Episode 306 of the Destructoid Show:
Max Payne 3 is a game which is instantly recognizable by its gameplay tropes, yet manages to achieve a fresh take on the character and his world without betraying his origins. Packed with fast action, brutal violence, and a striking cinematic style, all of the stops have been pulled out to make this the most exciting entry in the series to date. (Conrad Zimmerman)
Eerie Canal Entertainment is an independent studio based out of Boston that's made up of people from companies you've heard of and probably like a good deal: Irrational Games, Harmonix, and Iron Lore. They have just announced their debut game, Dreadline, and it's described as a Diablo/Freedom Force mashup in which you control a group of monsters who travel to "human calamities" (e.g., The Titanic and Pompeii) to finish off the poor folks since, hell, they're already screwed anyway. The premise seems promising, as does the game's sense of humor. Throw in the aforementioned gameplay style and I think we've got something to look forward to in the first quarter of 2013. (Jordan Devore)
Crystal Dynamics' next Tomb Raider title has been moved from its crowded Fall 2012 slot to "the first quarter of 2013," studio head Darrell Gallagher announced. (Maurice Tan)

@Jeremy_LaMont You're confused - we have a "no 'no swears rule' rule." Otherwise known as an "all swears" rule.
