We entered into October this week, and the next-gen consoles are approaching very quickly. However, Grand Theft Auto Online launched this week, and Beyond: Two Souls releases next week as well. As always, we also had a slew of news articles and editorials this week.
Editorials, News, and Reviews
To start the month, we told you of three games Single Players should look forward to this month. Also, I talked about what the dominant genre of the next-gen will be. David Nelson ranted about online meltdowns because of Grand Theft Auto Online‘s server problems. In this week’s Only Speaking Professionally, Lachlan gave his view on the comments section as well. Finally, with the unfortunate news of Tom Clancy’s death, our newest writer – Simon Squire – let us relive the past 26 years of his games.
As for this week’s news, Ryse: Son of Rome‘s graphical power was revealed, and Kinect 2.0 will allow commentary over game clips. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag‘s next-gen release date was revealed and the lead writer for Assassin’s Creed announced that there are no plans for a modern Assassin’s Creed as well. New news of The Last of Us‘s DLC was released, and Guerrilla Games confirmed that they are working on a new IP. Keiji Inafune’s Mighty No. 9 quadrupled its Kickstarter goal, and the reveal trailer for Sniper Elite 3 was released. There will be beta access for people who pre-order Destiny, the Battlefield: Bad Company series will eventually make a return, and Deus Ex: Universe was announced. Finally, a Half Life 3 trademark was secured, although it could possibly be a hoax, and a Portal 3 trademark was secured and authenticated.
As I mentioned earlier, we have a new writer for the site. Everyone welcome Simon Squire to the site!
After the mess with the launch of Grand Theft Auto Online, this week should be filled with that as well as the launch of Beyond: Two Souls. As always, there will be many editorials and news articles as well.
Catch you guys next week and keep gaming!
