News Snatch: Wolfenstien: New Order, Thunder Wolves And The Elder Scrolls Online


Another day, another video for The Elder Scrolls Online, this time showcasing character creation and new game play.


Wolfenstein: The New Order has been delayed into 2014; Bethesda Softworks VP of PR and Marketing Pete Hines told Polygon that the game had “been in development for quite some time” but they had encountered challenges developing for both current and next-gen simultaneously.

“Working on next-gen and current gen definitely has an impact, you’re developing for two different things,” explained Peter. “The fact that the next-gen stuff is still moving is also definitely a factor. But the most important thing was definitely just looking where it was at, what they needed to polish. Because it’s just not trying to be a shooter, because it’s trying to be a shooter that also has driving elements, story elements, narrative, stealth sections — each one of those has to be excellent.”

“It’s not just like we’re making a shooter, where if the shooting is good, then all 16 hours of the game will be good because it’s all we’re doing.”

Also delayed is Lone Survivor for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita which has slipped from August to September.


I’m not to sure what is going on with Thunder Wolves on the PSN, it was meant to be released in June and there were reports of it being on the store briefly but now the US PlayStation Blog have posted that it will arrive on August 13th.

The game scored and impressive 8/10 in our review and there will be a trial and unlock demo so you can check if the occasional juddering frame rate has been fixed.


GAME is holding four lock-ins tonight where attendees will have the chance to see demos for Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed IV, taken from the E3 2013 builds.

Yes, that’s see – not play; you might as well stay at home and watch YouTube videos but if you do go to one of the GAME stores listed below and pre-order the game you will recieve an extra bit of promotional tat. The participating stores are as follows:

Liverpool Lord Street – 72 Lord Street, L2 1TL at 19.00hr
Northfield – 9 Church Road, B31 2JX at 18:00hr
Norwich – 2-10 Back of the Inns, NR2 1PT at 18:00hr
Portsmouth – 226 Commercial Road, PO1 1HG at 18:00hr


A second retailer has listed Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus for PlayStation Vita.


Codemasters founder David Darling has given his thoughts on Microsoft’s massive Xbox One U-turn, he thinks they have made a massive mistake describing physical media like “having a dead body handcuffed” to the console.

“It was interesting how the market did pull back with Microsoft,” he said. “I don’t think Microsoft sold it in the right way – they weren’t strong enough. I don’t think they should have had a physical drive on Xbox One – it’s like having a dead body handcuffed to you. It’s dragging along this dead body and it’s going to slow them down. They’ve let the market pull them back but I think that was a mistake.”

  1. Lovely Geek video. We definitely need a more mature situation where people online aren’t being harassed (to illegal levels!) for being any different to the average folks online… be it age, gender, sexual preference, etc.

  2. That last video is great, definitely the snatch highlight. Really funny seeing John Scalzi in there, I just started reading The Human Division today!
