Etrian Odyssey Untold: Millenium Girl

Today Atlus announced that "Etrian Odyssey Untold: Millenium Girl" would be making its way stateside some time this fall. It is, unfortunately, not a Lena Dunham-penned comedy-drama about a group of landsknechts and alchemists trying to figure out where DUMBO is. "Millenium Girl" is, however, a remake of the 2007 DS title that launched the entire "Etrian Odyssey" franchise.

The North American announcement brings new details on the new modes, mechanics, and cut scenes coming to Atlus' seminal cartographic dungeon-crawler.

Since the announcement of "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" earlier this year, CD Projekt RED's official line has been that their open-world RPG is in development for PC, PlayStation 4, and "other next-gen consoles." During Microsoft's E3 presentation yesterday, the Warsaw-based studio officially announced an Xbox One version of "The Witcher 3."

“Microsoft delivered some pretty amazing technology and we’re extremely excited that we’ll be able to show the full potential of REDengine 3," enthused John Mamais, CD Projekt RED's head of production, in a prepared statement. "No boundaries, no technological limitations -- the hardware’s pure power and our creative vision will produce some outstanding visuals and unparalleled gameplay.”

The Xbox One version will include optional Kinect voice commands allowing players to switch weapons and spell signs on the fly.

To mark the occasion, CD Projekt RED have also released two videos. A gameplay trailer (embedded above) introduces the broad strokes of the game's story and touts its diverse, open world, a familiar talking point by now.

Eagle-eyed fans have also discovered a hidden message in the trailer, which points to a secret website promising to "lead to something big." So far, a desktop wallpaper showing Geralt on a horse is the only thing on offer.

PS4

The console war might have just begun, but in a lot of gamers' minds it's all ready over. One of the biggest issues has been the consumer unfriendly way that MS has positioned the Xbox one -- online checks, defelcting game sharing on the publisher's shoulders, and the murky outlook about how used games might work with their system.

Late last night, Sony shot back against Microsoft's DRM by introducing a clear outlook on how games can be shared, traded, and bought used.

e3-2013_SuperMario_3d-world
When Nintendo makes a promise, they generally tend to keep it. A few months ago(http://multiplayerblog.mtv.com/2013/05/20/mario-kart-3d-mario-smash-bros-highlight-e3-nintendo-direct/) the team at Nintendo promised that there was a new 3D Super Mario game in development for the Wii U, and that it would be playable at this year’s E3, and they kept their word. However, Mario’s fans may not have guessed that they would be playing it before the end of the year. Announced this morning, as part of the pre-E3 Nintendo Direct presentation, “Super Mario 3D World” will be landing on the Wii U’s this November, and bringing some surprises along with it.  As the follow up to the wildly successful “Super Mario 3D Land” for the 3DS, “3D World” takes Mario’s famous 3D platforming to a whole new level, and brings back some old friends in the process.
