So much news to share in so little time. That is where the Player2 News Bites comes in. All the hot topics in small easy to chew pieces.
News Bites – Wednesday the 22nd of February
– Ever enjoyed the the warped view on New Jersey provided by Kevin Smith’s ViewAskew films? Well if the answer is yes you may want to head over to Fig and check out the crowd funding campaign for Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch. The game is set to be a side scrolling beat-em-up with tag team options and an interesting (in theory at least) verbal battle system. If this sounds like your cup of tea check out the promo video below or head to the campaign page. We can only hope that Alan Rickman’s Metatron makes a cameo appearance.
– If you can’t decide which system you are going to get the latest version of DOOM on this promo from Xbox might just twist your arm in their direction. If you pre-order DOOM on the Xbox One you will receive XBLA copies of Doom 1 and Doom 2. Now it is fair to say that if you don’t own these games on one of the 300 different systems they have been released on well then…… I just don’t really know what to say. But in all honesty can you have too many copies of these classics shoot em ups? I think not.
– Puzzle fans rejoice because the most excellent iOS/Android game Hitman GO has now launched on PS4, PS Vita and PC. The game is different to traditional Hitman games as it is a turn based puzzler as opposed to a 3rd person stealth game. Players use the environment and careful movements to eliminate their targets. The game won a multitude of awards and is deserving of everyone’s attention despite its humble beginnings as a mobile game.
– Ubisoft must fancy their chances that The Division will be a hit after the beta numbers came in over the weekend. A whopping 6.4 million players took part in the beta making it the industry’s largest ever for a new game IP. Fingers crossed that Ubisoft can thank those beta players with a polished, well rounded and most of all fun final product. The Division comes out on March 8.
