Feb

Far Cry 3 was one of the best games of 2012, but it did have a number of glaring flaws that kept it from its full potential (menu systems, they matter, they really do). Luckily, Ubisoft is going far beyond what was expected of them, and enough new updates are incoming to possibly get me back on pirate island for round two.

Development on the standalone DayZ keeps trucking on, with creator Dean Hall and his team recently deciding to ditch any of the old assets from the original and remake the game from scratch. Hall has recently posted an update on the DayZ blog, confirming that, "The experience will be entirely new. There is virtually nothing that has been directly ported from the mod, everything has been redone. This wasn’t our original intention (hence the December deadline) – but it has evolved this way. We’re all glad it has!"

Feb

Piracy is a tricky situation to handle. On the one hand, you have developers like Cactus, who, after seeing buggy versions of Hotline Miami showing up on torrent sites, decided to aid pirates by giving them advice on fixing issues within the game. On the other hand, you have bigger companies enforcing strict DRM policies or online-only play that may or may not break the game for some users. Thankfully, Analgesic Productions, the guys behind Anondyne, have decided to respond to piracy by pricing their game at $1 until Monday, February 18.

The First 'Dreamfall Chapters' Gameplay Footage Is Coming along Nicely

Feb
15

Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey, the much, much anticipated sequel to 2006's Dreamfall, is currently being independently funded through Kickstarter. That could definitely go either way, but considering they've raised almost all of the money with 22 days to go in the campaign, I think we're almost definitely going to be seeing this game in the near future (knock on wood). To celebrate, the developers have released a video containing some early prototype gameplay. While it's definitely not polished yet, it's a pretty interesting look into the new mechanics they're bringing to the game.

Steam Wants More of Your Money, Introduces Week Long Deals

Feb
12

Continuing its unrelenting war against your wallet, Steam is adding week-long deals to the already ongoing daily and weekend deals (not to mention its seasonal money sinks). This week's deals include FlatOut, Steel Storm, Alpha Prime, and Karateka. This set lasts until Monday, when the next batch of weekly deals rolls out. At this point, I think Steam should just institute a subscription service wherein my entire salary is automatically wired to them.
