Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that. It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece. I strongly recommend anyone...
This Portal 2 animation is an awesome way to say "Thanks for existing!"
Never mind that we've been gone a month! The summertime is normally a very slow period in the gaming industry, and the news lately has been no different. Imagine if no murders happened and no burglaries or assaults ever happened.... What would the news be about then?
If you're in the market for a expensiver (yes, I made it up) version of Batman: Arkham City, it seems like you're in luck. British retailer Play.To let slip this image of a Batman: Arkham City Two-Face Steelbook Edition earlier today. No word on whether any of this is real or if in fact this Steelbook Edition only exists in the Matrix (which is totally real). Hopefully Rocksteady will clue us in as we near launch of Arkham City in October.
With fanboys ever unhappy that they can't fly a jet or run people over with a monster truck in the now-current-gen Grand Theft Auto IV, ingenious PC gamers have created a total conversion of the RAGE engine to modify GTA IV's Liberty City into San Andreas. Go download the mod here. We love San Fierro too, but don't forget about your cousin. They have t*****s on the west coast too right?
Got an itch for impostoring (yes another made up word, deal with it)? No? Not interested in Gotham City Impostors, the Batman-themed FPS from WB Games? Really? C'mon, you won't even try it for free? Awww there we go, I must have said the right words. Register for the Gotham City Impostors beta here.
With all the Modern Warfare 3 Madness today, Activision wanted to make sure that portable gamers got a slice of the inexplicable pie. N-Space, previous developers of Activision DS ports, will be bringing Modern Warfare 3 to the Nintendo DS this Fall. Note the lack of an extra D.
We're a small operation here at Game Revolution. We do everything we can to bring you every bit of news possible. Unfortunately, we can't cover everything that happens in a day. We've been using our Twitter account to catch up at a bite-sized pace, but not everyone hears from us on Twitter either! So that's why you're reading The News. Every headline we didn't cover with our witty, fantastic words, wrapped up nicely for your digestion. Everyday we'll continue to deliver the hottest news and tie a nice little bow on everything else for you in the evening.
