Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass Teaser Trailer

Serious Sam is back on "A brutally bigger scale"! Croteam and Devolver Digital teased Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass!

Although developer studio Croteam released six new games in last seven years, they always face a common question; where is Serious Sam? This is a valid question because the franchise was both a commercial and critical success. For some time, the developers have been working with publisher Devolver Digital to release Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour and Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope. Seeing those projects succeed, now they decided to officially announce Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass with a teaser.

Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass Teaser

The teaser offers nothing that we haven't ever seen before in a Serious Sam game but if showcases how the game has evolved over the years in so many different ways.

The trailer opens up with Sam "Serious" Stone driving his motorcycle into a location that is a quiet place and green everywhere. It could be a pastoral farm as we see a deer playfully wandering around. From a considerable distance, he notices a Beheaded Kamikaze heading towards his direction for their typical for suicidal attack while screaming loudly. Sam blows him up into bits by shooting as he passed and head straight towards a field with hundreds of them in it along with many other monsters.

This is where this shorter than a minute teaser ends and we got an idea that Sam is back in business once again to slay tons of evil extraterrestrial beings to save Earth from another invasion by their leader Mental. Croteam wants to take things on a much bigger scale with their most popular first-person shooter series and so, they are back with a mainline entry six years after releasing Serious Sam 3: BFE.

There is a Steam page for Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass but it offers no clue about the game at all, except that it will be available for PC of course. At E3 2018, Croteam will finally reveal what new super powerful weapons Sam will be wielding or why he is returning to take care of enemy force. That means, we can mark the calendar for June 12-14 to see full reveal of the game.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2 Release Date

2018 is going to mark Mega Man’s 30th anniversary and developer/publisher Capcom plans to celebrate this event by releasing their latest installment of the franchise, Mega Man 11. However, we don't need to wait that long and can celebrate our favorite blue robot character Mega Man with Mega Man X game series, because Capcom is bringing Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 & 2, collecting all eight X games of the series for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2 Release Date

Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 & 2 both will debut worldwide on July 24, 2018. Mega Man X Legacy Collection collects Mega Man X, X2, X3 and X4 from the series and Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 contains X5, X6, X7 and X8. These collections will be available to digitally purchase for only $19.99 each. If you prefer to buy physical copy, then the two discs retail bundle collection will cost you $39.99 only. For Switch, the first collection comes in a cartridge and a digital download voucher will be given for second compilation.

Below is the announce trailer for Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2, briefly showcasing unique history of the series.

The entire action-platformer Mega Man X series is based on a post-apocalyptic setting that we are about to revisit through Legacy Collection 1 & 2. During the 16-bit era of 90's, Mega Man X entered the scene in 1994 to usher an evolution on its own. A classic formula of jumping and shooting through eight different stages with a Maverick boss character at the end to foil a sinister plot by an evil mastermind was established. Mega Man X series has added dashing and wall jumping into the gameplay mix.

Some all-new features are what make legacy collections special and visual upgrade is one of them. Each title has received some graphical smoothing which is optional for players or you can just play as they were in their original resolution. CRT filters for early sprite-based entries and full screen mode to balance the aspect ratio are there with widescreen mode. Mega Man X7 and X8 has their 3D models improved for sharp output as well.

Full soundtracks of the series, brand-new tracks and remixes are all included. One more thing there is to note about these anthologies is that Mega Man Xtreme, Mega Man Xtreme 2 and Mega Man X: Command Mission games are excluded in this set. A 25-minute original video animation titled "The Day of Σ" from Maverick Hunter X, which details origin story of series antagonist Sigma in prior events that laid foundation for X games series.

All-New "X Challenge" Mode

There is a museum full of archived key-arts, notable trailers, toys, trading cards and other cool stuff. Plus, a brand-new "X Challenge" mode is introduced, where Mega Man has to take on two classic Maverick bosses at the same time from different X games. You get to choose a maximum of three weapons into the fight or if you believe yourself as a pro-Maverick hunter then jump in with only a buster for earning your bragging rights. Have you ever wondered if you can defeat both Chill Penguin and Frost Walrus at once? Now you can easily find out.

