Midweek News – Guild Wars swapping Realms, Some DLC, Some Trailers and our Song of the Week!

Interesting news seem to be a little slow lately so I have decided (seeing as I missed last Sunday) to include MMGaming’s Song of the Week in this news post.

Indie Games – Release date city

A few different Indie Games have been given release dates in the very near future, so if any of the following games are oens you are looking forward to then you can mark down some dates in your diary:

Missing Link Coming Soon

The DLC for Deus Ex called The Missing Link has had it’s release date announced by Eidos. You can expect to see it hitting the shelves of XBL, PS3 and PC on the 18th of October for the grand price of 1200 Microsoft points or about £12… if I’m doing my maths right…

Of course that isn’t the only thing hitting us on the 18th! Good luck competing against the Hero Gotham deserves!
