What’s better than a red band trailer? An extended red band trailer, obviously, duh. The Last Of Us is definitely looking like one of those rare games that gives non PS3 gamers a reason to buy one. In this trailer we get an awesome and gory look at what it takes to survive in the post apocalyptic world The Last Of Us will thrust us into. Check it out past the break, and don’t forget about the games release this June exclusively on the Playstation 3.
Deep Silver and Koch Media chose their zombie loving couple contest winners. The couple, Jennifer Jones 27, and Rob Blackmore 31, will have beach zombie themed wedding paid for in full. They will also be getting a a Caribbean Honeymoon paid for as well. The wedding will feature most normal things you get at a traditional wedding except with a Dead Island spin. The coolest part, an undead mariachi band. Jennifer will be driven to the ceremony in a custom Dead Island Riptide pick up truck (hopefully it’s classy and comfortable inside). Head past the break to see the video that won them the contest! And don’t forget you can pick up Riptide on April 23rd on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
Most of us around here don’t care so much for the Black Ops games themselves. But if you’re talking zombies mode, I’m in. I think Treyarch would benefit from at least making the zombies mode available as a cheaper standalone game. Maybe something we could get on Xbox Live or the Playstation Network. Coming April 16th exclusively to the Xbox 360 (Until later released elsewhere) is the Uprising Map Pack. You get four new regular multiplayer maps and one new zombie map called Mob Of The Dead. Head past the break for more map info and a video.
Despite being a tremendous critical and commercial success, Blizzard has spent much of the year following the release of Diablo III apologizing for its auction house, required Internet connection, and weak finale. Personally, I loved the game, even though it didn’t grab me with quite as firm a grip as Diablo II, which I continued to play off and on even a decade after its release. It’s a great game, and if the controversies bothered you enough to keep you from playing it on PC, the upcoming console version may be the one to get.
For starters, its impending release on the PS3, PS4, and possibly one or more of Microsoft’s consoles, will not bring with it a required Internet connection to play. The auction house, which for me, made the experience of finding loot less satisfying, also won’t be coming to consoles. Blizzard showed off some brand new gameplay footage taken on the PS3 at PAX East, which you can watch after the break.
You shouldn’t be on the fence about at least trying Deadly Premonition. Everyone needs to at least TRY it. If you’re still unsure maybe the trailer below will convince you otherwise. It gives you the slightest twisted look into the seemingly normal town of Greenvale. April 30th you can pick up the Deadly Premonition: Directors Cut exclusively for the Playstation 3.
When Deadly Premonition was released it almost instantly became a cult hit. With a 20 dollar price tag and many, many hours of gameplay, the game couldn’t be touched. Coming out on April 30th exclusively for the Playstation 3 is the Deadly Premonition: Directors Cut. If you pre-order it you will receive some downloadable content for the game. Time to dust of the ol’ blu-ray player. Details on the game’s new and updated features past the break.
Jasper Byrne’s Lone Survivor is, in my opinion, one of the best survival horror games out there. It’s delightfully twisted love letter to the genre that looks like a 16-bit Silent Hill. It’s also crazy cheap — you can get it on Steam right now for just $9.99 — or you can wait for its release on the PS3 and PS Vita in July. That’s not all.
Berne had more to say about the game in a recent blog post, “I’ve secretly been devoting a lot of time and resources into adding additional content into the game, initially exclusive to PS3 and PS Vita,” The PS version will come with Trophies, Cross-Buy and Cross-Play support (buy it on the PS3 and you can play it on the Vita, or vice versa), as well as a bunch of new items, dialogue, side quests and even a special “yellow” ending. Watch a brand new trailer after the jump.
You’ve got to love Deadpool. He’s such a dick. Not many characters can get away with it as smoothy as he can. I get it Duke Nukem, you’re a pervert. You’re also old and creepy. I get this sinking feeling the Deadpool game could be terrible because we don’t see many awesome Marvel Universe games, but I do have a shred of hope. Maybe I’m just holding on too dearly to my childhood. Check out the gameplay trailer past the break, and lookout for Deadpool this summer on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.
Right now the Midwest is getting raped. With snow. As soon as I’m done here I have to go outside and shovel until I want to pass out. Then drive to Best Buy in the nightmare mother nature has created to get my copy of Tomb Raider. Past the break you can find the launch trailer that should get you amped for today’s release. It’s getting phenomenal reviews and scores so I can’t express my excitement. Just know it will make all the shoveling worth while.
Beyond: Two Souls is taking on the form of a fancy Hollywood blockbuster movie with the likes of Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe as 2 of the main characters. Quantic Dream has gone above and beyond to make their characters as real as possible, those of you who played Heavy Rain know from experience. If you head past the break you can see Willem Dafoe’s reveal trailer, followed by a motion capture behind the scenes video. It’s incredible to see what they do to get as many details as possible in the characters. Beyond: Two Souls will be gracing your Playstation 3′s this October.
Out today is Mass Effect 3′s final DLC. Citadel takes Commander Shepard and the crew of the Normandy on one last mission. A new threat is out to kill Shepard, and it’s up to him and the crew to stop them. Head past the break to see the awesome Citadel trailer. And you can pick it up starting today for 1200 Microsoft Sad Goodbyes.
If you aren’t a Conan O’Brien fan, well you should be. But you should at least be a fan of his ongoing series called Clueless Gamer. Conan isn’t a gamer, and never has been. But he reviews video games on the show, and they are always hilarious. The video past the is by far one of the best. Watch as he plays the upcoming Tomb Raider, dies repeatedly, and pervs on Lara. Enjoy!
