Apple are having their big WWDC 2014 press conference later today, where they’ll unveil their big plans for the year. You’ve read our predictions for what Apple will announce at the show, but now it’s time for the actual event. Join us for our live blog, starting at 10AM Pacific/1PM Eastern/6PM London. Expect to see new versions of iOS, OS X, as well as some new hardware – possibly the iWatch. Whatever happens, we’ll have full coverage right here.
It’s the biggest technology event of the year, when Tim Cook will take to the stage to announce the world’s largest company’s plans for the next few months. The rumour mill is in overdrive, but what can you actually expect from Apple at WWDC 2014?
Our good friends at Harmonix have spent the last couple of weeks trying to Kickstart the remake of Amplitude, the beloved PS2 rhythm game. The campaign ends in 48 hours and they’re 83% of the way there, but they still need an extra $130,000 if they’re to meet their $775,000 goal.

Most importantly, you’d be helping this niche little title get a new lease of life.

We’ve got our first glimpse of Rocksteady’s new Batman title, and it’s looking great.
Just in case you thought Watch_Dogs and Assassin’s Creed Unity weren’t enough, Ubisoft have just announced Far Cry 4. It takes the usual Ubisoft open-world approach and applies it to a perilous Himalayan region, Kyrat, where a self-appointed king rules. Presumably, it’ll be your job to take him out.
Another day, another Watch_Dogs trailer. If you’ve got any remaining questions about Ubisoft’s new open-world title, the above 101 video should certainly answer them. Let’s be honest though – you’ve already preordered it. It looks amazing, after all.
Dear Mr Hastings [CEO of Netflix],
Unless you’ve been away from gaming circles over the past few days, you’ll be aware of the brewing controversy surrounding Nintendo’s upcoming game, Tomodachi Life. The issue stems from the fact that the game does not allow same-sex characters to be married. It was exacerbated by Nintendo saying that the reason for this was because they wanted to avoid “social commentary”. Admittedly, Nintendo have handled this situation badly, but all those who are arguing that Nintendo are being homophobic are, frankly, wrong. Here’s why.
