The 13th Doctor Has Now Been Revealed

Alright, so lets get this out of the way right here, and right now. As you can tell the next Doctor is a woman, and there are many, many, many people out there who are screaming from the rooftops about how the series is now ruined, and how they will no longer be watching the show because this is the latest attempt at being PC. So let me say one thing, "Grow Up!". Look where in the mythos of the Doctor does it say that it has to be a man? Where in the mythos does it say the Doctor even has to look human? How can so many people pass judgement on someone without ever seeing this person perform their role? Seriously, I know that many people believe that this is a money grab, that this is just to potentially broaden the viewing audience, while losing some viewers.

If the viewer is a HARDCORE Whovian, they will stay with the series, if they decide that they can't support the show any more... well that is too bad that their true colors finally show. If this move, to cast Jodie Whittaker as the Doctor, gives me more Doctor Who episodes, I'm totally okay with it, and hell the question that should be burning in everyone's mind is who the next companion is going to be. The slate is completely clean at this point.

SEGA Starts to Release Entire Game Library

Now I know what you are thinking, how much per game? Well oddly enough they are free, all you'll need to have as an iOS device or an Android device. Now that doesn't mean that all the games are going to be available day 1. SEGA is going to do an every 2 weeks release type of scenario.

You might be thinking to yourself, but how are they going to make money, everyone needs to make some money, right? Well there is one more catch and that is that there will be advertisements sprinkled around your gaming experience. So the question is do you want a ton of free games that are quality (well most of them, I'm sure there are some games that don't need remembering), but you have to watch advertisements from time to time, or do you just want to shut that door to nostalgia central? Personally, I grew up a Nintendo kid, but I know that there are definitely games out there that appeared on different SEGA consoles that I really like.

343 Industries to Allow Fan-Made Halo Game to Continue

Well isn't this something. In a world where most IP holders are quick to squash out anyone who would dare to mimic their sacred property, you have 343 Industries (basically Microsoft) giving the green light to the developers to continue in their project Installation 01. Now of course there are a couple of rules for the continuation of the project. The first is, of course, that they cannot profit from this game. They cannot accept money for anything that has to do with the game. Any money that is involved in the creation of this project must be directly from those working on the project.

I have to say that I'm surprised, impressed, and hopefully that maybe other entities might be willing to allow fans to put their spin on IPs, as long as they are not profiting from it. Oh and those creators probably want to put feelers out early to the IP holders, just in case.
