Surprise, we have another trailer for you! In addition to showing Crackdown destroying everything, Microsoft showed Just Cause 3 burning everything down. If these games time the releases correctly, then by the time you finish burning down everything in Just Cause 3, Crackdown will release.

Check out the Gamescom "Burn It" Trailer below. So much fire...and explosions...and fire...

Just Cause 3 will release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on December 1, 2015.

Scalebound was merely teased to all of us at E3 2014, and it skipped this E3 entirely. Platinum Games did bring it to Gamescom, complete with live presentation of the gameplay with Hideki Kamiya himself at the helm. 

We already knew that it centered around the hero and his dragon, but now we know that the dragon is more than just his steed. His dragon is more of his friend, one he talks to as well as orders into battle. And there will be four-play co-op as well, which means only one thing: more dragons. 

Check out the Gamescom briefing trailer below.

Scalebound is set to release exclusively for Xbox One in the Holiday season of 2016.

Microsoft skipped Quantum Break at E3 2015, but they promised it would be there at Gamescom 2015 and indeed it was. Remedy presented its gameplay for the first time and then snuck in a release date for early 2016.

Quantum Break will release on April 5, 2016 exclusively on Xbox One.

Activision is clearly keen to reveale more of its exo-zombie add-on to the shooter Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, which is going to hit Xbox LIVE today, while PS4 and PC users will get the release next month.

Word is: "Don't miss the thrilling conclusion to the Exo Zombies saga, as Descent takes our four heroes to a deep water Atlas base in order to stop the source of the infection once and for all. Battle new enemies with enhanced capabilities, wield the powerful Trident Reflected Energy Weapon, and unravel the terrible secret that Atlas has been hiding. Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan, Jon Bernthal, Bruce Campbell, and John Malkovich star in this action-packed Exo Zombies finale."

Initially the PC edition of Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain was scheduled to arrive on September 15, 2015, but now Konami has pushed the game for a release to coincide with the launch of the game's console counterparts, which is September 1st.

Here's what awaits PC owners: "METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN heads to PC as a dramatic advance for the multi-million-selling franchise, expanding themes and content seen in METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES. As with its prequel, the PC version of METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN hosts a stunning 4k mode, which adds incredible visual acuity to the game’s huge open world environment. The game is also enhanced for those with NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards, meaning the game’s incredible level of detail is further enhanced as the scarred terrain of global battlefields is brought to vivid life with realistic weather patterns and day turning to night during the course of the action. For a limited time those who purchase qualifying GeForce GTX GPUs will get a free copy of METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN."

I hope this is a sign that the PC version is actually ready, not that it's fucked up like premature releases of certain other games. Bear in mind, Konami, people have the refund option on Steam now.

It's been a long time since King's Quest: Mask of Eternity (1998). And now, after all this time, we return to the wacky adventure series, which evidently seems to have preserved the spirit of its predecessors, while adding a dash of modern-day gaming to it. Keri takes a leap back in the world of King's Quest for us and returns with her full impressions.

Here's a sample:

The original King’s Quest games effectively hurled the player into the frying pan with very little instructions or guidance (You can say that again. I can remember it being one of the most difficult P&C series I ever played. – Ed. Vader). The later games provided slightly better tutorials, but most of the learning with these games was from trial and error, mostly error and a lot of death screens and prayers for a decent save spot. King’s Quest starts a lot like the original games, throwing Graham and the player both into a sticky situation and the player gets to learn on the fly how to think the King’s Quest way. The controls are simple enough (move, interact, talk, open inventory, blah blah blah)—they really haven’t changed much over the last 30 years.

Read our review of King's Quest: A Knight to Remember.

Gamecom kicks off pretty soon, folks. We expect a shitload of media and info to arrive within the next five days. Sadly, we won't be attending the show this year, but I'm hope you are happy that we were able to provide you with coverage of both the E3 2015 and San Diego Comic-Con 2015. In any case, we've already seen publishers and developers promising to showcase a lot of new stuff (mainly stuff that wasn't seen at previous shows). So stay put. We expect the first wave of media to start flowing in today.

Harmonix has revealed the complete song list for their upcoming re-entry into the music game genre, Rock Band 4. The list after the break is the complete list that Harmonix has confirmed. There could be more on the way, and of course, there will be DLC to purchase to add more songs to the library.

Rock Band 4 is set to release for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on October 6, 2015.

Apparently Fallout 4 has over 400 hours of content sandwiched into the game, according to producer Jeff Gardiner.

"I've played the game for probably 400 hours, and I'm still finding stuff that I haven't seen [before]," he told OXM in an interview.

I remember sitting at QuakeCon a few years ago and an audience member told Bethesda's Todd Howard that he had over 625 hours logged into Skyrim. I supposed this is nothing new for Bethesda and their massive games. However, Gardiner explained that most of his new findings are due to the immense crafting system.

"For the larger building stuff it’s not stored in your inventory, it's in the workbench that you're using in that area," Gardiner went on to explain. "I de-constructed this and it's all stored over her and then when I go to build it's pulling from that inventory of stuff I have."

And it gets even more intricate when you bring electricity into the mix.

