New Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 info have been posted. It's about the gameplay.
A few years back Sony had an idea for a break-apart dualshock 3 pad, now a company called Mad Genius Controller have come up with a working prototype and they demonstrate it using Skyrim on XBOX360. It's quite cool, take a look:
For the full article, check here at engadget.
So, a game I'm totally looking forward to, Among the Sleep, released a free alpha demo today via their Kickstarter page.
If you haven't heard about it, it's a first-person horror game where you play as toddler. Yes, a toddler. So the world is big and confusing, your overactive imagination fueling the frightening experiences. There are some jump scares of course, but beyond that, the environment is super creepy. Personally, I think it's amazing!
If this sort of thing is up your alley, please check it out!

EA has decided to get rid of Online Passes.
Full trailer in four days!
Sony hinted at a new game called Panopticon:
Speaking of publishers, Ubisoft recently put Patrice Désilets' personal project, 1666, on indefinite hold.
In case you're unaware, Mr. Désilets was the creative director for both Assassin's Creed and Assassin's Creed II. A few years ago he walked away from Ubisoft, and I believe in 2011, joined a THQ studio.
Late last year, THQ filed for chapter eleven bankruptcy, this followed by auctioning off its properties. Ubisoft happened to pick up quite of few of THQ's titles, 1666 among them. Almost immediately after this, Ubisoft fired Désilets, and just this week, (as stated earlier) put his project on hold.
Now there's some incredibly nasty rumors floating around that Ubisoft did this to keep 1666's IP, instead of canceling the the project altogether, which would return the copyright to Désilets via a contract. Come on Ubisoft, really?
I personally wasn't chopping at the bit for 1666 (though there's not a lot of info about it to get excited over), but I'm disappointed something so ugly is happening.
Well, at least there's more Scribblenausts coming! <3 Any game where I can solve a puzzle by utilizing dinosaurs is something I have to keep my eye on.
Yeah that was indeed nasty...especially with not even letting him gather his personal belongings and getting thrown out by bodyguards....I was like ...from my experience though, I would like to hear both versions of the story, if we ever get to details, cuz I doubt that Desilets was an innocent fairy...

... I need that
Nintendo has decided to make headlines this week because they hate free advertising or something. They’re aiming to collect all Youtube ad revenue from Let’s Players or Game Reviewers who cover Nintendo titles. I happen to follow several Youtubers, who have already stated they will no longer feature Nintendo games on their channels.
I know they’re differentiating arguments concerning this matter, but personally, I have purchased games due to watching a Youtube playthough and/or review, that I otherwise wouldn’t have spent the cash on. There’s a well written article on Penny Arcade over this matter: click.
Also, EA is apparently making a MOBA by the name of Dawngate. Not much is known about it besides EA claiming it’ll be a whole new “experience” to MOBA game-play. Personally, I think EA is a little too late to this party with beasts like LoL, HoN, and DOTA grasping their tendrils around this type of market. But who know!? Maybe it'll be a hit, and maybe I’ll actually not suck at this MOBA, unlike the others...
Yeah, $50 isn't too shabby at all.
BlazBlue is going to have an anime adaptation called BlazBlue: Alter Memory, which will follow the first game.
