New gameplay footage for The Evil Within coming from the Eurogamer Expo

The-Evil-Within-ss01 During the developer session at the Eurogamer Expo (yes, they have an expo), Bethesda and Tango Gameworks showed new The Evil Within gameplay footage mixed with old ones already shown during previous events. It's 20-minutes of gameplay and I'm not too thrilled with Resident Evil maker's latest project. Watch it below. 

The demonstration was divided into two parts; the beginning of the game with some sneaking elements, and the shooting gameplay. Don't mind the stuttering in the video. It was due to the live stream capture for the session, not from actual gameplay.

I appreciate the effort from Shinji Mikami to return Survival Horror back to its roots, but the latest gameplay reminded me of Resident Evil 4, which is the point where the Resident Evil series first went a bit more action-oriented. I have my guard up on this one thanks to the cabin defense part with you putting minds to hold the creatures off. It's planned for a 2014 release, so  maybe they have more interesting features to reveal because I do want more horror titles to succeed, especially the high budget titles.

The Evil Within will be available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.

Dead Rising 3's new trailer shows the many ways to deal with a zombie horde

dead-rising-3-5 When it comes to the Dead Rising franchise, the weapons you create to dispose a horde of zombies can go from creative, to down-right hilarious. Even with Dead Rising 3's more serious look, the different weapons you can wield can still bring a big smile in your face. Check out the trailer below.

Weapon crafting is nothing new if you've experienced the first two games. But what's new for the third game is you can actually customize certain vehicles in the game to be zombie killing machines. It may look like a dark Dead Rising, but it's really not with all the weapons shown in this video, especially with the protagonist dressing as Ryu handing out shoryuken's to every zombie near him. Which is why I think the look of the second game was a complete fit with the gameplay.

Regardless, it definitely looks like a good exclusive launch title for the Xbox One. Speaking of which, get ready because it's only two months until we hit November, which I dub next-gen launch month.

A little info about id Software's RAGE

I can't wait for this game. This game has been in my 'to buy list' since the first gameplay footage was shown. This is old school FPS at it's best. It's not a trailer, but more like a six part  behind-the-scene series of the game. With these videos, the hype for this game just gets bigger and bigger.

id Software, if you guy's don't know, are the makers of Wolfenstein, Doom, and Quake. Pretty much the founders of the FPS genre. This is the first video of the six part series, giving us a brief history on id Software and what they are trying to Achieve with RAGE.



The Dawn developer diary gives us an idea of the story in Rage. This instantly popped in my head when they explained how the game starts, Fallout 3.The way the game starts out, the factions included in the game, everything feels similar to Fallout 3. But don't get me wrong, it's definitely a great start to introduce players to a new world they have never been experienced.

They talk about your role in the game, and as you progress you slowly get a bigger picture on your characters part in the story.



Graphics are amazing. This is the first time id Software will be using their new tech engine id Tech 5. They have been working on this game and this tech for years. First glance of the game was first seen in 2007. So yea, that's a lot of years of development to peek anybody's interest. The next game to use id Tech 5 is Prey 2, but that's set to be released till next year.

This is the latest video released just today. This may seem like a Fallout game, but it's not. As said in the video 'Arsenal', there is currency but not in an RPG aspect. There are vehicle combat included, but like what the video has mentioned, they want the focus to be mostly on the FPS experience. Weapons are important in any FPS game, and with this kind of game, the different guns you acquired as you progress is what makes you go forward. Arsenal explains the weapons in RAGE, showing off the unique guns and equipment you can use to take down any baddie.



If you want to see more gameplay footage, click the link now to see past gameplay trailers of RAGE. There are three more developer diaries to be revealed. I'll be updating this post when id Software reveals the latest developer diary.

RAGE has a new release date, pushed back a bit, it will now be released on October 4 for NA, and October 7 for EU on PC, Playstation, and Xbox 360.

Sony NGP Battery Life

One question plaguing gamers about is the NGP / PSP2 is the battery life. With the 3DS' battery life clocking it at 4-5 hours, 3-4 hours will full 3-D. A report from Wired states that the NGP battery life will clock in at about 4-5 hours.

Sony Europe CEO Andrew House chalked the, admittedly shortish, battery time to the flash media and “beauty” of the screen. “It’s influenced our choice of flash media, versus incorporating a disc drive; and number two, the screen is large and gorgeous” He said ” it’s also OLED, which is fantastically good for low power consumption as well.”

I personally have no problem with the 5 hour battery life as it is similar to the PSP's and DS' which I'm already used to managing but longer battery life is always better. Who knows, perhaps when Sony and Nintendo release the 3DS Lite or NGP Slim (which you just KNOW the will) they'll have longer battery life.




As for how the games will look like;


We'll just have to wait for a clearer video to be released but to be honest, the whole tilting gimmick looks stupid. As if our eyes aren't f***ed up as it is. Now we have to look at the screen AND waggle the console around.
