News Snatch: We Happy Few, Evolve & Brock The Brick

Bricking it.

Well hello there, time for another Snatch rounding up the odd bits of news that tried heroically to have a post of their own, but failed and ended up here. Pity the news, pity it.

First up is a video showcasing observer mode for Evolve which will be arriving as a free update. Take-Two president Karl Slatoff has said he is very pleased with the sales of the game, despite the game only holding first place in the UK charts for one week.

“We’re very pleased. We’ve had an incredibly successful commercial launch with Evolve,” said Karl. “We’re very happy where things are going, particularly on the digital side. Digital has been very strong for us, not only with full game downloads but also the attach rate for our season pass has been very strong.”

Joseph Kosinski, the chap behind Oblivion and Tron: Legacy, is in talks to direct the movie based on Sony’s Gran Turismo franchise. The original script which centred on a video game player turned racing driver (GT Academy: The Movie in all but name) has been dropped in favour of a new story.

The Titanfall DLC that went free the other day will remain free forever.

Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 is a thing with a rather odd live action trailer, and it’s out on Xbox One on March 18th.

A recent update to Dance Central Spotlight has sneaked in a couple of extra characters, namely Borderlands’ Nisha and Claptrap. Rather than drop the characters directly in the to game you have to do some old school button pressing to unlock them.

More Borderlands as episode two of Tales from the Borderlands will launch next week.

Monday: “Visceral Games Says It Would Love to Return to the Dead Space Series” shouts a headline on a website that will not be named.

Wednesday: “Visceral Games Wants to Continue Working on Battlefield Hardline” shouts the headline on the same website.

Any day: You will not find any “news” like this on TSA. A developer liking something they made is not news. A developer “wants to make game X” is not news. A developer “hiring for new AAA game” is not news, it’s what they’re meant to be doing.

All the lovely things come to Driveclub this month, now in a handy video.

Who would like a cuddly brick? Well you are in luck as the official PlayStation merchandise store has launched in the United States and along with with the usual t-shirts and hoodies (some of which are quite tasteful) you can also purchase Brock the Brick from The Last of Us.

And Finally, a load of pre-Alpha screens of We Happy Few have found their way on to the internet.

      I must admit that after laughing at the debacle of a launch and dire server/online performance for a while, I picked DC up for £18 and haven’t looked back. It’s a great game which has been horribly tarnished by the early troubles. It should certainly be considered as a certain BUY by anyone that likes driving games.
      I’m looking forward to the upcoming replay option which will really round off the whole package.
