Sorry it’s a day late. Holidays created the delay.
Quick cap news
* South Korea has enacted a gaming curfew preventing gamers aged 15 or under from playing online games from midnight to 6AM. The curfew was passed unanimously.
* Gearbox has announced that any talk about Borderlands 2 not from them should be dismissed. It has stopped it popping up.
* Telltale has announced a release date for the remake of Hector: Badge of Carnage.

* With its UK release, Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon recalls the original game’s controversy nearly 20 years ago.
* THQ reports boosted sales for Dawn of War II Retribution after switching the platform from Games for Window Live to Steam.
* Ubisoft are offering free games with every purchase this weekend. It wouldn’t be too hard to purchase all the Ubisoft games worth having with such an offer.
* Fallout: New Vegas has little in the way of extra DLC so far, but that has not stopped a GOTY edition being prepared, it seems.
* An internal memo from Activision revealed a very strong optimism on the future strength of the Call of Duty series, good news for Call of Duty fans.
* Fans protested against certain aspects of Portal 2 on Metacritic. Personally, I agree that the in-game store is a bit of a low blow from Valve, but finds the criticism beside quite off the mark.
Lack of time means there’s no main news this week, but the upcoming week promises a full return to schedule and a review of Portal 2.
