Potential good look at the new female and male Pokemon trainers for Pokemon X&Y. Also, 4 new Pokemon to absorb… I’m digging the Panda. A lot of small detailed tidbits are in the new Corocoro magazine, like the region will be named Karos and be based on France.
On top of that, looks like you can VERY minimally [according to the photo] customize your character? At the very least there will be default players to roll around as.
There is a small chance these may be unconfirmed, will update as I find out.

ChelseaHeckaGaming: On Another Level With Chelsea: Most Anticipated Games of 2013 -
Maybe I should rename the title to the most anticipated of right now, because this is surely due to change at any given moment with announced titles at the yearly gaming events. These games are maybe, the most obvious choices possible and I can’t help it. I have named a…
I’ve had an extremely amazing time playing multiple games this year, which means I think I had way too many games to juggle at certain points. It’s admittedly hard to whittle it down to only five amazing games, but it has to be done. Bear in mind, this felt like an internal struggle as I think I may have left my heart with more than just the five titles I’ll announce.
Aside from the huge success of the Uncharted series, the team at Naughty Dog has been hard at work for the past two years creating a completely new world for their upcoming PS3 exclusive, The Last of Us.
During a recent interview with Game Informer, director Bruce Straley and creative director Neil Druckmann discuss the game’s two main characters Joel and Ellie, and the post-apocalyptic world that they must survive in. And from what is known so far, this will be a world that will truly distinguish itself among other post-apocalyptic offerings, full of wildlife among the desolate city streets.
The game’s protagonist, Joel is living day by day as a black market contraband dealer, emotionally distraught by the events that caused his life to change so drastically. He receives a mission to smuggle 14-year old Ellie out of the quarantine zone she was born in and into the unknown to find a safe haven away from military control. Despite his own apprehension, Joel becomes obligated to keep Ellie safe as they explore the ruins of civilization together. Much of the story is still a mystery but this video divulges enough to make me want to know more.

I always seem to get a confused look from someone when I mention playing a charming little claymation point-and-click adventure by the name of Neverhood back in the 90’s. Of course, the game did only come out for PC, and only sold roughly 42,000 copies before being discontinued. So okay, maybe it makes sense some of you didn’t play it.
But as luck would have it, the game may see a port on a yet to be determined mobile device. Then perhaps your lifeless stares will instead be replaced with a shared joy of an underrated game.
So far it’s up in the air whether we will see a re-release at all. Developer Bazinga is currently in negotiations for exclusive rights to the game, and considering possible releases for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Android phones, Android tablets, and Windows Phones.
Atlus’s upcoming romance/puzzle/platform game Catherine will be getting a North American demo for PSN and XBLA July 12.
Some of you may have already attempted to traverse Vincent’s nightmares in the japanese demo, most likely finding it more confusing then the game already is — being in another language and all. But maybe when the english demo comes out next week, we’ll all be able to make sense of it all.
Then again, probably not.
You know you’re a Final Fantasy VII fanboy when you lose your marbles over the very existence of a Sephiroth sackboy costume. Especially if you’ve been waiting on pins and needles since one was teased three years ago at Tokyo Game Show 2008.
Well according to Playstation Blog, a full set of Final Fantasy VII costume packs should hit the Playstation Store July 13. The pack will contain the sacky likeness of Cloud, Aeris, Tifa, and yes of course Sephiroth, for $1.99 each. But if you purchase them all together for $5.99, you’ll receive a bonus Vincent costume.
So now you can create and share the game the way it was supposed to be played, with Aeris alive and having Cloud’s babies.

DICE’s highly anticipated military fps Battlefield 3 has somehow managed to piss off a bunch of fans with EA’s announcement of their planned downloadable content, which for now, will only be made available to customers who pre-order the limited edition game.
What’s stirring up the outrage is the “Physical Warfare” pack that comes with the Back to the Karkland expansion pack. Customers must pre-order the limited edition of BF3 through select retailers in order to get both parts of the DLC package, which boycotting gamers say will “create an unfair advantage” by giving those customers exclusive guns and ammunition.
More importantly, it forces otherwise patient consumers to purchase the game right away if they want the extra content. Understandably this has fans of the game upset, and refusing to buy the game altogether.
The boycott which was organized on Reddit, has reached well over a thousand comments and is getting major attention from notable gaming news sites. Members who organized the boycott make it clear that the DLC plans were organized by EA, and not DICE. And are hoping their message will cause EA to “wake up and change their decision.”
Far from the momentum Nintendo originally predicted the 3DS would have, after 13 weeks on the market, their latest handheld has finally reached one million units sold in it’s home country of Japan.
To put that into perspective for you, the original DS reached one million sales in just four weeks. The DS Lite and DSi both took eight weeks. You could say it’s doing better then the DSi XL which took twenty-five weeks. But that would be like making fun of the kid who gets picked last in gym. And that’s just plain mean.
At a financial briefing held in April, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata attributed disappointing 3DS sales to the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan in March. “Of course, it is obvious that the great earthquake largely affected the sales, but I should not blame this situation just on the impact of the earthquake,” Iwata said. “There are other challenges that have shown up; therefore, we have revised our scenario for diffusion and are making efforts to get the popularity of Nintendo 3DS back on track for the upcoming summer season.”
Hopefully with the recent release of the eShop, upcoming Netflix support, and some strong titles announced and planned for this year, Nintendo can turn it around this summer.
