Last Week In Video Games

Heeeeeeey. I remember these things. I apologize for the long break that these weekly posts took. I figure I would take a week off during E3 but then that turned into a few months. Well, summer's over and weekend events are coming to a close. Time to hole up in my house on the weekends and prepare for a brutally cold winter of listening to metal, playing video games and watching movies, TV shows, hockey and football. Which is kind of a good thing because we're just about to get into the video game industry's Christmas season. A ton of high profile games are about to be released and most likely a ton of deals on the horizons. So, lets take a look at what went down last week.

Looking over the news this week I didn't really catch anything that was overly significant. There was a blip about Microsoft trying to make a bigger presence in Japan, but I'm not sure if that has any weight to it. Microsoft has been "trying' to break into the Japanese market since the original Xbox. Other than signing Mistwalker studios and not letting them make any games, I can't think of any other attempts to make Japanese games for Japanese gamers. Maybe I'm wrong on this and in that case you can say "I told you so."
  • Game of Thrones: Genesis, the RTS on PC was released earlier this week. And now there is news of a multi-platform Game of Thrones RPG set for release next year. You'll have control over so many rich imps that you won't know what to do with yourself!
  • Portal 2's thrice delayed DLC pack is set to come out this Tuesday. Keep your fingers crossed.
  • A 248 page art book is to be included with the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Limited Edition. Should be a highly sought after collector's item.
  • So you know those Mortal Kombat webisodes that are actually pretty good? Turns out that the production crew will be making a feature length film after all.
  • Gears of War 3 sold 3 million copies in its first week of sales. That's alright I guess.
  • Did you get your free copy of Legend of Zelda: Four Swords for your 3DS or DSi yet? Well you have until Feb. 2012 to do so.
