This week on Player Attack, we take a quick look at how Hurricane Sandy impacted on the games industry, knocking out servers for Call of Duty and Guitar Hero, and delaying our next look at Grand Theft Auto V (which has finally set a date, by the way). Hollywood sets its sights on yet another video game, while big name talent lends some skills to the latest trailer for Black Ops II (...and other big name talent apparently spills the beans on Modern Warfare 4). Borderlands 2 fans get infected by a new exploit, PAX Australia officially sells out of three-day passes, an Aussie rugby player is fined for criticising a video game, we find out just when you can discover what's in the cube, there will be no premium DLC for Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and while Halo 4 heads to Liechtenstein, Sackboy heads to (near) space, and Natural Selection 2 shows that the six year wait was totally worth it.
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.
