Rumor Roundup: Adele as a Bond Girl? Half Life 3? More?

By , dealnews Media Editor

When the Internet runs out of news, they start making things up. We think this is funny, so we round up all the lies and speculation and put them here. We call it the "Rumor Roundup" and we do it all for you! This week:

  • Will Adel Sing the New Bond Film's Theme Song?
    This rumor was created in a lab as a way to relieve the pressure that had been building for "journalists" to write something Adele-related that they could headline "Rumor Has It..." A sign of relief can be heard if you put your ear really close to the Internet. [BBC America]

  • Xbox Will Get Music Streaming and Cloud-Matching Service?
    "We took the best parts of Spotify, and the best part of iTunes, shook it up, and came out with something that is better than either, but will be called a rip-off service by everyone on the Internet."— I dunno, a Microsoft exec, I guess? [LiveSide]

  • Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine Are Married in Resident Evil 6?
    Finally did the ole "'Til death do you part", eh guys? Well ... considering the game content, probably more like, "'til death, then resurrection as a zombie, then bullet in the brain-box do they part," but you get what I'm saying. [Latinos Post]

  • "Half Life 3" Will Be an Open-World Game?
    So, more like Grand Theft City 17? (Press "X" to have Dr. Freeman carjack a dune buggy.) [Digital Trends]

Jeff Somogyi is the dealnews Media Editor. He used to complain about how long it's taking Valve to release "Half Life 3," then he realized that he's not done much in the last five years, either. See more of his Combine-approved thoughts on Google+, Twitter or on his blog.
