Mass Effect 3‘s next DLC add-on has been teased by BioWare. On the company’s official forums, series designer Jos Hendriks revealed that the next DLC features eight writers, bringing together writers from all of the previous DLC packs”It’s all hands on deck for this one. Pretty much every ME3 DLC writer here in Edmonton is involved (which would include both Patrick Weekes and John Dombrow),” Hendriks said.
The team also includes Mac Walters, who was lead writer from the main Mass Effect 3 story. Later, Mass Effect 3 composer Sam Hulick tweeted that he is also working on new music for the DLC, and that he expects it to be an emotional experience.
“Tossing in piano and muted strings for this one particular piece. High potential for tears,” Hulick said BioWare has not officially announced the next Mass Effect 3 DLC, but hacked files from the previous expansions suggest it will involve or take place on the Citadel. That same hacked file method had previously revealed the names Leviathan and Omega before those expansions were announced.
Ubisoft earlier released a brand new trailer for the exclusive title for Wii U ZombiU. As you can see from this amazing trailer the game is looking to be a chart topper and we cant wait to get our hands on it. Enjoy!
The Wii U will be released just in time for Christmas, according to an Amazon Germany listing which is not surprising since there is always a hype at Christmas time for new technology.
Nintendo‘s new platform will reportedly launch on December 21, costing €399 which is approximately £322/$506. The same date is given for launch titles Zombi U and Rayman Legends, both of which are priced at €69.99 – approximately £56/$88.
The console has previously been rumored for a November release: firstly by Ubisoft at the E3 Gaming Expo, and secondly through a leaked Black Ops 2 listing but only time will tell. Since this has not been confirmed by Nintendo themselves expect this to change any time soon.
Senior vice president of sales and marketing Tony Key discussed how recently-announced technology from Microsoft and Sony could allow the game to be ported to additional platforms after it’s released on Wii U. According to Key, if the title does expand, it wouldn’t be any time soon.
“ZombiU at its core was designed to be a great Wii U game and in order to make that work on other platforms they would have to change a lot of what makes the game cool,” he said. “And I’m not saying that can’t be done, but not in the next six months, you know?”
Since ZombiU was one of the main trailer that literally took my breathe away, we are all hoping this will be the case.
Amazon.co.uk claims that their Wii U price of £199.99 was a mistake and has canceled all pre-orders of Nintendo’s upcoming console. Currently, the online retailer doesn’t accept any Wii U pre-orders.

Mass Effect 3′s upcoming DLC has been detailed. According to a report, the “Earth” pack will ass multiplayer maps set in Earth’s cities as well as new weapons and Human classes, according to Reddit.
The DLC’s is described with “The fighting is fiercest when it’s your home at stake! Mass Effect 3™: Earth adds mods, gear, and new maps for Rio, Vancouver and London,” read the leaked listing. “It features three new weapons: Piranha assault shotgun, Acolyte pistol and Typhoon light machine gun. Six new human N7 classes are also available: Destroyer, Paladin, Demolisher, Slayer, Shadow, and Fury!”
Meanwhile, the previously-announced ‘Extended Cut’ pack has been confirmed to add an “extended epilogue” that elaborates the choices players have made. “An expanded ending for Mass Effect 3. Additional scenes and an extended epilogue reveal the impact of Shepard’s choices on the future of the galaxy.”
During E3 Nintendo announced that Lego City would be coming to Wii U, as well as this there will be Lego City Underground coming to 3D. Taking what we love from previous lego titles and creating a unique feel of its own.

Ubisoft Entertainment has announced that Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth will be coming to Wii U and the Xbox 360 Kinect. Ubisoft registered the domain a few weeks ago leading to speculation that the game was inevitably coming. Avengers: Battle for Earth will be released for both Wii U and Microsoft’s Kinect for Xbox 360. Ubisoft hasn’t gave a confirmed release date as of yet, but they did state that the game is expected to launch after Nintendo debuts the Wii U later this year.
“The idea that we’re making a motion-control version of ‘The Avengers’ is a unique proposition if you compare that to superhero games of the past,” said Tony Key, Ubisoft’s vice president of sales and marketing. “This is the perfect type of game for that because these characters are very action oriented. They’re always fighting and throwing things.”
“Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth” will focus on such characters as Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk and Thor battling an invasion of the genetically altered Skrull alien race. The motion-control action game will feature more than 20 characters from the Marvel universe and would be based on the “Secret Invasion” comic series, not the recent film.
Expect alot more information on this from Ubisoft at E3 this year.
For all you Wii U fans out there, this trailer of Rayman:Legends will definably tickle your taste buds.
A forum member over at Neogaf has spotted an update on Nintendo of Japan’s website which seems to suggest that Nintendo may be naming the Wii U to the Wii Entertainment System. This wouldn’t come as a huge shock as we previously heard from developers that Nintendo was looking to rename the system to avoid confusion from consumers.
