Now that Disney has acquired Disney and shut down LucasArts, they wasted little time in licensing out the exclusive rights to Star Wars games to EA in a multi-year publishing and licensing deal.
EA first announced titles are being developed by Visceral Games, best known for Deadspace, DICE, best known for Battlefield, and BioWare, best known for Star Wars the Old Republic. Hey, wait! Does this mean we can FINALLY get the Star Wars the Old Republic SINGLE PLAYER RPG we wanted all along?
Frank Gibeau, President of EA Labels, had this to say:
After Nintendo revealed that they will not host an E3 Press Conference at E3 2013, 2K Games has sent word out that they will not be having a booth at E3 2013. Instead, the company will have meeting rooms.
Ronnie Singh, Digital Marketing Director, had this to say:
"While 2K will not have a booth on the show floor at this year’s E3 conference, we will have a lot of great news coming your way this spring. Stay tuned for our live gameplay and event broadcasts to see the latest gameplay from our upcoming titles."

The first thing I have to say about StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, is: Congratulations, Blizzard! In recent memory, I have never be disappointed with the stories you tell in your titles. “Back in the day,” I played Brood War and got pretty dang good at it. In the days of my youth, I had time to devote myself and could beat even some of the better Korean players. Things are a bit different in the present day. Players have improved their skills, strategies have changed, and there is a lot to re-learn.

Are you prepared for the Alien Invasion on your Mac? Get ready because later this Spring XCOM: Enemy Unknown is coming to OS X! Originally released last year on the PC, the Mac version will include all previously released add-on content. This includes the Second Wave, Elite Soldier, and Slingshot.
There are currently no plans for the Mac version to come to Steam. So if you were hoping for a cross-play version, you are out of luck. Pricing hasn't been confirmed yet. But hey, at least the Mac platform is getting one of the best Strategy Games in years, right?
Razer has shown off an intern playing Crysis 3, sitting on a beanbag, and running it on the Razer Edge Gaming Tablet. While it is hard to see just how well it is running, the fact that the upcoming tablet can run games like Crysis 3 is an amazing accomplishment for the power of the platform.
