We also report on some rumors about the next Batman game, speculate on what Ubisoft's 'Chubby Kings' could be about, and chuckle heartily at the news that BioWare is adding a gay planet to Star Wars: The Old Republic.

BioWare wants to take you to a gay bar. Or rather, a gay planet. Star Wars: The Old Republic is being updated to include a rather inelegant solution to its lack of gay characters -- a planet called Makeb where all the homosexual elements of the galaxy can be found. (Jim Sterling)
While it's evident that this year's E3 is going to something special, the announcements of the new Xbox and PlayStation could just as reasonably occur before the expo this June. In the mean time, there are plenty of rumors going around. As reported by GamesIndustry International, Baird Equity Research has come out of the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show with the belief that these consoles will cost between $350-$400 in the US.

You can argue DmC's merits as a Devil May Cry entry all the live long day. You can bicker over whether or not it deserves the share a name with the series' frankly spotty past. This, however, is not an argument I choose to indulge, because the bottom line is that DmC: Devil May Cry is a beautiful, bold, and supremely enjoyable videogame in its own right. It deserves to be praised. (Jim Sterling)
