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.
