The more television technology advances, the harder it is to keep our classic consoles hooked up. Modder Marshall over at Retroactive is working on a device to bring the last cartridge-based Nintendo console into the HDMI age. Anyone know how to solder?

As irreverent and ribald as you expect South Park to be, here is the trailer for South Park: The Stick of Truth, which premiered at the Video Game Awards. It gives you a look at the game's playable classes, plus all sorts of cameos from the show's long run, and elsewhere (is that Master Control from Tron?)
If the Video Game Awards are actually an awards show, and not just a keynote for promoting upcoming games, then the big news from last night was The Walking Dead: The Game. Eminently quotable analyst Michael Pachter said before the show that if this title, a downloadable self-published game, took home Game of the Year, he'd eat his hat. To his credit, Pachter later tweeted out a request for one, presumably to consume.
We knew some kind of sequel to the last Castlevania game was coming, and a new trailer shown during the VGAs offered up a ton more info. Narrated by the Belmonts' sworn eternal enemy, the clip showed Dracula recalling past glories and vowing a return to power. The teaser seemed to hint that you'd be playing as the Prince of Darkness. Then came cuts to an exterior shot that looks a whole lot like a modern city in 2012. We'll have more info on Lords of Shadow 2 as it becomes available.
The first all-new game given a trailer at the 2012 Video Game Awards is The Phantom Pain, and it seems almost deliberately confusing and vague. That's fitting given its premise, in which a veteran awakens in a hospital after a long coma, with his left hand amputated. In come the troops hellbent on exterminating the entire hospital population, and we can only guess it goes downhill from there.
