Square Enix and Eidos Montreal have released the long awaited Director's Cut to Deus Ex: Human Revolution in the US on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U and PC. Europe and PAL territories must wait until Friday.
The overhaul brings with it significant changes like a New Game + mode, second screen features, new augmentations, better visuals, stealth approaches to boss fights, and more.
It seems no one at the British tabloid The Sun has ever played video games, at least in their tech department, because the paper has listed Sarif Industries, the fictional cybernetics company in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, as a real one.
The Diablo III 1.0.2 update that was released for the PlayStation 3 version on the 1st October is now available for Xbox 360 version as well. The patch's chief function is to fix crashes during cutscenes.
Deep Silver has announced that the final DLC for Metro: Last Light, the Chronicles Pack, is now available. The DLC costs $4.99 / £3.99 / €4.99 and is included in the Metro: Last Light Season Pass.
Eidos Montreal has released a second gameplay walkthrough for the impending Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut edition, which arrives next week. This time we're in Hengsha at the Alice Garden Pods.
Shareable Infologs are teased where players can take pictures in-game, annotate them and then share with friends - it also supports voice messages. The future is here.
Lead writer Mac Walter has said the next Mass Effect from BioWare won't be using any of Commander Shephard's 'events' from the first three games as anchor points in the next instalment.
One of the team's key goals is that it can't "just feel like a spin-off," that it must be a Mass Effect adventure "at its heart, at its core." No Shepard or "Shepard specific companions."
What's gameplay like in The Wildlands of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII? Square Enix has just released a new 8-and-a-half minute video showing us just that, narrated by game design director Yuji Abe.
The Wildlands is a "sprawling natural wilderness" to explore, where beasties run amok. Chaos spreads rather aggressively in this open free area, teeming with sidequests.
Looking for a paramour in Thedas? BioWare will be including the studio's almost trademark romancing in the upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition, but they'll be going in more of a Mass Effect direction.
They'll approach those more intimate moments in a "mature and tasteful" manner, but action between the sheets won't be the focus.
Smut Cinematic director Jonathan Perry says they're rather costly.
Cyberpunk 2077 is CD Projekt RED's adaptation of Mike Pondsmith's pen-and-paper roleplaying game, due in 2015. The game is exclusively for PC, but that will probably change, according to the studio.
At New York Comic Con 2013, Dark Horse Comics, which is a veteran at licensed comic books, has announced that the studio would be releasing a series based on CD Projekt RED's The Witcher, as expected
Gearbox Software and 2K Games have announced a new promotion for Borderlands 2 which will give away $100K worth of prizes, as players will be doing an in-game scavenger hunt and in-game tasks to unlock special features.
Ubisoft has a treat for gamers attending New York Comic Con 2013 next week: the publisher will have South Park: The Stick of Truth and Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag on the floor. The company will also have the mobile app for Watch Dogs available, too.
There's a fair bit of introspection going on at Blizzard with Diablo III's auction house getting the chop, and now Senior Technical Game Designer Wyatt Cheng expressing discontent with combat's pacing.
Right now health pools going from "full to nearly empty" in the blink of an eye is hurting the game, he says, as death becomes "very binary." Rapid healing ruins just as much.
The highly anticipated South Park RPG, subtitled The Stick of Truth, finally has a release date. The game is being released on the 10th December 2013 in North America, and the 12th December 2013 in Europe, for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Namco Bandai has confirmed that while hard-as-nails RPG Dark Souls 2 will be getting a visual overhaul, it will be keeping its choice of physics as it continues to use the Havok Physics engine.
Game director Yui Tanimura has said he'd want 'next-gen physics' if Dark Souls was made for Xbox One and PS4, as graphics are at a "maximum level" on consoles.
Michael Ruve from Piranha Bytes confirms to RPG fans that his studio is working on a new role-playing game, and so far we know little except it's got better NPC navigation.
Cloth animation and physically based lighting is also in the new RPG formula from the developer that brought us the Gothic series, and more recently Risen.

Court-appointed receiver Richard Land for the defunct 38 Studios has announced Kingdoms of Amalur is finally being put under the hammer. The IP will be auctioned this month via an "Internet marketplace".
Land argues it was the "complexity of the game itself" that delayed the process. He feels good about its chances as it's all "current" in artwork, tech and concept.
Blizzard has announced that it's rectifying what many fans of the series considered a mistake: the Diablo III auction houses, both real money and in-game gold, are being removed on the 18th March, 2014.
UbiArt Framework-based RPG Child of Light is about to get a little more interesting as creative director Patrick Plourde, having worked on the beast that was Far Cry 3, is now spinning a 2.5D fantasy tale.
While still remaining a "fairly linear storyline", giving players a few choices along the way doesn't hurt, Plourde feels. Will being a princess turn off gamers? It shouldn't matter.
