Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford has said that Borderlands 2 wouldn't be coming to Wii U, due to an inability to exploit the GamePad in some sort of Earth-shattering way. In contrast, the studio has plenty of ideas for Aliens: Colonial Marines. (Jim Sterling)
Reggie Fils-Aime took to CNN this weekend to deliver a steaming plate of juicy lies. In a talk with Kristie Lu Stout, the beefy boss of Nintendo of America claimed that the Wii U's third-party games looked "dramatically" better than versions found on rival consoles. (Jim Sterling)
More downloadable content will be arriving for Mass Effect 3 this week in the form of a new single-player adventure, Omega. The rapscallion who once called herself the Pirate Queen of Omega, Aria T'loak, aims to return to the station she called home and take it back from the Cerberus forces which have occupied it. (Conrad Zimmerman)
