Darksiders II no longer has a mystery release date: it is now confirmed as a Wii U launch title. The game will more or less be a port of the original game, with the added ability to use the Wii U GamePad as a map and to access inventory, as well as use the gyroscope to evade attacks and steer in select locations.
If you haven't picked up Darksiders II yet, you should think about picking up this version, as it comes with the first DLC (Argul's Tomb), as well as all of the pre-order bonuses, and the promise of "five hours of extra content." Whether or not this new version will fix the glitches or frame-rate issues in the 360/PS3/PC versions is still up in the air though.

This first "behind the scenes" video for Platinum's Legend of Korra game isn't great, but fans of Platinum's intense action fare might be happy to hear that there will be a high difficulty level just for them.

Like Max, I didn't know what to make of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor but taking a guarded approach has paid off -- the reviews are in and they're overwhelmingly positive. Nice surprise!
