Devils Third Rights Return to Valhalla Game Studios

Remember Devils Third? It was supposed to be THQ’s big collaboration with the newly formed Valhalla Game Studios (headed up by former Team Ninja lead Tomonobu Itagaki). It’s been ages since we’ve seen ANYTHING on the game, but that could mostly be put on THQ effectively parting ways with Valhalla, thanks to their financial woes.

[Updated] Nintendo Announce 3DS XL

Hard to think just a matter of weeks ago was E3, wherein Nintendo pretty much shafted the 3DS in terms of news & announcements in lieu of the Wii U. Understandable, but kinda surprising that we didn’t hear too much, save for a vague announcement of “there’s going to be a seperate event later”. That

Microsoft says No Thanks to Motorola's settlement offer.

The patent violating court case between Microsoft and the Google-owned Motorola took another step up with Microsoft dismissing the settlement where Motorola “offered to pay Microsoft 33 cents for each Android phone using ActiveSync, which updates calendars automatically, and asked for a royalty of 2.25 per cent on each Xbox and 50 cents per copy

Saints Row: Enter The Dominatrix Now A Sequel; Hits in 2013

R18+ Bill Passes Through Parliament

The R18+ legislation made an important step earlier tonight, passing through the Senate unamended. This all but assures an R18+ rating will be available for video games when it comes in to effect on January 1, 2013. “These are important reforms over 10 years in the making,” said Jason Clare, Minister for Home Affairs, “The

Rumor: XBOX 720 Discussion Paper Leaked

Straight from NeoGaf and The Verge is a 56 page document, which is rumored to have all the goodies of the Microsoft master plan for the code named XBOX 720 console. However being the MS fan boy that I am, I would have to say, not much in this document surprises me, other than it’s age.  Most of what is
