News Bits

While sometimes it feels like the world stops for E3, reality has a way of truckin' right along. In fact, today had some pretty news stories. Most notable was the news that Curt Schilling's 38 Studios has filed for bankruptcy -- and might be facing an investigation from the FBI and Rhode Island State Police. This could get ugly for the baseball great. In other bad news, Activision confirmed that it would not be holding its Call of Duty XP fan convention this year.

In better news, reports surfaced that Overkill Entertainment -- the studio behind Payday -- is working on a Left 4 Dead prequel. The 3DS is also getting an interesting title, 5th Cell's Scribblenauts Unlimited. Finally, the charitable (and awesome) Humble Indie Bundle (which packages a host of the best independent games to be sold for charity) added three huge titles.

Oh, and one more thing. WE SCREWED UP -- Tomb Raider is not coming to Wii U. Sorry about that.
