Treyarch has released the 1.6 patch for Call of Duty: World at War, bringing another bunch of fixes and maps to the multiplayer side of the shooter.
Headlining the free update are three new multiplayer maps: Battery, Breach and Revolution. Fans of the previous Nazi zombie maps will also be pleased to find a new undead encounter in Der Riese, set in a "secret Nazi research facility." Teleporters and the weapon-upgrading "Pack A Punch" machine are involved.
Left 4 Dead 2 has been refused classification by Australia's Office of Film and Literature Classification, effectively banning Valve's co-op shooter sequel from sale in Oz. Documents rustled up by News.com.au reveal gore is behind the decision, listing all the blood, guts and violence making the game "Unsuitable for a minor to see or play."
"The game contains realistic, frenetic and unrelenting violence which is inflicted upon "the Infected" who are living humans infected with a rabies-like virus that causes them to act violently... it is the use of the "melee" weapons such as the crowbar, axe, chainsaw and Samurai sword which inflict the most damage. These close in attacks cause copious amounts of blood spray and splatter, decapitations and limb dismemberment as well as locational damage where contact is made to the enemy which may reveal skeletal bits and gore. Projectile shots to infected humans can cause abdominal wounds which can reveal innards or even cause intestines to spill from the wounds."

Need something to eat?" asks a mass mailing to members of the PlayStation Network, explaining that at long last "you can jump over to your PlayStation 3 browser between epic battles and high-speed races to get a hot delicious pizza delivered to your door... all this while never having to leave the comfort of your PS3 system."
In an overlooked announcement just now making the rounds, LucasArts has revealed that the dead shall walk again in Sony Online Entertainment's MMORPG Star Wars: Galaxies, with a series of quests inspired by the upcoming Star Wars novel 'Death Troopers.' "Players will be able to join together to fight horrific new enemies with a frightening affliction," LucasArts explains, with the book's blurb detailing "The dead are rising: soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry." Death Troopers the novel arrives on October 13, while Death Troopers the quest line was then slated for a vague fall release. LucasArts has vowed to continuing supporting Galaxies after the launch of BioWare's new Star Wars MMO The Old Republic.
Along with many Shackers, the staff here has been hoping for a theme park campaign for some time. In fact, we even asked Valve writer Chet Faliszek about it at E3. "Are you guys taking pictures from our office or something?" he said in response, laughing. "Um...
The decision to charge for the Xbox 360 version of the upcoming "Crash Course" Left 4 Dead DLC was ultimately made by Microsoft, according to Valve's Chet Faliszek. "We own our platform, Steam. Microsoft owns their platform. They wanted to make sure there's an economy of value there," said Faliszek to Eurogamer. The first content release for Left 4 Dead, which included a new Survival mode and extra Versus maps, was free on both platforms.
