After the disappointing Resident Evil 6 crapped all over the hopes of longtime Resident Evil fans last fall, there's now a spot of bright light with the news that the Nintendo 3DS title Resident Evil: Revelations will be landing on the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U and PC on May 21. Revelations was a much more old-school Resident Evil experience but felt hamstrung without proper gamepad control, so this could be the best of both worlds.
Kickstarting a Wildman
Gas Powered Games, the studio behind Supreme Commander and the Dungeon Siege series, is pinning its hopes to one last kick(starter) at the can in with a role-playing/strategy game hybrid called Wildman.

If you're a fan of Taylor or his games, check it out here.
Skyrim getting bigger on PS3
PlayStation 3 gamers who've been dying to become a vampire -- there's a pun in there somewhere - or just custom-build their own homes in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be able to do so next month with the arrival of the Dragonborn, Dawnguard and Hearthfire add-ons for the PS3 version of the epic role-playing game. The extras have been available for some time on the Xbox 360, but will launch at a discounted price on the PlayStation Network. If that's any consolation.
