Gamescom 2015: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Dons the Best Ever Ray-Bans in New Screens

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Dons the Best Ever Ray-Bans in New Screens

City of glasses

Not every game needs to have a brand new trailer for Gamescom 2015, y'know. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is one such title that, so far, has opted for a fresh set of screenshots, rather than a fancy pants new video for you to watch. In the images, we see gruff protagonist Adam Jensen modelling his new sunglasses and glorious goatee,...

Gamescom 2015: 10 Years Later and the 'Story Begins' with Final Fantasy XV's Dawn Trailer

10 Years Later and the 'Story Begins' with Final Fantasy XV's Dawn Trailer

Shed a tear

We're not sure what to make of Final Fantasy XV's Gamescom 2015 trailer. On the one hand, yes, it is actually a new look at the game. On the other, it doesn't really show much at all. Featuring a young Noctis and his regretful father, it's a pretty emotional clip, but it's hard not to feel like we need something more at this point...

New Just Cause 3 Gameplay Packs as Many Explosions as Possible

Boom town

Oh Rico, when will your lust for fiery explosions ever be satisfied? We're not sure if that question has an answer, but Just Cause 3's protagonist doesn't seem to be giving up on a life of chaos any time soon. The sandbox title's newest trailer is more of the same, but we doubt anyone's really complaining. The carnage on display looks...

Gamescom 2015: Rise of the Tomb Raider Goes Gung-Ho in Gameplay Trailer

Rise of the Tomb Raider Goes Gung-Ho in Gameplay Trailer

Killer Croft

Crystal Dynamics looked to Uncharted for inspiration for its Tomb Raider reboot, and it looks like the developer's used Naughty Dog as a guide again. This time the studio's latest takes more than a few cues from The Last of Us, as we see protagonist Lara Croft sneaking through an enemy base Rambo-style, slitting lots of throats. The...

What Time Are the EA, Final Fantasy XV, and Call of Duty Gamescom 2015 Streams?

Live and kicking

Over the years, we've gotten used to Gamescom being one of the biggest weeks in the gaming calendar for PlayStation. That's not entirely true in 2015, though, as Sony has opted to forgo its annual press conference at the German show in favour of Paris Games Week a little later in the year. The decision seemed sound at the time,...

Review: Life Is Strange: Episode 4 - Dark Room (PS4)

Life Is Strange: Episode 4 - Dark Room (PS4)

Dark side of the moons

French developer DONTNOD really kicked things into overdrive with the third episode of Life Is Strange. While the first two episodes were certainly divisive – even amongst the staff here - it would be hard to argue that the series wasn't in the process of carving out its own niche. Episode three was where proceedings truly...

Square Enix Knew Rise of the Tomb Raider's Timed Exclusivity Would P*** Off PS4 Players

Well, that's a start

Square Enix may actually understand its audience after all, as the publisher's European and North American boss Phil Rogers has admitted that the company knew it would "disappoint fans" by essentially delaying the PlayStation 4 version of Rise of the Tomb Raider. The company still seems adamant that this was a good business...

Square Enix Plans on Showing Old Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae 2.0 Gameplay at Gamescom 2015

We hope that you didn't expect to see a lot of new Final Fantasy XV footage at Gamescom 2015 next month, because according to Square Enix's schedule, the publisher's planning on showing the game's same old Episode Duscae demo over 17 times at the German expo. Each live demonstration will be around two hours long, and on each day of the...
