Ronimo Games has released a new trailer for its upcoming 80's inspired PlayStation Network brawler, Awesomenauts
Do yourself a favour and don't discount the game based on its (intentionally) horrendous title, just hit the jump and watch the trailer. The footage is based on the game's intro movie. If the rest of the game can live up to even 0.1% of...
Each year, the hardcore video game community ignites with debates over which platform holder 'won' E3
It's a topic that's been adopted by industry analysts and high-profile journalists, with fictional grades awarded to the manufacturers with the most surprises and best content. But GamesCom — now the world's largest video game event — has a very different tone to it. There's no competition, no..
Just a few months ago the Internet was reeling over the "revelation" that Sony had cut the on-board RAM in the PlayStation Vita
The speculation at the time suggested that the system's capabilities had been slashed in order to meet a mass-market price. Of course, those rumours weren't true, and Sony has said that it laughed off such claims when they emerged. Speaking to Eurogamer, Worldwide Studios..
The premise is simple: the future is bleak
In a 2034 the world has been swept by disease and natural disasters. You play as Lana, a young woman who has just recovered consciousness after a comet strike decimated her home town of Silver City. Struck by the same virus that is transforming the rest of the city's inhabitants, it's only a matter of time...
Silent Hill: Book Of Memories is not exactly what we expected when the game was first announced
Designed specifically for PlayStation Vita, the WayForward developed co-operative title adopts an isometric viewpoint and has players working together in order to solve puzzles and fend off enemies. While the game is a massive departure from the traditional staples of the Silent Hill franchise, the..
Amidst footage of people jumping out of planes and weird octopus weapons, we'd kinda forgotten that Saints Row: The Third might have a story underneath all the madness
But the game's latest trailer hints at some kind of plot — albeit a nuts one featuring a luchador wrestler nicknamed "The Walking Apocalypse". Amazing.
Look video game developers: it can be done
Far Cry 3 might not be the tranquil experience its environments hint at, but at least the game's packed with colour and vibrancy. Proof that first-person shooters can consist of more than the colour brown. And grey.</em> Joystiq's got the full set of screens.
In terms of traditional gameplay experiences, we're really excited about the potential for racing games on the PlayStation Vita
With Sony's new handheld packing some serious power, there's no need for any compromise in physics or visuals anymore, and thus we imagine the system will play host to some great racing experiences in the coming years. F1 2011 is one of the first racing games to be..
She was thrilled with all the awards BioShock: Infinite won at E3 earlier in the year, but someone at GamesCom had to be a complete meanie didn't they? Horrible Europeans, why did you have to tell her that BioShock: Infinite is still a year away from release? We think we're going to have a little cry too.
You're nuts if you don't think Sonic Generations looks good
The anniversary title's latest trailer focuses on a bunch of new environments, including the Chemical Plant Zone, which looks amazing in 3D, and the City Escape Zone, which looks amazing in 2D. We reckon the combination of classic and modern Sonic stages should satisfy everyone, and the fact that SEGA's decided to play on the nostalgia of..
.. What the heck? Kahoots developer Honeyslug has announced a brand new title for the PlayStation Vita over night entitled Frobisher Says!. The game appears to be a nuts blend of WarioWare and Rhythm Heaven, taking advantage of each of the PlayStation Vita's unique input properties. For example, Frobisher might ask you to scratch his back using the Vita's rear-touch panel, or maybe..
Shuhei Yoshida has admitted in an interview with VG247 that Team ICO is "making progress" with The Last Guardian, despite development not moving as quickly as hoped
"The Last Guardian team has been making progress," Shuhei told the website. "Its been very difficult in terms of seeing the progress: not as fast as wed been hoping for, and the team has been under big..
Rumours regarding a PlayStation 3 port of Blizzard's upcoming PC title Diablo 3 have been appearing online before time itself began
So it's hardly surprising to hear the World Of Warcraft company tell an audience at its GamesCom press conference that it "is very, very serious about bringing the Diablo 3 experience to the console". In fact, Blizzard is so serious that it's currently..
