The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker Reborn E3 Trailer

Posted on June 11, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

Link’s debut on Nintendo’s latest home console is of course an HD port of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. The game was announced last summer, and Nintendo gave us a four minute trailer during their E3 Direct live-stream earlier this morning.

Unlike other Wiiu games, which were straight ports of older titles, this version of The Wind Waker has been substantially upgraded. New textures, bloom lighting and other graphical touches that weren’t on the GameCube really breathe new  life into this nearly 10 year old game.

Wind Waker Reborn will run in native 1080P, features Nintendo Gamepad integration (replacing the previously GBA -required Tingle Tuner) and will be available in North America in October. Check out the latest trailer after the jump.Read More


The First Look At Super Smash Bros for Wii U / 3DS

Posted on June 11, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

We’ve waited two years to get our first glimpse at Super Smash Bros for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Wait no longer because during their E3 Direct live-stream Nintendo showed off not one but two trailers featuring gameplay from both versions.

We don’t know about any content difference between the two games but the 3DS version has a very distinct cell shaded style, while the Wii U version looks like Super Smash Bros Brawl on current-generation HD steroids. In terms of gameplay, it’s pretty similar to previous games in the franchise – at least from the four or so minutes they broadcast. No new items or game changing mechanics, like Brawl’s  final smashes, were shown. We also don’t know how the two versions will connect together, either.

Oh, you want to know about new characters? Joining the fisticuffs are an avatar from the Animal Crossing series and a certain beloved CapCom character who has seen some better days. No, we won’t spoil it – just watch the trailers below.Read More


No You’re Not Dreaming, Square Enix Announces Kingdom Hearts III

Posted on June 10, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

Square Enix surprised everyone with a “wait one more moment”, announcing a sequel that everyone has been waiting 8 years for. No, I’m not talking about a remake of Final Fantasy VII, based off of the 2006 tech demo, but the return of Sora and Mickey Mouse in Kingdom Hearts 3.

Details are scant, we don’t know much about the game except that it will debut on the PlayStation 4 at some point in the future. Check out the first trailer after the jump, oh and make sure you bring a change of pants.

Capcom’s Dead Rising 3 Infects The Xbox One

Posted on June 10, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

The infected return in Capcom’s Dead Rising 3, announced this afternoon as a launch window exclusive for the Xbox One. I find this a bit surprising considering the fact that Dead Rising 2 and its spin-off Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, were multiplatfom titles released on the PS3 and PC. Then again, the original Dead Rising was an Xbox 360 exclusive during the summer of 2006.

Dead Rising 3 stars Nick Ramos, a survivor of the break out in the city of  Los Perdidos. Other games in the franchise played with the concept of an open world, featuring many different attractions and areas to explore but Dead Rising 3 raises the ante a bit by offering us an entire city to explore, with no load times!Read More


Ryse Son Of Rome Shows Interesting Army Control / Gameplay

Posted on June 10, 2013 by Les Major

The main thing that stood out to me during the beautiful showing of Ryse was the control you have over your army. Seemingly by pressing LB you can give commands to them in combat to call in an archer strike or such during specific times.

However, one of the interesting moments focused on the players army advancing with them. As if you were controlling an entire line of troops. As they approached the castle they were attacking, a cry would go out warning of arrows. The player could then respond by making the troops hide behind a wall of shields as a full group defensive move. At least thats the way it felt. For a full look yourself, check out the gameplay video after the break.Read More


Watch_Dogs CGI Trailer Leaks Before Ubisoft Conference

Posted on June 9, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

Get an advanced look at Ubisoft’s Watch_Dogs before their official E3 conference tomorrow at 3PM, thanks to the leak of the game’s E3 trailer. Sadly the whole thing is CGI, and doesn’t contain an ounce of gameplay, but perhaps an on stage demo will after this trailer is screened.

The trailer deals with protagonist Aiden Pearce hunting down an alleged Human Trafficker whom we see in the trailer is using the excuse of being “stuck in the office”, as his excuse to manage an elaborate human trafficking facility. I don’t want to spoil anymore about the trailer, but needless to say that Pearce’s vigilante justice on the human traffickers is pretty badass.

Watch_Dogs is due out on Xbox 360, PS3, Ps4, Xbox One and PC on November 19th.Read More

Hitman: Absolution Video: Dynamic Audio

Posted on October 29, 2012 by Jesse Lord

Just a quick news post to highlight a video sent to my inbox this morning by our contacts at Square Enix.  Called “Dynamic Audio,” this clip emphasizes the work that goes into creating the aural mood in a game like Hitman: Absolution.  I personally find that music in video games is one of the biggest influences on me and my enjoyment of the game.  Couple a touching scene with the right music and you’ve got something that truly pulls on my heart-strings and could even see a tear roll down my cheek.  Get a nice high-beats-per-minute track down in an action sequence and my grip on the controller tightens, my pupils dilate and my pulse quickens.  But enough from me – check out the video below!

PS Vita and RPG fans, rejoice!  Your JRPG specialists at Atlus have you covered for an RPG experience set in the Persona universe touting over 100 hours of gameplay!  That’s an impressive feat.  I am trying to think of the last time that I spent 100+ hours on a game (save for messing around in the GTA games after I’d completed the storyline missions).  In any event, they sent us an awesome trailer for Persona 4 Golden and I can’t wait to share it with you.  So here goes!

Fall of CyberTron DinoBots Trailer

Posted on May 24, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

High Moon Studio’s next Transformers game, Fall of Cybertron, brings the Dinobots into the fray. In this latest developer diary describe the origin of Dinobots is explained along with how they fit into the Transformers canon. Did you know that the Dinobots came about because some of the early transformers scanned prehistoric earth for new destructive forms?

According to the Dev Diary there have been many different origin stories for the Dinobots and this just happens to be the one that they decided upon. I think it would be pretty badass to rip around CyberTron tearing through the scenery asa giant robot would be pretty bad ass.

Fall of Cybertron will be released on PS3, Xbox and PC on August 28th 2012. Check out the brand new trailer after the jump!

God of War Ascension Teaser Trailer Leaked

Posted on April 19, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Kratos has spent five games defeating the Greek gods and now he’s back for even more blood fueled vengeance in the sixth title in the series, God of War: Ascension. Confirmed by Sony last night, and leaked online by retailers earlier in the day, Ascension will see Kratos return to the PlayStation 3 after his 2010 outing on the Playstation Portable.

Confirmation of the game’s existence isn’t the only blood soaked treat we’ve got to enjoy. A teaser trailer for the game leaked online last night as well. Ascension serves a prequel to the previous three console games. Will Ascension possibly showing a much calmer Kratos? I highly doubt that! Kratos will probably solve his disputes with grotesque violence rather than words.

Check out the trailer after the jump.Read More


Bethesda Announces The Elder Scrolls: Assassin’s Creed

Posted on April 17, 2012 by Matthew Regier

Okay, not really but that is what a lot of people are going to think when they watch the announcement trailer for Arkane Studio’s Dishonored, a first person sci-fi action game.

What we know about the story is that your main protagonist, Quartho,  an assassin framed for the murder of some Empress. And has he ever got a desire for a whole truck load of vengeance. The setting appears to be of the dystopian calibur showing imagery one would expect to see in a Half Life game, or in War of the Worlds. Showing a soldier on mechanical stilts shooting a flaming arrow into then street.
