The makers of Dead Island have released an interactive YouTube trailer for their next apocalyptic zombie survival game, Dying Light, set to be released January 27, 2015. The trailer plays sort of like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book, randomly presenting you with two courses of action at a time while you run around a shantytown, frantically climbing up and down buildings and defending yourself from groups of frenzied undead. In the event you make the wrong decision and get...well...eaten alive, you’ll be offered a tip such as, “avoid groups of zombies when you’re unarmed,” and can continue to play through the rest of the trailer.

At a hair over 25 minutes, it’s a pretty long trailer, but an engaging and exciting way to showcase the gameplay. Are you excited for Dying Light? Let us know what you think of the trailer in the comments below!

With The Order: 1886 just over two months away from release, Sony is really starting to ramp up the hype. They've released several trailers recently, and a large portion of the game was playable at the PlayStation Experience. However, their latest method of drawing attention to the game is a very different approach. A YouTube page called "BCO News" was quietly set up about a week ago, and a few hours ago it released a video with a news report detailing the discovery of a monstrous humanoid's skeletal remains.

We haven't done one of these in a while, have we? A good video game is built off of a few key features: gameplay, characters, enemy variety, and music. A great soundtrack can make or break any game for most people; this is especially true with character-action games. For example, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance wouldn't be nearly as enjoyable if there wasn't any of the rocking music playing in the background as you cut your way through waves of cyborgs, covering yourself in their electrolytes. If I had to name my favorite songs from a character-action game, I would definitely have to go with Stains of Time, I'm My Own Master Now, The Only Thing I Know For Real, and pretty much everything from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Oh, and Tomorrow is Mine from Bayonetta 2.

There's still a long wait for the full release of Halo 5: Guardians, but you'll be able to get a small taste very soon. The game's multiplayer beta goes live on December 29, but preview members will get even earlier access. If you're a preview member, you can start playing tomorrow. If you're not already pumped, Microsoft has released an exciting new trailer for the beta. Click below for a good look at the future of Halo!

YouTube star iJustine recently interviewed Shigeru Miyamoto and his ever loyal interpreter Bill Trinen. Naturally discussion turned to Zelda Wii U and the footage which was recently shown off at the Game Awards. Miyamoto was then asked about how his team approached the gameplay and story elements for a Zelda title with such a massive world. His answer will have any Zelda fan who loves exploration salivating.

With the second wave of Amiibo having been released this week, it's no doubt that a lot of people have purchased one and are currently enjoying all the features that they bring Nintendo's various games. Fortunately, for those of you who haven't been able to pick up any Amiibo from the newest wave, YouTuber ShiryuGL has made a video that will hopefully tide you over. The video shows off a couple of Wave 2 skins in the character select menu. However, most of the video shows a Mii dressed as Captain Falcon tearing up the track in Mario Kart 8. I'm pretty sure the only thing more satisfying than that is watching the Falcon Amiibo land a perfectly timed Falcon Punch in Smash.

What did you think of the video? What Wave 2 Amiibo do you want the most? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section!

In a recent interview with YouTube personality iJustine, Shigeru Miyamoto discussed the possibility of Zelda Wii U and Star Fox Wii U having Amiibo support. While no specific details were discussed, Miyamoto did confirm that Nintendo is planning of some form of compatibility with both titles. You can check out the full interview after the jump!

It's still a long wait until the release of Halo 5: Guardians, but those who bought Halo: The Master Chief Collection will get to go hands-on with a beta for the game on December 29. In the meantime, you can get a good look at the game right now! More footage has leaked from the game, and this time it shows off the energy sword and light rifle. Check it out by clicking below!

Ghosts 'n Goblins is one of those titles that has managed to retain its popularity—or perhaps notoriety—nearly thirty years after its initial release in arcades. In one of its more impressive looking forms, the title makes an appearance of sorts in the Unreal Engine 4, and it is impressive and moody. A group of eight students took a measly seven weeks to put together this remake of the age old sidescroller using the engine. Their results are shown off via screenshots and a short trailer. The animations are a bit clunky, but the world around them is astonishingly well-made.
