Daily News - 5th May 2011 - L.A. Noire, Assassin's Creed and More Fricking PSN Stuff

Sorry guys, forgot to post this last night

L.A Noire To Take Up A Whole Blu-Ray / 3 DVDs

Rockstar's next game, featuring brand new face mapping technology that gives it's character more emotive power than there's ever been in gaming (allegedly ofcourse...) will apparently come as 1 disc for the PS3 but 3 for the Xbox 360. I think this sounds like a great thing. 3 discs worth is a lot of gaming, even Mass Effect 2 only took 2 discs. Now obviously, a game's quality isn't marked by how many discs it comes on, but the number of discs surely implies that the game will be of a meaty length ("meaty length", brain? Really?...)

I've not been very "high" on Rockstar games in the past, they're fun but the story always loses me, so I'm excited to see if L.A. Noire gives me the satisfying story I've been craving with none of the awkward and kinda shitty game play. The good news is we'll find out when the game is released on May 17th (well, supposedly)

Look at the emotion! THE ACTING!

Sony To Get Hacked Again? Service To Be Partially Restored Soon? Anonymous Behind It?

That's right folks, it's your non-negotiable daily PSN update! So there's been a bit more drama in the past few days which I shall attempt to sum up as quickly as possible, for both our sakes.

  • Reports have started coming in that Sony are going to suffer another hack this weekend. I unfortunately can't look up the details right now but it's fairly self explanatory.
  • The cost of repairing the damage to the system, as well as losing money in the various types of compensation Sony will have to offer is expected to cost in the billions
  • Sony are said to be in the final stages of internal testing on their new system, which should mean PSN and their various other online services will follow fairly shortly after.
  • Sony submitted their case to Uniter states Congress. If I know anything about US law, then we should be hearing back about that in a long ass time.
  • Sony, after finding some evidence on the hacked system, accused Anonymous of spear heading the hack attacks, which Anonymous vehemently denied.

Assassin's Creed: Revelations Details Announced

Game Informer, the last bastion of video game magazines, has the scoop on the next entry in the (shitty) Assassin's Creed franchise. Apparently the next game will take place in Constantinople during the Ottoman Empire, and will be the final entry into the Ezio trilogy (I didn't even know it was supposed to be a trilogy). the interesting thing (from a purely objective standpoint ofcourse) is that Ubisoft say as well as keeping the Desmond part of the story intact, the game will also bring Altair back into the fold. How? Probably just through memories, I don't think it's actually even possible for Altair and Ezio to cross paths... well, in a universe where aliens are god, I suppose any bullshit is possible.

"Just fanning him off, officer..."
