Metal Gear Solid Revengeance on Steam "Any Day Now"

A Kojima Productions podcast has word that the promised PC edition of Metal Gear Solid Revengeance is in "the final stages right now," and the console stealth game will "pop up on Steam any day now." Thanks VG247.

MechWarrior Online's $500 Gold Mechs

Piranha has introduced a new series of gold clan mechs for MechWarrior Online, their free-to-play MMO mech combat game. In addition to the obvious camouflage advantages of their gold skins is word that "the Khan Collections provide pilots participating in Operation Revival with the most exclusive and treasured of Clan Technologies." Just be sure to hide the credit card receipts from your significant other, as one of these bad boys will set you back US$500.00, and there is no bulk discount, so buying all eight will cost $4000.00. Better hurry, they say these are available in limited quantities. Thanks Rhialto.

Out of the Blue

We had plans for the today, but mother nature had it in for us with a heavy winter storm just getting underway in these parts, which is intimidating, since I just saw a report that the center of this storm is currently over St. Louis, which is not exactly part of the greater New York area. When we were looking at this early in the week the forecast for today showed a 40% chance of some snow late in the day. Every day following that the projected chance of snow increased and the start time of the storm crept earlier so by yesterday and earlier to the point yesterday where they were calling it a 100% chance of snow to begin around 10:00 am. I got up at 7:30 and we already had an inch on the ground, and they've extended the hazardous weather outlook through tomorrow morning, so it was not a mistake to cancel our plans by any stretch. I think the replacement plan is going to involve shoveling and hot cocoa.
