What’s this? Back-to-back days with posts in the gaming section of The Workprint? Can it be? Yes true believers, I’m back with another helping of highlights in today’s gaming news.
GTA V DRIVES BY ORIGINAL PC RELEASE DATE
Rockstar announced today that GTA V would need a few more weeks of polish and testing before players would be able to cruise around the streets of Los Santos and Blaine County. Most PC players, who are used to delays in ports of console games, will tell you that if it results in a better product it is worth the wait. (Stockholm Syndrome is real people!)

NINTENDO’S NEW 3DS WANTS TO BE YOUR VALENTINE
There’s a new rumor today that pins the North American release of Nintendo’s New 3ds (actual title) at February 13th, a day before Valentine’s Day. The above image is a leaked retail flier appearing on NeoGAF, lending weight to the rumor. Honestly, if there are two things you can rely on in the video game industry these days it’s 1) yes, that is Troy Baker’s voice you hear and 2) rumors and leaks are usually true. But until Nintendo confirms the date, don’t cancel your romantic dinner plans yet. Better yet, if you have romantic dinner plans, don’t cancel them for video games!
BUY A PS4, GET THE LAST OF US FREE
Look, it took a lot for me not to write a snarky headline for this one. I loved The Last of Us on the PS3 when it released… in 2013. The idea of packing in a remastered game, even an amazing one, just doesn’t get me excited to run out and spend $400. With that being said, it is still great to get any game with a console at no added cost and that is exactly what Sony is doing. The Playstation Blog announced that new bundles of the PS4 will include a download voucher for The Last of Us: Remastered. There’s no word on if this is a limited run or the new standard.
