What happened today? Deus Ex, that’s what happened. That and a non-football fan getting the shit kicked out of him in the PES 2012 demo. Amazing.
As it’s 4pm, I should finally get off and play one of my most anticipated games of the year, right? If you had asked me this morning if that was the plan, that would have been yes. But i’ve since been transcribing an interesting phone call I had earlier today in relation to it. What is it? You’ll find out in a bit.
In the meantime, news was quiet in the post-gamescom lull, but that didn’t mean it stopped it. Here is said news:
- Featured Content: Pushing boundaries: Gearbox’s Burch talks Borderlands 2
I literally burst out laughing at that Nomad Midget shield bit. Anyone who seen it in Germany will know what I mean. But besides that, Borderlands 2 will be every bit as amazing as its predecessor, if what I seen from Cologne is a pointer. I also spoke to writer Anthony Birch. You know, him of HAWP.
- From Pat: PES 2012 demo – Me versus Man Utd in HD
Words fail me. Just watch.
- CS: GO’s first trailer is live, details drops from playtest
The cross-platform stuff is still interesting enough, going by what I experienced in Portal 2. But keyboard and mouse support for PS3? Okay, I know what version I’n buying.
- Final Fantasy Type-0 delayed by two weeks in Japan
Another two weeks then before my import arrives. Which reminds me, I must place my order down.
- New RAGE video focuses on Gearheads
Skyrim wasn’t the only thing Bethesda dropped on us today. It’s another video of id’s awesome looking new IP
- Pre-TGS Valkyria Chronicles news coming soon
Personally speaking, I hope it’s a PSP HD remaster for PS3 of the two PSP games. And then they bring it west. Please? Please, Sega? I know you’re reading, S.
- Ratchet & Clank: All4One gets new weapons trailer
All of the attention’s on Resistance 3, but that’s not to forget there’s also a new R&C on the way, the first game from Insomniac’s North Carolina studio.
- Asura’s Wrath gets half-hour gameplay video from gamescom
It’s worth it just for the beginning alone.
- Deus Ex launch: Square releases real-life augmentation doc
Watch the site in a bit. Just saying.
- GameStation website reboots with £99 360 offer
This hasn’t swallowed too well with most people from what I can gather on our comments or on Twitter.
- Weekend tickets for PlayStation Access still available
You should probably give this a whazz if there’s still tickets left. Play unreleased games, live music and free drink. Happy weekend.
- Halo 4 Warthog to feature in Forza 4
I think it’s safe to say the Halo4athon is about to kick off
And that’s it. Still one more big thing to come from me in regards to Deus Ex, but after that, that’s exactly how I’m going to be spending my weekend: three total days of Adam Jensen. Boom. That’s the perfect weekend right there.
Have a good one everybody!
