Batman: Arkham Origins Stage Demo E3 2013 Trailer Videos. Combat System And Gameplay Look Incredible. Crime Scene Investigations Added

Batman: Arkham Origins Crime Scene Investigation Gameplay Screenshot (E3 2013)

Crime Scene Investigations are new to Arkham Origins.

Batman: Arkham Origins was at E3 2013 from publisher Warner Bros. Interactive and new-to-the-franchise developer Warner Bros. Games Montreal, and marks another huge title from the WB.

This new developer was established only in 2010 and their first task was to take the reigns of the Batman series.

Because of this, many people are skeptical about Batman: Arkham Origins living up to the very high pedigree of former developer Rocksteady, whose “Batman: Arkham Asylum” and it’s sequel, “Batman: Arkham City”, were huge critically acclaimed and best-selling hits that put them on the map.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag E3 2013 Stage Demo, Trailer, Floor Footage, Press Conference Gameplay Walkthrough Trailers and Videos

Surfing on a boat! Arrr!

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is definitely one of the most highly anticipated games of 2013. The game builds on Assassin’s Creed III‘s engine, while taking the theme of the game into pirate-territory with a focus on the ship-battle and boat exploration gameplay that made an appearance in AC3; and expanding it to an entire game.

Here is the Ubisoft Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag E3 2013 Press Conference Gameplay Walkthrough Video.

While the new pirate focus is really cool material to be mined for a videogame, much less an Assassin’s Creed title, the game definitely doesn’t feel as innovative or as big as AC3; as the game essentially looks the same.

I found myself bored with the pirate gameplay, as even though you are a pirate, it just feels like you are on a ship… At least, that’s the impression I got.

Here is the Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag E3 2013 Trailer.

Even so, the game is being taken in a lot of new directions. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag has a new protagonist in Edward Kenway, a British pirate and member of the Assassin Order, and descendant of Connor from Assassin’s Cred III. It will feature three new main cities with a large part of the game set in Cuba. The cities include Havana, Kingston and Nassau; with influence from the Spanish, British and local/surrounding area pirates. All told the game will feature over 50 locations to explore, both on land and via naval ship that you can command (You can also hijack and steal other ships and engage in ship-on-ship warfare).

Ubisoft has also taken Assassin’s Creed IV in a much more open-world direction with the 4th installment, and it will be much less scripted and linear than AC3. Hunting both on land and in water via harpoon has also been added, with the hunting system expanded. In addition, the player’s ship can now be upgraded, and underwater gameplay has been added. Meanwhile, recruiting allies, a feature from Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, returns in AC4. All of this should be good news to AC fans (also, improved crouching!).

Multiplayer will also return. Details in this Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Video Interview:

Here is a look at Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Multiplayer Gameplay in this E3 2013 Floor Footage Video.

Watch all the videos for much more information on this AAA title that will be hitting this year for virtually all platforms. The game will be released on October 29th in America, October 31st in Australia and November 1st 2013 in Europe on Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and WiiU. The game will then hit later this year, likely in November or December, for XboxOne and PS4. Covering just about all the bases except handheld.

Regardless of where you stand on the Assassin’s Creed series, and whether or not you think the yearly annual installment system is making the franchise stale, you have to admit that this game is looking pretty awesome. And I would be surprised if it wasn’t another big hit for Ubisoft. It is a bit surprising that the game is being given a numbered title; but the fact that it stars a new main character, with a new storyline and new pirate direction, make the new numbered title a good fit.

Here are the Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Stage Demos showing lots of gameplay and details from the game.

Mega Man Joins Super Smash Bros. 4 WiiU, 3DS! Retro Awesome To the Max! New E3 2013 Trailer Videos (Nintendo Direct)

Super Smash Bros. 4 Mega Man Wallpaper WiiU 3DS Screenshot Cutscene

Bad freakin’ ass! Mega Man joins the Smash Bros. cast!

Mega Man is in Super Smash Bros. 4 WiiU/3DS, and you can see the Blue Bomber in action with this new E3 2013 Nintendo Direct gameplay reveal trailer which showed off the first official footage of the new Super Smash Bros. games in action!

The game looks really good, the graphics look great, and all of the classic characters you know and love are featured, including: Samus, Link, Donkey Kong, Mario, Luigi, Peach, Pikachu, Fox, etc.

Two new characters were revealed: Mega Man annnnnd…. Villager! The Villager is from Animal Crossing, and has awesome Animal Crossing inspired moves like Cutting Trees and hooking your opponents head with his net!

But Mega Man is the one who stole the show! He has the most badass classic Mega Man, retro gameplay look and has moves inspired by all of the original NES Mega Man 1 8bit bosses! I was also extremely impressed with the way they made Mega Man’s Buster Arm Cannon shoot completely differently from Samus’.

SO. AWESOME.

Officially entitled simply “Super Smash Bros.”, it will be released for WiiU and 3DS in 2014!

Lara Croft 2013 Tomb Raider Top Ten Moments Gameplay Video (Developer Diary)

Lara Croft 2013 Tomb Raider Bones Gameplay Screenshot

So awesome!

What are Lara Croft’s 2013 Top Ten Moments of Tomb Raider 2013 (Xbox 360, PS3, PC)? This video gives you a look at them.

I absolutely can’t wait to play this game. It looks so amazing IMHO. I was hoping I’d be able to get my hands on a review copy, but no such luck. So I’ll have to play it some time at a later date. I hope the game sold extremely well, it deserves it IMHO. I think the developers went in a unique and fresh direction from what I’ve seen.

Deep dark little secret of mine. I’ve NEVER played a Tomb Raider game! :O *hides in closet* I’M SO ASHAMED! One day I will play all of them. I’ve always wanted too and back in the day before I was a multi-console-gamer I used to watch my cousin play the Tomb Raider games.

One day Lara… ONE DAY WE’LL MEET!

Videogame Photo of the Day – GTA IV Compared To GTA V Red Car Screenshot

GTA IV Compared To GTA V Red Car Screenshot

Wow!

GTA V compared to GTA IV red car screenshot shows off the high graphical fidelity of Grand Theft Auto V compared to Grand Theft Auto IV.

What’s even crazier about this comparison is the fact that GTA V is actually coming out on current-gen consoles and not next-gen. Can you imagine what GTAVI will look like?! *The mind wobbles*

Here’s a Grand Theft Auto IV trailer.

And here’s a Grand Theft Auto V trailer.

Grand Theft Auto 5 will be released on September 17th 2013 for Xbox 360 and PS3. PC and WiiU versions are in consideration, and the game MAY hit PS4 and Xbox 720 at a later date.

:O

8bit NES Bioshock, God of War, Shadow of the Colossus, Halo cartridge pile! Freakin’ epic!

I remember seeing an 8bit God of War game… I wonder if other people have taken the above games and created 8bit versions of them by now? If not, THEY SHOULD!

And here is Bit of War“, the NES 8bit God of War fan-created game!

Here is the Bit of War 8bit God of War gameplay video of the game in action!
