A few weeks back, God of War creator David Jaffe teased a new God of War via his Twitter account. He was trolling and had split the “reveal” across two tweets that, when read together, discussed a God of War ice statue. Whatever. Turns out Sony is working on a new God of War anyway, as creative main man Cory Barlog said it straight during a God of War retrospective panel. He didn’t want to go into details, and it seemed like he wasn’t really supposed to announce anything yet, as tweets were deleted shortly afterwards. Except for this one from Sony Santa Monica; it’s still there. The game, he  confirmed, will not be a prequel, so who exactly Kratos has left to kill is anyone’s guess. Maybe he’ll start murdering deities from a different religion? Don’t expect anything for a while though; just hold onto the knowledge that a new game is coming… eventually.

Holy balls! Capcom just dropped the news that Street Fighter V is coming. If that news wasn’t big enough, Capcom also revealed that the game will be a PlayStation 4 and PC exclusive. Whaaaaa?! It’s likely just a timed exclsuive for Sony, much like Rise of the Tomb Raider is for Microsoft. For now details are scarce, but there is a reveal teaser that shows off the game’s logo and a tagline of “Rise Up”. We’re battling to find a version of the video that isn’t “private”, but we’ll update this as soon as we do.

UPDATE: teaser trailer! Hooray! Also note that this video was leaked early and Capcom hasn’t officially announced anything as yet. That also means you should probably watch the below video before it gets yanked from YouTube.


Double Fine Productions has announced that the anticipated second part of point-and-click adventure Broken Age will be available sometime in early 2015. The news came via a forum post on the developer’s website. According to that post, the team has hit the alpha stages for both protagonists Vella and Shay’s parts of the game. Voice-over recordings still needs to happen, and the game’s finale still needs to enter the alpha stage, but with the team’s ranks swelling, progress is on track for early 2015. You can read our impressions on the first act of the game right over here.

It’s taken Ron Gilbert and Garry Winnick less than a week to collect more than $375,000 to fund their oldschool point-and-click adventure game, Thimbleweed Park. As of late last night the project exceeded its Kickstarter goal with pledges from more than 10,000 backers. “I am at a loss for words,” Ron Gilbert said in an update. “The support has been overwhelming and it’s making us giddy.” The team now looks forward to nailing down some of the loftier stretch goals, with the final one being full voice-overs for the game if pledges hit the $625, 000 mark.

Here’s some refreshing news: developer Turtle Rock Studios has promised that they will not charge Evolve players for DLC maps. This news came about during a video interview with IGN during which creative director Phil Robb said that the team didn’t want to dilute the player base. “First thing we said was we can’t break the community up, so all of our maps will be free. We never want anyone to get booted off of a server because they haven’t bought something.” Hooray!

Yep, that’s right: Just Cause 3 has transitioned from a thing that had some leaked images but that nobody was officially talking about, to a thing that had some leaked images but that Square Enix is now officially talking about. The game is heading to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime in 2015. Those leaked images from a few weeks back hinted at a free-to-play game riddled with microtransactions. Developer Avalanche Studios has since gone on record to say that those images we totally old and that Just Cause 3 is a full retail product that will maybe have DLC post launch, but definitely won’t have microstransactions. Hooray!

Good news, Sims nerds: the free content update that brings pools back to The Sims 4, is now live and ready for you to download via Origin. It weighs in at just under 300MB.

Towards the end of June this year, EA and Maxis made the unpopular announcement that pools and toddlers had been cut from the game. They tried to follow up that announcement by saying the cut content helped them to make a better Sims 4. Shortly after the game released, EA announced that pools would make a return via a free content update.

Ubisoft’s “last-gen” Assassin’s Creed release for 2014 was originally only heading to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The final chapter in the Kenway trilogy has now been confirmed for PC as well. The game will hit the Glorious Master Race’s platform sometime in early 2015.

Ubisoft’s open-world racing simulator, The Crew, has been delayed to 02 December. That last sentence was pretty much just an expanded version of the headline, but thanks to the constraints of journalism, I’ve got to expand on things a bit. So, I guess this is where I tell you that the reason for the delay is because Ubisoft wants to run another closed beta on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. This will allow them to get more player feedback and fine-tuning before launch. That second closed beta will start in November; if Ubisoft is feeling particularly mean they could make it 11 November… when the game was first supposed to launch.

Ah, it’s another classic coming of age story: a mum gives a young boy his grandfather’s credit card to help her buy ebooks on her tablet. Young boy ties the credit card details to his own iTunes account and proceeds to spend a RIDICULOUS amount of money on in-app purchases. Boy gets found out and claims that he didn’t know he was spending actual money. Kids!

Still, we’re pretty sure developer Machine Zone is chuffed with the little windfall of €37, 000.00 from their in-app purchases in Game of War: Fire Age. On a side note: is there a Shutterstock-equivalent for game names or something? Because Game of War: Fire Age sounds like it should’ve been generated by some online company like that.
