I'm gonna pistol-whip the next guy who says "shenanigans!"
- Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor is seemingly always busy with side projects, and his latest--a group known as How to Destroy Angels--will release their debut album, Welcome to Oblivion, on March 4th.
- The rumors of Fall Out Boy's breaking up have apparently been greatly exaggerated, as the group is coming back from a several-year-long hiatus to release a new album May 7th titled Save Rock and Roll. The first single from the new offering features rapper 2 Chainz. Make your own jokes, people.
- Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed yesterday that the company is not only working on a new Star Wars trilogy, but several stand-alone films as well, one of which may focus stricly on Jedi master Yoda. It's rumored that even Jabba the Hutt could receive his own film, but I think we'd all be surprised if Boba Fett didn't get some love from this type of project.
- THIS JUST IN: CANNONBALL! Kristen Wiig has officially joined the cast of Anchorman 2, which begins principal photography next month for a Christmas release. No solid word on her role yet, but it's possible she'll be playing the wife of Brick Tamland (Steve Carrell.)
- In celebration of the series 25th anniversary, many of the original Final Fantasy titles are on sale for half-off in the Playstation Network Store for the next two weeks...supposedly. I personally tried it out last night and didn't see a price drop, but it may be working now...go find out for me, someone! I need my FFVIII fix!
- The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was officially announced yesterday as coming to PC and "high-end platforms" sometime next year, meaning that the series will probably be an early title for the next iterations of the Playstation and the XBox. More details on the game will be available in the next issue of Game Informer magazine.
'Til Thursday, my bros and more...ROCK!
