The Dark Knight Rises Shooting.

In Aurora, Colorado, a 24 year old army veteran named James Holmes has allegedly opened fire in a Century movie theater during a screening of 'The Dark Knight Rises'. At least 12 people have been killed and as many as 38 people injured.

The Dark Knight Rises has just opened today, and I'm sure many of you have already seen it. If you haven't, don't let this scare you into not seeing it.

Blizzard Paying Users To Speak Well About Diablo?

According to Shady Internet Site #8, Blizzard has been paying hackers $5 a day to post on other sites and say good things about Diablo. Personally, I think It's bogus. Unless these guys are getting Blizzard 10+ subscribers a day, this wouldn't exactly be profitable for them. It also doesn't make sense considering how highly regarded Blizzard is as a gaming company.

Speaking of which, this whole story reminded me of back in March when a guy admitted to trolling other sites in order to make EA look good. Kind of gives meaning to the word 'Professional Troll'.

"There's about 560 full and part time people that do my (old) job at EA. Other companies have people in similar positions, no idea how many though."
