Chances are you own at least one high tech, handheld gadget, whether it be an iPod, iPhone, PSP, or other device capable of playing back movies. It's also a safe bet to say you probably don't look forward to transcoding your favorite flicks into a compatible format, particularly when dealing with HD content. That's what makes CyberLink's achievement so noteworthy.
Only a couple of days until Blizzard's big announcement, and I'm sure you're squirming in your seat with unbridled excitement. It's a shame, then, that nothing's really happened concerning that story since yesterday. Wait! Don't go! Someone designed Pokemon in the Spore Creature Creator. That's cool, right? Jump past the break to read more about the creatively-named Sporemon as well as news of much more significance.

A veritable avalanche of news hit today, so let’s get right on it. Otherwise, the sacrifices of the bloggers who bore the brunt of the news will be in vain.
Welcome, guys and gals, to the inaugural edition of the Gaming Roundup. The aim of this little column? Well, if you can’t deduce that from reading the title, then Lord bless you, at least you’re trying. Regardless, I implore you to sit back, relax, and enjoy some gaming news in tiny, fun-sized pieces.
