Just about everything that has come from the Sunset Overdrive camp has been really impressive, so when a new trailer was shown at Gamescom it was really no surprise that it kept the momentum going.
In this video we are introduced to a former scientist of FizzCo names Floyd, who gives us a hilarious narration about everything that has happened since FizzCo screwed everything up, how he could have stopped it if they didn’t fire him, and well wishes for you during the apocalypse. Check out the new trailer below. [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFrpMdDPnEY#t=24′%5D
Sunset Overdrive is being developed by Insomniac Games exclusively for the Xbox One and is set to be released on October 31st.
True to their word, Remedy Entertainment has revealed an 8-minute gameplay video featuring their upcoming third-person shooter Quantum Break. These are the people responsible for 2010’s fantastic Alan Wake, and judging from this gameplay footage it’s easy to see a lot of inspiration was taken from that game.
The major difference in Quantum Break compared to Alan Wake, however, as that time is able to be controlled. As the protagonist makes his way through waves of armed foes, he is able to stop time and move position to confuse enemies. The production values and graphics look absolutely phenomenal and is easily one of my most anticipated Xbox One exclusives for next year. Check out the footage below.

Quantum Break is being developed by Remedy Entertainment for the Xbox One with an expected release sometime in 2015.
The Xbox One-exclusive fighting game, Killer Instinct, is set to make its retail debut with Killer Instinct: Combo Breaker Pack.
The pack will retail for $20 and feature 8 fighters that are currently available in the game: Fulgore, Glacius, Jago, Orchid, Sabrewulf, Sadira, Spinal and Thunder. However, the game will also come with a download code for TJ Combo, who is a new fighter that will be available in the second season of Killer Instinct.
This is a really sweet value, because the free-to-play version of the game only features one character and asks you to spend an additional $5 on each other character you with to play as. If you’ve tried the game out and would like a more fully-featured experience at a better price, this might be the perfect time.
Killer Instinct: Combo Breaker Pack will be released on September 23rd for the Xbox One.
The PC slice ’em up game Shadow Warrior came out last year and provided mild amounts of entertainment for all parties involved, but now we know exactly when that same games (with some extras) will be coming to consoles. Developer Devolver Digital has revealed that Shadow Warrior will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 23rd.
As mentioned previously, the console versions of Shadow Warrior will have a few new bells and whistles; including the Arena mode, more campaign content and all-new weapons.
Although a price hasn’t officially been revealed, Devolver Digital has gone on record saying that they are aiming for a $39.99 price tag.
Warner Bros. Interactive has revealed that Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor has moved up a week, making it yet another game that is sneaking out of the over-crowded month of October.
The game was originally set to release on October 7th, but now it is hitting North America on September 30th. The game will then be released on PC and Steam on October 2nd.
WB claims that the release was moved up due to fans excitement, but I think it’s pretty obvious that October 7th was simply too crowded of a release date. The date still hols NBA 2k15, DriveClub and Alien: Isolation, with Dragon Age: Inquisition recently being pushed back to November from its original October 7th release date.
Play Dance Central a lot? Me neither! Still, the upcoming Xbox One download-only Kinect game has had some more information released regarding its price and content.
According to Harmonix, the game will ship with 10 songs for $10, but you can add many more songs through DLC that will cost $1.99 each. It’s reported that there will be around 50 additional songs available for download.
If you’re wondering what 10 songs the game will be launching with (and the first 5 DLC songs to be released), then scroll down below and be greeted with the very crappy song list!

Gearbox Software, the developer responsible for the critically-acclaimed Borderlands series, has just revealed a brand new IP they are working on called Battleborn. The dev made the announcement in the latest issue of Game Informer, where they described the game as a first person battle arena.
Battleborn will blend several different genres, according to Gearbox, making it a highly-stylized FPS that will have co-op. The game will also reportedly have a large amount of characters to play as.
Battleborn is being developed for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, though Gearbox notes that a PC version will also be coming somewhere down the line.
