Ubisoft Makes Us Smell Farts While Playing South Park

Farts are not something you normally want to smell. Somehow, Ubisoft is attempting to change that. At this year's Gamescom, the developer strapped a mask to my head so that I could smell these foul odors while I played the hilarious South Park: The Fractured But Whole.

About a week ago, Ubisoft unveiled the Nosulus Rift, a spoof mask that mocks the Oculus Rift. While it is more of a gag item that the developer is bringing to events rather than a consumer product, it nonetheless left an impression. With it, fans at Gamescom have been sniffing an artificially pungent smell while they play a game that is no stranger to fart jokes. While not actually practical in any way, the mask is hilarious just as a gag, even if I had to pull it off midway through because of the lingering smell of old farts.

This sequel to Stick of Truth sees Cartman and friends create their own superhero team, Coon and Friends, lampooning Marvel's Civil War and the world of superheroes as a whole. The hands-on demo I played showed off an early portion of the game; the same section that was shown at E3. This is where the kids group at Cartman's house to plan and form their superhero team. Walking around Cartman's home, you find several items, some of which are for crafting later in the game. These are all goofy objects, including the crappacino enema.

Call Of Duty Zombies Goes Back In Time With Evil Pee Wee Herman

Call Of Duty Zombies Goes Back In Time With Evil Pee Wee Herman

Once upon a time, Call of Duty Zombies was only found in Treyarch's series entries. It's now made its way into the other two studios' installments, with Sledgehammer and now Infinity Ward putting their own spin on it.

This year, we're going back to the 1980s in a sinister tale of success, loss, and Satan. Zombies in Spaceland, which is under development in-house at Infinity Ward, features a cast of comedians in the lead roles. Robot Chicken's Seth Green, Neighbors' Ike Barinholtz, and Saturday Night Live's Jay Pharoah and Sasheer Zamata step into the roles of classic 80s archetypes: the nerd, the jock, the rapper, and the Valley girl.

The quartet is lured to meet with a washed up film director played by Paul Reubens (known for his Pee Wee Herman character), who has made a deal with the Devil. The bargain will see his career restored, but only if he can offer up souls in exchange by trapping hapless victims in one of his old films.

While many mysteries remain regarding the upcoming Zelda title, this video gives players a good idea of what to expect with this ability, which appears extremely handy for manipulating the environment and moving things into critical positions.

Magnesis appears to be great for solving puzzles, opening up new areas, and collecting those hard to reach treasures.

The Broncos' Von Miller Makes A Desperate Plea In Madden 17 Launch Trailer

You probably have a good idea of what a football video game looks like by now. Although Madden NFL 17 comes out next Tuesday, EA Sports is betting that you probably don't need another launch trailer just showing you players tackling each other and QBs throwing the football. That much you already know. What you probably don't know, however, is that Broncos' superstar is a pretty good dancer.

The Madden series has a history of off-the-wall launch trailers, including these for Madden 16 and Madden 15.

But if you'd rather see and hear more about the game itself, check out this archived live stream of Game Informer playing the title for two straight hours.

Developer Remains Tight-Lipped On Upcoming Zombie Game

Developer Remains Tight-Lipped On Upcoming Zombie Game

Konami surprised fans yesterday with an announcement trailer for Metar Gear: Survive, a four player co-op game that pits you and your teammates against biologically-infected zombies in an alternate universe. Attacking mindless zombies is a radically different direction for the series, and this is the first post-Kojima Metal Gear title from Konami since his departure. Unfortunately, Konami remains cagey with details, unable to provide much even as we pressed them during a presentation at Gamescom.

Set directly after the events of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes where Mother Base was destroyed, it was believed that the stranded MSF soldiers were left to die. However, according to Metal Gear: Survive, a handful of those men survived when an unexplained wormhole opened up in the sky, sucking them all in and transporting them to an alternate universe. Along with them, debris of the Mother Base was dragged through the portal too. The new setting, a sandy desert wasteland similar to the world of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, is where you and your team must fight these mindless beings in order to survive.

Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare And Modern Warfare Remastered Look Great In New Demos

Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare And Modern Warfare Remastered Look Great In New Demos

In a new look at Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, we had a chance to see the perils of space up close. While the demo was entirely hands-off, we got a solid look at a mission that takes Captain Reyes and his team to an asteroid mining base that has gone off course, headed straight into the sun.

The rapidly spinning rock has thrown off the day-night cycle, which poses a hazard for the team. Direct rays from the sun heat the surface to 900 degrees, meaning rapid death for any soldier caught outside.

This leads to some tense moments of dashing between buildings. We didn't get to see much combat, but the sqaud runs afoul of some mechanical enemies as it continues to search for survivors.
