The football sim was the only new release from the month of July to crack the top ten, but to be fair, there weren’t very many games released last month. Instead, the top ten is populated by holdovers like Lego Batman 2, The Amazing Spider-Man, and two Call of Duty games (Black Ops and Modern Warfare 3). According to Joystiq, this motley crew could only manage sales of $260.7 million, a 23% drop from July 2011′s take of $338.5 million.
The full top ten is available after the break. (more…)
Well, I woke up this morning thinking it was Saturday, and I was bummed out to discover it was only Friday! But at least the weekend is a few hours closer. I hope to catch up on some sleep and chores! Well, I mean, I’d rather be gaming and writing, but sometimes you need to take out the trash, if you know what I’m saying.
Amazon’s got some solid downloadable PC deals right now – you can get Risen for $5.99, Dead Island for $11.99, or The Darkness II for $12.49.

They’ve also got an extensive sale list, including games like FIFA Soccer 12 ($39.99), Battlefield 3 ($39.99), and Mortal Kombat ($29.99). Scoop ‘em up!

Deep Silver’s Dead Island was one of 2011′s most talked-about games. Some loved it. Some hated it. And some just sat back and muttered, “another zombie game?”
This Summer we’ll get to do it all over again as the publisher has announced a June 26 release for the Dead Island Game of the Year Edition. European gamers will get it as well, but they’ll have to wait until July 6.
Like most GOTY Editions, the Dead Island Game of the Year Edition will include the original game and all of the previously released downloadable content at a budget price. In this case, that DLC includes the “Ryder White” expansion, the “Bloodbath Arena” high score mode, and a weapon blueprint for “The Ripper.”
And if you’d rather skip the game (again) and relive Dead Island’s awesome teaser trailer (again), check it out right here.
…and I feel fine! I mean, I can’t believe tomorrow is December already, but I’m not wigging out as hard as most people are. The crazy Christmas rush is about to begin! I’m glad I do most of my shopping online. I can’t cope with stores anymore!
Amazon has a crazy amount of deals going on, building up to the holiday. Today is the second day of their 19 Days of Deals, and it’s Action Games! They’ve got Dead Island and Deus Ex: Human Revolution for $29.99 ($19.99 on PC), Rage and Resistance 3 for $39.99, and BioShock 2 and Duke Nukem Forever for $9.99. There’s loads more, so check it out!
Boom! After taking the month of August off thanks to the NFL lockout, the debut of Madden NFL 12 has reclaimed its rightful spot at the top of The NPD Groups’s monthly rankings.
The football sim was joined at the top of the charts by other big new releases: Gears of War 3 chainsawed the second spot and Deep Silver’s Dead Island landed at #3 (behold the power of hype, folks). EA Sports claimed the rest of the top five with FIFA Soccer 12 at #4 and NHL 12 a spot below. Resistance 3 at #7 and Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine at #10 round out the bevy of new releases on this NPD list.
Holdovers from previous months include Deus Ex: Human Revolution (#6), Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars (#8) and Call of Duty: Black Ops (#9).
The complete top ten can be found after the break. (more…)
Do you remember Dead Island‘s haunting debut trailer that was released back in February? You know, the one that made you tear up a little bit? I know, I know, there was something in your eye.
Well those three minutes will form the basis of a Dead Island movie now in development at Lionsgate. Sean Daniel (The Wolfman, The Mummy) has signed on as a Producer. He’ll be joined by post-production guru Stefan Sonnenfeld (Transformers: Dark of the Moon, POTC: On Stranger Tides, nearly every other action movie of the last decade).
While the trailer will serve as the primary inspiration for the movie, Lionsgate has promised that Dead Island: The Movie will be” an innovation of the zombie genre because of its focus on human emotion, family ties and non-linear storytelling.” Hopefully that doesn’t include an appearance from Jigsaw.
“This is exactly the type of property we’re looking to adapt at Lionsgate – it’s sophisticated, edgy, and a true elevation of a genre that we know and love,” said Lionsgate’s President, Joe Drake.
The calendar has turned over to September and we know what that means… the stingy Summer of games is over and the Fall release rush is finally here! This week’s new release slate blows away almost everything we’ve received in the last three months. There’s truly something for everybody:
