Battlefield 3 beta – “Hundreds” of changes from alpha, day one patches likely

by on Sep.06, 2011, under News, That VideoGame Blog

Just like a tender leg testing the water, Battlefield 3’s beta release will be dangling itself into the pit of criticism. DICE have already confirmed that they will be making literally “hundreds” of changes to the game so far.

So far, there has been no confirmation on the exact date of the beta release apart from “September”. The final game will be set for release towards the end of October, so that gives around a month for DICE to make any last minute adjustments.

Doom 4 single-player locked at 30fps

by on Aug.23, 2011, under News, That VideoGame Blog

by on Aug.11, 2011, under News, That VideoGame Blog

Just like an awesome band who make the one amazing album and don’t take the risk with the difficult second one, Australian developer Team Bondi are giving in its gun and badge. So maybe we’ll be assigning the case of the LA Noire sequel to another developer, eh?

by on Jul.13, 2011, under News, That VideoGame Blog

That Lara Croft bird, she’s had a long innings hasn’t she?
