Here’s how the news cycle has gone for gamers who are into the FX biker gang show Sons of Anarchy: There’s gonna be a game based on the show! (Yay!) It’s gonna be a junky advergame that plays on browsers (Boo!) Just kidding, plans for the crappy game have been dumped. Now there’s a real game coming. (Yay!)
When a superhero flick rakes in $207 million in its first weekend, you can bet game studios are filled with executives smacking themselves in the forehead for deciding not to have made a tie-in video game. Somehow, there was no cheap, slapped-together Avengers game to take advantage of the runoff from the box office avalanche, but Ubisoft assures us that there will be a game.
Our dance cards for later this year are starting to fill up. And by “dance,” we mean “sit on our rumps until 3 a.m. playing games.” The Assassin’s Creed-wannabe Dishonored comes out Oct. 9, followed Nov. 20 by the latest in the outrageous hired-gun sim Hitman series, titled Hitman: Absolution.
GameStop and digital PC game distributor Steam have always given each other the stink eye. The retailer even tried to swipe some of Steam’s customers by buying one of Valve’s rivals, Impulse, but has apparently realized that it’s easier to join Valve rather than fight against it.
If you’re thinking about renting Max Payne 3 on Xbox 360, you won’t want to get it from Redbox. The company says it’s only renting the first disc in the two-disc set, meaning you’ll be stuck with nowhere to go once you work your way halfway through the campaign.
Let’s get one thing out of the way — Just because we subscribe to HBO doesn’t mean we’re made of money.

If you study the right subjects, know the right people and are good enough at what you do, you can make a healthy living just predicting what you think others will do. Such is the charmed life of those who work at Wedbush Securities, which has peaked into the crystal ball and forecasted Grand Theft Auto V hitting shelves in October.
Rumors are flying around about Microsoft’s Xbox 360 follow-up, code-named Durango. After wacky suggestions that it will refuse to play used games and lack a disc drive, the latest zinger is that Microsoft could include a controller that responds to your tender squeezes.
In case you haven’t noticed, there’s nowhere on an iPhone to plug in an arcade-style fighting stick. That means we’re stuck with touch controls that try to replicate arcade setups, which is about as easy as playing handball while wearing oven mitts.
