Surprise! Assassin’s Creed 3 PC delayed

By Shan S Jun 23 2012 add comment

Ubisoft does it again! A Eurogamer source claims that the game will be released in November, leaving PC gamers to watch from the sidelines once again. Speculations have begun even before the release of the third installment, so this doesn’t come as a surprise.
“We don’t comment on rumors. The Windows PC release date is still to be announced,” Ubisoft says. That sounds absolutely assuring, doesn’t it?
On the bright side…. well, there is no bright side until the confirmation.

I won’t be smug about this but Warren Spector might’ve taken these words right out of my mouth. The Deus Ex creator tells GamesIndustry.biz, “The ultraviolence has to stop. We have to stop loving it. I just don’t believe in the effects argument at all, but I do believe that we are fetishizing violence, and now in some cases actually combining it with an adolescent approach to sexuality. I just think it’s in bad taste. Ultimately I think it will [...]

For the first time in 37 years, Microsoft is launching a computer device under their own brand (instead of having other folks like HP, Dell, Asus, etc do it) and according to the latest headlines, the New York Times says that’s going to happen on Monday. Yes this Monday. June the 18th. No word on specifications, price, features or even a name for Microsoft’s upcoming tablet… in fact there’s nothing but a date being mentioned at this point in time.
It’s [...]

In a leaked 56 slide PowerPoint presentation on document hosting site Scribd (where said document was since taken offline ‘at the request of Covington & Burling LLP’, a law firm who coincidentally, or not, has Microsoft listed as one of their clients), the internet discovered that Microsoft seems to have had plans since 2010 to make 2013 a year highlighting their Xbox console platform.
The document makes a reference to an ‘Xbox 720′ which is said to feature new stuff such [...]

E3: The Last of Us gameplay preview

By Shan S Jun 5 2012 add comment

Naughty Dog has succeeded in impressing me once again with the latest game footage of The Last of Us, a post-apocalyptic third-person video game, shown during the E3. The video features Joel and Ellie, the two survivors, exploring (presumably) the ruined city of Pittsburgh. It was an excellent showcase of beautiful scenery and graphics. Along the way, the duo encounter a group of hunters, survivors who are hostile towards other humans. The action sequence was fast-paced, realistic and absolutely thrilling.
