Dishonored 2 - CockWork Mansion Gameplay

Image
Bethesda Softworks has released two gameplay trailers showing two different ways of playing a mission in the game. The Low Chaos or Stealth way(below) and the High Chaos or Lethal way(above) and their respective abilities are highlighted within each video. Dishonored 2 is scheduled to be released on November 11. 


What I have to say is that both playthroughs look as fun as ever.

With October right around the corner Sony has released a trailer that highlights the free games of the month. They include Resident Evil HD remake and Transformers Devastation. Both of these games will be available come October 4th.

I haven't played either of these and will most likely try them out. They are free and all.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Story Trailer

Image
This is not the John Snow we've come to know. This story trailer shows us just how ruthless he can be as the antagonist of the upcoming Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Set to be released on November 11, Infinite Warfare takes the future warfare a step further than it's predecessor. 

I'm expecting bigger in terms of story and gameplay and based on what we've seen so far, Infinity Ward aims to do just that.

In sad news this morning. The soon to be released sequel South Park-The Fractured But Whole has been delayed. The game was set to be released this December but has been pushed to next year so that the game can further be polished. Amazon has a release date up of March 31 but that may not be set in stone.

Stay tuned and we'll update you with the date as soon as it's available.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 - TGS 2016 Trailer

Image
I'd heard rumors that they were bringing Boruto to Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 and this trailer confirms the expansion for the game. The manga is still relatively new so it'll be fun to see who they're including as playable characters come February.

Gundam Versus Trailer

Image
Now this has me pleasantly surprised. The Gundam Versus games have been around for some time (as you can see in the trailer). I remember playing against my college buddy on my PSP and getting so swallowed by the game we almost missed out classes; haven't touched any of the games since then. Looking forward to playing this when it's released. Who knows, might invite my buddy over for a few intense matches.

Playing Several Massive Open World Games at Once

Image
I'm sure many of you have played games like The Witcher 3, Grand Theft Auto V, Fallout 4, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and the list goes on. The question is, have you played these massive open world games at the same time. I don't mean that in a literal sense but more in terms of jumping between these worlds in an aim to get to the end game, where the credits finally roll. I haven't and don't think I'd put myself in that kind of hell.

Why is it hell? Let's get into that. Open World games these days are MASSIVE, usually taking up an entire real-world city or small country. Take The Witcher 3 for example. The game world is so expansive it takes you some time to travel from one end of the map to the other and that's one reason these games can be hell; their sheer size. Moreso if they don't have any type of fast travel system, traveling can be a task in itself. Can you image trying to play Skyrim without any sort of Fast Travel. It would take a player ages to get…

My Time With Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Image
As Adam Jensen dived toward an unfinished hotel I couldn't help but feel excited and ready to get my hands on him and his wonderful augments once again. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided greatly improves on it predecessor, Human Revolution, but by the end of it all I'm left wanting so much more.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided opens in grand fashion with a tutorial level that familiarizes you with the new mechanics in the game. From there the story expands to show the fallout from Human Revolution and how a bombing in the outset of Mankind Divided is driven by an Illuminati plot. What this gives you is a story that pushes you from plot point to plot point without offering up too many surprises. Just as the story ramps up the game ends, leaving a unfulfilled taste. "That's it." Those were my words when the screen faded to black and the credits began to roll. Without going into too much detail and not wanting to spoil the game for those who haven't played Mankind Divided yet. T…
