The last in the Arkham series, Batman: Arkham Knight is coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC later this year with developer Rocksteady Studios taking back the reigns after Warner Bros Montreal had a go with Arkham Origins last year. The story takes place one year after the events of Arkham City with the Joker still presumed dead. From the speech in the trailer, it sounds like Scarecrow will be headlining the villains this time.
The latest trailer for The Order: 1886, coming to the PlayStation 4, gives us a solid look at actual gameplay, thought it’s mostly a highlights real of some QTEs and a look at one of the weapons. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
We’re only 8 days away from the release of Thief on February 25th. Here you can watch a complete playthrough of the game’s first mission, although this is just one of the many ways to complete the task at hand.
The team behind Dead Island, Techland, turns up the speed with Dying Light, infusing Mirror’s Edge with Left 4 Dead. This trailer shows us how the game looks running on the PlayStation 4 as well as give us a chance to see the multiple types of zombies you’ll come across. Dying Light will be out later this year on PC, PS3, PS4, 360, and Xbox One.
This game is definitely going on my list for games to look out for in 2014. The creators of Left 4 Dead are taking the 4-player co-op formula and pitting them against a fifth player who controls a monstrous beast that evolves and grows more powerful the longer the game lasts. Monster Hunter is a series that comes to mind when I think about this game. Look for Evolve later this year when it comes to PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
It’s exactly what it sounds like. Here we have Mega Man creator, Keiji Inafune, playing an early build of his new game Mighty No. 9. According to the youtube notes attached to the video, this was from Inafune’s speech at the 2014 D.I.C.E. Awards.

Ubisoft’s Child of Light, a traditional JRPG-styled game using the UbiArt Framework (from Rayman Origins / Legends), is coming to PC/PS3/PS4/XBOX 360/XBOX ONE/Wii U(!) on April 30th through their respective download services (i.e. Xbox Live, PSN, Steam, etc.).
The latest trailer for upcoming steal-action game, Thief, shows everything you need to know before stepping out into the shadows. The game releases for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on February 25th.
Airtight Games and Square Enix announced today that Murdered: Soul Suspect, an upcoming ‘ghost detective’ action-adventure game, will be coming out for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in June of this year. The video posted above actually came out yesterday, but only discussed an Xbox One version. Nothing was confirmed yet on a PS4 version until today.
Typically when you think of February, your mind goes to chocolates, flowers, and other lovey-dovey things. So we thought we’d celebrate this sappy month by scaring the bejesus out of you with Outlast on PS4.
We also have some great single-player PS3 experiences, including Metro: Last Light, a first-person shooter with an interesting take on morality, and Remember Me, a third-person action adventure where you’ll take down an evil corporation by beating lots of people up with your own unique combos and messing with people’s memories. If you have a significant other, you might be able to rope him or her into some bank-robbing action with Payday 2 on PS3. After all, everyone likes stealing stuff. I mean, uh… nevermind.
Finally, two PS Vita titles are joining the Instant Game Collection: Street Fighter X Tekken and ModNation Racers: Road Trip. Both include functionality with their respective PS3 versions. Fight against your friends in Street Fighter X Tekken no matter what platform they have, or download your previously made PS3 creations and use them in ModNation Racers: Road Trip.
We had already reported earlier this month that Outlast would be a part of this next month’s PS+ games, which I’m not looking forward to experiencing, but definitely going to be playing. I’m also looking forward to getting my hands on the 3 PS3 titles coming. All of them are games I had wanted to try out last year, but never got around to. I actually already own to 2 Vita games announced, but they’re both great and I recommend them for anyone who has a chance to play them. This is going to be another great month for PlayStation owners.

Ubisoft has been keeping tight-lipped about the upcoming Tom Clancy’s The Division, but they definitely aren’t shying away from letting us look at the game. It’s definitely still a gorgeous piece of work. The last I’ve seen from the game was it’s announcement at last year’s E3, but it’s nice to know it’s still going strong behind closed doors. Still no release date, but hopefully we’ll see in later this year. Until then, proceed to drool over the latest batch of screenshots. Continue reading

The game is also headed to PS4, though no set date has been announced. Continue reading
Outlast developer, Red Barrels, let it slip on their Facebook page that their game will be the next free game for PS4 through PlayStation Plus in February. I’m already stocking up on fresh underwear. I’ll probably need even more when it comes out.
Because, why not? Announced today, Call of Duty: Ghosts will be getting it’s first round of downloadable maps labeled “Onslaught” brings three new multiplayer maps, a new extinction map, and two new weapons. The most interesting of these things being the ability to play as Michael Myers from the Halloween movies in the “Fog” map. As out of place as this might seem, the Call of Duty franchise has always gone a little crazy when it comes to DLC maps, starting with the zombie mode maps from Black Ops. Continue reading

occasionally rarely, but Ubisoft has announced they will be bumping the release date of Rayman Legends on PS4 and XBOX ONE up to February 18th. That a whole 10 days ahead of its original February 28th release date! Amazing isn’t it? Continue reading
Though nothing has been officially announced through Bethesda or any other official outlet, it’s worth noting that for a brief part of yesterday, the Bethesda website had listed Skyrim as coming to PS4 and Xbox ONE. This was later taken down after news spread across other video game sites throughout the day. This could have been a mistake from someone working on the site, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
Aside from everything we touched on earlier, here’s a quick recap with the developers on everything you need to know about Alien: Isolation
Though we’ve technically known about it for months, Sega and The Creative Assembly (the team behind the Total War series) have finally lifted the veil off Alien: Isolation, a new FPS-survival horror game for PS4, Xbox One, and their respective current gen counterparts. After the absolute failure of Aliens: Colonial Marines, Creative Assembly has quite a lot riding on this title to bring this franchise back into good standings. The first thing you’ll notice when looking at the title for Isolation is that this is an “Alien” title, not “Aliens”. Continue reading
