No crap jokes today as we have some decent news to get our collective teeth into, starting with a new trailer for Ubisoft’s upcoming Watch Dogs.
I wonder how long before the mainstream media latch on to the fact that the game is just one big stalking simulator? It’s not as if phone hacking is a particularly cheerful topic for them at the moment.
Injustice: Gods Amongst Us will also land on iOS, according to Siliconera who say they saw the game very briefly at GDC. The game is being developed in house by NetherRealm.

Blair’s 10/10 review convinced me to buy Bioshock Infinite yesterday, to be honest I was going to give is a miss as I was fed up to the back teeth writing about it. It is really, really excellent, if you have not bought a copy yet I suggest you do so, one of the best games of this generation.
“We’ve made progress, and we can get partway to where we’re capable of going by borrowing from other media… but we can only go so far. We need some original ideas,” says Warren Spector, whose last two games featured Mickey Mouse.
Naughty Dog’s community strategist, Arne Meyer, has replied to a thread on NeoGAF that asked if there were any plans to bring The Last Of Us to PlayStation 4.
“Not at this time, we’re focused on shipping for PS3 – thinking about how to bring this over to PS4 would distract us right now. IF that’s something we can and choose to do, I suspect it would happen once we release the game.”
Fuse news, quick, everyone pretend to look interested!
Sarcasm aside there is something interesting to report about Fuse. It will not – I repeat, not – have a competitive multiplayer mode.
Hold the front page, say that again? The generic, orange and teal, shooty space marine game does not have competitive multiplayer?!?! The game that is being released by EA, the people who jammed multiplayer into Dead Space 2? The publisher fast becoming famous for multiplayer microtransactions? No generic team death match, what the smeg is going on?
“We built Fuse as a cooperative experience,” explains Ted Price, “While we experimented with some ideas for competitive multiplayer, we ultimately realized it was more fun when players could use the co-op skills they were building in both of our game’s big modes.”
And Finally, an advert for Apples. See what they did there?
