News Snatch: Watch Dogs, The Last Of Us PS4 And Booker Gets Sacked

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.

Obvious news doo doo doo doo do-do, obvious news doo doo doo doo do-do, OBVIOUS! NEWS! Newsthatisobvious! A-bing-bong-bing-bong…

  • Bong! Mobile developer says consoles won’t last much longer, mobile games are where it’s at.
  • Bong! Atari founder and console lover says mobile games are dead, won’t last much longer.
  • Bong! The PS3 architecture caused “some issues” for developers

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?


  1. My bioshock is on the way!!

    • Same here! By air mail, no less!

  2. That’s a pretty good idea for an advert

  3. When ‘FUSE’ FLOPS(it will) i hope it don’t stop Teddy’Bear’Price from making some New PS4(ONLY) ‘normal’ R&C games :P

    • I’m starting to think that you might be one of the staff just trolling us. Nobody can be that irritating and ignorant all at the same time…. can they?

      • I had real trouble just reading that post!

      • *Tin foil hat moment*
        Well, s/he hasn’t been banned for fanboyism/fangirlism yet, so it’s possible lol

      • What?! You can be banned for fanboyism on TSA, seriously?

      • @Germanos, we don’t know yet.

      • It had trouble with it too and in the end I honestly didn’t understand it.

    • …I’m think so too

  4. Actually I got a bit interested in FUSE now. It’s a real-real-shame it’s not “comic style graphics” any more, but I’m really into co-op story focused games. Loved Borderlands for that.

  5. FUSE actually sounds more interesting to me with a MP co-op focus. Watch Dog continues to look awesome.

  6. Could this be EA trying to make a generic version of Borderlands?

    • Sounds like they took arguably the best part of the online multiplayer, the co-op section of Resistance 2 and turned it into a full game. An element which was mysteriously absent from R3.

  7. Those sackboy skins are superb!

    However, Bioshock Infinite (the game itself) will keep me distracted so no more expenditure!

  8. Watchdogs is still on top of my “want” list.
    Will Fuse have local coop?

  9. Watch Dogs is definitely on my watch list. And aye, those Infinite skins for LBP look excellent.
