Now I know what you're thinking.

That's one attention grabbing title.

Is this a new reporter proclaiming that he is actually a piece of bread? Or is this, in fact, Bossa Studio's latest wacky and crazy simulation game? I think its safe to say the latter is more likely.

As stated, there is no announced platform or even a release window.

Have you ever thought to yourself, what if I was toast? Have you considered the likelihood that you are, in fact, biologically bread? Then you crazy person you, the time has come to live your dream and become the toast with the most. The Bread with stead. The Neatest goshdang wheat on the street.
You, are Bread.

Project Cars, the cool ass "next-gen" realistic-looking racing simulator, has been delayed from November 2014 to March 20, 2015. According to forum posts from Project Cars site, the reason for the delay is because "This delay has come about because a couple of other big games have announced they are shipping around the same time as our planned first date."

The studio released an official statement regarding the delay:

EDIT: It should be noted that March 20th is the release date for the PC/PS4/Xbox One versions, the Wii U version still has no confirmed release date.

If you've ever heard of the Postal series and enjoy completely senseless violence, Hatred, an upcoming game by Destructive Creations, should be on your radar. The developers have just released a trailer for the game and its contents resulted quite a negative stir, so much so that Epic Games wants their Unreal Engine logo removed from it - somewhat understandable considering the fact that it's practically a minute and a half of mindeless carnage. If you're underage, easily offended or squeamish, you probably shouldn't watch the video above.

What's your take on the game and its premise? Do you think Destructive Creations are crossing the line with this one? The game is certainly in bad taste, but at the end of the day, it's just a game, isn't it? Post your thoughts!

Hatred is to be released on PC in Q2 of 2015.

The PS4, much like the Xbox One and the Wii U, launched with only rudimentary functionality and a promise of new features to be introduced in the future. The gamers have spoken and Sony listened to their pleas - firmware 2.0 has a lot of new functionality to offer and it's coming soon to your PS4 system, including a USB media player, custom themes, enhanced voice commands and numerous improvements. The full change log can be found below.

Goodbye academia, it was a pleasure getting to know you. There's been a lack of food for thought pieces lately, and I felt like it'd be fun to just have a post like this because it's been everywhere the past couple of days. It's definitely not a secret that I enjoy playing games from Nintendo - they're good, shameless fun. Who would have guessed a Pokémon drawing game could be so entertaining? *wink* It's also not a secret that I'm a fan of Pokémon, and it's definitely known that I loved Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire as a child. That was the big thing for me growing up - ten years old, starting a journey. It felt real because I actually was understanding what was going on, instead of defaulting on Hyper Beam because it looked cool. So cue my surprise back in May, when it's announced that Ruby and Sapphire were being remade into Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. We'll go a bit deeper, but I must warn you, if you're afraid for spoilers, this might be an article you might want to pass up on.

America, you're not doing quite so bad after all! Nintendo recently announced some preliminary sales figures of the latest hit title on the Nintendo 3DS, Super Smash Bros. 3DS. Feel free to read my Official GBAtemp Review. For two days of sales in North America, grabbing 705,000 copies looks pretty solid. 135,000 were sold on the eShop. It also drove hardware sales up by 55%, moving 130,000 3DS units back in September. With the holidays coming up, these numbers are sure to increase, and with Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire on the horizon, Nintendo's got quite a holiday season coming up. Full press report below:

Google has been teasing the new Android release for quite a while. Little bits of information here and there have also hinted of new Nexus devices to be released alongside the new Android version. Well, the wait is over and Google has delivered as expected with a positive surprise to boot.

As was expected, Google's Nexus 6 is made by and based on Motorola's Moto X. The Nexus 9 on the other hand is made by HTC as per rumours. Both will run the new Android 5.0 Lollipop version and expected to have all the bells and whistles added with stock Android. Prices are expected to be at $649 for the Nexus 6 and $399 for the Nexus 9.

The Nexus Player is made by Asus and runs Android TV. With voice control and an optional gaming pad available for the device, I can see it replacing the Chromecast for many. Prices are from $99 and up (depending on whether you want the gamepad with the device).

Also Android L will be coming coming to Nexus devices around you from Nexus 4 onwards including Nexus 7 2012.
