This week on Player Attack, everything goes black as Call of Duty: Black Ops II hits shelves around the world – but somne gamers got more than they bargained for. The next Mass Effect game is in the works at BioWare Montreal, both Minecraft and Halo 4 sell a whole bunch, and we get a good look at Crysis 3 singleplayer.
We learn Gabe Newell will be inducted into the AIAS Hall of Fame in the same week he reveals the Source 2 Engine, Star Wars: The Old Republic goes free-to-play, and StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm gets a new date. Beyond Good & Evil has apparently slipped down Michel Ancel’s to-do list, the Wii U console doesn’t have much storage space, Bastion heads to iPhone, and the new trailer for Grand Theft Auto V is every bit as dazzling as you’d expect.
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.
