My first attempt at transcribing music,
There are a few bits which I cut down for the fact it sound boring without a full orchestra and it's emotion (they are just repeating, apart from dynamics). Then, there is a section where I could not complete the rhythmn properly and the final outro I there's something slightely wrong with the rhythmn but I couldn't work out what the real rhythmn was on paper. The expression marks could be better... But if you've listened to the song you shouldn't have trouble working thing's out (as goes for the outro).

WorthPlaying has a quick preview of Wideload's upcoming Hail to the Chimp party game, and despite a couple flubs ("GNN" instead of "GRR" for instance) they did like the game. Story includes a half-dozen screenshots as well.

Ars Technica has a hands-on experience with Wideload's Hail to the Chimp. Apparently, though, they liked the humorous video interludes a bit better than the game itself:

John Olin at Xbox Evolved interviewed Wideload Games' Matt Soell about how he came to Wideload, about Hail to the Chimp, and also about Stubbs the Zombie. Stubbs, it seems, may be getting a sequel:

Last time I felt I had to apologize for mentioning Ron Gilbert's new adventure game, DeathSpank. It's not a Bungie game. It's not a Halo game. Gilbert never worked for Bungie, or worked on Halo. The two have nothing to do with one another, and this site has always been about Bungie or people and things connected to Bungie somehow. In my own twisted way I justified including the item because while completely separate, Gilbert's Monkey Island games stood out to me as special and memorable, as well as the pinnacle of good concept and solid execution in a graphical adventure.

GameDaily Biz has the story of Wideload's first game from its Wideload Shorts division, Cyclomite:

In Wideload Shorts' Cyclomite players pilot a round object called a Cyclomite through meteor storms "in order to save the universe." A multicolored Cyclomite ring in the center of the field is used to catch meteors as they fly toward the center of the storm. The game will also offer two multiplayer modes, hundreds of co-operative multiplayer levels, and a versus multiplayer game.

Those of us steeped in Halo 3 and Bungie Breakaway news might be forgiven momentarily for forgetting that online communities for Bungie's Mac and PC RTS games, Myth, are still hanging in there a decade after the game was released.

Unfortunately one of them, PlayMyth, has now shut down. Server administrator Blades, apparently posting as elusivemind, says he no longer has the time or energy to keep up with it.

...or rather woodchuck love, as a new blogger, the animal kingdom newscaster Woodchuck Chumley has shown up at the Huffington Post with his own blog. Perhaps he'll be answering the age-old question, how much wood would a woodchuck chuck. Or maybe he'll just talk animal kingdom politics:
