Rectify Season 1, Episodes 1 & 2
Written by Ray McKinnon
Airs Monday nights at 9pm Et on Sundance
Midway through the second episode of Sundance’s new drama Rectify, Daniel Holden sits down in the outfield of a local baseball field. He takes a drink from a bottle of water, and lies back on the worn grass in shallow center field, looking up at the sun.

Simply put, gaming doesn’t have syndication. »

Capcom is releasing a series of games and packs that will allow you to have a full 8 bit arcade at your fingertips. Today they have shown off the full details of each pack and what the cabinet will entail. Check it out, it's pretty sweet!
The cabinet will include 17 games and 5 packs, but two of the games will be "unlockable" by buying the rest of the games. The games will be "staggered" for release dates starting on February 17 and lasting till "early May." The first game to be released will be Black Tiger. Xbox 360 players will simply get a "demo" with one play token for Black Tiger, while PS3 players will basically be getting the entire game for free.
The 8 bit games are just part of the story though. Another feature is the ability to share with friends. On Xbox you will be able to take screenshots and share them directly to Facebook. »
