We here at Vgamerz have been trying out the Battlefield Hardline and decided to share a bit of our experience thus far. The cops and robbers centric shooter is the first yearly entry in Battlefield, but it seems to make up with gameplay innovation with new game modes and gear. The gameplay video features play from both the police and criminals, along with a number of different weapon sets.
Driving feels better than before as, with a more traditional racing drift allowing for quicker and more response driving. The vehicle sets themselves felt shallow in comparison to those available in Battlefield 4, but with the crime angle more vehicles are sure to be added by launch day. Moment to moment it felt weird to play as both sides, with Cops using excessive violence and criminals mowing down cops in turn.
The imagery is sure to disturb some players more than others, but since the gameplay feels exactly like every other Battlefield I found it a simple ascetic swap that may not affect long time players. The gadgets are another cool addition, with zip lines and tazers leading the way. If Battlefield can change the formulaic combat scenario while still operating within their gigantic destructible arena’s then Hardline may be the best title yet. All this remains to be seen however, as the developers have proven a that a good framework exists and the only thing left is coming up with new ways to interact with it.
The new Battlefield and Call of Duty titles are both taking their respective series in new directions that aim to steer away from the typical military shooter, and I hope they can succeed.

Perhaps the most anticipated PS4 indie, No Man’s Sky had a brand new trailer debut on Sony’s main stage. The last we heard of Hello Game’s ambitious space explorer, the studio had been flooded and the game’s fate unsure. Making a triumphant return to the big stage, No Man’s Sky captured the hearts of gamers yet again with a single trailer. The game revolves around an infinite, procedurally generated universe filled with planets. Whenever someone first start up the game, they are placed on a brand new planet, all their own. From there they travel throughout the the universe discovering new planets, species and even other players. The space exploration looks like a simple point the ship and go experience, with some space vista’s rivaling the beauty found planetside. There is minimal combat, but somehow even that looks relaxed and fundamentally rewarding. The game also has timed console exclusivity on PS4, meaning that Playstation will be the only place to play for a while after launch. No Man’s Sky is doing something special, and you can see it for yourself below.

What could possibly be better than seeing an excellent new game at E3? Having it release as you are seeing it announced. Entwined, the first project by Pixel Opus has been revealed and released tonight, and it looks fascinating and gorgeous.
“Experience a tale about a bird and a fish that are in love but can never be together. Guide them both simultaneously over the course of nine unique lifetimes on a journey to unite their souls.”
Check out the first Entwined trailer below:
Using a method similar to Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons for controlling the bird and fish, we should have a lot of finger confusion mixed with delight while playing Entwined. Here’s to hoping it’s as good as it looks.
After it’s announcement a couple of weeks ago, Mortal Kombat X got it’s first gameplay trailer during Sony’s E3 conference. The trailer shows new environmental attacks, like grabbing a branch and swinging on a limb. It’s reminiscent of NetherRealms last game Injustice: Gods Among Us, where different characters interacted differently with Kombat pieces of the environment. The trailer also details X-ray moves too, in all their bone crunching brutality. The graphics aren’t anything compared to the CG trailer from a couple of weeks ago, but the game looks better than any comparable fighting games on the market. Check out the trailer below and share your thoughts in the comments.
One of Sony’s best moves at this year’s E3 was snatching up the ol’ Tim Shafer and Double Fine. Their other brilliant play was in form of Grim Fandango and its much needed revival. With a fresh coat of paint, Sony can officially seal the deal whilst simultaniously bringing back one of the most bizarre and creative adventure games to ever release, and I can’t wait to sink my teeth in.
In true Tim Schafer fashion, the introductory video is reminiscent of his special brand of humour. Check it out below to see for yourself:
We are all looking forward to Rocksteady’s newest entry into the Arkham franchise, and we just got a look into the gameplay of Arkham Knight thanks to Sony. During the Playstation Press Conference a new trailer walked through how traversal through the air and on the ground will work in it. The flight by cape looked exactly like it did in past Arkham games, with diving building Batman’s momentum allowing him to swoop back upward. The Batmobile took the biggest spotlight in the trailer, meeting Batman in the streets and transforming into a floating tank at one point. Over all the gameplay looked smooth and cinematic, capturing what’s best about the franchise.
In addition to Dying Light, Deep Silver revealed during the Sony Conference that Dead Island 2 is also coming to PS4. The game will get a Sony exclusive class as well.
The trailer didn’t show much in the way of showing gameplay, but it did let us in on the tone of the game. The trailer was goofy, and displayed a sense of humor that wasn’t present in the original game. Dead Island’s visceral gameplay and moment to moment mechanics are presumable returning, while vehicles are all but confirmed for the trailer.
Check out the video below to see the first details about the upcoming Dead Island 2:
To end Sony’s press conference tonight, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has been said to release in 2015. With the announcement comes the first official trailer featuring both Drake in all his glory, and in-game graphics that are bound to make even the coldest of men weep openly.
While we still know little on the title, it is reassuring to see Naughty Dog hard at work yet again, with another mindbogglingly beautiful project.
Check out the trailer below if you’re prepared to be amazed!
I fear that this may be the last we see of Uncharted if this trailer is to be taken literally, but we’ll have to wait for 2015 to see what mysteries await.
With rumours and leaks of Project Beast teasing the internet for weeks, it was no surprise that something would be mentioned at E3. What nobody expected, was that Project Beast is its own entity, separate from the Souls universe. Bloodborne, FromSoftware’s next project, will release on the Playstation 4 in 2015, and does it ever look great!
The most noteworthy thing to come from this news is that Hidetaka Miyazaki, FromSoftware’s new president, is the director of Bloodborne. He is as talented as he is worshipped in this industry, and it can only mean great things for Bloodborneto have him at the helm.

After this mornings tense teaser during Ubisoft press conference, Far Cry 4 got a more hands on approach during Sony’s. The gameplay saw our still unnamed protagonist climb a mountain, take out some troops (both stealthily and and not so stealthily). Then he wingsuited away, and was joined by a second player. Throughout the gameplay we saw the hunting, shooting, sneaking and traversal of Far Cry 3, but bigger quicker and with a friends. At the end of the trailer, Playstation revealed that if you buy the game on their console, then you can invite a friend who DOESN’T own the game and they can play with you. Check out the trailer below, and check back soon for more analysis later.
