Daily News - 14th June 2011 - Bungie, Activision, Nintendo, Free Steam MMOs and Rage Delayed!!!

Hey guys!!!

So it's been far, FAR too long since I looked for news and didn't have a seizure from the unbelievable amount of the stuff, but today is a brand new day! The gaming industry has woken up and recovered. And so, without further ado, I present to you.... NEWS!!!

Bungie Release IOS App

The app, (which you can download right now if you have an appropriately awesome phone) so far only really displays your Halo: Reach stats, but as Bungie draw further and further away from the Halo universe (It's 343's problem now!) the question is, what kind of content are they gonna start putting on there? Well thankfully Eric Osborne (Bungie Community Content Writer) gives us a few cryptic sentences:

"It’s our first, small step into the mobile world. The first of many, it really is just a beginning--our first, super cute baby step. We already have adult-type plans to keep updating Mobile with new features and enhancements in the months and years to come."

There's a Bungie Day coming up (June 23rd to July 7th... yep, Bungie Day is 2 weeks long....) where they'll hopefully give us more details, aswell as Bungie Aerospace (god knows what that is) and they're alleged partnership with Activision (said to be called Destiny). There's alot to look forward to for Bungie fans! Unfortunately I'm not a Bungie fan. Sad face.

He's assuming the "hit-in-the-balls" positionActivision And Time Magazine Team Up

The two have joined forces to publish an issue of the historic magazine with a special Modern warfare 3 front cover. The front cover will be a poster and will be used as a pre-order initiative at Gamestops in America. I think it look pretty epic. I mean, we don't get Time magazine over here but it's influence is known wordwide, and any time video games break into the mass media like this can only be a good thing.

Here's the poster. I like it!Steam Now Supports Free To Play MMOs!

Do you have a PC or laptop? Then you're in luck! Because now you can play some MMOs for free!!! If you have a computer of some kind and you're reading this site then chances are you have Steam, so this can only be good news for you (and me!). The 5 (Yes, FIVE) MMOs available are Sega's Sprial Knights, Cryptics Champions Online, Hi-Rez Studio's Global Agenda, Perfect World's Forsaken World, and NHN's Alliance Of Valliant Arms. Of all these games the only 2 I've heard okay things about are Champions Online and Global Agenda, though that's not to say the others are bad, besides, the beauty of free games is that you get to try them all out anyway!

Champions Online - Free MMO with superheroes. What's not to like?!?Rage Release Pushed Back By 4 Weeks

It will now come out on October 4th... I guess that's it!

That's not Nemesis, I assure you this is a Rage screenshot. ASSURE YOU.Millions Of Release Dates For Wii, DS and 3DS

I hate when people make fun of Halo. What is there to make fun of? I don't get it, it's one of the greatest video games of all time. The story is deep, the multi-player is way awesome.

The only problem Nordic is that I disagree on both of those points, hence my Halo bashing ^^
