We here at OMGeek are very much looking forward to Payday 2's release which promises some big upgrades over the last one. The sequel improves and expands on its predecessor a great deal, with plenty of new game mechanics including an add emphasis on stealth, character classes, weapon customization, and skill trees. Check out the trailer for more details.

[youtube_sc url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DuainYL3FjM"]

Adam Sessler's weekly video series "Sessler's Something" reflects on the seemingly-unavoidable fanboyism that seems to permeate through almost every discussion on the internet. Adam talks about whether game prices are dropping faster than ever, and how that might affect the next-generation's digital distribution.

Cooperatives: The Last Of Us

[youtube_sc url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQkv7s5Geys"]

Man I wish I owned a PS3 so I could play this game. Unfortunately I'm caught in between console releases and I'll be sticking to my gaming PC and will probably end up waiting for a PS4 for those exclusives. Next best thing? Probably either watch Let's Play videos or check out this video by Polygon which explores the world of The Last Of Us.

Have I missed any other interesting this last week? What did you think of my picks? Leave a comment and let me know, I’d love to hear from you.

Wideo Wednesday: We love trailers and talking about video games

I'll be honest, its been a slow week for gaming videos, especially a month after E3 with most of the big titles already shown off. Not to worry, I've still managed to round up some diverse, yet interesting videos for you.

Star Citizen - Economy Trailer

More news keeps coming about one of the most anticipated game releases for 2014. It's almost been weekly since E3 but I'm not complaining! In the latest, Chris Roberts takes you behind the scenes to explain how the economy will function in Star Citizen.

Mercenary Kings - Early Access Trailer

Did you ever play the Metal Slug series? If the answer is yes, then you'll love what's in this trailer. Mercenary Kings is a 2D action game that harkens back to the arcade and Neo Geo days of action games like the aforementioned series, as well as Contra. The good news is that the game will be available July 22nd on Steam Early Access at 25% off.
