Dead Rising 3 is coming to Windows PC this summer on Steam, Capcom announced today.

Word of the PC version began to spread yesterday when it appeared in the Steam Database, and the video above invites players to “join the conversation” on Valve’s digital distribution service. Capcom also announced that Europe will receive a retail version of the formerly Xbox One-exclusive game. The PC version will include upgraded textures, support Steam Achievements and Trading Cards and support keyboard and mouse as well as controller play.

FTL: Advanced Edition, iPad Version Announced

Subset Games announced today that early next year they will be releasing a free expansion to 2012’s spaceship-management roguelike, FTL: Faster Than Light, as well as an iPad version of the title.

The expansion promises to include, “new enemies, drones, augments, systems, enemies, and more.” As the above trailer notes, part of the “more” will be all-new music and story content for the game.

The iPad version of the game is promised to include the content of both FTL: Faster Than Light, as well as the new content from the Advanced Edition expansion. Subset Games noted that they were looking into bringing FTL to other tablet devices, but would not make any promises. They also confirmed that there will be no mobile versions of FTL coming.

Expect FTL: Advanced Edition to launch on Windows, Mac, Linux, and iPad in early 2014.

Glory of the MMO Wireless Mouse: A review by Daniel Northup
When I started playing WoW I got the urge to get an MMO mouse. Naturally I looked at the Razer Naga. Fortunately the layout of the buttons deterred me from making a decision I may have come to regret. Sure, maybe the Naga is a fantastic device, I’ll probably never know. The thought of trying to memorize what 12 buttons, located one general area, are bound to really isn’t my cup of tea though.
[[MORE]]I only say all of this because the Steelseries WoW mouse fixed every problem I thought I’d have with the Naga. Sure, there are fewer buttons but they are comfortably spaced apart so you can use more than just your thumb to click these buttons. 4 buttons under your thumb, 5 for your index and middle finger, and 1 for your pinky. This gives your thumb a break and even lets you press several (if not all) buttons at once. 
Aside from the perfect placement of the buttons, the mouse lets you decide if you want to be wireless or not. If you like to be free from cords you plug the usb into the charging base and use it like any other wireless mouse. You set the mouse into it’s (extremely awesome looking) base to charge when you’re not using it, or if you’re in the middle of something when it dies you unplug the base and plug the usb into the mouse itself. This allows the mouse to charge while in use!
If you’re like me you may get distracted easily and end up walking away from your computer for long periods of time. Well Steelseries has your back there too. If the mouse goes unused for a few minutes it goes to sleep to reserve battery. To wake it up just click any button!
Something I’ll always love about Steelseries is it’s engine and the ability to adjust just about anything. Like most of their devices you can scale the CPI, polling rate, adjust the lights on the device and of course, what each button does and setting up macros and game profiles are easy as usual.
Now obviously this mouse is useful in more games than WoW. I’ve played through Bioshock Infinite with it, some TF2, Dota 2, and other MMOs like Guild Wars 2. It makes a ton of games a whole lot easier to play. It’s the best mouse I’ve used to date and if something happened to this one I’d have to buy the same one again. I love it.

Steam Trading Cards?
It’s actually a bit more than that, sure there are cards you collect from playing select Steam games, but you can also craft these virtual pieces of paper into Steam badges. Also, there is profile levels, badge XP, unlockable profile backgrounds and more. Read about it all here or join the beta here.
