Death Stranding Key Poster Released

If you people are well aware of who Hideo Kojima is, then you must also know that this fellow is a master of developing mind-bending video games that creates all sorts of buzzes and makes history. He's intending to do that once more with his forthcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive release Death Stranding from his very own Kojima Productions. He started messing with our minds from back in 2016 and now he has taken a step further by releasing a wickedly bizarre trailer.

Well, just as soon as the trailer dropped and everyone was just recovering from having their mind-blown by the pure chaotic wickedness, Hideo Kojima took his personal Twitter account to reveal the new key visual art for the game.



Playing the role of the protagonist of Death Stranding called Sam, actor Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead) is on the primary focal point of the two posters. Both of these posters are designed in a movie-like fashion and while there are similarities in them, they are still apart. Like the first one have a close focus on Sam and the baby but the second one, despite picking the same frame has set in slight distance.

Reedus’ character is looking at the distance and probably observing the gigantic alien creatures that have taken two of his team-mates moments ago and he is holding a pod which one of his fallen colleagues dropped moments before he was taken. While the antenna-like flashlight gear attached to his back is fixed onto something, the baby he is holding inside the pod is looking straightly at the viewers.

I say, since maestro Kojima has introduced breaking of the fourth wall in video games, the baby looking straight to the viewer may be a nod to that. I mean, at this point every other eager fan is trying to piece out the clues to make some sort of sense out for this game as Hideo Kojima is playfully dropping them so often these days, anything could just mean everything!

Of course, everyone was happy that they are getting something new from Death Stranding after a long time but people were less happy after witnessing the 8-minutes of wickedness with everything that is involved to the world Kojima is creating. All we can say is that, something fascinating is coming our way and we don't even have a release date but the upcoming PlayStation Experience event may change that.

Death Stranding Teaser Trailer

Video game mastermind Hideo Kojima is mostly known as the creator of Metal Gear Solid, which he created during his time in Konami. Following his departure from the company, his fans were worried for sometime thinking if the maestro will ever return into the biz. He did with his very own Kojima Productions and announced of releasing a PlayStation 4 exclusive action video game titled Death Stranding last year.

Death Stranding – Teaser Trailer – TGA 2017

From the very moment players have known about the existence of Death Stranding, everyone was excited as hell as Kojima himself was involved in the project. Next, when the news of the involvement of Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water), Mads Mikkelsen (Doctor Strange, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead) to the game came out, people simply started losing their minds.

To throw the Kojima fan-base off their seats, Kojima Productions have dropped the new teaser trailer for Death Stranding. We would like to warn you in advance that the following footage is disturbing and can be extremely messy for your psyche (I already lost mine a little). So, viewers beware.




The clip starts with showing Norman Reedus’ character Sam stranded on a barren place where he wakes up with two other crews in a secret operation that clearly has gone wrong and one of them is half-stuck under a vehicle. Suddenly the gear on the shoulder of one of his fellow team members starts signaling like crazy for something on their way and as the crew panics, Sam suggests that they don't even breathe. Then we see an invisible creature approaching towards a body-bag near Sam while leaving lizard-like foot mark behind.

The body-bag seemingly melts into some black goo and the creature move towards Sam as he is bleeding. Then as his wounded teammate makes a noise, it quickly gets him and the other crew shot him to spare him a horrific fate. He throws a pod containing a baby to Sam before trying to shoot him but failed and then tried to stab himself to death. Left behind as the only witness of this carnage, Sam sees some extra terrestrial life-forms floating around him and all he sees is extinction all around.

This is so far we know about Death Stranding for now and there is no apparent release date announced yet. Even though people are familiar with the fact that master Kojima likes to play with our head every once in a while, the Death Stranding clip may have done that a little too much considering this is just a teaser trailer. So, God knows what else is up ahead!

