Thursday Shorts, Overnight Edition – New Magicka maps, Beyonce game cancelled, Borderlands proposal
It can’t all be doom, gloom, and the PSN being hacked. Sometimes it’s tiny, cheerful (and occasionally stupid) nuggets of news.
Also: Have an unrelated piece of street art. The Internet only houses so many SFW images of short shorts.
- The writer for the upcoming Marvel MMO will be announced this week.
- Here’s the Mad Men credits done Portal 2 style.
- Gearbox helped one Borderlands fan propose to his girlfriend with an unique video. Adorable.
- A Swedish retailer has already got the “Wii 2″ up for pre-order. Eager beavers; they’d put it up before Ninty went official.
- There’s a new mod out for Total War: Shogun 2 which makes everything more awesome, apparently, and it’s called DarthMod, so it’s probably true.
- YouTube has launched a movie rental service.
- Did you know Beyonce was making a game? Nor did we, but now she’s stopped, at the cost of 70 jobs. Yikes.
- Magicka’s Marshlands and Caverns challenge maps are now available on Steam.
- Riot has delayed an upcoming League of Legends map, Magma Chamber.
- Trackmania 2 will go into closed beta in July, and Nadeo is teasing something called “ManiaWorld”.
