'Better Off Ted' airs last two episodes

Monday, 14 June 2010 12:30 PM Written by

ABC's schedule still shows TBA for 8 p.m. Thursday but my DVR says otherwise: It says the last two unaired episodes of the late, great "Better Off Ted" will be burned off there.Got the question answered by ABC: If there's no Game 7, the show will air. If there is a Game 7, they'll be bumped to another time that's yet to be determined.

Marc Berman at The Programming Insider reports that ABC will also air the final two episodes of "The Forgotten" on July 3 from 9-11 p.m. That listing does show up on ABC's schedule.

The Xbox 360 has received a makeover.  Today at Microsoft's expo, the company announced that there will be a redesigned 360 with more memory, more USB ports, an optical audio port, and built-in WiFi.  The best part is, it ships today!  

The new console, which does not have an official name, will be $300.  The existing 360 hard drive will not be compatible with the new system.  

Microsoft's motion capture camera, recently dubbed "Kinect," will be able to directly connect to the new console.  If you have an original 360, then you will need to buy an adapter to play "Kinect."  

Here's a link to pictures on cnet.com of the new 360 in all of its beauty.

Guitar Hero and Rock Band have been duking it out for music-game supremacy, but now a new music/rhythm game is about to throw its hat into the ring.  It's called Power Gig: Rise of the 6 String and it comes with a highly advanced 6 string guitar that doubles as a controller.  If guitar isn't your thing, Power Gig also features a new drum peripheral that monitors the drum motions by motion sensors.  Say goodbye to bulky drum peripherals.  

Check back for my hands-on experience of Power Gig later this week.  Here is the recently released gameplay trailer

If anyone has been paying attention, you'll know how much BlueNotes loves his great old blues. So I've got a brand new (last week) CD that I'm going to move to the top of pile, because it's exactly that -- great old Chicago blues played by some of the old masters.

It's a joyful union of Willie "Pinetop" Perkins and Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, on "Joined at the Hip" (Telarc Records), a spirited session of Chcicago and Delta blues from two of the men who had an awful lot to do with its success.

Microsoft has officially announced the name of their much-anticipated motion caption camera and the name is "Kinect." USA Today is reporting that the camera,  which has been known as "Project Natal,"officially has a new name on the eve of their press announcement.  The camera eliminates the need for a controller, and rather monitors your motions to control the game.

So far we only know of a name and a handful of release titles that were also announced.  The games are:

Kinectimals: Puts you in a virtual petting zoo with a plethora of animals

Joyride:  A virtual car ride

Kinect Sports: Think Wii Sports, but with no Wiimote

Kinect Adventure: So far all we know is river rafting about this one.

Dance Central: Dance party on the 360.

 

Stay tuned for more details as they are announced.
