Only a couple of weeks after EVO, a full length trailer for Tekken 7 has been released. The trailer is chock-full of high quality CG production which unfortunately means that no actual gameplay is shown. However, the trailer does have a rather epic score.

Make the jump to watch the trailer!

Team Ninja Theory, the developers behind DmC: Devil May Cry, have announced via Twitter that they will "be announcing a new project soon, which is a new IP." That is all the information available for now on it, but apparently the studio has been busy, if their Twitter account is to be believed, and they are rather excited about it. The post preceding the announcement about the announcement is "Cannot wait to show off some new Ninja work. It's been too long," and a post from yesterday says "Keen as mustard Ninja workers are busy creating for announce time."

There are a lot of over-the-top grim and dark shooters out there, but what of the opposite? An over-the-top cutesy and colorful shooter? That's Lovely Planet, "a First Person Shooter Gun Ballet set in a cutesy abstract world. Jump and shoot your way through five worlds full of treacherous enemies with your trusty semi-automatic!"

Lovely Planet, from developer QUICKTEQUILA, has just been released onto Steam for Windows, Mac, and Linux at a price of $5.99 / £3.49 / € 4.39, and to coincide with the joyous day, the team's released a trippy, peppy launch trailer, showing the player traipsing and jumping through a surreal and colorful environment, shooting one of the happiest-looking weapons you've ever seen at some of the oddest enemies you've ever seen.

Naughty Dog has been immensely successful in recent years, but many high-ranking staff members (including the creative director of the Uncharted series and the lead art director for The Last of Us) left the company for other jobs earlier this year. Two more important staff members just jumped ship recently, as narrative design lead Taylor Kurosaki and lead game designer Jacob Minkoff have both announced that they have left Naughty Dog to take jobs at Call of Duty developer Infinity Ward. Infinity Ward also recently absorbed Neversoft, so their staff has grown considerably in recent weeks.

A hot new trend in the video game industry is pay as you play or subscription-based game streaming services. Sony has kicked off the open PlayStation Now beta which essentially allows players to rent games via streaming for a few hours, a few days, or even a few months at specific prices, and EA is offering a subscription-based streaming service for its games on Xbox One as well. There are even rumors that Nintendo is preparing a subscription-based service for the Wii U Virtual Console, but any hard evidence of this is yet to be seen. Is this the future of gaming? Read on for more thoughts on the matter, and join in on the discussion!

The developers at BioWare are hard at work on the upcoming Mass Effect game (and they will correct you if you call it Mass Effect 4), but they took some time out of their busy schedule to show up for San Diego Comic-Con 2014 last week. The team held a special panel for Mass Effect, showing off some new images, revealing new details, demoing some prototype footage, and even hosting a Q&A session. You can catch the whole panel by hitting the jump. Are you pumped to see what's next for Mass Effect?

The Pokémon Company has just announced a new date for the Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions concert series. Don't get too excited though, because they haven't added any new locations. 

On August 16th, there will be an additional concert at the Warner Theater in Washington, DC at 8 PM; if you missed out on getting tickets to the August 15th DC date, or you just weren't available on the 15th, this could be good news for you!

Any of you guys planning on attending one of the concerts in DC or Philadelphia?

Aliens: Colonial Marines created quite a bit of controversy when it launched last year. Developed by Gearbox Software, Colonial Marines was greatly hyped, and some impressive-looking trailers and gameplay demos generated a lot of interest in the game. However, the final product was less graphically impressive than what the trailers showed, and the game was plagued by glitches and unrefined AI. As a result, a class-action lawsuit was filed against both Gearbox and publisher SEGA, and that case has been ongoing for quite some time. 

A new development has just taken place, as Gearbox is now formally requesting that they be dropped from the lawsuit, placing the blame squarely on SEGA's shoulders. Additionally, they also believe its status as class-action should be dropped. Read on for their statement. 

A few weeks ago, we learned that Ubisoft's Rayman would be getting his very own trophy in the upcoming Smash Bros. titles; according to a Nintendo of Canada employee, however, Rayman may be featured in a more prominent role.

The folks over at Console Creatures were invited to Nintendo Canada headquarters to play a demo of Smash Bros. Wii U; during the character selection, Nintendo of Canada's Matt Ryan begins talking about playable characters that are not available in the demo, and he stated that Rayman was among them.
