THQ wants you to know about cheer-tastic videogame All Star Cheer Squad.

The Nintendo Ds and Wii game follows a year in the life of a cheerleader. Players learn new cheers, practice and create their own cheertines to make the squad and eventually become capcheer. High-energy gameplay includes squad competitions and one-on-one cheer-offs, where players will use the Wii Cheermote and Nuncheer to perform dozens of real-world cheer and dance moves.

Have you ever ridden a city bus and looked at the driver and thought: “He must be the happiest guy on earth?” Us either, but if you said “yes,” you’re going to be excited: Meridian4 has announced the imminent release of Bus Driver, a bus driving-simulator that will allow eager players the excitement of driving a realistic bus, keeping a timetable, and picking up and placating passengers, all while obeying traffic laws. Sounds fun!

Here’s the official details:

  • 12 buses to drive – detailed models inspired by real-world buses, including London’s double-decker bus, America’s school bus, Europe’s low floor buses.

Fearing a security threat, the government has asked that Google remove Street View images that are taken too close to military bases. The pictures from google were taken on public streets, meaning anyone could take the pictures, but Google listened to the Pentagon anyway.

Gen. Gene Renuart, head of the military command responsible for homeland defense, said, “It actually shows where all the guards are. It shows how the barriers go up and down. It shows how to get in and out of buildings. I think that poses a real security risk for our military installations.”

The first Sega Genesis branded games on the Wii virtual console will be Puyo Puyo 2, a puzzler and Powerball, a combination of rugby and football into a new, hybrid sport.

They’ll hit this month. Prices start at 800 Wii Points.

Some of you may have been confused about a key issue in the iPhone SDK. You may have seen the iPhone SDK intro video that Apple released last night, in which Scott Forstall demoed syncing an application to your iPhone through the 30-pin iPhone dock connector. This allows you to do live debugs on your code, while using the application on it’s native hardware. Well, if Apple didn’t make it clear in their video, or on their website, you must pay the $99 (standard) or $299 (enterprise) in order to transfer an application to an iPhone for testing. You use the certificate to sign your code. You can find information about the developer certificates on Apple’s DevCenter (login required). You can still use the iPhone simulator, but running it on the hardware is part of the fun.

Programmer Michael Nygard is used to travel. He’s got the process down, from airport to hotel. Unfortunately, the TSA isn’t as prepared.

While passing through airport security recently, he was pulled aside and made to sit in the holding area. He watched as a gaggle of TSA workers examined his things, especially his laptop …

“‘There’s no drive,’ one says. ‘And no ports on the back. It has a couple of lines where the drive should be,’ she continues….”

Man pages have been around nearly as long as UNIX itself. The people who will take an interest in this post are most likely familiar with the ‘man’ documentation format for most UNIX commands. While little has changed in the form and function of the man page – besides spawning some offshoots like GNU’s info – the options for reading them in a more pleasant GUI environment have grown more diverse. Mac OS X users have a few options beyond typing ‘man xyz’ into the Terminal or using man pages on the web

Spider-Man and Catwoman, Superman and Batman are just a few of the cartoon heroes that will face off in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s “Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy” exhibition to run from May through September.

The show, developed by the Met’s Costume Institute, will focus on cartoon icons including Wonder Woman and The Flash and the fashions they have inspired to explore issues of identity, sexuality and nationalism, said Curator in Charge Harold Koda, who presented the exhibition at a Milan theater on Feb. 20.

A few weeks ago, Electronic Arts sat me down with an early build of the company’s upcoming Boom Blox for the Nintendo (NTDOY) Wii. Produced by EA’s Casual Entertainment Label, the much-ballyhooed game, which is due to hit store shelves in May, is the first in a trilogy of collaborations with Hollywood demigod Steven Spielberg.
