It’s Friday. It’s weekend time. This starts now. OH DEAR GOD! What the hell?

  • Ubisoft released a trailer for mini-game collection We Dare. This has literally been the talk of all UK games journalists this morning on Twitter. See why through here.
  • And already, someone’s made a parody to it. What from? Dead Island. Brilliant. That’s on GoNintendo.
  • A new community map pack has been released for the PC version of Team Fortress 2. More on the TF2 blog.
  • Amazon posted this 3DS ad on its website. It’s a bit puzzling. And acted. Watch it on GoNintendo.
  • Steam’s added a screenshot feature for games that allows you to take screens from most games in its library. You can share them on the Steam community page, Twitter and Facebook. More on Big Download.
  • ToeJam and Earl creator Greg Johnson has launched a new Facebook game called Deko-Deko Mail. Eurogamer chatted to Johnson about the game. Get it here.
  • Charlaine Harris, the author of the Sookie Stackhouse series that brought about TV show True Blood, has turned to games. More at Jezebel.
  • For those interested, there’s Samurai Warriors Chronicles screens on D’Toid.
  • The newest update for Final Fantasy XIV, V1.16, will include world quests. More news on that over at Massively.
