Hideo Kojima has made his thoughts known about the current style of trailers in the games industry. He makes it quite clear, through his English Twitter account, for The Phantom Pain trailer, that he wants to focus on character and story, rather than a Hollywood style of explosions and cacophony.

As is becoming the norm for most titles if you pre-order the game from participating retailers you will be upgraded to the Rivals Ultimate Cop Pack.

Back in 2011 NetherRealms studio created for my money the best single player experience in a fighting game to date. This was due to the game not being just a ladder system but having an actual narrative.

One of the biggest reveals from the Xbox One event was the new game from Infinity Ward. With further details coming out at E3.

With a great writing talent on board the hope is the single player will push the ante for storytelling.
One thing for certain is that Call of Duty will be releasing on the next generation and going hard for our gaming hour
The successor to Microsoft's Xbox 360 console has been revealed at a press conference that was streamed around the world. The Console name Xbox One feeds into the principle that the console will be the 'One' piece of equipment you need for entertainment in the living room. Whether this is a masterstroke or a mis-step remains to be seen. Below we will showcase some of the highs of the new system.
On the gaming front, our feeling from the Xbox One reveal is that it is appealing to the middle ground of gamers with the focus on bringing the exclusive content for COD and FIFA. This is no bad thing, by gaining a major following of gamers Microsoft may secure enough of an install base to keep the Xbox as a market leader, if not on the cutting edge of indie game development.
With an updated engine the second installment of the World War 2 RTS will shift its emphasis from the Western to the Eastern front. In the wastelands of the USSR you will not only have to deal with enemy troops but an altogether different foe will always be lurking, The Weather.

One thing is for sure the game looks impressive from my time with it at Eurogamer 2012 and other exposures it looks to build upon the success of the originaland that should be the recipe for a great title.

The new villain list includes Black Mask and the subject of some nice pre-purchase Dlc Deathstroke. With the promise of a post origin but pre-Arkham Asylum story line the addition of these villains is a welcome change.

The novel way of using your voice (via the PS2's Mic) as a distraction technique added a level of complexity to the stealth and increasing the imersive nature of the gameplay.

Unfortunately one thing a trailer cannot do is show off how the game feels to play but with the promise from Kaz that he will be able make you "feel" the force while cornering as well among other upgrades then this really will be the premier driving simulator out there.
