Former politician and consumer advocate Ralph Nader has decided to throw his lot in with the perpetrators of moral panic, writing off videogames as "electronic child molesters." Talk about a socially responsible statement! (Jim Sterling)
Capcom's pretty great 3DS horror spin-off, Resident Evil Revelations, has been confirmed for consoles and computers, following rumors of a potential port job. Slated for release on May 21, Revelations will hit PS3, 360, Wii U, and PC. (Jim Sterling)
If you're a lover of games that require you to put in before you get out, and you recall the glory days of the Eastern RPG, where experience points were the lifeblood and the grind was king, you have literally no decent excuse for not finding a way to play Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch.

Dead Space 3 is going to see a fair few changes, boasting a faster pace, cover-based shooting, and a weapon crafting system. While I'm not a big fan of some of the alterations, the one thing I did find praiseworthy was that latter element -- that is, until Visceral revealed the potential reason why it exists. It's another way to push freemium elements into a non-free game. (Jim Sterling)
