Wideo Wednesday: Let me entertain you with these action packed videos

It's been a great week for game trailers. I have for you this week almost a half hour worth of ancient battles, steel clashing, explosions and gun shooting. So if that's your thing, feel free to kick back, relax and enjoy the mid week with these great gaming videos.

Total War: Rome II - "Battle of the Nile" Walkthrough Trailer

As a fan of the original Total War: Rome, almost 9 years ago now, this sequel is a long time coming. September 3rd can't come soon enough. The scope of this game is absolutely massive. It's set in classical antiquity and will focus initially on the Roman Republic, allowing you to transform into the Roman Empire if you so choose. Like with Total War games, you get to control thousands of troops in real time tactical combat. In this epic video we get to see among other things elephants charging up hills towards the Egyptian army. Roma Victa!

Mad Max - "Soul of a Man" Gameplay Trailer

Mel Gibson, Australia - The Game. There's been a lot of excitement for what some may consider the original post apocalyptic type movie, which has now turned into a game. Sadly the main character doesn't exactly look like Mel Gibson, also no Kangaroos. It still looks great, but the trailer doesn't exactly show much about the game. Release date is set for 2014, but here's to hoping we get awesome car battles in the final release.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag - Pirate Combat Gameplay Trailer

Pirates and Assassins? I'm pretty sure there was an internet meme about this some years back. Okay so they were ninjas, not quite assassins. Anyway an impressive showing by Ubisoft Singapore with AC3's naval combat has been turned into a full fledged game with AC4 Black Flag. In this trailer we get to see pirate combat gameplay. It certainly looks great!

What is Payday 2?

Payday 2's Game Director David Goldfarb, takes us through what makes Payday 2 different from the original Payday The Heist, and other shooters out there on the market. PAYDAY 2 is an action-packed, 4-player co-op shooter that lets you rob banks and conduct different kinds of elaborate heists. Think Left 4 Dead with endless hordes of cops instead of zombies.

Gaming videos from yesterweek - I can't stop watching these dogs

I love watching gaming videos, in the form of news, trailers, previews or even Let's Play's it's how I unwind after a long day at work. I'm simply too busy to catch up or read during the day so I enjoy kicking back and firing up my favourite YouTube channels or gaming subreddit for the latest. I'd like to make this a regular series of posts to share with you the kind of gaming related videos that pique my interest, and give you some new videos to check out that you may have missed in the past week.

Watch Dogs Multiplayer Interview from IGN

First up we have an interview on Watch Dogs with Dominic Guay, Senior Producer at Ubisoft Montreal talking about how the singleplayer and multiplayer elements will have some sort of persistent tie in, he doesn't go into too much detail, but it certainly sounds promising.

Watch Dogs gameplay preview

More dogs being watched, here is an amazing 5 min gameplay video that shows you how dynamic simulated Chicago is, and the seemingly endless options you have to complete missions or tasks. As a tech nerd, I am absolutely loving the technology featured in this game.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag - True Golden Age of Pirates Trailer

Let's take a break from all the dog watching and check out this new trailer of Assassin's Creed IV. Needs MOAR Johnny Depp if you ask me.