With releasing of Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2, Capcom finally is giving some recognition to this classic series what was due for decades as they are no longer available on Nintendo 3DS. Whether you picked up early titles of the franchise or came late to pick the newer games, these two collections will suffice.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 Comes to Consoles

After experiencing massive success for their role-playing game Divinity: Original Sin in 2014, developer Larian Studios got on board for a sequel and Divinity: Original Sin 2 was released on September 14, 2017 for PC. It soon became a critically-acclaimed RPG title and starts topping Steam by leaving popular video games like Dota 2 and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds behind them at that time. Now to rule the consoles of next generations, it is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platform in August, 2018.

Below is the announcement trailer for Divinity: Original Sin 2 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, showcasing the world of fantasy and in-game aspects it offers.

Realizing true potential within the game, Japanese video game development company and publisher Bandai Namco came forth to bring this RPG title to consoles to reach out for an even bigger crowd. This one was sort of inevitable as the developers eventually released Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition for PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One back in 2015, a year after initial release on PC following their immense triumph.

Not only the game has a four-player online co-op mode but it also supports two-player split-screen. Divinity: Original Sin 2 lets players control six in-game characters for a turn-based combat system, each having their very own back stories and different personalities to match. Interestingly, you are allowed to create your own character as well. Flexibility in customizing the game as you see fit is truly satisfying when you cannot just assemble your group but also pick up skills for them too.

RELATED: Regalia: Royal Edition Release Date Announced

Larian Studios started their journey with this sequel from Kickstarter and after they were successfully crowd-funded by the platform, DOS 2 followed the path of success just like it was destined to. Swen Vincke of the developer studio is actually a fan of Bandai Namco for their take on Dark Souls and The Witcher, which made him believe they can properly bring this RPG to its true appeal.

Since release, Divinity: Original Sin 2 has seen almost all sort of critic's praise that creative role-playing game could possibly hope for. It was declared "Game of the Year" by PC Gamer magazine and at The Game Awards 2017, DOS 2 was nominated as "Best Role-Playing Game", while becoming highest scoring PC game by Metacritic. Considering how Larian Studios previously treated the original game, console versions will surely see some improvements.

The King of Fighters XIV DLC Character Blue Mary

The latest installment in The King of Fighters fighting game series, The King of Fighters XIV came out in 2016. By now, we all know that Ver. 3.00 update is headed to KOF XIV very soon and we all are excited for four new DLC characters coming along with it. Three of them were already revealed previously and now we are here to announce the final DLC character and it's Blue Mary! Her addition to the game is due to many requests for her character by fans.

For those of you who don't know, she made her debut in Fatal Fury 3 before she made her way into KOF series. Upon entering the tournament of KOF '97 in a team with Billy Kane and Ryuji Yamazaki, she quickly became very popular to fans. Her Japanese fan base actually voted for "Blue" Mary Ryan through gaming magazines to be picked for her entry in The King of Fighters '97. Billy and Yamazaki were also picked with her and you can re-create the original team of these three once again in KOF XIV.

Blue Mary is one of the characters of the series with a very unique move-set as her fighting style is based on Sambo, a Soviet martial art form. Most of her attacks are grapple moves and that thing didn't change for till date according to the trailer. Back in the day, designers had a tough time to animate her moves but it was a fun experience in the end and everything worked out pretty fine. KOF XIV used a new graphic engine to render those moves in real-time 3D.

As soon as Ver. 3.00 update is going live on April 12, 2018 for PC and PlayStation 4, Blue Mary will be playable in The King of Fighters XIV along with three other characters Heidern, Najd and Oswald from KOF series. With the release of this DLC, player roster of the game will expand to a total of 58 fighters! Aside from four fan-favorite characters, this update offers character balance adjustments.

State of Decay 2 PAX-East 2018 Gameplay

Within a couple of months we are going to get our hands on co-op multiplayer survival horror game State of Decay 2 from Undead Labs and Microsoft Studios. As the moment of release approaches closer every day, the developers are dropping new information every now and then to tease us some more about the game. For now, we got a brand-new trailer featuring new in-game footage and gameplay, straight outta PAX East 2018.

Be sure to take a quick look at the clip below to have some idea on combat and surrounding environments you will be stepping on from Undead Labs.

The gameplay trailer from above gives us some more in-depth glance at base building and character selection than the once we saw before. Defending your base from attacks of incoming zombie horde is as important as clearing out the once roaming in the street. Though it wasn't some serious piece of performance in the clip, we still get the idea of how things are. Most important aspect we noticed is that the balance of stockpile, build base and protect it from undead invasion at all time.

