• Doom Revealed at E3, Gameplay Teaser Trailer

    There were trailers and now there are teasers to said trailers. I think Bethesda has broken the record for the shortest teaser trailer for the upcoming reboot of Doom. Before they officially reveal the game at E3 (June 14, 2015), or at least the full trailer, this is our first look at the game.

    The teaser is just 11 seconds long and only gives us a glimpse of the sort of beasts we may encounter in the game. Sort of giving us an idea of what to expect from the game. Interestingly, there is a beta that is on the works. The official release date of the beta will probably come along with the reveal of the game.

    The news that Bethesda would hold its very first E3 press conference was announced a few months ago. The fact that this was happening meant that they had something big to show. Based on the rumors that have been floating for years now, we can all assume that it is going to be Fallout 4.

    For now enjoy the Doom teaser trailer:

  • Microsoft Mistakenly Passed On the PS4 Exclusive “Rime”


    It seems that Microsoft turned down an indie they should not have, especially since they got a chance to get it first. The game we are talking about of course is the now PS4 exclusive Rime, the dismissal of which now has been considered a mistake on Microsoft’s part.

    VG Leaks obtained some leaked documents which revealed that developers of the game, Tequila Works, initially pitched the game to Microsoft back when the game was still called Echoes of Siren to Microsoft. This was supposed to be an Xbox One exclusive. However when Microsoft rejected the idea the team then went and approached Sony, where the budget was approved and the game was reborn for the PS4.

    According to the leaked documents, the game was described as "Gauntlet meets Minecraft meets Jason and the Argonauts".  During the day the player has to explore an open world island, hunt for weapons, food, and tools. At night however, the player has to spend the time defending against the island’s monsters.

    This game was announced at Gamescom last year and the visuals remind me strongly of Ico, Journey, and Shadow of the Colossus. The art style too does seem reminiscent of Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. This game has all the signs of success  as gamers have been waiting for a game like this for a while. With no news of The Last Guardian anywhere, this game might just fill the void.

    Just recently Microsoft Studios chief Phil Spencer mentioned on Twitter the reason for rejecting Rime. He actually came out and openly admitted he thinks that this decision might have been a mistake. Too early to tell now, but I have a feeling that Microsoft could have really used a game like this in their arsenal. Check out the trailer for yourself!

  • Beautiful New RPG Child of Light’s Release Date


    This is one of those RPGs that I am excited for, and if you are a fan of RPGs and beautiful storytelling, you should be too. The game is called Child of Light and has been developed by a small studio within Ubisoft, many of whose members previously worked on Far Cry 3.

    The game has been created on the same engine as Rayman Legends and Origins, UbiArt Framework, and is the reason behind the games beautiful appearance. It is literally like a vibrant story book coming to life, simply gorgeous.

    The developers took inspiration from JRPGs with most emphasis being placed on Final Fantasy VI. So the combat system is the familiar turned based combat. There is also option for local co-op with each player having unique experiences based on their character’s traits.

    A new trailer for the game revealed that the game will be available on the 30th of April, 2014. The game will be coming to every console out there, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, Wii U and also the PC. This game quickly became one of my most anticipated titles. Check out their tailer to see why:

    Forza 5 Alps gameplay race

    If you are yet to experience the beauty of Forza Motorsport 5, a new gameplay video is the perfect remedy. The video shows lush visuals, realistic sounds, sights and pretty much everything you need in a game to make you drool at the screen.

    Okay, maybe it’s not that impressive, but Turn 10 truly have made a beautiful game out of Forza 5, and they have released a new gameplay video showing a player racing across the Bernese Alps to prove it.

    Everything is so shiny and lifelike. It’s incredibly impressive that even at 170 km/h you can still take in the awesome scenery around you, and the thing I like about Forza 5 is that they have managed to make it actually feel as if you’re really driving at 150+ km/h, which is something that many racing games fail to do.

    The shading and lighting effects are really pretty too, and personally I cannot wait to give Forza 5 a spin.

    If you want to watch the video you can do so here. The game has been rated E for everyone, but be warned, it includes comic mischief, whatever that means.
