The problem with cult classic games is that the cults often aren't big enough to justify the making of sequels. That's the case with Beyond Good & Evil (2003), which is definitely the greatest game about a green-lipsticked, stealth-heavy heroine and her pig-faced sidekick. Please d…

An Xbox360 that comes with Kinect for $99 sounds good, especially since a low-end mode costs twice that. Microsoft is reportedly sticking that price tag on Xbox 360s, with a huge catch: Suckers who buy it have to sign up for a $15 monthly fee for two years.
