Endweek News – Seb’s Top Five

Welcome folks, welcome to the Endweek News! This is your weekly segment of SOME things gaming. I say “some” things because, frankly, I have neither the time nor the botheredness to actually post everything of gaming related interest every week and so I will be trimming off the fat and the sliiiightly less interesting stories in favour of the Top Five stories of the week! Welcome to the Endweek News – Seb’s Top Five!

So I was ill over the weekend and am only just now putting the finishing touches on this and posting it… Trust me when I say other than a few little things this was ready to be posted on Sunday. Apologies for the poor start. Continue reading

Catch-Up News – Catching up from a time long since past…

I have no excuses of any real merit as to why I have not posted any News for the last two months and a half. Minus a week that I spent on Holiday without internet and the few days it took to move into my new student flat I really could have been posting Endweek News without any real issues.

Seeing as it has actually been over a month since I last posted any form of News the prospect of posting EVERY piece of interesting News during that time makes me go pale with terror. I’ve posted long News posts before BUT I would very much rather avoid having to write out 10,000 words which, let’s be honest here, few people would ever struggle through (no matter how interesting the content). Instead, I did have a few tidbits I had collected with the intention of posting (but never got round to it) from in between our last post (on the 6th) and the present.

Hopefully the interest level here will make up for the fact that most of them come really rather late…

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.

Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition

So it turns out that the teaser website Baldursgate.com was in fact teasing for an Enhanced Edition of Baldur’s Gate. The developers, Beamdog have said that this won’t just be a simple “repackaging” of the original game but that they will be adding in new and original content as well as a big update to the Infinity Engine with “a variety of modern improvements”.

Not only that, but Beamdog will also be doing the same with Baldur’s gate II: Shadows of Amn.

Baldur’s Gate shenanigans

Something interesting appears to be happening over at Baldursgate.com. While nothing more than a teaser image with some very nostalgia inducing music at the moment there has been confirmation from Trent Oster and his team at Beamdog that SOMETHING is in the works. And that something is Baldur’s Gate related, but not related to the Baldur’s Gate: Complete Edition.

Some have suggested that it could be the sign of an HD version of Baldur’s Gate in the works. Me? I honestly can’t even speculate right now and so all I can say is that I will keep abreast of any interesting developments. While I never really properly got into Baldur’s Gate as I was too young to properly appreciate it when it came out I will say I have fond memories of it and new developments do tickle my interest, if only slightly…
