Ubisoft has pushed back Far Cry 3 to the very end of this year. Fans in the U.S. will have to wait until December 4 now for its release (Xbox 360, PS3 and PC), while Europe gets their painted nipple action on November 29. This is quite a far cry from the original September release date. See what I did there? (Dale North)
Scrolls will utilize the same "paid beta" model that Minecraft implemented. The closed alpha is rapidly approaching, which contains multiplayer, singleplayer, and a deck builder. Once that concludes, you can buy the open beta for a reduced price. (Chris Carter)
An exclusive Collector's Edition has been announced, though you can only get it at GameStop. For $79.99, this version will come in an embossed shell case, and inside you'll find all the swimsuit costumes, an art book, a CD soundtrack, and a poster. (Dale North)
As announced today by developer thatgamecompany, Journey Collector's Edition is headed to retail for $29.99 on August 28 in North America. The highlights include full versions of flOw, Flower, and Journey; soundtracks and developer commentaries for all three games; a 30-minute documentary about Journey; and reversible cover art.

Dragon's Dogma has shipped over a million copies worldwide, prompting Capcom to put its faith behind the IP and declare it the beginning of a major franchise. (Jim Sterling)
Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has blamed gamers for their recent dislike of Nintendo's announcements, calling fans "insatiable" (again) and suggesting they have no ability to discern between the amazing and the mediocre. Ouch. (Jim Sterling)
