News Snatch: Pokémon Go, Thomas Was Alone, And Movie News

So then, bar the odd exception (I won’t believe The Last Guardian is out until I have copy in my paws) all the big games have landed which means PR departments around the globe are in full Christmas mode and have got a bit silly. The team selling the Hyper X Cloud Stinger headset are obviously packed with Christmas cheer but are trying a little bit too hard.

Also: Since when have men’s nipples required pixelation?

Meanwhile over at Xbox, you can try your hand that Dead Rising 4 zombie choir keyboard.
The ever present Mr. Bithell joins in the japes.

The latest in a long line of deals which require you to spend an absolute fortune to get a “free” Xbox One is the best yet. Simply spend $999 or more on jewellery at Helzberg Diamonds to claim your free console!

Hmm, I’m pretty sure this is not meant to happen in Dishonored 2.

Neil Druckmann is holding up The Last Of Us movie! Hahahhaha! Oh, wait that’s not funny. “Right now it’s just sitting there,” explained producer Sam Raimi.”They don’t want to move forward, and it’s not my place to say why, and Neil, I think, is in a slight disagreement with them about how things should go so there’s a standstill. And I don’t have the power to move it.”

Neil obviously wants TLOU movie to be faithful to the game so if he doesn’t think it’s going to work then we’re probably better not getting a movie at all rather than a rubbish version that Naughty Dog have not approved.

<To the tune of The News At Ten theme>Obvious News do do de doo de do, Ob-vi-ous News do do de doo do do! News! That is! Obvious! A bing-bong-bing-bong </>

Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Grand Theft Auto publisher Take-Two has said that annual release of games risk burning out the franchise.

“If we took all [of our franchises] and we just turned it into an annualised schedule – leaving everything else to the side – the math says you would be in a better place. But what would it imply?” he said.

“It would imply doubling our development teams. It would imply calling into question our quality. And it would imply the risk that consumers tire of these franchises. One of the things that’s best about Take-Two is our franchises seem to be permanent. They’re beloved and permanent. Whereas our competitors burn off their franchises, which means they have to create new ones, which is incredibly difficult to do.”
You should buy Titanfall 2. It’s awesome. I say so and so do loads of other people in this video.

Paul W.S Anderson, the chap behind all the Resident Evil movies, is making the Monster Hunter movie.

“The central characters are very relatable American characters,” he told Deadline. “You take a person from the ordinary world who thinks they’re in a dead end job, they have no future, they feel like their life’s a failure, it’s going nowhere, like Keanu Reeves in The Matrix. It’s about a normal American who gets dragged into this parallel world, this Monster Hunter world. Then eventually the parallel world ends up coming to our world. So you have the creatures from the Monster Hunter world invading our world.”

Ditto is now available to catch in Pokémon Go. However, you won’t find him showing up on you map, he is hiding behind other Pokémon so you will still have to check every Zubat in the neighbourhood.

And Finally, Oliver Heldens has a new music video out and it has the always excellent Ida Corr doing some warbling on it. It’s also linked to Watch Dogs 2.

  1. That Dishonored glitch is one of the funniest I’ve seen :D,indeed Titanfall 2 is a bloody excellent game.

  2. RIP Monster Hunter. You had a damn good chance of having a decent film but Paul Anderson happened. Oh yes, welcome to “LOOK HOW AWESOME MY WIFE IS! SEE HER? SHE IS SUPERIOR TO EVERYONE ELSE! SHE IS THE HERO!” movies. And for fuck’s sake, “American” characters. That’s not what I think when I think of Monster Hunter. How the…… it’s…. fantasy… I….. *flips the desk*

    I…. erm…. what? What is that advert meant to……

    Adverts are weird and i thought the damn Digestives one was creepy. It is. BISCUITS DO NOT HAVE PUPPIES OR KITTENS COMING OUT OF THEM! STOP IT! STOP! STOP!

    TLOU getting a movie? First time i heard of it or i forgot it existed. Really? It’s getting a movie? Erm…. TLOU doesn’t need one as it’s excellent and well, the film genre has I am Legend. I just know TLOU will be average at best.

    I would be very sarcastic at the diamonds deal but this requires all of TSA to be very sarcastic at the same time due to how much of a brilliant idea it is. Literally outside the realm of any one man or woman’s snark capacity.
