Thanks to Jim for putting this together.

Games Round-UpPhew! I'm back! Did you guys miss me? You missed me right? I know, how else would you have possibly got your video game news. You must have been lost without me.

Hello, I'm Jim Plachy, I'm from a website called Four Player Co-Op and I stood outside of Best Buy for 2 and a half hours yesterday morning and now I think I'm getting sick. So if this week's roundup reads like it was written by someone who just drank a bunch of NyQuil, that's because it was.

SONY

Wants everything to be in 3D. Joke's on them, everything already is.

NINTENDO

Nintendo hopes that they sold a lot of Wii's and DSi's on Black Friday.

MICROSOFT

It's been a while since we heard about Xbox Live Arcade exclusive Ilomilo, but it's made it's way onto Xbox Live Market place, only in secret. With no fanfare and no announcement you can get a code to download the demo, and then decide whether or not to shell out the 800 MS Points to own the game.

EVERYTHING ELSE

Are you enjoying Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood? Good, because Ubisoft says there is going to be ANOTHER new game in series next year.

The SpikeTV Video Game Awards will be on December 11th, and just like last year it's going to be full of world premiers. Spike has snuck teasers and quick images into their commercials and what we can tell is that they will show off a new Resident Evil game, a new Mass Effect game, and possibly Prototype 2.

EA Sports came clean about the cancellation of NBA Elite '11, saying that the game was just plain horrible.

EA Tiburon is likely working on a new version of NFL Blitz.

Contradicting past statements Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg says that Call of Duty Online Mutliplayer will always be free.

Back in October THQ and Double Fine put out Costume Quest and promised there was another game coming. That game has been revealed, it's called Stacking. You play the smallest Russian Stacking Doll and your size allows you to jump in and out of bigger stacking dolls and use their powers to solve puzzles.

Super Meat Boy got it's first injection of free DLC, The Sewers of Dross. For those not following the Super Meat Boy DLC story, the DLC is free and comes through the game via title updates. It's accessed in the menu under Teh Internets.

Ubisoft launched it's weird laser tag meets the Internet game "Battle Tag" in stores, but only in Canada and Texas. So, good luck.

Axl Rose is suing Activision, because they used Slash in Guitar Hero 3.

Bungie wants you to help beta test their new game.

PSAs

Angry Birds Christmas will be a free update for Angry Birds Halloween. Pretty clever.

The Uncharted Movie is going to be awful, it will star Marky Mark, and Robert DeNiro will play his father, and Joe Peci will play his Uncle. You know, JUST LIKE THE GAMES!

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light got it's free co-op patch on PS3, so get at it PS3 owners!

World of Goo is coming to the iPad.

BioShock Infinite will not be a port on PS3 and it will be released simultaneously on all 3 platforms. Not a surprise, but the more you know I guess.

Test Drive Unlimited 2 will be out February 8th, 2011

RELEASES

Deadliest Catch Sea of Chaos (Xbox 360, PS3)
Nail'd (Xbox 360, PS3)
Epic Mickey (Wii)

Oh man, now I'm all light headed. I should go lay down. You should listen to my podcast. In fact I still need to record this week's episode. Alright, enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving weekend, I mean if you live in America, otherwise, enjoy, whatever day it is in your country. It's probably different, right? I dunno, I don't leave the house.

EA cancelling NBA Elite 11 took some balls. They aren't as evil as people say they are.
