Remedy’s Sam Lake Walks Us Through The Quantum Break Gamescom Demo

about X hours ago from

At Gamescom this year, we had a chance to check out Quantum Break in action for the first time. In a new video, Remedy creative director Sam Lake walks us through the gameplay and the time-shifting powers featured within.

This segment follows Jack as he has to navigate a bridge under siege by Monarch forces under the command of villain Paul Serene. Quantum Break features familiar gunplay, but once the time-based powers come into the mix, the title starts to differentiate itself.

The other part of Quantum Break’s gameplay are the moments when time stutters. These require a bit of problem solving and some platforming, too.

We’re certainly looking forward to finding out more about the game and its story. This includes the live-action segments that will be woven into the narrative and relate to the choices you’ll make as Paul Serene at the end of each chapter.

Quantum Break is on track for release in 2015 for Xbox One. For more, read our impressions from Gamescom. Also, note the Night Springs t-shirt at the end of the demo. Remedy gave us an inside line on that when we saw them in Germany.

Halloween Trailer Puts A Little Terror Under The Tires In Project Cars

about X hours ago from

The team at Slightly Mad Studios is throwing a few features into Project Cars to make players panic in the pole position. The Halloween trailer shows off more dangerous conditions and night driving.

Driving in a GT race must be scary in itself, but Halloween’s the time to make everything more terrifying. The severe weather conditions shown in the trailer below, like slick pavement and limited visibility, should spook players into exercising a bit more care on the track – or at least into gripping their controllers a little tighter.

Amidst the hammy dialogue and Jack's angsty fantasies, Nintendo actually shows some of the functionality of its NFC figurines, including how you load, train, and level them up. But will they win Jack the affections of Gina? You'll have to watch the video to find out. Bonus points if you can get through it without wincing.

Watch The Opening Cinematic From The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

about X hours ago from

You'll have to wait until February 24, 2015 to play The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, but you can see how the game begins now. CD Projekt Red today released the game's opening cinematic, which runs just over three minutes and carries the name "The Trail." A warning to horse enthusiasts: You won't like how this story begins.

This story kicks off with magic and violence aplenty, and shows the same location from two different times, one focused on protagonist and witcher Geralt of Rivia, and the other the sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg.

The new year and this open world RPG's release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC can't come soon enough.

Part one in Ubisoft's "Welcome to Kyrat" video series covered the lowlands. In this second video, we head up to the midlands and the snow-covered mountains. Note that the trailer is behind an age gate due to some mature content.

I am not looking forward to getting my eyes scratched out by those hawks!

Mewtwo Returns And 54 Other Things We Learned About Super Smash Bros. Wii U

Nintendo took more than 30 minutes this evening to run down more than 50 details about Super Smash Bros. Wii U. We captured them all, and there are some interesting tidbits on the list.

The biggest news was also the last. Mewtwo is returning to Super Smash Bros. He's going to be available only if you own both the 3DS and Wii U versions and even then not until Spring 2015. In other words, don't anticipate any other DLC characters before then. 

Here's the full list:

Guest Characters From Double Fine, Harmonix, And More Enter The Fray

about X hours ago from

In March, Game Informer called #IDARB an indie title to watch for it's competitive eSports multiplayer and its pixel-specific character creation tool. Now, Developer Other Ocean is showing off how robust its customization options are by tossing guest characters from renowned game developers into the mix.

Double Fine, Harmonix, Capy Games, Oddworld Inhabitants, and more have thrown in a diverse array of guest characters including Raz from Psychonauts, a team of Rock Band instruments, and the cast of D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die. I might be wrong, but #IDARB just may be the first title to allow players to control a platforming drum kit.

#IDARB is a unique collaboration between the minds of Other Ocean Interactive and the good people of the internet. The developer began the project by post an image of a red box on Twitter, asking users what game should become of it. The result became a 8-player eSport ball game where players smash each other and pick up bizarre power ups to get an edge over each other.

Assassin’s Creed Unity will be out in just a few weeks, and Ubisoft is showing off more of the Paris its constructed. We’ve talked about the co-op heists, and now we’re getting a look at some more of the activities in which you can engage.
