First up: a new trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines has been released which shows off the multiplayer component. A season pass has also been priced in the US: $30 will get you $40 worth of DLC. The trailer aims to show off the ‘tactical’ aspects of multiplayer.
The World Of Warcraft movie has got a new director and it is the rather fantastic Duncan Jones. He is the chap behind Moon, one of my favourite films of all time, and the slightly more mainstream Source Code. At this point (even thought he’s probably sick to death of it) I am obliged to mention than Duncan was previously known as Zowie Bowie and is David Bowie’s son.
The Asian PlayStation blog has revealed 18 new ‘minions’ for PlayStation All Stars Battleship Potemkin. The minions are unlockable characters who dance about in the background after reaching Rank 8 with a character. They are:

It’s almost here! You can could almost touch it, if it were not entirely digital and only exist inside computers as a series of electrical pulses. The PS3 Skyrim DLC has passed certification at Sony America and the European versions are being finalised.
Patch Snatch: Bioware have patched the PS3 version of Mass Effect 3 with a wide ranging fix that solves a ginormous, spectacular two problems! Yes! Two! Or TWO if you are EA! TWO problems! One! TWO! Ah ah ahh! I love to count! Ah ah ah!
The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct has had its US release date moved from March 26th to a week earlier, March 19th. This has absolutely nothing to do with BioShock Infinite also being released on March 26th. Nothing.
Everyone loves a good line chart so here is one from Nintendo’s financial briefing which shows sales of the Wii U floundering badly after launch. They also stayed pretty much flat during Christmas week, the time which saw a spike of sales for PS3 and Xbox 360.
What has happened to the Vita version of Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal (a.k.a. Q-Force)? It was meant to be on the PS Store yesterday but never arrived. Gamers pestered Insomniac (who have nothing to do with the Vita version) who are just as annoyed as everyone else. This was spotted on their Facebook page but has since been deleted:
“Insomniac cannot make any comment about the game. We have repeatedly asked Sony and Tin Giant for an update to share with our fans. They have not provided any update we are allowed to share.”
“We are sorry for any disappointment, but there is nothing we’ve authorized to release publicly. Trust us in that we share your frustration, and have been passing your comments on to Sony, we also advise you contact Sony directly to share your disappointment and frustration.”
And Finally, a new trailer for Injustice: Gods Amongst Us. Tata!
