Endweek News (unfortunately late) – Much releases and trailers, some early 0x10c screenshots, a new Borderlands character and some Bullshit Excuses

A number of you might have noticed the conspicuous absence of any Midweek News this past week. Well I fear those sharp-eyed amongst you to have spotted that will probably spot similar things again over the coming weeks due to a number of excuses that we at MMGaming have. Very good excuses actually, I’ll have you know! We can’t spend all our time playing games and talking about them…

Ye gods! What the hell am I saying?!?

Levity aside, it’s actually true. Nick and Josh both have commitments outside of the world of gaming which make the time they can spend on MMGaming fairly limited and me and Tim have now, once again, entered that foul time period known to all in University… Yes my friends we are once again preparing for exams and Tim at least won’t be posting AT ALL while doing so. Coincidentally we both finish on the 14th of May so you should see a return to normal around then.

Diablo 3 to launch with no PvP

Lead designer of upcoming Diablo 3, Jay Wilson, has officially announced, with the full might of Blizzard behind him that Diablo 3 will be releasing without it’s Player versus Player mode.

He said that essentially it was not working to the standards that they had set themselves and that delaying the game purely for the PvP would ruin the release for an awful lot of people (like me) who are looking forward to the co-op and single-player campaigns. I imagine that all is not lost and that PvP will be released as (hopefully free) DLC at some point in the near future after the games release.

But yeah, it would seem that with everything else “just about complete” the PvP was not yet quite up to the same standard as the rest of the game and-

Mass Effect 3 videos launched from the Normandy

Bioware have launched a whole FIVE new videos related to all things Mass Effect 3. They show of the Player Choices, the Co-op multiplayer, the combat and action, the personalisation you can do your guns and your Shepard and the enemies you will be fighting.

I actually haven’t watched ANY of them. You see, all the sites I’ve seen these videos posted on mentions Spoilers (as I am now) and I don’t want to spoil any of this great game. That said I thought I ought to tell you folks about them in case you do want to see some of the new stuff. Again, that said I actually had a bit of trouble finding the various videos on Youtube. So I’ll just refer you to Eurogamer who have all 5 videos set out in a nice format for you to watch at your discretion! Enjoy!

Syndicate looks Awesome

Something which has literally just jumped onto my radar is the up-coming FPS Syndicate, a reboot of a 1993 tactical shooter. Due out on the 21st of February and made by Starbreeze Studios it’s a game which apparently combines the cool sci-fi feel of Mass Effect and the intense shooting action of Crysis.

Having had a look at the announcement trailer and a trailer for the 4-player co-op (both of which solely feature in game-footage) I have to say it really does look pretty fucking awesome. I’d definitely suggest keeping an eye on this and watching the trailers after the jump!
