The Xbox One was set to release in China on September 23rd, but Microsoft is going to postpone the release date to "later in 2014." Their reasoning for the delay was just as vague.

"Despite strong and steady progress, we are going to need a bit more time to deliver the best experiences possible for our fans in China," the company said in a statement. "At Xbox, we pride ourselves on delivering first-rate gaming and entertainment experiences, and to allow us to deliver on that promise, we need to reschedule the launch of Xbox One."

In addition, Microsoft has promised those who have preorded the console will receive an "added bonus" upon launch, whatever that vague statement means.

The word of the day here is vague.

Of course there's going to be a Season Pass for Assassin's Creed Unity. At least instead of asking consumers to go in blind and trust them that the DLC offered will be amazeballs, Ubisoft has given numerous details on what fans can expect from the Season Pass. For starters, the Season Pass will include a standalone game, extended campaign missions, and a completely different campaign for Arno (Dead Kings campaign).

Specific details on the Season Pass are after the break. Or you can just watch the trailer and skip reading all together. You can preorder the Season Pass now, if you so desire.

PlayStation TV, the streaming services that allows consumers to play PlayStation 4 or Vita games on other HD TVs in the house, will release in North America on October 14th with 700 games in its launch library. With PlayStation TV, you can download Vita games directly to the device or use your Vita to stream directly to your TV. Any remote play PS4 games can also be streamed to other TVs in the house, and PlayStation Now's PS3 game service is also available for PlayStation TV. In addition, all PlayStation One classics can be downloaded to the device as well.

PlayStation TV will sell for $99 alone or for $139.99 bundle that includes a DualShock 3 controller, an 8GB memory card, and The LEGO Movie Videogame for PlayStation TV. I'm curious if that's the game for the Vita or the PS4, as the games are completely different from one another, disappointingly enough.

In Europe, the device will cost £84.99 alone or €99.99 with a voucher for three digital Vita games: Worms Revolution Extreme, Velocity Ultra, and OlliOlli.

Ubisoft talks a bit more about mission variety; specifically how they've made the assassination tasks, which alter depending on your progress and how you play the game. Check it out:

Of course, I always have to keep reminding you when games are coming out. So, once again, Assassin's Creed Unity is slated to arrive on November 11, 2014.

Well, waddaya know, a strategy game on a console. Not the first time, I grant you, but it's always a surprise. Keri takes a look at Anomaly 2 and how it plays on the PlayStation 4.

You take on the role of the convoy commander, who is a lone soldier running around outside of the convoy. Yes, the towers will shoot the commander if they see him. Yes, the commander can “die”, but he’s really just knocked out of action for a few seconds. Those few seconds of inaction can lead to your entire caravan line getting wiped out. You do not want to put the commander in harm’s way, as he is the only one who can repair damaged vehicles, set up decoys, order vehicles or morphed mechs to concentrate all fire at a certain tower, drop an EMP to temporarily knock out towers, order vehicles to morph, upgrade vehicles, buy and sell vehicles, you get the idea. The commander is essentially the console’s mouse pointer. It’s weird, it doesn’t make sense on many levels, but it works.

The last Final Fantasy game I played was FF XIII and that one was confusing as fuck. Not even sure what's going on in FF XV, but I'm sure gamers are going nuts over its release (I'm simply judging by how many people have seen this news story). Anyway, the game was showcased at the Tokyo Game Show during this weekend, so you might wanna check out how the gameplay looks:

At this point, we have know idea when they intend to release FF XV. Initially, I thought there's a chance we would see it in 2015, but Keri seems to think that it's anyone's guess and it could be out in 2016, for all we know.

Activision is bringing in the big guns to fight against former dictator Manuel Noriega and his claims that Call of Duty Black Ops 2 "harmed his character." Most notably, they have hired former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani to fight as co-counsel, and Mr. Giuliani's first action has been to final a Motion to Dismiss.

Now in typical court procedure, it's very common (almost expected) that every defendant in a civil suit will file a Motion to Dismiss of some form or fashion on the grounds that there is no evidence. In this case, the particular statute they are using to push dismissal is under California's anti-SLAPP provision, which protects freedom of speech against "spurious lawsuits."

"What's astonishing is that Manuel Noriega, a notorious dictator who is in prison for the heinous crimes he committed, is upset about being portrayed as a criminal and enemy of the state in the game Call of Duty. Quite simply, it's absurd," said Giulian said in a statement. "I'm not interested in giving handouts to a convicted murderer and drug smuggler like Manuel Noriega who is demanding money from Activision and its popular Call of Duty franchise for simply exercising its right to free speech. Noriega's attack on the rights of Call of Duty comes as no surprise considering he's a lawless tyrant who trampled over the rights of his own people."

It should also be noted that it is rare for courts to grant a Motion to Dismiss. It's possible it could happen in this case, as it all depends upon what evidence each side brings to the hearing, but I will personally be shocked if it does happen. I will definitely need popcorn throughout this lawsuit.

A BioShock Infinite: Complete Edition has surfaced at GameStop and Amazon Canada, even though 2K has not announced a new version of last BioShock game since Irrational's departure. According to these sites, it will sell for $39.99 on November 4, 2014. It will contain all of the DLC, including the following:

  • Clash in the Clouds multiplayer pack,
  • both Burial at Sea episodes,
  • Columbia's Finest gear pack, and
  • Early Bird Special pack (came with Season Pass purchase).

The Complete Edition is also only for the Xbox 360 and PS3, which surprises me, because I would think with a game of this caliber that was loved by so many, they would give it the HD remaster treatment for the new generation of consoles.

As I stroll through the wastelands of Wasteland 2, I begin to see patterns and mechanics that are all too familiar. Yep, the Fallout feel is unmistakable - the original Fallout, of course, not Bethesda's FPS series. Anyway, it's too early to say whether this game lives up to our expectation, but after all this time, yeah, I can safely say that our expectation were high; especially know that it was this franchise that spawned Fallout in the first place. Also, people who worked on classics like Planescape: Torment were involved with the development process.

Here's hoping for a decent RPG. I'm off to explore.

I'd describe this review as follows: Vince takes a break from Destiny. Otherwise, I know precious little about the franchise and the game. Luckily, Vince spent some time with it:

Infinity 2.0 is (mostly) backward compatible with the original figurines and power discs, however the original playset adventures do not work with the new version, so you might want to hold onto your original Infinity game disc if you want to revisit those worlds. Infinity 2.0 has new features like skill trees for all characters, new and old, as well as updates and improvements to the Toy Box mode should help keep players busy. Also new this time are a couple new game modes for dungeon crawl adventures and tower defense style games. Players can build and upload for other players their own levels. Crafting of these new levels can be done by hand, selecting each piece from a vast library of in game items or can make use of templates and builder discs that will procedurally generate levels for you if you don’t have the patience or creativity to do so yourself (like me)