"It's all common sense visual stuff. If it doesn't connect to the generator, the power doesn't work. You can actually flag stuff to say 'I'm looking for this stuff because I want to make this' which means that when you're scavenging anything that fulfils the requirement gets flagged in the world. When you connect stuff to the computer terminal you have a lot of control and sort of fine tuning. If you've got something that plays music, you can actually define how it’s playing music."

So I supposed there is 200 hours of gameplay and story, and 200 hours of crafting time? At least? This system may put Infinite Undiscovery to shame.

Kingdom is a pixel art-styled game developed by indie studio Noio & Licorice that is probably best described as a cross between The Sims Medieval and Minecraft. However, instead of a first-person POV or a top-down view, it's a sidescrolling game.

You know what? Just watch their trailer and see for yourself.

No release date for Kingdom just yet, but it will release for PC, Mac, and iOS.

Arnie Roth, the producer and music director for the the Distant Worlds Final Fantasy music tour, made a comment over the weekend while at a concert in Pittsburgh that a remake for Final Fantasy XII is in the works. More specifically, he told the audience, "There's a Final Fantasy XII remake underway that's coming out soon."

Naturally FFXII fans went abuzz with delight, and apparently that's not true. At least, Square Enix isn't ready to announce such a remake at this point.

Roth made the following post on the Distant Worlds Facebook page:

Dear friends,

In response to comments posted by fans, I want to rectify a statement made from the stage Saturday night at our Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY concert in Pittsburgh. Following conversations with composer Hitoshi Sakimoto regarding new concert arrangements of music from FINAL FANTASY XII, regrettably, the term 'remake' was used in error during one of the announcements that took place from the stage during the concert.

We sincerely regret any confusion this has caused.

I have a sneaking suspicion that Roth merely said something he wasn't supposed to say yet, and not incorrect information.

Gamescom hasn't started yet, but Capcom wants to get a jump in on things. They've announced that Vega, the Spanish Ninja, will return to Street Fighter V when it releases next year.

This time around, Vega has two fighting modes: claw or no-claw. With no-claw, he can grab as well as perform new attack moves, and players will have to master switching between styles to win the round. His V-Trigger is the Bloody Kiss, where he throws a rose at high velocity at his opponent just before charging them at full speed.

Street Fighter V will release in 2016 for PlayStation 4 and PC.

The Gears of War Ultimate Edition is a remastered version of the original Gears of War games for the Xbox One, but if you buy it, you'll receive access to the backwards compatible versions of the Xbox 360 Gears of War games.

As Microsoft announced at E3, the Xbox One will soon have backwards compatibility for Xbox 360 games. If you own a digital copy of an Xbox 360 game, you will be able to play it on your Xbox One as the backwards compatibility rolls out through the library. With this Gears news, buying the Ultimate Edition will get you the digital copies of all four Xbox 360 games for free, which will then unlock on the Xbox One for free once the backwards compatibility unlocks.

The catch is that you must play the Ultimate Edition between August 25th and December 31st of this year to unlock your Xbox 360 copies of the Gears games. I supposed this is one way to avoid remastering the rest of the games? Still seems rather odd. Why didn't they just remaster it all at once? Well, they didn't ask me for my opinion.

The Gears of War Ultimate Edition will release on August 25, 2015 for Xbox One.

Lego, Batman and GTA take the lead in the latest sales in the United Kingdom. Thankfully though, Rory McIlroy is still up there (phew!).

  1. LEGO JURASSIC WORLD - WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE
  2. BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT - WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE
  3. GRAND THEFT AUTO V - ROCKSTAR
  4. RORY MCILROY PGA TOUR - EA SPORTS

  10. GOD OF WAR III: REMASTERED - Sony 

God of War III Remastered... hmm, still debating whether or not I should try that. I probably shouldn't. I finished the original GoW 3 on the PS3 some years back, so why would I jump back into basically the same game? Why, I ask you.

Today, it's been reported that publisher Konami may be making some serious changes in the way they do business. Also, the situation with well-known game designer Kojima is worse than anticipated. Other reports indicate that working conditions at the company are harsh. Apart from people having to use punch-cards at lunchtime breaks so their employers would know when they are back at their desks, supposedly people who under-perform are then given cleaning and security duties. Such treatment is reportedly happening to low-level programmers, in addition to producers and senior staff.

Konami is a publisher that can easily be described with one word: problematic. The publisher's history if full of bad decisions, PR scandals and other events that definitely screwed up the their reputation to say the least.

For example, recently they made a pretty surprising choice to remove Hideo Kojima's P.T. -- the teaser for Silent Hills -- which was described by many as one of the best promos for an upcoming project in a long time. Well, they removed it. That's not the only thing they removed. Hideo Kojima name was also excluded from the cover of Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain, which is yet another sign that the conflict between Kojima and Konami is excalating. 

Reports of mistreated employees certainly won't help improve the situation.

Full story over at NintendoLife.

Happy, happy, glorious Mondays. Hope all the GoT fans got the gist of this weekend's comic. Now, then, I woke up bright and early and... and... Oh God, no news anywhere. What a shock! Must be something. C'mon, Vader, dig, dig! Ah there we go, this looks interesting. Coming up, shortly.
