Q.U.B.E. is a tasty in-between-games snack for gamers who enjoy a challenge. No, I wouldn’t pay $50 for it, but the devs never asked for it – and now, at $7.50, I can’t recommend it more highly.
Oh, and be the first person following me on Twitter to send reply to my account @SelectStartM to win yourself a copy of Q.U.B.E. I have one to give out, so be quick about it!
Bohemia Interactive, developers of the renowned milsim Arma 2, have announced an upcoming DLC for the recently-revitalised-due-to-DayZ shooter, entitled “Army of the Czech Republic”. The DLC will heavily focus on the Czech army, including realistic units, weapons, and terrains, as well as a new single-player campaign.

Hey, regardless of what console it’s on, I’ll be buying as many copies as I can get my grubby hands on, and thanking the gaming gods that Nintendo have decided to embrace the Gamecube franchises that they skipped over with the Wii.
EA today unveiled five “game-changing” and “revolutionary” innovations that will make FIFA 13 the greatest and most realistic football game ever developed (according to them, of course). But hey, FIFA 12 currently holds that title, so you’d expect 13 to snatch it anyway, wouldn’t you?
