Trailer Focuses On Chloe And Her Stepdad's Relationship

Though it won't feature Ashley Burch as Chloe Price, Life is Strange: Before the Storm should offer fans plenty of the heroine's brand of spunk, bite, and kindness. 

The latest trailer delves into the relationship between Chloe and her new stepfather, David. By this point in the game, you can see their relationship is already somewhat sour, though it hasn't reached the levels of pure resentment shown in the original Life is Strange.

First Dev Diary Lays Out The Game's Thrilling Horror/Survival Hybrid

First Dev Diary Lays Out The Game's Thrilling Horror/Survival Hybrid

Hunt: Showdown is a satisfying twist on the survival genre, pitting multiple players against common A.I.-controlled threats, leaving the decision of when to turn on other players up to the two-person teams. Crytek has released the first dev diary for the upcoming game, which tracks the twisted path that Hunt: Showdown took during development, while also showcasing what makes it unique.

The game's set in a gothic horror-inspired version of the Old West, with five teams of cowboys scouring the map for clues about their ultimate prize's location. Telegraph your location by speaking too loudly to your friend or making too much noise, and other players may learn your location. Whether they decide to leave you alone or add you to their kill list is up to them. Once the main monster is slain, the hunters have to banish the creature's wicked soul before fleeing the map.

Take a look at the video below to see how this dynamic plays out.

Check Out The Special Stages In New Gameplay Trailer

At this year's San Diego Comic Con, Sega announced that Special Stages would be coming to Sonic Mania, and today we got our first glimpse of the new stages in action.

The new gameplay trailer is a nostalgia trip for longtime fans. It starts by showing Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles running around in a few of the Special Stages, which are reminiscent of the levels in Sonic R. Then we get a brief glimpse at a stage that looks like Studiopolis Act 2 before the trailer transitions into the game's Bonus Stages, which are pulled straight from Sonic 3 & Knuckles. At the end, we get a look at the Time Trial mode and its handy reset button, which allows you to instantly start over as you try to perfect your run.

Mascots, Money Pucks, And More In NHL Threes Trailer

Mascots, Money Pucks, And More In NHL Threes Trailer

A new trailer reveals more of what hockey fans can expect in NHL 18's arcadey, 3-on-3 mode.

By default, NHL Threes' gameplay is more over-the-top, with bigger hits, faster skaters, and harder shots. There's also a randomized money puck, which can give your team extra points, or take away from your opponents' score. Both of these features are customizable if you'd prefer a more realistic Threes experience.

This trailer reveals some more details surrounding Threes, namely the singleplayer campaign mode, where you travel across different circuits to unlock new players, jerseys, logos, and more. Also announced in the trailer is the addition of mascots in Threes (perhaps this is the "more" that players can unlock by playing the Threes campaign).

See How Kumail Nanjiani Is Bringing The Yuks To Middle-Earth

A few weeks back, Warner Interactive and Monolith Productions revealed the voice cast for the upcoming Middle-earth: Shadow of War. Kumail Nanjiani, star of Silicon Valley, The Big Sick, and Replay, is one of the game's cast members, and you can see how he's helping to bring the uruk enemy known as The Agonizer to life.

As you can see in the behind-the-scenes video below, The Agonizer is a bit of an oddity. He has a tendency to overthink things such as pre-battle taunts, with humorous results. We'll have to see how well this goofy conceit fits into the game's larger world. On the upside, if he ends up being completely awful, there's a good chance that you'll be able to perform the ultimate heckle.
