Bethesda Can’t Make Any More Pip-Boy Collector’s Editions

The Pip-Boy, a plastic accessory that turns your smartphone into a second screen for Fallout 4, has been very hard to come by. According to Bethesda’s VP of Marketing, Pete Hines, the company simply can’t make any more of the accessory.

“We made a s**tload of Pip-Boys, and we went back and made more, and went back and made more. I keep seeing stuff about, ‘Oh, you only did a few thousand.” No–we did a ton of these things. I think we did more of these things than we did for any collector’s edition we’ve ever done, ever.”

Is ‘Angry Birds 2′ Secretly Already Out in Canada Under a Different Name?

It looks like Angry Birds 2 might already be out in a soft launch in Canada under the title Angry Birds Under Pigstruction. From Pocket Gamer:

It’s a poster advertising Angry Birds 2, and makes reference to a chance of “golden duck showers”.

The only references to golden ducks in previous Angry Birds games is a level named after them, and the new Golden Duck spell in Angry Birds Under Pigstruction, which showers the level in, you guessed it, golden ducks.

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th Anniversary Edition Review

The HD conversion of this classic may not hold up all that well. Sounds like this is a release only if taking a trip down memory lane is the goal.

As a historical piece, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th Anniversary Edition has some benefits but it’s a harsh reminder that sometimes you’re better off sticking with the memories than going back to them.

Out Now: Kingdom Clicker – the latest auto RPG/clicker game

Kingdom Clicker, the latest in the auto RPG / clicker-typer genre was released last week. This one comes with a twist — PvP battles.

In Kingdom Clicker the usual clicking is done to gather coins, which are used to buy buildings and power-ups that auto-generate coins. It’s a well worn mechanic and implemented very well here. The graphics are good, the game plays well. But the interesting new thing here is that once a certain size kingdom is built, players can battle other players to attempt to steal part of their bank.

I’ve been playing this for a few days and find myself drawn back to it a few times per day. My only concern with this game is that same for many, I wish the battle were more intuitive — they are basically just a dice roll. That said, it’s a fun game, well done, and worth a try.

Paper Train: Rush Review – “just another perfectly playable endless runner”

Pocket Gamer takes a look at Paper Train: Rush and is bored with the sameness giving it a 6/10.

But it never goes above or beyond the shape we’ve all become familiar with. It’s solid, it looks good, and everything it tries to do it does with aplomb. But it doesn’t really try to do all that much.

Vote for ‘Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II’ to Come to iOS

Aspyr Media wants to bring Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II to mobile. To gauge the interest of the gaming public, they’ve put up a page where you can enter your email address and your mobile platform of choice. From Touch Arcade:

After the surprising news that KOTOR 2got an update a decade since the last one, Aspyr Media continues to surprise by asking mobile gamers to show their interest in a possible iOS or Android port. If you don’t know KOTOR and KOTOR 2, these two games, especially the first one, are considered by many the top Star Wars games ever. There’s, of course, a debate over which one is the best, with most gamers preferring Bioware’s KOTOR because it simply was more fun than KOTOR 2since it was a more traditional story of good versus evil with clear heroes and villains. Obsidian’s KOTOR 2, on the other hand, had a more complex view of humanity and its graces and flaws. Unfortuntely, it felt like a rush job when it came out in 2005, with plenty of technical issues, content missing, and a very abrupt ending.

Hearthstone Getting Grand Tournament Expansion

Blizzard promised big Hearthstone news and here it is: The Grand Tournament expansion is coming next month.

The theme of the set follows all the different factions of Warcraft lore who were invited to a tournament which, of course, is a silly tournament and not anything near as serious as the Argent Tournament.

‘Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon’ Launches August 6

Tiger Style Games has announced a release date for its upcoming sequel Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon. It’s August 6, and to make the announcement even more exciting, they’ve released a brand new trailer. Watch it above. From Touch Arcade:

Man, I’ll tell you what, some things are just worth waiting for. Tiger Style originally teased the new Spider in the fall of 2013, and we got a hands-on demo of a seemingly pretty complete version several months later at GDC 2014. In fact, Tiger Style had hoped to have the game out before the end of 2014, but were committed to the “it’s done when it’s done” mentality. Obviously 2014 came and went, and most recently we went hands-on with Spider again this past March at GDC 2015, where it was looking better than ever. We even gave it a special nod as one of our picks for Best of GDC 2015.

‘Minecraft’ Movie to Be Directed by ‘Always Sunny’ Actor

Fans of the highly adults-only comedy show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia might be surprised to hear who’s been announced to direct the upcoming Minecraft movie. It’s Rob McElhenney, known better by fans of the show as Mac. From Touch Arcade:

He has plenty of production and writing experience from the long-running FX comedy, of course, but he has yet to direct a movie for himself. He’s working on a movie called Figment for Legendary Pictures, but it’s possible that’s on hiatus, or this takes precendence, or he’s working on this next. Regardless, this seems promising since It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is such a good show.

Upcoming ‘Minecraft: Pocket Edition’ Beta Delayed

The plan had been for Mojang to release a beta for a new version of Minecraft: Pocket Edition on July 29. Unfortunately, sometimes plans change. From Touch Arcade:

In case you don’t remember, the upcoming update is supposed to coincide with the release of Windows 10 and Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta and will add a billion new features. According to Tommasso, while they could start the beta on the 29th, that would mean no Enchanting, Music, or Controller support, which would be a disappointment to many. The new goal is August, hopefully.
