Tuesday Shorts, morning edition – RIFT security app, APB beta update, Streets of Rage fan game shut down

Tuesday, 12th April 2011 08:36 GMT By Brenna Hillier

This round of little gaming nibbles contains both “stuff” and “nonsense”, and sometimes both at the same time. It’s the future, you know.

  • Big Download has a trailer for PC indie strategy Anomaly Warzone Earth. Save the world, maybe kill some things.
  • After ongoing security scares, Trion Worlds has released an iOS app to secure your RIFT account. More deets on Massively.
  • The rights to the Gothic franchise may have returned to original developer Piranha Bytes.
  • Sega has smacked the hammer down on a Streets of Rage remake put together by fans.
  • The other two entries in the DS trilogy beginning with Duke Nukem: Critical Mass have not been shelved. Thanks, Go Nintendo.
  • APB: Reloaded will stay in closed beta for now, but a new round of invites is on the way.
  • Warner Bros. has got some pro cosplayers in for upcoming Mortal Kombat tournaments in Europe, and what they lack in clothing they make up for with boobs. Sigh.
  • CVG reports Nintendo is bringing Namco Bandai’s DS RPG Solatorobo: Red the Hunter to Europe this summer.
  • Dawn of War II: Retribution has been patched.

    On a related note, I don’t get why people are annoyed at the lack of a new Streets of Rage game when the Yakuza franchise exists. I mean, excluding the co-op element, it practically IS Streets Of Rage in 3D.

    @2 no, just no.

    Luckily a lot of people managed to get the download of Streets of Rage Remake so it’s still floating about on the internet. For all the hard work Bomber games have put into SoRR I hope they can work something out with sega as the game is great and has TONS of re-playability.
