Medal Of Honor Franchise "Taken Out Of Rotation"

EA "Launching A New Battlefield Game Next Year"

As part of their latest financial postings, EA announced that the Medal Of Honor franchise has been dishonourably discharged from their active roster, following Warfighter's poor performance. This could potentially make room for a new Battlefield title, if not a debut from Respawn Entertainment.

Dead Space 2 | £4.99 | Game | PC

For anyone needing to catch up on the series before the third game lands on February 8th, this is a great price for the boxed PC version of the second game. It has less scares than the original; which should prepare you for the action-leanings of part three. There's loads of fun to be had with the game's awesome range of weapons that specialise in slicing limbs off the necromorph hordes that scuttle, slither and slice their way towards you. Whatever you do though, avoid the bloody awful Dead Space: Downfall DVD. Worst thing I've seen since I imposed a Uwe Boll ban on myself.

American McGee Retracts EA "Tricks Gamers" Statement

After suggesting that EA were trying to "trick gamers" with the  marketing campaign for Alice: Madness Returns - with the trailers making the game out to be rather more horrific and gory than it actually was - American McGee has moved to clarify his statement and amend his previous criticism.

The Sims 3 | £7.50 | Steam | PC

It’s rather impressive how this one has managed to retain such a high price point despite approaching its fourth year in existence, but thankfully the Midweek Madness sale on Steam sees their price reduced by 75%. As a result, it means that the saving over the next best offer currently sits at an impressive £8.50.

The third main outing in the franchise has the ability to go beyond your customisable home and around the town, allowing players to create their own city from scratch to place all their sims. In other words, if you dare get this deal there’s a good chance you’ll not be seeing daylight for a while. Thanks to Polarixs @ HUKD!

"The Problem Isn't Sexism" - EA's Toledano on Women In The Industry

EA’s executive vice president and chief talent officer, Gabrielle Toledano, has suggested that blaming sexism for keeping "women out of game studios" is "misguided" and "a co-out". According  to Toledano, the solution starts with women themselves, rather than settling on the "easy" option of blaming men "for not creating an attractive work environment".

Army of TWO: The Devil's Cartel Trailer Shows Off Co-op

Army of TWO is no longer about dudebro, folks. In fact, with The  Devil's Cartel, efforts are being made to make the franchise a little more serious, and perhaps a little more circumspect. This is an 18-rated game, after all, dealing with some mature themes, with a gritty narrative...but most of all, co-op gunplay. Which is why EA have released a new video for their upcoming TPS, showing off bits of the first level, situated in the middle of the Mexican drug war, and highlighting the split-screen co-op through the medium of skateboarders.

Yup...skateboarders.

Dead Space Bundle | £4.99 | Gamefly | PC

We’ve got another weekend deal for you, this time from Gamefly. The bundle in question provides the first two instalments of the Dead Space franchise for the tidy sum of a fiver, with the saving to be quite a significant sum thanks to several retailers being out of stock .

Dead Space 1 arguably provides the best sci-fi horror experience since System Shock 2, and while Dead Space 2 takes a more action-orientated approach both games are enjoyable experiences in their own right. If you have yet to help guide Isaac Clark against the Necromorphs, now would be a great time to do so before the third instalment’s release. Thanks to geebeegooner @ HUKD!

Need for Speed: Most Wanted | £21.95 | Game Collection | PS3 / 360

  • What: Need For Speed: Most Wanted
  • Where: Game Collection PS3360
  • Current Price: £21.95
  • Need For Speed: Most Wanted PS3360 price comparison

Not quite under the magical £20 barrier, but can you hold out much longer? This is as close to Burnout: Paradise 2 as we're likely to see from Criterion. For what it lacks in barrel rolls it makes up for in officially licensed cars, which are all available from the start providing you can find them in the large open world sprawled out ahead of you.

Crysis 2 Maximum Edition | £5.00 | Origin | PC

With the sequel edging ever closer to release, now is the opportune time to catch up on the series if you have yet to play the second instalment. Origin’s sale puts it at a very welcome price point, and the saving of £7.50 isn’t too shabby either.

Extra multiplayer maps, extra weapons, and the content from the Limited Edition which includes boosters for the Multiplayer, mean those looking to get into the online fray can do so for a seriously reduced price. There’s also the single player too, which wasn’t as great as its predecessor, but for fiver it’s is certainly worth a playthrough. Thanks to DarrellW94 @ HUKD!

EA Join The List Of Bidders For THQ's Assets

It's been thoroughly depressing to see THQ circle the drain, and it might just be about to get worse. Hot on the heels of Ubisoft and Warner Bros., and it would appear that EA have thrown themselves into the mix in the bid to obtain THQ's precious assets.

FIFA 13 | £25.99 | Zavvi | PS3 / 360

This has been EA's fastest selling FIFA yet. Ah, the wonders taking Wayne Rooney's mug off the box will do. The game in the box isn't too shabby either. Improvements to the attacking AI give you more options when going forwards and the first-touch control is excellent. Pro Evo 2013 has made the title race closer than ever, but FIFA is the only option if you're after the authentic experience with all the proper team and player names.

Dead Space 3's achievements have made their way onto the internet, featuring arbitrary numerical rewards for storyline progression, cooperative feats and various (gory) weapon-related shenanigans. Oh, and Peng's back. The list includes story-related achievement descriptions, so spoiler alert.

We were equally impressed and concerned by Dead Space 3 when we saw it in action at E3 2012. Game's out on February 5th, with pre-order customers netting a Limited Edition that includes some extra DLC content.

The second of Crysis 3's seven wonders has been revealed as the thrill of the hunt, as players will be able to stalk targets with stealth camouflage and a massive honking compound bow before taking the perfect shot.

Or go loud with explosive arrows if things don't quite go to plan.

You can watch the first of the 'Seven Wonders' trailers - Hell Of A Town - here.

The first of seven Crysis 3 trailers designed to show off the beauty of the game world (and engine, who are we kidding) takes us to the lush rainforest that used to be New York City. You'll see four minutes of gameplay carefully directed by Albert Hughes (From Hell, Dead Presidents) in order to show off the range of tactics and abilities at Prophet's disposal.

Crysis 3 plans to hark back to the broad levels of the original game, and seems to be on course to do so. I described an early build as "big, fat and tall" in our hands-on preview.
