The Marvellous Miss Take Sneaks Onto Steam Next Week

It’s a bright and sunny day in London, which should be your first clue that something is amiss. You come home to find your home has been ransacked and a lifetime of collecting priceless works of art is now reduced to nothing but a memory. The only solution? Don a large and fabulous hat, walk confidently into your artwork’s new home and effortlessly grab armfuls of your belongings to a bouncy jazz soundtrack.

Welcome to The Marvellous Miss Take, which sees the stylish Sophia Take trying to reclaim her collection of magnificent artwork from a number of central London art collectors. It’s clear it’s a game about thieves, as its November 20th release date has popped up out of the shadows and caught me completely by surprise.

Date Worthy: The Sims 4 Due For Release Next Autumn

Looks about right.

The Sims 4‘s big new feature is that your sims’ emotions unlock context-sensitve actions and change their abilities. That means, as an example, that depressed sims make better novelists. I am here today to confirm that being sleepy and hungry does not make you better at writing game news on the internet. Also, that The Sims 4 is due out next Autumn, as picked up by Blues News.

Outlast At Last Out In September

Oh yeah, Outlast! The spooooooky game set in an asylum, where the enemies are Hooman Beeings. I’d almost forgotten it, since we last mentioned it in November, but now the veteran-developed horror has a release date and a price. You want to know what they are? Well, you’ll have to walk down this terrifying corridor.

It’s About Time (& Space): Antichamber Release Date

You’d need a six dimensional tongue to describe Alexander Bruce’s Antichamber. It is a game and a psychological experiment. I’m not even sure if writing about it is a good idea, or if it’s somehow judging from it’s non-euclidean dimension. It exists in a potential form right now, but it’ll soon exist in exchange for money and a few frazzled braincells. Bruce has descended from the higher plane, where time is of no consequence and everyone has both completed Antichamber and yet never played it, to let us earthly types know it’s out on in the fifth quadrangle of hex space, just before the Platnar’s ascendance. That is a fixed point in time. I’m just running it through the un-gibbernator to let you know. Put on ze goggles.

Wheelie Good News! Trials Evolution On PC In March

It’s obvious that RedLynx stopped loving us. We were there for them, day and night, attending to playing their games. But then oh look who should stride in with their long legs and big, muscley arms but Microsoft, flashing their wallets and giant cars. And Trials really became an Xbox thing, leaving us staring at the space where RedLynx used to be, sobbing.

Oh, but who’s this crawling back to us? Microsoft’s big money and tall hats weren’t everything you hoped for, eh? You think you can just waltz back in here, play with our hearts like they’re days old treacle pudding? Yes, quite correct, because Trials Evolution is bloody brilliant.

Ace Of Spades Out 9 Days Before End Of World

Blocky multiplayer shooter that’s not at all Minecraft with guns, Ace of Spades, is coming out 12/12/12, which is the most terrifying date of all time. Think about it. It’s 6/6/6 times two! The number of the beast, doubled. And as John points out, it’s nine days before the apocalypse. What’s worse is that it will cost 9.99 in the currency of the beast (dollars). If you have a mirror strategically placed on your ceiling, close your eyes and say “Notch” three times. Now look up! It says 6.66! And it’s on the digital distribution platform of the beast, Steam. Why? What would happen if you spilled a drink on the Devil? What would come off Mister Hellpants? That’s right! Steam… what’s that noise? Get out of the house. Flee for your life! It’s coming.

STRIKE! PES 2013 Shooting Hoops On 21st September

Oh good grief, not ANOTHER zombie game.

Which is your favourite foot-to-ball game? Mine is Semi-Professional Sunday Soccer V. What? Yours isn’t? YOU ARE STUPID AND WRONG! Let’s fight about this, while I chant some words to a popular 80s hit about how you are less masculine than I. Now let us consume liquid until we are ill or in prison.

It sickens me when people say RPS is out of touch. Also, PES 2013 has a release date. Is it in 2013? Don’t be silly. It’s the 21st of this very month.

WoW’s Mists Of Pandaria Out 25th September

It was their choice.

World Of Warcraft’s surelyitreallycan’tbereal update, Mists Of Pandaria – the April Fool’s joke writ large – has a release date at long last. It’ll be in the shops (shops?) on the 25th September. It’s going to cost a bloody enormous £30 in a box, but of course the digital version, not requiring a significant cut go to the store, price of packaging, shipping, etc, will be… wait, £30. Er. There is of course a Collector’s Edition at twice the price, and a Digital Deluxe containing the non-physical bonuses for £40. And you can now pre-order.

Endless Space About To Begin, 4th July

Space may be endless, but life isn't. Eh? EH?

My plan is to release a 7X game. eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate, eXasperation, eXboyfriend, eXit ab urso actus. But until my great day reaches us, you’ll have to put up with just the four Xs, and as soon as the 4th July. That’s the date that’s just been put on Endless Space, Amplitude’s scifi strategy that’s looking rather good.
