Dates for your geek calendar! (Preview! Part 2)

July

August – 20th August will finally see the return of Sam Fisher.  Published by Ubisoft, exclusively for  PlayStation3, Xbox360 and PC.  From looking at the trailer this sees to be located somewhere in the Middle East.  As appose to previous games where he has been based in America, for example Washington DC, or other locations on the globe.  This time around he dons a new suit, while still focusing on the incredible stealth needed to complete all previous six Splinter Cell games.  New ‘bad guys’ are back bringing with them a whole new meaning to the words ‘bad guy’ and ‘interrogation’.  Could this new release date (pushed back from Spring 2013) hint towards when the two new consoles are to be released?  Either October/November 2013.

Playing the game with stealth or at a more fast paced, action speed, the choice is yours.

September – Geek Event – Eurogamer Expo

The 26th to 29th of  September sees London’s very own Earls Court transformed into Eurogamer Expo.  In short this is the United Kingdom’s version of E3.  Over 50,000 people attended Eurogamer Expo last year (source; http://www.eurogamer.net/expo/) and this year the event promises to be even bigger.  There are many different categories of what to expect at this event. After attending a  tournaments or developer sessions you can head over and visit a gaming industry fair, (this is a must for anyone who is eager to have a career within the gaming world) or have a hands-on experience trying out many different consoles which include not only PC but handhelds as well.

As this is a major event we will post a special blog during the 26th to 29th of September to inform all our blog followers what is happening, so if you can not attend you will discover the latest news first.

You may be wondering which organisations are attending, for now this is being kept top secret.  With partners last year that included PS3, WiiU and Xbox 360 and supported by EA, Onlive and Ubisoft this will be a very special event.

Please note:  As announced on the forum by the Managing Director of Expo, there will be no ‘booth babes’ at Eurogamer Expo this year.  For more information please see the forum link below at the end of this blog.
