Fable tradition, insulting villagers in Fable 2 will once again earn you a fun name, like "Arseface." However, this time, they want your help.
Jump onto the community (from the link), and submit your favorite insults to be included in the new game. Here are the rules:
The insults should be puerile, but not too puerile, sound at least somewhat original, and not cross a certain line (as an example, "gobshite" has been rejected because, while it might sound funny and wacky to American ears, it's still a bit too strong for Fable and British ears). The thing to remember is that it's a way for Fable villagers to call the Hero an arsehole because they hate him/her and obviously needs to work for both genders.
We here at PLuGHiTz Live! feel that any attempt to help a charity is a good idea, and when it comes along with participating in videogames, it is even better. So, we were really excited to hear that an MMO Calendar had been produced for 2008, with proceeds going to help
St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
The calendar will be illustrated with original artwork from the universes of some of the great MMOs. In addition to the calendar, and helping children, you will also get the possibility of being part of Betas and passes to games.

Yesterday, shareholders approved the acquisition of XM by Sirius after 10 months of deliberation. The merged company promises more programming options, better packages and exciting hardware. Sirius already has great programming, including Howard Stern, with most sports programming, and the addition of XM's sports programming will create an unbeatable system. On top of that, the new Sirius TV, which might be launching on the new Sportster 5 receiver, makes this a must-have product. Let's hope the morons in Washington don't screw this up.
