The folks who made Titanfall just announced that they're working on a 3rd person Star Wars game. Hopefully it'll go better than Titanfall did.

Oh, and Sega did announce Dawn of War 3 yesterday too.

Hopefully it won't be multiplayer only like most EA games these days. I really want a good, modern story driven Star Wars game.

Marvel Heroes players? Want a free hero? Head over to marvelheroes.com in about 8 hours and enter either Teamcap or Teamironman to get the appropriate hero. Sadly, those of us on Teamsquirrelgirl are out of luck.

And the new Battlefield just got announced. And it's set in World War I. And it uses The White Stripes as background music, because that screams out WWI.

Still, nice to see a shooter in that era. Plus triplanes.

I'm pretty excited about this. I love WW1 games. A lot of people don't like them because the weapons are slower and less powerful but neither of those things are what drives me towards MP games.

Well, Final Fantasy X and X-2 will be released on Steam on Friday.  Nope, no previous indication that it was coming to PC, but here it is.

Shame about Disney Infinity shutting down.

That's why I'm always wary of getting into any game that's based on collectibles. So far I've played a few that friends had, but never picked them up myself.

I might still pick up a few figures because they look neat.

Are they not now even more collectible?

The ones that have been opened and used, probably not so much. I imagine thier resale value will crash the same way Guitar Hero controllers did in the past, GameStops will be so flooded with them they'll end up worth pennies.

Well Disney Infinity is still going to be very playable, and the toybox gives it the titular infinite possibility too. I wish my son had been old enough to get in to it.

I'm kind of surprised it was Disney that folded first.

Personally I LOVED the first one, then found the second one disappointing due to the games being so samey and didn't pick up the third one. I think their big mistake was making them themed instead of including a lot of variety like they did with the first set.

Third is apparently the best one.
