With only a few weeks to go until the ‘power’ of game classification become PEGI’s sole responsibility I figured it’d be a good idea to take a look at what hurdles still lie ahead for the ratings board and what it means for games and gamers.
Ha, ha, ha.
Oh Lord. This is funny. Kinect. Stop.
The week’s over!
What happened last week?
Nintendo had their own special ‘announcement’ to make on Friday morning.
Did you get up early to hear all about it? I hope not.
To save me writing about THQ again, here’s someone else doing it.
With Jason Rubin meeting with all of their studios and doing his best to do whatever it takes to keep this thing going for as long as possible, a couple of pieces of news have recently come out from the company which I couldn’t help but want to discuss.
Rubin recently met with those crazy folks over at Volition, who recently gave us the over the top and truly excellent open world game, Saint’s Row: The Third. The big news that came out of the meeting was that the upcoming expansion back, ‘Enter the Dominatrix’ is getting cancelled. Before you enter rage mode, it’s worth noting that the content isn’t being scrapped, but integrated into the next game in the franchise, appropriately titled “The Next Great Sequel in the Saints Row Franchise”. I really hope they keep that title. Unfortunately, this lowers THQ’s revenue for their fiscal year by $20 million.

Last night I attended what was the first London ‘Raspberry Jam’.
It was an opportunity for Raspberry Pi enthusiasts and wannabes , like me, to hear what’s been done with the micro-computer, what’s being done and what people hope to do. An informal chance to talk geek about these credit-card sized wonders.
Here’s what went on. Continue reading “Pump Up The Jam – Raspberry Pi’s First London ‘Jam’”
It’s rumoured that Nintendo are planning on offering a larger cut of the sales for developers that produce content for their ‘E-Shop’.
It’s also said that they’re keen on ensuring that all retail games, both 1st party and 3rd, are available on their download service.
Why is this good?
This is embarrassing. After all of the noise that’s being made (rightly so) about sexism and the treatment of women within video games, Yuke’s have today announced the ‘capture’ of the rights to the Lingerie Football League.
This means the developers of WWE and UFC games of yore will be bestowing us with a game based on the LFL license. Lucky us? Continue reading “Fight For Your Rights – Yuke’s Buys the Rights to Lingerie Football League”
Hey everyone. A real quick post today.
Tomorrow sees the first Raspberry Jam, an event taking place in London to allow users and would-be users of the Raspberry Pi device to get together, share ideas and talk geek.
Well done Australia. Today you’ve been deemed grown-up enough to be able to play games that are rated R18+, which is the UK equivalent of 18.
I’m sure you could have figured that out. For more on this…
