Call of Duty not Going Back to WWII

For the greater part of its lifespan, the Call of Duty franchise has been a World War II shooter, taking players from the shores of Normandy to the snowy fields of Russia, all during the second War to End All Wars. Recently however, the series has found massive success by moving into the present, and the Modern Warfare branch has proven to be immensely popular. Now, with Black Ops set during the Cold War it seems like Call of Duty may be leaving Hitler's War behind, a suspicion all but confirmed by Treyarch community manager Josh Olin. "For us, I don't think we would go back because we've done a lot of World War II. I'm not saying that the genre's done," Olin stated. "It would be important that, if there ever were to be another game set in the World War II era, it would have to be something that's fresh and new. You still have to by that code and do something players haven't seen before." More after the break. Read More


Another Pathetic MMO Addiction Lawsuit

Another day, another pathetic lawsuit from an MMO gamer who simply didn't know when to quit. What is it about MMOs, specifically Lineage 2, in this instance, that can keep a man playing for 20,000 hours over a five year period? Do the math; there are approximately 43,800 hours in one five year period. That's about 11 hours a day, every single day, of play time. Is that even possible? Didn't this guy have a job? Hit the jump to keep reading. Read More


Nintendo Download - 12/28/09 - Prepare for '10 with 10 New Downloadable Games from Nintendo

...oh. Oh my. This... this is all so rather unexpected. Well, not all of it. We knew Pilotwings was promised for 2009, so it had to be today. And truthfully, it could probably have carried the day alone. But no, we get more. It's almost like Christmas 1991 all over again (despite not getting my Super NES until 1992) as we not only have Pilotwings on the Virtual Console, but the 16-bit love-letter that is Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth as well for the expected 1,000 points. On top of that, DSiWare gets The Oregon Trail, which some of you no doubt remember playing on your school's Apple II back in elementary school and watching everyone die of dysentery (as an aside, I still want a WiiWare version that uses Miis). On top of Pilotwings, Castlevania, and The Dysentery Trail, there's also the WiiWare title RABBIDS Lab, which lets you customize and tease your very own Ubi-bunny inside your Wii Remote for 500 Wii Points. And if all of that isn't enough for you, there's still more. Check it out in the press release after the cut. Read More


OTX Data Shows Xbox 360 Console Defections to PlayStation 3 for Holiday Sequels

While Ken might be baffled by the number of people who are going to buy Modern Warfare 2 on the PlayStation 3 over the Xbox 360 (see Editor's Note in the sidebar), it would seem that such a development does not come as a surprise to OTX's GamePlan Insights. Data they've provided to Gamasutra shows that many of those in the market to purchase a sequel this holiday season might be switching over to the Sony style of life, and for more than just one major release. "In addition to identifying the cash-strapped consumer's most-wanted games for the holiday season, GamePlan Insights previously examined "franchise lineage," or gamer intent to purchase sequels to favorite games," the site says.

Next Assassin's Creed Could Feature Female Assassin in World War II

Despite the strange Matrix-esque meta-plot, the Assassin's Creed games are known for taking place in times long past, such as the Third Crusade or the Renaissance. However, it appears that Ubisoft has "had discussions" about setting the next installment of the series in a time much more recent, to say nothing of much more familiar to certain gamers. The topic is brought up in the latest issue of Xbox World 360, as Producer Sébastien Puel was quizzed about the possibility of introducing a female assassin into the mix of Mr. Miles' storied lineage. "It could be really interesting but we'd need to find the right time period and place for that," he says. Read More

Assassin's Creed Short Films in November

Ubisoft announced today, via press release, that a series of short films based on Assassin's Creed II are being produced to promote the game. The series will be called Assassin's Creed II: Lineage and will consist of three, live-action shorts. Each episode will be 10-15 minutes in length. According to the LA Times, the films will act as an epilogue to the game. Ubisoft is employing Hybridge Technologies to work on the project. These are the guys responsible for the visual effects of 300 and Sin City. So, if nothing else, the films should be aesthetically pleasing. Expect to see them some time in November.

Ubisoft Hosting Assassin's Creed II Panel at SDCC on July 23rd

I hope no one reading this is the type to plan their trips well in advance, because it seems that a number of video game companies have been saving their San Diego Comic Con agendas for the last minute. And the latest to reveal their plans? Ubisoft, who will be hosting an Assassin's Creed 2 panel at the show. Held on July 23, 2009 from 1:45–2:45 p.m. in Room 6A, the panel is titled "Assassin's Creed II: Video Games and Hollywood Converge," and is slated to touch on "the evolution of entertainment creation and distribution while highlighting the bridge between video games and film." The panel will feature Ubisoft Montreal Chief Executive Officer Yannis Mallat, Hybride Technologies Founder/CEO Pierre Raymond, whose studio created the visual effects for Sin City and 300, and a special guest in Corey May, who is the script writer for Assassin's Creed II.
