There have been many rumors going around about the possibility of another Borderland game, and when Gearbox Studio Head Randy Pitchford was asked, his response was pretty straight forward. “We are currently not working on Borderlands 3″. That is true, however what he didn’t mention, or comment on that another studio (2K Austrailia) was working on another Borderlands title.

Bethesda has announced a very limited “Panzerhund Edition” to their upcoming Wolfenstein: The New Order. The very limited collectors pack will include an 8-inch hand-painted Panzerhund statue and base, as well as a “classified folder” containing documents like maps, case files, letters, and an X-ray for protagonist B.J. Blazkowicz.

The bundle also packs in a set of 14 full-color postcards stemming from The New Order’s alternate 1960s, as well as three embroidered patches and a replica dog tag. Lastly, the premium bundle includes an “exclusive” steelbook for the game. The “Panzerhund Edition” will sell for $100 at select retailers.

One thing you will notice missing from the Collectors Edition is . . . The Game. Yes, that means that you have to purchase the game separately. This edition will release along side the game on May 20th for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC.

“Keep your preorder at your favorite retailer and we’ll send you these goodies separately,” Bethesda said. “This way we can ship these boxes worldwide and you’re not stuck waiting for your game to come along with an oversized, expensively shipped box.”

Decapre Announced For Ultra Street Fighter IV

Capcom has announced today the fifth and final new character to join the roster for Ultra Street Fighter IV.

When you look at Decapre, she is a cross of Cammy and Vega. Decapre is a former “doll” bodyguard to M. Bison. Many of Decapre’s fighting moves are charged based moves and features fast, fluid movements of Vega. Decapre joins the previously announced quartet of Rolento, Hugo. Poison and Elena.

Many fans have been upset, slamming Capcom for re-skinning an already existing character. Even though this character has never been playable in a Street Fight game, there is an eerie resemblance to Cammy.

Ultra Street Fighter IV will also feature the new Edition Select Mode, which will allow players to select balance variants of characters from all previous versions of Street Fighter.

Ultra Street Fighter IV will release in August for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
