Do I look like a cat to you, boy? Do you see me jumpin' around all...nimbly-bimbly?!
- After suggesting last year that it would be some time before this happened, Dave Grohl has confirmed that he's heading to LA today to begin work on a new Foo Fighters album. Of course, "begin work" could easily be translated to "write down a few things," but then again, Grohl's the kind of guy who is always busy and seems to thrive on it. The last Foo Fighters record was Wasting Light from 2011.
- Pearl Jam's debut album Ten celebrated a huge milestone yesterday as it passed the ten million sold mark in the US. The record has been out since 1991, the same year that Nielsen began tracking sales, and is the 22nd album to ever hit that milestone. The highest-selling album since 1991? That would be Metallica's self-titled release, with over 15 million copies sold.
- Universal could be looking to turn Mama into a franchise. The Guillermo del Toro-produced horror flick has made almost $90 million thus far, and it seems that the studio sees potential for sequels. Haven't seen it personally yet, so I can't really comment...just don't make seven of them, please?
- Christian Bale is currently eyeing the lead role in Everest, a film about the disastrous expedition of the famous mountain in 1996. No relation to Everest, the upcoming film starring Tom Hardy about George Mallory's three attempts in the 1920's to be the first man up the famous mountain. Yes, you read that right: Batman and Bane are racing up Mount Everest. Your argument is invalid.
- For as much as we heard about the Playstation 4 on Wednesday during the big reveal, a couple of rumors were left hanging (and no, not what the thing looks like--even Sony doesn't know that yet.) To wrap those up: the PS4 will not attempt to block used games, and it will not require a constant internet connection. Those rumors were just that: unfounded speculation. Huzzah! Now, give me backwards compatibility and a solid price point, and we're talking.
- New DLC is on the way for DmC: Devil May Cry, according to Capcom. Vergil's Downfall will include the ability to play as Dante's titular brother, plus a new storyline, weapons, enemies, locations, and more, all for around nine or ten bucks when it launches on the PSN, XBLA, and PC March 5th.
Kick this weekend in the bean-bag, and I'll see you Monday! 'Til then, true believers...ROCK!
