Daily News - 13th January 2012 - Darkness 2 Demo Next Week, Minecraft And SW:TOR Updates and Kid Icarus' Daft Peripheral

Look Forward To Ripping Dudes In Half In The Darkness 2 Demo

It's fair to say that a good demo can make you buy a game, it's happened to me in the past a few times (most notably with Skate 2, Just Cause 2 and Bulletstorm) and it'll happene again in the future I'm sure, the real question is, will it happen with the Darkness 2? The demo's getting a somewhat staggered release, with Xbox Live Gold members getting the demo a week ahead of everyone else. The demo will be available to Gold members on January 17th, and regular Xbox live members, PS3 owners and over Steam on January 24th. If you've not seen any of the trailers for the game then I suggest you do so, as it looks like alot of fun!

It's gonna be brutal, but the good kind

Minecraft And Old Republic Receiving Big Updates

I'll be honest, neither of these are games I give a fuck about, but I know alot of people do so let's get to it! Minecraft's 1.1 update is available now and adds enchantments, tweaks and recipes... which I have to assume are things to do with Minecraft. Old Republic's update comes out on Tuesday, and adds some extra high-level instances, or "Flashpoints". Arguably Old Republic has the bigger update, but in the grand scheme of things, it's like measuring who's poo is smellier: Sure, somebody wins, but at the end of the day, you're both just smelling shits.

I'll be honest, Minecraft Star Destroyer is pretty epic

In Japan, Your Kid Icarus: Uprising Will Come With A 3DS Presentation Stand!

In what has to be the most bewildering things I've read in a while, reports have been coming out that the Japanese version of Kid Icarus: Uprising will come with a stand for your 3DS, so you don't have to hold it. A portable you don't have to hold? It's a million dollar idea! How did somebody not think this up sooner?!?

Are you seeing this??? What the shit?!?
