News Snatch: Dragon Age: Inquisition, The Division And Raving In Killzone

Right then, more news in bite size pieces, perfect for those wishing to lose a few gaming pounds before hitting the beach, or something. First up, some gameplay from Dragon Age: Inquisition, taken from the E3 demo.


A retailer has listed Resident Evil: Revelations 2 and DmC Devil May Cry Ultimate, both for next gen consoles.

Microsoft want to get vigorous with you, the saucy beasts. “Microsoft will continue to vigorously innovate and delight gamers with Xbox,” explained Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella to his minions in a company email.

“We also benefit from many technologies flowing from our gaming efforts into our productivity efforts,” he added. “Core graphics and NUI in Windows, speech recognition in Skype, camera technology in Kinect for Windows, Azure cloud enhancements for GPU simulation and many more. Bottom line, we will continue to innovate and grow our fan base with Xbox while also creating additive business value for Microsoft.”

Another E3-based video, as the Ubiblog shows off The Division, in which you can discover “the mid-crisis setting, the compelling characters, and the open-world RPG gameplay in our candid conversation with Game Director Ryan Barnard.”

Bandai Namco nabbed the publishing rights for Project CARS a few weeks back and have confirmed a November release for the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions of the game.

The Wii U version has been held back in until 2015, so good luck on that ever see the light of day.

Knack 2 might be a thing if PS4 wizard Mark Cerny has his way, but first he has an indie-ish game to make.

“One of the projects I’m trying to kick off is a so-called ‘indie title’,” he told IGN. “It won’t really be an indie title because it’ll be fully funded, but it’ll be nice to have a project where the scope is small enough that I’ll know the names of everybody on the team, which is really hard to do these days now that you’ve got 100, 200, 300 people internal plus everyone outside the company.”

The Battlefield 4 Dragon’s Teeth DLC is an infantry focused expansion pack with urban all-out war in dense Asian Pacific cities. Which is posh way of saying “shoot people in the head”.

Danish retailer has listed Grand Theft Auto V next gen for release for Friday November 14th, or at least they did before they put the date back to December 31st now.

Mega Metagross joins the fight in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, which is very exciting if you like this sort of thing.

Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 has been spotted in a rating by the Australia Classification System. I thought Ninjas were meant to be stealthy?

Over a quarter of popular YouTube gamers (those with over 5,000 subscribers) have been paid to promote a game, but may not have revealed they have done so. Legally they are obliged to make it very clear, in visual and audio form, that some form of payement has been made.

Amazingly, since the publication of the article on Gamasutra, the author has been contacted by a number of developers who have said that YouTubers have asked for a percentage revenue of a game they promote.

Xbox One now supports trial and unlock demos, so future titles will be able to make use of the feature.

And Finally, a very special “And Finally” because it is all my own work. I have had a few days holiday and, as you might expect, that included a bit of Killzone Shadow Fall. This included a point at which it went a bit wonky.



  1. Goddammit! Why are the BF4 updates always released on Steak Night?!

  2. Gotta say, Inquisition looks better each time I see it :)

  3. That killzone video is totally bonkers! Wtf happened there?

    • The dangers of Lemsip, my friend. Just say “no”, kids.

  4. Inquisition is pre-ordered and Annual Leave booked so I’ve got 10 uniterrupted days to complete it.

    At work tonight so left Dragons Teeth downloading, should be up and running when I get home at 02:30BST Just hope there aren’t lag issues like there has been on every other premium release. (Dice = It’s a Hate/Love thing)

  5. November 14th?! I was hoping GTA V would be out September or early October
