Doom Pulled from XBLA, Will be Back Soon

One thing that's become increasingly apparent in today's age of digital downloads - they can disappear at anytime.  Most times this happens because of expiring contracts between content providers.  Such is the case with DOOM on Xbox Live Arcade.  The game was originally released before Zenimax Media actually owned id Software.Once that contract expired there was no place for your money to go when purchased, so the game has been pulled.

Wii Remote Plus Pack-In Game FlingSmash Has Co-Op

It was only a matter of time, we suppose.  Last year's Wii Sports Resort came with the Motion Plus accessory, making the Wii waggle even more accurate.  Now, we have a new version of Nintendo's controller, putting the two together, and it's rather appropriately named the Wii Remote Plus.  As with perennial sales powerhouse Wii Play, a controller/game bundle is going to be available, and that game is called FlingSmash.  It's a right-to-left side scroller, where a little round fellow named Zip is controlled by aiming the Wii Remote Plus.  As you can see in the above screenshot, the Wiimote representation in the lower corner updates in real time.  To make Zip move, you just fling the controller when the Wiimote is pointed the right direction.

Kirby's Epic Yarn Co-Op Review

When it comes to classic gaming, Kirby is an icon. He hails from the days of two action buttons; the days when real substance was achieved through 8-bit graphics and MIDI music. Can his newest adventure win our hearts without resorting to the third dimension? I think you already know the answer.

Red Dead Redemption Update Eliminates Grief

Rest easy, cowpokes - a new title update is live for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Red Dead Redemption. Among other things, this update adds a new Free Roam mode to the playlist: Friendly Free Roam.  What exactly is so "friendly" about the new mode? Well, the main draw is that player-to-player damage is completely eliminated. Yes, we know all too well how to properly deal with griefers...but that's downright unneighborly.
