In this edition of Weekend Recap, Bioware teases a new game, Batman: Arkham City PC gets delayed, and Capcom loses faith in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.

Someone at Microsoft tripped over a cable and made the Mass Effect 3 beta live for a short time. A few gamers downloaded the early build and uploaded screenshots and video to the Internet. The most interesting leak involved details of three single-player campaign modes: story (less combat), action (less story), and RPG (perfect mix of story and combat).


I should consider getting new wallpapers.
PC gamers will have the best-looking version of Batman: Arkham City, but they’ll have to wait until November 22 to play it. Calendar Man needs to stop messing with us.

Yippee ki-yay, motherf....
BioWare released a screenshot in Game Informer magazine that detailed their latest project. The untitled game has Fallout’s wasteland environments, Brink-like character design, and MotorStorm’s vehicular mayhem. Yuck.

Wasn't Raccoon City destroyed 12 years ago?
Capcom estimated that Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City would sell 2.5 million copies this year, but recent financial problems made them drop that figure to 2 million. By contrast, Resident Evil 5 sold over 5 million copies in its first three months.

"Eat my shorts, Leatherhead!"
According to Australian website XBLA Fans,The Simpsons Arcade Game will soon arrive on consoles. Backbone Entertainment (X-Men, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) will adapt this 1991 Konami arcade classic. 20 years later, the game is still a blast in 4-player co-op.
