Mario Kart 8 will dropping on gamers’ heads at the end of this month, and if you’re not hyped enough already then Nintendo is doing everything they can to change that. They have just released a new video that shows off one of the new items in the game: the Boomerang Flower.

‘Watch Dogs’ 101 Trailer Gives You The Complete Scoop

Watch Dogs has been one of the most highly-advertised and highly-anticipated games of the year, with several different snippets and trailers being released in the run-up to its May 27th release date. If you’re a newcomer to everything Watch Dogs, than this new trailer is for you.

In the 101 trailer, developer Ubisoft is showing off just about everything that has been covered on all previous trailers. Characters, gameplay, innovations and quirks are all contained within, so if you’ve got nine-and-a-half minutes I recommend you check out the trailer below. 

‘Sunset Overdrive’ Information Bonanza!

One of my most anticipated games for the Xbox One is Sunset Overdrive, developer Insomniac Games’  zany open-world shooter. When it was revealed at last year’s E3, everything I saw made it seem like a game that was oozing personality and creativity. I loved the art-style, the crazy looking characters, the vibrant colors and the fact that it was an open-world game in a great-looking city.

However, ever since then there has been little to no information about this Xbox One exclusive… UNTIL NOW!

You could say that the proverbial cat has been let out of the proverbial bag, as a bunch of new details have emerged that discuss many different aspects of the game.

The game takes place in a world controlled by FizzCo, who is a company that just released a new energy drink called Overcharge Delirium XT, which just so happens to have the minor side effect of transforming the user into a freakin’ mutant!

You control a janitor throughout all of this mayhem, who just so happened to be cleaning up the launch party for the new beverage when all of the crap hit the fan. Before long, all of the new mutants (now dubbed the OD’d) overrun the city and all hell breaks loose. That area of the city has been quarantined which results in you being trapped with all of said mutants.

The section of the city that is quarantined will contain day and night cycles that will always bring something new to the table. You will also encounter factions, who will range from being friendly to being down-right evil. Throughout the city random NPCs will give you sidequests, and your navigation of said city will consist of much wall-running, grinding and mantling as you take on the game’s crazy foes.

The following is a list of currently confirmed weapons in the game:

  • High Fidelity – fires ricocheting Vinyl discs
  • Roman Candle – Shoots fireworks that burn foes
  • TNTeddy Grenade Launcher – fires teddy bears strapped with explosives
  • Captain Ahab – Harpoon gun that fires slowly but can destroy crowds with energy drink
  • Freeze Gun – Turns OD’d into Christmas ornaments
  • AKFU*KYOUUP – No explanation required

The game also incorporates what is called the Style system, which gives you Amp upgrades and level-ups as you progress through the game. Amop upgrades allow you to enhance your weapons as well as adding status effects to melee attacks, and the game allows you to hold 8 weapons in all. Lastly, you will have complete control over character customization, making your character exactly the way you want to.

Sunset Overdrive does not have an official release date, but is expected to receive one at this year’s E3.

‘Watch Dogs’ Season Pass Trailer

‘Wolfenstein: The New Order’ Stealth Vs. Mayhem Trailer

Wolfenstein is gearing up for a glorious return in the form of Wolfenstein: The New Order, and the developers have just released a new gameplay trailer that documents two different styles of gameplay: Stealth and Mayhem.

Judging from the trailer, it seems you will have different ways of overcoming your adversaries by way of employing all out brute force or careful stealth. When I play the game I will definitely be going in like John Rambo, but I guess stealth is cool if you’re in a more relaxed mood.

Wolfenstein: The New Order releases on May 20th for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. Check out the Stealth Vs. Mayhem trailer below.
