Every week, a landslide of video game trailers hit the Internet, hyping up the games that have just been released, the games that are about to be released and even the games that don’t have release dates. It can be a bit overwhelming to keep up with all of them, which is why we’ve decided to collect our favorites into a single post.
Following the lukewarm reaction to The Order: 1886, Sony’s other big PlayStation 4 exclusive has even more to prove than before. I will say, having played Bloodborne a few times, I got the impression that this is a complete game, but definitely caters to core gamers and fans of the Dark Souls series; not quite as broad a spectrum as a third-person shooter like The Order.
Screamride wasn’t even on my radar until my recently, but now that I know this Xbox One exclusive from the same team that developed the RollerCoaster Tycoon series, I’m completely on board. Decent simulation games have become upsettingly hard to find in recent years, especially on console — hopefully Screamride can fix that.
Dissidia Final Fantasy
The Final Fantasy fighting game is coming to arcades! …in Japan. Yeah, so none of us are probably ever going to have a chance to play this version of the well-received fighter, but the trailer is pretty rad.
Terraria was one of the first Minecraft-likes to draw both attention and critical acclaim. Calling it 2D Minecraft is reductive though, especially now that this standalone spin-off is on the way.
Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas
A remastered version of one of the best iOS action RPGs is coming to Steam next month. If you never gave Oceanhorn a shot on your mobile device, all you really need to know is that it was heavily inspired by Wind Waker, the best Zelda game ever made.
This Is the Police (Kickstarter)
Our Kickstarter pick of the week is a strategy game starring Jon St. John, a.k.a. the voice of Duke Nukem. It looks really interesting, and with only 5 more days in the campaign and about $5,000 left to collect, I thought it deserved a mention.
