Friday News Recap: 5/12 – 5/18

The Last of Us Trailer is Awesome and Demands Your Attention

This game is shooting to the top of my most anticipated. Thanks Naughty Dog!

Tomb Raider Catches the Delay Bug

Since all of the cool kids are doing it, the highly anticipated Tomb Raider isn’t going to make it to the 2012 party. Instead it will come out in early 2013. If it makes the game better, I’m all for it. I just can’t say that I’m surprised that this happened.

Capcom Wakes Up a Little Bit and Acknowledges On-Disc DLC

We all know this business practice is utter horse crap, so it is nice that Capcom is finally seeing that. Senior vice president of Capcom Christian Svensson went vocal on the forums saying our opinions on this topic are being heard and they are “reevaluating” how they tackle the matter. I’ve always been quick to talk mess about Capcom, but if they actually pull through here, I’m sure I’d have a higher opinion of them.

Darksiders II Hitting August 14, 2012

A little bit off from its original June 26th date, THQ has confirmed the title will actually hit in August. This would have been a perfect mid-summer game, but it looks to be a great game no matter when it comes out. I can’t wait for Death (the horseman, that is)!

Borderlands 2 Box Art is Double the Suicide

He has nothing else to live for apparently.

Unreal Engine 4 Looks… Unreal

During GDC Epic showed the new version of their popular new engine behind doors. This week, they’ve let us in on a little bit of the secret of what it sure to be a big engine in the next generation. For the love of everything that is holy, this looks phenomenal. I’m not gonna break down the individual specs, but in layman’s terms, holy shit, it looks good. We will be seeing more of this powerful engine this June.

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time Also Coming to the Vita

In addition to releasing on the PS3 at an unspecified time this fall, the same game will also be released on the Vita. Saves will be compatible, meaning you can take your game on the go and then put it back on your PS3, depending on where you want to continue. The games will also share the same trophy list. This seems like a neat feature and something Sony always tried to push with the Vita. Let’s hope more games have cross compatibility.

Let me know if you have any thoughts!
