N3: Nightly News Narration - Bioshock at Sea, Tearaway Delayed, & More

Ready for more Bioshock Infinite? 2K Games and Irrational Games are bringing gamers into Andrew Ryan’s underwater city--Rapture. Not only that, but you get to play as both Booker DeWitt and Elizabeth. Creator Ken Levine calls it “A Love Letter to the Fans.”

Burial at Sea, the name of the DLC, is divided up into two parts. The first part you will play as Booker DeWitt and the second Part will have you controlling Elizabeth. Each DLC will cost $15 each or $29.99 for the DLC Season Pass. Also included in the package is the $5 Challenge Pack available today on Steam and Xbox 360.

While we we don’t know the date of the Burial at Sea DLC, Nintendo has dated the black version of the Nintendo 3DS XL for August 11, 2013. This is the same day as Mario and Luigi: Dream Team releases at retail.

The 3DS is still available in Pink, Blue, Red, Animal Crossing Edition, and Pikachu Edition.

In other Nintendo news, the “Big N” has filed a trademark for Eternal Darkness. This clears them to release a downloadable version of the popular survival horror game that originally appeared, in 2002, on the GameCube platform, from Silicon Knights. 

Bad news for PS Vita fans. MediaMolecule’s upcoming title Tearaway has been delayed. This is according to a blog post the company posted today. They go on to say:
“Tearaway is our first handheld game, set in a totally new world, with characters on a new adventure. Throughout development we have constantly explored all the ways we could think of to create the most fun and enjoyable experiences possible on PS Vita, whilst also learning how to make a 3D creative platformer! We are really proud of the work we are doing, and are really excited to share it with you!

We are now in the final stages of development, and have come to the realisation that we need a little more time than we anticipated to finish the game; to tie all of the mechanics, story and amazing visuals together into the adventure that we want you to play. To give us that time, we’ve decided to move the release date by one month, from mid-October, to November 22nd.

We’re really, really sorry for the minor delay, we promise you hand on heart that the wait will be worthwhile! Thanks for being patient, please don’t be too cross with us, lots of love, Mm xxxx”

Razer, on the other hand, is busy readying their next MMO Gaming Mouse--the Razer Naga. This features 12 thumb buttons with mechanical switches and allows for easy to use macros. Min-Lian Tan, CEO of Razer had this to say: 
“When we launched the original Razer Naga gaming mouse several years ago, we had no idea that it would rise to become the best-selling MMO gaming mouse the world has ever seen, helping launch a slew of other MMO mice. In fact, we expect the copycats to be the first in line to order the new Razer Naga. This new iteration is no different--mechanical thumb grid buttons for better game control, improved ergonomics that were already widely accepted as the benchmark for this type of mouse within the editorial community and intuitive software that makes MMO gaming more efficient.”
