"What finally happened with Bizarre Creations?Basically the studio is stuck in a 3-month period of Activision exploring their options as to what to do with the company. The most likely outcomes are going to be selling Bizarre as-is to someone (rumor millers suggest that Microsoft is very interested), or just shuttering the whole thing and allow the entire team scatter to the wind. The last anyone heard anything reliable, some of the guys from Bizarre said they had a second meeting with Activision which was much more positive than the first one, and that there are apparently a few publishers seriously interested in taking on the company.

All I can really come up with, and I'm not convinced they're great ideas either. I think having a 'Best Loading Screen' would be interesting seeing as we spend quite some time in front of elaborately disguised loading screens. Seeing as movie tie-in games are generally known for being poor it could also be entertaining to try and find one which is actually decent enough to receive an award of 'best'.
