The Terminal Reality-developed The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct has gotten itself a full trailer, showing off all the minty fresh gameplay you can expect from this TV series spin-off. Yeah ... let's just say that comparing it to TellTale's effort isn't exactly fair. (Jim Sterling)
BioShock Infinite is still a few months off, so 2K Games has decided to make a quick buck in the interim with BioShock: Ultimate Rapture Edition. Slated for January 14, the package bundles both BioShock and BioShock 2, along with downloadable content. (Jim Sterling)
After a sizable wait, Retro City Rampage has made its Xbox Live Arcade debut. While this will be neither the first nor last version of the game, it is nice to know that it costs 800 Microsoft Points ($10) instead of launching at the previously announced price point of 1200 MS Points. (Jordan Devore)
Despite the game being a few years old at this point, people are still going back to experience Demon's Souls thanks to a growing interest in Dark Souls and its direct sequel. As such, it will be a particularly welcome addition to PlayStation Network when it arrives on January 8, 2013 for the reasonable price of $19.99. (Jordan Devore)
Were you starting to get worried that Fez wouldn't appear on platforms other than Xbox Live Arcade? Despite knowing that Polytron is a small operation, I was. In a reflective post by Phil Fish which teases what might be next for his studio, the designer drops the news that, yes, the game "will finally be ported to other platforms." (Jordan Devore)
We're only a few days into 2013, but Sony's already vying for the Asshole of the Year award in a competitive fashion. It's been discovered that the company has patented a method of "tagging" games played on multiple systems, with the purpose of trying to control secondhand sales. (Jim Sterling)
Nintendo's obsession with tying game purchases to hardware may have bitten it in the keister, with word that secondhand Wii U systems are able to redownload software purchased by the previous owner. Oh Nintendo, you so Nintendo! (Jim Sterling)
