A little bit of a boring day today as there were a whole bunch of games announced but not a whole lot changed. There were some sweet deals announced for PSN users and what will likely be one of the last TDU 2 trailers before the game's launch. Lets dive on in.


Now that Test Drive Unlimited 2 is scantly over two weeks away from release, Atari has released what will likely be one of the last trailers to hit the net before the game goes to store shelves.  This latest trailer shows some of the car customization options that will be available when the game launches.

The second game in the Test Drive Unlimited series will be released on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.

Making a game takes hours and hours of hard work, even for the simplest of creations.  However, Konami's giving you the opportunity to get your artwork into the next Silent Hill release. 

The "Be Buried In Silent Hill!" contest tasks players with creating concept art for headstones to be featured in the graveyard of Silent Hill: Downpour.  All headstones must be original submissions and cannot reflect any previous characters from the franchise.  In order to enter, all you need to do is visit the Silent Hill Facebook Graveyard Tab and submit your artwork.

Submissions close by February 10th, at which point the top six submissions will be posted to the Facebook front page for voting.  On February 16th the top three winners will be revealed.

Downpour will be released in 2011 on PS3 and Xbox 360.

XSEED announced today that YS Chronicles I & II, the remastered take on the first two adventures of Adol Christin, has gone gold.  The remake won't just be a rehash of the 30 year old original.  XSEED and Nihon Falcom have worked together to redo the artwork, translations, and music.



When you head for the world of Esteria on February 22nd there will be two options.  The game can be purchased on a  UMD which also contains a bonus soundtrack CD for those who want to reminisce about the game's 80s roots.  If you don't care for older music or discs, you can just get a digital copy of the game and save yourself $5 dollars also.

Rude Gameware announced today that they are close to releasing the second version of their Fierce Laser Gaming Mouse.  The Fierce Laser Gaming Mouse V2 will feature a 5000 DPI laser and other "proprietary, performance enhancing components" that the company claims will increase performance over 60%.

Gamers will be able to see just how much of a change the engineers have made come February when the Fierce Laser Gaming Mouse V2 is released.
