To Aion's housing we go! Oh, if only it were that simple! And quick. 'Cause I got my hiking boots on and am raring to go. Heck, I will even wade through rivers of enemy blood to get me some housing!

This time around, it's the Twitpocalypse -- apparently Twitter decided to use a unique identifier in their API for each separate tweet that goes out, and come sometime this wee...

The Wii Ware file size cap discussed by IGN is inaccurate, according to a statement made to Eurogamer by Nintendo. The Nintendo spokesperson chose not to offer details, but provided much less clearly-defined file size rules: "I can confirm as we originally said at the announcement of the Wii Ware s...

Xbox 360 addicts, particularly ones under the age of 18 (or still camping out in your 'rents crib), take note: a "Family Timer" could be wrecking your habitual play as early as next month.
