    Gran Turismo’s creator, Kazunori Yamauchi, was making noises in an interview to the effect that the sim racing series might be coming to the PC.

    I’d like to think I’m pretty easygoing most of the time but when it comes to Tetris, something inside me goes haywire about trying to make sure all the blocks fit together perfectly.
