    Rent your own PS3 server in ‘Battlefield 3′

    Today, DICE rolled out a big update to the PS3 version of Battlefield 3. Included was a new layout for “Wake Island,” as well as the ability to buy “kits” designed to get things unlocked quickly. (Just in case you’re just now starting to play, I suppose.) But one of the neater things unveiled today is the ability to rent your own server for play. Go to the very-conveniently-named “Rent a Server” menu and you can customize your own server to fit your play style for you and your friends. Do you want the HUD? Do you want to tweak respawn times? Easy enough to do through the menus, or just choose a preset and get it done in just a few seconds. Pricing for this feature is $1.49 / $6.99 / $24.99 / $64.99 (for 1, 7, 30, and 90 days). This won’t be immediately available to everyone — at

    Face importing is fixed in the next ‘Mass Effect 3′ patch

    If you’re particularly attached to your FemShep or DudeShep, having played with them since the beginning, you were likely a little miffed when it turned out you couldn’t import your Shepard’s face into the latest iteration of the franchise, Mass Effect 3. (Read Keri’s review here.) As of today, however, BioWare’s Chris Priestly had some news that would make you a little happier — they’re fixing this in the next patch. Chris wrote today: Ok, I have what I hope is some good news. We have fixed the issue of faces not correctly importing into Mass Effect 3. It will be included as part of the next Mass Effect 3 patch. The not completely good news is that I do not yet have a confirmed date for when the patch will be available. A new patch gets heavily tested by BioWare, EA, Microsoft and Sony before it can be released to the public. We all

    Get your first look at ‘LittleBigPlanet Karting’

    LittleBigPlanet is already all about the modding, the making…you know, that whole “play, create, share” thing that Sony’s been on about for a while. But this new Karting edition (made by the very kart-friendly group at United Front Games as well as LBP‘s Media Molecule) looks a bit like something you wouldn’t have been able to create in the previous games, which means…well, it’s looking pretty good. Take a look at the official announcement trailer and think — nay, dream — about the possibilities. Follow

    Zynga buys ‘Draw Something’ creator OMGPOP

    The Wall Street Journal’s “All Things D” is reporting that OMGPOP, creators of Draw Something, has been purchased by Zynga. Sources close to the deal report that the developer was bought for $180 million, with another $30 million in employee retention payments. OMGPOP is based in New York, with a team of about 40 people. This is obviously not Zynga’s first acquisition — they previously bought Newtoy, the company behind Words with Friends, and Area/Code, makers of Drop7. In a conference call this afternoon, the purchase was confirmed. OMGPOP also detailed their plans to add chat and picture saving to the app (finally).   Follow

    Okay, maybe the Boys of Silence are the creepiest thing ‘BioShock Infinite’ has to offer

    So far, we’ve met the Handymen and the Motorized Patriots, but this new video for BioShock Infinite‘s “Boys of Silence” nails what’s creepy about them right on the head — that obscured head. These guys apparently can only hear you and call in backup. They’re the kind of thing you either avoid on purpose or take a risk and tackle head-on. And man, are they scary. By the end of this video, you’ll be sufficiently creeped out. Follow
