Shift 2: Unleashed
Today's News Rounded Up in One Handy Post
Written By
View author's profile

All work and no play makes Rich a dull boy, but it really hasn't been dull in terms of news today, as there's been a deluge of stories covering a variety of gaming topics from Kinect, delayed DLC, cancelled games and a bunch of new announcements.

It's like the circle of life or a mythical Hydra. One game gets cancelled, two more get announced. One dies, two are born. Beautiful. So, while Mega Man Universe has bitten the dust, Spider-Man: Edge of Time is set to follow Shattered Dimensions and BloodRayne makes a comeback via XBLA.

If none of the above interests you, than how about two legal battle lawsuit type things? It's Silicon Knights versus Epic and Ubisoft versus THQ. Can't they all just get along?

Once you've digested that lot, there's a review of Shift 2: Unleashed to check out too. It's out now in North America and coming tomorrow (well, today technically) in the UK and Europe. Is it any good? Read the review to find out!

Here's the day's news in a handy one-stop shop list. Boom!:

Well I for one appreciate the extra effort taken to collect all of the links to today's news and putting them all in one "end of the day" update. Thanks, Richard. Don't let the spammers and haters get you down because they don't like a nice thing.

They should leave his comments up there. It's more humiliating for him if everyone sees it than if they just get deleted. How low can he go! -10 and counting.

I agree these kinds of updates are nice. I've been extreeeeemely busy the last week and don't quite have a lot of free time. Getting a wrapup today was very pleasant. That being said though...

Capcom, you son of a bitch. Stop killing my childhood hero.

Wow you're right, I obviously lose. How can I beat someone who was first haha. The most elite of them all.

You were right in saying that I would have completely forgotten this ever happened. But the fact that I kept you here trolling means I'll remember you now and I'll just give you a thumbs down on any future articles just for fun. Not that you care, you seem to enjoy it haha.

@12: I agree completely about that "Capcom, you bitch" part. They won't even tell us WHY they canceled Mega Man Universe. We just get this random nonsense about "various circumstances" that doesn't tell us a damn thing.

Is the game set back by the loss of Inafune? Did the earthquake and tsunami have anything to do with it? Did someone at Capcom just wake up the day they canceled this and say "I want to disappoint a lot of fans, ax this game!"?

And is it something that will have an impact on any of their other games? Losing MM Universe sucks, but ultimately it isn't terribly upsetting. But if they take away Legends 3 for "various circumstances" next, I am going to be pissed off like Eric Cartman:

Does anyone feel that half of these comments should be deleted? Or is that me being crazy again? =P

I'm still at a loss of why Megaman was cancelled, and if LotR North is the MMO or something else is. A little info would be nice.

I do like my comment though about the multi-million dollar lawsuit. Too bad I forgot it, and I'm too lazy to look for it again. ^^;

@21 Or maybe he's one of the few people who actually appreciates what the news section is here for? I kind of gave a laugh when the word brown is in your username.

Jeez, dude. Ya really need to learn when to show respect and when to be a douche. And this ain't just referring to you. This is referring to all the douchebags that posted here, that I don't have the time or energy to list all the numbers.

When somebody does something for ya, it's proper to say thank you. Did your parents ever teach ya that?

Common courtesy, it is.

Thanks Richard. Although I tend to read the posts individually when I'm interested, I know many people who appreciate this, so don't let the people who decide that being jerks is fun get you down.

All those thumbs down. It's really no big deal as you they are right. Appreciate the effort. But actually by checking the newsd through here we add extra click to the whole process. All the news are clearly visible on main page and with dates, so not sure why so many are thumbing down?

@33: By checking it on an RSS feed or whatever, you add an extra click to the whole process (opening the feed). By going into the archive to find articles that fell off the front page, you add an extra click to the whole process (clicking the archive link). No matter what, you're adding an extra click. Having this post is just a nice third option for people who don't use RSS feeds and might not have even know there was stuff in the archive they might have missed on a busy news day.

All the thumbs down are for how rude the comments were. Some of these people are acting like Rich kicked their puppies or something, and it's just rather uncalled for.
Oh, and some of them were related to one guy posting "FIRST" and then coming back to spam over and over.

@#34 True that. Still if you look at dates you know what's what. Not flaming and appreciate the effort. But thumbs down is only because there is plenty of bored kids out there that have nothing better to do, which my post above proves (thumbed down for nothing - which I usually get anyway:-))

@35: Plus, it not like thumbs up/down really mean anything. It all based on popularity. Hell, I'm just going it for sport now. Delicious tears in the form of negative just make my day. It's just plain amazing how butthurt people get on the internet. In the end, this whole comment rating thing is just absurd as proven time and time again. It is only adding to the chaos by fueling fires, not deterring them. Keep the report feature, but just lose the ratings.

And mjc, stop thumbing yourself up. It's giving ME an "extra click" just to vote you back down where you belong, with the 0s. But I'll go ahead and get you started on mine, since you love thumbing me down with every post I make.

@36: Oh, and for the record, my RSS feed loads on my home page, which I usually keep up with at least twice a day (usually A LOT more) which allows me never to miss an update unless the YouTube video subscriptions get in the way.

And like I said, I never read 95% of it because I couldn't care less.

Post, and then negative vote myself...
