A new AI character is about to join the cast of Bioshock Infinite, according to a 2K artist whose CV mentions he’s been "providing animation and R&D for a new AI companion character”.

No mention yet as to who it might be, and all traces of the slip have been scrubbed away from the offending LinkedIn bio, but if the same coin-sniffing and item scroinging AI routine as Elizabeth’s holds true, the smart money’s on Jeremiah Fink.

Monaco, basically Ocean’s Eleven in indie video game form in case the name is unfamiliar, has already recouped the $100,000 investment which allowed it to exist in the first place. Investors Indie Fund, including the likes of Braid creator Jonathan Blow have a history of backing games that make their money back quickly after launch, having helped bring Antichamber, Dear Esther and more to the market. A Humble Store pre-order promotion helped Monaco make it even faster.

"For me the most significant thing about the early success with regards to Indie Fund is that it shows that there are many ways of approaching funding, from crowdfunding to investment models like Indie Fund, to personal loans – I know a number of devs that have taken loans from other devs – to the traditional publisher model,” Monaco dev Andy Schatz said.

Steam and the App Store as well as XBLA before them might have put indie games on the map, but it’s now the tiny studios and independent developers who are making platforms, not the other way around. Nintendo seems to have realized this by dropping the vast majority of its requirements for indies to get onto Wii U, but it’s Sony who is receiving most praise from indies for its forthright submission process and communication with developers.

"It feels like at this point Sony kind of gets the notion that they are not a necessity,” according to Vlambeer’s Rami Ismail. "They are not a requirement for an indie developer to be successful. If Sony doesn’t want to play ball, people can go to a number of other platforms and be successful on those. We can go to Steam, we can go to iOS, we can go to any of th ... Read more »

Sad news for employees of Electronic Arts. The company sent out an "organizational update” today notifying the public of another round of layoffs. They didn’t give any specifics, but it looks like Electronic Arts is having some tough times, and a lot of re-organization is going on. Hence the layoffs.

According to Kotaku, Electronic Arts has let go of as much as 10% of its workforce. The video game publisher didn’t comment on this, but 10% is probably about 1,000 employees. That means less people working on great games and of course tough times for those who are layed off.

We hope that the company can get it together and keep more people working.

I think that most of us love the Ratchet & Clank games. You probably thought they would be great movies. Ratchet & Clank developer Insomniac Games thinks so too, which is why they announced an animated film is currently in production.

The Ratchet & Clank movie is scheduled for a 2015 release and will star several of its most loved characters in a 3D film. The movie is being written by Insomniac’s TJ Fixman, who has been in charge of the writing for recent entries in the Ratchet & Clank series.

The film will look back at the duo’s beginnings and will use Insomniac’s knowledge of the series to create a "deeper, more meaningful story.” The voice actors who play Ratchet, Clank and Qwark have been confirmed.
