In this debut episode of Gamehounds, Edie Sellers and Cooper Hawkes (formerly of GamerAndy Live!) catch you up on where they’ve been in the last few months. Of course, they also discuss the latest in video-gaming news, including:
– Microsoft offers $44 billion for Yahoo! If they have that much money to burn, how about showing your favorite podcasters some love?
– Jim Ward, president of LucasArts goes “poof!” Did he get fired? Did he leave? Is he the new editor at GameSpot?
– Rock Band coming to the Wii! How did we know? Because the new stand-alone microphone is Wii compatable… oh wait… no it’s not!
– GamePro tests console controller battery life. Guess who wins? Clue: When was the last time you changed your battery on your 360 controller? Answer: Well, it would have been a hell of a lot sooner if you had a PS3.
– Microsoft discontinues cheaper price for Rock Band indy DLC tracks. Is someone unclear on the idea of the purpose of indy songs on Rock Band?
