Mass Effect 3 Will Be A Wii U Launch Title
Good news! Mass Effect 3 will launch with the Wii U.
Halloween Launch for Assassin's Creed III
Amazon and other retailers plan to release Assassin's Creed III on the 30th of October, which is just in time for some Halloween gaming. Of course, you'll be too buys slashing and slaying red coats to care for such petty things.
BioShock Infinite Delayed
BioShock Infinite won't hit stores until February 2013, says Irrational Games Creative Director Ken Levine. It seems his team uncovered "opportunities" that will allow his team to make a much more intense, interesting and fun experience, so the group had to scrap some previous material to make room for newer, better ideas. Obviously, this kind of work requires a lot of time, so be prepared to wait.
Now Playing: Super Monday Night Combat!
Though we estimated SMNC's launch for April, the lack of updates from the developer made us feel as if they were experiencing a bad case of the delays. Fortunately, that's not the case. Out of nowhere this weekend, SMNC went live on Steam during a beta run, which went sour. The devs promised some gamers access to the beta, but technical complications made a huge mess out of the situation.
Promises were broken to faitful fans, so the devs opened up the game to everybody, and now it's on steam as a free-to-play title for Windows. Also, check out the games category page for the latest and upcoming releases.
Download Now: Max Payne for iOS
Launching slightly earlier than expected, Max Payne for iOS is the original Max Payne game, though Rockstar updated it with touchscreen controls to support Apple's devices. If you'd rather use real buttons, you can buy a dedicated gaming pad to help you battle and dodge the never-ending parade of bullets headed your way.
The game is fun reminder of good times from back in the day, but it can also help you prepare for the twisted storyline of Max Payne 3. Expect a heavy dose of comic-book cut scenes and all sorts of tragedy. Also, an Android release is scheduled for the end of the month.
Unconfirmed Grand Theft Auto V Release Details
These are unconfirmed details, but new information suggests an October launch for Grand Theft Auto V. The rumor comes from a Rockstar employee's cover letter, which points out October as the launch month for the big game.
Of course, there's a couple reasons to be forget about this rumor for the time being. First of all, one of the reasons companies withhold launch dates for as long as possible is that the launch date may change depending on several factors, so this may be one possibility that Rockstar considered at some point in time. For all we know, it has already changed. Second, this could simply be a prank.
Then again, it could be a clever publicity stund by Rockstar.
Diablo III Release Details
Some great news out of Blizzard HQ today! Your non-Diablo-III days are numbered.
Diablo III should hit stores May 15 if things go according to Blizzard's plans. Fortunately, you can pre-order your copy right now from Amazon, so get to it. Stay locked on us as we look out for any delays or an early release.
Konami Delays Silent Hill HD Collection
The new release date is March 20, 2012.
Quantum Conundrum Delayed
Though it was scheduled to ship by March 2012, Square Enix delayed Quantum Conundrum until at least June. That's the earliest possibility, but the company says it'll happen no later than August. Of course, it's playable on your PC, Xbox 360 or PS3.
