They are Groot: Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy?

It is the year 2801. A man weeps as he is forced to play Last of the Summer Wine: A Telltale Adventure. It is the last remaining hitherto unadapted license in the world. He sobs as he remembers Supermarket Sweep: A Telltale Adventure and the living hell that was Fifty Shades of Grey: A Telltale Adventure. A small scream looses his lips as he recalls the day his own husband became a Telltale Adventure. He knows it is only a matter of time before he, too, is adapted. If he can just make Last Of The Summer Wine: A Telltale Adventure – Episode 5: Compo Washes His Hat last as long as he can, he can defer his own terrible fate. Maybe three hours, maybe four. Then he, the last human, will become an episodic narrative adventure game.

If only he – and the rest of humanity – had seen this coming, back in those innocent days of 2016, when Guardians Of The Galaxy: A Telltale Adventure was leaked. Read the rest of this entry »

Beelzebabble: Diablo 4 Rumours Abound

Update: David Brevik has since tweeted that he’s not involved in any Diablo projects at the moment. That’s why you should never listen to gossip.

Alice is away today, so I’m posting a rumour. She’ll be SO MAD when she gets back! Anyway, rumours are circulating that Blizzard might be about to announce Diablo 4 at next month’s Blizzcon. Each rumour on its own is piss-weak, but together they seem to point in that sort of direction. Or perhaps to a big expansion for Diablo 3 [official site]. Or they’re just mucking around to make everyone feel silly. Fortunately I’ve now laced this post with enough doubt and cynicism to excuse myself from concern.

Ghostly Rumours: Destiny 2 On PC?

GOSSIP. TITTLE-TATTLE. RUMOUR. The basest of base discussion, as your mum told the postman in the sauna the other day. At least, that’s what I hear. I also hear that maybe, just maybe, console online FPS-come-hamster-wheel Destiny [official site] might be incorporating PC into its sequel plans.

Red Dead Redemption Remastered Rumoured For PC

I should warn you: Ian Video Games is wearing a cowboy hat. Worse: he’s saying things like “ah fair reckon”. Someone’s filled his head with dreams of Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption [official site] and ah fair reckon it’s you, The Internet. As ever with our Ian, some of what he’s spouting is tripe. No, Ian, no one has found a poster revealing a new Red Dead sequel. However, when Ian says “I tell you whut, them Rockstar varmints are cookin’ up a PC remaster of Red Dead Redemption hoo-eee doggie!” then spits a brown mouthful of ‘chaw’ (it’s toffee), well, that hasn’t been immediately disproven at least.

Leak-o! Duke Nukem 3D: World Tour Rumoured

They’re releasing another Duke Nukem, then. Gearbox are muttering to themselves and engaging in dreadful brandter so yup, it’s on. Predictions: the return of jokes already ten years old when Duke Nukem 3D borrowed them twenty years ago; an awkward attempt to reframe Duke’s earnest trashiness as ‘ironic’; a game hoping to coast on former glories. If rumours and leaks are to be believed, the new game is Duke Nukem 3D: World Tour, a ‘remastered’ version of the 1996 FPS with new content and ugly lighting.

Starcraft HD Kind Of, Sort Of, Maybe in the Works

Blizzard could very well announce an HD remaster of StarCraft next month, if reports from iNews24, a reputable Korean news source, are correct. iNews24 says multiple sources with access to Blizzard’s inside plans suggest that the company will reveal a StarCraft HD remake some time in September.

Rumour: The Witcher’s Gwent Becomes Own Game

You’ll never guess what Ian Video Games heard down at the trademark and patent office! Oh, yes, of course someone said “This is the daftest idea I’ve ever heard”, you’re right there. His patent does make a certain sort of sense if you think about it, though. Inevitably some Frankenstein will make a perpetual motion machine by strapping buttered toast to a cat and hurling it off a roof – but how will they safely attach the toast to the cat? Cushioned heat-resistant toast straps. Always thinking ahead, that Ian.

Anyway, no, the other thing he heard: someone filing a trademark for a standalone version of Gwent, the card game from The Witcher 3.
