Well, Bungie have finally dropped some details about their upcoming game, Destiny. We can finally confirm that the game will be an FPS, but it will also be something of an MMO. This mini documentary shows a few barely animated illustrations before some tasty looking glimpses of the game in motion. That’s motion, not action mind. Also expect to see various Bungie members pat themselves on the back at every chance. Enjoy the video after the jump and let us know what you think. Continue reading Bungie Release Destiny Trailer
Irrational have released another documentary-style video detailing the background information about the floating city of Columbia, the setting of the upcoming Bioshock Infinite. We get an outsider’s perspective on sightings of the Songbird and even a few words on ‘The Lamb of Columbia’, which will surely turn out to be Elizabeth. Part 1 can be seen here, otherwise take a look at the new one after the break. Continue reading Bioshock Infinite’s Columbia: A Modern Day Icarus Part 2 Documentary Warns of the Songbird
The latest trailer released for Lego City Undercover makes us want it even more. And with the Wii U losing so many exclusives recently, Nintendo will be desperate to keep hold of this one as the success of past Lego titles, could make this a bonafide system seller.
The video shows on foot and vehicular gameplay along with some very amusing story scenes. Players of Lego Batman 2 will be able to attest that Traveller’s Tales are very capable of writing funny scripts and this looks set to be even better. Bring on March 28th. Continue reading Lego City Undercover Trailer – The Wii U Saviour?
Fighting games aren’t known for making an effort with their stories, but if this new story trailer for Injustice: Gods Among Us is anything to go by, that could be set to change. With such a rich heritage of DC Comics to fall back on, it makes sense that the developers should aim to give a little purpose to the action.
The cutscene footage is looking impressive and it’s pleasing to hear some familiar voices behind the masks. Many of the outfits seem to be more armoured than the classic looks we’re used to, but when you look at the fighting itself, we can hardly blame them for wanting a bit of extra protection.
We’re really looking forwards to the game as it looks set to shake up the genre somewhat with the most impressive interactive environments ever seen in a fighting game, which should elevate it above the impression of a Mortal Kombat game with DC characters. Wait, they already did that one. Check out my Gamescom Preview for more information ahead of the April 19th release date. Details for the game’s Collector’s Edition can be found here. Continue reading Injustice: Gods Among Us Story Trailer
Milestone are taking a break from traditional rallying with their next game, WRC: Powerslide. This new trailer shows off the game’s multiplayer where we can see cars jostling for position with physical simultaneous racing instead of the usual ghost cars that the last three WRC games used.
This isn’t the first racing series to ditch its sim-like roots. Against the odds, Dirt: Showdown proved to be a lot of fun, but Codemasters then slipped up with F1 Race Stars. As long as Milestone or Codemasters get back to making a proper rallying game next, I think this one could turn out to be a lot of fun.
Powerups will help you succeed, such as a shield that spins out your rivals or a sudden personalised hailstorm that grinds them to a halt – which already looks like Powerslide’s Blue Shell. Some of the tracks look familiar, especially that vicious ninety degree right turn past the buildings, but hopefully the roads will be widened a little to avoid flipping over a cliff or nailing a tree teeth-first. Continue reading WRC: Powerslide Trailer Shows Off Multiplayer
We mentioned Namco Bandai putting up a teaser site earlier this week with an image of a motorbike and an obscure quote and we can now reveal the game behind all the secrecy is Kamen Rider: Battride War.
Based on yet another Japanese anime series, the game is wait for it…a Dynasty Warriors clone but with Power Ranger-style cosplayers and motorbikes, or something along those lines. All we know is it’ll be on PS3 and involve beating up armies single-handed. There’s a trailer for you after the break, with a little bit of gameplay towards the end. Everything’s in Japanese and there’s no confirmation of a European release as of yet, but keep your fingers crossed, you never know it might not be as terrible, boring and derivative as it looks.
Tomorrow Halo fans. That’s when Episode 6 of Halo 4’s Spartan Ops DLC is coming. We’ve been eagerly awaiting the return of the series after its Christmas hiatus and we have a brand new trailer showing we have plenty to look forwards to.
