A busy week before the holidays begin in earnest, and lots of killer new videos from the likes of UNCHARTED 3, MotorStorm Apocalypse, Resistance 3, LittleBigPlanet 2, Killzone 3, and even PixelJunk Shooter 2. For me, I think the highlight was getting new details on the “definitive” version of Mass Effect 2 and learning that the game will feature improved textures thanks to the Mass Effect 3 engine, plus all ME2 DLC included on the disc in addition to gameplay tuning and refinements. And it’s coming out soon — really soon. January’s going to be a riot!
