Warner Bros. Goes Blu-Ray Exclusive

Thats right blu people. Warner Brothers has gone blu-ray exclusive. According to Barry Meyer, the Chairman & CEO, this was decided to bring an end to the format war. "The window of opportunity for high-definition DVD could be missed if format confusion continues to linger," he stated.

In the spring of 2008, democracy comes to the animal kingdom in Wideload Games’ politically-charged party video game Hail to the Chimp. Only one animal will rally enough support in the wild to win and become president. If you feel like you are uninformed about this election, it is likely due to the human bias at CNN, MSNBC, and the so called Fox News. With the launch of, you now have a site “by animals for animals” that scares up hard-hitting, probing coverage of the issues YOU care about every day.

Other site features will include a daily blog, video, horoscope, obituaries and regular columns including “This Day in History.”

"News is our territory,” said GRR News team anchor Woodchuck Chumley. “Other news networks are nothing more than the lapdogs of the ruling elite. GRR is the network for the discerning news hound. No matter how chaotic the world gets - and it's going to get pretty wild during the upcoming election - animals everywhere know they can turn to GRR for the truth. Now, with the advent of, you can get your full dose of GRR using cutting-edge 'Internet' technology."
