Hey, proper news today, good stuff that’s at least 25% more intresting the the bum fluff from yesterday, starting with a new video for GRID 2.
Patch Snatch: God Of War Ascension is getting tinkered with, the ‘Trial of Archimedes’ mission has been criticised by some gamers as being rather difficult. Game Director Todd Papy tweeted “I personally tuned it. I didn’t mean for it to be so hard. We are looking into patching it.”
PlayStation All-Star Battle Royale With Cheese is also being patched with almost every character being tweaked, for the rather huge patch notes click here.
Is it that time of year again? Yes it is, a teaser site for the next Call Of Duty game has appeared with the ironic URL of http://unexpectedreveal.com.
The domain has been registered by Infinity Ward and shows a blurry screenshot with the text “Objective was updated. Escape.” written in the familiar bright green COD font. A countdown can be seen and the HTML code for the site includes the text “Call of Duty – Worldwide reveal March 21”.
Hey, you know my theory that Ubisoft are deliberately leaking images for Assassin’s Creed games to feed the hype? The one that is all in my head? Well just a few hours ago the Internet discovered a listing for Assassin’s Creed Rising Phoenix for PS Vita.
Well bless my cotton socks, by pure and utter coincidence another screenshot from the game has just leaked! Just in time for everyone to add onto their reports of the game listing! What are the chances of that happening?
Let’s take a good look at the screenshot. It is for “Internal Use Only” but what use? The screen is mostly black, shows no characters, no details, nothing apart from a weird blob in the centre of the screen. It’s rather like – dare I suggest it – a teaser image, rather than a screenshot that could be of any use to teams developing the game as it shows bugger all.
But of course, I’m making this all up in my head.
Ubisoft are absolutely, definitely not leaking images on purpose.
Note: Yes they are.
