UK Retailer Drops Wii U, Fez Developer Cancels Fez II ? And Bioshock Infinite DLC

Good afternoon everyone.

Got some info on the situation with the Wii U at a UK retailer, the developer of FEZ has cancelled Fez II and we've learned what the DLC for Bioshock Infinite will be.

UK Retailer Drops the Wii U


A Wal-Mart subsidiary known as Asda is no longer stocking the Wii U console at any of its 555 retail stores across the country.

The retailer says it will continue to stock selected Wii U titles through its online store.

"Asda continues to offer customers a selection of Wii U games and accessories through Asda Direct, but these ranges are currently not on offer in Asda shops, Asda will stock [Wii U] games on a title-by-title merit basis as they come along through Asda Direct. We will continue to support Nintendo as a format holder partner."

The Wii U will continue to stock online for Asda customers but is currently out of stock due to a recent sale on the hardware. Past months have shown Asda repeatedly slashing prices of 3DS hardware to shift stock. The retailer is still accepting preorders for Microsoft's Xbox One and Sony's Playstation 4, both of which are due to launch later this year.

Nintendo refused to comment on the situation but did say it was "looking forward" to the Wii U's year ahead.

Fez II Cancelled ?


Designer Phil Fish took to Twitter after comments made by  Marcus "Annoyed Gamer" Beer on GameTrailers on a podcast called "Invisible Walls" made some very harsh comments about indie game creator of Braid Jonathan Blow and Phil Fish for not answering questions pertaining to a story published by Game Informer about the Xbox One allowing indie developers to self publish.

Some gaming outlets had asked Jonathan and Phil for their thoughts on the matter, neither wanted to comment, Phil in particular.

After the comments that the "Annoyed Gamer" made Phil Fish took to Twitter, what ensued was rage and frustration. Phil insulted Annoyed Gamer in a series of tweets, one of them telling Marcus Beer to "kill himself".

At the end of the rant the last tweet from Phil was "I'm done. FEZ II is canceled. Goodbye."

Bioshock Infinite DLC 


The three pieces of DLC has been announced for Bioshock Infinite today.

The first piece of DLC was actually released today for 5 dollars or 400 Microsoft Points called "Clash in The Clouds".

And a two part DLC called "Burial At Sea" taking place on the eve of the Rapture Revolution, where you play as Private Eye Booker DeWitt meeting the girl Elizabeth.

We will be exploring Rapture once more my fellow Bioshock fans and from what I've heard, the gameplay will be a combination of Bioshock and Bioshock Infinite.


Starting with the UK article.

So the Wii U is sold out in the stores but you can still buy the Wii U from Asda online. It's a good news bad news situation to me, good news is that the Wii U sold out at Asda, bad news is that you won't be able to go to Asda to pick up a Wii U to come back home and set it up.

The Fez article.

Look I didn't play Fez, I've read that it's been a very successful title and that it's a good indie game.

However I say to Phil, you're popular and you're on the internet. You will always be criticized for anything you do even if the overall reaction is very positive.

Ignore that guy Marcus Beer, think about your fans and those who will support you and Fez II.

Finally the Bioshock Infinite DLC.

                               OH MY GOD!!!!
Oh man I had a nerdgasm this morning when I saw the trailer to "Burial At Sea" we get to see Rapture again and this time we'll be able to see it before the war. It looks so beautiful and the artwork to the DLC poster I absolutely love.

I hear that Burial At Sea will be released in 2014 but I hope to god it comes sooner.

That's it for now guys.

Thanks for reading I'll see you guys later.
