Endweek News – Assassin’s Creed lawsuit not quite finished yet, What is this E3 thing?, a new Gears of War and some truly awesome videos!

It is that time of week where once again I delve into the grim and gritty business of video game news. It’s a cut-throat world out there, a game eat game world. A world in which only the fittest and most awesome games survive. And Call of Duty of course (OOoooh! ZING!). But seriously, it’s not really that bad (well not for everyone) and we’ve got some pretty interesting bits and pieces of news to regale you with today. Also I want to make it clear that the above video is indeed sort of relevant to this post as you shall find out later (if you read through this!)

So, what’s new Gamers?

The Gaming BAFTA’s Awards

This past Friday GAME held the¬†British Academy Video Games Awards for 2011 and I was watching the second half as it streamed live online. In case you missed it there was a rather cringeable moment when Jonathan Ross came on absolutely drunk as anything! I’ve also decided that, in case you missed it (and you can’t really be bothered going through the list of awards over at the official website), that I would help you folks out and post all the awards and various winners here on MMGaming.

Game BAFTA’s

The European chain of stores Game is currently running a British Academy Video games Awards, or BAVTA! Well actually it’s called a BAFTA… but the point stands. Anyway, as part of this they have a massive online poll running to choose what is going to be the Game of the Year of 2011. Anyone can vote in this (or at least anyone in the UK) and you can vote right now at the BAFTA page. So a video game of the year chosen by the people!

I’m already looking forward to the outcome!

Battlefield 3 Launch Trailer

Yeah it’s all in the title of this news post. You can check the trailer after the jump. Is it awesome? Yes it is? Will it be better than CoD, a question I assume every gaming forum in the world right now is beating itself to death with? Who knows. All I know is that I stumbled across the launch trailer for Battlefield first, so that’s what I’ll post. And, just maybe, I am inclined to think Battlefield might well be better. Please don’t get all fanboyish… I’m not saying it will be… I’m only saying… It has jet planes… WHICH IS AWESOME!!
