It’s not too far-fetched to assume a related video game is on the way when LEGO announces new licenses. We’ve been graced with two LEGO Batman games representing the DC half of the LEGO Super Heroes line and now it looks like “LEGO Marvel Super Heroes” is finally on the way, for just about every platform.

‘LEGO Marvel Super Heroes’ Confirmed For Fall 2013!.

Pokemon X and Pokemon Y were announced this morning during a Nintendo Direct hosted by none other than Mr. Satoru Iwata himself.

Pokemon X and Y are stated to hit the 3DS this October featuring a whole new batch of Pokemon to discover and capture to become the ultimate trainer!

You may have heard of the popular indie game Slender: The Eight Pages, based on the Slenderman Creepy Pasta stories. It quickly gained popularity last year on account of the fear and loneliness that Slenderman stories are often loaded with, perfectly slipped into video-game form. Slender: The Arrival is a followup project with much higher production value compared to the previous game. It’s also going to cost money, but just watching the trailer reveals why – it contains much more than the previous one. Check out the trailer below, or follow the link below for more information.

Today Sony Patented a new design to stop usage of games on more than one console. The patent itself basically describes a stamp on discs that the console will recognize and reply with data that restricts the disc to that console only.

We heard the same kind of rumors when the supposed “Orbis” was first leaked earlier this year. At the time, I felt that there was no way it would happen. I thought that it would effect too many people too quickly.

Boy, I’m starting to think I’m wrong.

The search for meaning is a natural response to any tragedy, and the latest U.S. mass shooting is eliciting questions about, among other things, the potential role of violent video games. After all, with kids and increasingly teenagers spending so much time hammering away at simulated shooters, is it any wonder when they pick up actual guns? Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod lamented on Twitter, “In NFL post-game: an ad for shoot ‘em up video game. All for curbing weapons of war. But shouldn’t we also quit marketing murder as a game?”

Diablo III PVP Update

Well it looks like the Diablo III PvP has been delayed for a indeterminate amount of time. After 7 months it was definitely feeling like something was up  with it.

Hey everyone,

The development team has been working really hard on the features, content, and systems for PvP in Diablo III and I wanted to take some time to give an update on where were at.

Of course, our goal has been to release our Team Deathmatch mode as soon as possible, but we dont want to put anything out there before its ready. Right now, Team Deathmatch isnt yet where we want it to be, so I want to provide some insight into where we are at in the development process.
