What We Missed: Insomniac’s next-gen game, ‘BioShock Vita’s’ status and more

Since our staff is responsible for covering pretty much everything related to the video game industry on a daily basis, it can be tough to post all the stories we think our readers would like to see. Videos go unwatched, new release dates are missed and silly quotes just float away without ever being heard. So, instead of ignoring the news that slipped through the cracks each week, we decided to put it all in one convenient place!

This week, we take a look at BioShock on the PlayStation Vita, a new trademark filed by Insomniac Games and a slew of trailers for Fuse.

‘BioShock Vita’ is yet to enter development 

Developer Irrational Games promised its fans a new, original BioShock story would be heading exclusively to the PlayStation Vita, but sadly, the game hasn’t even started development.

“I’ve got my fingers crossed that that’s going to happen because it’s something I want to do, but until somebody starts signing the checks, there’s nothing I can do,” Ken Levine told IGN. “At the end of the day, I work for Take-Two and they need to be able to fund that development, and they need to make sure they have a deal in place that makes sense for them and makes sense for Sony.”

With BioShock: Infinite officially gold and ready to be shipped to retailers, now might be the perfect time to see the Vita train get a rollin’.

‘Nexuiz’ Xbox 360 servers turned off

Sadly, the shock waves of THQ’s untimely closure have not yet subsided. The first-person shooter Nexuiz, published by THQ, is now offline on the Xbox 360.

“As some of you know, the Xbox Servers are now offline. It was fun while it lasted on there and we are glad you guys enjoyed the game!” the official Facebook page posted. “Unfortunately, the Xbox Servers were controlled by THQ and in the current state, cannot be maintained anymore. Since the PC servers are different and can be controlled 100% by IllFonic, they will remain online and functional. Thanks!”

Console fans are out of luck, but avid Nexuiz players (we know you’re out there) can still hop on the PC for some good, fast-paced fun with guns.

Insomniac trademarks ‘Sunset Drive,’ could be next-gen game

Fan of Ratchet & Clank? Still daydream about bringing an end to the terrible Chimera from the Resistance franchise? Well, you Insomniac lover you, get ready for a new IP from the noted developer.

Sadly, other than the current title of Sunset Drive, we don’t have much to tell you about this recently filed trademark. Anything registered from here on out will be a next-generation game, but all the other facts are still unknown.

Characters of ‘Fuse’ introduced in new videos

Speaking of Insomniac Games, here are a whole bunch of Fuse videos that introduce the full cast of characters.
