Following news this week was a pain in the ass, let me tell you. 3DS, 3DS, 3DS... that was about the only thing discussed. The marketing division of Nintendo really outdone themselves this time. Finding interesting bits of info about our dear PC games among the whole Nintendo console circus was a bit of a challenge. Nevertheless, there were some interesting items, especially one that concluded the week.

So without further discussion, here's a week during which:

A dude named Duke is back maybe this time Forever (?), Deus Ex: Human Revolution experience some communication issue, Arkane studio is patching a pretty old game and I was really fed up to hear about the 3DS!

This Foxhole week appears to have been pretty basic with few real game news coming our way. Most AAA titles are still polishing their weapons for the big rush with releases that should take place between the end of January for the first ones and June 2011. So aside from the first info available for the upcoming The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim of Bethesda Software it was a rather slow week punctuated by more company statements than screenshots. A week during which:

THQ follow the path of Bioware and Bethesda, F.E.A.R. 3 is delayed... again, the guys at Frictionnal Games found the bright light in PC gaming, Bethesda wants you to experience *real* combat in Skyrim, Jowood experiences difficulties and The Foxhole almost forgot to wish itself an happy birthday.


Foxhole Review: The Witcher Director's Cut Edition PDF Print E-mail

Yeah, we are a few weeks away from the release of the second opus The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and still we review the first game. Why now? Well because it's as good a time as any, The Director's Cut edition (basically the uncensored version of the game) was made available in North America only a few months ago and... why not? To put it quite frankly, this game is a little gem of RPG gaming that aged rather well. I had as much blast replaying it to finish the review during the past month as I had when I first played it a long time ago. Furthermore, if you intend to play The Witcher 2 and still have to play the first The Witcher, it would be a shame to not go for it waiting for the upcoming sequel.

So go read our review of The Witcher and see what you can expect.

Welcome to the first issue of The Foxhole Week. As obviously the concept of independent daily news hasn't worked in ages for us (remember this is a hobby, not a real life job and real life has ways to remind you that other things need to be done rather than playing games and writing game related news) I decided to go with a new form of news. No more independent article for each news item available daily but rather a weekly edition featuring the more prominent (or amusing, or delirious or whatever pleases us) news. That should help with keeping things easier to manage in the spare time schedule. So here we go for the first issue of The Foxhole Week during which:

Bioware unveil the first DLC for their upcoming Dragon Age 2, Ubisoft start to scrap their awful DRM scheme, Eidos developers are about to reveal the worst kept secret of the company during the upcoming Game Developers Conference in San Francisco and I had my place electricity redone (yay!)

It has been several months since the release of Mass Effect 2 but we finally managed to put a review together. As good things must travel in pair (and that the delay allowed us to do it), we throw in the deal a review of the DLC released so far by Bioware (but only the DLC containing at least one additional mission).

Each can be accessed via the convenient links below:

If you've been following the Mass Effect 2 DLC (and who hasn't?) then you'll know that, apart from new armors that you just can't seem to pry the friggin' helmets off of, they have much, MUCH more in store for you. It's almost obscene how much new content is coming your way, much like a tsunami of awesome that...

...dial it back a bit. Members of the Cerberus Network just got the Arc Projector weapon for free a few days ago -- I made a krogan do the chain-lightning cha-cha and it was sweet -- but one of the two upcoming DLCs will not be gratis this time.

As we are a few days away from the launch date for Mass Effect 2, Bioware unveils the Cerberus Network (no link since the thing is for customers only), a site that will be reserved to original purchasers of the game, features being unlocked by a "one use" activation code that will be included with all the game copies whether they are standard or collector. The Cerberus Network will allow legit customers to have access to additional content at "no extra charge" said Bioware officials and that apparently right from day one (those who will buy a used copy will be able to access Cerberus too but only after having bought a new activation code; take the money where it is is always a philosophy, maybe not the brightest but still...).
