A couple of weeks ago we brought you the first trailer for Earth Defense Force 4. While the trailer is in Japanese, that doesn’t take away from what EDF is all about: gun-blazing, insect squashing, building destroying mayhem!

Have any of you played any of the other EDF games? I know I’ve played quite a few of them and find them extremely enjoyable – especially in the company of friends playing co-op. Earth Defense Force 4 is set to invade your consoles sometime in 2013.

Most of us were a bit worried when multiplayer was announced for Hitman: Absolution. Let’s face it, some games are meant to remain single player. But that decision for Hitman: Absolution is not mine to make for you…you can make your own judgements by watching this 18 minute gameplay trailer!

Hitman: Absolution is due out November 20th. Do you think multiplayer was a good move for this game?

Sure, I laughed at the idea of a farming simulator too when I first heard of this. Who wouldn’t? But the fact is: without farmers…where would we get our vegetables and fruits? Farming has been around pretty much since the dawn of man. So heck, why shouldn’t it get a video game?

Here is the official trailer:

No exact date has been announced forFarming Simulator 2013, but it’s (obviously) expected to release in 2013.

Atlus has released several new screenshots for the upcoming PS Vita port, Persona 4: Golden. These new screenshots focus on the RPG elements of the game:  Showing the Rank Up screen and several pieces of dialogue.

For the uninitiated the Persona is best described as a hybrid RPG and dating simulator. Fusing real time combat and a heavy emphasis on forming and maintained relationships Persona 4: Golden could easily be consider two different games in one. As the main character you are responsible with navigating both the TV World, where battling monstrous creatures is the norm, and the real world where you are nothing more than an average highschooler.

Check out the screens below in our gallery. Persona 4: Golden will be released on the PS Vita on November 20th 2012 for $39.99 in North America.

Starbreeze Studios is by far one of my most favorite developers. From The Chronicles Of Riddick games to The Darkness…this group really puts out solid titles. So when the mention of a new game from them pops up it definately catches my attention.

From this trailer, Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons reminds me of Fable 3 visually. The story is based around the two brothers searching for the ‘Water Of Life’ to save their dying father. No mention of co-op (looks like the potential is there), but both brothers must rely upon each other during their journey.

Torchlight II, the underdog (in comparison to Borderlands 2) loot amassing RPG from Runic Games, is going to need a few months before it can play on the Mac, according to Runic Games CEO Matt Schaefer. During an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session on Reddit, Schaefer replied to a few questions. One, was about what this article is about, and another was about the possibility of seeing Torchlight II in a Humble Indie Bundle in the future.

Torchlight II is currently out on the PC, however, and it can be purchased through many different digital distribution sources, such as Steam and GameFly. Check out its official site here. See the full Reddit AMA here.
