News Snatch: Crash Bandicoot, Project CARS 2, And GAME's Premium Loyalty Scheme

Come with me if you want live


Greetings one and all, welcome back to News Snatch. First up a couple of short trailers for the Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy, one featuring the villains, the other showing the cute Polar Bear.


Unsubstantiated rumours suggest that IO Interactive will hold on to the Hitman franchise and Season 2 of the current game may be published independently.



Someone who clearly has too much time on their hands made the Terminator 2 movie in Grand Theft Auto V.


GAME has launched a premium loyalty scheme in which you can pledge your undying love for the retailer and give them £36 a year. MCV reports that “GAME Elite members will receive get ten per cent back on physical games and accessories, four per cent back on hardware and two per cent on trade-ins and digital.”

You will need to buy seven full price games at £50 a pop to recover your fee, but GAME are offering a price promise. “If you have been a member for 12 full consecutive months, and you receive less points back from purchases than the fee you have paid for your membership for those 12 months, we will give you the difference back in points.”

There will also be special offers and exclusive discounts. If you use GAME a lot then it might be worth a look, but it also might be worth checking out at this new thing called “The Internet” which has virtual stores that are usually a bit cheaper than GAME.



Bandai Namco are teasing DLC for the rather good Little Nightmares. At the end of this accolade trailer we get a brief glimpse at a new character.


The little game that did good, Rocket League, has teamed up with WWE. Rocket League “creatives” will air across WWE Network, WWE’s digital and social channels, and on WWE’s flagship TV programs Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live on USA Network. Rocket League will also be the presenting partner of the newly-announced WWE Women’s Tournament.



Project CARS 2 is being “built by drivers”, which seems a terrible idea, surely coders would be better?


The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, Episode 5: From the Gallows “is releasing on May 3rd.” This is my new pet hate, you release a game, it is not releasing.


Some new screens for the remastered Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, loads more can be found here.


To the filthmongers who keep on searching TSA for Injustice 2 porn, we’re not quite sure why you coming here as we do not have any Injustice 2 porn. But thanks for visiting.

There is a Kickstarter for Pac-Man art created by contemporary artist Richard Orlinski. It’s rather nice but will set you back €100.



And Finally, Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap launches on PC on June 8th

    Interesting choice of trailer at the end there, Tuff.

    Oh, so the sole benefit of the scheme is massively destroyed by the cost to get the benefit of the scheme. Well done, Game. Well done. Just when I thought you had finished with dumb ideas or fail to deliver stuff on time, you go ahead and do this. That’s roughly £350 a year and for merely £35. Or use Amazon, CEX, indie shops and that £350 can be used for anything else.

    I hope Hitman continues but i really want it as a full game instead of episodic content format.

    I wouldn’t mind the racing setup in the P Cars 2 video, I think the cockpit alone is over five grand.
