You may have noticed a trailer for GTA V was released yesterday and that meant all other news was cancelled or put on hold. Therefore we have a shorter than normal Snatch, a Snatchette if you like.
On with the news then, starting with Tom Hardy who has signed up to play Sam Fisher in the movie adaption of Ubisoft’s Splinter Cell franchise. “Tom Hardy is currently one of the biggest talents in the film industry, and he has a phenomenal ability to take on complex and varied roles with his broad range of acting skills,” said Jean-Julien Baronnet, CEO of Ubisoft Motion Pictures.
Ubisoft seem to be actively persuing top class talent for their film division, Michael Fassbender is attached to the Assassin’s Creed movie, could they be the first to make a decent film based on a video game?
Booty shaking Beyonce is being sued for $100m by a company you have never heard of for walking away from a dance game bearing her name, developed by a team that you have never heard of.
Other uninteresting news includes Black Ops 2 having – shock horror – bugs, and that Modern Warfare 4 is rumoured to somehow continue the plot of Modern Warfare 3, despite what happens at the end of that game.
Activision is also getting flak from legions of disgruntled PlayStation 3 gamers who cannot redeem their Nuketown 2025 codes and yet more complaints from people having problems with the multiplayer. “We are aware of connectivity issues that some players are facing in Black Ops II on PlayStation 3. We are working on resolution, thank you.” they tweeted.
Somewhat odd that all the problems are occuring with the PlayStation 3 version of the game, somewhere on the Internet a fanboy is thrashing out conspiracy theories this very second.
And finally… KnapNok Games from Denmark has announced Spin The Bottle for the Wii U. They describe is as an “innocent game for innocent kids”. The less innocent amongst you will probably have a filthy giggle within four seconds of watching the trailer which seems to feature a large bobbing yellow penis and green turd.
