    Interested in seeing a Half-Life movie? Well, we can't give you that, unfortunately. We can, however, give you this fan-made trailer. What? What kind of trade off is that, you ask? It was put together by Marco Spitoni, who works for Weta. Yeah. Lord of the Rings and District 9 Weta.

    Japanese School Accidentally Named After Erotic Game [UPDATED]

    The city of Higashine in Japan is currently finishing the construction of a new elementary school, and decided to name the building after their prefecture's famed cherries, which can sell for $30 a pound. Unfortunately for them, Higashine Shiritsu Sakuranbo Shougakkou (Higashine Municipal Cherry Elementary School) shares 75% of its words with Shiritsu Sakuranbo Shougakkou, a "doujin adult game brand."

    Steam in Hot Water in South Korea

    Kotaku reports that South Korean authorities have been cracking down over the weekend on unrated games, and this may mean considerable bad things for Korean Steam users. Korean law states that all games available to the public must be rated by the Game Rating Board. That's all well and nice, except that game makers must pay to get their game rated, and many cannot afford the price. When South Korea says all games, they mean all games. Tiny indie games, flash-based or mobile whatsits, big blockbusters, and everything in between. Team Liquid, a StarCraft community site, reports that Steam games may even be in the sights of Korean authorities.

    Settlers of Catan Looks Awesome On the Microsoft Surface

    We personally got a look at 4th edition D&D on the Microsoft Surface at this year's PAX East, and even though purchasing one is just a leeetle bit outside our price range for gaming accessories ($10,000) we still get super excited to see what new features get rolled out for the product. Why? Because it reminds us that we live in the future now.

    Wii Balance Board Use #357: Making Disabled Babies Mobile

    Four researchers at Ithaca College have addressed the problem of disabled infant mobility in a unique way. Unlike older disabled individuals, babies "lack the subtle grasp of grasping things" as Kotaku puts it. Things like the joysticks of electronic wheelchairs. How do babies instinctively move, however? By leaning towards what they want. Well, you know what relatively cheap and common electronic device can tell where you are leaning? A Wii Balance Board.

    Blockbuster Sets Date For Its Bankruptcy

    According to The LA Times, Blockbuster and its biggest debtors have already discussed their plans to declare bankruptcy by mid-September with Fox, Paramount, Sony, Universal, Disney and Warner Bros.
    Blockbuster has lost a total of $1.1 billion since the beginning of 2008 and has been severely hamstrung in efforts to grow its business due to interest payments on $920 million in debt. Earlier this month the company announced that most of its debt holders had agreed to a forbearance on interest payments until Sept. 30, during which time it would attempt a recapitalization.
    Blockbuster's bankruptcy looks like it's going to be something of a tangled mess of retail vs. Hollywood vs. digital connections.

    (Mostly) Live Action Ad for Metroid: Other M

    In an unusual move for them these days, Nintendo has created a mostly live action ad for the imminent release of Metroid: Other M, the latest game to feature the armor plated, ball-morphing bounty hunter Samus Aran. It's pretty, has a brooding voice over, and features a lot of slow motion... To be honest, if everybody's just going to take the Halo 3: ODST advertising route, we're perfectly okay with that.
