Tuesday Newsday: Sunset Overdrive, Xbox One for $399, Pokémon, Snyder's Batman & H.R. Giger
by Max Scoville

It’s been quite a busy week of news, and here’s Max to shout moistly about it.

Gamers who are short a hundred bucks got some great news this morning with the announcement of an Xbox One sans Kinect, for a somewhat reasonable $399, coming June 9th. Sunset Overdrive has been revealed properly, and hot snacks, it looks like a good time. Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire are getting the 3DS treatment, Never Alone looks really lovely, and a new Unreal Tournament could be quite a lot of fun, especially for free. Dying Light and the console version of Elder Scrolls Online are being delayed. We get our first look at Zak Snyder’s Batman and Batmobile, and H.R. Giger has gone to that great big derelict spacecraft in the sky.

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire coming this fall
by Dale North

Oh my damn. Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire will launch worldwide in November 2014, Nintendo announced this morning. For your 3DS (or 2DS). For your soul. For your spirit.

These are redone versions of GBA classics Ruby and Sapphire, of course.

The super rumbly trailer doesn't say or show much, but it makes you feel good. It also makes me feel better about the financial results that came out this morning
