Take a look at the trailer above for yourself and be on the look out for GTA V for XBOX One & PS4 November 18th (PC Jan24th).
Ever since the EA Canada division took over for hockey, it seems as if the franchise has played more to the likes of a traditional arcade hockey game with heavy hits and frequent goals. Earlier today, the official trailer for NHL 15 was released and it appears that they are heading in the right direction with improved graphics and a slightly more accurate style of gameplay. The last highlight kinda hurt with Kane’s backhand game winner over the Wild. Stay tuned as NHL 15 is released this upcoming September 9th.

The long awaited game, Watch Dogs, has officially been delayed until May 27th, 2014. The game, which has had everyone ooing and awwing over the last year, will take a back seat for now as Ubisoft makes sure the release date goes as planned. Hopefully the games high expectations won’t make for one epic flop. If you are not familiar with the game, here is some brief info to help you catch up.
The game itself is an open world action-adventure game based in Chicago. In this third-person shooter, you are able to hack into just about everything to manipulate multiple outcomes of the game. This allows you to enter peoples bank systems, traffic lights, power to the city and many others. While the demo that was shown at E3 a year ago had way better graphics than this trailer, it has been rumored that this is the trailer for the PS3/360 versions of the game. If this is true, it is odd they wouldn’t be showing us the absolute best product that they have.
Watch Dogs will be released for every platform, including the Wii U (which has no release date as of yet).
From the developers of the God of War series, presents their latest installation The Order: 1866. Developers, Ready at Dawn, have been slowly leaking more and more information about their game. The game itself has quite the backstory, so if you are interested, watch the second video above.
The game is set in an alternate history, where knights keep the world safe from animal like monsters which have eventually taken over the mythical world. The human Knights soon discover Black Water, which enables them healing powers allowing them to live longer, thus the start of a Revolution.
The game is set to be released solely for the PS4 console, and should make for a really in-depth experience when gaming. There is no set date, but it said to be released by mid 2014. MADE will feature regular updates on The Order, so stay tuned.
Meet the real Trevor, Franklin, and MIchael. Kind of a long interview, but pretty interesting none the less. It seems like their real selves are much like their characters. Take a look.
Yesterday, Sony released some images and videos about their latest device, which should be out this upcoming fall (possibly as soon as November). The Vita TV, is similar to Apple TV, but is something more so invested into Sony products, like the PS4. The Vita allows you to stream the PS4 onto multiple TVs in your home; essentially meaning, you can play games or watch Netflix on multiple screens with the Vita TV. The Vita is incredibly small and takes up little to no space, which is a plus. The back side of the device has HDMI capability, a memory card slot, a USB port, and 1GB of internal storage. It has also been rumored that the device will allow you to play PSP, PS One and many other PSN games as well. Sony will be selling the device for just under $100, which is not too bad for the amount of features it will have.
