Vampyr trailer shows nightmarish existence of anti-hero

Set in the London of 1918, players will take on the role of doctor Jonathan Reid as he struggles to survive as a vampire without taking lives.

Publisher Focus Home Entertainment calls Vampyr a “unique and deeply immersive experience with a strong and engaging narrative steeped in vampire mythology.”

The new E3 trailer showing off the Dontnod Entertainment-developed game seems to back that up.

I'd like to tell you a story.

It starts with Lego Worlds, a PC game from TT Games and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Lego Worlds was announced last June as a Steam Early Access title, and that's where it remains today. It's a sandbox, Minecraft-esque title, in which you can build and explore and develop attachments to inanimate objects or other Lego figures that will never love you.

Pokemon Go, Monster Hunter, Rhythm Hunter and a new 3DS game

Nintendo packed yesterday's Treehouse livestream with videos about Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon as well as lots of exploration of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Today, the live stream will have a lot more content. Here's the official rundown of the day:

Dead Rising 4 is the non-Christmas Christmas game

Did somebody at Capcom Vancouver hire Shane Black?

Dead Rising 4 is the kind of Christmas movie I can get behind.

Over the last five or six years, a common conversation has taken root in parts of the internet that overlap with hipster circles — and look, I'm not pointing any fingers here, or shirking responsibility or anything — over what makes a Christmas movie a Christmas movie. And from those conversations, a sort of ancillary genre has emerged: the non-Christmas movie.

No trash bags this time around, unfortunately

Nintendo used its Treehouse presentation at E3 to debut a couple of new Pokémon that will debut in Game Freak's upcoming Pokemon Moon and Sun.

The first pocket monster the company revealed was Pikipek, a normal and flying type Pokémon whose special abilities include "Keen Eye" and something called "Skilled Link." In the video compilation that Game Freak put together to show off the new Pokemon, Pikipek can be seen nodding his head back and forth before delivering a pecking-style attack on an opposing Popplio, one of the new starter Pokémon.

Kingdom Hearts’ timeline continues to befuddle with 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue

Kingdom Hearts’ timeline continues to befuddle with 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue

Can the latest numbered installment win new fans?

After 14 years, it's hard to keep track of where each Kingdom Hearts game fits into its expanding storyline. Even developer Square Enix has trouble, it turns out.

As December's Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue nears release, the series' sometimes confounding, often entertaining timeline has been at the forefront of our minds. We met with Tai Yasue, co-director of both that upcoming title and Kingdom Hearts 3, during E3 2016, and we asked him a basic question: How would you explain to someone who's never played it in which order you need to play the series' 14 games?

Capcom moving away from 'macho superhero characters' for the new Resident Evil

The demo for Resident Evil 7 biohazard that's now playable on the PlayStation 4 is a unique piece of content that won't be included as part of the final release, Capcom's Koshi Nakanishi told Polygon in an interview at E3 today. The teaser, Nakanishi said through a translator, is intended to give Resident Evil fans a taste of what next year's survival horror game will be. Just don't expect it to be in the main game.

Resident Evil 7's teaser is "fully representative" of the kind of experience players will get when the game hits PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One in January. But the developers say they didn't want to spoil the game's content, so they created the one-off demo.

Nier: Automata, sequel to 2010’s Nier, will hit the PlayStation 4 in early 2017, not this year as originally planned, according to publisher Square Enix.

The PlatinumGames-developed action role-playing game tells the story of androids 2B, 9S and A2 as they fight to reclaim the mechanoid-driven dystopia overrun by powerful weapons known as “machine lifeforms.”

The main playable character in the game is 2B, a battle android and member of the automated infantry squad YoRHa. She is equipped with a sword for close quarters combat and the “Pod” support system for ranged battle.

Speedrunners are going to be happy about this

We've already seen an awful lot of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild at this year's E3, but one thing we haven't seen yet is the game's conclusion. Maybe that's obvious, but according to the game's creators, dedicated players will be able to speed on through to the game's finish right from the start, if they wish to do so.

"Users may not actually get the full story depending on how they play this game and how they strategize and solve puzzles," producer Eiji Aonuma told Polygon. "Users are able to go to the very end goal without revealing why Link woke up the way he did and where he did. Whether you want to reveal the storyline and find out why Link woke up, or you want to just go straight to the goal, that's an option totally up to the user."
