Hey! You! We got some news about video games. Pay attention!
First, it looks like Battlefield 3 won't be on Steam, and the special edition of Mass Effect 3 has robot dogs or something. The Riddler makes his big debut, sort of, in Batman: Arkham City. Cliffy B has an opinion about that new Nintendo thing. Ms. Splosion Man is easily worth your ten bucks, and it's out on Wednesday. Dead Island is probably worth pre-ordering, but not on Amazon if you like cool bonus things. Saints Row The Third is definitely worth pre-ordering because you'll get an octopus gun.
Finally, the fine folks over at CM4 were good enough to send over a few of their Catalyst 3DS cases, and we'll happily give them away. Just make a picture (drawing, Photoshop, oil painting, whatever) of the worst possible way a 3DS could get destroyed and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Go nuts. Be sure to include your name/address. You've got until this Sunday night at midnight (PST) to submit, and we'll announce the winners on Monday's show.
