Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 coming out on November 13th?

The new Call of Duty game being revealed on May 1st is drawing a lot of attention. There are many different sources claiming to have pictures of the game cover, game lists etc. The name usually being used is Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

There has been hundreds of rumors spreading over the net about the new Samsung Galaxy SIII, but most of them are complete nonsense.

However, it has been an Android phone we all anticipated and everyone keeps everyone keeps talking about it.

Can't wait what's coming up in the near future? About a week ago, Samsung enticed many people with this picture that gave them a clue about what to expect with the new Galaxy phone. This picture on the right, in the Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2012 app, shows that it will be unveiled on the 3rd of May.

Was Skyrim A Disappointment?

Note: This is not supposed to be a serious review, just me giving my thoughts.
Time for a review! What better game to review than Skyrim, a game that you either love or hate. I know, I know, I'm late by half a year. However, I thought I would point out the flaws and the strengths of this game.  The review continues after the break.

So, without further ado, FUS RO DAH!

Midnight Purple 3DS to be release in America next month? (Rumour)

Over a year ago, when it launched, the Nintendo 3DS only allowed two colours, Aqua Blue and Cosmo Black. However, just two colours didn't give enough variety to consumer, so the choices increased to five colours in the US market.  A few days ago, it appears there is another rumour spreading that another colour of the 3DS will become available for purchase.
What the Midnight Purple 3DS would look like

There are five colours of the 3DS available in the US market, and, compared to the other Nintendo DS's, that's a lot. According to a user in GameFAQs, in EB Games under the 3DS hardware list, there was another colour listed, Midnight Purple.

More information after the break.
