This week on Player Attack, while PAX is heading Down Under, Black Mesa Source lines up an official release date and Red Orchestra takes to the Pacific. Ubisoft has a big week, with unexpected news, unexpected releases and one mighty quest. We found out why Sony scrapped its Killzone release earlier in the year (you'll like the reason), and City of Heroes faces an uncertain future. Phoenix Wright is back, FarmVille 2 is ready to harvest, Heart of the Swarm starts beta testing, Fortnite will do the same in 2013, and gamers set a world record that involves both Kirby and chewing gum. Both Overstrike and Furious 4 change their names, art directions and storylines, and Rift: Storm Legion looks pretty darn amazing.
Everybody has a voice, but everybody's talking about the same thing. There's a lot of noise out there, but Player Attack aims to cut through the fluff - or, sometimes, fill you in on the fluff you might have missed. We like indie releases, breathtaking concept art, and tie-in book launches. We love cheap thrills, a good soundtrack and finding innovative uses for gaming technology. All of that is reflected on the site, updated each day with stories and details about what is going on in the games industry, always paying attention to stories other outlets ignore.
