This week I was rather happy with the release of the Mafia II demo and the announcement that there will be a new installment in the BioShock series.

If you haven’t played the Mafia II demo, I would suggest getting it here for the PC. Alternatively, you can download it through XBL or PSN to your console. And why not ‘like’ Mafia II on Facebook, and pick up Mafia I while your at it.

Just scroll down a little and look to the right to see a little gray box that says “Download the Demo.”

I was in for a shock when I saw the new teaser for BioShock: Infinite, the newest title in the BioShock series. Apparently, it is going to take place in the sky, in a city called ‘Columbia,’ according to CVG. It is expected to be released in late 2012. Of course, I’ll keep everyone who visits up to date on everything BioShock: Infinite.

A little background on the story:

“You, playing as ex-private detective Booker DeWitt, are hired to track down a woman who disappeared during the Colombia incident. The girl, Elizabeth, holds a secret; she’s hugely powerful and lies at the center of whatever is going on aboard the floating city.”

For more on the story, go here.

A preview of Columbia.

If you’ve heard about Sony’s recent idea to make a movie based off the PC game series, RollerCoaster Tycoon, then you probably had the same reaction I did. WTF. Sony obtained the license earlier this week and they plan to bring the game to the silver screen. I’m not sure how exactly they are going to base a movie off the game, but they claim it is going to be “”live-action/CGI hybrid.”” Personally, if and when this movie comes out, I am most likely not going to see this. Although I think that RCT is a fun game, but I think it should remain just that..a game. Comments?
