Thanks to the new team for putting this together:

Games Round-Up
NEWS

- The world's top Xbox LIVE Gamerscore has just passed 600,000 points.

- The PS Vita, as well as doing your homework and filing your taxes, can also be used as a PS3 controller. Is there anything this thing can't do?

- You know how awesome Catherine is? So does Mega64. This is hilarious, as is everything Mega64 does.

- MineCon 2011 details were released. Don't forget to pack a pickaxe.

- Brink: Agents of Change is free for two weeks. Yeah. Free. Download it.

- Artificial Fiction is giving away 2 Humble Indie Bundle Steam keys. Again. Free. Who doesn't like free?

NINTENDO

- In 'Sorry for Accidentally Rhyming' news, Modern Warfare 3 will be released on the Wii.

- Satoru Iwata, in a strange turn fo events, has publicly apologized for the 3DS' price cut.

- One of my favorite levels of all time, City Escape, has been announced for Sonic Generations. A bittersweet feeling, really. Also, in ground breaking new developments from Sonic Team, old Sonic fans are 'hard to please.'

MICROSOFT

- Dragon Age 2's new DLC, Legacy, is more or less the company showing that it 'listens to feedback and complaints.'

- A patch for Mortal Kombat's online play will be released August 9th.

- Check out this boss looking new game from Bethesda, the first person action game Dishonored.

SONY

- Band Hero developer Activision is being sued by Adam Levine for using his likeness for their game without his permission. Attention rockstars: READ THE FINE PRINT.

- Twisted Metal, originally with an October 4th release date, has been pushed back to 'next year.'

- Check out the Skyrim pre order bundle. It's pretty swee-HOLY SH*T IT'S A F*CKING DRAGON.

- BloodRayne: Betrayal, which looks fucking awesome, has been delayed on PSN until October 3rd.

- New Batman outfits as DLC for Arkham City. Check out the Batman Beyond threads.

- Did you get Catherine yet? Because it sold 200,000 copies in its first week.


RELEASES
(Kind of a slow week...):

Fruit Ninja Kinect - (XBLA)
Spy Kids: All the Time in the World - (DS)
The Mysterious Case of Dr. Jekell and Mr. Hyde - (DS)
Puzzler World 2 - (DS)

Poor Sonic Team... Haven't really played any of their recent games, but Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2 are two of my favorite platformers of all time.

I'm so out of touch with modern technology. I miss my old Dreamcast.
