New Dead Island Screenshots

Three new Dead Island screenshots have surfaced on the net.  There's nothing too spectacular here, but they are definitely slightly interesting.  Dead Island is scheduled for release on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.  The game is basically an open-world survival-horror game that I'm definitely excited about.  The game doesn't hit shelves until the end of 2011.  Click on the images for a larger view!

NCAA Football 12 "First Look" Screens

I've been "over" Madden for several years now, but I still look forward to NCAA Football every year.  NCAA Football 12 will be released on July 8, 2011 and so far it looks pretty good.  Two new screenshots were just released showing off the new game.  One screenshot compares NCAA Football 11 to NCAA Football 12 and there's actually a big difference.  The greass in NCAA Football 12 actually looks like real grass.  If these screenshots say anything, we're probably looking at an improved game this year.  NCAA Football 12 will also be headed to PC for the first time in many years.

EA Hints at Nintendo Wii 2...

We all know that Wii sales figures have been drastically down over the past year and that publishers are focusing their efforts on the 360 and PS3.  With that in mind, it should be fairly obvious that Nintendo's next move will be to release a Wii 2 (which should be in HD).  I personally believe that Nintendo will focus their efforts on the 3DS in the near future and we will probably not see a Wii 2 until 2012 or 2013.

"Speaking to IndustryGamers, EA Games label head Frank Gibeau hinted at the fact that Nintendo knows the situation and is working on another platform. "When you look at Nintendo, for a while there, it was all about the Wii being the biggest entertainment platform ever and capturing the mass market, and it faded away. Now, they’re coming back with a second act. I think they know that. They’re very self-aware as an organization and a very powerful brand," he said."
