TL;DR - Sept 22 - Steam Upgrade, USFIV Omega, 900p Xbone

Hello and good-evening for those late-nighters that have stumbled in upon the return of Shogun Gamer and in specific it’s semi-reoccurring truncation of the news named TL;DR. If you’re joining us here for the first time in this segment the principle is simple enough: There are some news segments that get launched out there that aren’t big enough for our editorialized articles, but we still feel the need to bring to you in some form.

TL;DR - July 15 - EVO, Ultra, Steam Sale

Hey everyone! Time for another edition of TL;DR, catching you up on a bit of the news that has caught our attention throughout the day (or rather days) since it’s last episodic adventure. Today’s highlights include a whole lot of EVO in the form of wrap-ups of the tournaments as well as some of the announcements that launched during the show, and a bevy of new video game trailers for you to feast your eyeballs on. Let’s get started!


The News

TL;DR - Jul 1 - Mattrick, EVO2k13, Xbone Features

In the spirit of the site’s “relaunch” Ian and I have been talking about new features that we can bring to the site to provide some kind of consistency, some form of reoccurrence on the site that our readers can rely on in between our larger, in-depth, editorials and interviews.

TL;DR - July 30 - Preorders, Durango, E3

It’s been a while… but I think the recent resurrection of my previous ‘passion project’, Why You Should Care, brought me back around to the idea of restarting my other ‘claim to fame’: TL;DR. As some of you may remember, it’s an opportunity for Shogun to catch up on some of the smaller stories of the day and provide you with the news you need, when the items themselves weren’t particularly large enough for a full ‘feature’.

TL;DR - Mar 23 - Mohawks, Prey 2, Adventure Time!


Happy Friday fellow Shogunites! The week, as long as it may have felt, has finally concluded its grind. Its time to kick back, relax, and dig into whatever game you’re currently working your way through… unless you’re the going out on Friday night kind, in which case: Happy Saturday! Today’s TL;DR offers up some exciting news for the DS in the form of an Adventure Time game. Ubisoft is making plans to shave heads and tattoo attendees at PAX East (exciting!), and some GDC cancellations have the internet talking games that might be canned.

TL;DR - Mar 22 - Bayonetta, Dust 514, Alan Wake 2

My apologizes for the brief (week) and unplanned hiatus of TL;DR. The good news is that it’s back, and hopefully will retain its nightly-routine for the foreseeable future. There’s been a lot that’s happened since I’ve been gone, but I’m not going to bother playing catch-up on all of it. Instead, let’s just pick up from today shall we? : Bayonetta has been announced as joining in with Anarchy Reigns. There’s a rumor about Alan Wake 2 making an appearance on the Xbox 720, and there was some live footage of Dust 514 that was shown today.

TL;DR - Mar 14 - Baldur's Countdown, Sega, Dynasty Warriors 3DS

Another late night edition of the TL;DR segment, though this one with good reason! Earlier tonight I got to attend The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses, so I was a little bit late getting back to my desk. None the less! There is new information for you today in the form of: Sega joining forces to provide their ‘top games’ on Origin. The Baldur’s Gate teaser site has received an update, in countdown form, and Samus and Link will be playable characters on the 3DS version of Dynasty Warriors.

TL;DR - Mar 13 - DFA Final Tally, Sonic 4: Ep 3, XBL Outage

It looks like tonight I’m doing a super-late edition of our evening meet-up friends. But don’t you fear, a new TL;DR is here! Also, that rhymed, so I should get bonus points. In today’s TL;DR I recap a couple of things that broke my little fan boy heart: Sonic 4 is apparently not getting a third episode, and Xbox Live was killing achievements through-out the day. The good news? Mr. Schafer has wrapped up his quest to fund a new adventure game with a cool 3.3 million.

TL;DR - Mar 12 - GDC 2012, Scrolls, Achievements

Happy Monday Shogun Gamer-ites! Gamers? That makes more sense. Shogun Gamers! It’s the first day of a new week, and that means I can get started on recapping some of the stories we didn’t get around to throughout the day. Today I shine the spotlight on a couple of smaller stories that piqued my personal interest, and you might be interested in as well: Microsoft has increased their points on XBLA titles to 400! Mojang and Bethesda settled the ‘Scrolls’ dispute, and GDC announces their numbers for 2012.


TL;DR - Mar 9 - Durango, SteamBox, Heavy Hitters

First of all, I have to throw out an apology for not getting around to a TL;DR yesterday. Due to an unforeseen migraine I had to 1) bail out of a party early, and 2) bail out of working. Sadface. Anyways! We’re back tonight, and I’ve got a couple of stories that caught my eye that I wanted to share: Microsoft’s next console doesn’t have a disc-drive, Valve confirms the SteamBox is NOT a thing… yet, and BioShock Infinite reveals their new mid-tier bosses the ‘heavy hitters.’
