    https://www.pushsquare.com/news/2020/11/some_people_are_getting_cat_food_instead_of_the_ps5_they_paid_for

    How anyone could be so utterly goofy as to confuse a box of catto food (among other things) with a PS5?

    Not news, but a recent article i've stumbled across:
    https://www.thegamer.com/splinter-cell-sam-fisher-quotes/

    The Norman Soth one is my favourite. Two more that didn't make the list are; "I get nervous when the bad guys start making jokes." and "Do you like sperlunking?".


    Dammit UbiSoft, all you had to do was make another Splinter Cell.

    Wasn't expecting this, but Sniper Ghost Warrior: Contracts 2 is coming the PS4, PS5, XBX One, X Box Series X and PC June 4th. Here's the trailer:



    This series has had a bumpy journey, but with Contracts it finally pulled itself together. Contracts 2 looks like it will continue in a similar vein, and i'm more than hapy with that.

    The new Ghost Recon, Ghost Recon: Frontline, is F2P and Battle Royale
    https://www.pushsquare.com/news/2021/10/ghost-recon-frontline-announced-is-a-free-to-play-massive-multiplayer-shooter-for-ps5-ps4

    There goes any interest I had in it. I have enjoyed Wildlands and Breakpoint, but this, I have no interest in. If it were a single player game, with an optional co-op component, it would have had my interest. Battle Royale doesn't do it for me, I don't care for Fortnite, nor any cheap attempt to piggyback of it's frankly baffling popularity with younger gamers.

    Konami is looking to start to remaster some of their cash cow series (Metal Gear, Castlevania and Silent Hill). Must be times are tough.

    I am really looking forward to the MGS3 Snake Eater remake, assuming they don't give it the Twin Snakes treatment.

    I wonder it will have different Leatherface from the various films, though I can’t imagine how different their stats would be. After Friday The 13: The Game, I would approach this one very cautiously.

    So... I log into Youtube, look at my notifications and see that Rebellion have posted a new update. I'm thinking that it probably will be a video about Evil Genius 2 or a general video about the previous Sniper Elite games. It won't be about Sniper Elite 5, because they haven't talked about it since the announcement last year. Well...



    or a non age restricted upload:

    Even if Project 007 doesn't come out next year, and the rumour of a new Splinter Cell turns out to be just a rumour, then at least I will have a new Sniper Elite to look forward too. Our boi Karl is back, and he's off to France.

    Ubisoft are going to strip back the next Assassins Creed game.

    https://www.pushsquare.com/news/2022/02/rumour-new-smaller-assassins-creed-game-will-focus-on-stealth-in-late-2022-or-2023

    That is music to my ears. I say this as a long time fan, but I never finished Origins, and my copy of Odyssey remains untouched. I think they reached a point where they actually became too big. So a return to a smaller, more stealth driven game, piques my interest.

    I see they've finally tuned back in to what fans are after here. I gave up after III, found it to be awful and missing the magic of the prior two. I haven't touched or even really watched the series since then, doesn't seem like I've missed out on much.

    It's funny that you should say that. III was the one that I gave up on originally. I never cared for Ezio's story in the way than many of the fans did, so when III came along, and I just wasn't in to it, I gave up on it (and the series going forward.... or so I thought). It wasn't until someone online convinced me to give Black Flag (which as it turned out, become my favourite AC) a try, that I got back in to the series. At least until Origins, which isn't bad, but... god dammit, I hate the hard-on that Ubisoft have for Looter Shooter/Gear Score in games. Ghost Recon: Breakpoint was developed and released to be a Looter Shooter, but following the backlash from fans, they backtracked and allowed it to be turned off. If they did the same with Origins, I would feel more inclined to go back and finish it off.

    Glad I wasn't alone in those sentiments. Sadly, Black Flag seemed to be more of the same from III and I didn't like the new shoehorning in of those optional objectives that were anything but if you were going for trophies. They were very irritating.

    Now I didn't mind the optional objectives, they gave me further reason to go back and replay sections of the game. I enjoyed it. Just like with AC: Syndicate, which I enjoyed so much, that I bought the Jack The Ripper dlc.

    I probably would've been better off doing that but I tried to get them as I went along and it was a real pain in the ass.

    I hope we get some more video game news soon.

    Something I’m interested in. I hope Beetlejuice is included, with Michael Keaton.

    Good riddance, they haven't offered anything overly revelatory or surprising in the past several years that isn't already leaked or all-but-confirmed.

    I'd be surprised if we got one even with E3 running an in-person and/or virtual event. I figure it won't be until next year that we'll get either a cinematic trailer or something with some gameplay thrown in. I'd love to be wrong though!

    Sorry about that, I forgot to post the link.

    I honestly can’t remember the last time I watched E3, and even then, I didn’t watch it all. Just the segments for specific developers. Maybe it is going the way of gaming magazines. Most, if not all, developers have a social media presence, where they can cut out the middle men, and go straight to their fans.

    That's how I see it. I'm surprised gaming magazines are still a thing - might make sense for those without Internet connections but no sense in subscribing to something that's delivering screenshots and news that are weeks old. E3's the same way anymore.

    I haven't bought a gaming magazine in years. Back in the day, I was a regular subscriber to OPS2 Magaine UK. Every month, without fail, I bought a copy. I had stacks of them.

    Like I said even though I am in IT i only have a select few franchises I am really into.

    Splinter Cell (reboot/remake coming in like 3 years likely)
    Batman (Gotham knights this fall AND I still can't preorder the bloody thing)
    Bond (Project 007 will be released... some day before the end of time I hope)
    Indiana Jones (Ha yeah my guess is Bethesda is behind IO interactive so assuming I survive the apocalypse I can pre order Indiana jones)


    And the rest are just maybe buys I did pick up the 2 latest dooms that I will play and beat at some point...


    Still the hope that each E3 would show case a Bond Batman or Splinter Cell game (Especially with leaks confirming Ubisoft will release the new game in 2018... 2019... 2020... 2021?)
