Thief

Eidos Montreal's new "Thief" came has been kind of under wraps since erstwhile studio manager Stephane D'Astous peaced out for greener pastures earlier this summer, citing "irreconcilable" differences with publisher Square Enix. But when it rains, it pours: "Thief" is now available for pre-order (with an exclusive mission as bait) and a new interview with the PlayStation Blog sheds light on how it will use the DualShock 4's new hardware.

needforspeedthemovie

Earlier today, we mentioned screenwriter David S Goyer's observations as to why so many video game movies fail. In his opinion, if a game's central character is not compelling, then the actor portraying him or her will have little to work with.

So it'll be interesting to see how Aaron Paul (who's a hot commodity right now, thanks to "Breaking Bad") fares with his depiction of the nameless, faceless person behind the wheel in EA's various "Need For Speed" games.

Unless you're able to give your character a name, which is possible in some installments. In that case, Paul will be playing the role of "BringBackNightCourt247" (my go to handle for any driving game).

Today they announced that they would be partnering with multiple developers as well as creating their own prototype hardware in 2014, as well as a beta program for current Steam users to see what they've been cooking up.

truckstop

It's been a while since we've seen a new installment of "Burnout", largely due to the fact its creators were ordered by EA to help revive their floundering "Need For Speed" franchise.

And once it was discovered that the studio behind everyone's crash and burn simulator had basically been disbanded, all hope for proper follow-up was dashed.

But there's always room for spiritual follow-ups. And that's where "Truck Stop" comes int.

With the exception of "Killer Instinct," the next generation is looking a little thin on the fighting game front. However, a Brazilian classification authority listing for "Injustice: Gods Among Us" indicates that a Game of the Year Edition of the Netherrealm-developed fighter will be headed to the Xbox One and PS4 as well as to the Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and Wii U.

puyopuyotetris

When it comes to classic, arcade puzzle games, two names have been mainstays for a very long time now: "Tetris" and "Puyo Puyo". Both are similar, yet words apart.

One is about making blocks disappear, the other is about making blobs (with eyes) vanish. The former is all about filling gaps and the latter is mostly reliant upon color. And whereas the world loves "Tetris", "Puyo Puyo"'s popularity has mostly been contained within Japan.

So it makes sense that, at Tokyo Game Show, Sega unveiled the long-awaited merging of the two. Which is simply called "Puyo Puyo Tetris".

south-park-stick-of-truth-destiny-trailer

It's been a little while since Ubisoft picked up "South Park: The Stick of Truth" in the midst of the dissolution of THQ. The RPG developed by "Fallout: New Vegas" studio Obsidian Entertainment has mostly gone radio silent as the publisher continued to tout a 2013 release date for the RPG.

For whatever reason, the game needed a protracted "analysis" phase by its new owners, but now we've finally got a 2013 release date: December 10th, 2013 for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
