State of Decay was always at it’s best when it made you feel like Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead; going out on supply runs, dispatching zombie folk with visceral aplomb and managing your volatile holdout of weary survivors. The first major injection of DLC content into the game, Breakdown disappointingly doesn’t introduce any new content but instead unshackles the player from Decay’s somewhat ho-hum narrative and allows them to get stuck into the meat and guts of what made the whole thing so engrossing in the first place; namely the sublime survival horror and survival management gameplay.
A brand new trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was shown off at the Spike Video Game Awards last night. A brief video at just over minute long, it nevertheless managed to cram in enough gameplay footage and story beats to consolidate the notion that other RPG developers must be shitting their pants at the thought of CD Projeckt RED‘s latest being even half as good as the trailers and videos have suggested. The trailer is over yonder. Fill yer boots.
With Titanfall due to arrive in March next year, EA and Respawn Entertainment thought they would drop some new media from the game on us at this year’s Spike Video Game Awards. Chiefly what they’ve given us are a couple of trailers which document two brand new classes of Titan; the mechs that you’ll be piloting in the game proper.
A brand new Thief trailer has emerged from the shadows. Rather than a long exposition on the gameplay, this latest trailer concerns itself only with telling the story of Garret’s plight in developer Eidos-Montreal‘s reboot of the famed franchise. So, find yourself after the break for a nice, varied chunk of stealing, conspiracies, saviors and yet more stealing. Enjoy!
