El Presidente needs beta testers for Tropico 5, which has just received its first ever gameplay trailer teasing the passages of time we'll be going through as we lead our Caribbean nation - from colony to cosmopolitan.
The clip gives a brief glimpse to the greater customisation of El Presidente, as well as the numerous building projects we'll be commissioning. Can we hold office into the 21st Century?
Just because Slightly Mad Studios has announced racing MMO World of Speed, it doesn't mean something untoward has happened to their Oculus Rift and 4K supporting racer, Project Cars. It's still due in 2014.
To that end the British studio has released a new trailer about a minute long proving it's out this year. Project Cars has been in the works since 2011, and will finally cross the finish line in 2014.
Fancy a bit of Minecraft with online chums? Well there's all that messing about with servers if you want to host your own, so Minecraft creator Mojang has come up with the subscription-based Minecraft Realms.
Mojang will host the Minecraft worlds, which would run the latest builds of the game (not snapshots), and forgo any mod or texture pack support. So, how many bills do they want?

An actual Death Star trench run simulator has been built using the Unity engine. The team behind it have even spliced in movie sounds, dialogue and music. I have you now.

Ubisoft's Rocksmith 2014 will support all of the original game's song DLC, which is something this genre overall has a spotty record (pun!) on. Developer Mike Madavi made the revelation during a Q&A video.
Additional news to delight fans is that the original game's cable is also supported by Rocksmith 2014, so no new bit of wire to hook up your guitar with PC or console; recycle the old.
Namco Bandai has created a teaser site for a new title from developer Project Aces, which is responsible for the Ace Combat titles.
The unbelievably successful hit that was Farming Simulator on PC is now coming to Xbox 360 and PS3 this summer. The farm sim on consoles has an all-new American backdrop for that Smallville vibe, I guess.
Focus Home has released a trailer proving I'm not just messing with you; this is actually happening. Until now your summer was filled with picnics and playtime - now it's back to the farmhand days.
Dean Hall, creator of super mod DayZ, has confirmed he has been approached by both Microsoft and Sony for perhaps investing in a console version. It seems PlayStation 4 is a lot more likely to happen.
Hall isn't so enthused by the way Microsoft doesn't support self-publishing, and then charges $10k per title update, although he liked what he saw "in a lot of cases" with Xbox One.
Such is the odd cult following of Faming Simulator that it's going to get a release on Xbox 360 and PS3. Giants Software will be unleashing their agriculutral best-seller in the first week of September this year.

We've been informed by a few of our viewers that the Reported Attack Page Warning first seen during the Christmas holidays is still being displayed for people with version 17 of Firefox, but we just wanted to let everyone known that the problem is fixed on our end and this is a bug with Firefox that should be fixed tomorrow with the release of version 18.
The upper echelons of Czech Republic's government have now entered the fray over the continued imprisonment of Bohemia Interactive's Ivan Buchta and Martin Pezlar over espionage charges.
Greek authorities have held the pair for over 70 days without trial, alleging they were conducting military espionage. Bohemia says they weren't working for ArmA 3 but on vacation.
Deep space dweller Chris Roberts is sticking with PC for his ambitious Star Citizen because, frankly, the consoles now and even next-gen don't have what it takes to deliver the experience.
The main reason is memory capacity as you "can't do that much with 512MB" of RAM, as opposed to a PC with around 4GB. Roberts looks to today's high-end gamer as tomorrow's normal gamer.

The studio strongly opposes the Greek authorities claim that Pezlar and Buchta were committing acts of espionage. The postcard can have your own design. They'll send a selection at a time.
