That faint, distant sound you hear? That’ll exist the cheering of millions of fans who have just learned that TechRadar’s weekly gaming column is back.
Yes, 7 Days in Gaming has disappeared and been replaced with the new name of – get ready for it – Calendar week in Gaming.
“But agree on, 7 days make a calendar week!” you cry. Well observed, but this is completely different. It’s better, faster, stronger, game-ier. So it needed a
new name to reverberate that.
Got information technology? Proficient. Allow’s become going.
Red Expressionless Returneth?
We might exist getting pant-wettingly close to the launch of
(psst more than screenshots over here) just this week nosotros heard rumblings of another Rockstar franchises you might accept forgotten about while you lot’ve been caught up in the Los Santos brume.
One of these was
Bully. We’re big fans of the sandbox schoolhouse-em-up, so news that Have-Ii Interactive has filed for a new Bully trademark left united states of america feeling all warm and fuzzy inside.
And so, during an earning call, Take-2 also dropped a subtle hint that nosotros may non have seen the end of the
series. The company said information technology wants to create “permanent franchises” and explicitly named
as such an example. Nosotros’d happily play a
every year for eternity – make it happen. [CVG]
BioShock dives dorsum to Rapture
If, similar us, y’all were big fans of
but felt your time in the clouds was all too fleeting, this was the week to dust off your disk (or boot upward from the home screen, because we can totally download stuff at present) and dig into some brand new DLC, called Disharmonism in the Clouds.
But that wasn’t even the all-time part. At that place are two more than DLC adventures heading our way, one of which will whisk us back to the sullen depths of Rapture from the original
Burial at Sea will be a new run a risk that places both Booker Dewitt and Elizabeth of
fame back into the underwater dystopia, set before the fall of Rapture took place. No word of an verbal release for this only we don’t recall nosotros’ve ever been this excited about a slice of DLC before.
In the meantime, why not go and read our interview with the father of BioShock, Ken Levine?
Wii U needs a hand…
This week has been big on the yawn-inducing financials, but i of the more notable ones to brand headlines was Nintendo’s. Overall, Nintendo’south results weren’t equally terrible every bit all the “Nintendo is over!” doom mongers volition have yous believe.
However, with the Wii U having sold a meager 160,000 units during the last quarter, Nintendo clearly has a bigger claiming on its hands with the console than a lot of us idea.
…but PS4 seems to be doing just fine
Sony likewise dished out its quarterly financials this week, and its PlayStation segmentation isn’t doing too fabled right now in terms of sales with but 1.one million PS3 units sold during Q1 – though that’s non surprising with PS4 pre-orders heating up alee of launch.
And heating up they are. So much and then that Sony is imposing a United kingdom of great britain and northern ireland-wide limit on orders for the console. So if you’re hoping to get your PS4 on the day of arrival, best stop reading this and brand a dash to your local games store. Wait, practise whatever of those still exist?
Raiders of the next gen
Unless you’re still umming and erring almost pre-ordering a next gen console, of grade, in which case we hope the news that Square Enix is already busy at piece of work on its adjacent-gen follow up to
