New Far Cry 4 Trailer Talks Elephants - They Crave Human Blood

New Far Cry 4 Trailer Talks Elephants - They Crave Human Blood

Not taking itself too seriously, this new trailer introduces us to one of the wild life that can be spotted in the new setting of Far Cry 4. The Himalayan countrysides are the home of the Asian elephant, dangerous creatures that don't play nice with humans. Like Far Cry 3, Far Cry 4 will have its own set of wild animals that will probably annoy you. Far Cry 4 releases for the PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 November 18th. Check out the trailer below...

Why I Didn't Get Destiny - It's Probably Not The Game You Expected

Why I Didn't Get Destiny - It's Probably Not The Game You Expected

So there's been real hype for Bungie next mega-blockbuster game, Destiny. I was released last Tuesday and you might be wondering why I have not said a peep about it. Truth is... I got cold feet. I was supposed to buy this... but at the last minute I opted for Diablo III on the PS4 instead. I don't regret that decision as Diablo III is a game I'm guaranteed to like. Destiny however, was more of an unknown quantity. My brief experience with it in the beta left me with lots of questions about how this would be fun.

Paradox Releases Best Trailer Ever - Magicka 2 Gameplay Trailer Sing-A-Long

Paradox Releases Best Trailer Ever - Magicka 2 Gameplay Trailer Sing-A-Long

They aren't claiming next-gen graphics, revolutionary gameplay or a new gameplay experience with Magicka 2. All they are saying is that it will have working netcode on release (yay!) and one hell of a quirky humour. Which is why they released a gameplay trailer which shows of the first footage of the game as a cheesy 80's karaoke video. There's even a webpage for a karaoke video making contest that's inspired by Geocities styled websites which you can see here. You just can't predict these wizards. Magicka 2 will come out for the PC and the PS4 in early 2015. Check out the trailer below...

Grand Theft Auto V For The PC Delayed To 27th January 2015 - PS4 & Xbox One Versions Out November 18th

It was supposed to be out this Fall on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. It just wasn't to be and PC gamers have to... yet again... wait a little longer for a Rockstar game to be out on the platform. The good news though is that Grand Theft Auto V will be out for the PS4 and Xbox One on November 18th this year. The enhanced next-gen version of GTA V features denser traffic, new weapons, vehicles, songs, a new foliage system (which means better looking trees) and a bunch of neat little new details. Check out the new trailer for next-gen Grand Theft Auto V below...

The Last of Us Changed My Perception About Console Game Difficulty

The Last of Us Changed My Perception About Console Game Difficulty

If you did follow my livestream of The Last of Us Remastered in July (you can follow our Twitch channel here), you would have noticed the tough time I had getting past certain sections of the game. This came as a complete surprise to me. Not because I think I'm a gaming god.. but I've always thought that a mainstream mass market game like The Last of Us would have a difficulty that is finely tuned to be playable for the vast majority. I was wrong....

The Crew Is Probably One of The Few Racing Games That Is Trying To Innovate

The Crew Is Probably One of The Few Racing Games That Is Trying To Innovate

Imagine a racing game that takes place in an open world that is the size of the entire United States. The Crew from Ubisoft is just that, with the track being the whole of United States. It's not a 1:1 ratio in size of course, but a condensed version of it. It's still freaking huge. You can witness the scale of driving mayhem in the latest trailer below. If they manage to realise the vision in the final release, The Crew will definitely stand out from the regular cookie-cutter racers out there. But it probably needs a better name. The Crew releases for the PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and the PC on November 11th.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 Might Be A Much Better Resident Evil Than Resident Evil 6

Capcom announced Resident Evil Revelations 2 a few weeks back and today it's got it's first trailer.

By the looks of this trailer, it's a more horrific game with more emphasis on exploration and puzzle solving with scare ammo. This is the Resident Evil I knew... check out the trailer below...

In Assassin's Creed Unity's Heist Co-op Mission, All Guards Face Away From Entrances

In Assassin's Creed Unity's Heist Co-op Mission, All Guards Face Away From Entrances

Ubisoft Creative Director, Alex Amancio takes us through a heist mission in Assassin's Creed Unity. A heist is a co-op mission that requires players to infiltrate and steal loot and escape undetected. The more stealthy the approach, the more prize money you get. The missions have randomness to them so the treasure might be in a different location, or the number of guards might be different the next time you play the same mission. Oddly enough... apparently all guards in Assassin's Creed games face away from entrances. Simply incompetent. Check out the gameplay walkthrough below...

Steam Will Soon Support South East Asian Currencies

Valve announced that Steam will soon be priced in South East Asian currency. That includes the Malaysian Ringgit, Singapore Dollar, Indonesian Rupiah, Thai Baht and the Philippines Peso. We don't have a timeline for when this will happen other than... soon. The news for the new currency support broke in January this year and it seems that our secrets agents planted in the Valve offices have sniffed out a mid-September date for these currencies to come to Steam.

Assassin's Creed Rogue Latest Gameplay Trailer Shows How Assassin Turns Assassin Hunter

Assassin's Creed Rogue Latest Gameplay Trailer Shows How Assassin Turns Assassin Hunter

Despite my reservations for Assassin's Creed games (how many of them do we have now?) that keep repeating the same formula, Assassin's Creed Rogue does in some small way turn things around. An Assassin turned Templar, hunting Assassin's is a bit more different than taking down those highly choreographed set piece assassinations we've seen in past Assassin's Creed games.

Ryse: Son of Rome Conquers The PC On October 10th - Supports 4k Resolution

When they first announced Crytek’s Ryse: Son of Rome was going to be an Xbox One exclusive, there were accusation that Crytek, were abandoning the PC. Then it came out to very mediocre reviews. It was definitely a pretty game, but gameplay mechanics were rather thin and it depended on too many quick time events. They’ve now announced that a PC version will be released on October 10th and it supports 4k resolution. So if you’re looking for a game that will play in ultra HD, you can get it on Steam for USD$39.99. Check out the PC trailer below...
