These were the best trailers of E3 2014

Jun 16 // Brett Makedonski
[embed]276289:54359:0[/embed] Dead Island 2 has followed in its predecessor's footsteps with a highly memorable trailer, albeit with a severely different tone. Many would argue that the caliber of Dead Island's cinematic trailer outshone the actual game. Only time will tell what the legacy of this one is. [embed]276647:54463:0[/embed] Cuphead took a lot of people by surprise when its trailer was showed on Monday morning. "What the hell is this, and why do I want it now?," many probably correctly thought. It's gorgeous, it's wacky, and it doesn't look like else out there. It's Cuphead. [embed]276284:54356:0[/embed] Maybe the most intriguing of all E3 trailers was the one for From Software's Bloodborne. It's dark and creepy, and because it's From Software, we can expect it's good stuff. While a fine trailer in its own right, it didn't do anything to let us know how Bloodborne plays. Luckily, Dale was around to do that for us. [embed]276260:54338:0[/embed] If this trailer is any indication, Far Cry 4 will thrive partially because of a strong and insanely evil villain. That was part of the charm of Far Cry 3, and it wouldn't be particularly surprising if Ubisoft went that route again. However, it probably would be particularly enjoyable. This trailer showed Pagan Min doing what he does best, and it made for fine entertainment. [embed]276341:54380:0[/embed] Nintendo had a few interesting things to show at its E3 Digital Event. One of the definite standouts was Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, which was inspired by levels from Super Mario 3D World. That's right, an entire game based on those intermission-style sections. No running, no jumping, just puzzle-solving and collectible-collecting. And it looks truly wonderful. [embed]276310:54368:0[/embed] Sony capped off its press conference with the reveal of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. Its accompanying trailer did exactly what trailers are supposed to do -- get people excited for the game. One more adventure, you say? Sure, we'll happily go along with you, Drake. [embed]276220:54318:0[/embed] Lara Croft had a rough time in Tomb Raider. It's not surprising that she needs some psychiatric care to work through her trauma. Conveniently for us, that directly translates to getting a glimpse at our next experience with her in Rise of the Tomb Raider. [embed]276229:54296:0[/embed] What can you say about this trailer for Dead Rising 3's DLC? It was Capcom having fun with things, and that alone is worthy of a mention. Oh yeah, and apparently the DLC was pretty good, too. [embed]276207:54293:0[/embed] Sunset Overdrive made good use of its time in the limelight. Its trailer managed to act as an FAQ of sorts, show off some gameplay, and even make fun of conventional game mechanics. It's hard to imagine someone watching this and not thinking that all of that bouncing and sliding around looks really fun. [embed]276261:54343:0[/embed] Valiant Hearts kind of went the other way with its E3 trailer. Rather than get the crowd all excited, it brought the room down. Armed with a puppy and a voiceover, Valiant Hearts made sure everyone knows that this one's going to be a real tear-jerker. [embed]276297:54362:0[/embed] The world's a big place. The trailer for Hello Games' No Man's Sky makes sure to point that out. Starting in a dinosaur-laden swampland, it's not long before it jettisons off into space. It really drives home that No Man's Sky is a game of infinite exploration and endless possibilities. [embed]276462:54426:0[/embed] We said that these trailers are in no particular order, but that was a half lie. The truth is, we saved the best for last -- Metal Gear Solid V. Anything said here won't do it justice, so just watch it yourself.

Review: Dead Rising 3: Super Ultra Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX + α

