This week on Player Attack, PAX Australia is confirmed for Melbourne, and three day passes are selling fast. Job cuts hit Massachusetts gamers, with both Turbine Games and Zynga laying off workers, the Mass Effect movie gets a new screenwriter, while Ubisoft comes to a new agreement on the Assassin's Creed film. At the same time, Assassin's Creed 3 is officially Ubi's most pre-ordered title, but that news comes as we learn the game has been leaked more than a week out from launch. Guild Wars 2 celebrates Halloween, the Wii U will sell at a loss, Dishonored and XCOM: Enemy Unknown line up for new DLC, SimCity is delayed (boo!), the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft tops the Xbox Live activity charts, Folding@Home retires from the PS3, and the new BioShock Infinite trailer is everything we hoped for.
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.
