We should probably address what time we're planning on doing this one.

Can one of our topics be about buying habits, cause its the topic of the week with LKS and such coming out. We can talk about what makes a game a must buy for you, about bargin bin hunting and going through dumpsters.

And as always, the obligatory GG needs to join us plea. GG if you join us I will buy LKS. Nyaa

(Disclaimer: Smiley with tongue demonstrates that the above was a joke, therefore I am under no obligations to buy anything. Though I will accept donations which I would put toward acquiring LKS.)

Here's what I got for the news. Am I missing something, or do I need to add anything?

New Vegas - In London, Bethesda announced a brand new Fallout game, known as Fallout: New Vegas. It'll be released for the PC, PS3 and 360, and will NOT be developed by Bethesda! So now the PS3 has a chance of being good! In actuality, it's being developed by Obsidian Entertainment, and is kinda fitting - since Obsidian were founded by former members of Black Isle Studios, whom developed the original two Fallout games. Not much else is known, except it's being released next year. Here's hoping that it works out for them.

Brick Rock - Harmonix have officially confirmed the exsistence of Lego Rock Band, a game that was unofficially revealed via Rock Band 2 designer Dan Teasedale's GDC 09 presentation slides. Harmonix will have a hand in the game, being published by Warner Bros Interactive and developed by, WHO ELSE, Travellers Tales and Backbone Entertainment. The game will be hitting the PS3/360/Wii/DS this year. The game will be aiming for a younger audience, and the five songs revealed help to confirm this:

 

Blur's "Song 2", Carl Douglas' "Kung Fu Fighting", Europe's "The Final Countdown", Good Charlotte's "Boys and Girls" and Pink's "So What"

 

Expect a major customization element. No word on whether or not you'll be able to export songs or use songs from RB1/2. Oh, and rock challenges where you take on GIANT FIGHTAN ROBOTS.

 

Wut - Famitsu have unveiled the latest King of Fighters game! And it's not a fighter! Rather, it's...of all things...a SHUMP. Titled, King of Fighters Sky Stage. Not much else is known, except it'll coming out on the XBLA...AND WILL BE FREAKING AWESOME. Oh, and so far, Kyo and Athena are confirmed as playable characters.


Exclusive - Gamers hanging out in Playstation Home (yes, people hang out in Playstation Home) have picked up on an interesting little advertisement for the Playstation 3 version of Batman: Arkham Asylum. To quote the ad: "Play as the Joker in the exclusive Joker challenge maps" - again, for Arkham Aslyum. Big coup for Sony? Also bring up the BUTTHURT Kotaku comments - split between three groups, butthurt 360 fanboys who wanted the DLC on their console, people who hate exclusives, or people who are looking forward to the PS3 version. Oh, and there were also the people who hated Home. Dicks. Bloody Kotaku.

X in your X - Following up on the success of the Bewjewlled add-on for World of Warcraft, Pop-Cap games have released a new add-on for WoW...PEGGLE! That's right, now you can play Peggle in WoW! Wow...

Surprising? - Variety's Cutscene blog is reporting on two unannounced games for Activision. Specifically, two licensed games two be given to two of their more recently accquired studios - High Moon Studios (whom developed the Bourne Conspiracy) and Radical Entertainment (whom are developing Prototype, and worked on Scarface: The World Is Yours, Simpsons Hit & Run, Hulk: Ultimate Destruction. Make Jason take a guess what each studio is working on. Answers are: Transformers for High Moon and Spiderman for Radical.

SHOCKING! - Sony's US Playstation Blog is reporting on a shocking announcment to take place on the 27th of April. They've got a video teasing the announcement, showing off images of Uncharted 2 and inFamous. Possibly be related? What could they be? Co-Op in both games? A demo for Uncharted 2 to be placed in inFamous? What!?

EDIT: It was confirmed to be a multiplayer beta for Uncharted 2, via a Best Buy catalogue.here

Homer you are missing the NPD numbers!

EA bundle Wiimotionplus and the Madden NFL cartoony thing

We could talk about UK console sales or the tie ratio's, but not sure if that would be interesting.

And the niche mainstream thing.

The usual, but not 3am please, 2am fine.

Good topics Homer, where is this Uncharted thing? Earlier in the week we learned it would have online co-op and versus multiplayer, didn't know about the beta.

Saw it, you need to buy Infamous to get into the Uncharted 2 beta. Damn it.
