You know what the real problem is? There is nothing interesting about this video game at all. The gameplay is nonexistent, and instead of having a controller to play it. You have to sit in a theater and watch a really long cutscene. This game lacks any gameplay whatsoever.The best user review of “Wreck-It Ralph” on Metacritic.
(Update: Ernie found the Good, so I guess I can officially throw my support behind this acquisition. I’m sure the execs at Disney and Lucasfilm have been losing sleep while waiting for me to do so. — Scott @ SFB)
Custom controllers: Using a single wire placed in the soil of a potted plant — doesn’t matter whether it’s live or artificial — Disney Research has created the Botanicus Interacticus system. Through the wire, the Botanicus software can detect where/how someone is touching the plant, strokes across the plants body, or even a person’s proximity to the plant in question. The new tech is currently being displayed at the SIGGRAPH 2012 computer graphics convention in Los Angeles. Excuse us while we try to get over how weird this video is. (ht to The Verge) source

Then again, maybe Disney and Marvel realize that — after you release the third-highest grossing film of all time — you’re going to have to pay your all-star cast a bit more money to get them all back for the sequel.
Before the Mickey Mouse Club discovered the now-ubiquitous actor/hunk/superhero, Ryan Gosling was a gawky Canadian kid with a horrible bowl cut who just happened to have some nasty dance moves. Here he is in 1991, melting hearts with this angelic cover of “When a Man Loves a Woman” and breaking it down to C+C Music Factory’s “Everybody Dance Now” with his sister, Mandi.
At one point he pushes his sister out of the way to upstage her. Top that.
