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.

Rayman Legends Release Date Is September 3 2013. E3 2013 Gameplay Trailer Videos (WiiU, Xbox 360, PS3, PS Vita). Sequel To Rayman Origins

Rayman Legends Epic Bosses Gameplay Screenshot WiiU

Freakin’ incredible.

Rayman Legends was one of Nintendo’s third-party highlights for WiiU at E3 2013, even though the game will also be released on Xbox 360, PS3 and PS Vita. The game originally was to be a WiiU exclusive, but Ubisoft decided to delay the game a year to develop it for multiple platforms.

The game is a direct sequel to the critically acclaimed Rayman Origins (released for Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii in 2011. And in 2012 for PS Vita, PC and 3DS).

Like Origins, Rayman Legends is an absolutely gorgeous piece of art, with hand-drawn styled graphics that pop, and a game world that has to be seen to be believed. The game also features massive monsters, and four-player to five-player co-op support! (5 players on WiiU & PS Vita). Even though this game was at E3 2012, it’s still a mighty impressive game even here at E3 2013 and definitely one to watch for. It will be in our hands soon!

Hopefully it has great sales to boot!

Rayman Legends will be released on September 3 2013 in America, and in Europe on August 30 2013.

Gorgeous is gorgeous!

Official Synopsis:
Rayman, Globox, and the Teensies are off wandering through an enchanted forest when they discover a mysterious tent filled with a series of captivating paintings. As they look more closely, they notice each painting seems to tell the story of a mythical world. While focusing on a painting that shows a medieval land, they are suddenly sucked into the painting, entering the world and the adventure begins. The gang must run, jump and fight their way through each world to save the day and discover the secrets of every legendary painting.

Key Rayman Legends Features:

* Wii U Showcase: Rayman Legends takes advantage of the WiiU and the unique capabilities of the WiiU GamePad. Use the touch screen to take out enemies, manipulate platforms, cut ropes to clear a path and much more. With the gyroscope technology, you can move rotating platforms and there are many more surprises to come!
* The Game Must Go On: The WiiU allows you to keep playing the game even when your television is off, continuing Rayman’s adventure on the GamePad.
* 5-Player Co-op Gameplay: Now more players can join in on the fun! With four Wii Remote controllers and the GamePad, up to 5 players can play at once. At any time if someone wants to leave or join in, the game will continue without interruption. The PS3 version also supports 5-Players using the PS Vita screen.
* 3D Boss Battles: The bosses have a big advantage over Rayman’s gang… an extra dimension! Dragons and other epic creatures can attack from all angles, so you’ll have to be on top of your game to defeat them.
* New Challenges: Connect with your friends through a variety of challenges that will test your skill and speed. Check the leaderboards to see where you rank around the world.
* Rayman Rocks! – Jump to the beat of a drum, punch to the bass line, even zip-line during a guitar sustain. Timing and rhythm is the key to beat these maps set to music. See if you have what it takes to be a Platforming Hero.
* UbiArt Engine Advancements: The UbiArt engine has expanded its abilities to now include 3D gameplay elements, a new lighting design, and a new rendering system which take Rayman’s award-winning graphics to the next level.
* The Award-Winning Team Is Back: The legendary team of decorated artists, designers and composers are teaming up again to create new worlds, new characters and a new soundtrack.

Now let this Rayman Legends Metal Trailer fill you with joy!

Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure Brings Superman, Batman, Joker, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Lex, Darkseid, Doomsday To Cartoon Life (WiiU, 3DS, PC). Trailer Videos, Screenshots E3 2013

Scribblenauts Unmasked Superman Gameplay Screenshot (WiiU)

Superman in Scribblenauts? AWESOME!

Scribblenauts Unmasked – A DC Comics Adventure is coming to WiiU, 3DS and PC, and brings the world of DC superheroes to the cartoony, anything-goes Scribblenauts universe! Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Joker, Catwoman, Darkseid, Lex Luthor and more, both heroes and villains, will be seen throughout the game.

In the game players will take control of these heroes (Batman, Superman) and villains (Lex, Darkseid) to accomplish various objectives in the game’s new single-player story mode, or can summon these heroes and villains into the game at any point.

