Link roundup

1. "GM has autonomous, electric pods that can be summoned by a smart phone and will whisk you, hands-free, to wherever you want to go. They're almost ready, now we just need to wait for GPS to catch up."

2. Destructoid didn't like Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet:

Sadly, great visuals do not a great game make. Nor does gameplay that spends most of its timing striving only for a passing grade. Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet scores points for its moments of genuine cleverness and tight, logical design, but the majority of the experience is a lukewarm and superficial one. It tries to merge three types of gameplay together, and while the intention is admirable, the effort made is far from total.
3. Mike Maihack is looking for commissions.