Grasshopper Manufacture and imaginative game concepts go together like cheese and pineapple, so the Japanese developer's latest PlayStation Network title won't come as a huge surprise
Entitled Black Knight Sword, the downloadable title — which is set to be published by Digital Reality early next year — is a 2D platformer with a "picture...
As anticipated, French developer DONTNOD announced its PlayStation 3 title Adrift yesterday
But while we were expecting the developer to take the stage at Sony's GamesCom press conference, events didn't exactly occur as we'd predicted. See, while Sony was rumoured to be the game's publisher — fuelled by icons on the developer's website and trademarks filed by SCEE — that's not actually the..
In addition to the main single-player campaign and an updated multiplayer component, Activision's PlayStation 3 port of GoldenEye 007: Reloaded will also include a series of MI6 mission objectives
Seperate from the main campaign, these missions will require you to carry out very specific tasks in order to progress. The visuals don't look quite there yet — perhaps we shouldn't necessarily expect..
Looks like Team Siren's Gravity Daze has gone through a name-change in Europe
The aerobic-based PlayStation Vita exclusive is irritatingly book-ended by the name Gravity Rush in its official GamesCom trailer. Perhaps we're being petty, but we can't stand it when games have different names across multiple regions. Given that this website gets an equal share of traffic from Europe and North America,..
Insomniac's released a new trailer for Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One
The trailer serves as an introduction to the game's co-operative premise, and, in traditional Ratchet & Clank fashion, is laugh-out-loud funny. Watch the trailer after the jump.
The pressure on Ubisoft's marketing team with each new Assassin's Creed title must be immense
The publisher has developed a reputation for producing breath-taking trailers. Thankfully it has excelled itself with Assassin's Creed: Revelations' GamesCom trailer. Set to euphoric synth pads and thumping wobble bass, the latest trailer focuses on the split-roles of Altair and Ezio, showing each of the..
Virtua Tennis 4 on the PlayStation Vita might be primarily a port of the PlayStation 3 title that launched earlier in the year, but it's still packing enough additional features to make tennis fanatics like ourselves double-dip
The big headline comes in the form of touch controls, allowing you to swipe across the touch-screen to play shots as opposed to tapping buttons. Seeing as we nearly always..
It's been a few months since we heard anything new from Polyphony Digital
The studio released the long anticipated Gran Turismo 5 late last year, and gobbled up the time of many car enthusiasts in the process. But with the project now seemingly in the past, many are starting to wonder what's next for Sony's premium racing game developer. According to Sony worldwide studios president, Shuhei..
In case you forgot that there's going to be a Tintin video game: there's, err, going to be a Tintin video game
Naturally it's being developed by Ubisoft, in conjunction with the producers on the upcoming movie. The game's latest trailer (embedded after the jump) showcases a variety of gameplay potential, including two-dimensional co-operative platforming, flight combat and more. The game's due out..
We're not sure a game could possibly be more French than Rayman Origins
While the game's GamesCom trailer is surprisingly devoid of gameplay, the latest snippet — presumably taken from a cut-scene or intro movie — does focus on the game's humour, as Rayman and company concoct a surprisingly catchy melody in their sleep. The game's nothing if not charming. Check out the new trailer after the..
The PlayStation Portable was famous for its crunching loading times
Partly the fault of Sony's conspicuous portable UMD format, loading completely broke the pace of a number of PSP titles. But if Nihilistic Software's upcoming PlayStation Vita FPS, Resistance: Burning Skies, is indicative of future releases on Sony's new handheld platform, loading won't be an issue going forward. See, Resistance:..
When we learned that WayForward was working on a brand-new Silent Hill title for the PlayStation Vita we were extremely excited
WayForward has a terrific pedigree, and we think horror games feel at home on portable systems — there's something personal about playing a good horror game in bed with headphones, right? Unfortunately, Silent Hill: Book Of Memories isn't quite what we had in mind..
If you're yet to see thatgamecompany's third PlayStation Network exclusive, Journey, in action, then we recommend you drop everything and hit the jump
It's difficult to use words to describe this game, and that's not us (nor the developer) being pretentious, that's just a fact. Watch the new footage after the jump.
