That's right, Serious Sam 3: BFE is finally making its way to Xbox Live Arcade, and it's launching in less than a week, no less. The single-player and co-op parts will be available for 1200 Microsoft Points, while the multiplayer modes and Jewel of the Nile expansion will be sold separately as a bundle for the same exact price. This is apparently because they went over the file size limit. Kinda sucks, but that's the way it goes. (Brett Zeidler)
Missing out on ToeJam & Earl back in the '90s was, I've now realized, a huge mistake. As previously rumored, both ToeJam & Earl and its follow-up Panic on Funkotron will be coming to PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade via the Sega Vintage Collection line. (Jordan Devore)
Finally, we have the opportunity to write "Darkstalkers" and "Yoshinori Ono" in the same sentence without having to preface everything with a big rumor warning. Announced today by Capcom at a New York Comic Con 2012 panel, Night Warrios: Darkstalkers Revenge and Darkstalkers 3 will be digitally bundled for release on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.

Borderlands 2 has been out nearly a month now and we've already received some additional content in the form of Gaige the Mechromancer. Gearbox isn't letting the train slow down one bit, as new details have surfaced on the next addition to the game, "Captain Scarlet and the Pirate's Booty," scheduled to release on October 16.

Retailers Buy.com and CDUniverse.com have outed a Rockstar Games Collection which is set to include Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, L.A. Noire, Midnight Club: Los Angeles Complete Edition, and Red Dead Redemption. This collection is set for a November 6 release on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and will run about $60.
More details have come out of New York Comic Con regarding Mass Effect 3's Omega downloadable content that we briefly heard about back when Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk announced their departure from BioWare. In short, it's gonna be a big one. (Jordan Devore)
