E. X. Troopers Gets Another Trailer, Makes Us Sad

Why walk? E. X. Troopers asks us. Why not use your jetpack instead of trudging about the place? And then jump into a giant badass space mech and battle other giant badass space mechs before heading back onto solid ground and annihilating some marauding bugs with tight controls and slick powers?

Capcom are just being mean now.

Having essentially refused to release E. X. Troopers over here in the West, we're forced to sit and watch these fantastic trailers (oh look, there's an awesome new one!), rocking back and forth in a dark corner, weeping into a flannel, and only dreaming of the fun we could be having with our 3DS consoles.

Well boo to you, Capcom.

...Except you probably shouldn't, because whatever you wear will almost certainly end up showered in blood. Dennaton and Devolver have teamed up to deliver a retro, top-down gaming video nasty with Hotline Miami, and it's absurdly addictive. Reiterating the October 23rd release date, there's a new trailer showing off some gameplay footage, interspersed with lots of dead bodies.

Put A ZombiU Tower of London Walkthrough Vid In Your Face

Ubisoft's hardcore FPS with added braaains has received a new video, this time taking a little sojourn through the Tower of London. One of the most haunted places in Britain, the Tower is pretty foreboding anyway. Toss in a bunch of zombies, and it all gets pretty real rather quickly.

You can see what we thought of the game in Brendan's Gamescom preview.

Lost Planet 3 Gets Massive Gameplay Walkthrough

Though we're far more interested in the cel-shaded, fun-focused E.X. Troopers (localise it for the West, dammit Capcom!), a whopping ten-minute walkthrough for Spark Unlimited's Lost Planet 3 has caught our attention. This narrated slab of gameplay shows off combat, new enemies and mecha brawls, and it certainly looks good from a graphical standpoint.

Game's out in 2013.

New Planetside 2 Command Center Video Looks At Esamir and Heavy Assault Class

Planetside 2 is currently in closed beta, and every time we mention the game to Carl he turns into a gibbering wreck of ecstasy and falls over.

Anyway, the latest Command Center (sic) episode has gone live, and it takes a closer look at the snowy lands of the recently revealed Esamir, not to mention a glance at the Heavy Assault class, and some feedback from creative director Matthew Higby and senior art director Tramell Isaac on how the beta is going.

Telltale Acknowledge Walking Dead Save Game Bugs, "Taking It Seriously"

Well it's about time.

A number of folks, this writer included, have been somewhat irked that the save game functionality in The Walking Dead has proven itself to be temperamental at best, and horribly broken at its worst. And now, it seems, enough people have complained for Telltale to take note.

The revised website has been updated with a background hosting some images of a few rather familiar video game franchises, with the likes of Mass Effect, Killzone, LittleBigPlanet, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, God of War, and Uncharted peeking out from the background.

Capcom Making On-Disc Resi 6 DLC Free

Capcom got rumbled a couple of days ago when a modder datamined the Resident Evil 6 disc to uncover tracces of on-disc DLC, and they've now confirmed that the disc does hold a super-hard difficulty mode called No Hope Left, and also a co-op mode for Ada's campaign. It'll also allow players to dive into Ms. Wong's campaign from the start rather than having to complete all of the other story threads first.

Oh, and they're releasing it for free.

REPORT: Windows 8 Marketplace Will Not Allow Sale of 18+ Rated Games

Microsoft have revealed that developers will not be able to ship mature-rated games through the Windows 8 Store in Europe. According to a new report that quotes heavily from the Windows 8 app certification requirements, the new regulations will prevent the sale of any games rated PEGI 18 in Europe, or ESRB Mature in North America.

If that seems a little hypocritical considering the Xbox LIVE Marketplace, well that's because it is.

Why is Darren Bent in a promotional video for Medal of Honor: Warfighter? Well, we're not entirely sure. The latest trailer for Danger Close Games' authentic military FPS is a bit contrived to be frank, essentially showing the best way of silently neutralising people having a little kickabout in the park.

Jumpers for goalposts and stealthy assassinations? Oh, go on then.

Check out our recent Warfighter preview here.