To celebrate GamesCom, Sony's released a brand new trailer for Studio Liverpool's upcoming PlayStation Vita launch title, Wipeout 2048
While the trailer doesn't bring any new information, it does show off some of the game's more speculative tracks. And of course, in true Wipeout fashion, it sets the action to some killer electronic beats. We can't wait much longer for this.
You may have noticed that the boxart for Resistance 3 is a bit unusual compared to everything else that's out there
The cover was crafted by Olly Moss, a British artist know for his simplistic style. In order to celebrate Resistance 3's imminent launch, Insomniac has released a new Resistance 3 trailer inspired by Moss' work. It looks like the opening credits of a James Bond movie, which makes it a..
Secretly announced during last night's GamesCom press conference, Sony has released the first trailer for Move Mind Benders, a reail compilation including PlayStation Move's best puzzle titles
The package includes Tumble, Echochrome II and Lemmings. Interestingly, Lemmings doesn't currently support the PlayStation Move, but the trailer clearly shows the PSN classic being controlled with Sony's..
Move Fitness wasn't the only new PlayStation Move software announcement Sony made during its GamesCom press conference last night
The platform holder also announced a follow-up to the surprisingly fun four-player augmented reality mini-game compilation, Start The Party. Start The Party: Save The World looks like it's more of the same, with the PlayStation Move transforming into a variety of new..
Thus concludes another bonkers day in PlayStation land, and we're sure the announcements won't stop coming as GamesCom fever takes hold over the course of the week. Sony's GamesCom press conference was, all told, a fairly muted affair with not an enormous number of huge announcements to shout about. But despite the lack of mind-shattering megatons, the platform holder did drop a number of..
A trailer for Tag -- what looks like a simplistic, downloadable graffiti application for PlayStation Vita -- has popped up on Sony's YouTube channel this evening
The video demonstrates the creation of simple pieces of graffiti which can then be placed and shared within the world, presumably taking advantage of Vita's 3G connectivity. The trailer concludes with a PlayStation Store logo, denoting the..
Sony's released a brand new trailer for Uncharted: Golden Abyss, revealing the game's fresh cast of characters and giving some background on the title's plot
Check the trailer after the jump.
Easily the stand-0ut of Sony's GamesCom 2011 press conference, Naughty Dog demonstrated an unbelievable ten-minute sequence of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
Those ten-minutes have been condensed into a short-but-sweet trailer after the jump. This one's well worth watching folks. [Thanks Godisageek]
In addition to the PlayStation Vita's own catalogue of unique social functions, the device will also ship with dedicated applications for Facebook, Twitter, FourSquare and Skype
Remember the "affordable" PlayStation branded 3DTV that Sony announced at E3? The platform holder's announced that the 24" stereoscopic display is making its way to Europe this year too
The TV will retail for 499 across Europe during the Autumn. Sony executive Jim Ryan boasted the television's ability to offer an "accessible entry to 3D gaming". The display will cost £499 in the UK..
.. And so the circle is complete. With both Microsoft and Nintendo already offering their own fitness titles, it was only a matter of time before Sony jumped on board. Move Fitness — as the agonisingly to-the-point name explains — gets you active with the PlayStation Move. A short teaser trailer for the game made things perfectly clear, showing attractive middle-aged people doing workouts in..
Concluding Sony's PlayStation Vita software presentation, the platform holder announced a whimsical puzzle-platformer called Escape Plan
The game has super-stylised two-dimensional visuals, with a Tim Burton-esque gothic theme to the art direction. Very little is known about the game at this stage, other than that it features two characters named Lil and Laarge. The game's due out exclusively on..
Sony kicked off its PlayStation Vita software offering by announcing Resistance: Burning Skies, a brand-new title in Insomniac's first-person alternate history franchise developed by Nihilistic Software
The game puts players in control of Tom Riley, a New York fireman faced with the threat of Chimera's initial invasion on New York. Nihilistic showed off a lengthy demonstration during Sony's press..
Ubisoft's announced its PlayStation Vita software offering as part of GamesCom
The French publisher announced that it has six titles in development for Sony's new platform, including a brand new Assassin's Creed title, Lumines, Asphalt, Dungeon Hunter Alliance, Michael Jackson: The Experience and Rayman Origins. A strong line-up for sure. "With its processing power, dual tactile screens and..
