Double Fine trying to buy back Costume Quest and Stacking from THQ
Double Fine is trying to buy back the publishing rights on Xbox360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Costume Quest and Stacking which THQ still owns. Unfortunately those games as you saw yesterday were lumped into a lot and they can’t be sold outside of the lot but Double Fine is hopeful.
In a talk with Polygon, Justin Bailey VP of Business development had this to say.
"THQ retained limited distribution rights that we bid on during the previous process to reclaim them prior to their expiration, We are optimistic about regaining these distribution rights, as this process has already demonstrated that when there are parties interested in specific assets, those assets are worth more when sold separately." I hope they hear something from THQ and they get the rights to these games back because they are both unique properties.
Ubisoft Announces Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag for Xbox360, PS3, Wii U, PC.
Ubisoft has announced Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, which introduces a new coarse heir to the century-spanning action series. It seems to be set in the Caribbean and will be in an era of Pirates and Wenches galore.
The game is so far confirmed for PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii U, with the PS3 version including "60 minutes of exclusive gameplay."
This is as by far not surprising considering they stated with the Ezio story being a way for them to work to define AC3 I look forward to them continuing their work model.
Avalanche teases Just Cause 3 announcement
Avalanche Studios founder Christofer Sundberg teasing what appears to be Just Cause 3. He tweeted the image yesterday, a couple weeks after releasing the same character in an action scene on a bike.
What do you think is this Rico Rodriguez the lead character of the Just Cause series or something else altogether? There are hints it could be a Mad Max game though I don’t recall much flying in those movies and who knows all I am aware of is someone “Sundberg” is not talking.
That is all I have for you guys If I can I will post more news as soon as I can. Till then Game on till the dark swallows you into it’s arms.
