Play Tetris?  Would you still play Tetris with subscription fees?  EA releases Tetris for iOS devices (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch) for $0.99, included with an online ranking system.   You then can pay an additional monthly subscription fee of $2.99 (or $29.99 per year) in exchange for... uh, I dunno......... how about.... FASTER online ranking?!!    :wacky: :deal2:

According to all sources I've found (despite EA's claims), literally the only thing the monthly fees give you is a minor boost to your precious "Tetris Rank" compared to players who only paid $1.  That's it.  To make the spectacle even more questionable, this is all powered by Origin (poor man's equivalent of Steam; far buggier and plagued with privacy issues), further expanding the reach of EA's new distribution platform.  Stay classy, EA.

My friend did. He liked it so much it made me want to give it a try.

Two days ago I was changing channels and bumped into G4's Xplay, a section came out called "games for rich people" there they mentioned Xenoblade Chronicles a popular RPG game from japan that had no chance of coming out in the US... and that you could only find the imported copy on ebay for 100 bucks or more... once again G4 proves to be the most untrusted video game source....

I mean your'e probably right, I thought about it too is just that the episode was aired recently that's what surprised me... but nonetheless you could be right about that tho...

    "Postal III, the outrageous third installment in the legendary POSTAL franchise is finally coming to town" said Vince Desi, scary mall Santa and RWS CEO.

    Not even an Al Gore weather forecast could have predicted the difficulties in seeing this project through. When we started development, Cheney was President, Bin Laden was rubbing his magic lamp to bad Pakistani pr0n and Obamacare wasn't but a dream of an inexperienced community organizer. "Oh how the world has changed" Desi continued; "Peace, Joy and Postal III to everyone around the world".

Postal III gets finally released, short before christmas. I wait for reviews..if it is as crazy as Postal 2 was i have to get it i guess

I personally don't like the Postal series, the most entertainment you can get out of that game is a laugh IMO.
(If your sense of humor is tasteless, that is.)
