Borderlands 2: Mr Torgue's Campaign Of Carnage DLC Confirmed

Gearbox has confirmed that the next piece of Borderlands 2 DLC will indeed be the rumoured Mr. Torgue's Campaign Of Carnage. There he is, look. Gosh.

And that's all we know thus far (release date and pricing TBA). Torgue is one of Borderlands 2's weapon manufacturers, whose weapons deal ruinous explosive damage, so this ought to be good for a laugh.

Skyrim: Dragonborn Gets First Screenshots & Details

After the debut trailer went live last week, Skyrim's latest expansion has revealed more its secrets in some new screenshots. Dragonborn will take players to the frozen island of Solstheim (which many of us will remember from Morrowind: Bloodmoon), empowering them with new shouts, weapons, armour and mounts as they take on the first Dovakiin.

With Rieklings and Netch making a welcome return, amongst other new enemies, we hope that Dragonborn will evoke some of the more alien and unpredictable design elements that made Morrowind such a unique RPG experience.

By the looks of things (and as we discussed in our hands-on preview), Crysis 3 is set to get back to basics: wide and expansive environments that evoke the larger stages and greater tactical depth of the original game. This six minutes of gameplay footage shows off the size of one of the singleplayer levels, along with the strategic opportunities it offers.

Treyarch: "We Are Not Bad People, Just Outnumbered"

Call Of Duty has had a chequered history on the PS3, and Black Ops II doesn't want to be the exception that proves the rule. Reports of faulty DLC codes and online freezing problems are currently flooding the forums, though Activision are apparently on the case.

Spin the Bottle Promises "Innocent Fun For Innocent Kids"

KnapNok Games, Party games, Spin the Bottle, Wii U, WTF?

KnapNok Games have confused us. First of all, it turns out that they're releasing a party game titled Spin the Bottle for Wii U; secondly, they're promising "innocent fun for innocent kids", which seems a little weird to us considering the name of the game; but that's apparently because, thirdly, apparently the emphasis is on "collaborative micro challenges" rather than wanton making out.

Additionally, the trailer reminds us more of Noby Noby Boy than getting hammered and using the evidence to create a game that's a thinly veiled excuse for a bit of a snog.

According to Polygon (thanks for the tip James!), Spin the Bottle will "require player coordination, trust, body contact, dancing and flexibility". That sounds an awful lot like the pre-requisites for a horizontal tango to us, but that can't be right. This is one for the kids.

*facepalm*

However, it does allow us to post an almost completely gratuitous Peep Show excerpt, so that's fine then. Spin the Bottle is set for release next year.

Here at Dealspwn know we have a few people interested in the world of sound design (if you haven’t already, be sure to check out regular Kopite211’s impressive take on the BioShock intro) but in the latest WildStar Wednesday update, Carbine Studios have decided to showcase an example of their work. Greg Meader, who is the Senior Sound Designer on upcoming MMORPG WildStar, lets us know about his previous work, his inspirations, and then guides us through the process for providing the audio for one of the enemies on Nexus: The Skug Queen.

PSN Store Update: Portal On The Move, Black Ops Declassified

This week's PlayStation Store update finally brings us Counter-Strike: GO.

Only joking.

Instead, we have the new expansion for Portal 2, In Motion, that features a motion-controlled campaign compatible with the PlayStation Move. PS Plus members can get a 30% discount. New games include Of Orcs And Men and a complete Saints Row package, alongside Black Ops: Declassified for the PS Vita. Early reports suggest that you should avoid Nihilistic's portable Call Of Duty title like the plague, and for the sake of full disclosure, review code hasn't been made available to us (danger!).

Either way, as always, we have the lean update and prices after the break - thanks to the latest post on the PlayStation Blog.

Report: Widespread Origin Account Hacking In Progress

Myriad Origin customers are reporting that their accounts have been hacked over the last week, receiving emails confirming that their username and/or passwords have been successfully changed. They've been unable to log in to their accounts afterwards. [via NeoGAF]

Worryingly, dates of birth and security questions are also being changed, meaning that restoring account access and proving their own identity is proving to be difficult in many cases. EA urge affected consumers to contact their support centre.

The Secret World Issue 4 Trailer: Big Trouble In The Big Apple

Funcom's latest update for The Secret World includes a New York raid event, some London-based theatrics and great big chainsaws. Oh my. Issue 4 will roll out later this month, as evidenced by this new trailer.

A rockey release window and controversial subscription pricing model lead to a seriously slow start for Funcom's MMO despite its impressive quality. More details are available in Carl's epic The Secret World review.

Ubisoft: Rayman Delayed Beyond Good & Evil 2

Ubisoft have found another excuse for why we're not playing Beyond Good & Evil 2 yet, this time blaming Rayman Origins and Legends for monopolising Michel Ancel's time. Which actually sounds fair enough to us, frankly.

At least it's still in the works for next-gen consoles.
