The weekly linkly round-up of game-related stories

A lot of stuff happens in the world of games every week - some of which you might have missed. So here's a partially arbitrary round-up of some of the choicest game-centric stories and articles that have appeared on the internet in the last five days. And when we say 'internet', we mean GamesRadar and our sister site CVG.

USA Today offers the first meaty details about Call of Duty: Black Ops. We subsequently detail the Black Ops details that were originally offered by USA Today.

A man in the games industry seems to be saying that if you've ever traded in a game, you're more of a nuisance than a pirate. That's the software type of pirate. Not the plundering, parrot-loving type.

Red Dead Redemption has kept GamesRadar's senior wildlife editor, B. Buttercup, busy this week. First it was the subjugation of horses, quickly followed by the thing with the bear.

Activision registers a bunch of domain names. One of them is Call of Duty: Space Warfare. We wouldn't put it past them.

God of War fans finally get the novelisation they didn't even know they wanted.

Everyone gets happy feelings all over again as the first LittleBigPlanet 2 video appears. We celebrate by suggesting three things that LBP2 desperately needs to make it even more impressive.

Whatever Bungie's new Activision published game turns out to be, it's going to be totally better than Halo. Says Bungie.

New Pokemon starters revealed. That's starters as in which Pokemon you'll get to choose at the beginning of Pokemon Black and White. Not starters as in hors d'oeuvres.

A man from RPG specialist BioWare says that Final Fantasy XIII is absolutely not an RPG and is really just an adventure game.

No doubt inspired by our 'Video game characters that should never be in porn again' feature, Bayonetta game designer Hideki Kamiya says that he isn't very happy about all the homemade Bayonetta manga porn being created in Japan. Our efforts to procure some have thus far proved fruitless.

    Uh why would ou want Bayonetta porn, she's not attractive.

    @garnsr: Pretty much. This coming from the guy with FF soundtracks and assorted merchandise...XIII wasn't an RPG. On-rails RPG, maybe, but not a normal RPG. And you can say "BUT TAIGAR, WUT ABOUT PULSE???" all ye want, but one area out of twenty does not an RPG make. And really, that's JUST what I wanted, more XII. >.> /obvious sarcasm By Western standards, it's not even close to an RPG. By those standards, it IS an adventure-esque game. By Eastern's on-rails. You're playing Gradius, except your T-38 Lightning is slightly less attractive.

    Isn't adventure a bit more interactive and choice-laden than FF XII? An adventure that holds your hand and walks you through the whole thing doesn't sound very adventurous.

    It's off topic, but i'm saying it anyways, Ass on that lass :P
