So, what's everyone doing to celebrate the greatest holiday on our calendar? I already went to Howl-O-Scream for the zombie goodness of this year's theme, but I'm still lacking a costume for the parties tonight
. I'm thinking...
Anyone else dressing up, or acting a fool in some other creative way?

|Model-turned-actress Milla Jovovich has confirmed there will be another Resident Evil film in the franchise and movie bosses have decided to shoot it in earthquake-ravaged Japan.|
The fourth movie in the series, Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D, was released last year (10), debuting at the top of the U.S. box office chart, and Jovovich admitted at the time she would love to make another installment.
Now she has revealed a fifth movie is being planned by telling her fans on Twitter.com, "I love Tokyo! 1 (sic) of my favourite cities in the world! We're gonna come film some scenes 4 (sic) the nxt (next) RE (Resident Evil) in Tokyo!!!"
Jovovich is pleased they are filming in the country following the devastating earthquake and tsunami which hit the region earlier this year (11), adding, "I pray 4 (sic) Japan everyday and I can't wait 2 (sic) go there and shoot the nxt (sic) RE!"
Here's a screencap of Ms. Blabbermouth's Twitter page:
If Paul corrects her, I'll edit this thread. In the meantime, what are we thinking--who's looking forward to continuing the movie franchise and who wants it dead?

It's the 15th anniversary for Resident Evil, and Capcom is celebrating with a big collaboration. The company is teaming up with EA to promote the game.
EA is the name of a shooting bar in Tokyo's Musashino area. Not a gun shooting bar, of course, as guns are totally illegal in Japan. The name "EA" is actually just a terribly misguided spelling for "Air," as in air gun shooting.
From May 20 through June 19, EA will see its interior redesigned to look like the office of S.T.A.R.S., one of the central organizations in the Resident Evil story. Fans will be able to enjoy air shooting in this game-themed environment, which includes special zombie-styled targets.
When you're done shooting, you can recover with food from a collaborative menu that includes items with such names as "Three Herb Cocktail." The shop will also show a 15th anniversary video and the latest Resident Evil items.Source

|Days after Anon's hack attack, PSN is still experiencing widespread outages and there seems to be no sign of the Guy Fawkes collective yielding anytime soon.|
This global group of hackers, best known for defending WikiLeaks, attacking the websites of the Westboro Baptist Church and, of course, YouTube Porn Day – has now turned their attention to Sony.
They first launched a successful DDoS attack on the company, bringing Sony.com and Playstation.com down for several hours on Monday. They've since brought down the Playstation Network repeatedly (much to the chagrin of gamers worldwide) and even the website of the firm handling Sony's case against GeoHot.
For those of you who had no prior knowledge of this crisis, Anonymous itself has created an effective visual representation of their declaration against their titan adversary. Please excuse the typos- they're from the internets.
|It all began when Sony took legal action against hackers/jailbreakers George "GeoHot" Hotz and Alexander "Graf_Chokolo" Egorenkov after they began to use homemade programs on their PS3's, violating Sony’s terms of service (which neither of them supposedly agreed to.) The issue ignited a debate regarding the rights of consumers and their products, claiming that the system they purchased is theirs to use as they see fit in their own homes. Sony disagreed.|
Thus, Anon saw it fit to strike back at the corporation by essentially shutting down its digital marketplace after mounting a coordinated attack via IRC.
They've also released this video via YouTube saying that Sony will now "feel the wrath of Anonymous" and that "These attacks will continue until we are completely satisfied with the outcome"
Anon also claims to be seizing sensitive information from Sony executives, such as a financial data as well as personal details (family members' names, address, etc.) with the hopes of using it against the corporation. Some users have been able to access the network despite these attacks, but many more are completely incapable of logging on. Sony does not openly acknowledge the involvement of Anonymous "activists," but has stated that it suspects foul play.
"We are currently investigating, including the possibility of targeted behavior of an outside party...If this is indeed caused by such act, we want to once again thank our customers who have borne the brunt of the attack through interrupted service. Our engineers are working to restore and maintain the services, and we appreciate our customers’ continued support."
- Patrick Seybold, Sony Senior Director of Corporate Communications and Social Media
Seybold has posted an update on the Playstation Blog (the European version of the blog reportedly went down some time ago for a brief period of time, supposedly due to Anon’s efforts), stating that they were working to bring the network back online. It’s expected that the first news of the PSN’s repair will appear on that same blog, so bookmark it and refresh every ten minutes until you get what you want. Sony’s been occupied with Anon’s assault for several days and it may be some time before the network is up and running again. So just sit back and watch the internet at its finest.
Sigh… somebody wake me when I can finally download Final Fantasy VII.
Anonymous has released another video listing their 3 major demands of Sony.
The demands are as follows:
- Sony must allow for end-user modification of the PS3, as was available prior to the 3.21 firmware update.
- Sony must end any attempts to bring legal action to alter a product they own.
- Sony must not pursue legal action against any collected IP address.
Anonymous has received negative backlash from PSN users and because of this, has adjusted their battleplan:
"Anonymous is on your side, standing up for your rights. We are not aiming to attack customers of Sony. This attack is aimed solely at Sony, and we will try our best to not affect the gamers, as this would defeat the purpose of our actions. If we did inconvenience users, please know that this was not our goal."

|Seems to me that a French Sony employee has leaked some details regarding what Sony has in store at E3 this year. There are rumors about NGP, Metal Gear, a possible interest from Bungie, and plenty more.|
Please note these leaked details are only rumors. However, the members of the forums state that the user who has revealed these details also leaked details for E3 2009 that matched up exactly with what was revealed that year.
- No announcement of price reduction, but this does not mean the console will not decline this year.
- Confirmation on the official name, pricing and release date of the NGP.
- There will be 7 first party titles revealed for the NGP
- The Wipeout engine has been ported over to the NGP.
- Another Metal Gear game on its way in the future.
- Sony will reveal titles that will not be available until Christmas 2012.
- Warhawk sequel might be revealed before E3
- Twisted Metal, Resistance 3, Uncharted 3 and the Last Guardian will be playable at E3
- GTA V, could be released before Agent was planned to be
- Bungie might be in a big battle with Sony, so the game would be their next project with Activision.
