Is THQ planning a HomeWorld 3 ??

Recently, some fans went digging for information over at fan site Relic News. And guess what they uncovered! They’ve found that THQ, who now own original Homeworld developers Relic, have picked up the rights to the series from former owners Vivendi (ie Sierra).

This isn’t confirmation that any new Homeworld titles are in the making, of course, but then they’d hardly go to all the trouble of getting the rights if they weren’t going to something with them.

Im a HuGE fan of the series, and would totally love to play a new sequel to the original game. Lets hope that news for Homeworld 3 is announced very soon 😀

Dubai planning for the worlds largest Arch Bridge

 They do things differently in Dubai. They like their stuff bigger, taller, and more expensive than anywhere else. So it only makes sense that construction of the world’s tallest arch bridge begins next month.

The bridge will peak at 670 feet, have 12 lanes of traffic, and handle up to 2,000 vehicles per hour.

Scheduled completion is slated for 2012, after $817 million in construction.

Starting February 24, Target stores across the US will be selling slim PS2s for $99. Yes, that magical, mythical $99 price-point. The advertisement specifically mentions that this is part of a sale, but with

support for the console dying off and the PS3 picking up steam, is now the time for Sony to give their ageing warhorse one last kick in the pants and adopt this price across the board?
