WEEKLY NEWS UPDATE FOR 10TH – 16TH NOVEMBER

Headline Of The Week

It’s been one of, if not the busiest release week of the year for video games these past seven days (although next week might give it a run for its money with the likes of Dragon Age: Inquisition, Far Cry 4 and Grand Theft Auto V all looking for a snug place in your disc drives), but the headlines have been dominated by reports of poor performance across the board on several big name titles. Most notably, matchmaking playlists for Halo: The Master Chief Collection have ran into server issues, both the 3DS and Wii U Sonic Boom games have been ripped to shreds for game breaking exploits and uninspiring gameplay…and there is the curious case of Assassins Creed: Unity – a AAA game released seemingly before it was finished.

Despite mostly positive reviews from the gaming press, Unity has been beset by a number of bugs and glitches across all platforms; developer Ubisoft Montreal have been attacked on pretty much all fronts for problems including players falling through the world allowing them to swim under Renaissance era Paris, characters grabbing onto invisible ledges, and most hilariously/horrifyingly character faces disappearing mid-cut scene.

WEEKLY NEWS UPDATE FOR 28TH APRIL – 4TH MAY

Headline Of The Week

For the second year in a row, Nintendo is to again forgo a traditional presentation at E3 2014 in favour of a digital broadcast. Alongside the Nintendo Direct stream dated for the 10th June (the day after Sony, Microsoft, EA and Ubisoft’s presentations), there will be an invitational Super Smash Bros for Wii U & 3DS tournament between 16 ‘skilled’ (and totally not pre-selected) players at the Nokia Theatre in LA, and footage of the latest games will be broadcast by Nintendo Treehouse live and unedited from the booths on the showfloor.

In related Nintendo news, they really, really want you to buy the upcoming Mario Kart 8 – if you live in Europe and buy the latest installment of the kart racer, by registering your copy of MK8 on the Club Nintendo website before July 31st then you can get a digital download of The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD for free. You could also pick from one of either NintendoLand, New Super Mario Bros U, Game & Wario, Pikmin 3, Sonic: Lost World, The Wonderful 101, Wii U Party, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate or Mario & Sonic At The Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games…but you’d be an idiot to turn down Wind Waker HD.
