Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare And Modern Warfare Remastered Look Great In New Demos

In a new look at Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, we had a chance to see the perils of space up close. While the demo was entirely hands-off, we got a solid look at a mission that takes Captain Reyes and his team to an asteroid mining base that has gone off course, headed straight into the sun.

The rapidly spinning rock has thrown off the day-night cycle, which poses a hazard for the team. Direct rays from the sun heat the surface to 900 degrees, meaning rapid death for any soldier caught outside.

This leads to some tense moments of dashing between buildings. We didn't get to see much combat, but the sqaud runs afoul of some mechanical enemies as it continues to search for survivors.

Exploring The Various Monsters And Learning How To Avoid Them

We recently got some hands-on time to explore survival horror title Yomawari: Night Alone, a game which plays off of the elusiveness of childhood innocence in a world that is full of constant horror. After you lose your dog Poro while our for an evening walk, your elder sister goes out in search for him, but soon gets lost herself, and it's up to you to find them again.

By venturing out into the dark, you stumble across monstrous yo-kai of various designs that all move and act differently. Once noticed, they begin to attack you and a heartbeat sensor across the bottom of the screen indicates your ability to run away. The more frightened you are, the slower you will run. The best tactic to evade them is to observe their movement patterns, and attempt to quickly slip by unnoticed.

Platinum Games Gives An Overview Of The Importance Of Dragons

Platinum Games Gives An Overview Of The Importance Of Dragons

First announced at E3 2014, Scalebound is a different kind of experience for Platinum Games, a developer that normally focuses on fast-paced action games, such as Bayonetta. With this RPG's mix of fantasy and modernity, it caught the attention of several fans, though one question has been unanswered until now: How does your dragon complement the gameplay, and what is its role? At Gamescom, creative producer J.P. Kellams and Platinum Games' Hideki Kamiya pulled back the curtain and told us what we can expect from dragons in Scalebound.

Scalebound follows the headphone-wearing teenager Drew and his dragon Thuban, and what Platinum Games unveiled today is that you can directly control the dragon in battle. When you aren't in control of him, he is under the A.I.'s direction. Because of the strong bond between Drew and his dragon, the two can merge their consciousness through Dragon Link, which allows Drew to direct Thuban in combat. When this is activated, the camera switches to Drew's over-the-shoulder perspective, and he is unable to move while he directs Thuban. Because of the resulting immobility, this function should be used strategically, so that you don't end up finding yourself in a vulnerable position.

Hands-On Left Us Confused And Unimpressed

By now, Resident Evil fans have probably poured over the "Beginning Hour" demo that was released during E3. We've explored the creepy house. We've watched (and interacted with) the VHS tape in the living room. We've been invited to "join the family."

That demo isn't part of Resident Evil 7. It was put forward for tonal purposes, though fans weren't quite sure exactly what that meant.

Today, we can tell you definitively what Resident Evil 7 is and what it isn't. Mostly. Kind of.

After the fascinating E3 playable trailer that Capcom released during E3, the publisher has taken a slightly more traditional approach with this new one.
