One of the more exciting revelations from this year’s E3 was Ubisoft’s For Honor, an action game with a heavy sword-fighting focus. Since then, the publishing giant has been active in marketing the title, exhibiting it in various conventions and expos, as well as a closed alpha event, and they have recently published a blog post concerning all the feedback they’ve received. The company stressed a desire for For Honor to have "long-term appeal," and underlined the importance of an "easy-to-learn/hard-to-master experience."

Ackk Studios, the indie team behind action-RPG Two Brothers, is currently hard at work on their next project, YIIK: A Postmodern RPG. Set in 1999, the game draws inspiration from the EarthBound/Mother series, and particularly from the cancelled EarthBound 64. YIIK also has a heavy focus on nihilistic themes, and much of its dialog sets a somber tone. Ackk Studios has released a cutscene from the game titled "Growing Up, College, and Nihilism," and you can check it out by clicking below.

Beyond: Two Souls pushed boundaries when it came to motion capture technology, but it wasn't without its fair share of graphical hiccups. Quantic Dream's story-driven title originally ran at 720p on PlayStation 3, and it struggled mightily in maintaining a steady frame rate, frequently dipping below 25 frames per second.

Like many other popular titles from the past generation, Beyond: Two Souls is getting a remastered version on PlayStation 4. Digital Foundry went hands-on with the new version of the game, and they've created a comparison video that shows how it has improved from its last-gen form. This includes a steady frame rate (although it's still only 30 frames per second) and a resolution of 1080p, as well as improved lighting. You can check out the comparison video by clicking below.

In a new trailer titled "Bring It," publisher Deep Silver breaks down some of the exciting game modes in Mighty No. 9. You can check it out by clicking below.

An analysis from InfoScout used contrasted data from October video game purchases by 2,364 individuals with the purchases of 1,020 Black Friday shoppers. The results aim to show us how Black Friday affected the buying habits of millennials (defined herein as ages 18–35) and middle aged fans (36–55). Up from 40 percent in October, PlayStation stole 48 percent of Black Friday sales among millennials—a demographic that InfoScout notes is known to possess more fickle notions of brand loyalty than the generation before.

Square Enix recently announced the Minecraft-inspired Dragon Quest Builders as a PlayStation exclusive (available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Vita), and it looks like Sony is putting a lot of faith in the game. Sony and Square Enix have announced that they are teaming up to launch two special edition PlayStation 4 models for the game — one jet black and one glacier white.

Additionally, these consoles will include a hard drive bay cover, an original PlayStation 4 theme, and an original PlayStation 4 sleeve all based on Dragon Quest Builders. These special consoles will be available for ¥37,480, or around $305. Unfortunately, there's still no word on a Western release at this time.

Square Enix surprised us earlier this year by announcing Dragon Quest Builders — a PlayStation-exclusive title that blends Minecraft-esque game mechanics with the world of Dragon Quest. As in Minecraft, you'll be able to gather materials to create with, but this option won't be freely available from the beginning.

Dragon Quest Builders is spread out over several large continents, and Free Build Mode is unlocked after you've completed the story on the first continent. This will apparently take about ten hours if you just proceed through the story, and even longer if you stray from it. Throughout the game you'll collect blueprints, and once Free Build Mode is unlocked, you can construct buildings and share them (up to a size of 24 x 24 x 16 blocks) with other players on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, or Vita.

We've seen everything from flaming sword recreations to cat cosplays all from the world of Fallout 4. And while all that is great, this Dogmeat cosplay has to take the cake. It was put together by Imgur user WexyLex and his German Shepard, Sarge. The costume is modeled after the Light Armor you can acquire for Dogmeat in Fallout 4.
