Turns out 2-week old jet-lag was actually some bizarre illness...fi
nally feeling a little better after missing almost 11 hours of work!!!
LEGO Batman 2 all approved and ready for release in June! Brilliant work by all the team at TT.
LEGO City trending worldwide at #2! Cool!
We quiz GAME Peterborough on Ubi’s new IP, Watch Dogs
MCV: Hi I’m just wondering if you could tell me about a game I’ve heard about called Watch Dogs?
GAME: Well it was announced by Ubisoft on Monday at E3.
What I can say from watching the video is that it’s an open world game where you can switch between characters. There’s a kind of knowledge base of everything in the city on your phone and you can hack into things around the environment and city. There has been no big announcement on story or anything but a guy is killed in a car and that sort of sets things in motion.
MCV: What consoles is it on?
GAME: There’s been no announcement but graphically it looks like it could be one of the last games on the 360.

That said, considering how fluid the battles look, it could be on the next generation of consoles.
MCV: When will it be out?
GAME: There’s been no word on when it will be out. VERDICT:
Good basic knowledge of the game’s premise given how recently the announcement was, and no ridiculous speculation as to when it will arrive.
