If you haven’t seen “Tell Your Children [Reefer Madness]“ the movie, go find it – it’s incredibly funny, educational, and it’s the basis for the brand new L.A. Noire DLC, appropriately titled Reefer Madness.

So what’s Cole up to this time? Oh, you know, same old, same old – rotating coke cans, chasing down bad guys, and accusing old women of brutally torturing and murdering their baby grandkids. Thankfully, it’s still a ton of fun.

The first trailer for the upcoming Fallout: New Vegas DLC Old World Blues is upon us, and it looks…interesting. The trailer itself features a skin stripping procedure, robo-scorpions, a mad scientist that sounds like Hubert J. Farnsworth, and an epic quest to “GET YOUR BRAIN BACK!”

It’s already been confirmed that you aren’t stripped of all your gear at the start of the DLC, so even if you aren’t a fan of the grindhouse-esque trailer, that’s easily a good thing. We’ll let you know how the finished product is pretty close to release, so stay tuned.

Without a doubt Valve is one of the most dedicated development studios when it comes to external media related to their games. Just one look at their “Meet the…” Team Fortress 2 shorts or the Left 4 Dead comic “The Sacrifice” and you’ll know what I mean. Today Valve announced that it has teamed up with Dark Horse comics to release all of their free online comics in a print form.

Produced under the title “Valve Presents: The Sacrifice and Other Steam-Powered Stories,” the comic collection will hit stores on November 16 for $29.99. Read more… »

It looks like Microsoft’s year of exclusivity is running out on last year’s hot XBLA titles. Not only is Limbo preparing to make the jump to PlayStation Network, but Konami has Castlevania Harmony of Despair slated to release on Sony’s digital service later this summer. We enjoyed the game when it launched last year and now PlayStation 3 owners will be able to get in on the action.

A little over a week ago we reported that it looked like hit indie title Limbo would be coming to the PlayStation Network sometime soon. Playdead’s Dino Patti announced on the PlayStation Blog that the title would be coming to the American PSN on July 19th. European PS3 owners will have the opportunity to download Limbo the following day.

Additionally, the game’s official website has Limbo slated for a worldwide release on August 2nd. While the game launched over a year ago on Xbox Live, Patti hopes “everyone will enjoy the game and the little extra secret [they] have in store” for PS3 and PC gamers.

Last weekend Ignition showed off the demo of El Shaddai that we previewed at E3 to the folks that attended Anime Expo 2011. Shane Bettenhausen, Ignition’s Business and Marketing Director, discussed El Shaddai’s religious source material . He hopes that the game won’t be seen as another religiously-themed title that just tries to “sell” religion.

Bettenhausen went on to say that Ignition “wanted to take this text and treat it in a new way, to give it to a team in Japan that doesn’t have any connection to that. They’re not religious in that way, so they could treat it as just mythology and create a new graphical style and a new gameplay style.” We’re certainly looking forward to delving into El Shaddai when it lands on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this month.

Today at EA’s Summer Games Conference, Bioware and EA revealed the release date for Legacy, the upcoming story driven DLC for Dragon Age II. Legacy will be hitting Xbox Live, PC/Mac, and PSN on July 26, 2011.

Hit the jump for more details surrounding its release.

At Japan Expo in France over the weekend Namco Bandai’s Makoto Yoshizumi  told Kingdom of Tales that there will be not be a North American release for Tales of Graces on the Wii. This is beginning to sound awfully familiar, something rather unfortunate for Wii-owning RPG fans.

As reasoning Yashizumi asserted “It would be next to impossible to condense all the game’s data on a Wii disc, so unfortunately, there will be no Wii release”, but rather would be releasing on PlayStation 3. While the localized version of the game contains features not seen in the original, saying Tales of Graces couldn’t fit on a Wii disc is interesting, seeing as the title has already seen a Wii release in Japan.

Preview: Journey Beta
By: | July 4th, 2011

A beta for hot upcoming indie title Journey landed on the PlayStation Network this week. While the beta is limited to a relatively small number of playtesters, I am one of the fortunate few.  Having played through the beta several times now, I would like to share my thoughts on the Journey experience with you.

With Journey thatgamecompany is crafting an entire experience that focuses an aspect often overlooked in gaming. Doing something new and interesting would be enough for most developers, but the Los Angeles-based studio isn’t just stopping at reinventing the adventure game with Journey, players are also in store for a refreshing take on online multiplayer.

Sony is offering PlayStation Network users free games as a part of the Welcome Back program. Unfortunately, the offer is ending this weekend. Sony’s been pretty generous, offering up to four free games on account of taking so long to re-secure their online service after that “unauthorized intrusion”.

If you want to get your hands on titles like Little Big Planet,  Super Stardust HD, inFamous, Wipeout HD, Modnation Racers, and Killzone: Liberation for free you should turn on that PSP or PS3 before Sunday July 3rd.

Limbo coming to PS3
By: | June 30th, 2011

I’m excited to tell you all that Limbo will soon be coming to the PlayStation 3. The title was previously an Xbox Live Arcade exclusive, being a part of Microsoft’s Summer of Arcade 2010. The good word comes from the Korean ratings board, informing us that a multiplatform release is in the works.

When Gamer Limit reviewed the game last year, Sean Carey awarded Limbo a perfect 10 saying that it “it made [him] think, it made [him] feel, and it was incredibly fun to play.”  I, like many PlayStation 3 owners, had to sit back and watch everyone  gush about this game a year ago. This PlayStation Network release is really great news. Hopefully, Playdead’s premiere title will see similar success on PSN as it did on XBLA.
