This week on the podcast, the team discuss the return of definitely-not-rubbish film tie-ins as Kick-Ass 2 announces itself to the world. Can this curious collection of malformed bodies and terribly aliased screenshots rival the Ocean Software film tie-in “greats” of the early 90s? We’ll just have to wait and see.
Meanwhile, Valve has trolled everybody by registering (or perhaps extending) a Half-Life 3 trademark in Europe. You hear that, everybody who just wanted them to announce Half-Life 3 instead of making Steam Machines? Yeah, well, they’re still not announcing it. So. There you go.
In other PC-related announcements, Hideo Kojima has once again mentioned that Metal Gear Solid V is being developed on our beloved machine (but he’s notorious for his misdirection,) while Ubisoft have surprised precisely nobody by delaying Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag to late-ish November. Maxis has also surprised precisely nobody by managing to even turn the announcement of modding for SimCity into a confusing and disappointing PR nightmare.
