Yep, more busyness to report -- last week we released our PC & Console Gamer Holiday Guide 2010 as you probably know (definitely check it out if you haven't though -- I enjoy it as a buying guide and a retrospective). Staff has been harder at work than ever, I think. This week is definitely a breath of fresh air, not that there's any shortage of interesting things happening or coming up.
Since it's been another while since the last report, I'll do my best to deliver only the essentials.
Upcoming reviews: Arcania, Gothic 4 (waiting on a performance patch), Gran Turismo 5, Fist of the North Star, Dragon Ball 2, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood (should get this early), Call of Duty: Black Ops (PS3 review then PC-centric review), Beat Hazard Ultra (early next year), Donkey Kong Country, Marvel Superhero Squad, Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom, Sonic Colors, Marvel stuff from Sega, Epic Mickey.
Making lots of progress with Konami (loved our Lords of Shadow review, big contest incoming), Capcom (loving my mod and tweak guides and also LP2 review -- very gratifying as a fan, fulfilling as a writer), Bethesda, Microsoft, Sony, MTV, Nintendo -- 2011 will be the year of Neoseeker!!! No really, it should be huge, though. :)
Upcoming features/contests: New Vegas playthrough -- I'll be documenting my playthrough accompanied by screenshots and gampelay videos. I'll make it fun, don't worry. Might pair it with a contest -- readers share their best stories for New Vegas swag. Besides that we've got six New Vegas Steam codes to give out, Lords of Shadow copies and maybe other stuff, Lost Planet 2 codes...and a bunch of other stuff I can't even keep track of at the moment. Also it's the last day for our Black Ops contest.
Wikis: The Fallout: New Vegas wiki is getting lots of love from user Paradox and myself, and will be getting even more this week. The entire staff basically is obsessed with the game, to be honest. If you have the PC version (or will be getting it from our upcoming contest..), you'll be very interested to check out the mod guide I've drawn up. I've seen every guide like it I think so far and I honestly believe it's the definitive resource for the community's best at the moment, and I intend to keep it that way by updating compulsively.
All of the really noteworthy reviews are in the holiday guide, so here's the news:
- Netflix popularity exceeds BitTorrent
- Metacritic wants game reviewers to make memorable criticism
- Capcom says new DmC Dante controversy 'part of the strategy'
- Parasite Eve heading to PlayStation Network
- Deus Ex: Human Revolution PC sporting DX 11 features, Eyefinity support
- Gran Turismo 6 in development
- Silent Hill film sequel to be based on Silent Hill 3
- Square Enix cuts swastikas from Black Ops in Japan
- Microsoft: Xbox LIVE Gold subscription fee hike needed to maintain quality
Hm, come to think of it, a monthly report seems best. What do you think?
