Funny News: Online game subscriptions up 43 percent in 2005

March 11, 2006: Online game subscriptions up 43 percent in 2005

World of Warcraft's popularity helps boost MMO and casual gaming to a $2 billion international payday; console games to take 29 percent of OL market by 2011.
Whatever you think of World of Warcraft, there's no denying that it has reshaped the gaming landscape. As of last month, Blizzard Entertainment's massively multiplayer online role-playing game had over 6 million subscribers, making the population of its virtual world larger than many European countries.

The latest evidence of WOW's influence comes in the form of a report from DFC Intelligence. The San Diego-based game-industry research company has just issued a report which says that "subscription revenue from online games was $2 billion in 2005." WOW came out in November 2004 and has been among the top three games in DFC-rival NPD Group's weekly PC-bestseller list since it hit the market.

MOTOGP 06 review FunnyGames, July 3, 2006
If realistic racing games are your thing, the Xbox 360 has one solid choice: Project Gotham Racing 3 game. That is, it's the only solid choice if you're willing to limit yourself to four-wheel racing games. Now, if you're looking for a bit of the two-wheel variety games, you might want to take a look at MotoGP 06, the latest motorcycle racer game from THQ.

In case you're new to the MotoGP franchise games, it's all about super fast bikes, super twisty courses, and super realism. Don't expect to see boost meters or red shells here, as you'll have to make it to the finish line just like the pros do it in real life.

Poker Room Review: Caesar's Palace, Las Vegas FunnyGames, April 10, 2007
Which is the biggest poker room in Las Vegas? Well by square footage the clear answer is Caesar's Palace at over 14,000 square feet. If you simply were to walk into every poker room in the city and count the number of poker tables, again your answer would be Caesar's Palace with over 60 tables. However, there are those purists who would argue that only 30 of those tables are in the main poker room and all the rest are 'tournament' tables.

This inevitably leads to the next question: Does any poker room in Las Vegas have a separate, dedicated tournament room? Answer: Yes! Caesar's Palace.

So take your pick but either way Caesar's is a big room and a big, well run poker room.
