Battlefield 4 survey hints at features

An official Battlefield 4 survey has made mention of naval combat, additional dynamic environments and more.

In the survey the text says that "Battlefield 4 extends the front past the shoreline with the addition of intense and dramatic water-based combat. It also makes mention of "Pilot attack boats, RHIBs [rigid-hulled inflatable boats], and jet skis on swelling seas and stormy oceans.

"Experience a more dynamic battlefield where no two games will ever be the same," the survey adds. "Blow the foundations of a dam and flood the area of combat. Bump into a vehicle and its alarm will give away your position. Cut the power to a building and envelop the enemy in a cloak of darkness. Your actions physically change the battlefield in real time, providing interactive game environments that react to your every move."

Details of the survey come via MP1st, although EA has since responded saying that while the survey is real, details of the game are yet to be confirmed.

Capcom confirms Phoenix Wright for the West

Capcom has today confirmed that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies will be available to purchase digitally on Nintendo 3DS across Europe and North America in Autumn 2013.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies, previously announced for the West as Ace Attorney 5, sees the return of courtroom hero Phoenix Wright.

It's down to Phoenix Wright and his team at the Wright Anything Agency to discover the cause of the destruction. Players will have to battle it out in court against Gaspen Payne, the younger brother of Winston Payne from previous Ace Attorney titles, as they defend the accused.

There was no mention of cost or a retail release.

When I read the Gay Marriage thing I thought it was related to them censoring Tharja's ass XD Nice to see Phoenix Wright coming back tho. Was expecting them to go for Phoenix Wright/Layton first since it would be a great opportunity to get more people into that series via Layton's popularity

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
