The one unwinnable game in FreeCell
From the page: "A climactic conflict with a unique, stronger than average, and often monstrous enemy creature. It has several important features based on the genre of game in which it is found."
From the page: "Forget liberty - give us residuals or give us death. It's a sentiment shared by countless actors, and one most poignantly offered by Michael Hollick, better known as the voice of GTA IV's immigrant star, Niko Bellic.
In a New York Times article, Hollick revealed that he earned about $100,000 for 15 months of work recording dialogue for his role as GTA IV's protagonist. The game, however, has gone on to rake in over $600 million in a mere two weeks."
From the page: "This is hard for me. This editorial means that I am willing to admit it. It's like admitting your children have flaws. However, this is necessary to write down and admit it: JRPGs need help. I love them dearly, and my fondest memories as a gamer stem from JRPGs of yore."

From the page: "Contrary to widespread belief, teenagers do not appear to commonly engage in oral sex as a way to preserve their virginity, according to the first study to examine the question nationally.
The analysis of a federal survey of more than 2,200 males and females aged 15 to 19, released yesterday, found that more than half reported having had oral sex. But those who described themselves as virgins were far less likely to say they had tried it than those who had had intercourse."

From the page: "I've noticed that as a group, socially unskilled people tend be more negative than average. I say this in every article, but this is something I've struggled with as well. I've most certainly turned people off in the past by being too cynical or pointing out the flaws in things. I'm not as bad now, but I still catch myself being negative more often than I'd like."
From the page: "There are games that are downright fun to play, and then there are games that are downright fun to play fast! Now not many of us have the patience, time, skill and resources to play like a real pro. Luckily for us folk, there are those who do. Speedrunning has quickly turned into a popular gaming 'sport'. It's simple: beat a game, or part thereof, in as fast a time as possible."
From the page: "As editor of a pop culture blog and a former writer for Cracked.com, I deeply understand that The Amusing Top 10 List is possibly the most effective vehicle of internet comedy delivery in the universe. But while these posts might seem like Digg-baiting link lay-ups, a certain art and a craft goes into writing them. And like most fine arts, list writing can be totally encapsulated in an easy-to-digest eight step guide."
From the page: "Blizzard's worldwide headquarters in Irvine, CA. Less than a week after Blizzard opened the doors to an international group of writers from across the globe, we were invited down a closed, head-to-head play session of StarCraft II -- just the two of us, playing the Terran, Protoss, and newly-revamped Zerg as we saw fit. And play we did over six long, brutal (for Jeff, anyway) hours of real-time strategizing."
From the page: "Anyone glancing at 2007 boxoffice numbers might have noticed a striking absence of star power. Only four of the top 25 domestic grossers were driven primarily by movie stars -- the lowest number in history.
The data captures what is becoming a seismic and industry-reshaping phenomenon: A-list talent is having trouble packing multiplexes based on star wattage alone."
From the page: "The sun's movement through the Milky Way regularly sends comets hurtling into the inner solar system Ã¢â,¬âoe coinciding with mass life extinctions on earth, a new study claims."
From the page: "Marine scientists in New Zealand on Tuesday were thawing the corpse of the largest squid ever caught to try to unlock the secrets of one of the ocean's most mysterious beasts."

From the page: "Often when you feel like you've changed it seems like no one else acknowledges it. You've been away from home, you've done a lot of new things, you've put a lot of work into yourself, you feel like a different person. But everyone still treats you the same way. They still use the same annoying labels to describe you. You're still held back by your past reputation."
From the page: "There are many notable questions to be asked on Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, one of Japanese-headquartered publisher Capcom's most high profile developments right now.
The game - which is a hi-def re-imagining of the classic Street Fighter II with both original and remixed gameplay modes - will launch for digital download on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network in the near future.
In this interview, Backbone Entertainment lead designer and competitive SFII player David Sirlin talks with Gamasutra about the design decisions he has implemented in working with Capcom on the game and why - arguing that accessibility is possible without damaging high-level play."
From the page: "This has a nice sound to it, but it isn't true. Google's founders were willing to sell early on. They just wanted more than acquirers were willing to pay.
It was the same with Facebook. They would have sold, but Yahoo blew it by offering too little."
