Things in the video game industry are getting crazy. Crazy friggen amazing. The newly announced systems are going to bring forth some seriously gorgeous games. In the video past the break you can take a look into exactly how extensive facial expressions have become. It’s incredible to see how far technology has come. Now if we could only get hair perfect. inFamous: Second Son comes out later this year exclusively for the Playstation 4.
Things have been fairly hush hush about Square Enix’s murder mystery game Murdered: Soul Suspect. If you head past the break however you can see the first official trailer. It looks great, and the leave an obvious hint at the end about E3 this year. So we definitely have more in store for us next week. It also hints a little bit at their next video which looks to show some gameplay. The game is looking to come out on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. Though E3 might spread the game to our upcoming consoles.
Jacob de la Rosa has released a trailer, art and a bunch of images from his interesting looking indie After Visting Hours.
“Elderly residents are disappearing from nursing homes all over the country. An age-old enemy from Grimm’s Fairy Tales is on the prowl, and it has a taste for aged meat. Harvey, a modern-day monster slayer, goes undercover and stakes out a nursing home. The monster is too deadly to face alone, and Harvey enlists the help of his nieces Kylie and Laurel. Together, they will have to face the Big Bad Wolf and defend the nursing home after visiting hours.”
The sci-fi horror stars Jeffrey Goodrich, Charly Lee Bivona, Alana Jo Beckman. READ MORE
Like past installments in this generation’s biggest game franchise, Call of Duty: Ghosts will be multi-platform, but during the Xbox One reveal it was confirmed that Microsoft’s console will be getting DLC first. That’s unsurprising, seeing as Activision and Microsoft have struck similar deals with previous Call of Duty games. If you like your explosions next-gen, you’re going to love the trailer I have waiting for you after the break.
It’s not quite as pretty as I would have expected. I think it’s safe to say Battlefield 4 is ahead of it visually, but when it comes to dog mo-cap technology, Ghosts is really second to none.
A few days ago we were given a tease of the trailer for the upcoming Warner Bros developed prequel, Batman: Arkham Origins, and now, the full trailer has emerged from the shadows of the Internet to punch you squarely in the face with five minutes of pure awesome.
I’ve already watched it twice, because I’m a geek and I like watching guys flip, spin, and beat the crap out of each other while tossing out the random gruff one-liner so their opponent knows their superhero suit is isn’t nearly as cool as what they have on. I could totally keep going, but I’m positive 99% of you have already skimmed past my ramblings so you can watch the trailer. Thanks for that.
There’s no doubt that you can’t just take Diablo III and throw it on a console. It has to be carefully and gently taken over and reformed a bit. And one thing that really needs forming is the whole controller situation. Because you have a lot more possibilities with a keyboard, transferring all those key strokes to a controller takes some finesse. Since Diablo III is also coming to the Playstation 4, there is that magical new touch pad sitting so comfortably on the top of the new Dual Shock 4 controller that will also be used to make playing the game easier and more interesting. Head past the break to check out a developer diary and learn all about it. There are no console release dates yet for Diablo III.
On June 11th you’ll be able to get your hands on a rare item. That rare item is a vampire game. In this latest game play trailer you do what vampires do best. Sneak around and kill people. I’m a little weary that Dark could get boring however because all the game play I’ve seen is filled with creeping. Don’t get me wrong, vampires are all about stealth but we don’t want it to feel repetitive and get boring after the first hour. Check out the video past the break and don’t forget, June 11th, PC and Xbox 360 only.
We’ve got a new full length trailer for Season 8 of Showtime’s “Dexter” that quickly catches us up on the events of the previous seasons before launching in to some new footage. As disappointed as I’ve been in the show recently, I might as well check out this new stretch seeing as its the final one.
“Dexter” returns June 30 to Showtime (including Yvonne Strahovski reprising her role on the show) followed by the premiere of “Ray Donovan.”

If you woke up this morning with a craving to watch two guys beat the crap out of each other during a blizzard than boy oh boy, I do think I’m about to make your day. Warner Bros just unveiled a first look at Batman: Arkham Origins — a prequel to Rocksteady’s gritty Batman series developed by Warner Bros Montreal, the studio that brought us the Arkham City Armored Edition for Wii U. In it, Deathstroke and the Dark Knight engage in glorious fisticuffs.
Rocksteady won’t be handling the development of this game, possibly so they can stay focused on the next-gen Batman game they better be working on right now. This teaser is a bit on the short side, but that’s because it’s just a slice of the tasty Batman pie we can look forward to gorging ourselves on — the full trailer is coming May 20th.
Did you hear? Metro: Last Light is out right now. If you’re not in your fallout bunker yet, it’s too late. I’d say you have just about the perfect amount of time to watch this launch trailer before you’re vaporized like that scene in Terminator 2 when the bombs drop and faces start melting. The good news is, the time it takes for a face to melt varies from person to person, so you might have enough life left in you to read my review.
I’d go on, but the Bloody Disgusting fallout shelter feels a little warm — I think TJ messed with the thermometer again — and I refuse to listen to the screams of my fellow man as each and every one of you gets turned into smoldering, crispy husks in a room that isn’t at exactly 70 degrees.
IFC Films will release Peter Strickland’s Berberian Sound Studio, starring Toby Jones and Tonia Sotiropoulou, on June 14th on various VOD Platforms. Mr. Disgusting hated this movie more than he normally hates things. But I’m still waiting to check it out, I like slow burn stuff like this so maybe I’ll disagree?
Acquired out of the fests by IFC Films, the pic is “Set in 1976: Gilderoy is hired to orchestrate the sound mix for the latest film by Italian horror maestro, Santini. As time and realities shift, Gilderoy is lost in a spiral of sonic and personal mayhem, and has to confront his own demons in order to stay afloat.”

