This new trailer is meant to prepare you for Visceral Games' Dead Space 3, which hits stores on February 5, 2013. There's still plenty of time to work your way through the series' first two games, but this "story so far" video does all the work for you. Spoilers ahead?

It's not as spoiler-y as you might think, revealing only the main beats of the previous releases. You'll still want to avoid the trailer if Dead Space/Dead Space 2 are on deck for the coming weeks, but even knowledgeable fans can appreciate this video refresher on Markers, Unitology, and other bits of lore from the Dead Space universe.

Grand Theft Auto 5 Screens Reveal Submarines And Blimps

Rockstar Games couldn't give gamers the gift of Grand Theft Auto 5 for the 2012 holiday season, but the studio does the next best thing in giving the gift of new Grand Theft Auto 5 screens. A batch of five new images are posted on the Rockstar Newswire, hinting at several new elements in the game.

As you can see above, the underwater play in the waters around Los Santos will at some point include a submarine. There's no way to know at the moment if you can drive the thing, but I'm going to bet on yes. There are more screens after the jump too, including one that stars a swimming shark and another which shows off some of the game's aircraft. If you look carefully, you'll see a blimp in the background.

Please let us pilot a blimp, Rockstar.

BioShock Infinite's Reversible Cover Selected

The fans have spoken and the reversible cover image for BioShock Infinite has been chosen. Irrational Games has the result posted on its website, though you can also see the winning image above. This Songbird image nabbed itself 38 percent of the total votes, the most out of the six options offered.

The official cover art for BioShock Infinite wasn't terribly well-received among fans due to its somewhat generic feel. Irrational creative director Ken Levine admitted that he was ready for the backlash, explaining that the cover is meant to sell BioShock to mainstream audiences. The fan vote for reversible cover art is meant to give hardened gamers an alternative to the official art.

Do you suffer from a compulsive need to hold on to loot? Even when it's completely worthless, perhaps unsanitary and definitely rendering you wildly overencumbered? Then maybe the story of Davokhiin can help. Sure he might be the hero of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, but he's also got a real problem letting things go.

Sleeping Dogs

Here are five contenders that you could have easily missed as the year unfolded...

You saw the news of Battlefield 3's End Game DLC, due for a March 2013 release, earlier this week. Now you can take a first look at the fifth and final DLC release for Battlefield 3, compliments of a newly released trailer (via All Games Beta).

The minute-long montage focuses almost entirely on the content pack's new vehicle, the dirt bike. The ride allows for a driver and a single passenger, with the latter able to fire at whatever's ahead. The brief teaser also suggests that End Game's maps will be well-suited to this new vehicle, with proper roads, makeshift jumps, and tight corridors that couldn't accomodate larger vehicles.

Mad Max Sequel: First Look At Tom Hardy

A photo has surfaced from next year's Mad Max: Fury Road, giving us our first look at star, Tom Hardy as the film's titular "Road Warrior."

The image came from a set of autographed low-res set snapshots sent to Ain't It Cool News. Initial doubts surrounding them were quickly quelled when Warner Bros officially confirmed their authenticity.

Now, we can certifiably see Tom Hardy as he dumps his Bane respirator to take over Mel Gibson's star-making role of "Mad" Max Rockatansky. For the uninitiated, Max was an Australian federal police officer serving the remnants of a post-apocalyptic society until a vicious gang killed his wife and infant son. After his vengeance was satisfied, he became a roaming warrior of justice in a savage future.

Check out the full pic below, as well as a look at one of the post-apocalyptic vehicles from the film.

The Lost Treasures Of Infocom Comes To iOS

The news earlier this week that Infocom founders Dave Lebling and Marc Blanc will be handed a Pioneer Award at the 2013 D.I.C.E. Summit got people wondering about where all of those classic text adventures have gone. Apparently, rights owner Activision has had mobile developer Code Mystics working on an enhanced iOS port of The Lost Treasures of Infocom, and now the collection is officially live in the App Store.

The free download includes Zork 1: The Great Underground Empire at no additional cost, though five-game packs can be purchased at $2.99 a pop. You can also pony up $9.99 for the full 26-title collection, including the never-published Zork: The Undiscovered Underground. The enhanced port offers some useful tools, including a tap-based on-screen compass and the ability to create shortcuts.

More importantly, the enhanced port includes interactive re-creations of each game's "feelies," which were physical items packed into Infocom games that usually carried hints as well as vital copy protection tools. All in all, it's a nice and clean interface. Compliments to Code Mystics on this solid port.

The Walking Dead Showrunner Glen Mazzara Steps Down

AMC has announced the not-so-shocking news that The Walking Dead, its hugely-successful zombie apocalypse drama has been renewed for a fourth season. However, it appears that for the second time in the (after)life of the hit series, the ship will require a new captain. 

Executive producer and showrunner, Glen Mazzara will be making what is referred to as an "amicable" split from the show after creative disagreements with the network over its direction. However, Mazzara will remain on board during the post-production phase for season 3's second half (which returns February 10) before leaving the "survival of the fittest" world full of rovers, walkers, and dictatorial smooth talkers.

Could this be seen as an opportunity for fresh perspectives? Or will the move leave the show handcuffed on a roof full of walkers after the late T-Dog dropped the keys?

Check out the official joint announcement from Mazzara and AMC below.

Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable Dated For January 2013

The coming year will officially be kicking off in style, with PlayStation Vita owners in the United States getting a January 8, 2013 treat in the form of Earth Defence Force 2017 Portable. The enhanced port of the Xbox 360 game from 2006 was released in Japan in September 2012, and it's great to see that a localized version was turned around so quickly. Hopefully that'll make for some unintentionally HILARIOUS on-screen text.

When it comes to action games involving big guns fired at bigger alien insects and robots, there's no better example than EDF. It's an interactive guilty pleasure that you don't have to feel guilty about. Why? BECAUSE IT'S STARSHIP TROOPERS: THE GAME. The Vita port adds a few bonuses including series favorite flyer Pale Wing, new enemies, an assortment of new weapons (the list is 230 strong), and online multiplayer for four players in co-op and adversarial modes.

The word that you're looking for is: YES!




Gary Schyman, the man behind the music of BioShock and BioShock 2, is returning once again to work with Ken Levine and the Irrational Games team on scoring BioShock Infinite. The news is confirmed in an official announcement from Levine that came at the start of his appearance for yesterday's Reddit AMA session.

“His score is very different from the first two games, yet very much guided by the same aesthetic principles," Levine said of Schyman's current work. "We were lucky to have him and I can't wait until you get to hear some of his stuff. He's working in a different, sparer style, but it's awesome.”

You can hear some of that style right now in a newly released excerpt from BioShock Infinite's soundtrack, the full version of which is a packed-in exclusive included with the Premium and Ultimate Songbird versions of the game.