Jun 09 // Chris Carter
Dead Rising 3: Super Ultra Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX + α (Xbox One)Developer: Capcom VancouverPublisher: Microsoft StudiosRelease Date: June 9, 2014MSRP: $9.99 Like the Untold Stories DLC series, Super Ultra is its own completely unique option on the main menu screen -- it has no bearing on your main story file. It even has its own "boot up" screen, filled with a clever use of "check RAM" arcade screens and a "Winners Get Chipped" icon -- a take on the old-school "Winners Don't Use Drugs" slogan. Heck, the old school Capcom chime even plays for good measure. So what is Super Ultra? Well, it's a series of arcade-like battles with multiple objectives, closely resembling an old-school beat-'em-up. Four of the major characters from the Dead Rising franchise return as playable characters: Frank West, Chuck Greene, Nick Ramos, and Annie Greene. All of these characters have a unique weapon (such as a chainsaw or an electric hammer), special attacks, and unique super abilities. In that sense, all of the characters control differently, and the extra outfits really bring in the fanservice as well as new types of play control. Outfits range from Captain Commando, Mike Haggar, Chun-Li, Ryu, Mega Man X's Sigma, Akuma, Felicia, and even obscure references like Dino Crisis and Rival Schools. Each character has their generic appearance from their Dead Rising game as well as five costumes -- so there's a lot of choices. [embed]276229:54296:0[/embed] All of the action takes place in four "districts" -- modeled after the main areas from the core game (Ingleton, Central City, Sunset Hills, and South Almuda). Each area consists of multiple rounds (and bonus rounds), with different objectives and tasks. Sometimes it's as simple as "kill [x] amount of zombies," but more often than not you'll have to dispatch of specific targets, fight bosses, or even race from one area to the next. Said zones aren't just modeled after the original game's muted color palette -- all of them have been re-imagined with flashy neon imagery, as well as extras like billboards for various Capcom games. The power-ups and giant explosions also help give a little more life to the world of Dead Rising 3, and show off the game in a brand new light. The power-ups are also insanely detailed, like the defensive pickup that adds Ghouls N' Ghosts Arthur armor, or the various super attacks like Strider's Ouroboros machines. Just about every major Capcom property is represented here, from Power Stone to Mega Man, to the classic Yashichi power-up. You can also roam around and find (unplayable) classic Capcom arcade cabinets as extras. My major complaint however is that the base characters don't gel perfectly with the new high-paced playstyle of the DLC. The engine is still fundamentally the same even with the power-ups in tow, and often times, it can take forever to get from one area to the next while running on foot. It's odd, because once you hit a pack of enemies things get back on pace. Sadly, matchmaking seems to be very slow today, and I had to wait over 10 minutes to get in any matches. I highly suggest playing with others, but the good news is even solo play is fun, and absolutely doable. Each round lasts roughly five minutes or so, and every zone will take roughly 30 minutes to complete. Costumes are unlocked by way of the Zenny currency (ha!), which allows you to buy roughly one costume per completed zone. There's also a score attack aspect involved, as well as leaderboard support and a competitive element for each player to top one another within a game. Capcom clearly had a lot of fun designing this DLC, as even the title pokes fun at its tendencies and strategies throughout the years. While it's clear that the company has let more than a few of fans down over the years, every so often it has been known to surprise people, and this is one of those occasions.

Review: Dead Rising 3: The Last Agent

Mar 18 // Chris Carter
Dead Rising 3: The Last Agent (Xbox One)Developer: Capcom VancouverPublisher: Microsoft StudiosRelease Date: March 18, 2014MSRP: $9.99 Angel is the only character worth a damn that's been presented in the Season Pass offerings so far, and sadly, the ZDC's Brad Park is another swing and a miss. As a "good guy" stuck in the middle of the outbreak in Los Perdidos, Brad actually runs into Nick at the beginning of the DLC, tying his story into the main one in a similar vein as Angel. It all goes downhill from here, as he basically has no personality and neither do his missions. Rather than immediately follow-up with some revelatory moment that would draw us more into the world of Dead Rising 3, Brad reports to a local hospital, where he proceeds to run errands for a doctor named Cora. You'll spend the next hour driving around town finding Zombrex and fighting carbon-copy biker enemies from the core game. To make matters worse, one of Brad's "unique" mission types (a theme of each DLC) is to rescue survivors, just like Nick does in the story. Yeah it makes sense since he's there to help as the ZDC, but it just comes off as an even lazier attempt to copy and paste elements into a piece of paid DLC. [embed]272118:53027:0[/embed] It also doesn't help that this mission inexplicably has more blocked off areas than any other piece of content, forcing players to drive around the long way to locate quest objectives. It really feels like Capcom ran out of their budget right around the time that The Last Agent was put into production. As always though, it's still fun to run around and blast zombies into oblivion, and the new item types help make that more tempting. Thankfully there are six new weapon types to find (the highlight of which is a robotic-like arm) and a new vehicle, all of which are incorporated into Nicks' story -- so if you already bought the Season Pass (my condolences), at least you're getting something for your troubles. The weapons themselves are mostly guns, too, and are probably the strongest item pack yet. Considering that Dead Rising 3 was one of my favorite games of last year, this Season Pass collection is a real shame. Capcom cut corners at nearly every turn, and instead of putting up all four stories as one big expansion, the company charged for them individually. Save your money and just play the core game instead, or wait for a Game of the Year edition.

Stick a fork in this Season Pass
So far we've had three pieces of underwhelming Dead Rising 3 DLC, in the form of Operation Broken Eagle, Fallen Angel, and Chaos Rising. That's three parts of the four-part Season Pass, and now all that's left is The Last Agent. It's a shame Capcom decided to charge money for these.

