Oh January! The month that video games seem to avoid like the plague. You and December just can’t catch a break.
Thanks to the beatdown Silicon Knights took in the courtroom versus Epic Games, Silicon Knights had to destroy all copies of Too Human. That might explain why it is no longer available on Xbox Live’s Games on Demand service.
The start of this year sure makes video games sound awfully violent doesn’t it? Last week we have the über violent Anarchy Reigns, and this week we’ve got this series reboot.
Missed me? Well let’s pretend you do because I totally missed you guys! The last half of December had absolutely nothing coming out hence my absence. You could say game releases are like blood in the water, and I’m the shark. This week, we’ve got all of one game coming out, and that seems to be enough to wake me out of my sharkly slumber.
Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed 3 will receive yet another massive update fixing various bugs and glitches to single player and multiplayer.
I love the lull of December. How there isn’t that many games to write about. How it gives me time to play catch up, however futile that attempt might be. That said, this December has been the weirdest one to date. This is the second week now that something of note is actually coming out, depending on how you want to look at it that is.

Talking about yet another delay to Bioshock Infinite without bringing up certain other games that have done the same thing is going to be tough, but here we go. In a media conference, Ken Levine announced Bioshock Infinite‘s delay by exactly one month from the previously announced release date of February 26, 2013 to March 26, 2013.
Square Enix Pulls Viral Marketing App for Hitman: Absolution on Facebook, Requisce In Pace, Wait Wrong Series
Sometimes companies get so big that it can be hard for everyone in the company to know what everyone else is doing. That’s fine when the only mix up this created is ordering the wrong kind of ink refills, but when the marketing side approves of and releases an incredibly tasteless, misogynistic, and quite possibly illegal viral marketing app to the general populace, you have a real problem at hand. This morning Square Enix released a Facebook app, “Hire Hitman” that lets you create a contract with Agent 47 of the Hitman series to take out your friends. Within hours, the app was pulled from Facebook and Square Enix issued a statement of apology.
December has arrived, one of the most notoriously quietest month of the year when it comes to game releases. The number of games I’ve seen come out in December that’s even remotely worth giving a damn about can be counted on one hand. By the end of this week, that number will… still be countable on one hand.
