Thanks to Jim for putting this together:

Games Round-Up Hello, my name is Jim Plachy and I blog about video games. Once a week I come to AbsolutePunk Dot Net to roundup a fraction of the weeks video game news so people can comment about it. Or complain about it. Either way, here's a small amount of video game news. Be warned, it was a slow news week. E3 is right around the corner so most companies are waiting until then to unleash their news.

SONY

It looks like the PlayStation Store will be back next week. May 24th to be exact.

Sony has announced a package of free gifts if you're willing to come back to the PlayStation Network.

Is there going to be a God of War PSP collection on PlayStation 3?

Resistance 3's box art is fucking gorgeous.

NINTENDO

The controller for Project Cafe might have a front-facing camera. Ugh, I can't wait for E3 so we can stop this.

MICROSOFT

Microsoft's E3 press conference will once again be shown on SpikeTV.

Here are the details for the Gears of War 3 Limited and Epic editions. Otherwise knows as the wait 2 months to get them half off editions.

A new trailer for Gears of War 3 will be shown during a soccer game.

It looks like the next time we see Alan Wake it will be exclusively on Xbox Live Arcade and it will be called Alan Wake: Night Springs.

Be a student, buy a Windows PC valued at $699 or higher and get a free 4GB Xbox 360.

PC

Arma 3 has been announced for next Summer. If you like punishingly difficult military simulators, well......there you go.

Atari is dumping Cryptic the makers of Champions Online and Star Trek Online.

Hellgate: London, a game I loved to death is set to return with a closed beta sometime between June 3rd and 5th. If I had a PC I would be all over this shit.

iOS

There was a major update to Infinity Blade that added multiplayer, also for not much longer the game is only $2.99.

EVERYTHING ELSE

The Fallout: New Vegas Honest Hearts DLC is buggy. Wow. I can't believe it.

The first full trailer for Modern Warfare 3 will be shown on Monday between the 3rd and 4th quarters of the hoopball game.

Sure sounds like Bungie's next game is called Destiny.

LA Noire's first DLC pack will be out June 21st. It's the Nicholson Electroplating case.

Gotham City Imposters is a Batman game with guns. I'm not kidding.

Here's some footage of the new Silent Hill game.

Looks like there is going to be a new Carmageddon game.

Here's a look at Wake Island for Battlefield 3.

I don't get this at all.

Somebody last week said something about Madden, so I guess here's a Madden thing.

Ubisoft is working on movies.

Here's a new Dead Island trailer. It's sad.

PSAs

Anarchy Reigns was pushed to January 2012

Mass Effect 2: Genesis is out now on Xbox Live Marketplace. It lets Xbox 360 players experience the motion comic that came with the PS3 version of Mass Effect 2.

No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise is out 8/16

Mortal Kombat multiplayer is free to play on PSN until the PlayStation Store comes back online.


RELEASES

Dirt 3

Lego Pirates of the Caribbean

Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale

Naughty Bear: Gold Edition

Dead or Alive: Dimensions

Kung Fu Panda 2

Well, that should do it. Follow me on the Twitters if you wish, but I think that's all the plugging I'm going to do this week. I need to go fit in some more LA Noire.

Same here. It will only be fucking epic.

Also, might get Inifinty Blade for my iPod since it's cheap. Is it any good?

I'm a sucker for a good zombie experience. Be it movie, game or whatever. And Dead Island is no exception. Everything I see about this game makes me want it more.

Be cautiously optimistic. That game has been in development for a long time, by a team that hasn't released anything spectacular.

EDIT: They did Call of Juarez so, I guess it depends on your definition of spectacular.

I reckon PSN has more than made up for the fact that the network was down for a month. Although I'm not that big a user of the network these days anyway. I'm stoked for all the free stuff anyhow :)
