Although the Battlefield series has multiplayer down pat, the franchise’s single-player experiences haven’t been as satisfying. The last couple of chapters have felt a little too much like Call of Duty for my tastes. Battlefield: Hardline promises to shake up the formula, though, and the latest gameplay footage looks promising. Here’s 12 minutes of the single-player campaign:
This new Gamescom trailer for the game shows a bit of gameplay from inside the realm of Shangri-La, a very orange and red place that you visit with your f**ken mind. Or something. In this mystical place, “the rules of reality do not apply.” That statement is accompanied by footage of the protagonist shooting a bow at somebody though, which is pretty standard for Far Cry really. It’s nice that Far Cry 4 includes a tiger who you won’t have to hunt for some sort of minor upgrade. Maybe there’s some kind of animal power that will get the snow leopards on your side too. I’m all about helpful animal homies, and much less about murdering them so I can carry a bit more ammo.
For some of us, video games have this uncanny ability of bringing out our worst qualities. While mashing controllers or keyboards, we experience a weird, Jeckyl-and-Hyde “Hulkification”. No one would think us capable of being rational, civil, and fair-minded people if they could see us hunched in front of our screens with bloodshot eyes, pounding our desks and swearing up a blue streak. Gamer rage can be hard to control. Dealing with challenging objectives, seemingly incompetent players, or the frustration of defeat is sometimes all it takes to make us go totally “darkside”.
Sledgehammer, the latest gaming studio to handle the newest installment of the wildly popular Call of Duty video game franchise, has revealed what multiplayer will look like for Advanced Warfare today at Gamescom 2014. From the looks of today’s presentation, they’re clearly banking big time on the exoskeleton suits to help change things for Call of Duty. All in all, the game does look very intriguing as far as multiplayer goes. The guns look great; character customisation looks cool; the new “advanced” technologies in the weapons look fun; and of course with the next-gen graphics, the visuals are looking fantastic. Will you play it?
Gamers got their 1st look at the official sequel in the Dead Island series back at E3 2014. While that game’s cinematic trailer was fun and entertaining, fans were very much looking forward to seeing some gameplay. Well, we all got our wish! As Gamescom 2014 starts to head into high gear, new trailers for upcoming games are beginning to flood the web. Dead Island 2 has joined the game trailer craze with its new debut footage.

The yearly ritual that is the release of a new Call of Duty has become more than a little stale, but with a new setting, a new story and a villain for the ages, Advanced Warfare might give the series the kick in the pants it needs to become as widely praised as it is widely purchased. As anyone who has played Call of Duty in the past might expect, the stakes are unbelievably high in Advanced Warfare. The entire civilization of Earth has been shaken to its core by the first global terrorist attack in history, an attack which stretched five continents and resulted in the decimation of multiple nuclear reactors. The nations of the world were at a loss, so they turned to the one private military corporation that might be able to keep them safe: Atlas.
