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 tackle a teaser trailer for the newest Thief, Dragon Age III’s fresh engine and a few new games coming to the PlayStation 4.

Bioware says ‘Dragon Age III’ runs on Frostbite 3
The latest gameplay footage from this fall’s Battlefield 4 was a true visual feast. However, EA and DICE’s latest engine, Frostbite 3, won’t be exclusive to the military shooter.

‘Phantasy Star Online 2’ delayed in North America
Sonic Team’s highly anticipated online RPG, Phantasy Star Online 2, won’t be hitting its original North American release date.
It may have never had a solid month or day, since the window that SEGA previously announced was “early 2013.” However, we’re slowly reaching a point where it won’t be that early in 2013 anyone, so the publisher has let Polygon know that the game has been pushed.
“Originally slated for an early 2013 launch, Sega can officially confirm that PS02 has been delayed,” a Sega spokesperson said. “We don’t have any specifics but will update everyone as soon as there are more details to share.”
The game is already available for PC in Japan. The rest of the world will just have to wait a bit longer.

‘Dust: An Elysian Tail’ coming to Steam
Dust: An Elysian Tail, the highly regarded Summer of Arcade title created by a puny team, is heading to Valve’s Steam platform.
Creators Dean Dodrill and Alex Kain announced this move to a new platform during a panel at PAX East, and for now, April is the desired launch month.
“I’m really excited,” Dodril said. “I’m very happy with the [PC] port, I’m not going to do a whole lot different.”
Look for some more solid information in the coming week.
