Dead or Alive 5 came to consoles in September 2012, but Team Ninja isn't done with the jiggle physics-powered fighter just yet. Next up for Dead or Alive 5: a PlayStation Vita-exclusive port called Dead or Alive 5 Plus.
Details are few at this point, but Team Ninja's Yosuke Hayashi revealed the title of this Sony portable-exclusive in a YouTube announcement posted on IGN Pro League's channel (via Joystiq). Hayashi also confirmed that an updated version of the console release (via a patch) -- presumably adding the Plus enhancements -- will be coming in 2013 as well.
Warner Interactive recently released a LEGO The Lord of the Rings game, but this stop-motion short film that re-creates the battle of Helm's Deep (via Kotaku) has nothing to do with the TT Games title. Brotherhood Workshop puts a humorous spin on a throwaway line of dialogue from the film adaptation of The Two Towers, and the result is sure to put a smile on your face.

The Collection Writer And Director Interview: Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton On Creating A Horror Sequel
Tucked among the holiday tentpole and Oscar bait movies opening at your local cinema this weekend is Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton’s gory little horror film The Collection. The Collection is a sequel to Dunstan and Melton’s 2009 film The Collector. In the original movie a burglar named Arkin, played by Josh Stewart (The Dark Knight Rises), robs a house that, unbeknownst to him, has been filled with deadly booby traps set by the titular Collector; a masked killer who delights in watching innocent people meet their demise in his traps. In The Collection, Arkin is blackmailed into helping a privately funded group of mercenaries rescue a young girl held hostage by The Collector in an abandoned hotel rigged with all manner of homemade death traps.
This week we had a chance to sit down with Dunstan and Melton (whose credits include writing Feast, Saw 4 – Saw 3D, and Piranha 3DD) and talk about having a sequel stand on its own two feet, navigating audience expectations, and why they chose to shoot a low budget movie on film instead of digital.

Ah, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Still the favorite GTA for many a fan of the series, myself included. There was just something about Tommy Vercetti's journey through the '80 era Miami spin-off that stuck with you. It was also Rockstar's first real crack at wrapping a significant story around one of its open world games, and the first of many subsequent successes. Oh how far we've come.
This trailer for the 10th Anniversary mobile release of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City takes a neon-washed stroll down memory lane. Think on all of the Hollywood star power that Rockstar secured for this one as you watch it. The developer's voice has been honed and fine-tuned in the years since, but there's something that continues to be very special even today about this follow-up to the industry-changing Grand Theft Auto 3.
GTA: Vice City 10th Anniversary Edition comes to iOS and Android mobile devices on December 6, 2012.
Injustice: Gods Among Us is absolutely chock full of DC characters. Today we got a brand new gameplay trailer that reveals legendary assassin Deathstroke.

Check out Deathstroke's Injustice: Gods Among Us gameplay trailer:
I mean, who isn't in Injustice: Gods Among Us? Seriously, who's missing? I'm drawing a blank.
Atari's classic table tennis game Pong is celebrating its 40th (40th!?!) anniversary today (11/29) and Atari is honoring its highly regarded original IP by giving you gifts! Originally released in 1972, Pong was an almost overnight cultural sensation that firmly put videogames on the map. It also raked in money; upright cabinets grossed nearly $40 per day (unheard of at the time). In 1975 Atari's Home Pong console was released and grossed $40 million that holiday season alone. That Xbox 360 or PS3 in your home today owes a lot to Pong's tremendous success in 1972.
To celebrate Pong's 40th anniversary today Atari released Pong World, a free mobile Pong game for iOS, and they're giving away a limited edition Atari 2600-skinned Xbox 360 on their official Facebook page. Click that link, it's pretty sick.
Check out the Pong 40th Anniversary trailer below:

Metro: Last Light's brand new live-action trailer "The Model" introduces us to a former fashion model trying to survive in Moscow's underground metro system.

Models! DUH. Let's check out this Metro: Last Light trailer and see if I'm right:
