Dead Island: Riptide Rigor Mortis Edition Revealed

When Dead Island: Riptide arrives on April 23, 2013, you'll have the option of showing what kind of fan you are with the newly announced Rigor Mortis Edition. Priced at $79.99, this collector's set adds a bunch of tchotchkes to your purchase, as well as all of the digital content included with the Dead Island: Riptide Special Edition that will be available at launch.

The Rigor Mortis Edition includes a zombie hula girl bobblehead figurine, a bloody zombie arm bottle opener that does double-duty as a magnet, a bungalow key with a logo-branded wooden keychain, and an adorably beaten-up miniature travel suitcase to pack all of that stuff into. This one's for the serious fans; if in-game bonus content is all that you're looking for, the Special Edition release will suit you just fine.




Deadpool

Rejoice, Deadpool fans. The smartass Merc With A Mouth will be joined in his upcoming High Moon Studios-developed, Activision-published Deadpool game by Cable. The tidbit is confirmed by Rob Liefeld, creator of both of those characters, on his personal website.

Cable has a lot of history with Deadpool in the comics, with the two having paired up in a 50-issue series that ran from 2004 to 2008, appropriately titled Cable & Deadpool. The silver-haired, telepathic mutant is the son of X-Men team member Scott Summers and his first wife, Madelyne Pryor, who is actually a clone of X-(wo)Man Jean Grey.

Comics. You've gotta love 'em. Now bring on Headpool already!

2013 Games Preview: Crysis 3

Posted January 10, 2013 - By Adam Rosenberg




2013 Games Preview: Crysis 3Release Date: February 19, 2013

Developer: Crytek

Publisher: Electronic Arts

Platform(s): PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Windows

Once a franchise that was known for straining the capabilities of gaming PCs the world over, Crysis now seems to be settling into a groove that embraces open environments, varied play styles, and jaw-droppingly stunning graphics. All three of those elements have been very much at the forefront of everything we've seen so far from Crytek for Crysis 3.

What We Know:

Crysis 3 picks up in 2047, a full 24 years after the events of Crysis 2. Our Nanosuit-clad hero -- the body of Alcatraz wearing the suit of Prophet -- returns to the ruins of New York City, which is now encased in a massive CELL-controlled Nanodome. The city itself is a disaster zone, completely overrun by vegetation and littered with the remains of the alien Ceph technology. The Nanodome is ostensibly there to protect the city and cleanse it of alien life, but CELL is also using it as a cover to mask an attempted global takeover.

Add one more supported platform to the pile for The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, the Activision-published first-person take on AMC's hit series: a new AMC blog post confirms that a Wii U version of the game is coming. The touchscreen on the Wii U's tablet-like GamePad will be used for inventory management and weapon switching in Survival Instinct, as producer Glenn Gamble revealed in an interview with Digital Spy

All versions of the game -- PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, along with the now-confirmed Wii U release -- will arrive in North America on March 26, 2013. Season three of AMC's series returns from it's mid-season break on February 10, 2013 and it runs for eight more episodes from there, until the finale on March 31.

Survival Instinct focuses on the Dixon brothers, Merle and Daryl. It's worth noting that the back half of season three will likely spend a lot of time exploring the siblings' relationship, so don't be surprised if there end up being connections to draw between season three's revelations and the upcoming game.

Defiance Gameplay Trailer

Defiance, Trion Worlds online open world shooter, is coming to consoles and PC in April and we have the latest gameplay trailer for you “Massive Co-Op” below. The trailer showcases some of the guns, vehicles, and huge boss battles that await you and your friends (and their friends, and their friends) in the ruins of alien ravaged San Francisco. There’s a pretty fantastic moment where someone on an ATV power slides through several enemies that’s worth the price of admission alone.

In case you forgot, Defiance is part of what the suits are calling a “transmedia experience” which will link the game to a SyFy original television series of the same name.

Check it out:

Pretty cool right? I think I need to see a little bit more of the game before I'm 100% sold but I’m definitely interested to see how the game and the TV show sync up. Are you?

MLB 2K13 Confirmed For March 2013 Release

2K Sports has reached an agreement with Major League Baseball, the MLB Players Association, and MLB Advanced Media (the league's Internet overseers) that will see MLB 2K13 released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on March 5, 2013. Tampa Bay Rays pitcher David Price, a recent winner of the American League's Cy Young Award, is confirmed as the cover athlete.

The news comes as a bit of a surprise since 2K's MLB license expired at the end of 2012 and that March release date is less than three months from now, but it's pretty likely that Visual Concepts was working on the game long before the license renewal was finalized. MLB 2K13 also brings back 2K's Perfect Game Challenge, a $1 million competition that sees players competing to pitch a perfect game.

With the release so close you can probably expect 2K Sports to spin up the preview machine on this puppy in the near future, so stay tuned for more details.

