BBC's GTA drama starring Daniel Radcliffe dated and trailered

There's not long to go now before the BBC's The Gamechangers airs on BBC Two. The controversial documentary focuses on the development of the Grand Theft Auto series and the conflict between the company and outspoken US lawyer (now disbarred), Jack Thompson. Despite Grand Theft Auto developers, Rockstar, suing the BBC over the film, it would appear it's going to air anyway.

Dan Houser, a Rockstar co-founder will be played by Daniel Radcliffe (of Harry Potter fame), while Thompson will be played by Bill Paxton (Aliens, Apollo 13). Oddly, the BBC have not worked with Rockstar on the project, instead opting to base it on court documents and third party people who were apparently involved with events.

Sony's Tokyo Game Show 2015 lineup revealed

The Tokyo Game Show is a few short weeks away now and we've received word of the titles Sony will be showcasing at the Japanese expo during September 17th-20th. These are mainly Sony titles, but there are a few third-party appearances from the likes of Capcom , Konami, Square Enix, Bandai Namco and Atlus.

Expect a few surprises during the event too. We're hoping Gravity Rush 2 shows some signs of life at least. The Vita lineup is predictably sparse at the moment and it's more likely that game will make it to PS4 at this stage. Sony's on-stage presentation will take place a few days earlier on the 15th and we'll provide updates on the latest news from Tokyo.

Cliff Bleszinski's LawBreakers gameplay trailer has some moves

Until now, we'd only seen a few very pretty screenshots for Cliff 'Gears of War' Bleszinski's new FPS, but now we have a name and more importantly, a gameplay trailer. And it's looking pretty damn impressive.

LawBreakers will be a free-to-play title launching on PC, presumably in 2016. There's no official word on a console release, but after watching this video, we're sure PS4 and Xbox One owners wouldn't mind a taste. The video shows off the different styles of characters and how the Earth's shattered gravity atmosphere means everyone's moon jumping around. Laser tethers also allow players to wall run around the outsides of buildings too.