Despite fans generally enjoying the first five Episodes, there’s a general feeling that the maps have been a bit small. We’re hearing this has been improved and the action ties into the story better too. This makes sense seeing as the developers have been able to dedicate more time to them compared to the last lot, which were developed alongside the main game. Importantly, don’t forget it’s FREE! Clearly, 343 have some dirt on a few high ranking Microsoft execs. Continue reading Halo 4 Spartan Ops Episodes 6-10 Trailer
Ha ha! Kratos has feelings, what a lady! Joking aside, see a softer side to Kratos in this story teaser trailer for the upcoming God of War: Ascension. Then watch him stab up a few massive beasties including the Elephant-man (no, not that one) and a previously unseen Kraken-esque sea-beast.
March can’t come soon enough for Kratos’ next adventure as we’ve all but forgotten our initial apathy towards the game upon hearing it was another prequel. For any PlayStation Plus subscribers out there don’t forget you can get free access to the game’s online multiplayer beta right now.
The release date still hasn’t been nailed down, but we’re expecting the game around March. In the mean time, check out this new trailer which shows off the various parts that make up a mission for Sly and his fellow thieves.
Sly will be getting new skills depending which time period he’s visiting, here we see him don a shogun-samurai suit of armour. Fans of the series will know what to expect as they go through Bentley’s extravagant list of tasks before taking on the final heist mission for each area. Murray usually does the driving and muscle work, but his latest skill seems to involve enticing guards away with his feminine ways. Wait.. what?
Don’t forget, buying the PS3 game gives you free access to the Vita version too, which supports cross-saves. Check out the trailer after the jump. Continue reading Sly 4 Pulling the Heist Trailer
Not long to go now until the February 12th release of Aliens: Colonial Marines. Sega and Gearbox’s game is following up directly after the events of the Aliens movie, meaning we’ll be revisiting the Sulaco and the apparently still quite infested planet below.
Check out the brand new story trailer after the jump to hear more, including some details from the briefing of the new grunts.
The video premier from the VGAs showing the debut trailer for the ‘new game’, The Phantom Pain, essentially outs the Metal Gear Solid V. The internet took no time in dissecting the trailer that’s packed with references to the Metal Gear series.
The protagonist crawling along the floor is clearly sporting an eye patch and bears a similar scar to the poster image for Snake in the upcoming Ground Zeroes game. But it’s the end of the trailer with various angled lines above the logo that can clearly be pencilled in to reveal a logo for Metal Gear Solid V.
The company apparently developing this new game, Moby Dick Studios, seems to be made up and their CEO is one Joakim Mogrim, a name that can be jumbled up to produce Kojima (MGS creator and director) and it also contains the name Ogre, a long-standing codename for Kojima’s next project.
The more we watch the trailer it looks increasingly likely we’re watching some sort of playable dream sequence. The giant flaming whale probably nudged us that way. Volgin from MGS3 shows up too.
What is more exciting though is the atmosphere built up during the trailer that is unlike any other Metal Gear game. There’s more of a survival horror vibe, which is an unlikely direction for the series, but nonetheless, we wouldn’t mind playing through something like this for part of the game.
Take a look at the trailer and gear yourself up (sorry, had to) for what could be something very special.
Thanks to the posters at NeoGaf for pointing out some of the MGS references.
Now that the possessive minions have stopped deleting videos from Youtube we can bring you the remaining trailers from last week’s Spike VGAs. First up is the long awaited new trailer for South Park: The Stick of Truth.
The eagerly awaited THQ and Obsidian RPG is looking like a decent tie-in for a change. The crappy 2D animation has been left intact, rather than force the game into an unnecessary 3D model. The traditional turn-based battles draw from the frequently obscene history of the series to provide spells and summons that feature lots of familiar characters doing some nasty, nasty things. We’re looking at you Mister Slave.
Cartman is the star of the show once again and provides a bucket of laughs during this all too brief two minute look at the game. The game is currently pencilled in for a March release next year, we’re keeping our fingers crossed it won’t see any further delays.
Masochists, assemble! Dark Souls II has been announced at this year’s Spike VGAs. The previous game and Demon’s Souls are legendary for their unforgiving difficulty and we’re sure Dark Souls II will be just as much a big huge massive bastard to play.
This first trailer doesn’t show any gameplay, but the mix of CGI and live action does paint a foreboding picture for the latest adventure. So, abandon all hope, stock up on despair and buy a very large swear jar.
