Starcraft 2, Angry Birds Toons - Shacknews Daily: February 27, 2013

Sarah Kerrigan may no longer be the Queen of Blades and leader of the Zerg in StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm, but the former Terran Ghost sure has a lot of pent up anger she needs to vent in the newest trailer from Blizzard for the game, entitled Vengeance. Then, there are still many assets left unclaimed after THQ's fire sale. The company has announced that it will sell off its remaining IP through a court-supervised auction. Finally, the Angry Birds movie is coming in 2016. But, you won't need to wait three years to sate your appetite for more Angry Birds animated content. Angry Birds Toons is a brand new animated series launching on the weekend of March 16th.

Uncharted 3, Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Shacknews Daily: February 26, 2013

Naughty Dog is making the multiplayer portion of Uncharted 3 free-to-play. You can play up to level 15, at which point you can keep playing without making character progress, or pay to unlock the higher (level 25) cap. Then, Bethesda has officially announced QuakeCon 2013, with the massive bring-you-own-computer event returning to Dallas this year on August 1-4. Perhaps this will be the year when Doom 4 comes out of "Bethesda mode." Finally, Need for Speed: Most Wanted is getting three DLC packs today, packaged together as a "Deluxe Bundle" for $24.99.

Kingdom Hearts HD, Tomb Raider - Shacknews Daily: February 25, 2013

Sony has confirmed that all PlayStation 4 games will be available to download. Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida has said the system will be similar to the Vita, focusing on the digital marketplace with only some of its games available on physical media. Then, Square Enix's Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix will indeed be coming to North America. The convoluted RPG collision of Disney and Final Fantasy's worlds will come to PlayStation 3 this fall. Finally, there are a lot of exciting, cinematic moments and action to experience within the new Tomb Raider, even though they come at the expense of the spirit of exploration and environmental puzzling the IP was originally built upon. Check out our review.

PlayStation 4, The Witness - Shacknews Daily: February 22, 2013

Expect all sorts of games to appear on PS4. Sony's Jack Tretton says that the games will range in price from what you might expect on mobile to standard console pricing. "We're going to welcome free-to-play models, games from 99 cents up to those $60 games," he said. Then, the DualShock 4 bears a lot in common with its predecessors, with a few tweaks like the touch pad and dedicated Share button. And while Sony isn't quite ready to call it the final design, it's close. Finally, The Witness is coming to PlayStation 4 as a timed console exclusive. Given the pedigree of creator Jonathan Blow, you may think that Sony paid out for the exclusivity, but Blows says it was just a matter of the team's resources and preferences.

PlayStation 4, Devil May Cry, BioShock Infinite - Shacknews Daily: February 20, 2013

As we get ready for Sony;s big press conference, first up is DmC: Devil May Cry's "Vergil's Downfall" downloadable content and it is coming March 5, Capcom has announced. The DLC lets you play as Dante's twin brother, Vergil, in his own campaign that includes new weapons, combos, enemies, and locations. It also carries its own story, and judging by the title we're guessing things don't turn out so well for Dante's kin. Next, with the power to open rifts into other realities and even the 1980s, BioShock Infinite co-star Elizabeth is clearly very special and important. Why, just think of the fortunes you could make by popping back to stock up on ironic vintage t-shirts before they were ironic or vintage! A new trailer's dedicated to the so-called Lamb of Columbia, who you're sent to rescue and the floating city's determined to keep locked away. Finally, recent reports suggest that Orbis will contain streaming tech provided by Sony's recently-acquired Gaikai. The cloud-based service will enable playback of PS3 games on Sony's next console--even as they transition to an entirely new chip architecture. It's likely Sony will officially announce their cloud initiative at today's press conference, as Gaikai has just registered numerous domains related to "PlayStation Cloud."

Destiny, Metal Gear Rising - Shacknews Daily: February 19, 2013

Bungie's next game, Destiny, is the epitome of AAA game development: it aims to be nothing less than the biggest world ever created for a video game, while reinventing the FPS. Then, there's few franchises that garner the same kind of respect Metal Gear does. But does Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance live up to the Metal Gear name? Almost, but not quite. Finally, Crysis 3 is beautiful. But get past the pretty graphics, and you'll discover a strong single-player campaign with engrossing gameplay and a decent-enough story.

The pleasing fake 70s/80s documentary series created for BioShock Infinite continues with a second episode. Then, President Obama fielded questions from a tech-savvy crowd, and at one point suggested that video games can help spur on technical innovations by getting kids interested in the subject. Finally, we take a look at January's NPD report.

Tying in to what Nintendo is cheekily referring to as "The Year of Luigi," the company announced a new large-scale piece of downloadable content for New Super Mario Bros U. The "New Super Luigi U" DLC puts Mario's brother in the starring role. Then, Injustice: Gods Among Us is adding yet another character to its roster of superheroes and villains punching and kicking each other: Aquaman. Finally, 2K has confirmed it'll be publishing the WWE series made by Japanese developer Yuke's.

The Last Guardian, Deadpool, Diablo 3 - Shacknews Daily: February 13, 2013

First up today, word on The Last Guardian has been awfully quiet lately, as the latest we've heard has been about technical difficulties way back in June. We may be close to more information, though, as the game's creative director has told eager fans to "keep an eye out" for official release details. Next, Deadpool, coming from Transformers developer High Moon Studios, has narrowed its release window down to a season. The fourth-wall-breaking "Merc with a Mouth" will be coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 sometime this summer. Finally, the risk of permadeath is what makes Diablo 3's Hardcore mode so thrilling, even knowing one single lag spike or server hiccup could spell your doom. Some people, however, have been big babies and refused to accept this, faking account hacks to get their account rolled back and recover their lost characters. No more! With the release of patch 1.0.7, Hardcore characters are excluded from rollbacks.
