All you need to know about the 3DS
I think this week was perhaps the best week ‘evar’ for our copy editor Sriram, as Nintendo unleashed a torrent of information regarding the 3DS, touching on topics like price, availability and launch line-up.

Portal goes Cross-Platform

Gaming News Round Up - 22/01/2011
Is the cake a lie or not?

It’s no secret that Valve wasn’t the biggest fan of the PS3. However at last year’s E3, it seems they made up with Sony and are now showering them with exclusive content for the PS3. Valve’s upcoming first person platformer, Portal 2 will be going cross-platform which means PC gamers will be able to play with or against their PS3 and Mac counterparts. In addition to this, people who pick up Portal 2 for the PS3 will receive a copy of the game for PCs as well – absolutely free.

Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike incoming

Can’t get enough of Black Ops MP? You’re in luck as Activision announced the first batch of DLC for their bazillion dollar selling franchise called First Strike. Sadly it’s MP only but on the plus side, it’ll even ship with a co-operative mode. Zombie genocide ftw!

Mortal Kombat Webisodes incoming

Remember the kick ass Mortal Kombat viral that hit the net a while back? Well that’s now getting the Webisode treatment with full support from Warner Bros. And best of all? It stars Black Dynomite himself. Booyah!
