Thanks for Sharing: A Guide to Facebook Statuses

A lot of things about Facebook have changed (for better or for worse) since its inception. One of the staples of the Facebook experience, the status update, has developed over the years, but not entirely because of Mark Zuckerberg’s attempts to turn Facebook into a Twitter clone. Yea, gone are the times of simple status update suggestions like “___ is tired”. Statuses commonly fall into one or more of these categories.

X-Wing and TIE Fighter Return?

Following the success of The Secret of Monkey Island relaunch on the Xbox Live Arcade, LucasArts' Darrell Rodriguez hinted at a similar release of the classic X-Wing and TIE Fighter series. Nothing has been confirmed (of course), especially whether they would return as reworked XBLA titles or that LucasArts is planing a resurrection of the games. Either possibility is rather intriguing.
TIE Fighter was (and still is) one of my favorite classic Star Wars PC games. Come to think of it, a lot of my old favorites were Star Wars games. What happened to you LucasArts? You used to make such great games... I've been considering it for a while, and I think a Dark Forces remake for XBLA is where it's at. They did Doom and Marathon; why not let Kyle Katarn take a crack at it?
