Modern Warfare 2 Not Recalled In Russia After All 94

thief21 writes "After claims that console versions Modern Warfare 2 had been recalled in Russia due to complaints from politicians and the gaming public over the infamous airport slaughter scene, it turns out the stories were completely untrue. Activision never released a console version of the game in Russia." Instead, they simply edited the notorious scene out of the PC version. They did this of their own volition, since Russia doesn't have a formal ratings committee.

There's only one problem when it comes to a debt collector and voice-mail. I've been getting calls on a bogus debt for roughly 6 months, if I don't answer the call and it goes to my voice mail I get a recording that goes a little something like this: "Hello, we are calling in attmpt to collect a debt if you are please stay on the line, if not please hang up." after 3 seconds of silence it continues "by staying on the line you have verified that you are and understand that you have an outstanding debt, please call us at to settle this debt as soon as possible." My problem with this is such, what happens if I don't own that number anymore? On the caller ID the number always comes up Unknown, so I never know who it is calling, and while at work I rarely ever answer my phone.

Second World of Warcraft Expansion Launched, Conquered 386

from the worldwide-caffeine-shortage dept.
The much-anticipated second expansion to World of Warcraft, entitled Wrath of the Lich King, launched on Thursday, introducing a new continent, raising the level cap to 80, and bringing a wealth of new items, spells, dungeons, and monsters to the popular MMO. Crowds gathered and lines formed outside stores around the world leading up to the release. Massively has put together a series of articles for players wishing to familiarize themselves with the expansion, and CVG has a piece discussing the basics as well. It didn't take long for the first person to reach level 80; a French player called "Nymh" reached the level cap on his Warlock only 27 hours after the expansion went live. Not to be outdone, a guild named "TwentyFifthNovember" managed to get at least 25 raiders to 80 and then cleared all of the current expansion raid content less than three days after the launch. Fortunately for them, the next three content patches are each expected to contain new, more difficult raids.

The first version always gets thrown away.
