Gaming News Snippets: 9/15/12 – 9/21/12

I’m away on vacation this week, so I am in a bit of a bind for time in writing this week’s Gaming News feature. So as I have done in the past when time was against me, I will be giving headlines and snippets of gaming news this week instead of more fully fleshed out stories. So let us begin!


A lot of retailers have been selling out of pre-orders for Nintendo’s new Wii U console. GameStop has begun taking wait list pre-orders for the machine too. (Source: GameStop)


Browser based Indie game Slender is getting a sequel, with better graphics, more storyline, and more gameplay. (Source: Kotaku)



Apparently in respect of Mega Man’s 25th anniversary, Capcom is releasing Rockman Over, an iOS game that seems to be an original title that looks similar to the original series, but also looks to be something entirely different. (Source: Kotaku)



New information about the last game in the Professor Layton series, Professor Layton and the Advanced Civilizationwas released. (Source: Kotaku)



A second revision of Sony’s PlayStation 3 hardware was revealed. It is 25% smaller and 20% lighter than the previous model. (Source: Kotaku)

My brother’s second article in the “Happy Crappy Gamer” piece over at Machinima.com was released, and it is definitely worth a read. (Source: Machinima)



The chances of Killer Instinct 3 being made just went up a small percent as Microsoft renewed the license for the KI trademark. (Source: Machinima)

I've been writing about video games for years and playing them even longer. You'll find me playing all types of games, old and new. Mega Man III is greater than Mega Man II.
