With the amount of news we have to cover each week, some stories are bound to slip through the cracks. Trailers go unnoticed and announcements go unheard. To help remedy this problem, we place a few of the more important pieces of info into a convenient little package.
This week there’s talk THQ creditors, a mysterious rating for an unknown Bethesda game called Endless Summer, and more.
Bethesda’s ‘Endless Summer’ found on Australian rating board
An unknown game was found on the Australian classification board with the title Endless Summer. Rated for those 15 and up, the game is described as having “strong horror themes and violence.” Beyond a 2014 release date, no other information is known, but this could somehow relate to the recently announced Evil Within.
THQ creditors claim hundreds of millions owed
Much of the drama following the bankruptcy of THQ has been resolved, but the trouble is far from over. The various parties involved still claim that more than $200 million is owed. An astounding amount of people are still owed some amount of money, with everyone from Microsoft to a Tennessee tax assessor listed.
Double Fine is looking for just under $600,000 in royalties for Costume Quest and Stacking. Tatoo artist Christopher Escobedo is seeking $4.16 million because of an apparent copyright violation in UFC: Undisputed 3. The sheer amount of cash at play here is staggering, but we won’t know much more until the case ends in May.
