Overlooked the GamesBeat Summit pleasure? Do not fret! Music in now to catch all the reside and digital classes right here.
Some other lengthy week at the books, and fortunately this one used to be now not solely ruled by way of the Microsoft-FTC-Activision Snowstorm scuffle. In truth, for the reason that Microsoft and Activision Snowstorm have prolonged their time limit for the purchase to October, apparently that the entire tournament is on ice for the close to long run. This offers each events (and the U.Ok.’s CMA) extra time to barter. Anyway, if I’ve to head yet another week doing a column at the FTC vs Microsoft, I’m going to head moderately extra mad than same old. So as an alternative, let’s speak about another stuff that took place this week.
Ubisoft posted a slight dip in gross sales for Q1 FY24, despite the fact that CEO Yves Guillemot stays positive, pronouncing it used to be a “better-than-expected efficiency.” The corporate additionally printed it plans to release 10 video games on this fiscal yr, together with Murderer’s Creed Mirage, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Rainbow Six Cell, The Group Motorfest, The Department Resurgence, Simply Dance 24, XDefiant, Prince of Persia The Misplaced Crown, Cranium & Bones (FINALLY) and “some other massive sport.” Your bet is as excellent as mine as to what that remaining one may well be.
PlayStation dropped a brand new tale trailer for the impending Surprise’s Spider-Guy 2, which after all gave us a excellent take a look at Venom. They’re nonetheless very shy about letting us pay attention Tony Todd’s voice — throughout two trailers, he’s stated 9 phrases. Nevertheless it nonetheless appears to be like excellent and I’m excited to listen to extra. Talking of trailers, Netherrealm these days launched two new trailers for Mortal Kombat 1. Within the first, we noticed 3 new showed kombatants: Li Mei, Tanya and Baraka. In the second one, we were given our first showed DLC kharacters, and the rumors had been true: Homelander, Omni-Guy and Peacemaker sign up for the fray, as do returning opponents Takeda, Ermac and Quan Chi.
As for my non-public gaming time table, I will be able to after all, FINALLY play Ultimate Myth XVI now that my husband has completed it. The sacrifices I make for romance, truthfully. However now I will be able to after all see what all of the fuss is ready — I’ve slightly made it a couple of hours into the sport and I’m already loving how other the sport is from earlier titles. You realize me, I really like a excellent spectacle motion sport and it no doubt is that up to now. I’ll most likely additionally play some Pikmin 4 now that it’s after all out.
