Noire has been delayed due to a mechanical fault with a UPS plane. The plane carried copies for North American customers, many of whom have Tweeted their frustration. (Jim Sterling)
http://www.destructoid.com/sony-s-psn-password-reset-system-has-hackable-exploit-201418.phtml Sony has had to restrict its online services yet again after discovering an exploit in its PSN password reset system, which could let hackers break in and mess with all your accounts again. The exploit lets someone change a PSN password using only an email and a date of birth. (Jim Sterling)
http://www.destructoid.com/hands-on-dead-island-201317.phtmlSuffice it to say, there's been no shortage of hype surrounding Dead Island recently. After sending chills down every red-blooded gamer's spine with their haunting debut trailer, Deep Silver has given themselves a tremendous amount to live up to with this title. Add that to the already massive number of zombie survival shooters out there, and what you get are tough odds for standing out against the crowd. (Tara Long)
http://www.destructoid.com/duke-nukem-web-game-makes-women-get-naked-201413.phtml Duke Nudem (NSFW) is a fairly rubbish shooting gallery game, in which the objective of the game is to hit the target before a lady in order to get her to strip. You "defeat" the woman by getting her to take her bra off. I could suggest that this game is about how nudity is acquired through domination and conquering, hence imply that Gearbox is run by supporters of rape culture. I'll leave that to more sincere people, though, because I'm only saying it to sound absurd. (Jim Sterling)

According to director Todd Howard, they pop up everywhere, and no amount of reptile murder will bring them to extinction. (Jim Sterling)
