Until Dawn is a PlayStation exclusive survival horror adventure where eight friends are trapped together on a remote mountain retreat, and they aren’t alone. You can play as each of the eight characters and experience fear like never before, where every decision you make could mean the difference between life and death!

Next up, we have Telltale’s Game of Thrones series. You’ll get all six episodes, which follows the family of House Forrester as they survive (Or don’t?) the War of the Five Kings. Winter is Coming, and this is a great way to beat the summer heat.

  • Tokyo Jungle, PS3
  • Darkstalkers Resurrection, PS3
  • Element4l, PS Vita

While being very early still, it is looking dark and bloody, just the way a proper vampire game should be. Set in the early 1900’s in London, the backdrop of the city being under the ravages of the Spanish Flu is the perfect setting for this new bloodsucking adventure. Take a look at the trailer below and get a feel for this dark adventure

The Secret World Relaunching As Free To Play Game

thesecretworld_logo

Several years ago, Funcom, the creators of Anarchy Online and Dark Age of Conan, created one of the most innovative Massively Multi-player Role Playing Games in The Secret World. That game had some problems, but also had one of the most unique gameplay loops, with genuinely interesting detective missions as well as your regular MMO fare, all set in an extremely unique backdrop of secret societies and things that go bump in the night.

Now they have decided that there is a lot to love in that game, but that maybe they did a few things wrong and maybe got a little too “out there” with some of the gameplay aspects, such as no levels or classes. Well now they have gone back to the drawing board and have fixed a lot of that games issues, and along the way decided to make it free to play in Secret World Legends.

Now anyone can go to their website, download Secret World Legends and enjoy, what is in my opinion, one of the best, most often overlooked MMO’s that has now been made even better.

You can check out the launch trailer for Secret World Legends below

10 Minutes of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Gameplay – #E32017

Check out 10 minutes from Koji Igarashi’s CastleVania inspired game Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. I didn’t have a chance to play Bloodstained at E3 but I’m super excited as I’m a huge CastleVania fan. Its been too long since a good side scrolling CastleVania has been released. The only bad news is that this game is still a long ways out and isn’t expected to be released until some time in 2018.