9heads Games recently unveiled their second project, a multiplayer-centric survival horror game that puts you in the shoes (boots, hooves, whatever) of the bad thing that’s killing everyone. Now, before you get all up-in-arms about the multiplayer bit, don’t worry, it actually looks amazing. This is because in Damned, it’s being used in a really unique way. In it, up to five players will have the option of teaming up as a group to better their odds of survival while another player hunts them down. See it in action after the jump.
I once saw a man’s head explode. True story.
You too can see a man’s head, or rather, his entire body, explode in this new gameplay demo for Saints Row IV. You can also see mech fights, Crackdown-esque super-people doing super cool things, witness the dangers of Dubstep, and so much more. Let’s allow those dull corners of the Internet to discuss how big GTA V’s world is, in the meantime we’ll be freezing cars so we can play People Hockey.
Capcom is bringing Resident Evil: Revelations to every serious gaming platform later this month, but the console Capcom looks to be pushing the hardest is the Wii U. Where the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Revelations bring with them a few new features and remastered visuals, the Wii U version offers all that and a couple exclusive features that make full use of the console’s unique controller and Miiverse, all of which you can see in the trailer I have waiting for you beyond the break.
Released in 2002, Eternal Darkness is a survival horror game that developed a strong cult following, yet despite critical acclaim, it never saw the sequel it deserved. That is, until now. (cue Inception trailer sound)
Shadow of the Eternals is an episodic horror game that is being referred to as a “spiritual successor” by developer Precursor Games, but one look at the art style, gameplay, story and characters, and it looks like everything fans have been asking for from a “true sequel” for years. Silicon Knights’ and Precursor founder Denis Dyack recently sat down with IGN to debut a nine minute gameplay demo — currently a work in progress — which you can watch after the break.
Bethesda Softworks just announced the next game in the Wolfenstein franchise and it will be known as Wolfenstein: The New Order. Bethesda is going at it hard with this new Wolfenstein and The Evil Within, and I say cheers to that! The game will be coming out in the 4th quarter of this year, on the PC, Playstation 3, Xbox 360, AND the next gen consoles. Exciting! They haven’t revealed much more about the game thus far, but I’m thinking it may be a bit more action oriented based on the trailer you can check out past the break. What do you guys think, excited? Nay?
The teaser trailer just hit for The World’s End, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright’s new movie that stars Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Rosamund Pike, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine and Eddie Marsan. While this definitely feels more like a teaser than a full trailer – it still introduces a host of crazy sh*t like humanoid blue-eyed aliens along with some giant insect looking guys. Getting a strong Stephen King meets John Carpenter vibe from this one. I also dig that the fence gag is back! This film will complete Wright and Pegg’s Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy.
In theaters August 23 2013, “20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again.

Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.” READ MORE

I couldn’t be more excited for the release of Resident Evil Revelations when it comes out on the Xbox 360. If I had a 3DS I would have already played the hell out of it. May 21st it hit’s North America, and the days following it hits the rest of the world. Past the break the devs chat a bit about the importance of infections in Resident Evil, and about the gore. Check it out!
“They’re only friends on the surface…”
Chiller’s Beneath, which stars Danny Zovatto, Bonnie Dennison, Chris Conroy, Jonny Orsini, Griffin Newman, and Mackenzie Rosman, premiered yesterday at the Stanley Film Festival. And today, we’ve got the trailer! Talk about your largely confined settings!
From director Larry Fessenden (Wendigo, The Last Winter), “When a bloodthirsty, underwater predator leaves a group of teens trapped on a leaking boat in the middle of a lake, the friends must choose between loyalty and survival in this monstrous morality tale from Fessenden.”

Activision has been quietly teasing the next entry in their annual Call of Duty franchise, and now we finally know a little more about it. The game is Call of Duty: Ghosts, and it’s back in the hands of Modern Warfare series developer Infinity Ward. The game will follow soldiers who shoot bad people, only this time, the good guys are masked.
Lay down your pitchforks Call of Duty fans, I’m only joking. This one actually sounds promising, since they’re finally using a new engine that will bring the experience to current and next-gen consoles. “We’re building a new sub-brand, a new engine, and a lot of new ideas and experiences for our players.” said Mark Rubin, the studio’s executive producer. Check out the live-action teaser after the break.
Not often does a trailer move me with its absolute awesomeness. Well, the launch trailer for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is one of those few. I can sit here and try to explain to you how the Grindhouse trailer guy voices this trailer, or how it’s one of the biggest best nods to 80′s actions flicks. Or about how the game takes place in 2007 because back in the 80s they thought the 2000′s were going to literally look like outer space. Just head past the break and check out cool it is. And buy the game right now on the Playstation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and Steam.
The graphics Quantic Dream cranks out scare me. They scare me into thinking when I play their games my PlayStation is going to melt because it can’t handle it. They recently showed off their latest game Beyond: Two Souls at the Tribeca Film festival, and what a perfect place to show it off because the game is practically a movie itself. Check out the Tribeca trailer past the break, and some amazing screenshots as well. The game will release on October 8th exclusively on the PlayStation 3.
Watch Dogs was easily the most exciting announcement to come out of E3 last year, but it also felt so far away. Today that changes, as Ubisoft has revealed a launch date alongside a brand new trailer. What attracted me to this game — outside of the fact that everything else that came out of the event was decidedly “been there, done that” — was how intriguing its concept was.
It’s an open world game set in the modern day, so the setting isn’t exactly unique, but the ability to hack into and control the environment around you is a nice addition. It also looks gorgeous, though that isn’t all that surprising seeing as it’s also coming to next-gen consoles.
