Kristin Kreuk to star in Beauty and the Beast

The CW has announced that Kristin Kreuk (Smallville‘s Lana Lang) will star in their Beauty and the Beast pilot. The show is a reboot of the 1980’s Beauty and the Beast TV series starring Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman. I know the show’s probably going to be set in Seattle, New York, or some other non-descript state, but it would be awesome to have it set Vancouver. Can you imagine having a Beast around to clean up the Downtown Eastside?

Penny Arcade’s 2012 ESRB Campaign

Penny Arcade has teamed up once again with ESRB to create a series of print and online ads informing parents about game rating systems. The caricatures in the ads are based on real parents and their kids, and they highlight new features like the ESRB ratings summaries and the ESRB mobile app.

According to the ads page, the last time Penny Arcade worked with the ESRB was 2006. So much has changed since then. Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube have practically become fixtures, and almost everyone with young children these days have grown up with video games. It makes you wonder if this moral panic over video games has passed.
