In Case You Missed It – 10th to 16th November

Big News:

Assassin’s Creed Unity

Well, I mean if you haven’t seen all that pilaver, I can recap for you, but I don’t know how you managed to miss it. The review embargo came after the release. There were plenty of bugs and glitches, plenty of which are funny. There are technical issues on the game, like dipping framerates and things. Ubisoft Montreal even set-up a liveblog, as in a rapidly updating blog, to tell people they were fixing bugs. Its been pretty crazy. People then won’t let Ubisoft forget about it until their next mucked up release. Then they won’t care, and I can enjoy the patched game in peace.

Mario Kart 8

New DLC came out for the newest Mario Kart title. There are a handful of new maps and Link now drives karts as well as fights. This is probably the most enjoyment I’ll ever get out of anything Zelda related because I don’t like Zelda games. But I also don’t have a Wii U so I guess I’m not playing Mario Kart 8 either.

Valkyria Chronicles, out on something that’s not a PS3

Turns out there was a market for Valkyria Chronicles on devices that aren’t PS3s. It shot up to one of the highest downloaded Steam titles on release and it seems to be doing pretty well for itself. If you want to get a check on how good its looking on PC, check out the Stream Friends videos.

Ongoing GTA V / Online news watch

Because the hype train never ends apparently; better character creator, 30 player races, online heists are coming in the first update post-next-gen-launch, other stuff. It’ll be nice to see the news cycle freed from Rockstar’s tyrannical grasp next week, really.

Joe Trail is the editor-in-chief of Don’t Be A Pixel. Mostly because he says he is, not because he has other writers to edit over. But such is the life of a busy editor-in-chief, obviously. He’s also an avid writer for the site. Of course.
