SimCity looks absolutely beautiful so far and I'm jealous of Dale North for getting to play a crap ton of it. I used to be an avid fan of SimCity all the way from the original up to 4 (I probably spent a lifetime with 2000), but I found myself not digging it nearly as much as past iterations: hopefully SimCity 2013 will change that.

Retro City Rampage. October 9, 2012. PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, PC. You read that correctly. Brian Provinciano's NES-style Grand Theft Auto parody has been cooking for just over a decade, and when it missed its proposed May release earlier this year, it felt like development would continue forever. But with a launch date set for next Tuesday, there's no way RCR will get the bump again... right? (Tony Ponce)
Sony has announced that the paint-em-up puzzler, The Unfinished Swan will be available to download on October 23. If you're subscribed to PlayStation Plus, you snarf it a week earlier on October 16. (Jim Sterling)
I know, I know -- but it's not any more ridiculous than Green Day partnering with Angry Birds. An official tweet from @AngryBirds directed users to a new Tumblr page, which has an animated version of the above teaser. (Jordan Devore)