This Dead Rising 3 DLC trailer is just too badass


Chaos is rising
Feb 25
// Brett Makedonski
If this trailer were to be believed, Dead Rising 3's new DLC Chaos Rising is pretty darn cool. I mean, look at all the leather, and motorcycles, and angry dudes in jail. That's practically the trifecta of cool stuff. However, Chris "Smash Mouth" Carter says it's not all that great. Maybe he just hates leather, and motorcycles, and dudes in jail.

Review: Dead Rising 3: Chaos Rising

Feb 25 // Chris Carter
Dead Rising 3: Chaos Rising (Xbox One)Developer: Capcom VancouverPublisher: Microsoft StudiosRelease Date: February 25, 2014MSRP: $9.99 Our new "hero" starts off the DLC in jail, with the opportunity to escape due to the...you know... that giant zombie apocalypse that's happening. I use the term hero lightly, as Hunter is your standard degenerate biker gang member, and although Capcom could have gone somewhere with him to really show what he was made of -- they didn't. That concept spills over to the story, because again -- this is the same exact city as the main game, so you've already seen every area before, including the jail. This feeling of deja vu continues throughout, and since the tale clocks in at under two hours like the rest, you never really get any sort of character development, nor do you get an interesting story in general. Basically, Hunter goes back to his old gang, finds out "things have changed" with a new leader, and starts to gather up resources to take it back. That's literally it. You can do a few side missions along the way like "collect special whiskey for XP" and "destroy emergency phones," but they're just as hollow as the previous extra objectives, since they're basically soulless carbon copies. [embed]271047:52738:0[/embed] Thankfully this scenario sets up some more interesting gameplay choices in comparison to the first two DLCs, since his gang will periodically pop up around the map for a skirmish or two. Having consistent human opponents that fit into the story is a cool concept, and they take it a bit further with some boss battles. Yep, that's right -- Chaos Rising actually has boss battles, which the other DLCs completely lacked. They're presented in the form of gang rivals, all of which have their own unique weapon to steal. The final boss fight in particular is one of the more interesting battles in the entire game, and I would have loved to have seen these implemented in the first two campaigns. The new vehicles are also great, as Hunter's trademark steamroller is ready and rarin' to go, as is another fun ride: a motorcycle with moving sawblades at the front that can also shoot blade projectiles. I spent quite a while with these things just running around slicing up zombies -- and the good news is that they're unlocked in the core game, too. Ultimately though, Hunter functions just like any other character, and there's nothing special about him -- you just hijack Nick's stats and experience like always. If Hunter were different in some way, such as extra proficiency riding motorcycles, he would inherently be a more compelling character to play as. The problem with Chaos Rising is that while it offers up something unique compared to the other two DLCs, it suffers from a weak, unengaging lead character and uninteresting sidequests. What Capcom should have done with these add-ons is meld all these ideas together for a massive single campaign for $10. As it stands after three middling parts, I can firmly say that spending the full $30 for the Season Pass is a waste.

Review: Dead Rising 3: Fallen Angel

Feb 11 // Chris Carter
Dead Rising 3: Fallen Angel (Xbox One)Developer: Capcom VancouverPublisher: Microsoft StudiosRelease Date: February 11, 2014MSRP: $9.99 This time around you'll play as Angel -- a member of the "Illegals Organization" that's essentially the resistance for all of the oppressive forces that take root after the zombie infection spreads. They defy the government surveillance programs put forth in Los Perdidos and live underground, creating safe zones and helping the lost and the damned. In short, they're more sympathetic and nuanced than playing as the military.Angel is a caring individual who legitimately wants to help others, and she's also the first playable female in the franchise. While she may not win any awards for "best new character," she's infinitely more interesting than Adam Kane, as we see right away that she's been directly affected by the outbreak, and suffers from alcoholism (she also ties in the main story). We often see a glimpse of the survivors when playing as Frank, Chuck, and Nick respectively in the first three Dead Rising games, but we never really get the full picture -- so it's nice to see things from their side. Just like before, this episode is roughly an hour long, providing fairly linear missions with a tight-knit narrative. As Angel, you'll basically need to locate more survivors, save them from executions, locate new bases of operations, and shut down anyone who gets in your way. It's standard stuff, and although you have a partner in crime to share most of the missions with (an NPC named Doug), you'll mostly feel like you're going through the motions, without any real sense of immediacy or dread. The structure is mostly improved though, as the checkpoints do a better job of guiding you throughout the city so you won't get lost or frustrated with lengthy drives. Although the city is the exact same, the DLC leads you to a few locations that you otherwise may have never found, or bothered to look for, such as sewers and the like. Again, it's not a reason to celebrate, but it's an improvement. Fallen Angel still ties into main game's progression gameplay wise, which means Angel shares the same level, stats, and collectible status as Nick and Adam. There are a few unique extras on offer like the chance to burn propaganda posters and destroy security cameras, but it's nothing new or exciting. New weapons are in tow, most notably dual machine guns that allow you to relive your innermost John Woo fantasies, and a cool-looking pulse gun, which is a combo weapon. As always, all of the DLC weapons unlock for use in any mode by way of the weapons locker.Fallen Angel is a much better effort than Broken Eagle, but the Lost Chapter DLC saga still isn't quite there, and certainly hasn't justified the Season Pass cost yet. It needs a lot more pizzazz to really rise to the bar that the core game set, and I hope Capcom follows through with the remaining two chapters.

