Man, do I love me some Dead or Alive. And Dead or Alive 5? From what I've played, it seems like it's shaping up to be something truly special. One of my personal favorite modes from DoAs of past has to be the tag team mode. Really, I love any fighting game that has it. (Brett Ziedler)
Polytron has announced that they won't be fixing the first Fez patch, and instead are re-releasing it as is despite the save file issue associated with it. The reason? Phil Fish states on the Polytron blog that it would cost "tens of thousands of dollars to re-certify the game." (Hamza Aziz)
Blizzard co-founder Mike Morhaime recently published a statement regarding Diablo III, addressing a number of concerns that have cropped up since launch. Interestingly, he acknowledged criticism surrounding its "always-online" requirement, and copped to the fact that it acts as a form of DRM. (Jim Sterling)
Fortnite, Epic Games' Unreal 4 zombie game, is looking pretty cool and seems designed to take full advantage of what PC gaming has to offer. Unfortunately, it may take advantage of some not-so-welcome PC features, such as the ability to impose always-online DRM requirements. (Jim Sterling)
