Video: Tekken 7 Announcement Trailer

Nerdgasm on deck.  Despite earlier leaks in the day, Tekken 7 has now been “officially” revealed with more info coming soon at Comic-Con San Diego later this month.

"The Final Battle" is kinda saddening.  Then again, Namco pulled the same thing with early Soul Calibur IV trailers, making it seem as though it would be the last game.

All in all, fighting game players have Mortal Kombat X and now this to look forward to presumably in 2015.

Video: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain E3 2014 Gameplay Demo

Your hype for The Phantom Pain should be through the roof after watching this gameplay footage.  This 30-minute clip was done behind closed doors, and Konami today has unleashed it on the public.

A definitive release date still isn’t known but it will be available on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.  Pre-orders are available.

Video: Grand Theft Auto V PS3 and PS4 Graphic Comparison

The folks over at Digital Foundry have become a go-to spot on the net for comparisons of games across different platforms, highlighting key differences and determining which version is better.  So with that, it should be no surprise that this video is close to 1 million views already.

When the next-gen GTA V trailer dropped last week, people were quick to break it down and determine if it truly was an improved game visually.  So with this, DF takes parts of the trailer and matches it up with footage from the PS3 version.  The results are actually pretty surprising.

Better lighting, more people and cars on the streets, more wildlife and elements in previously barren spots, and overall just a better looking game.

Rockstar might be trying to make a pretty good case for people to buy the game again if they’re on next-gen consoles now.  It drops later this year in the Fall and pre-orders are now available.

In other GTA V news, the “I’m Not a Hipster” update dropped today.

Scoop that the next time you’re on your PS3/Xbox 360.

Video: Grand Theft Auto V announced for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC + E3 Day 0 Runthrough

At long last, Rockstar has answered fan demand by teasing last year’s mega release GTA V on the new consoles, as well as the long awaited PC release.  The cool thing of course is that your GTA Online progress carries over.  This is just one more reason for folks to get onboard and ditch their last gen console.

Yesterday was a big day, with tons of new games and gameplay footage seen via Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, and Sony’s conferences at E3.

Microsoft releases PC drivers for Xbox One controller

#BeastMode is an understatement for describing Microsoft in these weeks leading up to E3.  They added another to the long list of good things with the ability to use your Xbox One controller on Windows 7 and Windows 8 PCs/devices.

Video: Mortal Kombat X Official Announce Trailer

After teasing for days, MK co-creator Ed Boon let loose the official announcement trailer for the 10th Mortal Kombat.  So now we know why he mentioned Wiz Khalifa on Twitter, who supplied the song for the trailer.

Amazon had the game listed for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One before the listing was taken down.  It’s sure to go back up now.

Video: Quantum Break Gameplay Footage

Microsoft (or I should say Phil Spencer) wasn’t lying when he said they would have even more stuff to reveal before E3 kicked off in a couple of weeks.  The Xbox One-exclusive Quantum Break has been as much of a mystery as Sunset Overdrive was up until recently, but now we get just a taste of what’s to come.

It must be said that the game won’t have any presence at E3 and has been sadly delayed until 2015.  They’re looking to pour out details at Gamescom in August, but until then this brief reveal trailer will have to hold folks down.

Conan plays Watch Dogs in new ‘Clueless Gamer’ segment

What a great way to see new Watch_Dogs footage by watching Conan cluelessly trying to figure things out while playing.  It definitely worked for me.

The game’s hype is at its peak in advance of next week’s retail release.  The launch trailer was also released yesterday.

Video: Arkham Knight Gameplay: “Evening The Odds”

Barely constitutes as a true gameplay video, but this is the latest bit of media to come from the upcoming Rocksteady-developed Batman game.

Also cool seeing the Batmobile in motion, as well as glimpses of the key villain in the game: the Arkham Knight himself.
