Skylanders SWAP Force had a Dark Edition, and Trap Team will be getting similar treatment. However, SWAP Force Dark Edition was a Gamestop exclusive, and that will not be the case this time around.

The Dark Edition contains black and silver editions of three of the Trap Team characters and a trap for Lord Kaos. It will debut at San Diego Comic Con (of course it will), but Skylanders fans can also preorder it from retailers. So far, Toys R Us is the only one to list it, and they only have it for the Wii U, although Kotaku says that the Dark Edition will be available for the Wii, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 as well.


Okay, so, id Software hasn't talked about Doom for years (seems like decades to me) and now they are trying to pump life back into it by throwing a few crumbs on the table. Yes, I am slightly pissed off due to the gay teaser and the whole QuakeCon-attendees-only reveal. However, id has explained that this reveal is part of the company's effort to restore the public's faith in the franchise.

"We're working with them to say, 'How does this work? What do we want to show?'" Bethesda's Pete Hines said. "And they're like, 'Look, we don't want a stream to go up for a game that isn't at the point where we would formally show it to the world, and now that thing is getting picked apart, and digested, and gone through frame-by-frame and getting nitpicked to death, when normally we wouldn't be showing this to anybody at all.'"

So, if I understand this correctly, they decide to restore Doom's reputation in the eyes of the public by not showing anything to the public?

You can also add to this story the simple fact that id Software is unlikely to showcase Doom 4 anytime soon. In fact, probably not before 2015.

Hope you got in plenty of Destiny beta playing time, because the adventure is offline until the 23rd as Bungie prepares to open the beta to Xbox players on Wednesday.

The beta will start up again on July 23rd and then finally close for good on July 27th. After that, you'll have to wait until Destiny's official release on September 9th to jump back into Bungie's action.


Ah this premise (a truly 'odd' one) does bring back fond memories:

Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty has been revealed during this year's E3 and is going to launch on July 22 (tomorrow) for PlayStation 4 and Wii U.

The Last of Us Remastered is getting a new photo mode, but this will be a day one patch instead of an on-disc install. Additionally, for the record, the remaster will require 50GB to install as well.

So why a photo mode? They saw how much it took off with inFamous: Second Son, so they thought it would be a fun addition.

"One of the things that we wanted to include was the share mode, especially after we saw the reaction for the inFamous photo mode," community strategist Arne Meyer told Eurogamer. "Generally speaking we want to break the camera so you can move around, with depth of field. We were already experimenting with that. We don't have a full feature list just yet."

In addition to the photo mode, the patch will include Grounded, the documentary by Naughty Dog about making The Last of Us last year.

The Last of Us Remastered will release for the PlayStation 4 next week, on July 29, 2014.


The latest (rather massive) update for Dark Souls 2 (v1.08) brings an staggering amount of changes and fixes and is also laying the ground for the release of the Crown of the Sunken King DLC (slated for July 22).

Here's how Namco Bandai describes the DLC: "The Crown of the Sunken King sends players on a quest to reclaim the Crown that King Vendrick once owned. With entirely new areas to explore within the Dark Souls II universe, players will find pyramids, underground caverns, and unknown foes. It is said that the Ancient Crown is buried deep below the surface, but surely it cannot sit unguarded?"

Naughty Dog is seriously considering creating a sequel to The Last of Us. Community Strategist Arne Meye said in an interview that not investigating working on a sequel "would be a disservice to ourselves and our fans."

"I think we always make a smart decision in that all of our games are self-contained stories so they don’t have to continue if we don’t want them to or if there’s no reason for them to continue," he continued.

He went on to say that the team must be "passionate" about any idea they concoct. As such, if this doesn't happen, then there will be no sequel. In other words, don't get your hopes up too high.



According to a recent job listing, Maxis is prepping work on a new project, one that calls upon LittleBigPlanet, Disney Infinity, and Minecraft as inspiration.

Maxis is looking for a senior designer to work on "a new unannounced Maxis product." Candidates must have experience in "deeply social multiplayer games, such as MMOs," and also mentions that the game will feature RPG elements and crafting. They also want someone who knows how to "weave Free-to-Play game mechanics with monetization in simple, natural, respectful ways."

And yeah, it looks like this project will be for mobile and PC only, which is fitting for what Maxis has always done.

So what do you think it could be? A new FTP Sim City game? A completely new venture?

Here ends another exciting edition of 'what Brits play' every fucking week.


Monty Python Live at the O2 Arena in London was broadcast yesterday via cinemas around the globe. I'm double-glad I got a chance to watch this last night. Haven't had this much fun in a long time and it's been great to see the Champanless Python crew gathered once more and doing their magic. They are all older than the pyramids, but they still have the energy.  

Watched the entire show, still laughing at the classic sketches and some brilliant improv they made along the way, in addition to some referrences to contemporary politics and celebs - including Putin and Top Gear. Still can't remove the huge grin off my face.

The Kim Kardashian game just clashed with Divinity: Original Sin.

No drinking took place. None whatsoever. Well, maybe just a little red wine, but that's it.  

Anyway, it looks like Larian Studios finally patched their game and addressed the damn crashes I've been experiencing on my home rig. Review's going up on Monday, sorry for the delay.
