News Snatch: Battlefield 4 Dinosaurs, No Madden For Wii U And Remember Me

Let’s have a special bank holiday Snatch.


First up, a dev diary for Resident Evil Revelations.

In case you had not noticed, Channel 5’s Demand 5 service is now available as a beta on PS3. Despite CSI being on constant loop on their channels only one episode seems on the service.

Work on a sequel to Zone Of Enders has been put on hold due to problems with the recent HD conversion of the old games.

Dishonored’s Void Walker’s Arsenal add-on pack which contains all the DLC previously available as pre-order bonuses from various retailers will be on the stores next week.

Xbox Live Gold is free this weekend from 12pm BST Friday May 3rd until 23:59 BST on Sunday May 5th.

62BL-66N9-CEJC – Thomas Was Alone DLC for PS3.

Shout in the comments section if you claimed the code.

Gearbox have responded to the lawsuits brought against for Aliens: Colonial Marines.

“Attempting to wring a class action lawsuit out of a demonstration is beyond meritless. We continue to support the game, and will defend the rights of entertainers to share their works-in-progress without fear of frivolous litigation.”

Meanwhile TimeGate Studios who contributed to the development of the game have filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection this week.

Weird News Of The Day: A survey has asked if Battlefield 4 players would be interested in co-op mode which pits gamers against dinosaurs.

Well if Call Of Duty can have Zombies, why not?

More good news for Nintendo… no wait, I mean ‘Yet another nail in the coffin of the Wii U’, as for the first time since 1991 the Madden franchise will not be available for a Nintendo console. EA released the following statement:

“We will not be releasing a Wii U version of Madden NFL in 2013. However, we have a strong partnership with Nintendo and will continue to evaluate opportunities for delivering additional Madden NFL products for Nintendo fans in the future.”

And Finally, another developer diary, this time Capcom’s rather fantastic Remember Me. Have a good bank holiday, see you next week.



  1. Lovely little easter egg tucked in there.

  2. I was too late, never that quick on codes.

    • Oh! Who got the code then?!

      • Could be someone who has 0 Post =P

      • Well that’s just rude! Not even saying thanks!

  3. Less sports games would be amazing.

  4. Is it just me, or does the bloke on that BF4 link you posted look like Matt LeBlanc?

  5. No Madden? Doesn’t get much bigger. Just have to rule out Fifa and Battlefield now and the Wii U will be looking like being in major trouble.

    You’d think Madden would be perfect for the Wii U gamepad
