Since our staff is responsible for covering pretty much everything related to the video game industry on a daily basis, it can be tough to post all the stories we think our readers would like to see. Videos go unwatched, new release dates are missed and silly quotes just float away without ever being heard. So, instead of ignoring the news that slipped through the cracks each week, we decided to put it all in one convenient place!
This week, Divekick gets a price and date, you can help create an achivement for Fable Anniversary and much more.

Big Rocket Studio, a new development studio made up of some former Hydravision employees recently announced a co-op brawler called Obscure.

As such Obscure has now been renamed Final Exam , complete with a shiny new website. Head over there for more details, including a bunch of new screenshots.

More details on Playstation Plus version of ‘Driveclub’
Evolution Studios have clarified some details about Driveclub, their upcoming racing game that will be free to Playstation Plus members when the Playstation 4 launches later this year. When asked if the PS Plus version would be the same as the retail version Evolution has this to say: “Yes, the PS Plus version will be the exact same as the full version, except that it may be missing a few assets, such as cars or tracks, that will be found in the full version”
It remains unclear just how much content will be missing from the PS Plus version, but you will be able to purchase the rest of the games content to upgrade the PS Plus version.
