Don’t Hate the Game, Hate the Player

Quarterly Reports

I won’t bore you with the details so here are the summaries: Sony‘s down, UbiSoft is up and Microsoft is weathering the storm thanks to price drop.
Voila 🙂

Deus Ex 3 News…Sort of

In an interview with Edge, Jean-Francois Dugas said that the console version of the game was nothing certain right now. The PC version is a certitude but he said they would not release a watered-down adaptation especially concerning the interface and gameplay which shouldn’t bring the game down.
He was also quoted saying that he thought the first Deus Ex was too slow and didn’t feature any memorable scenes.
I wonder if we played the same game but we’ll see what this means for the sequel when more details are revealed.

Ys Book I & II DS Confirmed in the US

Atlus confirmed today that the game will be released in North America on February 10. The game will feature updated 3D graphics, new levels, enemies, and equipment, optional stylus controls (thank God it’s optional), local multiplayer, and remixed music.
Check out the trailer here.

Left 4 Dead Delayed

Valve has announced that they have postponed their release date to coincide with the anniversary of Half-Life. The game will come out on November 20 for PC and Xbox 360.
Doug Lombardi mentioned that the game could be ported to the PS3 since the console finally has a bigger number of them in home living rooms.

Harry Pitfall Jr. is Back

One of the most successful games from Activision for the Atari 2600 back then, Pitfall subsequently got some pretty good 2D sequels. The forays into 3D however, are not as fondly remembered.
In any case Pitfall: The Big Adventure has been announced on the Wii. Wait and see as they say.

EA & Take-Two Part…….

The two continue their mating dance but in a more private fashion. EA has stated that they are not going to publicly give any offer and that from now on everything will be negotiated privately once Take-Two is ready to sit down and make a deal. Which probably will not be until after GTA IV is released for the PC this fall.

This Week in RPGs

The numerous RPGs coming out this week will either have you jump for joy or cry at the amount of time you wish you had to play them….or, most likely, both.

  • Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice for the PS3 came out this Monday
  • Ys Book I & II on the Wii VC came out this Monday as well
  • Tales of Vesperia for the Xbox 360 comes out today
  • Infinite Undiscovery for the Xbox 360 is coming out Friday

Battleforge Delayed

Phenomic has changed the release date from End 2008 to a mere 2009. The game is a mix between an online strategy game and a card game, offering 40 maps for up to 12 players to battle on.
