Mafia III's Writers Give An Inside Look At What Drives The

In a new Inside Look released today by developer Hangar 13, the writers of Mafia III give new insight into the motivations of Cassandra, the leader New Bordeaux's Haitian syndicate. Though her relationship with protagonist Lincoln Clay is a turbulent one, their common enemy and her desire to reclaim and rebuild the Del Ray Hollow community trumps a lot of their distrust.

"The two of them don't trust each other very much," Senior Writer Charles Webb explains in the video. "Lincoln is concerned that at any given point in time Cassandra may turn on him and Cassandra doesn't trust that he's going to look out for the people in the Hollow in the midst of his war on the Marcano crime family." However, as Bill Harms explains, Cassandra recognizes the strength in having Clay as an ally and the possibility that as he disorganizes the Marcano family he may entrust her with more territories through out New Bordeaux.

NHL 17 Franchise Trailer Gives You The Power

Building a winning team is no easy feat in the NHL. From assembling the right team to working with the salary cap and keeping your facilities upgraded, a lot goes into a successful franchise. Get a glimpse at what it takes in the new NHL 17 franchise mode trailer.

Unlike Madden, which splits up the owner and GM/coach roles into different experiences in its franchise mode, NHL combines them. Thus, you'll be just as worried about putting a roster together as you are tinkering with food and ticket prices in order to make sure the fans keep coming. All the while you'll be feeling the pressure of your larger season goals, the constraints of your budget, and the possibility of being fired.

For more on the game, take a look at Bertz's seven takaways from the recent beta as well as a slew of additional details.
