Trouble to all fans awaiting this tittle, Atlus has announced that Arcana Hearts will be slightly held back due to some brief problems and other minor difficulties. It said the problem will be fixed quickly and the game will now ship out on April 1oth rather than today.

Hopefully no other problems will arise and everyone will have the game in stock by Friday so all die hard fans will be able to play this by the weekend.

CryTek's CryENGINE to PS3 will be best

Harald Seeley, Engine Business Manager for CryTek, a PC based company responsible for first person shooter Far Cry, said,"there is no doubt that porting our engine to the PlayStation 3 is the more challenging of our two ongoing conversion projects [Xbox 360 and PS3]." However, that isn't necessarily a bad thing: "that works to our advantage in the end. We feel certain we have the ability to get the most that is possible out of that platform, and therefore PS3 games which run on our engine in the future will definitely stand significantly apart from other games that don't."

Information about Gears of Wars 2

Marcus and Dom are back, but so are several new characters like Chairman Prescott, Tai Kaliso, and Maria Santiago (Dom's "lost love"); the Locust also have some new additions like the chanting "Kantus" who can focus those chants into concentrated sonic blasts, and resurrect fallen Locust warriors.

New functionality includes upgrades to Unreal Engine 3 , a "SHUT UP" button to skip the yacking and get back to the shooting of the bug people, "drop in and drop out co-op" with different difficulty settings for different players, chainsaw duels, refined cover mechanics that should make it "harder to get hit while protected," a fourth even-more-casual Casual mode.

No word on a release date or anything else, but all this alone makes part 2 a game you want to play if you liked Gears of War.
