Sledgehammer confirms that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare won’t be released on Wii U
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to play GoldenEye 007 against the real James Bond? Unlike most of the folks (myself included) who spent hours blasting their friends in the Facility with Proximinity Mines, Jimmy Fallon can actually make it happen.
Pierce Brosnan was on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon last night to promote his new movie, The November Man. As the interview was winding down, Fallon pulled out an N64 and got to live out one of his childhood fantasies by battling Bond in a deathmatch. As you’d expect (especially if you’re Auric Goldfinger), Brosnan is not an expert GoldenEye player and Fallon wipes the floor with him.
Duh, nuh, na, na, duh, nuh, nuh.
The Behemoth has released a teaser video for their next game, the still untitled Game 4, and this glimpse behind the curtain has revealed a few things about the in-development title. For example, we now know that the game is of a genre The Behemoth has never tackled before and that BattleBlock Theater‘s Will Stamper will return to narrate the action. We also learned that it takes place in the aftermath of an alien bear’s outer space swan dive into Earth.
However, after typing and re-typing that opening paragraph, I am left with several rather important questions…
1. Are they serious about the bear thing? They must be serious, right?
2. What’s up with the science-y hexagons?
4. Why can’t I play it now?
To answer that last question, The Behemoth has confirmed that we’ll all get a chance to play Game 4 at this year’s PAX Prime convention, which will be held from August 29 through September 1 in Seattle, Washington. Provided a giant space bear doesn’t crash into the planet.

The Xbox One received a pair of new games in this week’s Xbox Live Games Store… and both are all about relaxing.
For example, what’s more relaxing than choosing your character and then busting the heads of a horde of demons? It calms the nerves and it rewards you with copious amounts of loot. I speak, of course, about Diablo III. Blizzard’s action RPG comes to the Xbox One as part of the Ultimate Evil Edition, which includes the original game and the Reaper of Souls expansion.
Also available this week is The Golf Club, a brand new golf simulation from a brand new studio. HB Studios has created a golf game that offers procedurally generated courses for endless rounds of golf. Fore!

Michael Condrey, the co-founder of Sledgehammer Games, has confirmed (via Twitter) that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare won’t be released on the Wii U. It looks like the decision came from Activision, possibly as a response to lower-than-expected sales of Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Call of Duty: Ghosts, which were released on the Wii U in 2012 and 2013, respectively:
@1422644 no, no WiiU. That was an Activision decision. We are focused on XboxOne, PS4, and PC.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be released on November 4 for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
Atari has announced plans to remake two games that are responsible for the rise of the survival horror genre, 1982′s Haunted House and 1992′s Alone in the Dark. Both games will be available this Fall, exclusively for the PC.
The Haunted House remake will simply be titled Haunted House and is in development at Dreampainters Software. The team is best known for the indie horror hit Anna.
Meanwhile, Alone in the Dark will be remade as Alone in the Dark: Illumination by Pure FPS. The team currently has no history and no official website, so they’re a bit of a mystery.
Both games will be playable at this year’s PAX Prime convention, which will be held in Seattle from August 29 through September 1. The publisher will also be showcasing their free-to-play FPS Minimum and a pair of upcoming RollerCoaster sims: RollerCoaster Tycoon World for the PC and RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile for mobile devices.
CD Projekt RED, The developer of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, has just released a 35-minute gameplay demo of the highly anticipated game.
The video opens with Geralt riding up to, and then exploring the city of Novigrad, sometime after killing the griffin seen in the E3 gameplay trailer. Afterwards, Geralt sets out to continue on his quest, where we get to see how the fast travel system works. Developers from CD Projekt RED are also on hand to provide commentary on the video’s content.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is set to release across the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One platforms on February 24, 2015.
