Sega have released an extended cut of an old trailer for Aliens Colonial Marines. That is terribly lazy so I’m not posting it, instead have a look at a new 2.5D side scrolling game called Obscure from Focus Home Interactive and Mighty Rocket Studio.
Joining Cliffy B in the ever growing ranks of Grumpy Old Men Of Gaming is Warren Spector who has been speaking at the DICE convention in Las Vegas. “I have no interest in guys who wear armour and swing big swords. I have been the last space marine between earth and an alien invasion. I really just don’t need to go there anymore. I want content that is relevant to my life, that is relevant to me, that is set in the real world,” he said.
Fair enough, but he continued “There are some games that should just not be made, by the way,” and displayed a slide from Lollipop Chainsaw.
Grow up Warren.
An investor call has revealed that a new Assassin’s Creed game will launch next year, much to the surprise of no-one, ever. What is raising eyebrows is the news that it will have a new character and a new time period. It has also been revealed that the PS Vita installment of the franchise has hit sales of 600,000.
Staying with Sony’s handheld, the Vita verison of Ratchet & Clank: Q-Force has been delayed yet again and is now scheduled for Spring 2013.
“Our friends at Tin Giant have been working night and day to bring Insomniac’s PS3 game to the PS Vita system and to provide our fans with a great game. While the original delay has helped us make the game better, we still need more time to bring the game up to the standards expected by our fans,” said Greg Phillips, a producer at SCEA.
More investor call news. Well, I say news, Activision have said there will be a new Call Of Duty next year, not exactly news is it? More like an inevitable fact of life.
Christ on a bike this is getting depressing. More Assassin’s Creed, more COD, delayed games, what else can I find to make your Friday even more terrible? How about this:
Brett Ratner, the chap who managed to completely balls up the third X-Men film, is to make a televelsion series based on… wait for it… wait… wait… based on Farmville.
I don’t think I can carry on today, it’s all too much for a Friday. Knowing my luck something really awful will turn up like a promo for some shite rock band like Muse with a video made from footage from a forthcming shooter. That would really finish me off.
