Anyone Seeing Popups?

Michael is telling me that he is seeing popups whenever he visits InsideMicrosoft. Is anyone else having this problem? I need to find out if one of the advertisers/plugins here is playing dirty, if we’ve been hacked, or if I have to deliver to Michael the bad news that he might have spyware. If you have seen a popup on this blog, ever, leave a comment letting me know when it happened.

Bully Coming To Xbox 360, Wii

Rockstar has announced it will be bringing Bully to the Xbox 360 and Wii this Winter. Bully is an open-world game in the style of Grand Theft Auto, but it takes place at a New England boarding school and is far less violent than critics had originally feared.

I was very excited about Bully when I first heard about it, and extremely dissapointed when I didn’t get to play it because it was PlayStation 2 only, so the 360 version is officially on my holiday gaming shopping list. With Bully and GTA IV, I should have enough of this style of gameplay to carry me for months.

Bully: Scholarship Edition, ships this Winter and will contain new content, and, presumably, updated graphics from the PS2 version. It’s probably too much to ask that it use the R.A.G.E. engine, right? At the very least, it shouldn’t cost $60, I hope.