Shadow of the Colossus PlayStation 4 Release Date

Paris Games Week has been bringing much joyous news from their recent events and we are still up for some more. We are about to talk what we came to know about Shadow of the Colossus game that is headed to a PlayStation 4 release soon. Before we dive deep, let's be clear about something. This one is not a port or a remastered version of the original. This one is completely rebuilt on the original one developed by Team Ico.

Shadow of the Colossus PlayStation 4 Release Date

We do have a clip titled "Paris Games Week 2017 Trailer" straight out of the PlayStation press conference at Paris. It doesn't feature any action other than the beautiful world of the game from the captivating intro moments. See it for yourself.




It's been more than a decade the original Shadow of the Colossus came out in the market and that's twelve years to be accurate. Bluepoint Games have decided to re-create the same old experience of the all-time classic to the fans of the series and to a new generation who missed the greatness of the game first hand. Given their previous experience in reintroducing older games to a newer crowd, the work looks pretty faithful to the source material.

Shadow of the Colossus has yet to be the biggest project the studio has ever handled and by the footage from the trailer above, you can tell how much dedication and effort they have put into the game to keep the feel of the masterpiece alive. When people are going to play Shadow of the Colossus on PlayStation 4, they are gonna re-live those old glorious days. The PlayStation 4 Pro experience however will be off the sky with its 4K resolution running on 30 fps.

The game, Shadow of the Colossus will be launched on February 6, 2018 for PlayStation 4 and it will be charged for only $39.99. So wait up till you get your hand on the game and begin the quest of hunting the legendary Colossi as you take the role of the hero Wanda.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Teaser Trailer

At 2017 E3, we were surprised by Sony Interactive and Insomniac Games, with their announcement of the new upcoming Spider-Man game for PlayStation 4. There was even a gameplay trailer that gave us a brief idea of how it will turn out and then they left us hanging with so many questions in our mind and neither the developer not the publishers said a word about it. Finally, after a couple of months, maybe we're close to have something on it.

Recently, at Paris Games Week, Sony has dropped a brand-new teaser trailer for Marvel's Spider-Man at their PlayStation presentation. The teaser features few glimpses of the gameplay style but it was more of a peak into the plot the game is based on. So, we better not waste any more time and swing towards the clip.




The trailer starts with the footage of Spider-Man swinging into action before we get a sense of what is going on here. Here, Peter is a 23-year-old, who just got these amazing powers few years back and from since, he's been trying to be a protector of the city. He even managed to take down the Kingpin but then, threats of a gang named Inner Demons, led by Mister Negative emerges, who tries to ruthlessly take over the city. Worst part of the problem is that Mister Negative is the alter ego of New York's renowned philanthropist Martin Li, who runs the F.E.A.S.T. center.

Protector of the City

Peter is seen talking to his very close friend Mary Jane Watson, who will be more than just a pretty heroine in distress. At the end of the E3 gameplay trailer, we were left wondering if Miles Morales will just be a guest character or whether or not he will interact with Peter and we got our answer in this teaser. Peter introduces Miles to Aunt May as a volunteer who came to join F.E.A.S.T. shelters. Things are connecting together, aren't they?

RELATED: Marvel Video Games Will Create Original Stories

Now, let's be clear about one thing, which is; you are not in a Spider-Man story which is an adaptation from comic-books or from a movie. Insomniac Games took the project to create a completely new game universe for Spider-Man. Sure, Marvel’s Spider-Man took inspiration from the source material but they're up to taking a fresh, new dig at the character.

Hopefully, Insomniac Games will bring Spider-Man to PlayStation 4 sometime in 2018. As soon as they announce a definitive release date for the game, we will let you know about it.

The Last of Us Part II Premiere Trailer

A PlayStation 3 exclusive by developer Naughty Dog's creative director Neil Druckmann, The Last of Us literally took over the hive minds of the fans, who didn't only loved this new dig at action-adventure survival horror but also sort of developed a bond with Joel and Ellie. Needless to say that this masterpiece truly deserved a sequel and we got confirmation from the creators of the game for one too. But even that was almost a year ago.

