20 Minutes Of Monster Hunting On Display

A lot of buzz surrounded Monster Hunter World at this year’s E3. The franchise has long enjoyed a devoted fandom, but it feels like the new game may be the one that attracts a broader crowd of players. Capcom UK is clearly eager to highlight all the things that set Monster Hunter World apart, and today the publisher posted a lengthy demo of the game in action. 

Over the course of more than 20 minutes of gameplay, we get a glimpse at a number of important systems and features, including stealth, ranged attacks as lures, mounting enemies to attack from on their backs, severing monster tails, grappling to high locations, and plenty of intriguing glimpses at the in-game ecosystem interacting with itself. 

Monster Hunter: World is targeting a launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC at some point in 2018.

New Trailer Highlights Powers, Abilities, And Cosplay

A new look at Agents of Mayhem's abilities shows Saint's Row fans what they can expect from the upcoming open-world action game.

The trailer's tone makes it clear that the telltale Saint's Row humor is being kept intact for this title. The over-the-top racing and combat is evocative of Crackdown, minus the "Microsoft cloud processing" of course. Also worth noting is the agent cosplay, including the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, and series favorite Johnny Gat as Magnum, P.I.

Those hankering for some agent action can pick up Agents of Mayhem when it launches on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on August 15.

Cover Up Crime Scenes From Star Wars, Alien, And Other Iconic Films

In nearly every mob movie, there's the clean-up guy – the guy whose job it is to make sure all the evidence is disposed of and nobody will go to jail for what just transpired. In Serial Cleaner, you're that guy.

The game thrusts you into a top-down environment moments after a murder has occurred. You must infiltrate the crime scene, avoiding police detection, and dispose of bodies, clean up bloodstains, and hide evidence like murder weapons. The core stages draw inspiration from real world crime scenes. We recently got an exclusive look at the bonus stages from the final release, which draw heavy inspiration from classic movie scenes.

The bonus stages are inspired by films like Enter the Dragon, Taxi Driver, A Clockwork Orange, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. You can see the full list of bonus stages below.

Save Ninjago City from Lord Garmadon and his shark army in the latest Lego title based on the upcoming movie.

The game comes out day and date with the film – September 22 – and it features eight locations, with each one containing a challenge dojo as well as story-based content. The locations are also highly traversable, with the ninja crew using Ninjagility wall-running and high-jumping abilities to get around. The game's debut trailer also shows off some flyable dragons that look like they'd be very handy in combat as well.

Finally, the movie tie-in title features Battle Maps: 4-person local competitive play via splitscreen, a nice amenity that fits with the general family focus of Lego.

The new game takes place in Spain during the Inquisition, and tasks you with building your own Assassin Brotherhood to take on missions against the Templars. Over the course of the game you build up a fortress that attracts a roster of more than 40 Assassins, some of whom are familiar, like Ezio, Aguilar, Shao Jun, Claudia, and Machiavelli. Sending teams of three out on missions nets you crafting materials, improves your Assassins, and levels up your Brotherhood, which allows you to unlock new rooms for your fortress. 

Seeking Reinvention, NBA Live 18 Finds Inspiration In Destiny, Overwatch

Seeking Reinvention, NBA Live 18 Finds Inspiration In Destiny, Overwatch

Typically truncated to eight-month development cycles, sports games are known more for granular leaps in gameplay and feature sets. But coming off NBA Live 16, yet another entry that failed to make even a minuscule dent in the market, EA realized this slow and steady progress would never close the gap to make a true contender. To speed up the process, EA Sports granted its Tiburon studio something few sports game developers are ever given – a two-year runway for creating the next game in the series. 

With its newfound longer dev cycle more aligned with traditional game development, instead of continually chasing the advancements Visual Concepts makes with the NBA 2K series, the studio took off its horse blinders and looked to the wider industry as a whole for inspiration. As I sat through my first demo of NBA Live 18's new feature sets, the developers continually made reference to fighting games, shooters, role-playing games, and even MMO raids. 

NBA Live 18's new The One mode serves as the centerpiece for this new approach to sports games. One the surface, The One sounds like a facsimile of the NBA 2K set-up – you start by creating a player that you then use across the NBA-focused MyCareer, 5v5 sim Pro-AM, and streetball centric MyPark modes. But once you dive into the particulars, the differentiation is clear.
