Here’s the official launch trailer for the open world, role-playing video game Shadow Of Mordor.
The Middle Earth based game has been developed by Monolith Productions and went on general release yesterday for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The game itself deals with the gap between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings saga as you play as Talion, a ranger with wraith-like abilities, who embarks upon a quest for revenge after his family are slayed by Sauron’s armies.
General reviews have been very positive with many describing it as a Middle Earth version of Assassin’s Creed.
Here’s both Microsoft’s and Sony’s press conferences which were held earlier this week at this year’s GamesCom, the world’s largest interactive games event which is held in Cologne, Germany.
Nintendo didn’t have a press conference at GamesCom and much like their decision to avoid an on-site presentation at this year’s E3 they once again opted for a video detailing all the major releases for the Wii U in the near future, (which you can watch below).
Regardless which console you’re a fan of it’s clear to see we are entering into an exciting new realm of gaming thanks to the mindblowing technology on display.

It’s about the small things in life. The little every day victories which keep us all moving forward with a spring in our step and a smile on our face.
Take the guy in the video above who after many, many hours of dedication and patience finally managed to complete Alexey Pajitnov’s 80s puzzle game Tetris. Did he celebrate? You’re damn right he did and with loads of colorful language too. If you can’t be bothered watching the whole video, the fun starts around 8.40.
Here’s a lavish cinematic trailer for Ubisoft’s forthcoming title Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, due out in November for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
The premise of the game centres around your character Shay Patrick Cormac, an Irish Assassin who now acts as a hunter of Assassins. Its understood his story will be linked to the next gen game Assassin’s Creed Unity due out in October.
The excellent NSFW animated short was developed for Ubisoft by horror director Rob Zombie and illustrated by The Walking Dead co-creator Tony Moore and is unsurprisingly extremely gory and violent.
It briefly dpeicts the bloody history behind the French revolution neatly setting up the premise for Ubisoft’s forthcoming game Assassin’s Creed Unity. Will this short make you run out and buy the game? Probably not. But it will make you yearn for a history teacher like Rob Zombie.
To promote their forthcoming game Assassins Creed: Unity at this year’s Comic Con in San Diego developers Ubisoft have constructed a parkour driven obstacle course for people to use, allowing them to get the real Assassins Creed experience.
As the video shows above you’ll be able to traverse, and run across obstacles using just your raw athleticism to conquer each section of the course. There’s just one hitch, the vast majority of those who will take part will likely be gamers…so, yeah…raw athleticism.

Broforce is an 80s themed platformer that takes inspiration from all your favourite retro action movies but with loads more guns and cheesy one-liners.
The game is set for release later this year.
Rust is a new survival, crafting game currently available on Steam for £14.99 created by the same guy who developed Gary’s Mod. You begin the game as a bollock naked bald guy and you must hunt and gather to survive, avoiding zombies and dangerous wildlife not to mention other bald, naked men some of which have shotguns or axes.
The game’s official synopsis rattles along like so:
“The player must gather resources to survive and craft all items within the game, with the exception of any starting gear. Players gather resources such as cloth, food or wood, which can be obtained from chopping trees with an axe. Other items come from the wildlife found throughout the island. The player starts with an initial crafting list of items such as weapons, clothing and building materials. As the player progresses throughout the game they can find blueprints for more advanced items to craft. These can be found in hidden crates, on killed NPCs or by researching items taken from other player’s bases.
During gameplay there are many challenges that the player can face such as starvation, drowning, hypothermia, attacks from wildlife or exposure to radiation from the many radiated areas throughout the island. Due to the game being exclusively multiplayer, PVP is an ever present challenge.”
Of course due to the amount of male nudity on display gameplay can sometimes lend itself to hilarious situations.
