Last Week in Video Games

I apologize that I am a day late, but I have a fairly good excuse. This weekend was Thanksgiving here in Canada, so it was filled with food, family and watching sports. Not a lot of time to get to my PC and do anything really. So here's a Thanksgiving edition of what happened last week in video games.

For a while now, pretty much everything coming out of the Nintendo camp is how awesome the 3DS is and why you should go out and buy one. You know, cause now you can hold a Red DS that will burn your eyes out. Anyway, I was delighted to see a little bit of gossip regarding the Wii U recently. Word has it that EA loves it and will be bringing some of their key franchises to the new console. Specifics weren't given of course, and really it shouldn't come as much of a surprise. EA is kind of known for porting games across multiple platforms, so it would be uncharacteristic for them to turn their back on Nintendo's latest console. Oh well, sometimes stating the obvious is all that's needed in the gaming industry. This just in: Mario will have a new power in his new 3DS game! WHY HAVEN'T YOU BOUGHT ONE YET?!

Other than nothing really new from Nintendo, the rest of the gaming world is still just counting down the days til they can start counting all of their Christmas money. Hopefully I'll have something awesome for you next week. But for now, check out these tidbits.
  • A lot of sources are reporting that the writer's behind Toy Story will be writing a Farmville script. Hopefully this is one of those scripts that never sees the light of day.
  • The Raving Rabbids from the Rayman universe will have their own TV series on Nick Toons soon. Not too sure how that's going to work out.
  • A sequal for Transformers: War For Cybertron (titled Fall of Cybertron) was announced. No dates hinted for its release though.
  • Screenshots? Check out Battlefield 3, Super Mario 3D Land, and Of Orcs and Men.
