Forums have been spammed with players complaining about serious freezing whilst playing in multiplayer matches, well Activision have released a patch to tackle  the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 system lock-ups some were experiencing on PlayStation 3.

Activision have stated that they are fully aware that people have been experiencing freezes even after they installed the patch and that they “are doing everything we can to get to the bottom of it as quickly as possible”.

To install the patch simply boot up Black Ops 2 and sign in to play online. It’ll sort itself out automatically. Simples!

Players on the Ps3 will be happy to hear that you can now download a special DLC based on the levels from the new Skyfall Bond film. Not much really to say about it other than the Xbox and PC players will have to wait until November 20th until they can experience the Skyfall levels.

Oh and did I mention its FREE!!

Heres the trailer to feed your hungry eyes!

Makes the term “get your finger out” even better to use!

We remember when the kinect was releases and the fact that you could shout orders at your squad mates in mass effect was such a cool feature. But now it seems that the WiiU will be adding more awesome features to their edition of Mass Effect.

The trailer below shows that you can now send allies to a certain part of the map to give covering fire straight from the controllers touch pad, it also shows us that the graphics still seem to be as epic as ever, this game alone would be a perfectly valid reason for buying a WiiU and I think that’s going to be our excuse too!

The official trailer for new zombie flick World War Z was uploaded to Youtube 20 hours ago and has already passed the one million views mark, and honestly that no surprise.

After watching the trailer we here at Akroview are highly anticipating the release of this zombifest! But what we would really like to see is how Brad Pitt handles himself as the main antagonist, maybe if he uses some of the tricks he learnt killing Nazi’s in Inglorious Basterds then we’re in for a hell of a ride.

Wait a minute…first he kills Nazis, now he’s killing zombies! Could the next Brad Pitt film be…dare we say it…NAZI ZOMBIES! We’re looking at you Treyarch!

Anyway check out the trailer below and see what you make of it, we think its awesome!



Far Cry 3 has been highly anticipated over the summer but sadly it was pushed back by the publisher some three months! But now they seem to be set for a November 30th release!



We here at Akroview have been messing about with the new remote app that Microsoft revealed recently, it basically turns your android phone into a controller that can be used to navigate through the many features of the Xbox 360.

But now it is also available on Apple products such as the iPhone and iPad, simply search Smartglass on iTunes and you’re on your way to browsing the internet on your tv via your IOS device.

Smartglass will also be able to interact with games such as Dance Central 3 and Halo 4.

After playing Assassins Creed 3 for a while I noticed a lot of little glitches and bugs, none that seem to hazardous to the player. It seems as though it’s little sister, Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation is suffering from the same faith, but with slightly hazardous results!

The bug seems to affect the games save and apparently is unable to load any of the players data! Reports have come out though that the big will be fixed in the latest patch.

Some of the vita players suggest that it is due to a specific costume that messes with the coding and thus leaves the player either unable to load the game save or stuck in the limbo known as the animus.

The folks over at have reported that:

“One Ubisoft UK forum manager told affected players: “I have passed on the info about outfits – it’s vital people contact ubisoft support as well though – they need to be made aware of what happens to recreate the bug and the amount of players it’s affecting – that way they can push the issue up the chain.””