The Last of Us Part II Paris Games Week 2017 Premiere Trailer

Now, what we're here to tell you about is that, The Last of Us Part II has kept you in the dark enough with any details of the game up until this point and now that wait is over as Naughty Dog has just released a premiere trailer for The Last of Us Part II. The trailer is down below for you to take a good look on what you are about to get into.




The footage that we see is derived from the Naughty Dog engine, running the game on PlayStation 4 Pro. Yeah, you could probably tell by the high-def quality.

We are almost pretty accustomed to the idea that The Last of Us is a story about Joel and Ellie. To some extent, it is. Probably, no one will argue on that. However, the developers decided to go on a different track with the trailer and they started with a bunch of new characters we never knew of.

We see two hooded person dragging a semi-unconscious young female character while it is heavily pouring, through a place in the woods where many are already left hanging. Now, this young girl looks a lot like Ellie but got a muscular physique. They dropped their torch on a burning car nearby and attempts to hang the girl. After setting her on a noose prop, the girl was about to be interrogated when another hostage is brought in.

Upon refusing to answer, they brutally broke the elbow of the hostage using a hammer. A character from shadows help these two get free of their captors by killing them with arrows, only to be faced by a horde of infected afterwards. The young female protagonist stands strong against the oncoming wave with the hammer in her hand now.

There is no apparent release date for The Last of Us Part II and we still got no sight of Joel either. Since, Ellie will be the primary character of the game that is not too surprising though. At this point, we know nothing about what the game is about to unleash upon us and how we would react then. So, till we get more to go on with this one, I say we wait.

So, we can assume that the month of October brings out the flavor of action-adventure stealth blended with survival horror theme. Before we get to it, let's take a quick glance at the October 2017 lineup for free games on PlayStation Plus.




We have told you this on August, reminded you again in September that the party game That’s You! is still up till October 23, 2017. That means, if you still haven't gave it a try and have fun with the company of your friends and family members, then you have less than one month to do it before it leaves PlayStation Plus. So, grab your TV, PlayStation 4 and Android/iOS phone or tablet devices and join the party.

  • Monster Jam Battlegrounds, PS3
  • Hustle Kings, PS3
  • Hue, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
  • Sky Force Anniversary, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4 & PS3)

Our first topic today is Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain, which is a continuation of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. The game is pretty good just like any other that belongs to the series and you already know it if you have played it whether or not you have a PS Plus membership. Even if you haven't, then this is a perfect opportunity to try this out or if you already have, then you can just re-live those old memories again.

We then move on to the second attraction of our list, which is the Amnesia: Collection. This one got both The Dark Descent and A Machine for Pigs in it. If you are not afraid of the dark, probably this collection is just for you to try on. So, get your socks on to get lost into the darkness of memory and a lot of mess.

Since October marks the one year anniversary for PlayStation VR, the PlayStation Store is in a celebrating mode and they are offering free games and exclusive discounts. To get more details on this, visit PS Store on October 10. Oh, and RIGS Mechanized Combat League is free for all PS Plus members to play till November 7. So, get that for yourself while you can before it is too late.




What else we got for you? Well, unless you are a fan of turn-based-strategy collectible card game we have nothing! On the contrary, if you do, then we may have something left just for you and one more thing; you have to have a PS Plus membership for this one too.

If you fulfill the above mentioned requirement, then we got Hand of the Gods Closed Beta from the creators who are responsible for games like SMITE and Paladins, which will be starting from October 17. You can also get a Plus Pack that will be available prior to November 14.

We've talked about so many good games that you can enjoy this upcoming month of October for free and now, let's talk about some discounts. Shall we? You can have a 30% off on both Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age & Titanfall 2: Ultimate Edition before October 3. Now don't tell me that wasn't sweet!