Another VGA trailer for you of the mightily impressive-looking Tomb Raider from Crystal Dynamics. Half of the material is stuff we’ve already seen to be honest, but there are enough new elements to make it worth a watch.
It begins with Lara climbing a tall radio antenna on a snowy mountain, which seems to be a new location. There’s a lot of bow action too, it’s getting hard to see how far we’re expected to go along with the notion that we’re getting a new Lara who is going to be a more vulnerable character when she’s leaving such a huge body count behind her. Everyone has their breaking point I suppose.
Enjoy the trailer and look out for the quick glimpse of a bloody massive samurai. Don’t think an arrow to the kidneys is going to be enough for that guy.
As per tradition, the Spike Video Game Awards came and went leaving us with a new collection of world premier trailers. Hopefully we won’t see one for Bioshock: Infinite the same time next year, as we’re pretty hopeful the game will be out by then. Maybe. Fingers crossed.
The latest footage shows Booker DeWitt meeting Elizabeth for the first time and you can see her with longer hair and different clothes than previously, possibly indicating a longer passage of time for the game’s events.
After that, there’s a large amount of gameplay footage of an extensive gunfight with some new enemy types to take on along with an appearance from a Handyman robot. Interestingly, the Handyman can be seen smashing an enemy airship before coming to fight you, which shows off the battle between Columbia’s two factions. It’s a shame that it appears that they both want you dead. Good thing you’re tooled up with tonics (i.e. plasmids) that send swarms of birds at your enemies and Elizabeth is providing backup by bringing you ammo. Apparently, you can use the Skyhook at a messy melee finisher too.
May 7th. That’s the date to officially drop everything for Naughty Dog’s next adventure. The date will technically be for the US release, but we’d expect the game to be out the following Friday in the UK, possibly beforehand as we’ve seen multiple mid-week releases over the last few months for bigger titles like Black Ops II and Resident Evil 6.
We have the new trailer from this year’s Spike VGAs for you after the break. There’s a mix of action and dialogue to digest with the introduction of a few supporting characters too. They seem to be friendlies compared to the usual bandits keen to rob and murder you.
Joel seems to be arguing with everyone and there seems to be tension building even with Ellie. You’ll also see glimpses of in-game footage of Joel taking on infected humans for the first time. We still want to see more, but it seems that a close-range shotgun blast to the face is a good place to start when taking them out.
Of course there’s a Rabbids game to go with the Wii U launch. The Rayman spin-offs were a huge success for Ubisoft on the original Wii and we imagine they’ll do well on Nintendo’s new console too with their demented selection of minigames. As much as we’d like to dismiss this as a kid’s game, it does look like a fun way to get to know your new console.
From what we can see in the trailer, you’ll be able to use the game pad (the one with the screen) and an original Wii motion controller to play these games and they’ll support up to four players. Parents are advised to hit the mute button though as the gibberish chatter from the Rabbids will drive you insane in minutes. Continue reading Rabbids Land Trailer Brings the Mental to the Wii U
We always knew that the team behind the Lego Lord of the Rings game would be able to find plenty of fun to poke at the movies and this glimpse into the game’s cutscenes doesn’t disappoint. Enjoy snippets from the three films as they’re given the Lego charm makeover. Is it just us or are the Lego Orcs a bit on the sinister side for Lego? Gollum on the other hand, is just adorable.
Sony has released a new Halloween trailer for their upcoming PS Move horror title, Until Dawn. The game was revealed at Gamescom in the summer and we’ve not seen much from it since, but hopes are high as it looks to be packing in the atmosphere and frankly, we’re desperate for a decent Move title that isn’t a minigame/sports title.
For more information about the game check out Matt’s preview. Check out the trailer after the jump and see if you can spot which film series has inspired this scene. It’s not hard.
Christopher ‘McLovin’ Mintz-Plasse is starring in a new mini-series to promote Far Cry 3, the Far Cry Experience. This live action miniseries injects as dose of humour to the series as the Superbad / Kick Ass actor is put on a tropical island to promote the game before suddenly, shit gets real, Tropic Thunder-style.
Funny throughout, we can’t wait to see if Chris and his cameraman can survive the inevitable confrontation with Vaas, who has recently become a fan of chaining tourists to rocks and firing rockets at them. The little scamp.
