I am only four hours late writing this piece. I promise you, it is the Lakers’ fault. They shouldn’t be so damn entertaining to watch. Anyway, today was an interesting day for gaming news. Really, it is just a bunch of news about how much money we are going to be spending on games for the 3DS and on our next iPad, but who cares? This is still fun as hell to read!
We now know all details about the 3DS. The US version of the handheld will launch with 18 games, and the MSRP 3DS games will be $39.99. With Nintendogs + Cats, Steel Diver, and Pilotwings Resort, Nintendo is looking to make some serious bank on launch day. For a complete list of the games, check the source link. The real question is, how much will you be spending on 3DS launch day? $300? $400?
Command and Conquer 4 wasn’t that good. That didn’t stop EA from greenlighting a new game under the cover of darkness. That’s right, C&C will hit store shelves again, this time, coming from a brand new developer, Victory Games. Without EA LA here to destroy the next game, I am optimistic about what they can come up with. Yet, there isn’t going to be a Mirror’s Edge 2. Gratz, EA.
Do you like Super Meat Boy? Are you a masochist? There are more, harder levels available.
All Things Digital got themselves a story today, regarding a rumored iPad 2 event on March 2nd. Why is this news? Well, I think all MacHeads are honor bound to buy every new version of a product they own. You don’t want to be left behind all of the cool kids that will have a newer product than you, do you? All joking (I’m not joking) aside, the iPad 2 will likely be a big improvement over last year’s model. Also, with the recent price announcement of the Xoom, prospective buyers of that may reconsider and go with an iPad 2.

Considering this is a news feature, we don’t normally highlight great editorials or features, however, freelancer Chris Plante had an excellent post that showed up in the latest Escapist Magazine. The story is about his retired grandfather’s appropriate obsession (and skill) with popular card game, Freecell. I beg you take the time to go read it, as it is a well written piece and is genuinely a great read.
