According to Nintendo's UK marketing chief, a key part of their Wii U Christmas push is targeting mums who don't really know what the console is yet. Dads get it, though, apparently.Click here to read more...
First Squids, now Clams. Call Of Duty: Ghosts is going big on shellfish, which can snare opponents in their vice-like grip or grilled up with lemon juice as a tempting distraction mid-battle.
Actually, seafood puns aren't nearly as funny the second time around. Call Of Duty: Ghosts will let you create and join clans. Obviously. Here's a trailer.
To celebrate their 30th anniversary, Capcom has unleashed a monster sale on Steam. Their entire library, from Dead Rising and Devil May Cry to Street Fighter and Fairy Bloom Freesia, has been reduced by 50-75%, making for some big fat savings.
Out on November 8th - that is if The Hut delivers on time. Thanks to RudiBryson @ HUKD!
The latest Humble Weekly Sale is all about Focus Home Interactive.

Two pieces of GTA V news for you today; at least, one piece of news and a big fat rumour. A new GTA Online patch is now live on PS3 and Xbox 360, which apparently fixes the accidental character overwrite issue and other problems, which will come as great news to anyone enjoying the fun yet buggy multiplayer sandbox.
According to some new claims from anonymous sources, however, PC owners may also be able to get in on the action as early as next year.Click here to read more...
The Wii U GamePad may be a surprisingly nifty bit of kit, but its 2.5-5 hour battery life is on the embarrassing side of hopeless. Thankfully Nintendo have released their high capacity version in the UK - available from Amazon - which increases active play time to 5-8 hours. It will run you £25.
The 2550mAh battery was previously announced for Japan back in May, and comes just in time for getting stuck into Wind Waker again.
The Wii U hasn't had a great year, to put it very mildly. Despite a smattering of absolutely sensational first-party software, Nintendo's machine has stumbled and struggled to attract customers thanks to a near-total dearth of third party titles, mixed messages and a release slate that's more gaps than games. With two next-gen consoles releasing next month, along with plenty of multi-platform titles for other platforms, it's tempting to suggest that the Wii U is going to have a lean old Yuletide. Standing outside the foreclosed orphanage, perhaps, clutching its frostbitten teddy bear.
But then again, miracles happen at Christmas.
We tend to see consoles as pieces of gaming hardware, a means to the end of playing fantastic games. That's our perspective as gamers, that's our context. However, in December, they transform into something else entirely, at least for the majority of consumers. Consoles stop being consoles... and become presents. Once you shift your context and change your perspective, barging through the crowds with bags in hand or racing to meet the last postage deadline, things are very different.

If you fancy the idea of standing in a queue on the high street as bitter winter winds lash at your coat tails, you're in luck, because over 300 GAME stores will be running midnight launches for this holiday season's biggest franchise entries.
Gosh, I'm not selling it very well. There's a real sense of camaraderie you can only get from a midnight launch, so if you want more details, GAME has posted all the details in a handy roundup with participating stores and times. The festivities start on November 1st with the simultaneous release of Assassin's Creed IV and Battlefield 4. Just in case you can't make it, though, we'll keep our eyes peeled for the latest online deals, alongside the legendary HUKD community.
PC gaming is dead!
Well, erm, no it isn't. However, it does appear that worldwide PC sales are on the decline as the idea of dedicated personal computers or laptops become less appealing compared to tablets.Click here to read more...
You shouldn't fix what ain't broken, and PopCap are definitely taking that mantra to heart with Peggle 2. As you can see by way of these three new trailers, it's very much business as usual, while two new masters provide fairly subtle new abilities.
Which is probably going to be absolutely fine, because Peggle is the cool soothing prescription for the most extreme of fevers. We've got the three videos for the Xbox One timed-exclusive below.Click here to read more...
The Xbox One may support third-party mice and keyboards post-launch, but likely only on a game-by-game basis. According to Microsoft PR man Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb, introducing mice to an unsuspecting controller-centric ecosystem could be utterly devastating, and spark a "religious debate" that they neither want or need right now.Click here to read more...
Sony Computer Entertainment president Andrew House believes that most PS4 launch customers aren't the least bit interested in the PlayStation Camera peripheral, and that making it optional has let them hit the "magic price" compared to the pricey Xbox One and mandatory Kinect sensor.
As such, don't expect many games to use it until Sony "adjust" their strategy down the line.Click here to read more...
Nintendo are looking to get in on the action this Christmas by undercutting their pricey next-gen rivals, helped by three new official software bundles. None of which are actually as attractive as ShopTo's recent deals, mind you, but we've got the details below.Click here to read more...
ShopTo's slightly more expensive Wii U bundle pack ups the ante game-wise, including Pikmin 3, Rayman Legends, Zelda: Wind Waker HD, Lego City Undercover and Nintendo Land. Though it's starting to encroach into next-gen console pricing territory, the value here is outstanding.
Many thanks - again - to SuperbJames @ HUKD!
If you've been on the fence about buying a Wii U, ShopTo's latest bundle is utterly ridiculous. You'll get a premium console pack and four games, including the recently-released Zelda: The Wind Waker HD.
It's selling fast, so best get your skates on. Thanks to SuperbJames @ HUKD, who lives up to his name!
