I just check the number of views on that blog too. 17000. Seems like you guys are getting some bonus traffic out of it, and that's always good.

CAG is a video game deal site. Since when did it need credibility for news?

Great job exposing these "news" sites for what they are Cheapy, I hope you upgrade the person who posted that picture to an LE version of whatever game he/she wants!

Cheapness never gets old.
On another note, as for Viva Pinata, I like the concept of the game, but I stopped playing the first one because of a constant feeling of being overwhelmed. Just too many items to sell before they go bad, or bad pinatas, or fights/unwanted snacks. More dealing with annoyances rather than doing the things I wanted to do, like catching, romancing, or evolving. Maybe the co-op mode in the sequel would go a way toward helping deal with that drowning feeling that comes from the endless set of tasks.

Cheapy, what kind of camera are you sporting? You said you had one that records directly to SD cards.
I'd like to know this as well.

In the 1940s, Captain Marvel was actually more popular than Superman. As you note, DC sued Fawcett, and eventually obtained the rights to the character. Decades later, Marvel comics sued for the trademark rights to the name "Captain Marvel," and won (there is a Marvel Comics superhero called "Captain Marvel," though usually spelled "Mar-vell"). So, while the character is still Captain Marvel, no marketing material may use that name, so when Captain Marvel has had a solo comic published by DC the title has been some variation of "Shazam" (Power of Shazam, etc.).
Sort of, Capt Marvel was created by Fawcett comics (which is why Capt Marvel lives in Fawcett city) and was sued by DC for being Superman clone. DC eventually bought the rights to the character but can only use the name Capt Marvel when in the comics, outside of comics he is Shazam
On a tangental note, DC no longer owes the IP rights to "Superboy," so that name and basic character have been "ret-conned" out of the DC universe. Early adventures of Superman now make reference to "Young Superman."
