They cut out a bit - the screens have footage of the 360 version of Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer...360 included of course.
Kid Nemo has a lovely Ignis (Jingai Makyo) figure up for preorder that will set you back a mere $103.99. Being from a galge - of course her skirt & top are removeable. (Dear otaku, stop touching your figures in that way. You're creeping the rest of us out) I wish this character didn't have such great design . ;_;
"Transformers producer Tom DeSanto has secured the film rights to NCsoft and Cryptic Studio's video game City of Heroes. The plan is to adapt the massively multiplayer online role-playing game into a live-action feature and then transition it to television in some form, the trade paper reported. The movie revolves around a group of superheroes who live in Paragon City and must team up in order to fight an invasion of aliens known as the Rikti. "
For those that were in the beta - the Rikti were introduced as a giant event at the end of the beta period. Testing is over - time to drop aliens on your head! Next to Lord Recluse, the Rikti are the main high level mobs. I can only assume that the Freedom Phalanx (big NPCs) will be the heroes of the movie (Statesman, Positron, Manticore, Synapse, & Sister Psyche) I assume the 'lower level' npcs will make appearances but you never know, because there are so many of them (Ms Liberty, Back Alley Brawler (I hate that guy) Numina, Swan, Mynx, Infernal, (hate that guy too) etc etc.)
Having played both games for a couple of years (I want to go back!) I look forward to this movie. Americans love the spandex. Oh by the way, that's my villian in the picture - I'm the giant guy with no neck. Kotaku and SciFi.com

Seems a bit...hokey to me, but free is free and I liked Cutie Honey Live Action so there's no accounting for taste. Up for a limited time, so get going.

In a world of spy mystery and intrigue… discover who she kisses one minute and kills the next.
Don't illegally dump your trash or Ryuk will come get you! To protect against illegal trash dumping, mini torii gates are being erected. If you’re Japanese, you’re bound to have some sort of fear of the gods. We started making them because we thought that if you stick a torii gate up in an area where people have been illegally dumping trash, people are going to think twice before throwing anything else away for fear that the gods may punish them and won’t dump anything" via Japan Probe
JapanSugoi has some great footage of Harajuku fashion. I swore I saw some Psycho le Cemu & Malice Mizer cosplay in there. In related news, Tokyopop will be releasing an English version of the Gothic Lolita Bible - for those time you absolutely MUST 'get your bonnet on'. (via aO)

In a brief Google run, it seems someone has posted a live mp3 of the song here. (It wasn't me so I didn't rip it in the first place and I can't repost it when the link dies.)
