No time for waffle today there’s a shed load of bobbins to get through; Trailers, release dates, puppet VR games, and probably some boobs. To be honest I haven’t got any boob related news at the time of writing but I expect I can find some before I finish. Anyway, off we go with the launch trailer for Sudden Strike 4.
The Evil Within 2 will not have the letterbox effect found in the original and subsequently patched out. Personally I didn’t find it much of a problem, but lots of people did. The game is also going to have larger areas to explore.

There are no rules anymore, if you can make a movie about emojis then why not a video game adaptation of George Orwell’s literary classic Animal Farm .
“We live in turbulent times where established democracies are coming under attack from all sides,” say the mysterious and currently unnamed developers. “Animal Farm is a literary classic whose original message is more relevant than ever before. We will adapt this story for a new audience on a new medium whilst keeping true to George Orwell’s vision.”
Meanwhile, Deadly Premonition and D4 creator Hidetaka ‘Swery65’ Suehiro has announced his next title, The Good Life. Sadly it’s nothing to do with the classic BBC sitcom, instead you play as a photographer stuck in a quaint English town where all the residents turn into cats at night.
