Rumor Roundup: Jason Schwartzman vs. Dinosaurs?! Steam Leaks? More?


When the Internet runs out of news, it starts 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:

  • Were the Dates of the Steam Autumn and Winter Sales Leaked?
    Every night during Jeopardy! there is a commercial telling me that "Wheel of Fortune" is coming up next and to stay tuned. I know "Wheel of Fortune" is on next. What I'm getting at is this: These sales happen every year at exactly the same time and we all know this by now. [Joystiq]

  • Is Nintendo Remastering Classic Games to Sell on the Wii U?
    Because, why work on new properties when you can slap a new coat of paint on something old and let nostalgia earn you some easy dollars? [GameSided]

  • Are There 3 Hidden, Legendary Pokemon in Pokemon X & Y?
    At what point does "Gotta catch 'em all!" turn from a fun goal to a maddening, driving obsession that ruins your life? I choose you, Pikachu (over paying rent and eating)! [SegmentNext]

  • Is "Warlords Of Draenor" the Name of the Next World of Warcraft Expansion?
    Hearthstone, Hellscream, Grom, reforging, transmogrification appearance, Elite Tauren, Dark Below, Titan, Outlands, Kil'Jaeden ... this article was saying words, but I didn't understand many of them. [Nerd Reactor]

  • Is Jason Schwartzman in Jurassic World?
    Sample dialogue: "Maybe I'm spending too much of my time starting up clubs and putting on plays. I should probably be trying harder to kill dinosaurs." "The secret, I don't know ... I guess you've just gotta find something you love to do and then ... do it for the rest of your life. For me, it's fighting dinosaurs." "Maybe we'll meet again someday ... [pauses to flash a peace sign] ... when the dinosaur fighting stops [dies]". Wes Anderson's Dinomore. [FirstShowing]

  • Is the Single-Person Call of Duty: Ghosts Campaign Only 4-1/2 Hours Long?
    Too short? Then be happy that it wasn't set during the Anglo-Zanzibar War, which lasted only 45 minutes. []
