Capcom has created a gameplay trailer for Umbrella Corps, featuring a 3v3 match between members of the development team. The teams are playing in One Life Match mode, where they must work together quickly to wipe out the other team without the ability to respawn. The gameplay trailer also presents the weapons available in the game.

Umbrella Corps is a third-person shooter set in the world of Resident Evil and includes an online match mode. It will release in 2016 for PC and PlayStation 4.


Capcom will be hosting another beta session for Street Fighter V, and this time it will be a global beta. The characters available at the start of the beta will include Ken, Necalli, Vega, and R. Mika. Rashid will be added on the second day, and Karin will join on the third.

The beta will start on October 22, 2015 and run through the 25th. Both PS4 and PC users will be able to participate.

Capcom has not said if this will be the beta before launch in 2016.

Despite the controversy surrounding Star Citizen, the game has had a surge of funds from their crowdfunding efforts in the last few months. According to their website’s own fundraising tracker, since June, they have raised an additional $5 million, raising their total to $90 million. At first it seems like this spike has come from backers or “Citizens” buying those pricey spaceships, but PCGamesN has discovered that most of these new funds are from new backers. In fact, Star Citizen has garnered 66,500 new Citizens over the last four months.

Derek Smart helped spark the controversy around this game back in August, and since then he has set out to dissect Chris Roberts’ business practices and ethics regarding developing this game. Either none of this has dissuaded anyone, it’s persuaded a great number to come to Chris Roberts’ defense and pledge their support, or it’s more evidence that there’s no such thing as bad publicity.

Nordic Games has announced the release date for the remastered version of Darksiders II, Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition, for October 27, 2015. That's the same release date as Halo 5: Guardians, so sales should be just as stellar as they were the last time Darksiders II released.

How much have they improved with the release? Here are some before and after shots:

“It’s rare that as developers we get the opportunity to revisit one of our previous games," John Pearl, Design Director of Gunfire Games said in a written statement. "The passage of time and the numerous games we’ve worked on since Darksiders II shipped has allowed us to return to it with a fresh perspective. With that said, we went back to what is a huge game and addressed things we didn’t have time for or didn’t notice the first time. We started by revisiting every asset in the game, increasing the texture resolutions and brought the art up to spec to take full advantage of the new lighting and rendering. Darksiders II has a lot of DLC in the form of weapons, armor and unique locations. These pieces of DLC which felt separate from the main campaign have now been integrated into the game and rebalanced accordingly. Lastly, we’ve addressed much of the feedback we received after the game’s release in regards to balance and bugs. With all these changes, this is truly the Definitive Edition of Darksiders II."

I think he meant Deathinitive edition of Darksiders II.

Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition will release on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One just in time for Halloween.


Another year, another tech showcasing from a major company. This time MS marches onto the state with their whole Win10/SurfacePro/HoloLens/Lumnia campaign. They even mention the Xbox, so it's worth a look I guess.

In terms of entertainment, we see Microsoft, yet again, pushing for the physical side of gaming - ya know, kind of what they've tried to do with Kinect.

We remain skeptical as to how much people (or rather people who play games all the time) will be persuaded to jump around their living rooms, smashing stuff and killing giant robot-like spiders. So much work it seems, and gamers prefer... sitting and slouching.

Morning, folks. To let you know what we're up to right now, we made our 5th ActionTrip vidcast, which was posted yesterday, so you might want to check that out. For the record, I'm currently playing Volume, Armikrog and I plan to stary Skyline's Bedlam pretty soon.

In additon to that, here's my very first taste of Star Wars: Battlefront - I jumped into the beta yesterday. The open beta begins tomorrow, October 8th. Gonna post another, possible more exciting gameplay video later today. Until then, enjoy.

It's another Tuesday and another perfect day for an Action Trippin' Ballscast vidcast! This week we have special guest, reviews editor Vincent Massa, to join us and discuss the biggest #gamereviewerproblem of them all: the differences between playing a game for enjoyment vs. playing a game for review. It's harder than you think, and it requires us to often not play a game how we would normally play it for enjoyment. I know, it's a rough life, but someone has to do it. It might as well be us.

I think next week we will discuss open world games, as everyone seemed to want to talk about it.

Transformers Devastation, the action game from Platinum Games set in the Transformers Generations universe, releases today for current gen and last generation consoles, except for the Wii U of course. Activision and Platinum Games have kept this well under wraps for quite some time, even after their sneak reveal at E3, but the game is finally here in all of its cel-shaded glory.

Review copies were not sent out until today (which makes me nervous, I admit), so our review will most likely not be up until next week.


Ubisoft teased this yesterday from their YouTube stream/trailer, and now it's official. A new Far Cry game will release, Far Cry Primal.

