Steamship Ahoy - Star Ruler 2

Steam News announces the release of Star Ruler 2, as Blind Mind Studios is bringing the 4Xy back:

Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin Pricing & Specs

VG247 has details on how owners of Dark Souls II will be able to upgrade to the upcoming Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin that repackages From Software's action/RPG with DirectX 11 support among other improvements. As was suspected when this was announced, this will not be a free upgrade, though the information they have on upgrade pricing is confusing, as they say this will cost owners of Dark Souls II $29.99 to upgrade, while those who own the game and all it's DLC will be charged $19.99, which seems to be the exact opposite of how this should work, and they have reached out to Bandai Namco for clarification. They also offer specs for the upgrade:

CPU: Intel Core i3 2100 3.1GHz / AMD A8 3870 3.6GHz

Out of the Blue

Spectre Teaser Trailer Shows Daniel Craig's James Bond More Brooding and Badass Than Ever—Watch (thanks Neutronbeam). The prospect of the Blofeld saga being properly executed is thrilling, and if Christoph Waltz is actually playing him, I am so sold (no offense to Donald Pleasence, Telly Savalas, Charles Gray, or those mysterious cat-petting hands). Do not stand between me and the theater on November 6th if you value your safety.

Play: Frozen Islands.
Red Shape Alert.
Death Valley.
Story: Walking Dead Spin-Off Title Sucks; Here Are 43 Better Options. From a blog called "the Unbitten."

This is the best 44 seconds of video you'll watch today.
