Not gonna lie, really don't have much of a thread this week because I'm on Day 4 of my liquid diet

NEWS

So Rob Pardo is leaving Blizzard. Either Warlords of Draenor is almost complete or something went horribly wrong considering how closely tied he is with the upcoming expansion pack.

It's no Melty Blood but Aksys announced that they will be releasing French Bread's Under Night In-Birth PS3 port (which comes out in a few weeks in Japan). Like all animu fighters not named Melty Blood, I don't see this taking off but it's nice to see an official release of a game from French Bread in the States. Hopefully we get that instead of a US release of Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax.

Sony: "We're seeing healthy consumer demand for PS Vita globally". Yes, 100K units a month world wide is a blistering demand.

Because two new games weren't enough (Dead Island 2 and the Dead Island MOBA), Deep Silver announced another Dead Island game called Escape Dead Island made by FatShark (War of The Roses, Lead & Gold) and it's coming to last gen systems. Other than the first CG trailer and the Sam B stuff "No Room In Hell" music video and the "Who Do You Voodoo, Bitch", nothing of note was interesting about the first Dead Island.

So including the Early Access sales, Divinity Original Sin has sold over 160K units, Nice to see Larian doing well.

Considering how people were crapping on it in the alpha and beta, it's interesting in seeing SpinTires doing pretty good sales wise.

Man, either someone in the Fox News graphics is a fun troll or Fox News was accidentally ironic by stealing Bioshock Infinite's logo to use it on the border situation.

Didn't know that Slightly Mad was going to release a physical edition of Project CARS but they signed a world wide distribution deal with Bandai-Namco.

Not a news item but iRacing is currently having a deal on subs. Best deals is the 1 and 2 year subs at $50 and $90 respectively.

eSport Stuff

Valve giving a break down on all stuff about The International 4 DOTA2 tourney. The inclusion of newb casting, casters who treat you like you've never played a MOBA game before is actually quite genius.

The uproar de jur this week was IeSF being dunderheaded with banning females to enter the Finland qualifying Hearthstone tourney. There is not enough female pro gamers there is so banning them from tourney is stupid IMO. Thankfully they changed it after the internet sperging.L

NEW RELEASES

MouseCraft (PC, PS3, PS4, Vita) - Well, it's not like Rockstar is making any more Lemmings games so here a game that is "totally" not a Lemmings style game. It "came out" last year as an early access game but this is the "final" release.

One Piece Unlimited World Red (3DS, PS3, Vita, Wii U) - It's a One Piece branded Musou game (Dynasty Warriors) which works well as the attacks from the anime work in a fast paced beat'em up. There is a TON of DLC for the game. If you like the musou games, you should dig this one. Though like all games in the series, I can't say they're worth full price.

Fables: The Wolf Among Us: Episode 5 (PC, PS3, 360) Ten months later and TellTale's Fables game comes to a close. I can't say much about it as I played till through the second episode and said to hell with it till all episodes are complete. At least the first two episodes were way too short imo but it did a good job in translating the comics and it's art to the interactive world. Can't wait to dig through the rest of them.
