Wideo Wednesday: A whole lot of trailers and excitement for the year ahead

This week's videos are full of promise. We're taking a look at exciting games coming out very soon to a platform near you. All are slated for release this year, with the soonest being The Walking Dead: 400 days in a few days. I'm also pumped for Battlefield 4, especially because I'm a fan of the series itself and the fact that OMGeek had its humble beginnings with hosting a BF3 server, as some of you might remember. We also have videos of Saints Row IV and The Bureau XCOM Declassified to whet your appettite.

Battlefield 4: Official Frostbite 3 Feature Video

First up we have a great looking video of the next generation Frostbite 3 engine powering Battlefield 4, straight from the developers at DICE. We get a combination of interviews from the devs interspersed with some amazingly high def footage of the latest Battlefield game. It looks absolutely stunning and I can't wait to get my hands on this.

More after the jump!

Saints Row IV - Gameplay Walkthrough

This is a fun bit of footage and gameplay of what appears to be the first 9 minutes of Saints Row IV, so fair warning to those of you who don't want to get spoiled. The storyline is pretty interesting and I'm really looking forward to getting to the bottom of exactly what the hell you get to do as President of the United States in this open world game.

The Bureau XCOM Declassified

This one's for Jed, our resident XCOM-ophile. A latest variant of the XCOM series, this latest trailer shows you a version of XCOM that takes you back to the early 1960's as an FBI special agent investigating extraterrestrials and UFOs. It is slated for release for PC and consoles on August 20, 2013.

The Walking Dead: 400 Days

Not quite Season 2 of Telltale's amazingly refreshing episodic game series, 400 Days is actually additional content for the first game. The trailer shows five separate stories which carry on from the decisions you made on the first season. It will also carry on with those decisions made into season two.

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.
