News Snatch: Battlefield 4, Gran Turismo 6 And Kickstarters
Stop! STOP! Do not press play on that video just yet, it’s the new TV spot for Beyond: Two Souls and it’s awesome, but it does show a few new scenes including one I did not want to see so this is a big SPOILER WARNING.

Right, now that’s out of the way is anybody actually reading this? I know most of you are busy smoking doobies and boffing hoes (in GTA V, of course) but it would be nice if there was someone out there. Hello? *Taps screen* Anyone?


Naughty Dog have taken delivery of 120 more PS4 dev kits but have yet to reveal what their two teams are working on, the teasers.

It looks like Hyper Light Drifter may reach it Kickstarter stretch goal and be released on PS Vita PS4, at the time of writing they have $198,193 with 25 days to go and the PlayStation versions will be unlocked at $220,000. Click here for more on the game and to visit the Kickstarter page.

Staying with Kickstarter, Obsidian have supported The Long Dark, “a thoughtful, first-person survival simulation that emphasizes quiet exploration in a stark, yet hauntingly beautiful, post-disaster setting.” For more on that project, click here.

The final Kickstarter project today is Mighty No. 9, the new game from Megaman creator Keiji Inafune which has reached it’s stretch goal and will now be coming to PS3 and Xbox 360.

You can sign up for the beta for Silent Hunter, Ubisoft’s free-to-play strategy simulation game in which you command your own submarines.

According to the BBC, “it is widely accepted that GTA5 will be the first title in the franchise to allow in-game purchases.”

The Evil Within director, Shinji Mikami, was asked by OXM if his tense, survival horror game was “purposefully not going after the Call of Duty market.”

Obviously he said he was not.

Stay tuned for more insightful questions including, “So your game has no football in it, so you are deliberately not chasing the FIFA crowd then?” and “Is your 18 rated, gory slasher game aiming to take a slice of the Skylander pie?”

Not-surprise of the day: Gran Turismo 6 probably won’t be finished at launch.

“I think I mentioned this in the past, but we’re really working to change the fundamental way that the engine sound works. Right now I have a feeling that it might not make it for day one for GT6,” said Polyphony Digital head Kazunori Yamauchi.

The new sound, ahem, engine may get patched in at a later date.

And Finally, get ready for “the chaos of all-out war, in a series of unscripted controller-dropping moments”. Yes, it’s the Battlefield 4 multiplayer and it looks rather good.



  1. Am I the only person here??? Still at work??? Not playing GTA V???
    Unfortunately I can’t watch the BF4 vid with our crap connection, but nice Snatch anyway.

    • Working, not playing, not owning either. Yet.

      • Well I was gonna be playing it when I get home, but I think I’ll be better off leaving it to install whilst I pop for a quick pint. I’ve just realised I can’t download the blimp thing either as my internet hasn’t worked for 5 days now… & if you’re listening Talktalk, I’m telling you its an issue between the master socket and the exchange & I will not pay an engineer call out fee! I’ll climb up the god damn telegraphy poley thingy myself if I have to!

      • Just got word from my wife that she picked it up earlier and has installed so it’s ready to go when I get home. What a woman. :)

  2. Hello I am still here, no intention of getting GTA 5 this financial year.

    Have a free (unintended) poem.

  3. I’m not at work, and I’m not playing GTA either. Damned copy didn’t arrive in the mail today, so I’m playing it cool, putting on my hipster hat and spending the day outside.

  4. I’m currently half way through the install. Once it’s done I’m outta here.

  5. BF4 is looking very good indeed.

  6. Oh ffs, I hope they release GT6 on time and patch the engine sounds in later if they’re not complete. I’ll do the brum brums pre-patch just gimme my pre-ordered game on time!!
