now offers presales of A Valley Without Wind 2
, the upcoming platformer sequel. Those who purchase the game prior to its release in February will get immediate access to the beta version, and will also receive a free copy of the original A Valley Without Wind. If this all doesn't provide enough incentive, the game is currently on sale for 60% off the regular price.
German site GBase.ch
has word from I-FRIQIYA that February is when to expect the release of the PC edition of Fuel Overdose
, the oddly named tactical/action/racing game. They also have word that the game is now available for the PlayStation 3, but that due to some sort of glitch, you have to actively search to find it. They cap the news off with a recently released trailer
showing off the game. Continue here to read the full story
plans for demo versions of Dead Space 3
, the upcoming horror-themed shooter sequel. This will be released on Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network on January 22nd, though Xbox 360 owners have the chance to get to play it a week earlier if they sign up on this page
. Apparently PC owners interested in a demo can have a lump of coal. Bah humbug!
The Irrational Games Website
shows off the image that won the voting
to be the alternate cover for BioShock Infinite
, the upcoming shooter sequel.
NYTimes.com - Game Theory- Making Room for the Women.
Unfortunately this rise in so-called casual play has upset some of those who see themselves as guardians of the true flame. There’s been a definite backlash against the idea that women are entering the hallowed citadel, dropping in a few scatter cushions and ending all the fun. Particular ire is reserved for anyone who dares to point out that female characters in games are often unsupported in the bra region for no apparent reason; given boring, bland supporting roles; and totally absent.
Happy Boxing Day, Kwanzaa, Second Day of Christmas, Wren Day, Bulgarian Father's Day, St. Stephen's Day, and more. That's right, today is practically an entre holiday season unto itself. MrsBlue and I had a lovely Christmas, actually venturing out to spend the evening with some friends, who cooked up a lovely dinner. Here's hoping things were equally pleasant for you. That may be tough in some areas of the country, as apparently there are some really severe winter storms out there, so here's also hoping you stay safe. I guess we'll know how bad this is soon enough, because apparently the whole mess is heading our way.
Undeterred by the holidays, GfK Chart-Track
presents its list of the 20 bestselling full-price PC entertainment titles in the U.K. for the week ending December 22. The chart is quite stable, with Football Manager 2013
once again playing star atop the tree. The all formats chart
is also pretty static, with Call of Duty: Black Ops II
retaining the top spot, but Just Dance 4
did take a huge jump to number four after languishing at number 37 last week.
Merry Christmas to all who are celebrating. Here's to peace on earth and goodwill toward men, and everyone else. We had snow overnight here, making for the classic white Christmas, and even better, it was just enough to stick and be scenic before whatever was on the sidewalk melted on its own with no need for shoveling. Thanks Santa!
