Word has been going around the campfire that Assassin's Creed Rogue, which is currently a last-gen console exclusive, is also going to make its way to Windows PC.

It appears that Brazillian Classification Board listed the game for PC and there have been reports that the title showed up briefly in Ubisoft's Uplay Reward page for PC during the weekend. Some screenshots have surfaced as well (via NeoGaf).

While this might very much what you'd expect from Ubisoft (putting consoles before PCs and then announcing a PC edition later on), it's still not official.

F.E.A.R. Online, which was announced back in July 2013, now has an official launch date. Aeria Games revealed that the free-to-play online multiplayer shooter will be out on October 17, 2014. Today we've received a trailer that accompanies the news::

Ah, I remember the good old days when everything wasn't so fucked up in the industry and we could actually play decent single-player first-person shooters, lie F.E.A.R., without worrying whether or not it'll be turned into a F2P online game.

Just to remind you, Monolith who made the first two F.E.A.R 1 and 2. games haven't been involved with this project. Day 1 Studios, who worked on F3AR, also didn't work on it.

When THQ went belly-up in 2013, Vigil Games wasn't picked up as part of the bankruptcy auction. Nordic Games purchased the rights to Darksiders, and Crytek ended up hiring several Vigil employees, but it wasn't the same as the sale of Volition to Deep Silver. It wasn't whole, and they didn't take their IPs with them.

Since then, a few of the former-Vigil employees banded together to form a new studio called Gunfire Games. And now, other former Vigil-ites have founded a new indie studio, Airship Syndicate. Not only that, but they've announced they're already hard at work on a prototype to show off very soon.

Joe Madureira, Ryan Stefanelli, and other former Vigil developers are forming Airship Syndicate, an independent game studio that is already hard at work on a prototype. However, even though most of the team is from the former Darksiders team, with more former teammates coming in later, they did confirm with Game Informer that this prototype is not Darksiders.

Okay, this is quite creepy. I am officially scared by Aliens: Isolation. If they continue with this type of creepiness, this could be a good game. The latest in a series of #HowWillYouSurvive trailers for Sega's upcoming horror Alien-esque FPS:

The game is gonna be out for PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms on October 7, 2014. So be prepared for creepiness.

The Evil Within has officially "gone gold" for all five platforms, and to celebrate, Bethesda has released another chilling gameplay trailer. Called "Every Last Bullet", this trailer emphasizes the need for survival and focusing on your ammo and inventory. There are no plentiful ammo caches here; it's all about knowing when it's best to fight and when it's best to flee.

The Evil Within will release on October 14, 2014 for everything except for the Wii U.

Whoa, a 3DS game up for review? Well, we figured this one was big enough to warrant a review from AT. It's a crossover of two beloved icons from Nintendo handhelds, but the question is, does melding them together create a delectable Reese's chocolate peanut butter cup? Oh yes, yes it does.

Here's a snippet from my review:

Since Professor Layton’s mysteries typically dabble in fantasy somehow mixed in with reality, what’s the best way to stir in a courtroom with this concoction? Why, with witch trials of course! Layton, Luke, Wright, and Maya are all sucked into a storybook of Labyrinthia, a town set in medieval times where the townspeople live in fear of witches and witchcraft. They also live in adoration of the Storyteller, a masked man who writes the Stories of all the people in Labyrinthia, and whatever he writers always comes true. Both pairs were unintentionally brought into the story due to their run-ins with a young girl, Espella Cantabella. They each met her in London under strange circumstances, and then once more when they find themselves in the Labyrinthia storybook. While Layton unravels the mystery of how they ended up in a book in the first place, Wright finds himself slamming his hands down on a desk in court while constantly defending Espella in various witch trials.

And yes, it just gets weirder from there. But don't take it from me here; go take it from me there with my review.

It's sad that it has come to this for EA, but the creative director for an upcoming EA game has had to orally assure everyone that their game will work at launch.

Speaking to Game Revolution at Tokyo Game Show, Visceral Games creative director Ian Milham provided the following clear response to a question regarding the stability of Battlefield: Hardline at launch:

What you're basically asking is, "Is you're game going to work?" and the answer is yes, it's gonna work. We actually started on this more than a year before Battlefield 4 came out. We've been working with the DICE guys for a long time; some of our engineering work is actually in Battlefield 4 and things they've been doing since then. It's in pretty great shape now and all that work is gonna come into what we're doing. We already had one very successful beta, we're going to have another beta on every platform we ship on. We take shipping a working game pretty seriously. So, yes, the game will work.

He did slip in a small caveat that there are bound to be some bumps at launch due to releasing across five platforms and the size of the game, but he remains confident in his team.

Battlefield: Hardline, EA's own version of cops and robbers, is set to release some time in 2015.

Good morning, fine, kind readers of the ActionTrip, this small, darkish corner of the Internet. I'm slowly veering towards a decision about my nickname. Some of you were right. At this stage, it's probably more important to show some integrity by standing proudly by my nickname Vadar, sorry, Vader, and just continue showing my fist and middle finger to greedy publishers and developers, until they finally pull their socks up and start making the games we want to play. Not saying that this applies to Wasteland. 

By the way, my 6-year-old daughter asked me about death the other day. Man, that was one of the toughest questions I've ever been asked.

Thought I'd put the spotlight on indie devs, instead of EA for a change.

After spending almost 15 bloody hours in Wasteland 2 (I'm really pushing to get this review out as fast as possible), I decided to take a break. So, I had a little walk around the block, then I realized it's Friday night and what could be more appropriate for a nice and relaxing evening than to stay indoors and play some more. Eventually though, I got tired of bloody Wasteland 2, so I switched to Reaper of Souls. 

Playing Reaper of Souls with the Diablo 1 and Diablo 2 soundtracks swelling in the background... I've finally gone full-on insane. 

We've stumbled upon The Vault in Diablo 3: RoS last night, and boy was it a glorious experience. I've never seen more greed in one place (me included).
