      EA have just announced that they have acquired the rights to create a new title in the Bourne universe. They picked up the license from the ashes of Sierra who bit the dust in the ActiBlizz merger.

      Development duties will be handled by Starbreeze, who are also working on another as-yet-untitled title for EA (Project RedLime - rumoured to be Syndicate).

      Consider me interested

      I started Bioshock on it's UK release date in August 07 and really enjoyed working through it. Then I hit a brick wall with a part near the end.

      I tried and tried but couldn't get past it. In the old days I would have kept at it until I'd got past this barrier but I've realized that nowadays my attention span is much shorter and when I hit a game stopper I rarely have the appetite or patience to get past it.

      Now, I'm not advocating that games should be easy - that would be dumb. I just wish that play-testing made some of these difficulty spikes a thing of the past. 

      Last week I went back to Bioshock and managed to make it past the part I'd previously been blocked at and made it to the end with little difficulty. The ending was really great, but I'd have enjoyed it even more if I'd experienced it back in Aug 07 when the plot and characters were fresh in my mind.

      It also made me think that the announced sequel seems a little unnecessary.

      Anyway, a great game that only took me 17 months to complete. For shame.

      Roll call for the Ziff Davis employees who lost their jobs yesterday in 1UP/EGM/UGO debacle.

      I hope you all find new jobs quickly and that the creative teams find a new outlet for their talents.

        Videogames journalism will be losing some great talents and I hope that all of them find a platform for their voices again in the future.

        Damn, this is a bad start to 2009. Bad, bad, bad.

        A sad, sad day.

        The loss of GFW was tough and now, with EGM and 1UP being shuttered/downsized, it truly feels like the end of an era.

        1UP Yours was the show that got me into listening to podcasts and, even if it does continue in some way or another, it won't be close to the same.

        My thoughts are with the Ziff Davis staffers that have lost their jobs at this difficult time - good luck guys and I hope to be hearing from you all again soon.

        That's even worse, at least we got the game.

        Harmonix have been so inconsistent with their international releases.
