This week on Player Attack, we spent a few days at EB Expo 2012, and made an interesting friend or two. While all that was going on, Minecraft games cards snuck into North American retailers, while developer Mojang signed a book deal. Cliff Bleszinski has left Epic Games after two decades, Activision and No Doubt settle their lawsuit, we meet the Mechromancer, Steam Software brings a little variety, XCOM: Enemy Unknown pre-orders get a little civilised, we get an unexpected look at Karateka and some other Xbox Live titles, Resident Evil 6 breaks records, Sony sues its own character, and Forza Horizon looks stunning. http://www.playerattack.com
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.
