WoW players: we have all your patch 2.4 news!

Untold Legends is now gold

Untold Legends: The Warrior's Code is now officially ready for mass production. Sony came out with the proclamation yesterday, so RPG fans should be limbering up those opposables and getting ready for it come March 14.

Players will experience the somewhat-epic storyline of an evil warlord and his band of minions enslaving the innocent people whom you seek to liberate. Okay, so at least the narrative is there in any case. But the real delight in this title is the hack n'slash, dungeon crawling action we all know and love. Here's 'till March-

Ubisoft announces Q1 titles

The PSP is going to see some action in early '06 with Ubisoft confirming a number of games slated for the handheld console. Brothers in Arms will be making an appearance, but no word on whether it will be just another port of Road to Hill 30 or Earned in Blood. Hopefully we might see a brand new installment of the series. Other games include Street Riders (187 Ride or Die), Untold Legends 2, Field Commander, and Tales of Eternia.

G.A.M.E.: PSP presence merely okay

GameSpot held their much publicized event, called the Games and Music Experience, over the weekend in San Francisco. Billed as a mini-E3 by some, the three-day show featured not just the usual game kiosks and random smattering of tight-shirted promo girls (and one cosplayer sighting on Saturday night), but also DJs, bands, hip-hop acts, and an appearance by the site's editors, who entertained attendees with B-list celebrity interviews and Guitar Hero matches.

As expected, Sony's PSP was present at the event's Games On The Go section to show off a range of titles, although the games on display were less spectacular than anticipated. But while most have already been widely available in the market for some time now, a few titles set for release in 2006 did make an appearance, namely SOE's Field Commander, Untold Legends: The Warrior's Code, and Namco's Bounty Hounds.

Just across the way was a rather large booth from Nokia for their N-Gage, which was surprising considering they had already admitted they would stop creating new versions of the gaming phone and redirect their attention from mobile gaming to music and television. Can't say we blame them for trying to eke out one last hurrah, though.

[UPDATE:] Joystiq has a report from a disgruntled gamer about the event here.

Ubisoft to EA: "We're not for sale"

Yes, but they're not exactly closing the book on the idea either. Last December, EA bought a 20% stake in Ubisoft, a move that raised many an eyebrow and brought about rousing commentary on EA's continuing bid for world domination. This time it appears that Ubisoft's made a determined stand on remaining independent, although they've been quoted saying, "If a company offers a strategy and a price satisfactory for staff and shareholders, we will look at it." In other words: If the price is right, we're going whole hog with the merger.

This bit of news shouldn't affect last week's announcement regarding Ubisoft's deal with Sony to publish two new titles for the PSP: Field Commander and Untold Legends: The Warrior's Code. Although it's entirely possible that at some future date we may see EA's ubiquitous company ID mocking us from the game box of Prince of Persia: We Sold Out to the Highest Bidder.
