I came across this. It's next months issue of PC PowerPlay(A large australian mag). This is the cover of next months issue but they can't even preview it on there site and considering it's on the cover I'm guessing it's not 'Billy Bob's Outback Shooter'

They say "Australia first" which means another source might actually break the news but the NDA is there until April 9th so I can't imagine it's just any already announced game, that would make no sense(would it?).


This is going to be one awesome issue, because we have the Australian First Look at CENSORED, the latest CENSORED from CENSORED... what? What's going on? Every time I try to talk about CENSORED it gets censored.

It must be because we're under NDA until April 9 - the very day the issue goes on sale! So I can't tell you anything about CENSORED and how the CENSORED has taken a completely fresh look at the way CENSORED CENSORED CENSORED.

So, any ideas of who that character might be? Or the game? It looks like Prototype 2 to me. Others think Fear 3. Whatever it is, I'm hoping this won't be a Game Informer type bullshit(The exclusive game then will probably be Portal 2 or something:lol ).

Ahh, PC PowerPlay. How I used to enjoy their reviews and articles.

Stuffed if I know what this could be. Any Aussie studios working on anything big?

Prototype 2 since it's a PC magazine.

I'm confused, why do people think a PC magazine would announce a PS3 exclusive title (infamous)? Unless it's getting a PC port which would make no sense at all.

I suddenly realised that I was thinking, "what game could this be a sequel to", and became rather sad.

how does it look like anything? the only reason prototype kinda makes sense is the background colour

Does [PROTOTYPE] really warrant a sequel/prequel? The crimson aura does look a lot like that.

I say something else. The contours look like the person is wearing a helmet of sorts and he is wearing military grade pants.

It's a way to be on the safe side of all this bullshit announcement of announcements. If the thread title is "Big Game being revealed next month!" and it's not a big game, people will eat this thread (and the mag) up. If it's "New game revealed next month" and is revealed earlier by other websites and then revealed by the mag, people will say "WTF? OLD NEWS!" similar to that of Gametrailers TV's revelation of SOCOM 4 which was cockblocked by others. Adding a "maybe" will not hype anyone... :p

I hate threads that are called "HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT NEXT MONTH!" and then it turns out to be a DJ Hero preview, Fallout: Vegas "exclusive" or a wallpaper on the official site. So I add "possibly" rather than having another failed announcement thread.

I wasn't falling over the "possibly" part.

I was implying that the whole title is stupid. Or better, that the whole subject is stupid. Why is it news that NEXT MONTH, there is going to be a GAME ANNOUNCED, possibly A BIG ONE, but MAYBE NOT. That description applies to every month (or even day) of every year since the start of video gaming. It's a stupid as the announcement of announcement of announcements, or the news that a Nintendo is working on new hardware, or that EA is working on some games.

But I guess a vague cover with a silhouette is reason enough to make this into a big deal. And again, this is not a dig at the person making the thread, because if he hadn't done it, someone else would've.

I was all ears at console game, until I noticed the magazine itself :lol It's a goddamn PC magazine, so this is a PC game or multi-platform, but the first reveal is on PC cover. I don't know, F3AR?

Well done, junior.

But everyone already figured that out 24h ago.
