Lady Gaga donates $1.5 million to Zynga for Japan disaster relief

Being enormous fame monsters ourselves, we really appreciate it when others like us -- say, Lady Gaga -- use their monstrous fame for good. Which is exactly why we were so glad to see Ms. Gaga's massive $1.5 million contribution to Zynga's continued Japan relief efforts, half of which joined...

Square Enix outlines support for Japan disaster relief

Being a big gaming site, we can kinda lose sight of what's going on outside of the gaming world. The situation in Japan right now is terrible, and rather than use the disaster to its advantage for some kind of publicity stunt or whatever, Square Enix is just flat-out donating money. The Square...
