Daily Gaming News – 16/01/13

January 16, 2013

It feels like we’re well and truly into the year now, doesn’t it? The gaming industry knows it too, and so a flood of gaming news approaches.


  • NEWS: Things have not been good for Majesco. The publisher of Cooking Mama, has been facing financial strife and Joystiq reports that they closed on the last day of trading at US$0.75/share, down from 29% the day before. The company has thirty days to bring their stock price up to a dollar, or will be delisted from the NASDAQ.
  • NEWS: In a bit more video game drama, Deep Silver, publisher of zombie game Dead Island, has had to apologise for its gory and kinda-sorta-maybe sexist Zombie Bait limited edition. The European and Australian limited edition comes with all the bells and whistles one might expect, but also includes a “gruesome statue of a zombie torso” (with big breasts and a bikini, of course). “We sincerely regret this choice,” said the company via Twitter. “For now, we want to reiterate to the community, fans and industry how deeply sorry we are, and that we are committed to making sure this will never happen again.”
  • NEWS: A bit of sleuthing by folks on the 2K Games forums reveals that we could soon be seeing an expansion for Civilization V. A listing on the Steam Apps database shows something titled “Expansion – One World Content” as an executable file. Whatever it is, chances are we’ll be hearing news soon.
  • NEWS: Itching for Bioshock Infinite yet? If you plan on getting it on PC, rejoice, for you can now check if you machine can run the beast, via the specs released on Irrational Games’ official blog.
  • NEWS: Do you still have a Playstation Portable and did you enjoy the first season of Digimon? Then you’ll love ogling the screenshots that were posted on Siliconera earlier today for Digimon Adventure, an upcoming RPG by none other than Namco Bandai.