Far Cry Primal sends players back to the stone age, 10,000 BC, to play as Takkar, a hunter trying to survive the time when humanity is near the bottom of the food chain.

“The interesting thing about Far Cry is that it’s flexible. So when a team proposed to explore the idea of a Far Cry taking place during the Stone Age, we just said ‘let’s hear it!’ And the more we heard about it, the more we realized how much of a damn good idea it actually was,” said Dan Hay, Ubisoft executive producer.

“The Stone Age is the perfect setting for a Far Cry game,” said Jean-Christophe Guyot, Ubisoft creative director. “Far Cry usually puts you at the edge of the known world, in a beautiful, lawless and savage frontier. The Stone Age is, in a way, the very first frontier for humankind; it’s the time when humans put a stick in the ground and claimed land for their own, the time when we started climbing the food chain. That came with conflict, against other humans of course, but also against nature itself.”

Their big reveal trailer is below.

Far Cry Primal is set to release on February 23, 2016 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A PC version will release in March 2016.

What's this? Another sports game review? Why yessiree, we have another football game! But this is the real football, the true futbol, as Blake points out in his review. And he had a lot of praise for EA's latest FIFA game. Here's a bit:

Speaking of AI improvements, it is very apparent that work has also been done on player positioning. For example, in previous years there was a tendency for players in the midfield to pinch in around the ball ever so slightly. While that wasn’t necessarily a show stopping issue, this still led to many scenarios where the ball could be played over the top, to a winger sprinting past the collapsed formation. This year, the alignment spacing seems far more consistent with what might be seen in reality. This in turn feeds back into the common theme of executing on plays as a team in order to succeed, not just as a single speedy individual. Again, this is far from a headlining change, but it does wonders to add to the authenticity of the overall simulation.

Check out his complete review for FIFA 16 here.


Yes, it's true—Destiny is getting microtransactions. However, none of these purchases will impact the game; instead, they will be purely cosmetic or emotes.

"You won’t lose a Crucible encounter or fail to clear a Raid because you didn’t have the right Eververse Trading Company emote equipped," Bungie explained on their blog

These microtransactions must be paid for with Silver, a new in-game currency that players will purchase with actual money, and they can only be spent at the Eververse Trading Company store. Bungie's plan for these microtransactions is to fund their service for the next year as well as new content and updates. As a token of their good will, they will drop Silver in everyone's account when the store goes live on October 13, 2015.

Microtransactions are never easy to swallow, but at least Bungie isn't using a paywall behind crucial content or weaponry. It's also a nice idea that they want to use the money behind the transactions to fund additional content instead of selling more DLC.

Okay, so, game devs appearing on a prime time TV show. Looks as though even this is gonna become a trend now. After PewDiePie's appearance on a major TV talk show, now we're seeing Hello Games' managing director Sean Murray showcasing the space exploration game No Man's Sky. The Late Show host Stephen Colbert seemed fascinated by what was shown, as indeed we all have been when the game was first announced two years ago. What started off as an indie project has now become a mainstream interest. Nothing wrong with that mind you, but I worry for this thing now and the expectations that are spinning out of control. If you are promising to make a game with an infinite amount of content and you go on The Late Show to promote it, you'd better be God-damn ready to deliver. That's all I'm saying.

As an ultimate exploration game, No Man's Sky seems to hold massive promise. So, good luck, Hello Games. We're rooting for ya 100%.

Drug merchants have a saying: "Don't get high on your own supply." That philosophy I plan on using in my line of work. Sure, I'm not someone who makes games (yet), but as a reviewer I sure as hell am surrounded by them. Lately I'm continuing to play games even after I've done reviewing them. Normally, there's no shame in that, right. However, when you want to pursue other things in life, like business, socializing or being in a relationship, playing your favorite games takes one epic dump on all of that because it's one of the most time-consuming activities ever invented by man. When I start watching other people playing Destiny and looking for tips to improve my game, hanging out different YT channels to get more hints on how to be better at Crucible matches, well, that's when I surely know my goose is cooked and I'll never see another woman again. Time to ease back, focus on life and work, and most important of all, improve my fucking health, which has been shit for well over 4 months now.

By the way, guys, just so you know Keri, Blake and I are preparing a shitload of reviews this week. Also, Keri and I are writing conducting two interviews (not gonna say what they are yet) so we'll have those up in the near future. Top publishers have promised review copies on time for key games, including Halo 5, Assassin's Creed Syndicate and more. Wouldn't want to blow our own trumpet here, but it looks as though we are on fire this week.

This is Vader, signing off for the time being and going back to his daily duties.

If Destiny was on PC:

I'd buy it.
I'd try it.
I'd tell it to toss off and then go to bed with me gently.