Sucker Punch isn't hanging about now its a wholly owned subsidiary of Sony Computer Entertainment
The developer showcased a downloadable, standalone inFamous spin-off during Sony's GamesCom press conference earlier this evening, entitled inFamous 2: Festival Of Blood. The gothic, vampire-themed PSN title sees New Marais infested with vampires. When...
Perhaps the biggest 'WTF?' moment of Sony's GamesCom press conference this evening was the announcement of a new PlayStation Portable model for Europe
The updated hardware will launch without Wi-Fi support, but will cost a mere 99.99. The new handheld is due out this Fall, and will be marketed heavily alongside Sony's budget PSP Essentials range. SCEA's said there are no plans to launch the new..
Sony closed out its GamesCom press conference earlier this evening with a price-drop, revealing that the 160GB PlayStation 3 will now be available globally for $249
99 / 249.99 / ¥24,980. The price-drop is effective immediately. As in right now. Sony last cut the price of the PlayStation 3 at GamesCom in 2009, dropping the price of the then $399.99 system to $299.99. The platform holder will..
EA and Bioware's "high octane alien adventure" Mass Effect 3 got a new batch of footage as part of GamesCom today
The game's showing — which focused mainly on the game's combat and squad tactics — proved that Bioware's looking to beef up the experience as a third-person action game, focusing on gunplay and AI collaboration. The game's due out in North America on March 6th and Europe on March..
Prepare to do your very best samurai impression, as Team Ninja's just confirmed that Ninja Gaiden 3 will include full support for Sony's PlayStation Move motion controller
The inclusion marks the first time that the Ninja Gaiden series has experimented with motion controls. "We are really excited to announce this fantastic news at GamesCom," stated Team Ninja's Yosuke Hayashi. "Ninja..
DICE decided to use EA's GamesCom press conference to demonstrate Battlefield 3's co-operative campaign running on the PlayStation 3
While the footage was tense and exciting, it was quickly blown away by the multiplayer trailer that concluded EA's press conference. Clearly running on a souped-up PC, the footage showed jet gameplay on a 64-player multiplayer map called Caspian Border. It's..
As part of today's GamesCom 2011 presentation, EA's Todd Batty discussed in detail how SSX's multiplayer will provide a unique, social experience
Influenced by EA's recent racing titles — such as Burnout Paradise and Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit — SSX will allow players to record ghosts which can then be shared with friends for instant competition. Players will be able to participate live in..
We're almost certain the next iteration of the FIFA franchise, FIFA 12, will be a brilliant slice of sporting simulation, but the amount of buzz-words being tossed about by EA Sports' David Rutter during the game's GamesCom presentation were a little bit worrying
In the old days of FIFA mediocrity, buzz-words and gimmicks were what EA Sports used to get people to upgrade to the latest game —..
EA opened its GamesCom conference earlier today with the announcement of a reboot for the FIFA Street franchise
The game — which is due on PlayStation 3 early next year — is gunning for depth, boasting twice as many moves as big-brother title FIFA 12. FIFA Street will also connect to EA Sports' Football Club service, allowing interoperability between Street itself and FIFA 12. EA Sports Season..
If you're going to release a twenty-second trailer for your game, you may as well pack that time with helicopters and people climbing on them, right? That's exactly what Activision decided to do for this Prototype 2 trailer, which is the very definition of a "teaser"
Catch it after the jump.
Ubisoft's shared four-minutes of footage offering a sneak-peak at the upcoming Ghost Recon: Future Soldier's multiplayer component
There's some neat ideas in Future Soldier, including the suppression mechanic. If you're being suppressed, your weapon accuracy and field-of-view will be impacted, meaning you'll need to utilise a smoke grenade or call on the service's of a team-mate to escape. From a..
Despite the anticipation being nowhere near E3, we always enjoy the muted build-up to the GamesCom press conferences
You're never going to see a megaton announcement at GamesCom, but because the anticipation is lower, those muted surprises are all the more impactful. The PlayStation 3 Slim announcement in 2009 was huge, and we'll never forget the furore surrounding Resistance 3 last year. This year..
