Gaming is for Girls: “Fallout 3” introduces “The Pitt”


Welcome to “The Pitt” in “Fallout 3”

Post-apocalyptic Pittsburgh never looked so good. If you’re looking for a little more “Fallout 3” action (where the heck do you find the time?), then “The Pitt” DLC is due out next month and will feature new weaponry — in the form of a spinning “AutoAxe” — and a new scenario. It’s expected to cost $800 MSP for the Xbox 360 version, although it will also be released for PC gamers.

Time trials for “Mirror’s Edge” arrive

Heads up, parkour fans: There’s new DLC (downloadable content) for “Mirror’s Edge” on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in the form of new time trials. Players will be challenged to achieve the fastest times possible on nine races across seven all-new and totally redesigned Time Trial maps. No guns, no cops and no city: These are true aesthetics, agility and flow that will challenge any runner. This special DLC pack is available for $800 MSP. Happy leaping.

Finally wireless “SingStar” microphones

Looks like Sony has once more taken note of what Microsoft has brought to the table and followed suit with the release of wireless mics “for SingStar.” According to Sony, 99 percent of the wireless mic testers said it was “excellent” or “very good.” The new mics will be launched a month or so prior to the new “SingStar Pop Edition” (March 20 Euro release for the mics, April for the game.)

“American McGee’s Alice” is back

Electronic Arts and Spicy Horse have signed a publishing deal for an all-new title based on EA’s 2000 classic, “American McGee’s Alice.” Many gamers have fond memories of the game (including Gay Girls Who Game’s Tracy who loved it). It will be released for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

“This new project is a dream come true for me and the fans who have kept the Alice flame alive,” said American McGee, senior creative director at Spicy Horse. “EA gave us creative latitude and support on the original game, which resulted in something beautiful and daring. This trip through the looking glass promises to be even more exciting.”

No word yet on a release date.
