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.

Shape Your Own Assassin Before Joining Up With Friends

Shape Your Own Assassin Before Joining Up With Friends

Aside from being executed by a frenzied mob of Parisians, just about everything is more fun with a friend. Assassin's Creed Unity takes that to heart, allowing players to join up with their buddies and take on special missions. A new trailer shows how you can tailor your version of Arno Dorian to support your style of play – and even your fashion sense – before hitting the streets.

Creative director Alex Amancio narrates the video, showing how your wardrobe affects more than how you look. For example, a low-slung hood allows you to maintain an equally low profile, which is perfect for blending into crowds. Weapons and clothing items all have stat bonuses, and you can get a glimpse of some of the possible combinations. There's also footage of how players can work together to navigate tricky situations – something Kim and I experienced during our hands-on time with the game.

Far Cry 4’s Pagan Min Is Not Very Nice

about X hours ago from

There is a reason that Ubisoft puts its villains front and center on Far Cry box art. Last time it was the more-than-slightly sociopathic Vaas. For Far Cry 4, it’s the charismatic Pagan Min, who seems off-kilter in a very different way.

In a new trailer for Far Cry 4, Ubisoft gives us a bit more insight into how Pagan Min rules Kryat (spoiler: with an iron fist). You can check it out below.

Attila The Hun Invades The Latest Total War Game

about X hours ago from

For the latest entry in its popular strategy series, Creative Assembly is staying in Roman times to pay homage to one of the most infamous rulers of the era.

Total War: Attila focuses on the legendary Hun leader, who proved to be one of the most formidable opponents for the Roman Empire. Yes, you could assume the role of this warrior, but you could also take up the other side and repel his advances as he attempts to overtake the crumbling Roman Empire. Creative Assembly refers to this as "survival strategy," as you will also face famines, plagues, and decaying public order.

“With Total War: Attila we will create a Total War game that will challenge and enthrall fans of the series,” says project lead Janos Gaspar in a press release. “We’re reintroducing some features that fans have been asking for, such as family trees and skill trees, and improving many of the core aspects of Total War we know are important to them. But to really bring the period to life, we’re building on these foundations with many new strategic features for them to consider, such as advanced street-fighting, civilians, complete settlement destruction and dynamic fire that can rage across a city as armies clash. We want to push players to the limits of their skill to survive against the odds, and to love every minute of it.” 

Your First Look At Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition

about X hours ago from

When Sleeping Dogs came out in 2012, it had a lot going against it. The title had been through development hell and people weren’t quite sure what to expect. Sliding right in between Saints Row: The Third and Grand Theft Auto V, Sleeping Dogs was a pleasant surprise and sold 1.75 million copies in its first seven months.

Square Enix is giving it (and you) another chance at it with an upcoming Definitive Edition. It’s coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, running at 1080p on both, and comes with all of the available DLC. It will also be available on PC.
