Kingdom Hearts Voice Actor Drops A Big Hint

What could be coming up soon for Kingdom Hearts? Jesse McCartney, Roxas voice actor for the English-language side of the series, tweeted a photo of a mic and an image of Roxas on a monitor, pair with the text "recording for the next chapter" (via NeoGAF). Both have been removed, but that only further fuels the speculation.

Joystiq's Mike Schramm suggests that McCartney is recording dialogue for a North American release of Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix, an HD collection that will be coming to PlayStation 3 in Japan on March 14, 2013. The collection packs together three games -- Final Mix, Chain of Memories, and 358/2 Days -- into one package. Nothing's been officially confirmed, but don't be surprised if that changes in the coming weeks/months.





Ubisoft Announces Assassin's Creed 3 Season Pass; “The Tyranny of King Washington

Ubisoft now has a confirmed release date for the first part of Assassin's Creed 3's alternate universe story DLC, The Tyranny of King Washington: February 19, 2013. The full title for episode one (out of three) is actually The Tyranny of King Washington: The Infamy. The DLC is confirmed for release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

The episode opens with Connor Kenway awakening from an upsetting dream only to discover that the United States of America has embraced monarchy rule and crowned a king in George Washington. Connor immediately sets out to bring down the king and his rule, bringing freedom to the young nation. The press release notes that all AC3 DLC will be available for Wii U, but there's no mention of a release date yet for that platform.

Episode one will cost $9.99 / 800 MS Points a la carte, though all three episodes are also included in the Assassin's Creed 3 Season Pass ($29.99 / 2,400 MS Points).

2013 Movie Preview: Thor: The Dark World

Release Date: November 8
Director: Alan Taylor
Rating: Not Yet Rated

Thor returns to battle a powerful enemy who has emerged from a dark realm with a plot to plunge the nine realms, including Earth into a shadowy oblivion. 

What We Know:

It appears that after the ordeal on Earth in The Avengers, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is still unable to rest on his laurels. Having escaped (again) from the custody of Asgard, the mischievous machinations of his half-brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) have reached a stunning new level of inconsiderateness, stirring the malevolent intentions of a race of dark elves in the realm of Svartalfheim, lead by its cruel, megalomaniacal master, Malekith the Accursed (Christopher Eccleston).

A conniving collaboration between Loki and Malekith is in the works designed to help Malekith gain a powerful relic kept in Asgard which the domineering dark elf will use to thrust all nine realms into a darkness more suitable to his aesthetically-unpleasing empire. The cruel conspiracy escalates to a scale too large for even King Odin of Asgard (Anthony Hopkins) to handle. However, the plot also seems to involve a more personally-vengeful aspect designed to destroy Odin's son, Thor. That feat will be accomplished by exploiting the one thing he loves the most: Earth woman, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), luring him into a battle with a brutal, powerful dark elf warrior named Kurse (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) whose mission from Malekith involves bad, bad things for the Asgardian prince.

The fate of the universe hangs in the balance and Thor's reunion with Jane will have to put love-struck sentiment on the back-burner as a grand battle is at hand between the armies of Asgard and the dark elves of Svartalfheim that threatens to shatter their respective mystical lands forever. For our hammer-hurling hero, mitigating this madness could ultimately require that he make what is being officially described as a sacrifice of "everything."

Filling the cast, are returnees, Idris Elba, Kat Dennings, Jaimie Alexander, Ray Stevenson, Stellan Skarsgård, Renee Russo, and Tadanobu Asano. Additionally, Zachary Levi joins the cast, replacing Josh Dallas as "Fandral."

Star Wars VII Has Its Director: J.J. Abrams!

The announcement that Star Wars fans have been waiting for since last fall has finally arrived! Set to direct the first film in the upcoming Star Wars sequel trilogy in 2015 is none other than, J.J. Abrams!

Yes, nerds, it's official. After months of him playing it coy with a yarn about a full schedule, a new emperor has been crowned, and it's not Palaptine. J.J. Abrams is now your official living deity of all things sci-fi. Even Marvel movie mastermind, Joss Whedon must now bow in the presence of the man-maestro behind the current Star Trek franchise, who has become a grand poobah of geekdom by landing the genre's other major monolith.

After Disney's $4.05 billion acquisition of the Star Wars franchise from George Lucas, Lucasfilm head, Kathleen Kennedy has been quietly courting some of the best creative talents (the ones with big-money track records, anyway) and the final candidates seemed to come down to an actor-turned-taskmaster in Argo helmer, Ben Affleck and, of course, Abrams. In the end, what may be the most coveted directorial job ever will be added to the embarrassment of riches (that's a compliment, btw) that is the resume of franchises under Abrams' production company, Bad Robot, which includes Star Trek, Mission Impossible, Fringe, Person of Interest, Revolution, Alias, and the great  "it kind of was Purgatory after all" drama, Lost.

At this point, the news and rumors will, much like The Force itself, start to flow through fans as the long trip of speculation to 2015 gets underway!

Crysis 3 "The Nanosuit" Gameplay Trailer »


Crysis 3 may not hit stores until February 19, 2013, but you'll be able to take it for a test run several weeks early thanks to the launch on January 29 of the game's multiplayer beta. The beta will offer two of the game's eight modes -- Crash Site and Hunter -- and a look at the New York Feed, which EA describes as "a brand new in-game social feed that will showcase the accomplishments of gamers and their friends while offering dynamic challenges to complete."

The beta will run from January 29 through February 12, and it will be available on all platforms that the game is being released for (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC). Electronic Arts and Crytek also released a new Nanosuit trailer that is separate from the beta news, offering an extended look at some of the story-driven campaign's big moments. Check it out up top.

Where do hosts go after their long-running show gets cancelled? Matt Mira, Candace Bailey and Sara Underwood find out after they "accidentally" touch a live wire in the studio. And guess who they meet? No, it's not Office Jesus.

Aliens: Colonial Marines "Kick Ass" Trailer »


I've got two words for you, Aliens fans: power loaders. The latest trailer for Gearbox Software's Aliens: Colonial Marines at last offers official confirmation that power loaders will be a thing that players can take control of. We had previously seen them pop up in game footage under the command of NPCs and it seemed only natural that they'd be usable, but Gearbox had yet to confirm it.

Well consider it confirmed. Just take a peek at the last few seconds of the trailer for your proof. It looks like they come packing a built-in motion tracker that is always visible in your HUD. Neat-o. Beware though: there's a bit of NSFW language here. Aliens: Colonial Marines hits stores on February 13, 2013.

Nintendo Kicks Off 30th Anniversary Promotion With Balloon Fight

Nintendo won't be bringing the Virtual Console to Wii U until later on in 2013, as confirmed yesterday by company boss Satoru Iwata, but a just-launched 30th Anniversary promotion feeds directly into that. Balloon Fight is the first sale offering, with its price knocked down to $0.30 for the next 30 days on the Wii U eShop.

Six other titles are confirmed for each subsequent 30-day period through mid-August: F-Zero (SNES, 2/20-3/21), Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream (NES, 3/20-4/18), Kirby's Adventure (NES, 4/17-5/16), Super Metroid (SNES, 5/15-6/13), Yoshi (NES, 6/12-7/11), and Donkey Kong (7/15-8/13).

These items will be available via the Wii U eShop before the Virtual Console launches this spring, starting right now with Balloon Fight. Those of you with an established library of games on the Wii won't be able to carry that content over to the Wii U, but reduced prices will apply for titles that you own already. NES games will sell for $1, down from the regular-priced $4.99-$5.99 range, and SNES games will sell for $1.50, down from $7.99-$8.99.
