Last year Sony released The Last of Us a day after E3 ended and that game took the world by storm and won many Game of the Year titles. Granted that’s more to do with the game being incredible rather than its release date but that doesn’t mean the release date was a bad idea.
Oh, what a sad day it was when we found out that we weren't getting Titanfall in South Africa. The only country in the world where Titanfall was pulled, and it was primarily due to our poor infrastructure (among other reasons). Well, maybe it will release here after all - Azure servers are rumoured to be on the way.
Microsoft recently announced that they are going to be making the biggest announcement since that meteor hit the planet a while back. This announcement is going to be made at E3 but what could it be?
I can’t see Dishonored not getting a sequel. The game was well received, Bethesda saw the chance to craft a new money-making universe and there’s a bunch of disappointed Thief gamers right now who would embrace it with open arms. Is it coming? Well here’s some more evidence to lend credence to the first rumour.
It hasn’t been a fun couple of weeks for Fallout fans. With the Spike VGX awards coming up, many thought that Bethesda would be showing off a PS4 and Xbox One version of Fallout 4, something bolstered by a mysterious website. That turned out to be a hoax. But Fallout 4 may still be alive, and it could be set somewhere wicked awesome.
Remember when Microsoft was also going to launch the Xbox One in countries such as Russia, Scandinavia and the Benelux area? Well, it appears that they may be waiting even longer for the console - but what does that mean for us?
We’ve heard previous rumours about the PlayStation 4 possible suffering from overheating and while all these rumours have been unsubstantiated the guys over at Dualshockers decided it was a good idea to approach a developer and ask them about the rumours.
A popular Swedish retailer may have let the proverbial cat out of the bag by putting up a page to accept pre-orders for The Last of Us 2 by Naughty Dog.
Call of Duty: Ghosts launches tomorrow… yes we are one day away from entering a new era in Call of Duty and obviously that means the rumour mill is going insane. The latest rumour this morning is that the Call of Duty: Ghosts single player campaign is only 4 hours long.
So far Arkham Origins is throwing every villain it can, minus Kitchen-Sink Man at the Batman. Beyond those side-quest assassins though, players will have their hands full with the eight prime killers of the game. So far, we know of six of them. And now, we know who happens to be filling out the rest of that cast of ne’er-do-wells.
Right now, if you switch on your Xbox 360, it takes quite some time for he console to do its boot up splash screen, and become useable – and it’s only gotten worse over time as each dashboard iteration has added more and more features (and adverts). That is likely to change with the Xbox One.
I’ve got a pre-order for a PlayStation 4, though I honestly have no idea why. There’s very little in the launch line-up that I actually want to play. There’s maybe, maybe Killzone: Shadow Fall - but I’m not a big fan of shooters. There was Watch Dogs, but we know that that’s been delayed. And it looks like another one of the system’s launch titles might only be released next year.
One of the strangest things at the moment is that the biggest game of the past couple of years, Grand Theft Auto V, is still to receive a PC release date. According to Rockstar there are no plans currently to bring GTA V to PC’s but we all believe that to be a lie - so the question is when will the PC master race get the game?
Just yesterday Nvidia revealed, in their regular earnings call, that GTA V is coming to a PC near you in the not to distant future. The master race celebrated and cheered and made funny faces at the console gamers all day long, but maybe they should have put that champagne on ice.