Dust 514

Starting tomorrow, January 10, 2013, Dust 514 officially becomes a part of the EVE Online single-shard MMORPG universe, according to an announcement on the official EVE website. CCP Games' PlayStation 3-exclusive free-to-play FPS launched in 2012 as a grand-scale multiplayer shooter with some ambitious ideas for the future.

In practical terms, Dust players are classified as "mercernaries" who can belong to any EVE corporation (you can also create your own), with each multiplayer match amounting to an assignment whose results ripple into the EVE Online universe. It's complicated and it's something that has never been done before, but the potential here is huge. Give the announcement post on the EVE Online website a read for more details.





2013 Games Preview: Aliens: Colonial MarinesRelease Date: February 12, 2013

Developer: Gearbox Software

Publisher: Sega

Platform(s): PlayStation 3, Wii U, Xbox 360, Windows

In space, no one can hear you scream. In Aliens: Colonial Marines, all of your co-op friends can hear it, and they'll laugh at you mercilessly for being such a wuss. Unless they're screaming too, of course. That's what Gearbox Software is shooting for in this Sega-published adventure that has 20th Century Fox's series canon seal of approval.

What We Know:

The story in Aliens: Colonial Marines is framed as a direct sequel to James Cameron's 1986 film Aliens, though it also occurs after the events of Alien 3 as well. The U.S.S. Sulaco has been discovered in orbit around LV-426 and players assume the role of Corporal Christopher Winter, a Colonial Marine who is a member of the search and rescue crew sent to investigate the unresponsive vessel.

Injustice: Gods Among Us Adds Bane, Lex Luthor

The roster of fighters in Netherrealm Studios' upcoming Injustice: Gods Among Us is now 15 strong, with the latest issue of @Gamer confirming the existence of villains Bane and Lex Luthor in the game.  Netherrealm's own Ed Boon -- also co-creator of Mortal Kombat -- tweeted an image from the mag's latest issue that offers a look at the two characters.

Bane is pretty much what a DC Comics fan would expect: a hulking brute connected to an assortment of hoses with his face covered by a mask resembling that of a Lucha Libre fighter. Lex Luthor may be a puny human, but he wears a hefty battlesuit that, if it's anything like what he's worn in the comics, increases his strength and gives him the power of flight.

You'll be able to pit DC's greatest heroes and villains against one another later this year when Injustice: Gods Among Us hits stores later this year.

Black Ops 2 Revolution Map Pack Details Slip Out

Activision still hasn't officially confirmed the rumored Revolution map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, but a now-removed Amazon listing makes the already likely content drop seem even more certain. It started with an alleged accidental posting of a DLC trailer of the Call of Duty mobile website, as reported by MP1st. Now there's this Amazon listing (via OXM UK) that runs through each piece of content in the pack.

The contents of the Amazon listing as OXM reports it line up precisely with the details revealed in allegedly leaked promo art that first tipped fans off to the fact that DLC was coming. You can continue to take all of this non-confirmation for what it's worth, but it certainl seems to be increasingly clear that the first Black Ops 2 is happening later this month.

Hit the jump for a rundown of the four multiplayer maps, one Zombies map, and added weapon as described by the removed Amazon listing.

The Walking Dead Screenshot Shambles Forth From Telltale Games

Telltale Games saw huge success in 2012 with the release of The Walking Dead as an episodic series, with the game now at more than 8.5 million individual episodes sold since launch. Company CEO Dan Connors shared the data point with the Wall Street Journal in a recent interview, adding that roughly a quarter of those sales are for iOS versions of the game.

The company's biggest sales months for the game were in November and December of last year, thanks largely to the game's first season coming to an end, the end-of-year award accolades, and the conclusion of the first half of the AMC TV series' third season. There's unfortunately no additional word on Telltale's second season plans beyond Connors' brief mention that it is indeed the plan.

Give it up once again for Telltale Games and The Walking Dead. And for those who haven't gotten around to playing it yet: seriously, what are you people thinking? Get on that!

 Fuse

When looking at Insomniac Games’ portfolio, Fuse almost feels like the most natural thing for the studio to come up with in 2013. Announced first as Overstrike at E3 2011, the game’s original feel was as if Insomniac were bringing its shooter experience to the third person with the slick, cartoony tone of Ratchet and Clank along with that series’ emphasis on gadgetry. Since a name change to Fuse, its been given more grit and a serious edge, familiar territory for the creator of the Resistance series.

The key ingredient that Insomniac is counting on is the substance that gives the game its title. An alien substance originally discovered by the U.S. government in the 1940’s, ‘fuse’ has been kept hidden from the public ever since. It seems to be some kind of all-purpose juice that powers up your characters and weapons, making for guns that can create black holes or turn targets into mercury. With a rogue organization named Raven having stolen its source, it’s up to you and your squad of operatives to retrieve it and clean up any messes this rather unstable substance might have made on the loose.
