Frank West Gets An Exosuit In The Ludicrously Fun Dead Rising 4

about X hours ago from

Yesterday, Microsoft announced that the next installment of the Dead Rising saga was coming to Xbox One. Even though the news leaked like a speared zombie, I was excited to learn more about Dead Rising 4. Today I got to play a quick demo, where I snapped a few pictures, ripped off a few dozen heads, and pummeled some zombies with Christmas-present boxing gloves.

Like the trailer’s soundtrack implied, the game is set in Willamette, Colorado, right around Christmas time. As such, Frank can incorporate a variety of holiday-themed weapons into his zombie slaying. One of the big changes to the game is that Frank can hold weapons into different quick-access inventory slots, letting him quickly swap from a ranged to a melee weapon. For instance, I cleared the nighttime streets with explosive arrows, and could instantly pull out my electrified battle axe to take care of any stragglers.

A couple of new screenshots for Spider-Man for PS4 show off the crime-fighting protagonist in HD as he traverses around New York. The PS4 exclusive was announced during the Sony E3 press conference, revealing Insomniac Games as the developer.

Pre-E3 some rumors swirled that Sucker Punch was the one working on the title, and clearly those turned out to be false. No release date was provided for the game, and Spider-Man PS4 is referred to as a working title by Insomniac's web page for the game. It has also been confirmed by Insomniac president Ted Price that the game will have no connection to the 2017 future release of the Spider-Man: Homecoming Marvel film.    

You can also check out the trailer below, which shows off some masked enemies, web-slinging combat, and the New York City environment.

The latest from Quantic Dream and David Cage questions the decision-making capabilities of androids. No release date has been given for this PlayStation 4 exclusive.

A new trailer was shown at Sony's press conference yesterday that revolved around a hostage situation on a roof. Players control Connor, an android with no rights, who is working with the police. As seen in the footage, he can talk down the hostile android or use violence to rescue the little girl held prisoner. Branching decisions allow for a number of different ways for the situation to play out, as is typical for Quantic Dream gameplay.

The game is a PlayStation 4 exclusive, and there will be more than one playable character. To learn more about the game's unique setting, check out our video interview with David Cage.

After resurfacing last year, The Last Guardian appeared again at Sony's E3 press conference with a heart-warming trailer and the news of an official release date. Many believed the spiritual successor to Ico and Shadow of the Colossus would never arrive, but the PS4 exclusive lands in October.

The gameplay demo at last year's show hinted at a lot of exploration and platforming, with the help of your furry and feathery friend. Much of the game's story and setting remains a mystery,  but all will be revealed on October 25.

South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone graced the E3 stage once again to show off their squeal to South Park: The Stick of Truth. During the Ubisoft conference we got a good look at both cut-scenes and gameplay for South Park: The Fractured But Whole.

The South Park boys will be leaving the world of wizards and warlocks in the previous title to tackle crime as superheros. Their alias Coon and Friends was developed within the TV show, and now they will transfer to the video game world as well. You will return as "the new kid", allowing you to customize your avatar and choose the class of superhero you wish to be.

Wonderfully Paving The Way For Kingdom Hearts III

about X hours ago from

Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue is setting the stage for Kingdom Hearts III. When it was announced last September, I expected that Square Enix would provide fans one last remaster, allowing them to get caught up with the series before its new, long-awaited entry. What I didn’t expect, however, was that it would include a new episode that would give us a taste of some of Kingdom Hearts III’s gameplay.

Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage is what I’m most looking forward to out of the collection. Sure, it’s nice to have it also include Dream Drop Distance (especially since it only released previously on 3DS) and Kingdom Hearts χ [chi] Back Cover (a movie shedding light on the Foretellers), but A Fragmentary Passage is completely new content and stars Aqua (one of my favorite characters). I was lucky enough to get hands-on with a beginning portion of this episode, and I enjoyed what I played.

For those not in the know, A Fragmentary Passage is set to answer questions left lingering about keyblade-wielder Aqua and be a good lead in to Kingdom Hearts III. The duration of the episode should only be a few hours, but it was created using similar development tools to Kingdom Hearts III. Consider it a brief preview to Kingdom Hearts III’s gameplay.

The latest Ghost Recon: Wildlands demo showed off the game's extensive co-op gameplay, as well as a variety of extraction tactics. A release date of March 17, 2017 was confirmed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

During Ubisoft's E3 press conference, an extensive demo showed off how four players can team up to complete missions in the game. The target in the mission shown was housed in an abandoned city and players needed use to use a number of vehicles, including motorcycles and helicopter to complete the objective. Stealth was an option, though by the end, the team was engaged in a full-on firefight.

This mission showed off the many ways a mission can be tackled in Ghost Recon: Wildlands. Below you can see the newest screenshots from the game, featuring various Bolivian environments.

One of the biggest surprises of Sony’s 2016 E3 press conference was the announcement of Kojima Productions’ new project, an enigmatic game called Death Stranding. A trailer was shown for the game, and now we have the chance to take an up close look at screens chosen and released by Sony.

Unfortunately, the official screens don’t offer any additional understanding of just what we can expect out of the project, but the high-quality images do invite speculation: Just what is going on with Reedus’ character on this cold and lonely beach, filled with oily liquid, suffocating death imagery, and looming godlike forms in the sky?
