Re-released Resident Evil for current gen gets video, screenshots and art
I have enjoyed the remastered classics of games on the current generation systems. Hell, I enjoyed them on the last generation of systems. If the price point with these things is right, I think there's always a market for them. Need proof? Ask a Halo fan what they're looking forward to this fall.
Anyway, below is two trailers from Capcom. The first is a teaser for the remastered version of Resident Evil for the current generation systems. The other trailer is very much a teaser for Resident Evil Revelations 2, even though there isn't any actual gameplay attached to the trailer, it's nonetheless neat. For a minute there I thought they were having a child run through this year's Microsoft Presser at E3 2014 (green bands). Idiotic humor aside, check out the goods as well as the art and screenshots to the right for the remastered Resident Evil game coming in 2015.
As part of today’s Sony Computer Entertainment event in Japan, Capcom showcased content from its popular Resident Evil survival horror franchise. The first trailer debuted for the definitive version of the critically acclaimed masterpiece Resident Evil. The game is set for release on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, PlayStation® 3 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and PC in early 2015.

Also at the event, Capcom unveiled Resident Evil Revelations 2. The title is planned for release in early 2015 on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. More information and official details for Resident Evil Revelations 2 will be available in the near future so please stay tuned.

505 Games & N-Fusion Burn the Wick on Ember
This game might be HOT HOT HOT.
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, California - August 29, 2014 - 505 Games (U.S.) Inc., today, announced a development partnership with award-winning and seasoned game studio, N-Fusion Interactive, to publish an original title, Ember, an in-depth, exploration-based RPG game enchanted with ancient magic and filled with heroic adventure - on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
As the story goes, long ago when there was no sun and the world was black, the Embers fell from the heavens. These falling stars were like beacons in the pitch black world. An ancient race of druids, "the Lightbringers," traveled to these luminous objects. They performed a ritual of awakening and called the "Embers" out of their deep sleep. Suddenly the world became bright and the veil of darkness was lifted. The Embers were the embodiment of magical flame, light, and life, but as word spread about the sheer power of the Embers, they came to be hunted and captured. and so the war for Ember began.
"Ember is a passion project and a game idea we've been working on for more than 10 years. Through the collaboration with 505 Games we are finally able to bring this love letter to classic RPGs to life," Jeff Birns, CEO and Creative Director, of N-Fusion Interactive. "We are eager to share Ember with the gaming community and hope they will appreciate it as much as we've enjoyed creating it over the years."
"Our partnership with N-Fusion further serves as our commitment to bring great gaming experiences across all platforms," said Ian Howe, President of 505 Games. "Ember's graphic fidelity, gameplay and streaming environments creates an unparalleled and immersive gameplay experience that we're sure fans will love."
Players are resurrected as a "Lightbringer" and summoned to protect the dying Embers as the world is on the brink of collapse. As the journey begins in the Deep Barrows, players traverse vast environments divided between aboveground and underground realms, ranging from lush forests to dry deserts and dark abysses, to reach the City of Light. Through the encounter of strangers, will the story start to unfold and players will be forced to decide their destiny.
Ember will be available on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch or at www.AppStore.com this fall. In the meantime, PAX Prime 2014 attendees will be able to play a demo of Ember on the show floor.

About This War of Mine This War of Mine is the first game that lets you experience war not as a soldier, but as a group of civilians in a besieged city, struggling with a constant threat of disease, starvation and death, either from hardship, a sniper's bullet or at the hands of bandits. Do whatever it takes to survive - without destroying your souls, if possible.
The pace of the game is imposed by the day and night cycle. During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, so you need to focus on maintaining your hideout: crafting, trading and taking care of survivors. At night, take one of your civilians on a mission to scavenge through a set of unique locations for items that will help you stay alive.

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishment Interrogation Techniques showcased in a raw gameplay video
Be witty and get stuff done as Sherlock Holmes
Not content with merely examining crime scenes, Sherlock Holmes in Crimes & Punishments – your new investigation game for PS4®, PS3®, Xbox One®, Xbox 360® and PC from Frogwares coming on September 30th - showcases a unique set of skills aimed at cataloguing facts about a person by their appearance, which may raise doubts about their claims and stories.
Re-evaluating clues gained from interrogations, physical evidence, observations and crime-scenes will unlock further paths of deduction, and lead to more clues and dialogue options. During interrogation scenes, you’ll be able to interject, and support your argument by selecting the piece of evidence that supports your case. Successfully doing so will leave the suspect astounded, and they’ll soon crumble in the face of Holmes’ skills, and your wits, eventually revealing more information about the case.
Across six unique cases, you’ll meet up to five suspects per investigation, all of whom could logically be connected to the crime, enough to have committed it. Each suspect can be convicted, and in some cases suspects can be convicted together, so it’s imperative that detectives develop an understanding of the characters and their backgrounds to supplement information gained from examining crime scenes, in order to build the clearest picture from which to deduce the most likely culprit.
Crimes and Punishments is coming to the PS4®, PS3®, Xbox One®, Xbox 360®, and PC, on September 30th.
About Crimes & Punishments Crimes & Punishments marks the most important stage in the Sherlock Holmes series. The decision by Frogwares studios to switch from the in-house engine to the Epic Unreal Engine 3 enables a much richer, more immersive and detailed rendering of both the environments and characters.
But the change of game engine has not only improved the graphics; new investigation techniques have been developed and the game can now offer 14 game mechanics. From the opening of each of the six investigations up to the arrest of the culprits and the moral dilemmas faced by the players, the new game mechanics convey the feeling of BEING Sherlock Holmes. Players will therefore be able to exploit the incredible gifts and talents for which he is renowned, such as his ability to guess the details of an individual's life simply by observing them, or to imagine and reconstruct a past event by studying the key features of a crime scene.
