Here's what's in the news today that you should care about.

Skyrim’s DLC to have “heartier, less frequent updates.”  The game itself will be out this November 11 for PS3, 360, and PC.

New screenshots for Final Fantasy XIII-2 have arrived.

DeadBlock’s brand-new release date is July 6 for Xbox LIVE Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points, and PlayStation Network on July 20. For more on the game, (including a trailer) go here. I’ll be playing as Boy Scout Mike Bacon in a game which puts you in the middle of a zombie apocalypse, created by Rock N’ Roll. 

The guys who made Invizimals are currently working on PS Vita exclusive launch title Reality Fighters and they have a new deal with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. Speaking perhaps a tad hyperbolically, Novarama CEO Dani Sánchez-Crespo said, "By extending our partnership, we will continue making kids believe in invisible creatures and turning gamers into video game characters. Broadly speaking, we want to make the impossible possible."

The founder of Electronic Arts (perhaps you’ve heard of them?) had some interesting things to say about the future of gaming. “The browser has already won on the PC.”

Respawn (former Infinity Ward dudes) has er… “spawned” a blurry image on their website under the “Games” section. Stay tuned.

Techies over at Digital Foundary are running a story about the Xbox 360 getting morphological anti-aliasing and it runs faster on the Xbox 360 than on the PS3.

Nintendo CEO says that the Wii U will draw in the hardcore gamers by the clever use of a traditional button layout.

OnLive's violated Shannon's Law.

World of Warcraft offers a free trip to Level 20. Not good news for those of us who have narrowly escaped WoW's clutches with our lives. Might be good news for gamers interested in trying out the game.
