Paper Mario: Color Splash Gets A Splashy New Trailer

Paper Mario: Color Splash is hitting Wii U on October 7, and there's a new trailer featuring all kinds of bells, whistles, and dollops of paint to check out.

After some extensive time with the title at PAX West 2016, I'm definitely curious to see how things shake out for the precision-tapping turn-based combat of the upcoming Mario RPG.

The trailer features a solid mix of gameplay, environments, and a host of characters and foes, so give it a look if the hammer-slamming, pig summoning, card-painting combat piques your interest.

Darkest Dungeon is definitely one of my favorite games that hit this year, an uncompromising dungeon dive with a unique aesthetic and unforgettable characters. I'm excited to see how some of the improvements that have trickled out into the PC version resonate with a whole new audience as the title comes to console and handheld. Check out my review of the PC version here! (Any game that lets me use the word aphotic is automatically awesome in my book.)

Emily And Corvo Toy With Their Enemies In Dishonored 2 Creative Kills Video

Emily and Corvo are a powerful force in Dishonored 2, capable of taking on veritable armies alone. A new video from Bethesda and Arkane Studios shows some spectacular kills and other stunts, highlighting some of the crazy things that players will be able to do with the game's impressive character skills and abilities.

The lengthy video shows a variety of ways to take on foes – including throwing them around like dolls, vaporizing them with security gates, and misdirecting their attention with clones. Players have a lot of tools at their disposal, and from the looks of this, there are a couple that look as though they almost break the game. In the most satisfying way possible, of course.

You Can Kill Hitler, Again, In Sniper Elite 4

You Can Kill Hitler, Again, In Sniper Elite 4

Sniper Elite 4's pre-order bonus will once again allow players to take potshots at history's most notorious dictator.

Rebellion's sniping simulator has long been known for its gory X-ray killcams, but the World War II-era series has another storied tradition: Ever since Sniper Elite V2, those willing to put down cash on the game before release have gotten a chance to assassinate Adolph Hitler.

V2's creatively titled Assassinate the Führer mission tasked players with ambushing Hitler's convoy in Salzburg, while Sniper Elite 3's Hunt The Grey Wolf took players to the port city of Tobruk. The location of Sniper Elite 4's Target Führer mission is currently unknown, but we're sure it will offer up plenty of bloody shenanigans like the previous bonuses.

Horses Getting Nerfed, Reverting To Original Conquest Mode Following Beta Feedback

Dice is looking closely at the highly played Battlefield 1 beta, and has outlined some of the changes it has planned for the final release.

The biggest changes are the ones coming to Conquest mode. Daniel Berlin, lead world designer on Battlefield 1, wrote on Battlefield's blog, "The next time you play the game, capturing the objectives AND getting kills will both contribute towards the final score of a Conquest match."

Other changes include ambiguous changes coming to Rush mode, weapon and vehicle balancing, and more tools to deal with vehicles earlier in matches. Specific callouts include the light tank, which is "too effective" according to Berlin and the fact that horses can take too many bullets. You can expect them to take fewer hits when the game comes out.

Square Enix Releases A New Trailer For Final Fantasy XII Remaster

Final Fantasy XII may not have set the world on fire when it first launched in 2006, but a remastered version of the game could be just what it needed. Square Enix has released a new trailer for Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, which shows off its enhanced visuals and gameplay.

In addition to looking much better than it did the first time around, one of The Zodiac Age's biggest hooks is the inclusion of the Zodiac Job System. This feature wasn't in the original release, but it was added to Final Fantasy XII International Zodiac Job System. That version of the game, which released in 2007, included the 12-job progression system. You'll be able to check it out yourself in 2017, when The Zodiac Age comes to PS4.
