Deadpool loves two things: killing people for money, and added value. That might explain why—well, the last bit anyway—Activision has announced a slew of pre-order bonuses for High Moon Studios’ Deadpool. The upcoming action title based on Marvel’s mouthy merc will hit store shelves this June, but before then, gamers can get a handful of extras from Amazon and EBGames/GameStop. The bonuses, detailed below in Deadpool-speak, include desktop wallpapers, a map pack, and credit towards the purchase of select Marvel graphic novels.

Spiders has released a new video explaining the ins and outs of their upcoming sci-fi-themed role-playing game Mars War Logs. The studio has been releasing media at a trickle, and save for a revamped website, has been pretty low key as to what all players can expect when the game launches this summer.

Sacred Citadel, a new side-scrolling brawler set in the Sacred universe, is now available for 360, PC, and PS3.

Four-player multiplayer, complete with drop-in/drop-out co-op, is also supported in all versions.
