At first glance Shelter looks kind of cuddly; you play a badger mother looking after her cubs in some pleasant looking greenery. Pid developer Might & Delight is billing its next game as anything but. As this early footage shows, you’ll have to hunt other animals for food, and avoid becoming prey yourself. That inferno at the end isn’t too cuddly either.
Someone slipped up and released a thirty second trailer for the new Call of Duty: Ghosts. We can't show you the trailer, but we can tell you that at the end, the new logo for Xbox we showed earlier seems to be real.
Furthermore, there is no other console name listed. Since Call of Duty: Ghosts is going to be a cross-generation game, Activision may have opted to include a generic bumper rather than one with the system name.
We'll know more in less than an hour.

The first ZombiU title might not have lived up to everyone's expectations, but for an at-the-time new system in the Wii U, you have to appreciate that developer Ubisoft Montpellier was at least trying. Hopefully some of the groundwork and lessons learned from the first game can carry over to what fans hope will be a sequel to the dual-screen survival horror title. Ubisoft Montpellier creative director Jean-Philippe Caro says that work has begun on a prototype for ZombiU 2.
Caro recently tweeted in response to a fan's question: "The team is working hard
on a prototype. It´s too soon to tell you more."
While the prospect of another ZombiU game will certainly hearten fans, Caro later to tweeted caution, explaining that prototypes are a natural part of the design process and don't always lead to a finished game. "… our job is to work on
prototypes that will become or not video games. ," he said.
For more on the first ZombiU (which the above screen is from), take a look at Tim's review.

A former Zynga product manager by the name of Wendy Lee is suing her previous employers over discrepancies in the firm's policies surrounding stock sales. Following the mobile and social game publisher's initial public offering on December 16, 2011, employees and other existing shareholders were prohibited from selling the shares they already held for 165 days.
According to the filing, top executives were cleared to sell off early. When those employees (current and former) who weren't included in the waiver were finally able to trade, share value had dropped nearly 50%. Lee is seeking damages on behalf of those individuals who were locked out due to the IPO.
When BioShock Infinite launches on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 tomorrow, players can choose to unlock the game’s difficult ’1999 Mode’ early by using a modern variation of the classic Konami code.
By default, Infinite only has three available difficulty settings: Easy, medium and hard, with the 1999 Mode – which tunes Irrational’s latest game to a difficulty best suited for those looking for a classic shooter experience akin to System Shock 2‘s campaign – hidden away until the game is complete. If players decide they want an immediate challenge, using the Konami code will allow them to unlock it at any point.

Valve has announced the Early Access section to Steam’s Library, which allow gamers to play pre-release games, and offer feedback.
Early Access allows the Steam community to play select titles during development before their release. This offers the community a chance to experience the development process firsthand. Their feedback becomes valuable in the development process. Games will update quickly and allow developers to respond directly to bug reports and feedback. Community members can also interact with each other and chat about the games.
"A lot of games are already operating as ongoing services that grow and evolve with the involvement of customers and the community," says Sean Pollman of Badland Studio. "Greenlight helped us raise awareness for Kinetic Void, and now Steam Early Access will let us continue the development of our game while gathering crucial feedback, input and support from the steam Community."
Some titles that are already coming to Steam Early Access are Kinetic Void, Gear Up, and Arma 3. For a full list of upcoming Early Access titles, visit Steam’s Early Access website.
Valve’s Steam platform has initiated a new “Early Access” program, which allows players to purchase and immediately begin playing select games that are still in development. The full list of titles currently available under the initiative include Arma 3 and StarForge, among others, though the selection will be increasing “over time,” according to the new service’s FAQ.
Mechanically, purchases through Early Access will function the same as buying a full, completed game, with the only difference being that, you know, the game isn’t finished yet. Theoretically, free-to-play games could also become part of Early Access, in which case there would be no purchase price for participation in the pre-launch play time.
