Rayman Legends has been delayed for months now, pushed all the way back to a September release. Since the Wii U was released, this kind of delay isn't surprising at all; we've been hearing stories for a while now of games being delayed in order for a Wii U version to be developed. This is a new twist on the subject, however.  It appears that the game has been fully developed and is ready on the Wii U, but Ubisoft is keeping the release back in order for the PlayStation 3 and 360 versions to be developed.

As we're getting close to a new handheld release from Sony, a lot of rumors are flying around. Gamerxchange has a few rumors to add to the mix today, and Sony just released a new patent request with some new ports and details on the system. Although it's certainly hard to know exactly what the system will look like, we can certainly see what other people are reporting and draw our own conclusions.

Head past the jump for more.

Adam Sessler is stuck this week addressing something that is rather uncomfortable to have to deal with: people assuming he and his company accepted money to say positive things about a company and recent game release—in this case, EA and Dead Space 3. This being the internet, we often get suspicious when advertising pops up for a game or company in particular that is then attached to something a journalist is talking about. It doesn't help that last year some people did step forward to say that in certain cases sometimes advertising money is linked to saying more positive things, or simply omitting the negative remarks entirely.

Zelda Informer was at the forefront of this conversation just last year, and it was concluded that while it does happen in certain cases and with certain publications, it doesn't mean that everyone is doing it. As an example, we get ads from several different publishers through our advertising agency that handles all of our incoming funding. Not only are the writers at our prospective sites not even aware of what companies are running ads with us, none of the income is actually based on what we specifically say about a game or company.

Pach-Attack!

Michael Pachter doesn't often do shows in the middle of the week, but this time he has, with a 13+ minute special that talks about the PlayStation 4. He has had a chance to sit down with six different developers who are currently making games for the system and ask them a slew of questions that many have been wondering about. Essentially, the bottom line in how the system performs versus actually getting exact specs. If you don't feel like or are unable to watch the video above, we have a breakdown after the jump.

Bungie has started an alternate-reality game today on their site. This one seems like it'll be revealing information on their next big title, Destiny.  Alternate-reality games, for the uninitiated, are a form of digital storytelling where various mediums are used, and clues and plots are dropped on various webpages and into various real-world locations to tell a story or release new information about a product.  The "trailhead", or starting place to get into the game was posted this morning, and it certainly looks intriguing.

You know how sometimes you hear a rumor, and you get excited, even if it's not 100% accurate, because it just means something big might be happening with your favorite franchise?  Well, if you happen to read Japanese and be a fan of a little series called "Pokémon," well—this CoroCoro flyer should definitely grab ahold of your attention.

Good news today for fans of the Batman branded series of "Arkham" games, to date including Batman: Arkham Asylum, and Batman: Arkham City. John K Martin, who is Time Warner's CFO, announced in an investor call today that the next release in the series is on its way. "... we also have a strong games release this year," said Martin, "which will include the next release in the Batman Arkham franchise. So all in all, we expect Warners to post another very strong year in 2013. And with a little luck, the year should be as good or maybe even a little bit better than 2012."

Will it be better? Only time will tell...

The next issue of CoroCoro is due any day now and that means you can expect its contents to leak anytime soon, like right now perhaps. The next issue of CoroCoro, if indeed this is a legitimate photo, revealed the newest evolution for Eevee, Ninfia.

It looks a little like Skyla right? Does that mean it's a flying type? Probably not. When looking at a Pokémon's type it is usually displayed with a color scheme and in fact the Dragon type logo uses the color scheme of blue and pink, or at least they're very similar. The Pokémon Milotic is considered by many to be based off a dragon or a serpent of sorts and it also involves the same color scheme further suggesting it might be a dragon type. But of course, what good is speculation when the truth will come out within the year?

A new Eeveelution was expected, seeing as the upcoming Pokémon short featured a color themed subtitle which matched the previous Eeveelutions and their types, but a single character was left over that didn't match any of the previous. On a side note, the upcoming Pokemon movie has received the new title of Extremespeed Genesect and the Reawakening of Mewtwo.

So tell us. What do you think of this new and supposed Eeveelution? Do you like it or hate it? Or are you going to wait for an official confirmation before you make a full judgement? Tell us in the comments!

As internet-browsing gamers, we all get caught up in the infamous console wars from time-to-time, where Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft fans argue over which is best. Although it is about much more than merely which is better, because the debate often quickly becomes about personal attack. Nintendo fans are criticized as being children and female, or mothers and grandmothers.

On the other hand, PlayStation and XBox gamers are bagged for being simpletons who think they are cool guys, but apparently have nothing but a taste for bloodshed with games like Call of Duty. These stereotypes of the console wars couldn’t be further from the truth, and yet the debates rage on.


I love me some portal, but I sure wish I could solve all of Aperture's mind-bending puzzles on the go. While the day when Portal because a portable title may well be a long ways away, this DS Homebrew by Smealum sure gives us an idea of what Portal on the Nintendo DS could be like. The mod is described as being "Nowhere near playable," at the current time, but the nifty video shows off quite a few staples of the franchise. Included are the Portal Gun, Energy Balls, and best of all, the Companion Cube!

"This is still extremely early footage so please don't be too harsh. Lots of debug features are present, including the ability to fly, see portals through walls and move cubes from a distance. Also, keep in mind this was shot in an emulator which provides good but still less than perfect rendering. As such, be aware that most (not all, but still) of the graphical glitches you can see in this video don't happen on hardware (mostly the portal transition is a lot nicer on an actual DS)."

Since its release, Colors! 3D for Nintendo 3DS has been a wonderful way for hobbyist and professional artists to share their work with others. We, however, are amidst a revolution in uses for the brilliant eShop title. User masterclaw360 has discovered a profound new way to utilize Colors! 3D's online sharing service. Curious? Head past the jump to see his extraordinary revelation.

What will the new Xbox look like?  Well, it's certainly hard to know for certain; the image here is just an artist mockup.  However, Kotaku just released the inside scoop on what the internals of new Xbox has in store, and let's just say it looks pretty good - though there are a few worrying pieces stuck in there.  For starters, the box is codenamed "Durango"—note that Durango isn't the final name for the system, but just the name Microsoft will use to refer to it before it's "officially" announced to the public. Check below the jump to see information on the specs.

It appears the Wii U is becoming increasingly irrelevant, especially to sports gaming. The Wii U was left off the press release for Madden 25 (next years Madden will be called Madden 25 instead of Madden 14, in an attempt to confuse their consumer base).  And now, it appears Tiger Wood's PGA Tour won't be coming to the Wii U at the end of March.

Ragnar Tørnquist's adventure series launched in 1999 is back, with a Kickstarter, of all things.  With over $600,000 of $850,000 raised in only a few days, it seems fans of the series are extremely interested in continuing the story that was left on a cliffhanger back in 2006 with the last installment, Dreamfall.  The release is tenatively listed as November 2014, and a steal at $25 for a digital download.  Fans can of course pay more, and a cool 5K will earn you naming and development rights on a character, or the opportunity to hang out with the development team and make suggestions of your own.  Looks like I need to start saving up.

This week marked the last shows of Attack of the Show and X-Play as gaming television network G4 will be closing their doors very soon.  X-Play decided to take the opportunity to go ahead and spoil the ending of every game ever.

Do I need to say this?  Spoiler Alert.

Seriously.  Spoiler... Alert.  You've been alerted.  Catch the video after the jump!
