Gamestop’s Cloud is a No-Go for Consoles

 

GameStopSeems as GameStop has decided not to bring their streaming to next gen consoles. The Cloud service is set to launch next summer.

“Based on consumer feedback, our success in mobile devices, and imminent launch of new consoles, we have decided to move our technology to a PC-based model,” GameStop president Tony Bartel during a conference call with investors today (via Gamasutra). So after a beta they had they plan to deliver their cloud service to PC, tablets and internet capable televisions.

Looks as if the kiddos won’t get their streaming Call of Duty games anytime soon on their console of choice at least for the moment.

 

Castlevania Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate won’t see Daylight till 2013

 

lordshadowds03top_23146.nphdSeems as Konami has delayed Castlevania Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate for the 3DS until 2013. Originally the game was suppose to be a Fall 2012 game, there is no reason as for why the game was bumped off the initial time window.

 

I know my friend Magma will not like this news, but he can settle with the fact that Konami released new screenshots of Alucard and Simon Belmont.

 

 

Catwoman to get Armored Cat Gear for her Wii U debut in Arkham City Armored Edition

 

xlargeWith Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition comes some fancy new battle threads for everyone’s purfect Cat-burglar. Today WB posted an image of Catwoman in her armor technology.

 

 

 

I love the Batman games but will this make me want to get this game again for themedium Wii U? I don’t know. We will have to wait and see. Anyway how do you like the Wii U box art for the game shows Batman in his Armor Tech. Pretty Spiffy huh??

 

 

 

 

Deadpool News from GamesCom

 

Deadpool-Game-TrailerWith Deadpool making it’s way around GamesCom. Seems as if the game with voice-actor Nolan North have been getting positive talks. The game is still in the early stages for High Moon Studios.

The game is being written by Daniel Way and is said to have many aspects of Deadpool’s insanity.

Look for this to go along the lines of X-Men Origins:Wolverine as for M rating which should make for a great game.

 

Ghost Recon Online beta has opened up to the public

 

Ghost-Recon-OnlineThe Ghost Recon Online closed beta is no more. At GamesCon publisher Ubisoft that any and all aspiring soldiers can jump into the beta now.

The Ghost Recon Online beta is available at the game’s website. I have been in the beta for quite a bit and enjoy it immensely. 

 

The game is a free-to-play shooter set in the Ghost Recon universe, You would assume that with an open beta it means the game has released but you can expect the game developing team to continue to polish it.

 

 

Castle Crashers are Crashing their way into Steam

 

Castle-Crashers-PS3The best (IMO) arcade beat-em-up released for this console generation Castle Crashers will finally be coming to Steam. No specifics as to when the game’s release will be  but Behemoth only said “it’s almost here!”.

The Steam version will be playable at Gamescom as well as PAX Prime in two weeks time alongside Xbox Live Arcade’s Battleblock Theater.

The Steam version is said to support gamepads, Steam Cloud and local and online multiplayer.
