Sorry about the lack of posts lately, I haven't bought any new games and I have been a bit slack. You can expect a post on Friday AEST. In this post I will give my E3 predictions. I'm not going to just predict what other people are predicting though, you can visit their sites for more certain predictions. I'll be predicting less expecting things, and some probably obvious ones. Now for some quick updates:
-PSN and SOE are still down. A spokesperson from Sony said they hope to fully restore the service by 31st May. Whether this happens or not remains to be seen. Sony have said that there will be a welcome back program which will included 30 days PlayStation Plus (Whatever that is) and it is rumoured that you will get 2 free PlayStation or PSP games. It is unclear whether these will be from a selected group of titles. There is also much debate about how Sony will release games that should have been released during the offline period. Will Sony release them all at once to keep up coming releases stable or push everything back?
-Brink was released last week and it has been getting mixed reactions. Some think it is a really good team shooter and some think it is very repetitive with poor graphics and colour. I'll be getting it eventually, maybe I'll see you guys on there(Xbox Live that is).
-Mortal Kombat 1, 2 and 3 will be released in a bundle for XBLA and PSN(eventually) soon. The pack will sell for about $10.00.
- IGN have bought UGO and 1Up. Head over to ign.com to get the full details.
- Ubisoft have announced a 4th Assassins Creed game. It will be set in Constantinople (modern-day Istanbul) and will feature Altaïr, Ezio and Desmond as playable characters. Expect more to be announced in the coming weeks in the build up for E3.
- Mass Effect 3 and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier have been postponed until early 2012. Expect trailers or gameplay videos at E3 though.
- Dragon Quest X has been announced for Nintendo Wii. No word saying it will be released on DS or 3DS though. Dragon Quest IX was and most of the remakes are being released on DS so I'm surprised X isn't(Yet).
That's all for this week. Happy Gaming.
Don't forget E3 June 7-9.
