Game Trailers – Batman: Arkham Knight! (With Sneak Peak At Box Art)

By: Von Jared Omo

This caught me by surprise! I wasn’t expecting a trailer for the new Batman game so soon, but THIS TRAILER IS AWESOME. That’s all I can say! And with Papa Wayne giving us a little narrative of his will to Bruce while little Brucey is suiting up for another night of kicking ass as Batman just makes the trailer that much more epic. We also witness the first glimpse of Two-Face, Penguin, Harley Quinn, AND THE FRICKIN’ BATMOBILE! Not to mention the return of (dun dun dun!) ROCKSTEADY! Without further ado, ARKHAM KNIGHT!

And here’s a sneak peak at the box art. I don’t know for sure if this is the official box art, but it’s the main profile picture for the ARKHAM KNIGHT Facebook Page.

MARIO KART 8 Announced for the WiiU! FINALLY!

By: Von Jared Omo

WHOO! I’m as giddy as a little Asian school girl right now. Why? Because Nintendo just announced MARIO KART 8 for the WiiU! It’s about time! I can’t wait to experience all that violent go-kart racing in HD 1080 graphics! What? Don’t remember? Mario Kart Wii only pushed it to 720p. And based on what I saw on the trailer, it’s going to be one hell of a ride! Check out the trailer below!

The Legend of Zelda + Dynasty Warriors = HYRULE WARRIORS for the WiiU!

By: Von Jared Omo

WHOA. Seriously? Nintendo released some pretty interesting surprises today. One of which was HYRULE WARRIORS for the WiiU which is slated for a 2014 release. From the trailer, it looks pretty intense and fun! But, the only thing I’m concerned about is the repetitiveness of the game, which was one of the reasons why I lost interest in the Dynasty Warriors franchise (you can say it, you hate me. I don’t mind!). Either way, check out the trailer below and see the gameplay for yourself!

PS. The title isn’t final, either! “Hyrule Warriors” has a pretty good ring to it, but maybe they can come up with something more epic! (Like HYRULE LEGENDS…right?!). Bee-tee-dub, am I the only one feeling the soundtrack?! It sounds frickin’ awesome!

ANNOUNCEMENT: “UNCHARTED” COMING TO PS4! NEW SINGLE PLAYER DLC FOR “THE LAST OF US”!

By: Von Jared Omo

Oh…HAPPY DAY! Well, with the release of the PS4 upon us here in the west coast (that’s California I’m talking about), there’s been a batch of good news released on the Playstation Blog. According to them, a new UNCHARTED game is coming to the PS4! Isn’t that exciting?! (Nod and say “yes”).  And what’s even better is that they decided to accompany that little announcement with a little teaser trailer as well. Now, they claim the trailer is voiced by a “mysterious character” which only means they plan to keep this new project…mysterious? Hmm, well, if you’ve been a fan of Naughty Dog since the Crash Bandicoot days, then you shouldn’t be worried then, right? They seem to always up the ante with every game they release. Now, without further ado, feast your eyes and ears on the UNCHARTED PS4 teaser trailer below!

As for the new DLC for “The Last of Us” titled “Left Behind”, Playstation has also released a teaser trailer for it and guess who’s back? ELLIE! And yes, she will be playable throughout the  DLC and yes, Ashley Johnson will be doing the voice. It also seems like she’ll be accompanied by her best friend Riley (voiced by Yaani King), according to the Playstation Blog, and will take place prior to the events leading up to Ellie meeting with Joel. Well, here ya go! Enjoy!

I hope that these two announcements will get you all excited for the PS4 as well as comfort you in knowing that Sony still have a few gifts up their sleeves for those who still own a PS3, so don’t trade, throw, or sell that PS3 just yet!
