Hot Lead, Cold Steel, And Surviving In The Evil Within

If you’re a Game Informer subscriber, your latest issue includes a deep dive into Shinji Mikami’s return to his roots. The “father of survival horror” is pulling out the stops for The Evil Within, and in a new trailer, you can get a look at how you’ll stay alive when the game arrives.

If you’ve played classic Resident Evil games, you already know that conserving ammunition, making every shot count, and running when you don’t have to fight are the pillars of survival. Those concepts carry forward as you step into the shoes of Sebastian Castellanos.

2D Beat-em-up Heading To PlayStation 4 Next Year

Viking Squad, from developer Slick Entertainment, is heading to PlayStation 4 in 2015.

The game, which looks Castle Crashers-esque, stars a group of vikings as they retrieve treasure for their possessed leader by beating up an assortment of competing soldiers and monsters. The game is planned for release on PlayStation 4 next year, and when asked about a Vita version of the game, senior designer Caley Charchuk said, "We are coming to PS4 first. But we are all fans of the Vita so it’s definitely on our radar!"

Game & Wario's Best Games Gets Its Own Stage In Super Smash Bros. Wii U

The 3DS version of Super Smash Bros.'s many secrets are out in the wild if you know where to look, but there are still reveals in store for the Wii U version of the game.

The latest update is the reveal of stage themed after easily my favorite game from the recent Game & Wario. In the game, you must play WarioWare Microgames while trying to convince your mother you are sleeping. It's surprisingly terrifying, and I am excited to try the stage out when Super Smash Bros. Wii U releases – whenever that is.

On the Miiverse, game director Masuhiro Sakurai writes about the new stage, "Don't let Mom find you while you're duking it out!! If Mom does spot you, she'll scold you and blow you away!! ...I've never seen a fighting action game as chaotic as this one."

At about three times the length, this extended version of Dragon Ball Xenoverse's TGS trailer has a lot more to share.

There is a huge amount of customizations and items for the player character to unlock, and the trailer also details an online hub-city where players can train with notable Dragon Ball Z characters, collect missions, and interact with other players. You can check out the new trailer below.

See Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's TGS Showing In English

Konami had some new videos and details for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain at Tokyo Game Show, and it recently released some of those in English.

Below you will find videos introducing Quiet (who you can learn more about here), and DD, the dog who might actually be a wolf (you can find out more about DD here) with Kiefer Sutherland's voice work. I think he spoke more in these two videos than he did in the entirety of Ground Zeroes.

Simogo Thinks You'll Be Thankful You Don't Know Much About The Sailor's Dream

about X hours ago from

We live in an age of rapid-fire countdowns, teasers, and trailers. In many cases, anyone paying attention knows exactly what to expect from a game (or movie) before loading it up for the first time.

Simogo, who made a splash in the mobile scene with Year Walk and Device 6, is getting ready to release a new game called The Sailor’s Dream. This is where we’d normally tell you all about it, its features, and what you can expect.

We can’t though, because we just don’t know. And you know what? That’s kind of refreshing.

Reasons FIFA Fans Should Play Pro Evolution Soccer

Reasons FIFA Fans Should Play Pro Evolution Soccer

After a delay, Konami has finally released the demo for Pro Evolution Soccer 2015. We played the PS4 version and liked what we experienced. Rival FIFA 15 by EA Sports has also just hit store shelves, but soccer fans of all stripes will find plenty to like about this year's Pro Evo title.

The demo features a friendly match; letting you choose between Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus, Athletic Club, Bayern Munich, Napoli, and Athletico Madrid. Developer PES Productions said that PES 2015 draws less on skill moves and has more responsive controls. In the matches we played, we definitely noticed that retaining possession and dribbling were easier than in PES 2014. Moreover, the player animations as a whole are much smoother than in past years.

Traditionally, video game footy fans have argued over the Pro Evo (formerly Winning Eleven) and FIFA franchises, but this year it looks like both are quality products in their own right. If you're a FIFA fan looking for more football action or are just curious how this year's PES is shaping up, here are a few standouts of the demo.
