Steven DeKnight Talks Spartacus Season 3!

Greetings Geeks, We were recently part of a conference call with STARZ Spartacus show runner Steven DeKnight. Steven answered a lot of questions regarding his plans for Season 3 of Spartacus. It's a very lengthy conference call, but it is also VERY informative. I think it goes without saying (but I'll say it anyway) that this is HUGE SPOILER territory. So if you aren't caught up with Vengeance and you don't want to know anything about next season, then just steer clear of this one. Hit the jump for that low down on Spartacus.

Instagram comes to Android

Greetings Geeks! Instagram is now available for Android . So you can now muck up your photos and make them look all "retro". At this point, it's a fully functional port to Android. Though there are a few features that will not be included in the first version of the Android app (Tilt Shift / Blur, Share from Feed, Live Preview and Share to Flickr) But rest assured that they have every intention of bringing those options to you in the near future. As of now, Instagram is supported on any phone running Android 2.2 or above but Android tablets are not invited to the game as of yet. There's a maximum resolution support of 2,048 x 2,048, and the company assures us that the "exact same filters and algorithms are implemented on both [iOS and Android builds], so there is no difference in the output other than the raw image quality that differs between phones."

Porn sponsored Fighting Game Tournaments?

Greetings Geeks, Kotaku posted an interesting article about the adult site, Brazzers. It seems that their Special Events Director, Rob Steele, wants to have Brazzers sponsoring Fighting Game events. Brazzers is interested in sponsoring not only events, but also individual players as well. This is meeting with all kinds of interesting responses, both for and against the idea which is not surprising what with the recent scandal with the FGC and it's alleged sexual harassment. Many gamers seem to be on board with the idea. Some professional event runners however are being very clear about their feelings. Tom Cannon, co-founder of the popular EVO tournament, has already said "To be super clear, there will never be a reference to this particular sponsor at Evo, in any way, shape, or form." So there you have it. Porn sponsored Fighting Game Events and Players? Sound off Geeks! We are dying to know your thoughts. Source: Kotaku
