When your fame comes from getting plastered in every corner of the Internet possible, a nod in a videogame may seem a positive thing. The originators of Nyan Cat and Keyboard Cat (known in everyday life as Fatso) do not appear to agree, having hit developer 5th Cell and publisher Warner Bros. with lawsuits arguing...
You say tomato, I say tomato
At the start of this month it was revealed that Scribblenauts Unlimited would be subject to a delay in Europe. We've not been given a solid reason for the delay, but a rumour has emerged which seems plausible. According to Nintendo Nation, a GAME customer was told by a store m