Every single version from that characters past is also in the game (including a whopping 130 different Green Lantern characters!), and players can even mix-and-match pieces of each Superhero to create their own custom heroes!

Want to make “Super-Batman” by mixing Superman and Batman into one? GO FOR IT! What about “Super Doomsday?” How about “Lantern Wonder Woman”?. All of it is possible.

So. Awesome!

Like in previous games, any words you type come to life in the game world, and not only are hundreds of thousands of objects covered via the game’s dictionary, but so are a number of objectives and action words. Ever wanted to see a Zombified Mummy Highspeed Batman? Then this is the game you need! If you were to type those words, a Zombified Mummied, fast-moving Batman would appear next to you! You must use this dictionary, which now includes an insane amount of words (exact amount coming soon), to come up with your own solution to solving puzzles. Not only that, but now you can actually view the dictionary itself, so you can see words that may be missing.

You’ll need to use these words to solve puzzles, and solve them in any way you see fit. Need to burn a tree down? Use Superman’s Heat Vision. Or use Wonder Woman to pull it up from the roots. Or you can simply summon fire to burn it to the ground. Summon rot to eat it from the inside. Or create a beaver to munch the tree down. Maybe use a tornado to blow the tree away. Or use a Rhino to ram it to bits! The choice is your’s!

Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure also features the Bat Computer, which allows you to view profiles and detailed description on all of the DC Comics Heroes, Villains, Items, Vehicles, etc. that appear in the game! Awesome!

This game looks like another huge hit for developer 5th Cell, who previous brought us the original Scribblenauts for DS in 2009.

Here are the list of Scribblenauts games for the uninitiated.

The sequel Super Scribblenauts for DS was released in 2010. The mobile version, Scribblenauts Remix hit iOS in 2011. The first console version, Scribblenauts Unlimited, was released for WiiU’s launch in 2012 as well as on PC via Steam and for 3DS. A 2-in-1 DS combo pack containing Scribblenauts and Super Scribblenauts was also released. Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure marks the 4th game in the series. 5th Cell also made a similar series for DS called “Drawn to Life”, which featured players using drawings instead of typing words. That game got a spin-off called Drawn to Life: SpongeBob SquarePants Edition in 2008, also for DS. As well as a Wii and DS sequel called “Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter” in 2009.

Game & Wario E3 2013 Video Trailer (WiiU). Mini-Games FTW

Game & Wario Minigame Screenshots (WiiU E3 2013)

Tons of new GamePad minigames to play.

Game & Wario releases soon, hitting this month on June 23rd 2013 exclusively for WiiU. It is the latest game in the WarioWare series, although the new title suggests the fact that the “microgames” concept has been expanded into longer-styled mini-games instead.

All of these mini-games make innovative use of the WiiU GamePad, but add a party-game, casual gamer style to it.

Some of the mini-games are really innovative, such as a Ninja platformer where the ninja jumps into the air from platform to platform, with the view from a third-person behind-the-back on the TV. Whereas the viewpoint on the GamePad is top-down. Because of this, you must look at the GamePad to tell which platforms are safe before you actually land on them. If you just watch the top screen, you can’t tell which platform is safe to stand on.

Other mini-games include Skiing with randomly generated tracks (with the controls being on the GamePad), a Where’s Waldo style game, a game that uses the GamePad as a scope to discover thieves before they can steal, and simple games of that nature.

There are over 16 of these mini-games to play, with over 200 rewards for you to unlock! To play these different minigames you’ll have to hold the Wii U in over eight different ways to play them. Just like you had to do with the Wii Remote in the last console game, WarioWare Smooth Moves for Wii from 2006.

This is a game that you’ll want to bust out when you have a lot of friends over. And will certainly be a big hit for Nintendo. It also further fills in the mini-game compilation threshold while also giving us another new entry in the WarioWare series; AND giving us new ways to use the GamePad in unique ways. Giving developers a better idea of the kinds of stuff you can do with it.

Luigi Rescuing Daisy From Waluigi? Nope. But More Luigi Action In New Super Luigi U E3 2013 Trailer Video

New Super Luigi U Mushroom Power Nabbit Gameplay Screenshot E3 2013 Trailer

Nabbit and Luigi powering up with Mushrooms.

