Crikey, talk about a ‘reveal’ trailer. Laura was unofficial unveiled as a brand new Street Fighter V character a few days ago, but today we can bring you her actual gameplay footage. One look at her in action and we’re certainly thinking she’ll be replacing Blanka on the day one roster. While her style is a bit faster than the green man-beast, her use of electric shock moves and a Blanka-esque roll move incorporated into her V-Trigger finisher makes us think Capcom have fallen for their own Brazilian bombshell over him. Not that he couldn’t appear as an unlockable character post-launch. Continue reading Street Fighter V Laura trailer and new beta dates
Zangief is now officially coming to Street Fighter V and even has a new trailer. That’s not much of a surprise, but the leaked images of a new character certainly are. While yet to be officially announced via a trailer, expect to see Laura in action very soon if these leaked images are anything to go by.
Coming from Famitsu (via Event Hubs) the new leaked screens show the new fighter giving Ryu a beat of a beating. If rumours are to be believed. Laura is a Brazilian fighter and harnesses electrical abilities similar to Blanka. Does this mean the green man beast has been replaced in Street Fighter V?
You can see some more Laura screens and the Zangief trailer below. Continue reading Zangief and Laura added to Street Fighter V roster

Still playing Grand Theft Auto V online? Well, if you’re playing on PS4, Xbox One or PC, prepare for a massive update to the Freemode Events via Rockstar’s latest content drop. Sadly, last-gen versions won’t be getting this new content. Actually they won’t be getting anything else again, which is makes that STILL high-price of the new-gen version all the more annoying.
There’s a full rundown courtesy of Rockstar’s newswire below. But there’s also a trailer if you just want to see some of it in action. Continue reading Massive GTA Online Freemode update now live
Last week we had the Strength Fallout 4 infomercial and this week it’s time to look at the world of Perception. This retro-styled video explains how Perception fits into your S.P.E.C.I.A.L. statistical makeup.
For example, the higher your perception skill, the better your VATS accuracy will work again all those ‘post-nuclear nuisances’. Stealing and other forms of sneakery will also benefit. Continue reading Perception stat explained in Fallout 4 trailer
SOMA’s September 22nd release date is edging towards us on PS4 and PC. From the looks of this new trailer, there are plenty of nasty creatures in the shadows making their way through the shadows too.
Seeing as SOMA is coming from Frictional Games, the studio behind Amnesia, we’re expecting a thoroughly nerve-shredding experience. SOMA is set under the sea in an apparently abandoned facility. Is it abandoned, or did everyone just get eaten by the things stalking those dark corridors? We’re going for the latter. If you enjoyed the terrifying, defenceless gameplay of Alien: Isolation, you’ll certainly want to check this out. Continue reading Monsters await in new SOMA trailer
Those classic retro infomercials are back folks. This looks like one of the tutorial videos you’ll be seeing in Fallout 4 come November. In the game, you’ll be upgrading each of your S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stats. S stands for strength and this handy video tells you why you’ll want to upgrade it if you’re going to survive in the wastelands.

Until now, we’d only seen a few very pretty screenshots for Cliff ‘Gears of War’ Bleszinski’s new FPS, but now we have a name and more importantly, a gameplay trailer. And it’s looking pretty damn impressive.
LawBreakers will be a free-to-play title launching on PC, presumably in 2016. There’s no official word on a console release, but after watching this video, we’re sure PS4 and Xbox One owners wouldn’t mind a taste. The video shows off the different styles of characters and how the Earth’s shattered gravity atmosphere means everyone’s moon jumping around. Laser tethers also allow players to wall run around the outsides of buildings too. Continue reading Cliff Bleszinski’s LawBreakers gameplay trailer has some moves

Well, we didn’t see this one coming. Slightly Mad Studios, most famous for developing the well-received Project Cars racing sim, are turning their hands to the skies. The Red Bull Air Race series has been growing in popularity in recent years as daredevil pilots compete for the best times as they weave between airgates and dive under bridges around famous cities the world over.
Slightly Mad Studios are partnering with Wing Racers Sports Games GmbH and will be releasing the game exclusively on PC in 2016. Take a look at the first trailer to see some very polished in-game engine graphics. Continue reading Project Cars devs making Red Bull Air Race game
9am is an early time to watch EA talk about sports, mobile guff and have awkward special guests on stage. But in between you might just see some red hot footage of the games you really want to see. We’re talking Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst, Star Wars: Battlefront, Mass Effect Andromeda, Need for Speed, and more importantly, Unravel. Continue reading Here’s how to watch EA’s Gamescom 2015 Presentation
New trailer released
Could this be the episode that sees the promising series finally stop treading water? After Episode 3’s ending, we’d certainly expect so. The new trailer looks like the search for Rachel Amber and the foreseen storm are going to feature heavily in the next part of Max’s adventure.
In other news, the series has already reached one million sales. Here’s to hoping Dontnod won’t make us wait another six weeks for the final episode.
You really should dive into Dontnod’s new series, as it’s shaping up nicely so far. Be sure to check out my spoiler-free reviews of Episode 1, Episode 2 and Episode 3. Continue reading Life is Strange Episode 4 – Darkroom coming next week
Bombshell is the game that emerged from the legal minefield between 3D Realms/Interceptor and Duke Nukem’ IP holders (and ruiners), Gearbox. Originally down as Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction, this top-down action RPG shooter has had a lead character swap and has been renamed Bombshell.
The game will release later this year on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Hopefully much later this year, as it’s looking decidedly average at the moment. Think Diablo III meets Smash TV, but with none of the good bits. The proof is in the playing though and if you find yourself at QuakeCon next month you’ll be able to try it for out. You never know, it could turn out to be fun. Continue reading Bombshell gets new gameplay trailer. Looks terrible

It’s been a long time coming, but we finally caught a glimpse of full-on gameplay for the eagerly-awaited Hellblade. Until now, we’d only seen gameplay through basic design animation tests during Ninja Theory’s dev diaries.
The story for Hellblade has taken a new turn. Senua’s trip into hell is actually a manifestation of her mental illness after the trauma of a Viking invasion. Sounds a bit Silent Hill to us. Psychosis is now a central theme of the game and the studio has been working with Psychiatrist and Professor of Health and Neuroscience at Cambridge University, Paul Fletcher, to develop these themes. Fletcher said: “True understanding of mental health is not simply about books, lectures or verbal descriptions but from deeper engagement on all levels. Working with Ninja Theory has shown me the potential that gaming has for sharing in a character’s experiences and engendering empathy in ways that go well beyond those offered by simple academic descriptions. Maybe this approach will contribute powerful new ways of challenging stigma.” Continue reading Hellblade E3 trailer finally shows some gameplay
