News Snatch: Metro Redux, WWE 2K15 And Really Bad Fakes

So that was summer then, we can all safely retreat back to the sofa for another long winter of gaming with the likes of Watch Dogs, a live action trailer for which can be found just above this text.

The new PlayStation 4 advert is posh but does show Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes “exclusive” content which is now also on Xbox. “Lols!” as our esteemed editor commented.

As much as I hate Vine videos this one is useful, it shows Metro Redux running on PlayStation 4 and that number is the frame rate.

One Pixel Brush worked as concept artists on The Last of Us for Naughty Dog and have released an image which shows a monster than never made it to the game. It seems to be three or four people glued together with fungus, a delightful sight I am sure you will agree.

Also: Ewwww!

Samurai Warriors 4 is coming to the US and Europe this autumn for PS3, PS4, and Vita.

A new trailer for Murdered: Soul Suspect, the PS Blog has loads of info on the game if you want to know more.

Retailer GAME is in rude health and is about to float itself on the stock market once more. The company was delisted when it went in to administration two years ago.

New Game Will Have Better Animations Than The Last One

Some (but not all) characters in Super Smash Bros. will be properly mirrored in the new game, so no matter which way the face their arms and legs will look correct “Now Kirby looks great from any angle,” said said game director Masahiro.

Sony “Maybe” Working On Revised Models For PS3 And PS4

Sony has registered two new PlayStation models, one PS3 the other PS4, with the Indonesian Ministry of Communications. The revisions are probably very minor, perhaps more efficient power supplies.

Gamers have reacted in shock at this headline news, “OMG I can’t believe it!” exclaimed Gerald Bubble from Swindon. “I know they continually revised and tweaked the PS3, and PS2, and PS1 to make them more cost efficient,” he added, “But I never thought they would do the same with the PS4! I am so thankful this news has been reported!”

2K have taken a slightly different approach to marketing the latest WWE game. We all know it’s coming so rather spend a small fortune on press packs and PR bobbins, they just tweeted WWE 2K15 was on the way.

Good news! Netflix is coming to your country! The streaming service will launch in Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and Luxembourg before the end of the year.

Grand Theft Auto V has been blamed once more in the press for saving lives. Wait. What?

Grandad Finn Cullen blacked out whilst driving his car at 117km in Slane, Co Meath, taking his grandson home from a drama class. “I grabbed the wheel and pulled it back out onto the road,” explained 11 year old Charley Cullen. “We met a few cars going by. I had one hand on the steering wheel and the other trying to wake papa.”

Charley told the press that he knew what to do “thanks to skills he used playing Grand Theft Auto.”

Those loveable Lemmings have become the latest inhabitants in LittleBigPlanet. The Lemmings Minipack  includes a Lemming Costume, a Mischievous Lemming Costume and some decorative tools to allow you “play as your favourite type of Lemming.”

Oh come now internet, you really must try harder when making a fake advert like this. Released the same time as Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare? As if. Listed Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer but not Treyarch? Oh dear. Missed out all the little TM and (C) icons after PlayStation and Xbox One (and forgot he capital S in PlayStation)? Fail!

And Finally, things you never, ever want to see: Link snogging Mario.


  1. Ummm, who was letting an 11-year-old play GTA!

    That MW is so fake….they claim it’ll run in full 1080p at 60fps on XBO – confirms it’s fake. :p

    • My thoughts exactly on the 11 year old. Glad no one was seriously hurt, but pretty sure all GTA games (apart from GTA Advance) had an 18+ rating. Surprised that there’s no comment on this in the original article…ok so I have my judgey pants on now…

    • When I worked at Gamestation stopping parents from buying Grand Theft Auto for their young children was a favourite pastime – describing graphically that you could have sex with a prostitute and then that you could kill her to get the money back generally put them off!

      • Wow your town must be a lot nicer and more respectable than mine, you couldn’t deter the parents from buying any graphic or violent games. They would either just scoff at what you’re saying and blow you off, or even take pleasure in the idea of the game and not caring that their child probably shouldn’t be playing it.

        Also Youles all I’ll say is Wolfenstein: The New Order…
