Hey there, welcome back to News Snatch, once again it’s time to have a nose through the round file and see what news slipped through the cracks.
It’s been a bit of a rough week or so in the UK, so if you need a little light relief then make sure you read to the very end, I guarantee it will make your day.
Before that, we start with Worms W.M.D which will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC later this year and will feature an extensive single player campaign and both local and online multiplayer for up to 6 players. It also has a lot of wacky weapons which you can see in the trailer above.
This is The Assembly which is also coming to PlayStaton VR later this year.
You’ll face thought-provoking dilemmas with uncertain outcomes that challenge your views of the Assembly and its members, all coming to a head in one of multiple surprising conclusions. Will your actions and their future repercussions save lives… or lead to catastrophe?
Polyphony have revealed that they found the PlayStation 3 a bit of a arse to work with. “The age of the PS3 for us was sort of a nightmare,” said Gran Turismo head honco, Kazunori Yamauchi . “We really had to deal with this situation for a while where, ‘This is what we want to achieve, but all we can do is this.’ So there was a lot of frustration that was built up. The PS3 hardware is something that, at first glance, looks like it’s able to do this certain level of things, but in actuality, it can’t.
“In terms of development, it was really really difficult and the games, after all the development efforts were put into it, were very very low,” he added. “I think it was just that the balance as a piece of hardware wasn’t very good. But the PS4 is so good. This time we’re really able to do and achieve what we want to do, so it’s really fun.”
Battlefleet Gothic Armada is receiving some Space Marines which are “experts at close-ranged battles, sporting well-armoured ships and specialize in aggressive boarding techniques.”
They are also enjoy a glass of wine in whilst watching Countryfile, are skilled in the dark arts of quiche making, and spend their weekends at petting zoos, cuddling the bunny rabbits.
Somny’s latest Greatness Awaits Summer trailer showing a load of games that are not out this summer. Nice one.
After stating firmly that they didn’t like non-approved games on the Rift headset the Oculus team have quietly removed all the DRM. The company told ARSTechnica that it “will not use hardware checks as part of DRM on PC in the future.”
This is Super Mutant Alien Assault and it is arriving on July 12th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Titanfall 2 will feel like a swimming pool. “In the pool are enemies… you’re diving in and out. You’re attacking from one angle, you’re getting out on this side, going around, coming back in, coming out,” explains Game Director Steve Fukuda.
I guess it makes a change from being in a corridor.
Here is Jon Snow covered in balls, doing moody resting face, and being motion captured for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
The recent patch for Rocket League did claim it had “Fixed several Neo Tokyo collision issues that were causing abnormal bounces within the Arena.”
It turns out it did not, Psynoix say sorry and are still working on that one.
The original creators of RuneScape, the Gower brothers, have returned to the game to design a special 15th anniversary quest. It features cabbages, which is nice, because Brassica vegetables are underrepresented in video games.
And Finally, hurrah, it’s another bonkers ‘sexy’ Japanese game! This is Gal*Gun Double Peace which is coming to PS Vita and PS4 in Europe on July 15th and North America on July 19th.
You play Houdai, a typically incompetent high school boy when it come to matters of the heart, who accidentally eats a full power cupid shot and becomes insanely popular with the ladies. Just a normal day for the manly and testosterone fuelled staff at TSA, then.
The game is that you must fend off the sexy ladies by titillating their, uhm, tits. And ass. And everywhere else. The press release mentions a Euphoria shot which it suggests, and I kid you not, you save for “a hairy spot.”
If you like the look of the game then there is a collections edition which includes a collector’s box, artbook, soundtrack, wall scroll, 5 pieces of DLC, and – honestly, I am not making this up – a lovely ‘screen cleaner’. Here is the official description.
Supreme, ULTRA-RARE, extra-soft Mr. Happiness “Screen Cleaner” – gently wipe down your dirty screens for MAXIMUM visibility!
Yes, it really is a screen cleaner for when you’ve played the game and waved hello to the girls with Mr. Happy. Just for the extra ickyness, the screen cleaner is… a pair of panties.
Until next time, tata!
