Mass Effect 3, an action RPG for Xbox 360, PC, Playstation 3, and WiiU, could have yet another DLC pack on the way. Back in December of 2012, Bioware had teased that the next single player expansion for Mass Effect 3 would be an “all hands on deck” one. Today, BioWare producers Mike Gamble and Casey Hudson tweeted two teaser pictures for Mass Effect 3. The DLC will possibly feature a vibrant casino type setting that Casey Hudson said “Looks like a nice place for some R&R…” in his one tweet. While the second image shows an armored Krogan carrying a large and heavy looking melee weapon Mike Gamble said “Does not like a guy you’d like to mess with…” in his tweet. Mass Effect chief composer Sam Hulick has also showed he will contribute to the new DLC after he had no involvement with Mass Effect 3′s DLC Leviathan and DLC Omega. Seth Green, whom already has played the voice of Normandy pilot Joker, will also be returning again for this Mass Effect 3 DLC .
Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two earned decent reviews upon its release back in November 2012. Epic Mickey 2 is available on WiiU, Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Mac, and PC. It received praise for Epic Mickey 2‘s story and surprises, but got some negatives from its jumping mechanics and of course your ‘wonderful’ partner Oswald. However it sold 1 million fewer copies than the original Epic Mickey back in 2010. Disney’s Epic Mickey had sold 1.3 million copies in North America and Epic Mickey 2 sold 270,000 copies. The Epic Mickey series developer Junction Point Studios stated that Epic Mickey was planned as a four game series, however no other games have been announced for the series just yet. Does Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion for the 3DS count as one of the four games? I actually hope not. I myself really did enjoy the first Epic Mickey, so I’m looking forward to more in this Disney series. But video games are all about sales, which leaves the possibility of an Epic Mickey 3 in limbo despite the interest in making it.
Here is a trailer for Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two…

Microsoft showed off the new game in the Gears of War series… Gears of War: Judgement. It is a prequel to the entire series and goes over the stories of Augustus Cole and Damon Baird. Check out the E3 trailer below:
Very few details were announced at Microsoft’s Pre E3 2012 press conference.I’m sure we can expect plenty of Locust killing and lots of explosions. Let’s just hope that they come up with some new game design ideas, level designs and enemy designs, because Gears of War 3 felt like the series was being dragged on without much innovation.
Microsoft and developer, People Can Fly, have scheduled Gears of War: Judgement for release some time in 2013 for XBOX360.
