Aniplex to release Oreimo as a limited edition Blu-Ray!

Yes, also known by its full name, Ore no imouto ga konnani kawaii wake ga nai, will get a US release date close to it's Japanese date. You get all 12 episodes + the OAVs on four Blu-Rays on February 27th for a staggering MSRP of $329.98! While that does seem astronomical for the US, that seems to be about average for Japan.

Confirmed: Abrams to direct Star Wars Episode VII!

It was a late night confirmation from Disney, but JJ Abrams will direct the new Star Wars Movie!!! In my opinion, Abrams did a FANTASTIC job rebooting Star Trek, and MI:Ghost Protocol was a great movie as well, so I am VERY excited for this! During the Hobbit we were treated to a 9 minute Star Trek: Into Darkness trailer which also looked awesome, so what can Abrams bring to Star Wars? I say everything Lucas failed to bring to the prequels! Read the PR via Aint It Cool News

Nintendo announces Shin-Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem for the Wii U

Today Nintendo  released a video trailer announcing a new game titled Shin-Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem for the Wii U gaming system. This will mark the first time ever, that these two powerful franchises have ever crossed paths. The video offers little in the way of direction for the game, save it is being presented by Atlus . The Fire Emblem series is widely known for its epic Tactical Strategy game play, fused with solid stories, and RPG elements abound. The Shin-Megami Tensei series span several RPG sub-genres, over the course of multitude of series, and a F2P MMO, as well. Three of the more recent releases for the Shin-Megami family were Shin-Megami Tensei : Devil Survivor (For the Nintendo DS), Shin-Megami Tensei : Devil Survivor : Overclocked (For the Nintendo 3DS), and Shin-Megami Tensei : Devil Survivor 2 (For the Nintendo DS). Each of these three were Tactical based Strategy/RPG games, as well. In the wake of this we will make sure to update, as soon as we catch any wo

THQ butchered at auction!

Well, today marks the end of an era as THQ is no more. So who got what today? Well here is what's known. Sega picked up Relic and the Company of Heroes IP for $26.6 million. Ubisoft grabbed THQ Montreal with the 1666 and Underdog IPs for an insanely low 2.5 million. Ubi also grabbed the South Park: The stick of Truth for $3.265 million. Take-Two grabbed a single IP, Metamorphosis, for $10.894 million. Knock Media Group (Deep Silver)  picked up Volition with Saints Row for $22.3 million. They also snagged the Metro license, including 2033 and 2034 for $5.877 million. Crytek is now the home for Home front at a cost of $544,218? Obviously no one wanted Homefront. Hopefully this can be good for gamers. No word how support for current games will or if they will continue. We'll updatre this as more info surfaces.

Shorty after Nintendo Power magazine announced to the world that it was  ceasing publication  , another movement had been announced to said world.

That labor of love, and magazine is Nintendo Force Magazine .
