Prey 2 is on the chopping block of games that gamers will never play. Meanwhile a reboot of one of the most iconic third-person action games is underway with Soul Reaver. And after unsuccessfully recruiting gamers to rat out hackers for them, Capcom has decided that it would probably be best to find those pesky Street Fighter X Tekken hackers that exposed all the on-disc DLC themselves. These stories and more in this March 24th, 2012 edition of the Gaming Blend Weekly Recap.
