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.

SGC '13 - Sessler and Sterling

If you don't mind sitting through over an hour of games journalists talking about the games industry, then do check this out. Here we have Adam Sessler and Jim Sterling talk about the industry at the ScrewAttack Gaming Convention. It's actually worth it. Both are highly respected by the community and have good insights.

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.

Civilization 5: Brave New World Review

What I call a black hole for time, Civilization 5 now has its second expansion pack with plenty of changes to cultural and diplomatic systems, along with 9 new civs and leaders. Check out this review by Rev3Games to see if its worth your time and money.

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 - A whole bunch of Dogs, Titans, Heroes and Star Citizens

It's that time of the week again! I've got some of the best gaming videos lined up for you today. E3 is now well behind us but we still have new footage of some of the big titles like Watch Dogs showing off multiplayer, and Titanfall which is shaping up really nicely. Company of Heroes 2, a personal favourite which came out earlier this week, has a single player dev diary. Saving the best for last, we've got some amazing in-game footage of Star Citizen. That's all I'll say, so check out the videos now!

Watch Dogs - Multiplayer Gameplay 

We finally have more detail as to how exactly the multiplayer works out in Watch Dogs and I think it's pretty neat. What we see is obviously a big focus on the hacking mechanic and a lot of evasion that comes along with the "hunting and hacking" in this game mode. I'm also hoping to see more of other modes and how you can actually wreak more havoc in Chicago with other players.

Titanfall - Behind the Scenes

Mech on Mech combat, intense FPS multiplayer combat and fluid ingame animations, I'm still in awe from the fact that this was built on Valve's Source engine. This is a game built by former Infinity Ward people who branched off in a company called Respawn Entertainment. These guys definitely have the pedigree for building a top notch multiplayer game and I'm looking forward to this one.

Company of Heroes 2 Single Player Dev Diary 

Released earlier this week, the single player dev diary gives you an interesting look into what it took to build an immersive eastern front narrative from a military commander's perspective during WWII. A nice round of interviews and comments from the game designers and developers give you some real insight as to what it took to put together another impressive rendition of the much loved WW2 RTS franchise.

Star Citizen - 300i Spaceship Trailer and Introduction

So this is what USD $10m gets us space flight gaming nerds eh? What this video shows you is the pride of PC gaming, and the sheer power of what high end pc games are capable of. We are treated to absolutely gorgeous ingame graphics on CryEngine 3 for what can only be described as probably THE most anticipated PC game or any game for that matter in 2014.
