“Breakers” is the highly anticipated first single to come from Local Natives’ forthcoming new album. Local Natives said that their second LP, “Hummingbird”, “feels like our band, but we’re not doing the same thing again”– in other words, the type of intriguing, vague inclination you’d expect from a band sitting on music only they’ve heard. The album’s first single, “Breakers,” suggests that the statement was more of a sincere promise. You can hear the influence of tour mates Arcade Fire and The National in the drums and the production, which shift Local Natives away from the more wooly sounds of “Gorilla Manor” to something more streamlined and arena-filling.

Yesterday, Nintendo Australia released a presser detailing software release dates through to the end of the year and announcing a new 3DS XL colour which will be available before Christmas.
It's actually a bit light in the "date" area, with most games merely listing a launch month, but we do get a date for Paper Mario on the 3DS (8th Dec in case you can't be bothered to read the full press release after the jump)...

Turning an NES cartridge into a USB drive certainly isn’t a new idea but musician Fort Atlantic has decided to take the idea one step further and release a limited edition version of his first album this way.
Mobsters. Zombies. Killer robots. Demon priests. Sound like your typical animated film? Didn't think so... now let's get it made!
I absolutely loved everything about this "Proof of Concept Trailer" for The Goon when I first saw it...would be an awesome movie if done right, so get behind it now so we can see a proper Goon movie!
Check out some more details and view the trailer after the jump, or head straight to the Kickstarter page and pledge your hard earned cash to a worthy cause!

The Wheel of Time series will finally come to a close (or should that be "come full circle"?) with the release of the 14th and final book in the series, A Memory of Light, on 8th January 2013.

Players worldwide have collected more than 100 billion gold coins in New Super Mario Bros. 2 for the Nintendo 3DS portable system. That tally is set to skyrocket exponentially as Nintendo offers new Coin Rush Mode levels for the game. Several new downloadable add-on level packs will be made available to game owners, with the first three packs launching on Oct. 4. Each new pack contains three courses and can be purchased from within the game* at a price of $2.50 per pack. Subsequent packs will be on the way, with the next arrivals at the end of October and the end of November.
I've been hanging out for someone to release something like this for ages, but I didn't even know I wanted it until the good folks over at ONM (being Marti Bennett in this case) released a StreetPass Quest guide for all us poor 3DS owners. Be sure to head on over there to check out the guide so you can collect all those precious hats!