I can’t say any more good things about the new Tomb Raider game. I’ve spilled my love for it all over the dance floor in every post I’ve done about it recently. So I will just sit back and let you enjoy the new Reborn trailer you can check out past the break. Tomb Raider comes out March 5th for the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
2K and Irrational Games has moved on to cranking out DLC for the upcoming BioShock Infinite. They have also announced if you’d like to save yourself a little money you can buy yourself a Season Pass for the game. The season pass can be bought on the day BioShock Infinite is released, March 26th. You can get it for 1600 Microsoft Murders Of Crows or for 20 dollars. Buying the pass will save you 30% in the long run on the 3 DLC packs that are to be released. Even better you also receive the Early Bird Special Pack. Head past the break to see what comes in the pack.
It’s been one of the most epic trilogies in the video game universe. But this chapter in the Mass Effect universe is coming to an end. On March 5th ‘Citadel‘ the final single player Mass Effect 3 DLC will be released. Citadel will having you exploring new areas of the Citadel Space Station and reconnecting with characters from every game in the series, before Shepard’s final send off.

You guys are creative. Twisted, but creative. The Dead Space 3 DLC contest spawned a lot of hilarious comments. And per usual, a lot of horror movie related jokes. But alas 3 winners have emerged. And they are entitled to a shit load of DLC for their respective consoles. J-SiN wins for the Playstation 3, Joshua Turney for the Xbox 360, and Hitch for the PC. All 3 of you must message me and give me your email addresses. I will then have the PR company email you both sets of DLC codes, remember you get DOUBLE! Head past the break to see the winning submissions, and the list of DLC the winners get. Be jealous. I know I am.
Any one remember that abortion ‘I Know Who Killed Me‘? Well lets hope Murdered doesn’t get as bad of reviews as I Know Who Killed Me did. Though BD gave it a 4/5? Moving on to the real reason we’re here, Square Enix just released the teaser trailer you can see below. All the details are vague and it seems they want to keep it that way for now. All we really know is in the game you are killed, and somehow, probably as a sexy ghost you have to solve your own murder.
The press release urges us to search for clues via Twitter, Facebook, and the Official Website for the game. Murdered: Soul Suspect is looking at an early 2014 release date on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
You’ve probably already heard about Destiny. If you haven’t, it’s Bungie’s newest game since passing on the Halo series to 343 Industries. Bungie is combining forces with Activision this time around who as you know are behind the Call Of Duty series. Bungie made the Halo Universe massive, and they aren’t dialing it back one bit for Destiny. They plan to have a huge social aspect to the game. Where you could be exploring the massive universe in your game and come across other online adventurers in theirs. But it sounds like it will be so much more than what you would experience in an MMO. And it’s loaded with what Bungie is known for. Awesome FPS action. Head past the break for the reveal video, incredible game art, and lots more on the game!
And by that I mean when I watch it I get over come with the feeling of “Coming Soon” perhaps to a theater near me? Video game trailers nowadays are getting more and more kick ass. They’re more professional and feel more and more like they aren’t just video games but movies as well. Past the break you can check out the all new Lamb Of Columbia trailer for BioShock Infinite. The game will finally be arriving a little over a month from now on March 26th for the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
It’s all but certain the next PlayStation will be unveiled by Sony on Tuesday. We’ve seen teasers, controller prototypes, and spent some time guessing what the console’s logo will look like, but nothing in the way of actual news will arrive until the 20th, when Sony makes their big reveal(s?) at an event in NYC (at 6pm EST). That isn’t stopping the Internet from spreading rumors like wildfire, and the most recent of these is a report from the Wall Street Journal that says the next PlayStation will stream PS3 games. More after the jump.
I can rhyme, now so can we. The Journey Through Terror video series is going very in depth on the Dead Space series as a whole. The latest video Part 3 in the series focuses on atmosphere, the use of mining tools over conventional weapons, Isaac’s suits, and the importance of stasis and kinesis. Check out the video past the break!
In an interview with Now Gamer Dead Space 1 writer Antony Johnston states that the action in Dead Space 3 is “a necessary evil in order to broaden the fan base.” He goes on to say that was the plan from the start. “I know the developers always wanted to go bigger, in terms of scope. And I’ve mentioned before that the universe we created was huge, with lots of elements, which simply didn’t make it into the first game.” He’s right. People definitely complain about the over the top action in the new Resident Evil, but would have keeping it stuck so small have stunted its growth? I think Visceral Games probably has that fear. But when you create such a big universe in a game series, it’s hard to keep it from growing. Read the full interview/article HERE!
Past Tomb Raider games were somewhat streamlined. There wasn’t much room for extensive exploration apart from the main storyline. In the new Tomb Raider you have a map of the island you’re stuck on and there is a lot more you can explore. In the video past the break ‘Guide To Survival Episode #2′, you will learn all about it. There are a lot more areas to explore, and many you can not progress in unless Lara herself has gotten the right items, weapons, or skills learned to do so. I love this because the Tomb Raider games definitely needed to take a turn in the direction of open exploration. But in case you don’t want to stray too far from your main mission you can easily get right back on track using your map. Check out the video past the break.
Dead Space 3 is out today, so instead of reading this you should be playing it and ignoring me at least until next week. If you didn’t buy it yet, then, oh hai! Welcome! Below you can feel free to take “A Journey Through Terror” Part one of four. A more in depth look into Isaac Clarke’s journey through space. There are some spoilers from the first two games so if you haven’t yet gotten around to them (shame on you) I don’t recommend watching. Enjoy!
