In the United states, 476,000 copies of the game have enabled Wii U players to be a kid now and then a squid now. Japan also loves the game, with 368,000 units sold there. Europe sneaks in behind with 230,000 copies.

Nintendo continues to roll out DLC weapons and maps, most of which seems to be on the disc, locked away behind a timer. The most recent, the Luna Blaster, was made available last night.

The Luna Blaster, which functions a bit like an ink shotgun, is coming to Splatoon tonight at 7 p.m. PT.

A short-range weapon, the Luna Blaster has a high fire rate and explosive impact, but won't do much at long distance. The Luna Blaster joins other recent additions, the Splash-O-Matic and the Zapper, which is modeled after the Duck Hunter blaster weapon.

Klei Entertainment Hints At Don't Starve Coming To Xbox One

Since its initial release on PC in 2013, Don't Starve has slowly made its way across all major platforms. The survival adventure game jumped to PlayStation 4 and Vita in 2014, PlayStation 3 and Wii U this year, and now, the developer is talking about a new platform for its game: Xbox One.

It all started when a Twitter user noticed that Don't Starve was listed by USK, the German games ratings board. The user tweeted out his findings, and Klei Entertainment's official Twitter account took notice and quickly addressed it. "Hmmm... I guess the cat's out of the bag! We'll update with more info once we have a date," the tweet says.

Age of Empires II never dies. Developer Hidden Path Entertainment revived the 1999 title two years ago with an HD remake, and is now in the process of creating an all-new expansion called The African Kingdoms.

According to a Twitch interview with producer Ryan Chaply at E3, this expansion adds a new twist on building foundations: different foundations such as sand or stone will lead to varying levels of stability. Chaply also revealed the Mali as the second civilization in The African Kings.

At the base “pay what you want” level, you’ll get Borderlands and three of the expansions: The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot, and The Secret Armory of General Knoxx. No sign (yet) of Claptrap’s Robot Revolution.

If you pay more than the average ($4.60 at the time of publication), you’ll get Borderlands 2, the Psycho Pack (Krieg), the Mechromancer Pack (Gaige), the Creature Slaughterdome, and a coupon for 75 percent off Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. At $15 or more, you’ll unlock the Borderlands 2 season pass, the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2, and Headhunter pack 5: Son of Crawmerax.

Report: Midway’s 1980s Arcade Hit Rampage To Become Movie Starring The Rock

about X hours ago from

There have been some curious choices for video game-related films over the past few decades. Super Mario Bros. is strange. Double Dragon is campy. Uwe Boll’s movies are… something else. Next summer, The Rock is going to see if he can bring magic to a 1980s classic.

I used to love going to the arcade to play Midway’s Rampage. Ralph (the giant werewolf) was my favorite, but there was no real difference between him and George (the towering ape) and Lizzie (the enormous lizard). They all punched down buildings and ate people with grace (provided you jumped from the edifice before it collapsed beneath you).

The only thing the game was missing was Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to fight the monsters, or so New Line believes. He’s reportedly starring in a film adaptation of the game in collaboration with members of the team that brought The Rock’s latest movie, San Andreas, to theaters.
