Sports Interactive nerfed real world players for Football Manager 2015

Cristiano Ronaldo is a freak, statistically speaking. “Ronaldo’s scored 14 goals in 8 games this season," Sports Interactive studio director Miles Jacobson explains. “If that happened inside FM we would have people crying bug and calling the game every name under the sun.

“So, sometimes we have to balance differently from the real world."

Rome 2 DLC adds Massilia faction for free. Black Sea Colonies announced

Creative Assembly may be spooling up for Total War Attila’s release date but they’re still releasing new factions for Rome 2. Better still, they’re giving away one of those factions for free.

On 20 November everyone who owns Rome 2 will find themselves able to play with the new Greek faction Massilia.

That same day also sees the release of the new Black Sea Colonies DLC.

Valkyria Chronicles releases in 10 days, discounted for preorder

Better late — very late — than never. I was thrilled to hear that PC gamers would finally be getting a chance to enjoy Valkyria Chronicles, which was a much-needed breath of fresh air for the squad-based tactical wargame at a time when the genre seemed all but abandoned.

Now, we only have ten days to wait until this gorgeous combination of JRPG, third-person shooter, and turn-based wargame finally comes to the PC.

Football Manager 2015 release date set for November 7 (after traditional two week beta)

The new year’s Football Manager for Windows, Mac and Linux will launch comfortably in time for Christmas on November 7, Sports Interactive have announced. There’s a beta version available if you pre-order, and careers started there will carry over into the final game.

This iteration features the most dramatically revamped Match View since the switch to 3D - achieved with a little help from the Sega Europe PC studio massive.

Alien: Isolation slips horribly from a nearby vent onto the Steam Store today

Consult our Steve’s Alien: Isolation review, and you’ll learn that the official site stance on Creative Assembly’s first ever FPS is that it’s really top stuff. Which is odd, because the sensations he describes are distressing in the extreme.

“The alien is a constant, unscripted and exhausting psychological threat that follows you throughout the game," he writes.

Alien: Isolation is out today. Here’s Creative Assembly's launch trailer, to sell you on the concept of constant, voluntary exhaustion.

Football Manager documentary screenings are one-night-only - and selling out

Football Manager isn’t just the sim for PC users whose gaming education began and ended with Encarta. It’s the reliable biscuit base of male existence in the UK, where the game has spawned books, stand-up shows, and now a documentary.

An Alternative Reality will be shown in 35 cinemas in the UK and Ireland tomorrow evening - and via 47 broadcasters across the world.

Alien: Isolation review

Alien: Isolation review

Alien: Isolation is a first person stealth horror game in which you, a human full of the blood and guts you require to survive, must hide from and evade an eight foot tall alien creature who wishes to poke a hole in you such that all of your blood and guts spill out on to the floor.

It is this narrative conflict, this dramatic dispute over whether your insides should be inside of you, that is central to Alien: Isolation. It's a terrifically scary game by The Creative Assembly, a studio who've expertly engineered an alien AI of such worrying cleverness that I'm not totally convinced it hasn't crept out of my monitor and is standing behind me right this second.

Here's the Alien: Isolation advert currently upsetting telly-watchers

Play Alien: Isolation, and you will have a horrible time. That’s the way Sega and Creative Assembly are pitching next week’s blockbuster to the masses sat in front of their TVs. 

Leave behind your sofas, the advert hisses. Leave behind your houses stuffed with cavity wall insulation where there should be salivating xenobeasts. Come and crawl on your hands and knees through an off-white spacetomb instead.

Total War: Attila revealed - where Winter, and Barbarians, are coming

Total War: Attila revealed - where Winter, and Barbarians, are coming

Total War: Attila’s main enemy is climate change. In this new standalone Total War game, Creative Assembly have built a campaign driven by an ever-lengthening winter, with each passing year seeing more territory become inhospitable to settlers, forcing factions to migrate south, fighting their way to warmer climes.

There’s a million-strong Mongol horde, too, about to mount a Barbarian Invasion, but I think climate change is the key issue.

Alien: Isolation trailer reveals survivor mode. Challenge your friends to play with your predator

Alien: Isolation is already a challenge, you’re being hunted by an AI alien that is stronger, faster, and, certainly in my case, smarter than you. Your weapons can’t kill it and your items can only ever distract it for a short while. So, naturally, Creative Assembly made a mode where it’s significantly more difficult.

Survivor mode pits you against the alien, limits your resources, and gives you a time limit. On the plus side you now get a lovely score at the end which you can compare with your friends.

Football Manager movie An Alternative Reality: The Football Manager Documentary screenings announced

Football Manager may not be something you’d immediately expect to spawn a feature-length documentary but An Alternative Reality: The Football Manager Documentary is a thing and if you live in the UK then it may be coming to a Vue cinema near you.

The documentary charts the history of the famous football simulator and how it’s found fans around the world and influenced the sport itself.

On 7 October, for one night only, the film will be on show in 26 Vue cinemas around the UK.

Alien: Isolation PC system requirements published ahead of October release date

Alien: Isolation PC system requirements published ahead of October release date

Alien: Isolation might be scary but is there anything scarier than the prospect of a game releasing that your computer can’t run? It sends shivers up my spine, down my spine, and then back up again like some sort of fear elevator.

Happily, Creative Assembly don’t want to distract from the fear of their game and so have published Alien: Isolation’s minimum and recommended system requirements ahead of launch.

Alien: Isolation PC trailer shows why it’s silly to run from an alien

Both the Alien: Isolation preview events I’ve attended started the same way, someone telling me: “Don’t run from the alien. You won’t escape." The AI xenomorph will hear you and give chase, cutting you down before you can get away.

Rather than tell those of you eagerly anticipating October's release of Alien: Isolation, Creative Assembly have made video showing what happens when you run.

Sega claims that Gearbox is just as responsible for the marketing of Aliens: Colonial Marines as the publisher

Sega claims that Gearbox is just as responsible for the marketing of Aliens: Colonial Marines as the publisher

The legal drama surrounding Aliens: Colonial Marines and the class action lawsuit against publisher Sega and developer Gearbox continues, with both parties attempting to place the blame on the other. Court documents filed this week by Sega allege that Gearbox was just as responsible for the marketing, and thus should be included in the suit. 

The suit claims that the game was falsely advertised, particularly at E3 2011, where Pitchford and co showed off a demo to press that wasn’t representative of the actual game.

Gamescom 2014: Hands-on with Alien: Isolation

Don’t go to a house of horrors twice. You learn all the false walls and where the skeletons will lunge at you. Similarly, spend enough time with Alien Isolation and you can spot the strings.

This isn’t so much a criticism of the game as it is a call for houses of horrors to employ aliens because, for all that I’ve learned about how Alien Isolation works, it still scares the crap out of me.

Football Manager 2015 release set for November; buy now for beta access

Don’t tell our Fraser about this, yeah? He’s convinced the decline of pre-orders is good for everyone, and that’s great in principle. But Sega will let us play Football Manager 2015 two weeks early if we buy it now. And really, how much is football going to change in the next three months? Unless they introduce a new rule that makes it okay to go over the lines so long as you kick the ball back in straight away. But it’ll probably be fine.
