teeming with life.

Mass Effect: Deception was riddled with errors. Bioware admits it and they're going to fix the book for future editions. I'm not going to blame Bioware. I'm going to blame the author. He shouldn't have tried to bullshit his way through a paycheck. I'm not saying that's what he did, but that book seemed pretty half-assed.
Wow. Just, Wow.
Resident Evil: Revelations had a pretty interesting error on the packaging sent to reviewers. The title of the game was misspelled. It gets better. The exact same printing error made it to retail. If you got a copy with the misspelling you can call Capcom Customer Service at 650-350-6700 and they'll ship you a corrected insert. I would recommend that you put the original somewhere safe because it may be worth something someday.
Remaster, Repackage, Resell
While at the Taipei Game Show Square Enix producer Shinji Hashimoto answered some fan questions about Final Fantasy. When he was asked about the upcoming Final Fantasy re-release he made it clear that it wasn't a remake, it's a remaster.
That's about it for now. I'll be back again tomorrow whether you want me to return or not. Deal with it. If you're one of the few that wants more check me out on Twitter @kelknaughty.
