Recently in Gaming: LA Noire PC, City of Heroes F2P

Eurogamer Expo 2011 kicked off September 22nd through the 25th. One highlight of this years Eurogamer Expo was the release of Star Wars: The Old Republic’s release date. Watch the video of the announcement here. Eurogamer will return in 2012.

The wait for the PC version of LA Noire is over. It will release on November 8th 2011 in the US and the 11 in EU.

The Skyrim voice-cast has been revealed: featuring Max Von Sydow, Christopher Plummer, Joan Allen, etc. Check out this list of perks and racials.

You might want to read the EA/Origin Terms of Service. It seems that EA is taking a very rough stance on cheaters. If you are caught using a cheat, access to ALL of your EA games will be revoked. I absolutely approve of this as long as Punkbuster is not used to decide who is or is not cheating.

IGN has released hour long footage of the Diablo 3 beta. Here’s a playlist on YouTube. The game has been delayed until early 2012. I guess those who dreamed of making a career out of selling D3 loot will have to wait.

The same company that created Just Cause 2 have created a pretty decent wildlife hunting game. Check out The Hunter.

Just when I thought the world was rid of Dead Island headlines it appears that Lionsgate is interested in making a movie. Somehow I foreseeUwe Boll directing the film. Personally I would prefer Romero.

City of Heroes: Freedom is now free-to-play.

Wolfire Games has released a new video detailing the changes made to the alpha of their Overgrowth title.
