A new trailer for Splinter Cell Blacklist has been posted which reveal agent Sam Fisher’s abilities. It is, as you might expect, rather violent.

Oh dearTed Price from Insomniac games has said their upcoming game, Fuse, will “offer something very fresh for players to check out when they’ve been playing, essentially, the same games for the last 5 or 6 years.”

“We’re absolutely interested in experimenting,” he added. Fuse hits the shelves on May 28th for both PS3 and Xbox 360.

Not News Of The Day: World of Tanks developer, Wargaming, may make a free to play game for the PS4 at some point, but they do not have any plans at present.

If anyone else is considering maybe possibly perhaps doing something at some point sometime in the future whenever somewhere maybe then VG247 will be sure to let you know.

Amazon France has listed the Jak & Daxter Trilogy on PlayStation Vita alongside Epic Mickey 2. Both games are dated for June although Sony have yet to announce Jak on Vita.

You may be aware that I dabble in music and back in the day helped run a rather successful club night called Riot!, a hard dance night featuring top DJ types including Kutski who is now resident on BBC Radio 1.

On his show last week for the ‘Inspiration Generation’ feature his guest was Alf Bamford, aka Technikal, and they talked about video game music, specifically the chip tunes from Nintendo consoles.

Check out the interview above, which also includes music from Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Jean-Maxime Moris from Dontnod has described having a female lead in Remember Me as a “subconscious militant act.”

“We didn’t think of gender equality being a major theme in the game, but thinking back on the world we designed, it is true that women have key positions in its governance,” he added.

Artistic types can enter a competition to design a shield for Dark Souls II, the winning designs will feature in the game, head over to Facebook for more info.

And finally, a 90 year old grandma tries Oculus Rift. Awww!


  1. I found it strange, during the opening of Splinter Cell video, that the sinister, evil voice threatening ‘Merca for all it’s heinous acts around the world had a very generic American accent. Couldn’t they have least tried an English accent, if they found the idea of an Arabic / Chinese / Korean accent too controversial?

  2. Blacklist looks really good, would of prefered to of seen a bit more gameplay of the abilities in action though.

  3. Good god, that video is tricky to watch with the Gran trying out the 3D visuals. “Oh man… oh… oh, man!”

    Evil chaps subjecting her to this. She’s just happy her cataracts work for god’s sake, let alone blowing her mind with 3D graphics stereoscopically beamed just inches from her eyeballs! :-)

    • I think it’s really sweet. She’s blown away by it. Heart-warming.
