Dev kits for Microsoft Hololens are expected to begin shipping in late March, with a price point of $3,000 USD. And no that's not an extra 0 due to a typo, the units will be pretty expensive. But hey, Microsoft also debuted a look at Young Conker, an augmented reality AR platform game that utilises specific capabilities of the device.
Which basically boils down to two things, Valve firing host James "2GD" Harding after a day or so of questionable commentary, and the fact that a lot people had problems streaming the event without continuous dropouts and all-round poor quality. And to cap it all off Valve head honcho Gabe "Where's Half Life 3!" Newell took to Reddit, not to apologise to fans or take any sort of responsibility, but to vent. Like some sort of pipe. Or, valve.
If you played The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess as either a launch title for the Nintendo Wii or as a swan song for the Nintendo GameCube you probably had a great time. A howl of a tile. Ahem. Notably, The Twilight Princess featured a similar art-style to the popular Ocarina of Time, in that it was perceived as more mature than the previous entry The Wind Waker. With the HD re-release due later this week, Nintendo has released a new trailer which also serves as a highlight reel for the entire game.
At a recent conference in Monaco some of the early environment and weather design was showcased from the recently crowdfunded Shenmue 3. But be warned the footage was captured from the audience, so it's a little hard to make out what it really looks like. Also the screenshots, taken from an update from the official Kickstarter page, are pretty small. But hey, late '90s style tiny screens and low res video is probably the ideal way to hype up a new Shenmue game.
Nintendo has announced the latest entries in its popular portable illegal street monster fighting simulator, Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, which are due for release later this year for the 3DS.

Available March 8, and lining up with the release of the Warner Bros. film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the iconic Batmobile is headed to Rocket League. Which version of the Batmobile? Well, the one from the new movie dummy! Sorry, probably shouldn't have snapped at you like that. It's just that getting to see Bats face off against Supes in a couple of weeks is a little stressful. Anyway, there's a trailer revealing the new vehicle.
Which, if you're a fan, is all you really need to know. It's a new trailer for the highly anticipated Dark Souls III, which is due for release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on April 12, 2016. Which, if you look at a calendar isn't all that far away. And when you subtract sleep, showers, eating, and binge watching the new season of hilarious sitcom Full House (called Fuller House) on Netflix, it'll be here in no time at all.
Starting in March, and then working backwards Capcom is set to re-release just about every Resident Evil game ever made on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. For fans of the series this is definitely good news, and it's a great way to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the series. With the early titles already available, a competitive shooter in the pipeline, and a complete remake of Resident Evil 2 in development, it's probably time to invest in an Umbrella. Because it's raining Resident Evil games! And they're the bad dudes.

Ubisoft has released a new trailer for The Division showcasing the PC version running at 60fps with all the sorts of graphical bells and whistles that justify spending a small fortune on a water-cooled tower of silicon and microchips. And predictably, it looks pretty amazing. In other Division news, Ubisoft has also release a small browser-based interactive thingy called Collapse, which lets you be patient zero in a global epidemic.
