- On the latest update for the PS3-exclusive Free-To-Play ACE COMBAT INFINITY, four vintage "Piston Fighters" are joining the fray such as the Supermarine Spitfire Messerschmidt Mk.IXe, Bf 109 G-10, A6M5 Zero, and the P-38L Lightning. Piston Fighters may be old, equipped only with machine guns (and other ground-based weapons), slow, and weak, but they are easy to master and easy to fly with. Because of the addition of Piston Fighters, a new aircraft restriction is added on the multiplayer as well as the new Retro Combat Evaluation mission where Piston Fighters are allowed. Also, expect a much harder Alps Air Corridor Mission as well as two new fighter planes added to the lineup such as the Tornado and Ace Combat 6's CFA-44 Nosferatu.

- You may remember that last week, AlDub had their first date on Eat Bulaga. Their first date lasted for a precious minutes until her alarm clock rang and she had to rush back to Lola Nidora to give her "chewables" until a car accident that spiraled most viewers into questioning. Don't worry folks. In the latest #KiligPaMore, Yaya Dub's still alive...with a bandage on her head. Now, viewers are facing a bigger problem. Yaya Dub unexpectedly fainted and if things get even worse, an unexpected voice has heard. A voice that says "Lola". Who could it be? Keep watching Eat Bulaga and find out!

TTFN!!!
