Square Enix Are Working on a New AAA Hitman, Mobile Game

In an email sent out today detailing various changes to western Square Enix personnel, they have confirmed that IO Interactive are working on a "new AAA Hitman game." No other details were given, although it's probably fair to presume you won't be waiting as long as you were for Hitman Absolution, and that the new game will be making an appearance on next-gen consoles.

New Super Luigi U Released Today

You may have heard that 2013 is the year of Luigi. Mario's bumbling brother has been forced to the forefront, first in March's Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon and, today, in New Super Luigi U. The first piece of DLC for New Super Mario Brothers U, New Super Luigi U is a full game conversion/expansion that gives fans of the game a whole new platforming experience within the same game. With Luigi's unique skills and few more challenging levels (and a harsher time limit), this is no doubt a must-buy for those that loved the original base game.

Xbox Fans Lament Family Sharing

It was a feature of the Xbox One that very few people seemed to know about, but for those that "got" it, yesterday's announcement that Microsoft were dropping more or less everything that had previously been announced was a bitter-sweet reveal. Family Sharing would have allowed you and up to ten of your friends to share a single game digitally, with you and one other person playing at exactly the same time. For those excited about the feature, this would have cut costs, opened up a whole catalogue of games they perhaps wouldn't have otherwise played and made sharing games with their long distance friends far easier than it currently is.

Microsoft Ditch Xbox One 24 Hour Check in, Trade Limitations

Microsoft have had a lot of frank feedback over the last few weeks, and it seems they've decided to act on it. They've announced this evening that they're ditching almost everything that was previously announced for the Xbox One, good and bad. While the 24 hour check in and trade limitations are no longer going to be a part of the system, they're also getting rid of the family sharing, digital selling and trading.

PS4 Online Blocked for Countries Without a Store

PlayStation Plus isn't available everywhere, and neither is the PlayStation Store, and although Sony has made every effort to roll features out to every country interested, it's not always possible. Up until recently, this has been a minor inconvenience, a barrier that blocks some people from taking advantage of free games, digital purchases and cloud saves. What about for the PS4 though? It's today been confirmed that unless you have access to a PlayStation Store in your region, you won't be able to play online on Sony's next-gen console.

Fable 3 is free on Xbox Market

To kick off their new program for Xbox Live Gold members, Fable 3 is currently free to download in the Xbox Live marketplace. That’s right: for the low price of zero dollars (not including the $5-10 a month for the membership, of course), Gold members can enjoy Lionshead Studio’s third entry in their slapstick Fable series, enjoying the world of Albion and becoming a beacon of good or evil (your choice) as you go from disgruntled prince to king of…

PS+ Content For July (And August?)

Sony have announced the content that will be available to PlayStation Plus subscribers in July. It's a great mix of some top games, things that are definitely going to help you prepare for a few big upcoming titles. Although you'll need to enjoy shooters to really get the most out of this month, the inclusion of Battlefield 3, Payday: The Heist and Saints Row the Third is sure to be enough to justify this month's pay. That's an awful lot for an awful little.

XCOM for iOS releases 6/20 for $19.99

Well, that didn't take long. After announcing an iOS version of their award-winning strategy title earlier this spring, Firaxis Games wasted no time optimizing XCOM: Enemy Unknown for the touch screen: on Monday they announced the game would hit the App Store this Thursday for $19.99. That's right, the full XCOM experience (save for DLC, though Firaxis could always release this later as an in-app purchase) will launch for $10-20 cheaper than most retailers currently sell the console/PC version.

Being Black in Animal Crossing is Hard Work

Animal Crossing: New Leaf is largely a game about leaving an impression. Whether you're creating your town in the sometimes dull single player or if you're visiting friends to see how they've built up their world, you can do so with a personality and charm that you yourself have created. In many ways, you can be whatever you want to be in New Leaf, unless you want to be black. Then your only option is to tan, tan, tan.
