The free DLC expansion that's "MMO simulation so good you'll think it's real" will be released on Steam on November 20, 2014. In an effort to perfectly simulate an MMO, the expansion includes five classes: warrior, rouge(?), magician, hunter, and microwave(???).

PETA is launching a new headquarters in Minecraft on Saturday, as a safe haven where players are not allowed to harm animals… or at least their pixelated counterparts.
So for all you creative sickos out there - that means no compact chicken cookers, barbaric egg farms, cow torture chambers or pig slaughterhouses.
From PETA's website:

Visitors to PETA's custom-made digital island will explore vast expanses of landscapes where the animals of Minecraft roam free. They can also visit extensive vegetable and flower gardens, walk through a fantastic re-creation of PETA's HQ, and discover an abandoned and decaying slaughterhouse.

PETA has gone to the aid of video game animals before, including Pokemon, World of Warcraft seals, the Tanooki suit in Mario Bros., and dogs in Call of Duty.

What a world we live in...

Looks like Ubisoft is really taking the crown from EA. Unity is getting terrible reviews and they are well deserved. With an abundance of glitches, framerate issues, and microtransactions in an already full price game, Ubisoft has gone off the deep end.

Pay $99.99 to fill in the rest of the face!

Pre-order and you can explore unknown territories!

UPDATE: Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has confirmed that this is a timed exclusive for Xbox, and that the game will come out for other platforms, but he doesn't know when: "Yes, the deal has a duration. I didn't buy it. I don't own the franchise." -Eurogamer


Xbox re-released the Rise of the Tomb Raider announcement trailer we saw at E3, only with a minor change: the end of the video states the game will be an Xbox exclusive for Holiday 2015.

The game's official tumblr posted this update:

Dear Tomb Raider Community,

As you may have seen, we've just announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider, coming Holiday 2015, is exclusively on Xbox. We consider all of you to be the lifeblood of Tomb Raider and the work we do at Crystal. I'd like to give you some insight into this decision, and why we feel this is the very best thing for the Tomb Raider sequel we're creating at the studio.

Tomb Raider in 2013 was a success due in large part to your continued support. Our goal has always been to deliver something truly special with Rise of the Tomb Raider. Today's announcement with Microsoft is one step to help us put Tomb Raider on top of action adventure gaming. Our friends at Microsoft have always seen huge potential in Tomb Raider and have believed in our vision since our first unveil with them on their stage at E3 2011. We know they will get behind this game more than any support we have had from them in the past - we believe this will be a step to really forging the Tomb Raider brand as one of the biggest in gaming, with the help, belief and backing of a major partner like Microsoft.

This doesn't mean that we're walking away from our fans who only play on PlayStation or on PC. Those are great systems, with great partners, and amazing communities. We have Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris coming to those platforms this December, and Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition is available on PS4.

We know that there are probably many more questions and concerns. Please do send them to us, and we'll answer to the best of our ability. Meanwhile we're going all out to try and make something truly special - the most ambitious Tomb Raider game ever built.

Thanks,

Darrell Gallagher
Crystal Dynamics Head of Studios
It's unclear how long this exclusivity will last, but it seems like Microsoft needed a game to compete with Uncharted 4.

Yes, Everest as in Mount Everest, in the Himalayas. Ubisoft is holding a contest that will allow one person to hike up Everest with a team of experts, and play Far Cry 4 along the way on a specially designed device that can withstand the elements. Get more details from the video above.

About 3 p.m., the caller said his foe had killed his brother and mother, but cops arriving at the Long Beach address found his 17-year-old video game opponent playing "Call of Duty" in his own home, CBS 2 reported.

The perpetrator placed his emergency call using the Internet and could be anywhere across the globe. Investigators are trying to track down the call's origin.

17 year old Christopher Roupe is dead after a police officer shot and killed him, mistaking a Wiimote in his hand for a gun. The officer was attempting to serve a warrant to the boy's father, and claims Roupe pointed a gun at her when he answered the door. It turns out that gun was a Wiimote. The officer is currently on administrative leave, and Roupe's family has hired an attorney.
