You know what we love? Women. You know what else we love? Horror movies. On our very first "List" show, we chat about our favorite women in horror movies, and what makes them so special. Our decisions are not up for debate. These are the final answers. You have no choice. What we say is law. At least until we do another list, and change our minds completely. Then that's the new law.

This Sunday marks the premiere of AMC’s The Walking Dead television show. Based on the comic property created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard, the show is bringing zombies to the small screen in a way that’s never been done before. After watching the first two episodes, it’s clear both longtime fans of the comic, and virgin viewers will have a new “must watch” TV show.

I'm usually cautious at anything marketed as a "gaming" anything. To me this is often an excuse to paint something cheap with flashy colors and unleash it on an assumed unknowing "gamer" market. Maybe some gamers fall for that stuff. Personally, I don't know any who do. Most are just put off by it.

But Sennheiser's new gaming headsets aren't the typical stuff marketed at us. Instead, they're well designed and built headphones that have an integrated microphone. They're also big, fairly light, and comfortable. As in, all the things you want for long hours of raiding.

Nintendo Releasing Super Mario All-Stars for Wii

A quarter century ago, a small Japanese trading card manufacturer released a video game that brought two Italian plumbers to the world of Bowser, Koopas and decoy castles. That's right, this year marks the 25th anniversary of the release of the original Super Mario Bros., and to help celebrate, Nintendo has announced that on December 12th, it will release Super Mario All-Stars Limited Edition for the Wii. This is the same bundle of games recently announced for Japan and Europe.

Killzone 3 Special Edition Revealed

You know, I'm really glad that limited edition bundles for video games have taken off. I love being able to show off my affection for a particular title by having a really nice statue or night vision goggles on my entertainment center. Now, while I do enjoy the Killzone series, I don't like it enough to spend $129.99 on this really nice Helghast Edition. Getting an exclusive action figure and art book is all well and good, but what really makes this package phenomenal is the Helghast helmet replica. Having been burned by the exhorbitant price of the Halo 3 Legendary Edition before, I think I'll be waiting this one out a bit longer. There's bound to be some left over when summer comes around, and the price will drop just like it does on everything of this nature. Of course, for fans of the series, this is undoubtedly a day one purchase, and clearly is the version to get. Paraphanalia like the helmet really compliment a collection, and would like fantastic next to a Master Chief helmet and Gears of War Lancer, or an Assassin's Creed Ezio statue.

Sony's also announced the pre-order bonuses at various retailers, but curiously, all of them are only good for the first 24 hours after you've activated them. I haven't seen anything like this before, and it actually seems kind of worthless. I get that people are going to be playing the multiplayer like crazy that first day, but putting a time limit on a pre-order just seems insulting. I'd rather have early access to a specific weapon than double experience for a brief amount of time. I won't even be awake for a good chunk of those 24 hours, so it really seems like a big waste.

Check out the detailed list of what's going to be made available below.

Goldeneye 007 Reboot Tank Gameplay Trailer

We're just a few short weeks away from the long-awaited re-release of Goldeneye 007. Activision is hoping that the mixture of nostalgia for a classic shooter, combined with some modern tweaks and enhancements, including a completely different actor playing James Bond, will bring both fans of the franchise as well as new players to the store shelves. Today the publisher has released a brand new trailer for the Wii-exclusive, this one highlighting one of the better aspects of the original game's single player campaign: the tank. For those of you who don't remember, in the original game, James had to commandeer a tank in a timed mission to chase General Ourumov through the streets of St. Petersburg. Although the reload speed on the tank in the Goldeneye was rather slow, those shells did pack one hell of a punch; and from the looks of things in the new trailer, that punch has returned.

Confirming a rumor some may have seen coming, Sony has just announced that the 320GB  PlayStation 3 console, which previously was only available as a bundle with Move, the PS Eye, and Sports Champions, has shipped to stores today as a standalone item. The 320GB hard drive currently stands as the king of current gen console storage capacity, and the new sku will sell for $349.99. That means that for just $50 more than the new-ish 160GB PS3, you can have double the storage capacity.

EA has fired the first shot in the Great 2010 FPS War, having delivered Medal of Honor to store shelves over a month before the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops.

The new additions, entitled "Hot Zone" and "Clean Sweep", will add new multiplayer game modes.

The 16th iteration of the "Guide to Greener Electronics" has been released by the Canadian NGO Greenpeace, and once again Nintendo has found itself dead last among the rated companies. This is the third straight year that Nintendo has been in this position, and the 11th time in the report's history. The company earned a score of 1.8 out of 10, which is the same score they earned in the 15th version. Microsoft didn't fare much better, managing a 2.9, while Sony seems to be making some improvements, scoring a 5.1, up from 4.9.

Microsoft Not Planning HD Remakes

Sony has made a lot of gamers happy with their strategy of releasing their last-generation titles on the PS3 with updated HD graphics.  The God of War Collection was a big hit, and Sly Cooper and Ico/Shadow of the Colossus promise to be just as successful.  Microsoft’s previous generation offerings aren’t quite as robust as Sony’s, but there’s definitely some good stuff out there that’s in need of an HD remake.  Logic dictates that, eventually, Microsoft should take the same approach to their library of older games.  Unfortunately, they apparently have no plans to do so.

Super hero MMORPG Champions Online hasn’t done the kind of business that Cryptic expected it to.  Despite its incredibly deep character creation suite, players have complained about the game’s grind-heavy structure, repetitive gameplay, and overall lack of depth, and as a result, subscription rates have never approached Cryptic’s expectations.  So what does a publisher do when their MMO is struggling to attract players?  Make it free to play, of course.
