Yes, you can travel in time!!



Thanks to seedyrom34 you can travel in time in GTA 4.

A new mod has been released for Grand Theft Auto 4 by YouTuber "seedyrom34". This mod is really amazing because it's a dedicated homage to Back to the Future’s time-traveling DeLorean.

The mod offers you the possibility of traveling in time thanks to the great DeLorean. To make it more real it includes also the Marty McFly skin and that's awesome!! The DeLorean is full equipped and you can travel in time by using the time controls, flux capacitor and plutonium. As you can see in the video below, if you hit 88mph your DeLorean will travel in time to save you or... to kill you.

Don't miss this great mod guys!

Fans of the series in North America, maybe finally happy!

Or not, as really in the comments make by the developers to Kotaku, there is no direct confirmation that the game will get finally ported over to the Western world to enjoy on their Nintendo 3DS!

Kotaku editor Stephen Totilo asked Nintendo president Satoru Iwata if Mother 3 would ever come to North America. Iwata replied by saying that he recently spoke to Earthbound creator Shigesato Itoi about the popularity of the Mother series in the West. During his conversation with Totilo, Iwata did not rule out the possibility of a Western release for Mother 3 – so maybe the game will eventually come to Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console.

Ubisoft is aiming to please 'hardcore' games with ZombiU

Wii U is rumored to be launching Nov. 18th, but NFC toys are coming early on October 25th?

Seems an Skylanders-type item being a NFC plastic toy will be one of key promotion items by Nintendo via Burger King to get the people in the mood to buy a Wii U system!

Global fast food chain Burger King will supposedly begin selling meals with Wii U toys on October 25th. According to a rumor, the toys will be NFC-integrated and can function with the Wii U GamePad; for example, if the toys are for Nintendo Land, a player can place a toy on the new controller’s NFC reader to unlock exclusive content such as special Mii characters.

Again another report points to November 18th as being the day



We will not know the truth until most likely the Sept. 13th conference by Nintendo, but many leaks are pointing to November 18th as the launch date, at least for the North America market


News has leaked from a GameStop conference that the popular retail outlet will be selling accessories for Wii U on November 18th. Although it’s not uncommon for peripherals for a console to launch early, it should be noted that the 18th of November is a Sunday. We should hopefully hear launch information and pricing for Wii U on September 13th.

Other leaks, also point to a launch price of $349 USA -- Is this a price the market can handle? -- Or you in at launch at that price?
