It has been well documented on SSWL that I am a huge fan of the Gran Turismo series. An update to GT5 has been discussed for awhile, but the recent natural disasters in Japan coupled with an office relocation has led to Polyphony Digital falling behind on major updates to the game. However, minor game play tweaks and regular updates to seasonal events have still occurred in spite of all this, making an already awesome game an even more enjoyable experience. All that being said, I came across an article on one of my favorite GT related sites (gtplanet.net) which detailed some of the major things coming with the Spec 2.0 update as well as the DLC that’s coming soon after. Check it out here and be sure to buy the game while you are at it. With its recent price drop, you can get the game at most major retailers for about $40 bucks. I’ll probably be gushing about it on the show this week.

X-Box 360 Controller Soap Bar

I was reading this great story on a Soap Designer, Chrystal Doucett. Please insert a Fight Club reference here.  She founded a company called DigitalSoaps, which make  a line of geeky vegan soaps that are shaped like popular video game controllers.  You can read more by clicking on the link below.

Hello everyone and welcome to the SSWL Network news desk. We are posting this to let you all know that we are taking this week off. However, we will be posting a non-audio version of the show later this week. Basically that means we will have a full rundown (movie/video game/tech news, flix we pix, other randomness, etc.) of what we usually cover,  but without the audio. So keep checking back  for that and thanks for reading/listening.
