Link roundup

1. The latest Green Lantern trailer is a huge letdown after the last, masterfully-edited footage. I have a sinking feeling that the "Wonder-Con Footage" will be far better than the movie itself.

2. Speaking of, there's a Green Lantern ARG. Via.

3. A former GamesRadar writer:

When I was handed my first game to review, an amusement-park simulator called Thrillville: Off the Rails, an editor told me that if my final score diverged from the Metacritic mean by more than a given amount (I cannot remember if it was 20 or 30), I would have to justify myself to the executive editor.
What writer in his right mind would make more work for himself by writing a review that deviated from the established norm?
