Guild Wars 2 will not cause Guild Wars to shut down, because the original is still cost effective.
THQ is bringing playable goodies to the EG Expo in September.
Namco’s first quarter for FY12 was good. Shipped titles did well, too.

A third installment in Port Royale series has been announced, and pirate aficionados everywhere are rejoicing.
Gamers have purchased $1 million worth of Humble Bundle 3 units.

See you tomorrow.