I wish Luigi had to rescue Daisy from Waluigi in New Super Luigi U. This E3 2013 trailer for the New Super Mario Bros. U DLC, shows off players controlling Luigi through a number of the more difficult versions of levels from the core game.

While this is absolutely awesome and a welcome addition, as is the new playable character Nabbit, it is somewhat disappointing that they didn’t come up with a new story or at least a cool twist on the story.

Now that you are controlling Luigi, they could’ve made Waluigi star in a core Mario game for the first time, and finally developed Daisy into her own character. Sadly that isn’t the case. Maybe in a second piece of Downloadable Content?

Doubtful but I hope that Nintendo listens to the guy who suggested this idea in the youtube comments, as it’s a great idea and something Nintendo should explore in the future!

Mii Mario Party. Er, Wii Party U Announced. Mii-Fused Minigame Focused Boardgame ala Mario Party. Play Classic Boardgames With 2-Players On One GamePad. Trailer Video, Screenshots (E3 2013 Nintendo Direct)

Mii Mario Party Action Er Wii U Party Gameplay Screenshot (WiiU)

Intense animal racing action right here!

Wii U Party for WiiU has been announced by Nintendo & developer NDCube as the next major Nintendo game to focus on controlling Mii’s in a casual party game environments. This time it is basically “Mii Mario Party”, as the game delivers a virtual boardgame that you can play with up to four friends, all of whom play as their Mii characters.

As they make their way around the game board, you will compete in a variety of Mario Party-style mini-games. It is the sequel to the Wii game “Wii Party”, and will feature a number of those same minigames in upgraded fashion.

However this game’s major hook is the ability to play classic tabletop family boardgames with two players using one WiiU GamePad. You put the GamePad on the table like a game board, and two players, one sitting on each end of the GamePad, can play as it if was a boardgame.

Wii Party U GamePad Boardgame Screenshot (WiiU)

Awesome and innovative.

This is a new concept and one that Nintendo prototyped and demo’d as a possible use for the WiiU Tablet Controller when the system was first unveiled. It’s nice to finally see it being implemented in a real videogame. This is another “quickie” by Nintendo, but the kind of game that appeals to everyone and will surely be a high system seller.

Official Synopsis

It’s Time to Party with WiiU
Enjoy board games and mini-games on the TV, play familiar tabletop games using the Wii U GamePad controller or transform your living room into a game show floor. No matter what kind of party you’re throwing, Wii Party U offers something for everyone.

Key Wii Party U Features:
* Everyone at the party competes with his or her own Mii characters in a medley of party games.
* Experience new ways to play with others using the WiiU GamePad. For example, in “Lost-and-Found Square,” imagine you are the person holding the GamePad and you are lost in a playground. Your goal is to describe your surroundings based on what you see on the GamePad in order to help the other players find your location.
* Post your impressions of game sessions to Miiverse. You can rate your performance by adding a one-to five-star ranking after the match is over.
* When you want to leave the TV behind, you can choose to play exclusively on the WiiU GamePad with an array of 15 tabletop games, ranging from foosball to baseball, for two-player competitive and cooperative play.
* In addition to the main games that everyone can play together, there are 80 minigames that can be played on your own. These include the Tabletop Minigame that can be played with the Wii U GamePad only.

X WiiU E3 2013 Trailer. Nintendo Direct Video Reveals Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Gameplay Footage. Titled Simply X. Badass Mechs Galore

X Mechs Wii U Gameplay Screenshot Exploration

Awesome.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 or “X” for WiiU was Nintendo’s E3 2013 Nintendo Direct bone to hardcore RPG players, offering an amazing looking title in development by Monolith Soft, the developers behind Xenosaga and Xenoblade Chronicles for Wii.

This sequel looks like it will be more of the awesome Action RPG gameplay that hardcore gamers loved with the original Wii game, and will feature massive worlds for players to explore, vast vistas and beautiful graphics. Only now, badass looking pilotable mechs are part of the action!

Xenosaga’s character designer Kunihiko Tanaka is working on this game. It also features Hiroyuki Sawano doing the X’s score, who’s composed many popular Japanese music for TV shows and anime.

This is definitely one to keep an eye on. No solid details yet, or even an official title. Although I’m kinda hoping they keep the game name as simply “X”!

Epic boss battles in this JRPG.
