We finally get to see Dragon Age: Inquisition in action after knowing about the game for over a year. We've seen a bit of video and some screenshots previously, but now we have a release date and a bit of an idea of what exactly this game is going to be about. Head inside to see it for yourself.

As we head to the halfway point of this year, I decided to make another list of some more games to be on the lookout for. If you haven’t already seen my list of my most anticipated games of this year or the downloadable games to be on the lookout for, go check those out since I won’t be adding those games to this list. How about we get right to the point? Here are some more big budget and indie developed games to be on the lookout for this year.

I doubt anyone will be surprised that Wolfenstein: The New Order will have some censorship when it hits Germany next month. The only major change that is happening within the game is that the Nazis will instead be referred to as "The Regime." The Nazi symbol will also be taken down due to the sensitivity of the topic for the country. Pete Hines, a marketing executive for Bethesda, talked in an interview with GameSpot about this censorship before going on to discuss another controversy the game has on its plate—no multiplayer. For the most part, every shooter these days comes with some form of multiplayer or is all about the multiplayer. Wolfenstein: The New Order will be a single player only game.

The NPD report has arrived for March, bringing in some positive (and negative) news for the major hardware players out there. Sony enjoyed the overall hardware sales lead for the month, with the PlayStation 4 topping the charts. This despite the release of Titanfall, which gave Microsoft's Xbox One a nice boost (Titanfall also had the lead in retail sales, edging out Infamous: Second Son). Nintendo saw a rise in Wii U hardware sales compared to last year, while the 3DS saw a significant drop. Numbers inside.

PAX East 2014 enjoyed the expo’s largest turnout of indie developers to date, and marked the year where, in my mind, indies definitively trumped the AAA publishers. While many of the better known games had lines far longer than I could wait (I’m looking at you, Below), some of the show’s smaller titles left me the most excited.

Since the news of the remastered version of the Game of the Year award winning title, The Last of Us, was recently revealed, how about we keep the news train rolling with a possible release for the upcoming version? A multitude of retail outlets have possibly leaked the release date for the game. From Gamefly to Target and Best Buy, they all have the game scheduled to release on June 20th. Most expect it as a place holder until a real date is confirmed, so we can't say for sure if this is an official release date. Some people have noticed that if it is true, the game will be released a week after the big E3 event happens. The Last of Us: Remastered Edition will run apparently run at 1080p and have improved character models, lighting, and shadows. The game will also come with a director's commentary.

Boy, we have had a lot of news stories about resolution recently, haven't we? The recent rumors that the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will run at 900p on PlayStation 4 and 720p on the Xbox One means that we are not going to hear the end of this resolution debate anytime soon. The recent victim to this news fad is Ubisoft's Trials Fusion, the next game in the popular Trials franchise. A Ubisoft rep told Venture Beats that the game will run on the PlayStation 4 at native 1080p while the Xbox One version will run at 900p. The game is also coming to the Xbox 360 and PC and Ubisoft has confirmed that all versions of the game will be able to run at 60fps.

The game is available now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.

I think for awhile now we've known that the AAA industry seems to have a heavy focus on a select few genres, and among that, making games that seem to be all too similar. We've found plenty of avenues to place the blame for this, but chief among them is the AAA marketing teams. Jim Sterling, review editor of The Escapist, had a chance to sit down with developers and other such folks within the AAA industry to talk about this very issue.

Unfortunately, he can't say who he talked to because they would lose their jobs, but he has a very saddening yet very pointed quote that explains practically every issue we see with AAA games. Head inside.

One of the mostly critically acclaimed games of last year was Naughty Dog's The Last of Us. The horror-survival shooter won many gamers over with its story of Joel and Ellie, beautiful graphics, gorgeous music, and fantastic atmosphere. It did have some issues with some questionable AI opponents; a story, while good, was predictable at a lot of points; and some level design feeling stale. With the recent news that the game is getting a PlayStation 4 remastered edition, well...let's just say that some gamers were a little sour about this news instead of being excited. Some people think this is just a ploy to get more cash, some think that the original release was meant for the PlayStation 4, and there are a handful of other complaints and issues people have with this news. But one thing that is certain now, thanks to Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells, is that that the PlayStation 4 version of the game has been in development since June of last year when the game was released.
