It isn't difficult to gleam the tone that Overkill is going for with its interpretation of The Walking Dead's universe: dark, gritty, and incredibly unforgiving, just as the comics, TV show, and other video game interpretations transmit. The trailer also gives a shout-out to a new item coming free to Payday 2 based on the upcoming game.

"Commander Shepard": A Dramatic Reading By Commander Shepard Herself

about X hours ago from

Youtube channel Sneaky Zebra recently uploaded this very special dramatic reading of Miracle of Sound’s “Commander Shepard” lyrics as read by Jennifer Hale, voice actress for Commander Shepard. The result may be smothered in idiom, but it is still considerably more simulating than scanning for Iridium.

The tale so expertly told details Commander Shepard’s lasting legacy as a legend to the soldiers of Earth. If you close your eyes, you can almost see Shepard explaining herself to Garrus after easily beating him in a sniping competition again (Paragon players know she missed on purpose).

The Sims 4's Gallery Will Foster A Creative Community, And May Not Be Monetized

The Sims 4's Gallery Will Foster A Creative Community, And May Not Be Monetized

This morning at EA's Gamescom press briefing, we got our first look at The Sims 4's new gallery in action. The feature is an evolution of the Exchange that integrates Sim and room sharing into the experience.

The Gallery also creates an easier way for creative fans to focus on the part of the experience they enjoy the most. The Exchange, which was a separate website for sharing and downloading creations wasn't the easiest of tools to use.

"It was a totally separate experience. It took you completely out of the game," says executive producer Rachel Franklin. "Despite that, which was frankly was quite cumbersion, we had a staggering number of downloads. We're over 500 million."

With a newly integrated creation system, it seems obvious that Maxis and EA would monetize the Gallery and, perhaps, profit share with users. Franklin isn't committing to that, suggesting that she and her team want to hear from the community.

He said he wanted to be an industry first to do a reveal like this, and he intentionally made the last puzzle of P.T. extremely difficult. "I expected it to take a week to solve," Kojima said. "I was surprised it took less than one day."

Kojima mused that he underestimated his fans, but he calls his interactive teaser reveal, "a success." Kojima wanted people all over the world to unite through the internet and solve the puzzle with his big reward: the Silent Hills announcement.

Strange Facts From Hideo Kojima's Gamescom Q&A

Following the Gamescom Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain demo, Kojima answered fan questions offering some insight to his creative process.

When asked what game he would be interested in remaking from the library of his own games, he chose Metal Gear Solid. Before answering, however, Kojima was quick to say he doesn't like remaking games or looking to the past, but if he could just serve as a producer and have his team remake a game, he would go with Metal Gear Solid. If he were ever to remake it, he said he would approach it similarly to the recent Planet of the Apes films, which retain the good parts of the originals, but change other aspects drastically.

Kojima also said if he could be any character from any movie, he would want to be Mad Max, specifically Mad Max from Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior. He also joked that he wished he could make a Mad Max game, and that someone should let him.