Combat system presents some variety for you to keep from being repetitive. You can sneak up on them using stealth, melee attack them directly, run over by them with your vehicle, hit them with your car door or just grab one of them and throw away. One thing that you will quickly realize after a while that, these zombies don't come at you all at once but if you linger them for some time, they will quickly overwhelm you and it will be too late then.

RELATED: State of Decay 2 Won't Have Micro-Transactions

State of Decay 2 is an open world zombie game, which will be available to play on May 22, 2018 for PC and Xbox One as part of Xbox Play Anywhere experience. During launch, it will also be on Xbox Game Pass and at 4K resolution the game will ran on Xbox One X as well. Bravo to the developer team for not including any micro-transactions within the game, which is a great initiative in the age of loot boxes.

Deckard Cain Joins Heroes of the Storm

Players who have enjoyed Blizzard Entertainment’s action role-playing Diablo franchise may remember the last Horadric scholar character Deckard Cain. Before he met his fate at the hands of Maghda and her Dark Coven, Cain re-forged the fallen archangel Tyrael's broken sword in Diablo III. You might be wondering why we are not talking about Diablo but just a recurring character who used to narrate lore and offer advice? Well, Blizzard is bringing him back once again.

Blizzard has officially announced Deckard Cain from Diablo series is going to be drafted as a playable character for their free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena game Heroes of the Storm, available on Mac and PC. Cain will be joining the Nexus this April and we have a spotlight trailer here to showcase his abilities.

RELATED: Hearthstone: The Witchwood Expansion Announced

Deckard Cain is introduced as a support hero to aid his fellow Heroes of the Storm characters during battle by handing out healing potions for them. When he will give up potions, it will heal the first nearest ally and then another and at a time, he can drop five of these. He can throw out Horadric Cube as one of his offensive abilities to deliver 80 damage to his enemies within range and also slow them down to 40 percent for a brief time, which is 1.75 seconds to be exact. This one is a great tool to control opponents and set up your allies.

Cain's Scroll of Sealing spreads out a magical triangle to root his rivals in their place for 1.5 seconds and dealing 150 damage inside this protective scroll. One of his famous line from Diablo series was "Stay Awhile and Listen", which is Cain’s ultimate ability in Heroes of the Storm. Enemies in range will be put to sleep for two seconds as he will tell stories to them. By sticking close to his allies, he gains 10 armor his basic abilities charge back twice faster than usual.

Now, this is not a new news for Heroes of the Storm players that Blizzard brings out many popular character into this popular online hero brawler from Diablo, Overwatch, StarCraft, The Lost Vikings and Warcraft series every now and then. Though, many followers of the HotS franchise initially thought his inclusion to be an April fool's joke, we think it would be interesting to see how his character works out into the mix.

Marvel's Spider-Man Release Date & Details

It was only a day ago, when we last spoke about the still undecided release date of Marvel's Spider-Man and how fans have been waiting eagerly from last year for the news. Whether is it on social platforms or pleas to developers, fans wanted to hear a date. So, Insomniac Games and Sony finally let them have their day by announcing the most-awaited day of 2018 for Spider-Man fans worldwide by revealing the game's release date.

By now, we saw more than one trailer with Spidey in action and we can never have enough. So, here is some more footage showcasing your friendly neighborhood wall-crawler.

Marvel's Spider-Man will be out on September 7, 2018, exclusively for PlayStation 4 platform. Sadly, PC and Xbox One owners have to sit this one down as this title is not going anywhere from Sony consoles. After working on the game for the last few years, Insomniac Games is finally dropping probably the best Spider-Man video game experience. This is a brand-new universe for our beloved hero dedicated for amazing Marvel fan base.

We also get to have a good look at Marvel’s Spider-Man final box art, which is by far just as amazing as Spidey could get. Now, this is no surprise at all as Insomniac has a track record for providing great game covers and Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time or Sunset Overdrive can be a good example on that case. A pure red background, reminiscent to his Spider-Suit truly brings out our hero into spotlight!

