Return of the Weekly Roundup!

Greetings once again from franky and blue! We’re back!

Were any of you a fan of the subscription service for Call of Duty? Well, it seems like EA was and is looking to add something like it to one of their own game series. Which series, you ask? BattlefieldBattlefield 3, to be exact. Rumor is it’ll be called “Battlefield Premium.” We’ll find out at E3 soon enough if this pans out.

More After the jump.

If you were looking to raid some tombs this year with Lara, we have some bad news. The new Tomb Raider has been delayed until 2013. Here’s a comment from Darrell Gallagher that explains the hold up:

“When Crystal Dynamics first set out to reboot the Tomb Raider franchise, there were two goals that we were extremely passionate about. The first was to create a modern Tomb Raider game that would surprise and excite gamers. The second was to make this the best game of our careers, something we would be really proud to be a part of. We truly believe that we have something very special on our hands and we can’t wait to share it with you.

Our priority now is to make sure we fully deliver the very highest quality game. In order to do this, we have decided to move the game’s release date by a few months, from Fall 2012 to the first quarter of 2013.

We’re doing things that are completely new to Tomb Raider in this game and the additional development time will allow us to put the finishing touches into the game and polish it to a level that you deserve. We believe this is the right choice and I guarantee it will be worth the wait. The game is looking amazing and we can’t wait to show it to everyone at E3 in a few weeks.”

We’re hoping most of you have played Arkham City, thus knowing how it ends. In a few weeks we finally get to see the aftermath in a bit of DLC called “Harley Quinn’s Revenge.” Harley’s coming out guns-a-blazing in her hatchet-girl look and gunning for the B-Man. The DLC drops on the 29th, but we’re guessing a lot of you already knew that.

Signing off until next time,

P.S. Pick up Max Payne, it’s out now.
