Battlefield 4 beta announced, comes with free copy of Medal of Honor: Warfighter
In a twist of shocking news, a NEW Battlefield game has been announced! Not a single person could have predicted that a sequel would be announced to a high-grossing, highly successful video game would be announced so soon, but it has. In a move that baffles no one, EA and Dice have revealed that Battlefield 4 is indeed in development. In fact, to build up hype for the game’s sometime-in-the-future release, a key will be included in pre-orders for the limited edition of Medal of Honor: Warfighter to unlock the beta in Fall. Fall 2013.
Who knows when the actual game will release after then, though with the next gen of games consoles from Microsoft and Sony looming for a potential 2013 release then this could be EA’s way of pulling a Call of Duty 2 and releasing alongside the new devices as the premiere FPS for the generation.
OUYA’s CEO says funding stops with Kickstarter
Amidst some miscommunications over the past week, Julie Uhrman, CEO of OUYA, made it abundantly clear that the team will not be looking for funding after the Kickstarter campaign ends. Stating that she was misquoted, the company has released a statement discussing the matter further, and that essentially the only funding raised afterwards will come directly from our wallets at Best Buy (or wherever we buy the game from).
Video of the Day: Creating DubStep with Kinect
What happens when musicians, tech wizards, dancers, and avid gamers come together? We get the V Motion project, a music video that documents how these individuals created an interactive audio-visual display. Utilizing the Kinect allows the performer to manipulate the music, with the light show reacting to his motions. It’s pretty freaking awe-inspiring.

Kickstart This: Thoughts
With a description like “a 3D platformer set in the mind of the least creative person on the planet” you have to kind of stop and take a peak. Thoughts is a new independently-developed game from Zac that has taken its funding to Kickstarter. The premise? The most wonderful, creative idea in the world needs to escape the dullest man’s mind and let itself be known. It sounds like a mix of art and Mario, with the potential to host a ton of humor.
Asking for $11,000, the team has just 3 weeks left to hit that goal.

Tweet of the Day: Iwata Asks
The parody account of Satoru Iwata, Nintendo’s head honcho, is a riotous feed to follow. The latest tweet not only fits in with the question-asking premise that Iwata is actually known for, but it also kind of eerily sums up Nintendo at E3.
