News Snatch: TrackMania Turbo, Gears Of War: Ultimate Edition And Sega
Aloha kākou, welcome once again to a round of bits and bobs of video games news. First up we have nice little behind the scenes video that shows hows The Coalition are reshooting some of the cut scenes for Gears of War: Ultimate Edition.

Toy Soldiers: War Chest is trying to beat LEGO Dimensions for the trophy for “Weirdest Combinations Of Characters”, the latest two armies to join the fight are lead by G.I. Joe’s Cobra Commander, and a team of assassin’s captained by Ezio.

Ayrton Senna has joined Angry Birds Go. Of course he has.

Breach & Clear: Deadline emerges from Early Access on July 21st for £14.99, and will include a new co-op mode.

Kudos to Sega for admitting their faults, including putting release dates before the quality of the their games.

“I’ve been talking to the employees about how we should start putting serious consideration into quality from this point on,” said Sega CEO and president Naoki Satomi. “Especially in North America and Europe, where it’s always been more of a focus on schedules, I believe that if we can’t maintain quality, it would be better to not release anything at all.”

“We did our best to build a relationship of mutual trust with older fans of Sega, but looking back, there’ve been some titles that have partially betrayed that [trust] in the past 10 years,” he added.

In case you missed the announcement, TrackMania Turbo is coming to PS4 and Xbox One, here is a preview of two of the tracks.
In move that literally everyone saw coming, Ken has been announced for Street Fighter V. Not to sure about the new hair though…

There’s a new Rayman game, Rayman Adventures, but don’t get excited it’s for smartphones and tablets.

Microsoft won’t be attending the annual Tokyo Game Show this September. Possibly because they haven’t sold any consoles in the country.

And Finally,DONTNOD Entertainment recently visited BAFTA, London, where they spoke in detail about Life Is Strange in a BAFTA Showcase.  That’s it from me for a couple of weeks, I’m off to the other side of the planet for a holiday. Tara!


  1. I’m guessing you’re off for your usual trip to Hawaii, enjoy! :)

  2. Trackmania is looking excellent! Apart from the DD mode, can’t be arsed with that, sounds like Pacific Rift in cars but without monsters or Idris Elba. I like the business of the environments and the cars looks wonderful, the island one is a bit Batman Tumbler-esque. I might put a preorder in!

  3. To be fair Ken has been omitted from previous Street Fighter related games.

    • Really? I was pretty certain he had been in every numbered Streetfighter & most of the spin offs & crossover titles (although not all I don’t think).

      He’s a fan favourite (much like Ryu). It would be weird if they didn’t have him & the internet would go into rage mode I would suspect.
