Earlier this week, Capcom opened a countdown site at capcom.co.jp/DD, which displays a timer that will elapse on April 12, and the outline of a dragon.

It's a sure thing that if you put a countdown on your site, gamers will start speculating rampantly as to what it means.

True to its name, news on Dark Energy Digital's episodic XBLA (puzzle? horror? action?) game, Hydrophobia, has been the very definition of a trickle.

C'mon, cut us some slack here. We're suckers for teasers, and our intuition says that you are too. Jabra, who has definitely done a thing or two for the Bluetooth headset realm, is apparently looking to reveal a "new shape" on October 20th, though it'll only be sold through AT&T (at least init...
