Pikachu is cute and all, but when it comes to battling Pokémon it doesn’t get much better than Mewtwo. Players of Pokémon Black and White can witness this power first-hand starting February 12.
Earlier this year Polish developer CD Projekt Red got into a legal scuffle with Namco Bandai over the distribution rights to the Xbox 360 port of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. Now a French court has made it quite clear: THQ is out, and Namco Bandai is in.

After his recent chat with game pirates, independent developer Cliff Harris of Positech Games muses on pricing structure of games, as ‘cost’ was listed as a major reason for piracy. As he points out, plenty of other products have a wide continuum that ranges from ‘economy’ to ‘deluxe’; games can often be divided into ‘normal’ and ‘collectors’ editions. Why can’t we go a bit further, he asks:
