Endweek News

You will have, obviously noticed that last week we had no news on Sunday and that this week we actually had no news on Wednesday either. And there are very good reasons for both of these things. As you might be aware I am in the middle of my exam period and I’m finding it a little more difficult to make the time to do the news. But don’t worry, after next week things ought to return to pretty much normal as both me and Tim will be finished.

And so we’ll need to come up with an excuse other than “We are lazy sons-of-bitches!”

Also, we are still playing around with our new “4 posts per week” system and have decided to only have one session of news on most weeks. While you might still see some Midweek News at some point in the future, for now we are going to be doing two reviews a week, on Wednesdays and Fridays. Anyway, “reasons” over! Let’s see what’s been happening in the world of video games for the last two weeks. Continue reading

Endweek News – A writer sues Ubisoft, Halo 4 get’s a release date, Trailers for God of War and 0x10c are everywhere and Arkham City content get’s teased

Once again (due to the excuses I lined out last week) I again failed to post any Midweek News this past week. As well as that, this session of Endweek News was hastily researched and thrown together, you’ll just have to forgive me for these things as I have been rather busy. That said most of the news from this past week is actually trailers and other videos, so less reading for you guys. I will say no more on it but jump straight into the news!

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.

PS3’s Birthday

Today marks the 5th Birthday of the PS3 in Europe.

I’ve always had a rocky relationship with the PS3. I never got it at it’s release, no saw any need to. As far as I was concerned the Xbox 360 was superior and the PS3 simply way too expensive. This poor relationship continued (even after I realised that the PS3’s technical specs were better than the 360’s in every way) due to the initial lack of games which made use of the PS3’s excellent Blu-Ray technology.

No XBox 720 or PS4

I write this with a heavy heart and a slow hand. I didn’t get much news out yesterday or the day before, and for that I make no excuses and promise to be back on the ball over the Weekend. One thing I couldn’t simply let pass without posting (even for a few hours) is the fact that in a press release to Kotaku Microsoft have announced that they have NO plans to announce or reveal a successor to the XBox 360 at E3 or at any other time this year.

All my excitement and rumour-mongering has come to naught as Microsoft crush my dreams for a true Next Gen Console sometime in the near future. Sony also announced that they wouldn’t be revealing a PS4 any time soon either which was, while not a massive a blow as the loss of the 720, also a disappointment.

The Last of US Sceenshot

Game Informer has released a trio of screenshots from Naughty Dog’s upcoming survival shooter. The screenshots haven’t revealed very much other than the game is very pretty and that it will, at least partly, be set in Pittsburgh in the US. You can see the other two, as well as a little more, new, information about the game after the jump.
