Payday 2 Announced By 505 Games

Posted on March 13, 2013 by Joshua Rust

505 Games and Overkill Software have announced that a sequel to Payday: The Heist is on the way in form of Payday 2.  CVG got a chance to preview the game and had this to say about it:

“Payday 2 provides a unique spin on co-op first-person shooting, and we love the idea of becoming a career criminal with friends, working our way up from lowly convenience store stick-ups to mass-scale bank robberies.

“The first game was excellent, but with the guiding hand of Chronicles of Riddick developers Starbreeze, which recently purchased Overkill, this sequel could be even better.”

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition Coming To Retail

Posted on March 13, 2013 by Joshua Rust

Minecraft Wii U

I guess after selling over 5 million copies over Xbox Live Arcade, it’s fair to say that Minecraft is a huge success on the Xbox 360 and deserves a retail copy. I know that there are people out there who for one reason or another have not had a chance to experience what Minecraft has to offer due to data limit or no internet connection at all.

4J Studios will cater to those people who can’t or don’t want to purchase it over Xbox Live Arcade starting on April 30th when Minecraft hits retail stores. There will be no difference from the downloadable counterpart of the game, but it will have all of the previous updates that the downloadable version has plus the upcoming “ninth update” which will add additional features as well. As expected, the retail version will receive all future updates also.

Who has been holding off for this to hit retail and is excited to see it finally makes it’s way onto disc?
