We’re back! On the very first day of our vacation, our darling Badge Fairy Lura came down with an awful sore throat and fever that’s making her cranky and sleepy and generally difficult. Please bear with us as she convalesces.
In other news, while we were gone:
Casual President resigns, EA cuts their Casual Division
President of the EA Casual Division Kathy Vrabeck resigned and shortly thereafter EA announced a reorganization that basically merges the Casual division with the Sims division, as well as merges in their Hasbro partnership. The most interesting thing (for us) about this is that EA is seemingly saying that “casual gamers” don’t exist, that the term “casual gamer” in fact applies to a much more diverse set of gamers, hardcore and non-hardcore alike.
New mini items in the Mini Mall
Pogo has given us another great release of mini items in the Mini Mall, including exotic pets (isn’t that peacock gorgeous?) and Yahtzee items. In addition to some other Autumnal items, there are a few new pieces of clothing to keep your Mini warm as the weather begins to turn to downright chilly in most of the nation.
Pictureka can be added to favorites
You can add Pictureka to your favorites, but you can’t yet download and/or play it. You know where to look for the latest news, of course…right here at BadgeHungry. We wouldn’t keep any secrets from you.
We only posted US answers
You’d think the world was coming to a nuclear end with the amount of email we received about the answers we had (or hadn’t) pre-posted for Trivial Pursuit Daily 20. For the three days we were gone, we got the US answers in advance, but not the UK answers. We decided to post the US answers and list that the UK answers would be posted soon — better half than none at all, right? Well, we received so much email protesting the missing answers we probably can’t respond to all of you, but the UK answers have been back-posted now. You may now remove your foil-lined helmets and come out from your bomb shelters — everything is right with the world (except maybe Badge Fairy’s darned sore throat)!