It's not the most impressive news of the year: we already knew that the PlayStation Vita was scheduled to release 'early 2012' in Europe
But a paragraph of text on the Swedish PlayStation website has given us a slightly more specif
We'd be excited for Dark Souls if we knew we had the patience to play it
Seriously, From Software's GamesCom trailer is super-exciting, showcasing enormous monsters and a visceral brutality that's unmatched by any other game (outside of maybe God Of War). But then we think back to our time with Demon's Souls and we totally get put off. Indeed, this is one October release that we think we'll..
In the latest trailer for Dead Rising 2: Off The Record, protagonist Frank West reveals some of his favourite 'Foto Facts'
He's covered wars, y'know. The trailer's light on gameplay footage, but it's pretty funny. Catch it after the jump.
Capcom and Cyber-Connect 2's released a brand new trailer for Asura's Wrath to celebrate GamesCom
The hastily cut gameplay footage shows the game's protagonist in a one-on-one battle, with plenty of QTEs. The action itself certainly looks fun, but like the DmC trailer from earlier today, this is hardly the most well thought-out trailer the publisher has ever released. Catch it after the jump.
We doubt the GamesCom trailer for Ninja Theory's DmC is going to do much to quell fear amongst fans
The combat looks decent enough for sure, but the game just looks empty — perhaps through the fault of its edit. The trailer showcases a variety of environments, but we still need to see much more of DmC before we can form an opinion on it. The game still looks very early to us, and that's..
Gotta keep putting those Dynasty Warriors titles on the shelves
While some fans are surprised to see Tecmo Koei announce a November 15th US release date for the poorly-spelled Dynasty Warriors 7 Xtreme Legends, we're totally not. The latest expansion's hottest feature is the Legends Mode, which allows players to revisit fondly remembered battles from previous entries in the series. In addition..
Here's your first glimpse of Borderlands 2 ahead of the media blow-out we're expecting later in the week
The trailer focuses on the game's new dual-wielding hero as he shoots the brains out of a variety of fresh foes. The art-style is still great. Expect lots more on Gearbox's RPG-shooter during the course of the week.
Sorry Marvel, but this is the Street Fighter cross-over we've been waiting for
As hardcore Tekken fanboys, we can't wait to unleash our King/Kazuya combo against the Capcom characters that have overshadowed our favourite Namco Bandai brawlers for years. On topic though: this four-minute long Street Fighter X Tekken trailer is supremely exciting. It provides a detailed overview of every facet of the..
Akira Yamaoka's audio has been a key component of Silent Hill franchise for the past ten years or so
But Vatra Games' Brian Gomez does not think the absence of the series legendary composer will have too much of an impact on his studio's upcoming Silent Hill: Downpour. "I was worried when we lost him, we lost him really early on in Downpour. But I was a big fan of Dexter already, so I'm happy..
Following Sony's decision to stream its GamesCom press conference to every corner of the Internet, EA has decided to follow suit
The mega publisher has announced plans to stream its press conference live on its website tomorrow. The company's briefing kicks off at 15:00PM BST, and will be streamed through here. Expect some Syndicate, a lot of Battlefield 3, and presumably a couple of nods towards..
Parisian developer DONTNOD has long been associated with PlayStation
The developer is believed to be working on a science fiction title, which is due to be announced at next week's GamesCom in Cologne. The developer has updated its Facebook page with photos of the development staff rehearsing for the announcement -- DualShock controller in hand we might stress. There have been some reports..
Sony always has a big presence at GamesCom in Cologne
In 2009 it used the European show to reveal the PlayStation 3 Slim. And last year it made some huge software announcements: Virtua Tennis 4, Resistance 3 and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One all got their debuts at the German event. But what can we expect from this year's show? Plenty of PlayStation Vita is almost certainly the safest bet. Sony's..
To celebrate the imminent GamesCom, Warner Bros has released a brand new trailer for its upcoming downloadable shooter, Gotham City Imposters
The trailer focuses heavily on the game's range of customisation options. The game's certainly got a unique and interesting look to it, hasn't it? Check out the trailer after the jump.
