Greetings one and all, apologies for the lack of Snatches I have been rather busy with the day job. Anyways, video games and stuff, starting with a tech video for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
Gameplay from Dead Island: Epedemic, the rather odd spin off from the main Dead Island games
Bungie have explained to IGN why you can dance and sit down in Destiny.
You can dance because the communication in Destiny is in some ways non-verbal; we have enough experience with online games to know that sharing voice chatter in games needs to be a very intimate, consensual agreement.
At the same time, this game is social and co-operative and so you will encounter people in the wild who you want to co-operate with. Now, maybe that’s to say thank you or to point to something or even just to sit down to indicate to someone that you’re fetching another beer, so the dance is just a little reminder that at the end of the day we are making a game and that it’s fun.
Bandai Namco have updated the website for forthcoming PS Vita game, Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth. Check out the screens which show Agumon and Gabumon.
“We will continue to support the PS3 through first and third parties as long as there is a good business there for us,” say Sony.
Look, it’s the Hitler loving Nazi Charlie Brooker, as seen in Sniper Elite 3.
Grand Theft Auto V on Xbox 360 has been modded to make it first person.
What could more exciting that Goat Simulator? Why, Rock Simulator of course! Yes, that is rock as in the geological things, not the type of music.
For a long time, there has been one game missing from the market, a genuine rock simulator. I am here for you today to introduce you to Rock Simulator 2014. This simulator is a rock enthusiasts dream. You can watch beautiful rocks in any location in the world. From grass plains to salt flats, there are dozens of hand designed BEAUTIFUL environments.
Dragon Age: Inquisition is to feature the first ever “fully gay” character, a poor choice of words for which the developer has now apologised for.
So hurrah then, go the gays and inclusivity and stuff, Lead Series Writer David Gaider will now explain his back story.
Dorian is gay — he is, in fact, the first fully gay character I’ve had the opportunity to write. It added an interesting dimension to his back story, considering he comes from a place where “perfection” is the face that every mage puts on and anything that smacks of deviancy is shameful and meant to be hidden. Dorian’s refusal to play along with that façade is seen as stubborn and pointless by his family, which has contributed to his status as a pariah.
So the gay character is the pariah and “smacks of deviancy”. Excellent work, games industry, excellent work.
And Finally, a rather amusing EA Sports UFC glitch. I’m off to sashay down the red carpet at the Transformers: Age of Extinction premiere, I’ll give Marky Mark a big hug on your behalf. Tata!
