Here is your short-based stuff for Wednesday. Go nuts.

  • Mass Effect 2 for PS3 is coming to Japan. EA is to release it in the country on June 23.
  • Mother creator Shigesato Itoi has said he doesn’t want to do Mother 4. He said that in a magazine interview which featured Nintendo president Satoru Iwata.
  • Valve boss Gabe Newell has said his favourite three games are a Star Trek game he played back in high school, the original DOOM and Super Mario 64.
  • It was reported last week that Pi Studios had closed down. Not so. “Reports of our death are greatly exaggerated,” boss Robert Erwin told IGN.
  • There’s a new 16 second clip of Resident Evil: The Mercenaries on Andriasang.
