bloodthirsty teenagers casual gamers to live out their basest gunplay fantasies in a socially acceptable fashion compete online, while trash-talking endlessly over a headset being socially engaged, it seemed as though publishers Activision had found a licence to print money.

Launch sales of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare were down 48.5 per cent compared to last year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
Both Infinite Warfare and Blops 3 launched on a similar Friday in November. Both games had a huge marketing push. But, for a number of reasons, Infinite Warfare sold only half as well.

In the late ’90s, when the SNES ruled the world and Bill and Hillary lived at the White House, Japanese publishing house Kaneko commissioned a side-scroller for the US market, based on the exploits of Socks – the First Cat incumbent.
Taking potshots at political figures across the spectrum, Socks the Cat Rocks The Hill was well received but short-lived. Just before the game’s release, Kaneko closed its US operation, leaving developers in the lurch and the game relegated to YouTube clips and forum discussions.
Now, with Hillary destined for the White House and Clintonesque in-jokes more relevant than ever, the developers have apparently regained the rights.
Currently past the $15,000 mark on Kickstarter, the idea is to finish and reissue the game for modern systems. The funding deadline closes on November 8th.
This year’s Football Manager game (TAFKA Championship Manager, lapsed fans) will simulate Brexit in the transfer market.
Providing players with three perspective scenarios as time rolls on, the in-game economy will either have a soft Brexit, with free movement of players and staff around the EU; an exemption made for sportspeople similar to entertainers; or a hard Brexit that restricts movement of players and staff.
Says creator Miles Jacobson:
“We usually try and keep politics out of the game because nobody wants it rammed down their throat.
“But we were left with an interesting situation this year when the people of Britain voted to leave the EU and it wouldn’t have felt right to leave that out. It’s something we had to reflect in the game.
“So we sat down with the research guys and started to plan how we might put it in.”
