inSANE Guillermo del Toro

THQ's pledge to announce their new Volition-made Guillermo del Toro game at the VGA's over the weekend resulted in a teaser bearing the title "inSANE" and the year 2013. Previously, THQ had been sheepish about publicly associating themselves with del Toro, but that's all changed now, and they've even confirmed that "inSANE" will become a full trilogy.

Mass Effect 3 PlayStation 3

Electronic Arts dated "Mass Effect 2" for the PlayStation 3 last week, but users will have to substitute an interactive comic for "ME1" if they want to impact the trilogy's web of decisions and alterable outcomes. It turns out that this won't be an issue for "ME2" players when the third chapter arrives at the end of of 2011, however. A brief description of "Mass Effect 3" leaked out over EA's online store last week, and a trailer on the VGA's Saturday confirmed what it said; now, EA's brought their evolving announcement full circle with confirmation that "ME3" will launch "simultaneously" on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC for the 2011 holiday season.

X-Men Destiny teaser

Silicon Knights' upcoming release "X-Men: Destiny" was announced a couple of months ago with writer Mike Carey involved, but we didn't get a lot of meaty info on the title beyond the fact that it would feature some mutants and destiny would play a role. Well, Activision released a new teaser trailer via GameTrailers and Spike, and though it doesn't contain any of the in-game footage you may have wanted to see, it does show off the shapes of some recognizable characters and a monologue by optic blast wielder Scott Summers. Have a look after the jump.

Mass Effect 3

It looks like EA let a little more Mass Effect information out of the vault than they intended to today. Though the company confirmed an official release date for "Mass Effect 2" on the PlayStation 3, and did so with a wealth of helpful other details, they quickly retracted a listing at the official EA Store explaining some fascinating details about the "Mass Effect 3" story.

Fallout New Vegas patch

Recent news about the "Fallout: New Vegas — Dead Money" DLC has been fun and wonderful, but users on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC have some more fundamental needs to be served by the bug-swatting "comprehensive patch" that Bethesda mentioned in November. Luckily, PS3 owners can begin downloading that set of fixes today, and players on other systems should be able to grab it soon.

Mass Effect 2 PlayStation 3

EA has been up front in the past about their intentions to get "Mass Effect 2" onto the PlayStation 3 in January 2011, but until now they'd avoided committing to a specific date. That's no longer an issue today since they've confirmed a January 18 arrival for North America and January 21 for Europe. They're even going to throw in some DLC with a non-traditional substitute for the original "Mass Effect" and its role in defining story elements.

Final Fantasy XIV

The critical bugs that delayed the "Final Fantasy XIV" beta test a few months back turned out to be ominous signs of things to come, and the team working on the game at Square Enix finally reached a crossroads this week where some big-time changes became necessary. Accordingly, Square Enix president Yoichi Wada issued an official statement apologizing and explaining why staff replacements are now taking place and the PlayStation 3 version of "FFXIV" will be delayed.

Strong Bad PlayStation 3

"Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People" has already followed in the footsteps of the animated shorts that came before it on HomestarRunner.com and made itself availlable on PC's. Its episodes have also slipped onto the Wii one at a time, where they've brightened many a console owner's day. The Telltale games release has not, however, been an easy option for PlayStation 3 and Mac owners up until now. The publisher intends to end that situation once and for all before the end of the year, though, when the gruff-voiced little luchador comes to the PSN.

DS Lite RadioShack

Walmart's $89 Black Friday sale on DS Lites doesn't look nearly as impressive today, now that RadioShack has decided to stick $74.97 price tags on its handheld Nintendo systems both online and in-store. That means that for less than a lot of single collector's edition console games, you can now buy a fully-functional DS and presumably help the Shack make some room on its shelves for some 3DS boxes in 2011.

Storm and C. Viper

If none of the other fighters announced thus far for "Marvel vs. Capcom 3" have met your standards for workplace-appropriate attire or weather powers, you'll be pleased to know that C. Viper of Street Fighter series fame and Ms. Ororo Munroe of the X-Men have now been officially outed. They'll bust knuckles and miniature tornadoes against the likes of She-Hulk, Zero, M.O.D.O.K. and the rest of the huge cast next year, and when they do, you can plan on seeing generous doses of electrical current flow out of them.
