It was recently announced that the "Aliens vs Predator" reboot for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3, will in fact no longer be banned in Australia, and will appear on shelves uncut, contrary to previous speculation. It was also announced that it will carry an MA15+ rating, prohibiting anyone under the age of 15 from purchasing the game. Although this is seen as a victory for the gaming community, it has left some people wondering whether there should be a steeper rating category than MA15+, which is currently the country's highest rating before refusing to sell a game altogether.

One of the major laments of "Left 4 Dead 2" (mostly before its release) that was that besides a very far-away cameo, the survivors from the original game were absent from the sequel. Come the spring, that problem will be taken care of as Valve has announced that the first DLC for the critically acclaimed sequel to the critically acclaimed first person Zombie shootout will include the original iconic survivors and some other goodies as well:

"Dead Space" was just about the scariest gaming experience experience of the past five years. When I completed the game, it left me with the same awestruck feeling that a great horror movie would. As it turns out, this is no coincidence. As anticipation for "Dead Space 2" builds, the dev team sat down with Game Informer to share some of their most prominent horror influences, which are actually quite diverse.

“Left 4 Dead 2” is just under three weeks away from hitting stores and so far all the signs are pointing to the sequel being even better than the original. So as the calendar gets closer to November 14th we’re sure to see more and more media surrounding the game popping up. The first of which you can view below. It’s the new TV spot for the game and I can only imagine it will be running during the World Series. Or as my fellow Met fans and I like to call it, the first sign of the Apocalypse. It’s a sports reference on a horror site, we’re making it happen today! Batter up kids!

In addition to the melee weapons and the new infected classes and types, fans of "Left 4 Dead" were also promised a new mode (or two?) in the sequel. The infected cat was let out of the bag today with the announcement of "Scavenge" mode, which works a bit like a one sided version of the Capture the Flag concept that's so popular in multiplayer games.

The sun is always going to rise and people are always going to love killing Nazis. It’s a fact, you can look it up. Because of this constant we now have another "Wolfenstein" game coming out tomorrow. In celebration Activision has taken the time to push out one more trailer before the game finally hits shelves that you can view below. The game looks to be chock full of everything we’ve grown to expect from a "Wolfenstein" title. Big guns, creepy undead Nazis and tons of explosions. Should be a good time!

Presumably to muffle the cries of their colicky fanbase over the abrupt announcement and impending release of "Left 4 Dead 2", Valve will be releasing a new campaign for the original game in September. However, unlike the last pack of DLC that included new multiplayer maps and an entirely new online mode, XBOX360 users are going to have to pony up the dough for the new "Crash Course" campaign.

It’s been months since I’ve turned on my Xbox 360 but from the looks of the newly released behind the scenes clip from “Wolfenstein” I think I might be picking up the controller again. Activision gives a pretty good overview of the game and how it’s evolved, and most importantly explains to fans how they’ve tried to stay true to the original games. “Wolfenstein” comes out for the Xbox 360, PC, and Playstation 3 on August 4th.
