Grand Theft Auto 5 has surprised many analysts in the gaming industry with its release day income which totaled over 800 million dollars. They originally expected the game to bring in about one billion dollars within the first month of being released but it looks like that goal will be passed up pretty quickly, which has everyone thrilled that the time and investment they made into this game was more than just ‘worth it’. Grand Theft Auto 5 has actually broken the previous release day record that was set by Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 by over 300 million dollars. It took Black Ops 2 to reach a billion dollars in sales, but analysts expect GTA5 to reach that goal in much less time.
On release day, over eight thousand stores remained open past midnight to cash in on the release day’s sales. The next day, many gamers called off of work to play the game, faking an illness or something along those lines. Grand Theft Auto 5 has cost the developers over 270 million dollars to develop and they’ve invested over five years time into development, making the game a very special event for Rockstar Games. The event and its sales were so significant that they’re now being compared to box office movie release-day sales, such as the income figures for Despicable Me 2 and Iron Man 3. Once the game passes a billion dollars in revenue, it can then be considered to have earned revenue equal that of the revenue generated by the previously mentioned movies.

During Ubisoft’s scheduled third-quarter earnings call earlier today, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot announced a new Assassin’s Creed title will be coming sometime during the company’s 2014 fiscal year.
“We are delighted and proud to announce today that in financial year ’14, we will introduce an all-new Assassin’s Creed hero, within an all new team and time period, and we expect it to be another major leap forward for the franchise. It is the benefit of multiple teams working on multiple chapters of the product, each getting several years to make their versions of an Assassin’s Creed game.”
A new Assassin’s Creed title with a new hero and time period are great news as we couldn’t deal with Ubisoft releasing additional versions of Assassin’s Creed 3, similar to how it released three games revolving around Assassin’s Creed 2.

Treyarch has released the third of four DLC map packs for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and with that pack comes a new zombies map. This new zombies map is named Buried. Starting out in the map, you’re spawned in some rafters that contain a few barriers. You’ve got a couple options here: stay in the rafters until you have enough points from killing zombies to buy a machine gun that you only have one chance to get per game, or drop off the rafters and slide down a tunnel to go to an underground town. Once down there, you have a large variety of things to do, including simply killing zombies until you die, running through the haunted house to earn a free ‘perk’, build different items to aid you in your assault against the endless hordes of zombies, or make your way though the infamous grass maze that’s behind the haunted house.
Buried is loaded with different cool features. For example, if you take falling damage so many times, you’ll be granted a special power to do a ‘dolphin dive’ off of a high ledge and when you land, you make a large explosion, killing anything in your way. This is especially useful for the higher rounds of zombies in the case where you’re being overrun and unable to defend yourself with just a gun. Speaking of guns, Buried comes with a new gun that is actually available in all zombie maps. The new gun is called the Ray Gun Mark 2, and it actually shoots rays that can pass through a dozen zombies in a row and can even penetrate thin walls. This ray gun is far better than the original ray gun. It may very well be your best friend if you get into a bind later in a round of zombies.
Ubisoft wowed us with a totally unexpected MMO: Tom Clancy’s The Division. And if not for rumors spread by one of the game’s developers that it might not hit its 2014 release date
A devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City, and one by one, basic services fail. In only days, without food or water, society collapses into chaos. The Division, a classified unit of self-supported tactical agents, is activated. Leading seemingly ordinary lives among us, The Division agents are trained to operate independently of command, as all else fails. Fighting to prevent the fall of society, the agents will find themselves caught up in an epic conspiracy, forced to combat not only the effects of a manmade virus, but also the rising threat of those behind it. When everything collapses, your mission begins.
The Division is set in a could-be near future–one in which the United States has faced a total collapse thanks to a terrorist attack that cripples society with a horrific disease. You’re a soldier among many tasked with saving whatever’s left of civilization in a broken New York City. With some of the most impressive visuals of any game we’ve ever seen, a huge MMO-sized city to explore, and tons of third-person action to keep you busy, The Division appears to be one of the most ambitious projects Ubisoft has tackled yet–and we can’t wait to see the end result.
