Just a reminder not to believe anything you read today. The internet is full of lies and deception today. Actually, that really doesn't differentiate it from other days. How about, people are actively trying to deceive you today online. Nope, same problem. People are just making things up out of thin air and posting them as fac ... damn!
So, basically what I'm saying is that the internet is acting normal. Just, maybe, a little moreso.
As for the week at large, after a wonderful few weeks of big releases, we get a bit of a breather. Trion, makers of the underrated MMO Rift, are launching Defiance this week, an MMO Shooter that is paired up with a SyFy Network show that launches later this month. As if I weren't skeptical of any MMO that hits the market these days, there's something about this co-branding with SyFy -- which has never prematurely pulled support for a new show -- that feels shaky.
That said, Trion knows what they are doing, and the fact that the game enters a largely untapped MMO space on consoles suggests it's possible this will be successful. It's something I'll keep an eye on.
Also this week, Cities in Motion 2, a transportation simulation from Paradox for the PC, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge for the WiiU, 360 and PS3.