Review: Dead Rising 3: Operation Broken Eagle

Jan 24 // Chris Carter
Dead Rising 3: Operation Broken Eagle (Xbox One)Developer: Capcom VancouverPublisher: Microsoft StudiosRelease Date: January 21, 2014MSRP: $9.99 Under the guise of the "Untold Stories of Los Perdidos" Dead Rising 3 is set to obtain four DLC packs, all set in the same area as the core game, with four new characters and tales to tell. The entire affair is framed by way of a tech expert watching all of the characters big brother style, which is a cool way to link all the narratives together. Sadly, it kind of falls apart from there. Operation Broken Eagle, the first add-on, starts off in an almost laughable fashion -- with a generic spec-ops soldier and his crew crash landing from a helicopter after a few "'Merica!" yells. The "hero" of the tale is Adam Kane (he's been in wars, you know), a character so forgettable that I actually forgot his name multiple times throughout the "rescue the president" story. Capcom had the opportunity to go all out and parody the likes of Stallone or Schwarzenegger for some big laughs while keeping in the spirit of the franchise, but they didn't. [embed]269261:52277:0[/embed] Instead, you're going to get a poorly told story (which can be played on Normal or Nightmare mode) on the exact same Los Perdidos map you've played before. You'll even share your character level with your progress in the main game, as well as collectibles. While this may seem like a good way to tie all of the content together, it also serves to eliminate any unique qualities that Broken Eagle might have, effectively rendering it pointless in many ways. It also makes the DLC feel rushed and shoved out the door.It doesn't help then that the story is linear, taking order after order from your superior officer as you trek across the map and grab dog tags, as well as embark on boring fetch quests. Broken Eagle gives you two unique scenarios -- taking out "illegal" bases (by smoking them out), and collecting tags -- that's it. There's a huge missed opportunity here with the dog tags, as they easily could have been the "psycho" fights of this particular DLC. With some added cheese factor, it would have been cool to see Kane's fallen comrades as boss fights with a mini-cutscene reminiscing on a past mission, following by a series of intense battles. But that's not what happens here, as you'll basically just chug along mission after mission for roughly an hour (yep, an hour -- two if you're lucky). The good news is this is still Dead Rising 3, with the same great gameplay you know and love, despite the terrible presentation of the DLC. Kane ostensibly functions in the exact same manner as Nick, and at the end of the day, it's still good fun to mow down (and run from) hundreds of on-screen zombies at once. If you really want more Dead Rising 3 at all costs, it might be worth seeing how the other three stories pan out. Sadly, there are no worthwhile extras to entice you to get Broken Eagle in particular. For starters, there is no multiplayer allowed within the DLC -- period. Capcom says this is because they want to isolate the stories as a single-player experience, but after playing the first offering, my response would be "what story?" Thankfully, there are five new weapons and a vehicle (which can be used in the core game), with the standout of course being the minigun, which should please a few of the die-hard fans out there who want more sandbox goodies.As it stands, there is literally no reason to get Broken Eagle. It's criminally short, you can't enjoy it with a friend, there are no real benefits if your character is maxed out from already playing the core game, and it doesn't add to the overarching lore in any meaningful way. Hopefully the other Season Pass offerings will be an improvement, since we still have three to go.
Dead Rising 3 DLC review photo
Mission failed
Dead Rising 3 was a very welcome surprise. It was not only my favorite launch game between the Xbox One and PS4, but it was a killer co-op experience, and had a lot more personality than I thought it would based on early trailers. Leave it to DLC to not only take out multiplayer, but jettison some of that personality as well.
