Nintendo is back in a big way this week with Pikmin 3. The latest game in one of Shigeru Miyamoto’s favorite franchises is in stores today and is sure to please Wii U owners who have been waiting for a big new title since Lego City Undercover‘s release this Spring. The PS3 is also back in a big way this week after a slow Summer. Namco Bandai’s action RPG, Tales of Xillia, and Atlus’ artful beat ‘em up, Dragon’s Crown (available on the PS3 and Vita), will be available in stores on Tuesday.
What else is available this week? Well…
A game adaptation of Disney’s Cars spinoff, Planes, touches down on all Nintendo platforms (3DS, DS, Wii, and Wii U) this week. And EA has put out another Sims 3 expansion, The Sims 3: Dragon Valley. Finally, a boxed version of Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition for the PC is available this week, alongside Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers, a budget dogfighter for the PS3 and PC.

Hmm. Maybe this week’s downloadable slate will offer up something interesting…

Well, yesterday was a wonderful day! I got to play three board games I’d never played before last night – Race for the Galaxy, Blood Bowl Team Manager, and Heap. They were all pretty fun! I had a blast. My lovely boyfriend is taking me out to dinner sometime this week to celebrate our anniversary as well. I don’t mind celebrations that last a week long, for sure!
What’s up with deals today? Well, just one, and it’s really for those of you who have been waiting on a deal with the PlayStation Vita. It’s not a price drop on the Vita, but it’s enticing. It’s at Amazon, and it’s a deal to buy a PS Vita, get Mortal Kombat and a 4GB memory card free. Not too shabby! Though a price drop would be pretty nice…
Two t-shirts today, one that’s just ok and one I want to buy immediately! (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. Best Buy is having some sales on games as well – you can get Dirt 3 for 50% off (if you’re a Reward Zone member, that is). 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!
Just one gaming t-shirt today: (more…)

Sony has updated the PlayStation Store with another batch of big releases today including the Vita version of Mortal Kombat.
Mortal Kombat is the only game newly released for Sony’s handheld this week, but it’s not the only brawler. PSN players will be able to download Romino’s Awesomenauts if they’re looking for another 2D fighting fix. Also available this week for the PSN is an adventure game, Doc Clock: The Toasted Sandwich of Time.
A pair of full-sized PS3 games, a pair of PS2 Classics, and a single PSone Classic have also been added to the PlayStation Store this week.
They say opposites attract, and that’s definitely the case with the two PS3 titles, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Disney Universe. For old school RPG fans, The Legend of Dragoon is a game that’s gone, but has never been forgotten. It’s your PSone Classic this week. And finally, the original Max Payne and Rayman 2: Revolution make the PS2 Classics corner the place to be this week.
More details on all of these games can be found after the break, while a full list of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
Possibly the weakest month of new video games ever comes to a close and the new games we can look forward on May 1 isn’t much more impressive.
However, that’s not to say there’s nothing new this week. For example, if you’re a fan of the best fighting game of last year… and your Vita needs a new game… look no further than Mortal Kombat on the PS Vita.
Or perhaps you’re looking for a new PC game. There’s the MMORPG Tera and the Quake III-like team FPS shooting of Nexuiz.
And don’t worry, there’s one new console game as well. players will be able to get a bead on their targets in Sniper Elite V2 for the Xbox 360 and PS3.
And that’s it. If there’s something for you, great. If not, there’s just two more weeks until we’re all blown away by the new releases of May 15.
Gimme a W! Gimme a B! What’s that spell!?!… You know, that kind of thing doesn’t work when what you’re trying to spell is just initials.
Anyway, Lollipop Chainsaw and its gory school bus full of gore and guts will be making a stop at this weekend’s PAX East expo. The game, which is scheduled for a June 12 release on the PS3 and Xbox 360, will be available in playable form to fulfill all your fantasies of cheerleaders, chainsaws, and doing the splits to decapitate a zombie.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will also be showcasing playable versions of Mortal Kombat for the portable PlayStation Vita, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings for the Xbox 360, The Lord of the Rings Online, and Dungeons & Dragon Online: Menace of the Underdark in booth #424.
