This morning was one of those times where Nintendo head Satoru Iwata decided to break some news, hosting not one, but two Nintendo Directs this morning! There was one for Japanese audiences, plus one for the American/European audiences – the only difference being that the English variant had more WiiU related news, plus news on upcoming third party software (such as Lego City Undercover and Need for Speed Most Wanted). But most importantly, Nintendo made a shocking declaration – that 2013 was the Year of Luigi. Forget your stupid bows, everything is green this year. How so? Well, read on!

Earlier this month, we reported on the ever popular Penny Arcade Expo making its debut outside of America and hitting our little island home. While we knew it’d be hitting in 2013, we didn’t know the two other important details: that being where in the country it’d be hitting, let alone when exactly in 2013 it’d be happening. And of course, it’s been kind of a popular debate, with people sorta guessing that it was either Melbourne, Sydney or Brisbane to be host city, with the odd suggestion of something like Adelaide or Tasmania. Well, fret no more as it’s pretty much all but confirmed that not only will PAX Australia be hitting the country in July, but it’ll be hitting the coolest damned city in the country, Melbourne!

Hey folks, remember Dragon Age II? Remember how it was a sequel developed in around 18 months, had sweet nothing to do with the original game and was kinda bad on all fronts? Well, hopefully you’ve all calmed down from that game, because guess what? Bioware’s next project is a new Dragon Age game. An actual proper sequel, not some iOS or Facebook stuff. Titled Dragon Age III: Inquisition, it’s purportedly been in development for the last couple of years, and will be hitting retail shelves in late 2013. Though unfortunately, there isn’t much more than that. Continue reading »
Earth Defense Force is one of those games that shouldn’t be as fun as it is. You shoot a tonne of bugs, enough that it’s not uncommon to see the game constantly chugging to show as many bugs on screen as it does, but it’s a bloody good time and the perfect mindless video game. So it’s quite fantastic to hear that after the disappointing Insect Armageddon, D3 is getting it’s bug stomping boots back on with the announcement of Earth Defense Force 4.
One sorta surprising announcement from last month was for a disc based expansion for Saints Row: The Third, known as “Enter the Dominatrix”, which promised to bring some serious changes to the game and expand it beyond what the DLC added. But surprisingly, we didn’t hear anything from it at E3. It wasn’t shown, or if it was, no-one brought it up in the deluge of post-show updates. However, it seems the reasoning for its no show has been revealed via an interview with THQ president Jason Rubin: it’s not coming out. At least, as an expansion. Instead, it’ll be released in 2013, but it’s being expanded on to the point where it’s being considered a sequel. Not that he named it Saints Row Goes Fourth or anything. Continue reading »