Starbreeze has been quiet for far too long
The Swedish developer known for its work on the Riddick series has long been associated with a reboot of Syndicate, using the codename Project Redlime. Despite frequent rumours teasing the game's announcement, Syndicate is still unannounced. But according to reports it's likely to make an appearance at GamesCom next week. A hastily deleted Tweet from a..
British-based indie developer Hello Games has been hard at work on a sequel to 2009's PlayStation Network smash-hit, Joe Danger, and the result is both surprising and brilliant
Entitled Joe Danger: The Movie, the game portrays the biker protagonist as a Hollywood stuntman, his career on the up after the success of his previous game. "It's kind...
Sony's finally got the message: fans love press conferences
While we've had to suffer through dodgy live blogs over the past couple of years, Sony's committed to streaming this year's GamesCom press conference in a variety of places. And honestly, your options are pretty expansive. As we reported yesterday, you can watch the whole thing in PlayStation Home. You can also tune in on the
GamesCom is usually an odd event
Despite housing announcements on par with E3 — the PlayStation 3 Slim for example — SCEE's never quite got round to setting up a reasonable live stream for the event. Perhaps finally realising that its fans do genuinely care about press conferences, the company has announced that its GamesCom presser will be...
Ever since Starhawk was announced, we've all been waiting patiently to see the game's space combat
According to senior producer Harvard Bonin, we'll get our first glimpse of that at this month's GamesCom event in Germany. "Were going to be rolling out our Space level at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany on August 17th," he said. "I cant wait till everyone sees it — gotta love..
Forget those rumours from yesterday, 2K Games has officially confirmed Borderlands 2 this afternoon
The game's due for release somewhere between April 2012 and March 2013. 2K's keeping a nice wide window open for the time being. The game's featured on the September cover of US games magazine GameInformer, and will be on-hand at this month's Gamescom. New characters, skills, enemies, weapons and..
Sony's released its sales results for the quarter ending June 30th, showing the biggest sign of a PlayStation 3 price-drop yet
While Sony's estimates for the fiscal year stuck at 15 million units, hardware was actually down for the first quarter by 600,000 units. To us, this says price-drop. Officially, Sony sold 1.8 million PlayStation 3's last...
Unsurprisingly, Sony will make the PlayStation Vita available at next month's GamesCom
Sony's yet to announce the line-up of games it will be bringing to the event, but expect the usual suspects: Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Wipeout 2048 and Everybody's Golf Next. Fingers crossed Sony use GamesCom to give PlayStation Vita a big 2011 European release date. Please.
Please date PlayStation Vita for 2011
Please date PlayStation Vita for 2011. Please date PlayStation Vita for 2011. We predict two fates for Sony's GamesCom press conference this year: jubilation or abject disappointment. All eyes are going to be on the date Sony gives PlayStation Vita in Europe and North America. Japan's pretty much confirmed for a 2011 release, but Sony's been very coy about..
We just received a press release from DONTNOD Entertainment -- the studio believed to be working on an upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive called Adrift
While the press release was agonisingly ambiguous about the specifics of DONTNOD's debut project, it did provide a few morsels of information. The game's plot has been crafted by Alain Damasio, a figure recognised as the "leading light of French..
It's not really a rumour is it
Everyone's expecting the PlayStation 3 to get a price-drop this year, and there's no better positioned event than August's GamesCom. Sony's known for bringing the heat to the European event, while its competitors flounder. Sounds like a no-brainer to us. MCV's got the report, citing a new price-point of between £179.99 and £199.99 will be announced for the PS3 at..
A forum post on Gamekult has been gathering traction across the 'net this morning
The supposed post details much of Sony's E3 announcement plans, as well as some specifics beyond. The leak hints that an NGP price and release date will be announced at E3, in addition to the device's real name. Seven first-party titles are set to be announced for the device alongside the reveal. In addition, Hideo..
Snippets of information pieced together by superannuation's Twitter feed, TheSixthAxis and NeoGAF [quite the collaborative effort
Ed] might just be enough to paint our first impression of Quantic Dream's next project. We've known for a while that David Cage and his crew have been working on two new projects, but now we have the briefest sniff of some information. First up, domain registration..
