CM Punk is the Best in the World. He’s also a man who is from and who loves Chicago, so I could only imagine he would enjoy the band as well. In addition to CM Punk‘s theme song “Cult of Personality” by Living Colour being in Rock Band and Rock Band Blitz, there is now a new three pack from his hometown band Chicago.

Get the details on that and the Rock Band Network releases after the jump!

Imagine God of War, if you will, rethought as a 2D action-platformer decked out in a gorgeous ancient-pottery visual veneer.

Now, envisage that the developers behind such an idea are Alien Trap; the folks behind the great retro-inspired platformer Capsized.

Welcome then, to Apothean; a hyper-violent platforming combative take on the myths and legends of Ancient Greece.

Oh and did I mention it all looks extremely pretty too?

Catch the trailer after the break.

What’s the matter? Didn’t get your rhythm action fill with Theatrhythm? Don’t have a 3DS to take advantage of it? That’s okay, because Square-Enix has you covered!

Symphonica, a new rhythm action title from the fine people from the Land of the Rising Sun, is now available for multiple iOS platforms, including all iterations of the iPad, iPhone 3GS and up, and iPod Touch iterations 3rd generation and newer. Featuring stunning classical music including Dvorak’s New World Symphony and Beethoven’s Fifth, offers blissful action to the many greats that inspired Nobuo Uematsu himself.

The prologue through Chapter 3 are available free of charge, but every subsequent chapter will cost you money. Each chapter is available for $2.99 individually, in packs of four for $6.99 each set, or as an entire package for $14.99 including bonus content.

This is getting ridiculous now.

With every new entry in the Halo franchise comes yet another live-action trailer whose purpose (other than being jaw-slackingly awesome) is to seemingly taunt us about just how far away a big-screen take on Master Chief’s adventure is.  Just make the thing already.

Anyway, the newest live action trailer holds some distinction over the rest as it was produced by one David Fincher; he of Fight Club, Se7en and The Social Network fame.

We’ve got it waiting for you too just over yonder.

Sleeping Dogs, the very awesome titles from United Front Games, is currently the Weekend Deal on Steam.

You can pick up the title for a literal hair under $25 and grab all the DLC for just under $20. If you’re only interested in discounted DLC, the packs on sale are: Retro Triad Pack, Red Envelope Pack, Top Dog Silver Pack, Top Dog Gold Pack, and the High Roller Pack. And, as always, the High Resolution Texture Pack is available for free.

After an extended period in closed and open beta testing phases, Sony Online Entertainment has at last confirmed the release date for their forthcoming free-to-play Planetside sequel.

Planetside 2 will release on November 20th this year.

Given just how compellingly brilliant the beta is, I’d say that would be a date to put in your diary.

Oh and there’s more after break.  Not just words, but pretty moving pictures too.
