I can rebuild it. I have the technology. I have the capability to make the world's first bionic web site. Game Buzz will be that web site. Better than it was before. Better... stronger... faster. Okay, so I don't really know how to make Game Buzz "bionic", but I have already been working to make it better, stronger, and faster.
I am working on two new news systems. Once one of them is complete, new content should be posted more frequently.

Xbox.com is getting pounded like a taiko drum in anticipation of tonight's MTV special, but I was able to discover that the special, "MTV Presents: Next Generation Xbox Revealed", will be running at 9:30pm EST EDT.
I have thus far not been able to discover whether the special will be running simultaneously in all US time zones or whether those of us on Microsoft's coast (also the coast where the special was shot) rather than MTV's will be forced to wait until 9:30pm our time to see the special—well after all of the east coast news sites and television programs have already run their reports. MTV does have a page posted for the special, but the countdown on that page is too long for the eastern time listed there and there is no mention of when the special will be shown in other time zones, so I suspect that MTV's eastern-centric staff did not imagine that someone would visit that page site from a time zone other than their own, making a client-dependent countdown correct only for people in their own time zone.
Update 1 (1:16pm): A Microsoft representative has confirmed that the MTV special will run at 9:30pm in all time zones, so east coast news outlets are going to have a three-hour advantage over those of us on Microsoft's own coast, who will not even see the special until it is old news. Boo hoo.
Update 2 (1:30pm): Wait a minute . . . we are in daylight saving time, so there is no 9:30pm EST tonight! Forget what that MTV page says; their special will be running at 9:30pm EDT, not 9:30pm EST.
