Tecmo-Koei have just released a trailer for Dead or Alive 5 Plus for the Playstation Vita.

A port of Dead or Alive 5 that was released for home consoles last year, the PS Vita edition of the game boasts a first-person view, touch-screen based moves and that same blistering 60 FPS speed that the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions have.

We’ve got the trailer for you after the break, but really, it shows more of the various girls lounging around in suggestive positions than showcasing them actually engaging in any fistic pursuits.

The last day of Halo 2 PC Multiplayer will be February 15th. For the 20 people who still play it, I’m not making this number up, it’s really 20 people, this is sad news. Though they can still multiplayer over LAN.

We salute you 20 brave souls who doggedly stuck to an eight year old game. May flights of Covenant angels wing thee to thy rest.

Mike Pondsmith, known for his work on Mekton, Dungeons & Dragons, and the original Cyberpunk from 1988, shows his dark, film noir influences and creative processes with the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 from CD Projekt RED.

I wouldn’t chalk this up to the best deal that Sony‘s had with the recent line of even slimmer PlayStation 3s, but if you look at how good PlayStation Plus is, it might be the best deal available over time for the price.

With a brand new console color, in what’s called a “Classic White,” this iteration of the Super Slim PS3 comes packed away with a 500 GB hard drive and a year of Sony’s online service all for $299.99.

In the first bit of DLC coming for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, supposedly coming this month, we have Kat from Gravity Rush and Emmett Graves from Starhawak, both previously announced as additional fighters.

Trailers for each one under the cut!

Just Add Water, or JAW as they are known, are the developer which has been hammering away on games based on the Oddworld Inhabitants franchise of games.

Indeed, right this very second, they are working mercilessly, tirelessly on Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee New ‘n’ Tasty; a brand new HD re-imagining of the very first Oddworld title.

Still despite this, they are keen to tap into the fan base to see what you guys would want to see from the next Oddworld game via a survey located on the official Oddworld website.

The things you can vote for include:

At the time of writing, Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus HD is top of people’s wants and considering how well New ‘n’ Tasty is coming along, I can’t imagine Abe’s Exoddus in HD being anything less than great.

Though the hugely epic sounding “The Brutal Ballad of Fangus Klot” sounds mighty enticing too.

Go on, stop being a miserable sod and cast your vote.

In addition to the Luigi’s Mansion and Monster Hunter dates being revealed today, Nintendo also announced that LEGO City Undercover is hitting the Wii U on March 18th, my birthday. Now that you know that date, I expect all of our readers to shower me with riches.

In addition to that, LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins will be hitting the Nintendo 3DS on April 21st. This title will be a prequel to the Wii U title and follows Chase McCain as a rookie cop.

I’m pretty excited to see a firm launch date for LEGO City Undercover. It’s been one of the big titles I’ve been waiting for when it comes to the Wii U. The fact that it’s hitting on my birthday makes it so much sweeter, not to mention being followed up the next day by Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate!

Nintendo in all their wisdom and general awesomeness have today confirmed that their 3DS Luigi’s Mansion follow-up, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, has secured itself a North American release date of March 24th.

A European release date has yet to be confirmed, but honestly, I don’t think it will be one too far removed from our American cousins.

Stay tuned!
