While Japan has a few different PS3 colours to choose from, Americans are stuck with…black. Oh, and a silver controller. But only until October, because in October, there’ll be two new controller shades to choose from.
Those shades are “Deep Red” and “Metallic Blue”, both of which you’ve seen before as PSP colours.
Aksys Games has launched a placeholder website for Record of Agarest War, the “soul breeding” Japanese strategy RPG that is completely distracting me with its teaser image. What were we talking about again?
Oh yes! Record of Agarest! We’ve mentioned the game on several different occasions, generally in the middle of the night when the kids were tucked safely in their beds, dreaming of…well, most likely dreaming of the same sort of things we were posting. We’ve studied the undearware differences between the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions, checked out some of the game’s artwork, and we even reported on the game coming to Europe.
I’d go into detail about what the game is about, and what “Soul Breeding” entails, but I think Aksys’ choice of teaser image speaks for itself.
Picked up some new books to read for the rest of the summer, i got the 1st 7 books of the Sookie Stackhouse Series (True Blood) – By: Charlaine harris and Star Wars: Darth Bane – Path of Destruction - By: Drew Karpyshyn (Gonna star reading the Star Wars Novels in Continuity). Also went to Gamestop and picked up Star Wars: The Force Unleased for the PS3 since it was 19.99.
Popular /b/ board blocked
According to a status update by 4chan maintainer moot, AT&T is blocking its customers from accessing parts of the 4chan message boards, including /b/ (“random”), which is responsible for 30% of 4chan’s traffic.
4chan’s /b/ section is infamous for its “no rules” policy, with the only rules being a ban on certain illegal content, such as child-pornography (although virtual child-pornography is tolerated), and “invasions” (organized incursions into and flooding of other online communities).
AT&T has made no statement explaining or even confirming the action.
Originally an English spin off of the Japanese 2chan BBS, 4chan has become immensely popular in its own right.

No deal signed yet for CLAMP‘s fantasy romance manga.
The North American publisher Dark Horse Comics has revealed at its Comic-Con International panel on Saturday that it is negotiating with the Universal film studio on the rights to develop a movie based on CLAMP‘s Clover manga. However, the two companies have not made a deal yet. Dark Horse acquired the North American rights to publish the manga last year after Tokyopop had previously published it.
