Need a last-minute Valentine’s Day gift for your geeky significant other? How about the real-time strategy adventure from Cyanide Studios, Impire. The dungeon based strategy game will be released on February 14, for $19.99. Your role in Impire is to overtake an entire kingdom, not so easy considering you will be playing as a tiny Imp.
For those who pre-order, you will be granted two additional DLC packs including “Creatures Of The Night.” This will add unique monsters to your evil empire like a Victorian vampire, who enjoy long jaunts with their undead poodles. Pre-ordering also gives you the “Black and White” pack which lets you raise any demon of your choosing as well as some in-game skins for your imps.
Impire was developed by Cyanide Studios of Montreal and will be published by Paradox Interactive. Get your Impire pre-orders from one of the fine retailers listed here. Check out the first released gameplay in the video below. Read more: Feeling Impish? Pre-Order Impire [VIDEO]
Borderlands 2 Mechromancer class coming early!

Did you pre-order Borderlands 2? Of course you did, you wanted in on the Premiere Club! You got the golden guns, the relic and the golden key. The only thing missing is the fifth class, the Mechromancer. Gearbox initially promised it soon after launch, then they said October 16th. Since then, we’ve had to contend with them handing out Shift codes on Twitter while we wait for Gage to join the ranks of the looters and shooters. Finally the wait is no more!
Amid the Tweets about surprises from Gearbox, Randy Pitchford dropped the revelation that we could slaughter Bullymongs as Gage and her BFF, DeathTrap, a bit sooner than promised. Today in fact. That’s right, Gearbox pulled off a Borderlands challenge and pushed through a piece of DLC early. Most times a company has to tell us it got shoved back but Borderlands just won’t put up with that nonsense.
It might take a bit of time for the character to populate to the various marketplaces but it will be available by the end of the day. If you for some rare reason didn’t pre-order, you can still get in on the DLC action for the smooth price of $9.99 or 800 Microsoft Points. You won’t get the guns or key but at least you won’t miss out on “Girlfriend Mode“.
BestBuy iPhone 5 Pre-orders see a possible month delay

Did you order your fancy new iPhone 5 from BestBuy? If so sorry for your luck as you may be waiting upwards of a month before the stores can fulfill all of their orders. Many customers were issued emails from BestBuy breaking the bad news that they would not be receiving their pre-ordered iPhone 5 this weekend. Instead of an iPhone you received a promise that your pre-order would be in sometime by mid-October but no later than 28 days from launch.
Sales of the iPhone 5 have been quite impressive and all Internet pre-orders for launch day models sold out within 24 hours. Of course you were notified immediately when the order was placed if you weren’t getting the phone today. The tragedy here is that BestBuy promised many customers a launch day iPhone 5 but in the end couldn’t deliver. There’s a sample of the email BestBuy sent out after the break, check it out.

Waiting in the iPhone 5 line for all the wrong reasons.

Apple fans are pretty hardcore so it’s not surprising that launch day shipments of the iPhone 5 sold out in an hour. I’m not proud but when I ordered online I had at my fingertips 2 computers and an iPad to ensure my pre-order success. Other die-hards that weren’t as successful as I have begun camping outside of Apple stores days in advance from the launch date.
However this year it seems as if the true Apple fans are being out shined by shameless self promotion. The first two people in line at Apple’s main store on Fifth Avenue are there promoting a social media startup. The next few in line were sent and sponsored by a company that buys old electronics like smartphones. Of course what line would be complete without the gold digger who plans on auctioning his spot in line to the highest bidder. Lastly the strangest line dwellers would be a couple of starving musicians looking to get discovered.
Online pre-ordering is so much more civilized, I’ll never wait in line at a launch again if I don’t have to. I guess props should be given to these opportunists since Apple launches tend to garner much publicity but I miss the days when this sort of mania was due to devotion not promotion.
