The Matrix obviously features a computer simulated world that was created at some indeterminate point in the 21st century. Thankfully, the technology was clearly advanced enough to create a high definition one-to-one remake of the entire globe, but imagine if the machines had taken over in 1991 instead. If that was the case, their simulated world might have ended up looking a bit like Cinefix’s 8-Bit The Matrix video. In it we see Neo battle the machines in strict two-dimensional side-scrolling action. Check it out!
A new trailer has dropped for Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and it’s littered with lots of shooting, Kevin Spacey shouting, and what appears to be a nod to Mortal Kombat’s Scorpion. However the main focus of this trailer is the first look at the four player co-op mode, Exo Survival. In this mode players must work together to fight off waves of enemies, which look to get progressively harder as the mode goes on. Visually, at least by the trailers we’ve seen, Advanced Warfare is looking rather nice. However, we’ll have to wait until at least November before it is known whether this is truly the big leap forward that some are making the game out to be.
The two-and-a-half minute video opens with a quartet of heroes grouped together in a convertible, riding through wide stretches of land populated with mystical creatures. The journey these four heroes embark on appears to be at the heart of the story. Though details on gameplay are still thin, the video suggests Final Fantasy XV features battles that play out in real-time–an uncommon decision for a core numbered game in the series. Also hinted at is a day-night cycle, as well as co-op heroics. Will you play it?
Ever wanted to be a video game hero? The world-renowned freerunner grew up on a diet of Prince of Persia and dreamed of defeating Jaffar and releasing his princess. Soon he was leaping scenery just like a real video game character might as a full-fledged parkour athlete, but he never actually became the 2D hero of his dreams – at least not until now!
Super Mario World on the Super Nintendo is one of the most popular Mario games out there. The animation style is so pleasant and cute. But it was a little too cutesy for gamer NicksplosionFX. He decided to add a little action to the game by replacing Mario with Mortal Kombat’s chameleon character Shang Tsung. The results are bloody awesome!

Continuing the series legacy of delivering the essential survival horror experience, Resident Evil Revelations 2 promises all new horrors, terrifying locations and dramatic twists and turns. Each episode will sell for $6 USD when it launches, or you can hold out for the complete disc with the additional content for $25 USD. This has a real TV kind of vibe as far as how it releases go. The Walking Dead has had some success doing this with their game series from Telltale Games and given the fan base Resident Evil has, I’m sure this will go over just as well. Coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 early 2015.
Forza Horizon 2’s demo hits the Xbox One store on 16th September – alas, there’s no demo for the Xbox 360 version.

Will you buy it?
