Zone Of The Enders HD Finally Gets A European Release Date

Earlier today, we gawped at a new trailer for the Zone Of The Enders HD Collection, and stated that it made us desperately crave a UK release date.

Now it has one. November 30th, to be precise.

The Zone Of The Enders HD collection contains remastered versions of the original game and its sequel, along with a playable Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo.

Kickstarter UK Goes Live, British Devs Rejoice

As of today, Kickstarter is now accepting UK startups, which will hopefully lead to plenty of homegrown British indie games over the coming months. The crowd funding portal allowed several projects to get prepared before today's launch, including Simon Roth's Maia and Industry from Robert Hesketh.

Naturally we'll keep our ears to the ground for more British talent taking to the service.

If Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs is as terrifying as its predecessor and new trailer suggests, this little piggy will be staying at home. Probably crying, sweating profusely and maintaining questionable bowel control.

EA "Disappointed" Over MOH: Warfighter Critical Reception, "Mock Reviews" Suggested Better Quality

In spite of a massive day one patch, every reviewer in the industry not receiving code until the last minute directly before launch, no preview material at all in the run up to release for the singleplayer component, and innumerable other warning signs, EA were apparently "disappointed" by the critical reaction to Medal of Honor: Warfighter.

It's almost as if they didn't know.

Well as it happens, they didn't! According to yesterday's investor call, the business head honchos had been reassured through "internal testing and mock reviews" that everything was going to be just fine.

Zone of the Enders HD Collection Launch Trailer Makes Us Want A UK Release Date

Zone of the Enders HD Collection isn't out over here yet. This becomes crushingly obvious in the moments immediately following due viewing of the new launch trailer when, filled with a sense of longing and yearning, you take to the interwebs or streets to immediately order a copy.

It is out now in the US though, though, with reports pointing towards a vague November release for the compilation over here. While you wait, we suggest watching the trailer on loop. There's even some Revengeance stuff thrown in for good measure, as the Collection will feature a demo for the Raiden-focused slice-'em-up.

Sony: Vita Sales "A Marathon, Not A Sprint"

"We've Got A Lot More For You"

Sony is still unwilling to publicly reveal PS Vita sales, but Nintendo's exquisite corporate trolling suggests that the numbers aren't looking particularly healthy. SCE America VP John Koller reckons that the handheld will gradually bloom over the coming months thanks to some major incoming titles and third party deals, but that it will be a "marathon, not a sprint."

Halo 4: Spartan Ops Trailer Showcases Season 1

Halo 4's Spartan Ops promises to continue the fight after the campaign finishes. Each week, 343 Industries plans to release five short canonical missions set six months after the end of the main storyline, which will eventually add up to a 50-mission season told through ten 'episodes.' Better yet, Spartan Ops will also be free, with the first five missions included on-disc.

This new trailer helps to give some context to the action and introduces some of the characters you'll encounter as part of Crimson Team.

Halo 4 is set to release on November 6th. Look out for our full review later this week.

Report: Silicon Knights Secretly Worked On Eternal Darkness 2 Alongside X-Men Destiny

Ex-Staffers Allege Dodgy Developmental Skullduggery

Silicon Knights, the developer behind Eternal Darkness and more recently Too Human and X-Men Destiny, now lies in ruins. The studio now only consists of a skeleton crew of five staffers, including CEO Dennis Dyack. More damningly, however, a report from newly redundant personnel alleges that  Silicon Knights secretly siphoned resources away from Activision-backed X-Men Destiny to work on an Eternal Darkness 2 prototype, and never 'took it seriously.'
