…Grand Theft Auto is special?

Grand Theft Auto

Usually around the third or fourth iteration of a popular game, the designers decide that there are enough fans to warrant a special collector’s edition.

Though collector’s editions usually filled with a bunch of stuff that no one needs, they’re gobbled up by hard-core fans that want to raise their 1337 level by a few points at the next gaming get-together.

Apparently Grand Theft Auto has reached that point, because with the release of GTAIV coming up, they’ve announced a pre-orderable special edition that comes with a metal safety deposit box, special packaging, an art book with never-before-seen production artwork, a soundtrack CD filled with exclusive material, a Rockstar keychain, and a duffel bag to hold it all. Plus, order through Amazon, and you’ll even get a Liberty City license plate to round out the collection!

…It’s Things Thursday: Chuck Palahniuk’s Snuff?

Chuck Palahniuk’s SnuffChuck Palahniuk is definitely my favorite author, so when I read the summary of his upcoming book, Snuff, I immediately hit the pre-order button:

    Cassie Wright, porn priestess, intends to cap her legendary career by breaking the world record for serial fornication. On camera. With six hundred men. SNUFF unfolds from the perspectives of Mr. 72, Mr. 137, and Mr. 600, who await their turn on camera in a very crowded green room. This wild, lethally funny, and thoroughly researched novel brings the huge yet underacknowledged presence of pornography in contemporary life into the realm of literary fiction at last. Who else but Chuck Palahniuk would dare do such a thing? Who else could do it so well, so unflinchingly, and with such an incendiary (you might say) climax?

Sounds like another bestseller to me.

…Leopard is coming?

Apple Leopard

The date has finally been finalized; On Friday, October 26, 2007, Apple will release Leopard, its latest operating system, to hoards of screaming Apple fanboys.

Ok, so it might not be that dramatic, but considering how long it’s been since their last release, a new OS is kind of a big deal. Plus, as Vista continues to flounder, it’s time once again for Apple to one up the ‘Soft boys.

Looking to get in on the action? Amazon has a pre-order deal going on right now, and you can save $20 if you’re willing to wait a few days for shipping.

Check out Apple’s site for a list of the over 300 new features that Leopard is bringing, and prepare to be upgraded.

…MASH makes fixed gear bikes look like fun?

MASH

When I heard the words ‘fixed gear bikes’ and ‘DVD’ used together, I had my doubts about how good a movie about the somewhat artsy bikes could be, but after watching the trailer, I will humbly accept defeat.

Despite a lack of gears, pegs, shocks, or comfort of any kind normally associated with trick bikes, the Mash SF crew manages to make this sport look like a ton of fun.

The DVD includes their hour-long feature film, an extra hour of outtakes, and a 120-page book of project photos and explanations.

Why wait? Pre-order now.
