News Snatch: Jamestown Plus, NHL15 And Barack Obama

Luigi death stare!

Welcome back dear Snatchlings, once again I have more bobbins news and silly videos for you starting with Mortal Kombat X, now with a proper soundtrack and none of that hippity-hoppity rap stuff.

Yager, the chaps behind the rather excellent Spec Ops: The Line and also some seriously impressive beardage have something to show at E3.

Jamestown Plus is coming to PlayStation 4 this summer with new ships, new levels and a remastered soundtrack. If you have not heard of the game, it is a 4-player cooperative shoot-em-up that takes place on 17th-Century British Colonial Mars.

Of course it does.

Battlefield 4 has been patched on PS3 with the following tweaks and improvements:

  • Improved/reduced explosion induced camera shake
  • Rental server bug fixes
  • Character collision improvements
  • Reduced object damage mismatch between client/server.
  • Fix for explosion pack not being able to be shot sometimes
  • Improvements for client side packet loss
  • Added controller option to swap functionality of the bumper and trigger buttons
  • Carrier – Invisible walls stopping bullets fix

Call of Duty: Ghosts has also been patched on PS3.


  • Overall anti-cheat improvements.

New Features

  • Golden Knife: Faster melee weapon available at prestige 5.
  • Golden PDW: Automatic firing secondary available at prestige 10.
  • New Multiplayer lobby music.


  • Reverted changes associated with the Grenade Turret
  • 5 new Relics
  • 5 new Prestige Ranks

Luigi’s death stare from Mario Kart 8 has made headline news in the United States.

The Last Tinker: City of Colours is coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, colourful family friendly gaming, nary a headshot in the sight.

Media Molecule will not be at E3 – boo – but ex Sony head honcho, Jack Tretton, will be. Spike TV have booked Jack as a “special correspondent” and he will be commentating on all of the big presentations.


Remember Project V1? We got all excited about a mystery multiplatform game? Turns out it’s an E3 2014 web show featuring a bloke in a helmet.

Murdered: Soul Suspect is out this week, and if that isn’t a good excuse to scare the bejesus out of some Americans, I don’t know what is.

Now it’s time for a new feature in Snatch which I am naming “Presidents Review Video Games”. I know that’s not particularly snappy, but it’s a work in progress so bear with me.

To begin with we have a man who I met in a lift in Hawaii (it’s where he’s from, he was taking a holiday back to see his grandma), also known as the Leader of the free World, President Barack Obama. He has been on another trip, this time to Poland and the last time he visited he was given a video game to play.

The last time I was here, Donald (Polish prime minister) gave me a gift, the video game developed here in Poland that’s won fans the world over, The Witcher. I confess, I’m not very good at video games, but I’ve been told that it is a great example of Poland’s place in the new global economy. And it’s a tribute to the talents and work ethic of the Polish people as well as the wise stewardship of Polish leaders like prime minister Tusk

This is the first screen of NHL15, presumably from a next gen build.

A Gamecube controller adapter has been announced for Wii U.

And Finally, Call of Duty: Ghosts meets Frozen.

    I’m very excited to see what Yates have, I wonder if it will be another shooter or maybe something different

    I’m glad the Tinker game is coming to consoles, saves me the trouble of buying it on PC and never playing it, like most my PC games.
