Rupert Murdoch's Fox corporation have just bought IGN (games website). Which if (like me) you think newscorp is the cause of most of the world's ills :p isn't exactly great news.

Still, in better news for a free press, a Saudi prince has bought a 5% share in Newscorp in order to help out Murdoch from a possible takeover bid.
Expect many stories of a fair and balanced perspective about the wonderfully human-rights aware saudi's and their amazing computer games... :p

And here's a link for good measure. (http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2005/09/09/BUG3KEKHKE1.DTL)

Not quite sure what to think of this right now... I don't know if this will be a good thing or a bad thing. Guess we'll find out.

A "Why George Bush is a good president" speech every time you post.

Ehh, thats okay, I got to IGN to post sometimes, but really use GameSpot for all of my game stuff.

I've done some thinking. I think that IGN will remain the same, except Fox's logo will be put everywhere... which doesn't make that much of a difference. And if you don't like the logo you can always adblock it :D
