Wideo Wednesday: The future of gaming is on your face

This week's gaming videos focus on providing you a glimpse of next gen gaming hardware and software integration. The first three videos cover that nicely. In fact, I'm extremely excited for the Oculus Rift, as discussed in episode 4 of the podcast where James, Jed and I talk extensively about how pumped we are with next gen hardware slated to come out very soon. The last two videos I included some upcoming games that I'm looking forward to this year including Payday 2 and AC4 which show some very promising footage!

HydraDeck: Cover Shooter Playthrough

What is this I don't even...

Testing a 1080P Prototype OCULUS RIFT VR headset

Ok so now that I've gotten over the initial shock of how amazingly ambitious, realistic and mind blowing the potential for shooters can be with the above video, let me get into another Oculus Rift vid. This one shows a hands on with not just an Oculus Rift development kit, but the new 1080P HD Oculus Rift Prototype over at PAX Australia.

Battlefield 4: Official Battlelog Features Video

Ah the Battlefield series, my favourite go-to multiplayer shooter experience is now pulling its "next gen" card with the integration of tablet and mobile apps into the game, where you actually get to utilise the map, play as the commander and update your class and weapon configs on the fly. What do you think about this? Could it be too gimmicky perhaps? Or could this just increase the amount of AFK players on the battlefield due to unncessary distractions? I know its still early days but I'm still not quite sure what this might bring to the table to be honest.

13 Minutes of Caribbean Open-World Gameplay in Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag

In this video, Game Director Ashraf Ismail takes us deeper into the world of AC4 with his commentary. Bear in mind this is a 13 min video but its well worth sitting through as you get to appreciate the stunning beauty of the Caribbean setting. Dat beach, dem waters. I'm certainly hoping this takes the bad taste of AC3 out of my mouth and I'm pretty sure James hopes so too! (He unleashes his hate for it in episode 1)

Let's Play - Payday 2 Beta

This is a coop game me and the guys have been looking forward to getting. Payday 2 is actually coming out in a few weeks. If you're interested, check out this 25 min Let's Play (LP) video for a more in-depth look at the game and see for yourself how the mechanics work for some crazy fun FPS heist coop gameplay.

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 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.
