No news is not good news. Lots of news is good news. And boy do we have good news for you.


  • NEWS: They might cop flack every now and then, but EA does have a few things to be proud of, such as their recent announcement of being the very first gaming company to score 100% by the Human Rights Campaign. Due to changes made to medical benefits, stance on the Defence of Marriage Act, and involvement in LGBT events, the company was also awarded the distinction of “Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality“. Well done EA!
  • NEWS: Eurogamer has several official screenshots of Bethesda’s Dragonborn expansion for Skyrim. Play “Spot the Morrowind“.

  • NEWS: Speaking with Gamasutra, Deus Ex: Human Revolution art director Jonathan Jacques-Belletete has spoken out against the industry’s love for greys, browns, and…more grey. Claiming the industry needs to go to “aesthetic rehab“, he expresses concerns over what he perceives as an outdated “visual culture”, one solved by having designers communicate with and draw inspiration from other places, such as fashion designers and architects.
  • NEWS: Ubisoft has today announced that a demo for the delayed Rayman Legends, now scheduled for 2013, will be available on the Nintendo Wii U’s eShop at launch. At least, for the United States this weekend. Fingers crossed us PAL gamers get similar treatment.

  • NEWS: Nintendo? In my Apple? It’s more likely than you think. GameIndustry.biz is reporting that Nintendo has launched its first official paid app for Apple’s iOS devices in Japan. The Pokedex-like encyclopaedia is priced at ¥170, with add-on packs containing new creatures marked for ¥500.
