After years of waiting, Valve has finally released Meet the Pyro, introducing us to the sugar-coated world of Team Fortress 2's masked flame fan. As you might expect from something fans have been aching for ... it was met with a significant amount of whining from the audience. (Jim Sterling)
Spec Ops is a game that likes to remind the player that every murder is paid in blood or, in the very least, a small loss of identity. As the narrative drives forward, the soldiers of Delta Force start to lose their morality. With no superior to give them orders and no comrades to cheer them on, they are reduced to killing machines walking a long road, hoping for an answer at its ends -- not so much unlike the player.

Puissance Nintendo went hands-on with the new unit, and they had some nice things to say about it. Some key points, nabbed from a translation over at NeoGAF, say that the system has a better viewing angle, better (more natural) 3D, a better grip and hand feel, and a lighter weight than initially expected.

Digital game sales are cool. You know, that fairly basic industry practice that Valve, Sony, and Microsoft have been doing for years? Well it looks like Nintendo is going to join in on the fun, and offer a weekly sale on "select games" on the eShop -- just like they recently had with Mario Land, this is presumably a "one game a week" type of deal.
