Battlefieldo announced plans about #BF3Blackout. Here are the results ...

Yesterday Battlefieldo (one of the largest Battlefield community site) threatened EA / DICE with Battlefield 3 24h blackout caused by "lack of communication between DICE and fans of the game." The complete concept around #BF3Blackout is here, if you want the shorter version, you can look at the article in eurogamer.net.

The ultimatum was that if by March 2nd, EA / DICE don't do anything about it, Battlefieldo will stop publishing information about Battlefield 3 and will lock their servers for 24 hours, inviting everybody who disagrees with the "status quo" to do the same.

DICE which personally I've always thought that are quite open and listening to the community (unlike EA) reacted very quickly, and published this titanic long post containing frighteningly large list of planned changes and fixes in the game. I personally suggest you have the strength to read the whole, to share if there are any interesting things inside. : D Of course, when these changes will take effect is TBA, but at least people at battlefieldo are quite satisfied that their thread worked.: D

EA does have announced that next week will start heading Inside DICE in BF blog and you will inform us of the new things in the game.Personally, I sincerely hope with launch of that section, EA finally deigned to reveal its plans for the new Battlefield 3 DLC that was supposed to be announced "next week" (speech made on February 2). :)

Alan Wake for PC - huge success for Remedy!

With the post in the forum, Remedy announced that the PC version of Alan Wake is a "huge success" for them! Under the "huge success" I mean that for 48 hours the company has recovered their investment for the PC port and the marketing of the game, respectively, after all these 48 hours is all profit for them.

BTW this is opportunity to say that I'd like to review the game, but lately I have no time and I do not know when I will succeed (last night I started the fourth episode), so I'll share some quick impressions:
- If you play heavily story-driven game with thriller elements - This is the game;
- If you have the hardware, PC version looks excellent;
- Strongly recommend playing with headphones on and turn off the HUD (I've never enjoyed so much the fact that developers have included this option);

- Unfortunately, 3D Vision in the game is total FAIL and frankly, I see no chance soon to fix it. :(

Details about Resident evil 6

Today, Capcom released some more details about Resident Evil 6.

  • Here's what I learned from the new press release.
  • As you know, at some point in the game Chris Redfield will end up in China. Now we learned that he will be in a town called Lanshiang;
  • The action in Resident Evil 6 will be developed in 2013;
  • President (which as we know from the trailer is now zombie) is Adam Benford (he is the man who attracts Leon working in secret services) and not the father of Ashley;
  • We have also learned that not only Helena Harper e government agent, but was just in the process of being transferred to the Secret Service to become one of the personal bodyguards of the president when the incident happened;
  • Chris Redfield returns as the leader of the BSAA \ Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance \, as the press information we learn that six months before the events in RE6, Chris has undergone some dramatic personal injury;
  • Still do not know who the mysterious third protagonist, but now officially know that question is a mercenary employed by "bloody conflict in Eastern Europe", where according to reports are increasingly used in bio-organic weapons (BOW). At some point, mercenary question is informed that "he is the man who will save the world" by Capcom here dramatically note that although the individual "does not fully understand the consequences of this, immediately began considering how much money you can earn" ( very useful info, thank you);
  • Ingrid Hunnigan, a member of the Field Operations Support (FOS) and has long worked with Leon, also returned;
  • Zombies also are back,: D as well remove the other can now run, jump at you and even use weapons .... UHUUU!;
  • J'avo e new kind of enemy, BSAA baptized by the Serbian word for "demon" (after a brief word with google translate in Serbian is ђavo). That basically first appeared in Eastern Europe about six months ago RE6. Interestingly, it appears ђavo-one human traits such as the ability to understand speech, to work in a group with other ђavo th and use weapons. Contrary to expectations however, the question being not too friendly, and actually is extremely aggressive. : D Above all, the creature can regenerate, and if you get a serious injury in an area ђavo th (I'd be fun to write it that way) can mutate the part in various forms ... Generally sounds like a very good company;
And finally: 
New management system ... that will allow you to move while Shoot: D
Will also be able to drag and rolling alas, to obscure. Plus improved melee attacks.

"Surprise" - Diablo III is "postponed" for Q2 2012

Everyone suspected that this would happen, but nobody wanted to face the facts (including me). : D

Yesterday during a conference call with the investors, Activision Blizzard announced that in Q1 2012 they are not planning to release a new game of Blizzard Entertainment, but there are two, planned to be released by the end of 2012.

Later in the battle.net forums Bashiok kindly explained that the company never told Q1 2012 for Diablo III, but "early 2012": D and this week they decided that they will enter Q2.

So I start to expect Diablo III in June and StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm at the end of 2012 (although they could comfortably postpone it for Q1 2013) and the World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria optimisticly going in "early 2013" ;) :D

Ultimately, as Jay Wilson said some time ago:

     Our job isn't just to put out a game, it's to release the next Diablo game. No one will remember if the game is late, only if it's great.

So I'll wait, and have fun with the rage comments of  the "angry fans". : D
