What made our gaming headlines this week? For the past seven days, Gamocracy players have picked the most compelling stories, videos and other gaming related links they came across out there and voted them up. Or not.
Resulting is our collective top 5 Glinks of the week: (what’s a Glink? A Gamocracy Link, if you wish.)

And apparently he did those between calls at the call center he’s working at. Who the hell…?!

Did you hear the new up and coming pop hit? “I made a billion dollars, a billion dollars is what I made, hey hey / Don’t care if you wrote a good story, there’s now way you’ll share it with me, hey hey.” Should be out soon…
3. Black Ops On PC Suffering From Mysterious “Lag” [UPDATE]

I’d say the PC looks slightly better… What’s more, it has a mouse.

Thank you everyone that took part, we appreciate that you’re playing the game!
Well, right now it’s an embryo of a game but we’ve been thinking and designing what the next steps towards making it a full-fledged little game of publishing and curating could be. We might have found something we like.
At the moment, I can tell you that we will rename “pwnz!” into “energy”. “Pwnz!” has a meaning that initially escaped my French awareness, one which I very recently understood, that makes it exactly not the right word for what we’re trying to do. On the other hand, “energy” is… well it’s energy for god’s sake!
