Flying Swords And Boss Chat-Off: 25 Mins Of Deus Ex 4

I know it's not really called Deus Ex 4 in any shape or form, but 'Deus Ex: Mankind Divided' [official site] is long and headlines boxes are short. You get the point though: here's the best part of half an hour of Adam Jensen asking for it in Square's upcoming stealth-or-death sequel. On show: new augmentations, purportedly improved combat, 'social boss fight system', a gun…

There’s A New Soma Trailer, Because E3

It’s practically against the law for developers not to release a new trailer during E3. Even if we’ve already played and seen enough of the game to guarantee our purchase already. Soma [official site] devs Frictional Games have dodged their jail time by releasing this video of their upcoming underwater horror adventure ahead of its September 22nd release date.

Feature: 480 million pixels per second?

Is AMD’s New Fury GPU A Titan-Killer?

AMD wheeled out a whole new family of graphics cards at E3 this week. And there was much rejoicing. Well, there was much scripted triumphalism on the keynote stage, at any rate. I say a whole new family. Inevitably, there's some (read: a lot of) rebadging of existing GPUs. But there is one entirely new GPU, known as Fury. It's an absolute beast and it…

The Man Who Stares At Goat Photos: 40 Mins Of MGS V

We've seen some of the Kojimaisms awaiting us in this Autumn's Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain [official site], but what about the bits where you actually do stuff instead of endure/enjoy sustained psychic assault by cutscene? Seems like there's plenty of sneaky Snaking to be had too, building on the excellent stealth of prequel Ground Zeroes. And, well, there are a great many…

Feature: All Of E3 In One Place

Every Game From E3 In One Place, With Videos And Commentary

E3 is in full swing. The announcements and press conferences are done, and attendees are getting down to the business of playing games, chugging energy drinks and wondering when it will all be over (TODAY, IT WILL ALL BE OVER TODAY). Pip is on-site but the rest of RPS stayed home, watching from afar. We've covered the showcase events, gathered all of the news and…

Kingdom Come’s Storm Of Cryengine-Powered Swords

This looks like people actually fighting. Like, properly clobbering each other with swords and boots and such. Whatever else successfully Kickstarted (and its own subsequent campaign, which combined has brough in well over $2m) medial RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance [official site] ends up doing well or poorly, it's gone to town on solid-looking, crunchy animation.

Meet Your Guardian In Gigantic’s E3 Trailer

Gigantic [official site] wants to be the next big eSport, which sounds ridiculous until you discover that James Phinney, lead designer of both StarCraft and Guild Wars, is leading the team behind it. Speaking reductively, Gigantic is a MOBA without any lanes or items and with colossal creatures to fight alongside and an emphasis on third-person shooting. Every skill is a skillshot. It’s also gorgeous…

Need For Speed Reboot Looks Pretty And Fast

Look, I don’t like cars and cars don’t like me. Having said that, the new Need For Speed [official site] reboot is looking really, really pretty. I can appreciate a fine looking game, even if I can’t drive for toffee. Below you’ll find the E3 trailer. It’s all shiny paint and blinding headlights and urban fantasy. In a good way.

Hell’s Bells, It’s Another Mad Max Trailer

I’m a sucker for game footage set to an AC/DC soundtrack. I used to watch this obscure channel on Sky, Game Network, which would often take out of context gameplay footage and set it to completely unrelated, often tonally opposite, music. They had Kameo: Elements of Power set to AC/DC’s Are You Ready and it worked fantastically. Shame the game ended up being terrible. Hopefully…

Ride A Unicorn In Trials Fusion: Awesome Level Mix

One of the more colourful highlights of the Ubisoft E3 press conference, amid all the brown and grey Tom Clancy titles, was a curious video that raised and dashed my hopes several times over before the end. It eventually turned out to be the announcement trailer for an upcoming expansion to Trials Fusion [official site], titled Awesome Level Mix. In which you play a gun-toting…

Superdog: Fallout 4’s Dogmeat Can’t Die

Todd Howard has shared a lot of information about Fallout 4 [official site] so far this E3, but this latest titbit is easily the most important of the lot. Your faithful dog companion will never die. Despite the world being transformed into a nuclear wasteland, this makes Fallout 4's universe the most beautiful of all the universes.

Rats, They’re Back: New Warhammer Vermintide Trailer

Here's a trailer you may have missed among the bigger news of E3 2015, but fans of anthropomorphised rat slaughter will nevertheless want to check out. This short Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide [official site] trailer shows off the variety of environments you'll be trudging through with friends once the co-op FPS releases this autumn.

Partial Warhammer: 5 Seconds Of Total War: Warhammer

I know, I know, we shouldn't play ball with this kind of tease me, tease me, aha now you have to wait some more marketing, but c'mon, it's Total War: Warhammer [official site]. The world's greatest tabletop setting being recreated at immense scale. I want it bad, despite not being all that much of a Total War guy. The scant but Griffony footage appears right…

Ungoggledbox – EVE: Valkyrie In Motion

Half the draw of Valkyrie [official site], EVE Online's VR dogfighting spin-off, is how zip-zap-straight-to-the-eyes it will look on your facebox of choice, so this here two minutes of space-shooting footage scarcely tells the whole story. It's closer than most such trailers to giving some sense of how the real deal with look and feel, though maybe I'm just saying that from my ivory tower…

Heroes Of The Storm: Eternal Conflict Adding More Diablo

We knew Diablo's Butcher was coming to Heroes of the Storm [official site] with its Diablo-y Eternal Conflict expansion, but Blizzard had saved up a little secret or two. They don't let you even into Los Angeles this week unless you have something new to show off, you know. The Monk and dear old King Leoric the Skeleton King are also making his way to…

I Guess CODBLOPS Is Basically Unreal Tournament Now

Wall-jumping and robo-soldiers and crazy weapons and teleporters and OTT awards for doing almost anything: whatever would Captain Price think? Me, I'm sort of relieved that Call of Duty Black Ops III [official site] has given up all pretence of military realism and entirely embraced science-fictional absurdity: it's as though the series is finally allowing itself to be what it's wanted to be for years.…

Killer Instinct On Win 10 With Cross-Platform Multiplayer

'90s fighting game Killer Instinct [official site] returned on Xbox One in 2013, through (I imagine) some combination of nostalgia and Microsoft wanting a fighting game series then realising they owned one through Rare. Now the monsters 'n' magic men punch 'em up revival is headed towards PC for Windows 10. "We don't have any more to share at this time" said the terse announcement…

Toying With My Emotions: More Transformers Devastation

Just a quick update on Transformers Devastation, which I got all excited about yesterday - partly because it's the Bayonetta/Metal Gear Revengywengy devs making it but mostly because I'M A HELPLESS MANCHILD WHO REMAINS FASCINATED BY PLASTIC ROBOT TOYS HELP ME HELP ME HELP ME OH GOD WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME. Last night, we got a better look at how Platinum's 80s-styled robo-brawler actually plays.…
