Mark Trzcinski found an interesting movie that stars both Freddie Prinze Jr. and Steven Petrarca (Blair from the movie, Casey from Prophecy). It didn't seem to get a lot of press when it came out, but this one might be worth checking out just to see how they interact. Petrarca isn't in a whole lot of movies. It'd be funny if "Sparkler" was what kept him from being able to voice Casey in Secret Ops. You can find a Hollywood.com info page here and the IMDB page here.
Well Rounded has a review of XBTF up now. Whomever wrote this one seems to have been in a bit of a bad mood. The game itself is called a very poor imitation of Elite.. and Wing Commander 1 gets dissed when it's compared to the game (they also got its release date off by three years). On the other hand, XBTF doesn't get a lot of sparkling reviews really. You can find this one here. Thanks to ATFW.
Vicky Benhur reports from Bex. A mutant strain of grub has infested most of Bex's food stores, leading to the contamination of almost all Synthi Meat and Grain. Scientists are battling to come up with a solution to the problem, although the grub has proved resistant to all known pesticides. Meanwhile, the popuation is almost entirely dependent on imports. Prices are said to have inflated considerably.
