I still think the Far Cry 4 cover guy looks like a Saints Row 4 stunt double.
A Far Cry 4 preorder screen that briefly appeared on Uplay revealed that players will take on the role of a Nepalese expatriate caught up in a civil war against an oppressive dictator.

Not a terribly surprising situation but one that clearly isn't doing the Kickstarter any good.
Amplitude belongs to Sony and for that reason and various others, Harmonix says it has to be a PlayStation exclusive.

A fine example of some of the many things wrong with copyright laws in the modern era.
It turns out that Commander Chris Hadfield had permission to use the David Bowie classic for just one year, and that year is now over.

Kiwanuka review! Pretty good little game, especially if you can take a peek beneath the surface.

X Rebirth tries again! Will Egosoft get it right this time, or will it merely prove the old adage that you can't patch out shit?
X Rebirth 2.0: Secret Service Missions is a "massive overhaul" of Egosoft's sprawling, troubled space simulator.

Overstated capitalization allowances, Dave.
The Hong Kong-based Deep Knowledge Ventures says VITAL is the first artificial intelligence to be appointed to a corporate board of directors.

Someone on Facebook posted a very good comment about this: If you plan for a zombie apocalypse, it'll cover pretty much everything.
CONPLAN 8888, the United States Strategic Command's "Counter-Zombie Dominance" plan for dealing with the rise of the undead, is not a joke.

Harmonix claims it does not actually have a Scrooge McDuck vault full of cash. NOT BUYING IT.
If you've ever wondered why a rich game developer like Harmonix needs a Kickstarter to fund a game, PR director John T. Drake is happy to explain.

This looks possibly interesting - more interesting than another Duke Nukem game, anyway.
The lawsuit between Gearbox and 3D Realms means Duke Nukem is out, and Shelly "Bombshell" Harrison is in.