Insomniac's Spider-Man presents us a new take on Spidey's suit which is far-more advanced and rather different than his classic one. The posture of Spider-Man on cover art clearly shows inspiration of his character from last 50 years of depiction by artists J. Scott Campbell, Joe Quesada, John Romita Jr., Mark Bagley and Steve Ditko. This is probably the reason, why our all-new Spidey still feels so familiar to us.

Marvel’s Spider-Man standard edition can be purchased in retail or digitally for $59.99 only. There is a Digital Deluxe edition of the game that costs only $79.99, which has post-launch DLC packs and extra suits alongside the original game. Place a pre-order for Digital Deluxe edition to receive a limited edition collectible pin of Marvel’s Spider-Man if you are living in US or Canada. One of the additional suits is already shown in the trailer above and the other two will be revealed shortly as well.

Keeping in mind that there are some hardcore Spider-Man fans crazy about owning collectible items of their favorite web-slinger, there is a Collector’s Edition. Not only it has all the contents of Digital Deluxe Edition, it contains a Steelbook case, Mini Artbook featuring game arts, Marvel’s Spider-Man statue and it is priced only $149.99. Titan Books have provided the Mini Artbook and statue of Spidey is courtesy of Gentle Giant. If you look closely to that, you will see that Spider-Man is on top of something which is yet to be revealed. Even at this point, Insomniac and Sony have been very secretive.

What we think is best news for everyone here is that even if you end up buying the standard edition of the game or miss to pre-order, you can still have all of them. Spend a few bucks for alternate costumes or Spider-Drone gadget and you can have it for yourself. No need to take stress over it at all. We discussed a lot about collectibles and merchandises already but lot are still to be revealed regarding the game. For that, our suggestion is you grab a copy of May issue of Game Informer magazine.

Marvel's Spider-Man Exclusive Coverage Trailer

Upcoming action-adventure game Marvel’s Spider-Man from Insomniac Games and Sony Entertainment is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated video game titles of 2018 and a PlayStation 4-exclusive, Game Informer magazine has recently featured it on their cover of May '18 issue to get players hyped up even more. The cover art was done by legendary comic-book artist Alex Ross and his work here looks as amazing as Marvel's Spider-Man is going to be.

When the title will finally make its debut, developer Insomniac Games would probably create history by ascending into one of the top dogs in game making. May '18 issue of the popular magazine will be entirely dedicated to everyone's favorite web-slinger as he swings throughout New York City. Before covering the issue, Game Informer has spent two days with developers to get a better peak at what they are doing with our friendly neighborhood wall-crawler.

We got an exclusive footage of the game right here that has interviews from executive editor Andrew Reiner of Game Informer magazine.

According to the interview from this trailer, Insomniac Games had one single goal on their mind while developing Marvel's Spider-Man for PlayStation 4 owners and that is to not only let them play as Spider-Man but also make them feel like they are on the shoes of their favorite hero. It's all about letting people get a better grip at the world for the hero under the hood of that Spider-Suit and we are not talking about a troubled teenage Peter Parker but a bit older, an experienced one.

RELATED: Marvel’s Spider-Man Teaser Trailer

Early trailer footage has already teased us about the appearance of another fan-favorite character Miles Morales, who probably has some important part to play in the game's plot as well. However, aside from Peter Parker going into action as Spider-Man there are no clue or suggestions that Miles Morales would do something similar. We also see the overall change of Spidey's costume for the game but there are possibilities of getting a glimpse of classic Spider-Man suit on some in-game campaign at any point.

Game Informer’s May Cover Revealed

Game Informer has already covered a full 14 pages of news and features on Spidey on their upcoming May issue and that should keep the fans happy. The beautiful cover artwork by Alex Ross is a piece of gold and this guy has a history with friendly neighborhood Parker too. Ross was previously responsible for some concept arts of Sam Raimi’s original Spider-Man 1 and 2 movies. The sheer awesomeness of Spider-Man’s suit on Game Informer cover proves that he still hasn't lost his touch yet.

RELATED: Marvel’s Spider-Man Possible Release Date

What fans eagerly want to know at this point is that when are we getting our hands on Marvel's Spider-Man? Because, there is no apparent release date or time revealed till date. Although, there was a possible release date theory from a Coolshop listing suggesting it to be September 28, 2018 but it was not officially verified. Since Game Informer magazine is going to cover this title, we might as well get a hint at that or even get an actual date of release as Insomniac prepares to launch it.
