This week on Player Attack, casual games giant Zynga slaps down $200million to buy the brains behind Draw Something. Games are dragged into politics in both Australia and the United States, we get a peek behind the scenes of the new GlassBox engine powering SimCity, and Blizzard launches a new beta, thinks about smartphone games, and admits subscribers are leaving World of Warcraft. Dragon Age II post-release work is complete, a follow-up to Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is closer than you think, the Mistborn saga gets an RPG makeover, Minecraft sets a date for console, and Far Cry 3 features some tasty mind-bending botanicals.
Each week, we take the biggest and most interesting news to hit the pages of Player Attack and wrap it all up into the Player Attack vidcast.
I like video games and music and cups of tea and noodles and beagles and colour-cycling LEDs.
