Experience Iconic Star Wars Trilogy Moments In Disney Infinity 3.0’s Rise Against The Empire

Disney Infinity 3.0 is bringing plenty of Star Wars love and nostalgia for fans. The Rise Against The Empire play set captures memorable moments from the original Star Wars trilogy (episodes IV-VI), dropping you in an open world complete with space combat. You won't just be walking around as Luke Skywalker or Princess Leia; get ready to control some cool vehicles and fly through space.

While lightsaber combat is at the center of the Twilight of the Republic play set, fun battles that get you in the cockpit of different vehicles are a big part of Rise Against The Empire. You'll face off against stormtroopers on a speeder bike on Endor, control your X-wing to destroy the Death Star, and even get on foot to explore open-world planets like Tatoonie. Jabba the Hutt and other iconic characters will also be along for the ride to give you missions. Don't worry; you'll still engage in combat and tackle some stealth to get around the original Death Star interior, so you're not always strapped in. The set is an intense mix of racing, platforming, and space battles.

Spike Lee Is Front And Center In NBA 2K16 Story Is Everything Trailer

Initially rumored, director Spike Lee's (Do the Right Thing, He Got Game) involvement in the next NBA 2K title was confirmed this morning, and now we can see some of the results of his efforts in a new video.

You won't find any gameplay footage in the trailer. Instead, you will find a presumably directed by Lee video emphasizing the importance of narrative basketball. After a narrated montage of empty courts and a few shots of standout moments in the game, Lee finishes the trailer saying, "Star in a Spike Lee Joint."

Compulsion's Psychedelic Dystopian Survival Game Hits Kickstarter

Compulsion's Psychedelic Dystopian Survival Game Hits Kickstarter

Earlier this year developer Compulsion Games, the team behind Contrast, announced We Happy Few, a new title about drugged-up English citizens living a life of blissful denial in the 1960s. We got a chance to play the first-person survival game shortly after the announcement, and were left to wait for more details. Today, the Canada-based Compulsion announced that We Happy Few is actually being funded via Kickstarter, with a goal of roughly $200,000 (250,000 CAD)

The announcement trailer below sets the tone of false, prescription-based optimism in an entertainingly bizarre chat between the in-universe talk show host Jack and creative director Guillaume Provost. He explains how players will control a "downer" who refuses to take his happy pills, trying to fit in with the hopped-up Wellies while foraging for food and supplies. Compulsion expects players to die a lot in their quest to escape the town, so proceedurally generated layouts will greet players each time they give it another go.

The Engineer Torbjörn Dominates The Battlefield In Newest Gameplay Demo

about X hours ago from

Blizzard isn’t being shy with information about it’s upcoming team-based FPS, Overwatch. This latest gameplay preview follows the dwarfish engineer Torbjörn through a seven-minute-long payload match. In payload one team is tasked with moving a objective to the capture zone before time runs out, while the defending team tries to prevent this. Torbjörn's turret and ammo support abilities work very well with this kind of map, which you can see for yourself in the trailer below.

The early build preview gives an intimate look at all of Torbjörn’s combat skills, including his ultimate ability Molten Core.  After watching through the video, one thing is for sure: Torbjörn may seem like a support character, but that doesn’t mean he can’t hold his own.

The Latest Twisted Adventure Begins September 1

about X hours ago from

Last year, both entries in the Danganronpa series released in North America (read our reviews here and here). In that time, it built a reputation as a dark-but-satisfying interactive narrative. We're getting another installment later this year, but this one is more about action.

Today NIS America revealed a September 1 release date for Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, which is exclusively on Vita. Players control Komaru (sister of the first game's protagonist) and Toko (who series veterans should recognize immediately). The story bridges the gap between the previous titles, and features third-person action that has you shooting rampaging Monokumas with a hacking gun.

To get a better idea of what awaits you in September, watch the trailer and look at the screens below. You can also check out the game's original reveal trailer.

Explore Trippy Floating Monster Heads In This PS4 VR Puzzler

about X hours ago from

Monsters are generally unsettling, terrifying things that you'd prefer to flee from, far and fast. By contrast, Gnog forces players to zoom in on weird creatures' heads and enter their minds to solve puzzles, complete with Sony's upcoming Morpheus virtual reality hardware.

Gnog is a collaborative project between developer Ko-Op and indie publisher/developer Double Fine. Ko-Op is also receiving funding from Sony's Indie Pub Fund initiative, since the game will be arriving on PlayStation 4 next year and taking advantage of Sony's VR headset. The psychadelic puzzle game is very enigmatic at this point, and watching the trailer below only makes the entire noggin-exploring adventure even more befuddling.
