Kingdom Under Fire II gets lengthy PS4 gameplay trailer

Kingdom Under Fire II, announced six years ago as a 360 game, is still still alive and feeling even more still alive with a proper PlayStation Blog post talking about the PS4 version, and a large scale raid video with scorpions, knights, guns, flamethrowers, and tits with super low nipples (3:15).

Ubisoft announces new The Settlers game, says nothing about it

The Settlers is quite the long-running videogame franchise; the first title in the series was released in 1993. More than 20 years later, it's still going, as Ubisoft just revealed The Settlers - Kingdoms of Anteria. Al...

Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution 2 announced as a mobile exclusive

Civilization Revolution was an interesting thing. As it was pared down to function well on consoles, handhelds, and eventually mobile devices, many diehards considered it dumbed down from the roots of the series. Still, it so...

I couldn't believe the size of Dragon Age: Inquisition's world
by Brett Makedonski

Fantasy games have some of my favorite settings in all of videogames. Forests, mountains, chasms, rivers -- they all have a serenity and majesty about them that wonderfully adds to the sense of scale. It shouldn't surprise me that Dragon Age: Inquisition is poised to be incredibly huge and make nice use of the locations. At the beginning of a 30-minute presentation, I couldn't help but be amazed anyway.

The first thing I noticed in the hands-off demo was simply how big everything was. The open area that we started in seemed to stretch on forever -- mountains book-ending the sides, with a ton of detail in between, thanks to the use of the Frostbite 3 engine. Inquisition's executive producer made sure to make a point that everything we could see could be traveled to.

I wasn't out of my mind for thinking that it looked big. That area alone was larger than the entire play space of Dragon Age: Origins. Inquisition will be the biggest Dragon Age game to date. But, all that area isn't going to waste. Every location in Inquisition is part of a larger story.

NIS takes us to an island paradise, battles us, then travels back in time

NIS was a bit of a hidden treasure at E3. The publisher shared a booth with Atlus and it took me stopping and actually looking at what was on display at the demo station to put two and two together. The search was well worth it because I was rewarded with a closer look at three upcoming titles: Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited, and Natural Doctrine.

Nintendo reveals new IP for 3DS titled Code Name: STEAM
by Kyle MacGregor

Nintendo tipped its hand this evening at E3, revealing a new intellectual property called Code Name: STEAM for 3DS.

A turn-based strategy RPG hybrid with third-person shooter elements, the story follows an elite task force created by Abraham Lincoln to fend off an alien invasion. Yes, really. The upcoming title is said to take inspiration from the work of author H. P. Lovecraft and comic artists such as Jack Kirby and Bruce Timm.

Code Name: STEAM is set in London and features a steampunk aesthetic, complete with airships and all. The perspective brings the vantage point down to the actual units, which Nintendo hopes will help take away the apprehension people have about strategy titles and bring the genre to a wider audience.

It is being developed by Intelligent Systems, the studio behind Advance Wars and Fire Emblem, with assistance from other first-party teams. The producer is none other than Hitoshi Yamagami, overseer of RPG projects at Nintendo and manager of the company's SPD Group 2.

Code Name: STEAM will release for Nintendo 3DS in 2015.

Make like the Goo and absorb these Grey Goo screens

One of the major aspects of Grey Goo that's likely to set it apart from other real-time strategy games is the inclusion of the titular Goo -- a race of nanites that can form into and break off from an amorphous blob. Whe...

Preview: Sid Meierís Civilization: Beyond Earth
by Dale North

I tried to help settlers colonize a new planet (Earth becomes uninhabitable after we screw it up in a big way) in our first hands-on with a pre-alpha build of the upcoming game Civilization: Beyond Earth early last week. I was briefed on how to get around, dig into the new tech tree, and potentially deal with arriving factions, but I kind of glossed over all of that in hopes of taking down a big ol’ Siege Worm or two.

Worms Battlegrounds to bring annelid anarchy to PS4 and Xbox One on June 3
