The latest Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC has chosen none other than Snoop Dogg to lend his voice to your kills. Yes, this is a real thing. Snoop Dogg. The rapper will now be able to voice your Call of Duty: Ghosts games if you want this DLC pack.

Snoop Dogg stars in Call Of Duty: Ghosts’ voice pack

It is pretty comical, but at the same time a refreshing take on the game. The DLC’s description reads, “Have Snoop narrate each of your firefights, call in your killstreaks, and alert you to enemy activity.” I like it. Frankly, after watching the video and having a good laugh, I can’t imagine playing without hearing Snoop’s voice. It is a good and unique choice for a new voice.

Nintendo will not allow gay characters in upcoming game

Nintendo will not allow gay characters in upcoming game

In news that is bound to anger many gamers, Nintendo will not allow gamers to play as gay in an upcoming life simulator game called Tomodachi Life.

Nintendo said Tuesday that it wouldn’t cave to pressure to allow players to engage in romantic activities with characters of the same sex in English editions of the game. Fans had launched a social media campaign last month seeking virtual equality for the game’s characters, which are modeled after real people. Sadly, Nintendo isn’t ready to go down that warp pipe.

“Nintendo never intended to make any form of social commentary with the launch of ‘Tomodachi Life,’” Nintendo of America Inc. said in a statement. “The relationship options in the game represent a playful alternate world rather than a real-life simulation. We hope that all of our fans will see that ‘Tomodachi Life’ was intended to be a whimsical and quirky game, and that we were absolutely not trying to provide social commentary.”

Sony ships new thinner PS Vita Slim in U.S.

Sony ships new thinner PS Vita Slim in U.S.

Sony has finally released an updated PlayStation Vita model in the United States, after introducing it in the United Kingdom in January. There was also a Japanese launch late last year. This PS Vita Slim is 20 percent slimmer and 15 percent lighter than the original version.

Aside from that, very few changes have been made to the handheld game console overall. One of the changes that did take place is the OLED panel, changed to a 960×540 IPS LCD version, which along with the other improvements, will improve battery life so that it lasts up to six hours.

You can look forward to the same quad-core Cortex A9-based processor with 512MB of RAM and 128MB of VRAM, but it adds 1GB of built-in storage for game installs and other content. Connecting the PS Vita Slim is also different now, with Sony’s proprietary solution being ditched for a microUSB version. Fans of the handheld may want to give it a shot, as well as those who haven’t taken the plunge yet. That is, if you like lighter and thinner handhelds that come along with other improvements. And who doesn’t? Sony hopes to sell a lot of these this year.
