Deep Silver is publishing the new Saints Row game, and boy does it look crazy. The latest trailer has been unveiled to correspond with the big Electronic Entertainment Expo, and it is insane.

The President of the United States of America will fight evil in the nude with brand new superpowers. The most epic, dramatic Saints Row yet will star Benjamin "Motherfucking" King, the President, Pierce Washington, Kinzie Kensington, Shaundi, Shaundi (that's right, they went there), Asha Odekar, and a new star: Keith David, as Keith David.

Saints Row IV is coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on August 20th in North America, August 22nd in Australia, and August 23rd in Europe.

Despite NBA 2K13 being a launch title for the Wii U, it seems the series is not going on the Nintendo route this year.

Jason Argent, senior VP of sports operations at 2K Sports, has confirmed there is no Wii U version of the upcoming entry in the NBA 2K series. The following is the reason given by Argent.

"[2K] didn't want to take resources away from building on the other platforms."

NBA 2K14 is coming to Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 1st. 2K Sports has also confirmed the game will be coming to both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The two next-generation versions will be launch titles for their respective consoles.

Shortly following the rumor of Microsoft paying third parties to withhold games on PlayStation 4, another new tidbit has been heard through the grapevine.

One Redditor claims he saw Microsoft workers monitoring the gaming subreddit and making positive posts on the company's new console: the Xbox One. Although his original post, along with many others, has been deleted, a NeoGAF user has recorded the full story. We don't know if some accounts got deleted, but the majority of the discussion has been removed from the site. Take a look right here of the abandoned amusement park.

Here's what the Reddit user said.

"Just thought I'd share something interesting that happened to me this week. I work for a marketing firm in Redmond that has a contract with Microsoft. I can't say specifically which division, but suffice to say we are not involved with the Xbox.

We had a pretty large meeting this week at one of the offices off 31st and, because this was the first time we had visited the Microsoft complex, we got a tour of some of the buildings. It's a quite amazing place. We won't the only visitors either; there were contractors from quite a number of other firms visiting, and presumably meeting to discuss projects related to our own."

Platinum Games is already bringing Bayonetta 2 and The Wonderful 101 to Wii U later this year, but the company may have much more in store for E3.

Creative Producer JP Kellams has sent out an E3 tease over Twitter. There are no hinted franchises, just general hype building. Kellams says that "if you are a Platinum Games fan next week is going to be awesome."

This could just mean some more The Wonderful 101 gameplay, or possibly our first real look at Bayonetta 2. However, we could be seeing a brand new game get revealed. It could be Metal Gear Rising 2 or even a sequel to MadWorld. We just don't know! Only time will tell what Platinum is teasing. (I personally want to see them work on Star Fox.)

The Nazis beat everyone to the bomb in this alternate universe. Wolfenstein: The New Order takes place in a world different from the one we know. The Third Reich has conquered the planet in this entry, including powerful metropolises such as New York City and London. The year is 1960, and the only man freedom can rely on is B.J. Blazkowicz.

This is one fantastic setting for the revived franchise. It's frightening to see the Swastika covering Washington D.C., yet darkly humorous. The depiction of Nazis on Abbey Road is a chuckle-worthy parody on the Beatles, yet it also creates the dark atmosphere of the game. It's one helluva exposition, and I can't wait to see more.

Ubisoft, the French publisher behind the upcoming Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Rayman Legends, launched a game last generation for PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube, and PC called Beyond Good & Evil. While met with a lot of praise from those who played it, it never really caught on as a "big" title. However, it did manage to accrue a cult following in the years following its release, eventually receiving an HD port on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network in 2011. Somewhere along the line, a sequel to Beyond Good & Evil was announced. Since then, fans of the original have eagerly awaited news regarding a Beyond Good & Evil 2, which has unfortunately been scarce to non-existent.

However, a recent picture posted to Ubisoft's Facebook page may be the glimmer of hope Beyond Good & Evil fans have been waiting for. Featuring a quote from the in-game character Pey'j, who looks like a humanoid boar, the picture was posted on May 31st with a few tell tale words teasing the potential for Beyond Good & Evil 2's re-entry into the spotlight:

"We’re a bit busy prepping for E3. Time to call in some reinforcements. (Points if you remember this classic character!)"

DuckTales Remastered is currently being developed by WayForward. The game will be distributed by Capcom this summer. The downloadable title is coming to PSN, Xbox Live, Nintendo eShop, and PC. With a massive nostalgia factor and the platforming promise of WayForward, the title is shaping up to be something fantastic.

To get bodies ready, Capcom has released a special E3 trailer for the game. Launchpad describes the terrifying Transylvania territory for Scrooge McDuck. The postcard trailer acts as a tourism video of the area, naming the marvels of the spooky mansion.

Remember back at the PlayStation 4's official announcement press-conference when Square Enix made that incredibly vague Final Fantasy "announcement," essentially stating "wait until E3 for actual information"? Well, it looks like we might be getting some news a tiny bit earlier, as the hugely well known Japanese publisher and JRPG developer behind the Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest franchises has revealed plans for a pre-E3 Q&A session with Square Enix's senior vice president Shinji Hashimoto regarding "the future of Final Fantasy." The news came via an invitation received by Polygon for the event.

The event is scheduled for 12:00 to 1:00 PM (EDT) on Tuesday June 11th. How openly "the future of Final Fantasy" will be discussed during the Q&A is unknown, but we're sure to have some leftover gaps filled in during the publisher's "Square Enix Presents" show, which they've scheduled during E3 2013.

IGN has confirmed that the free-to-play shooter Warframe, being worked on by Dark Sector developer Digital Extremes, will be making its way to PlayStation 4, and as a launch title no less. In an announcement interview with the game's creative director, Steve Sinclair, IGN also managed to get a bit of insight into the concepts and ideas guiding Warframe's development as well as the team's experience working with Sony.

As far as the big picture is concerned, Sinclair says, laughing, Warframe is "a big, messy space ninja game," also mentioning that the game isn't so much about competition, as shooters traditionally are, as it is about cooperation. Sinclair also spoke on the inspiration for the project, saying that he wanted to make "Something with a smaller team, something we were very passionate about," and how that yearning turned into the formerly PC-exclusive Warframe released earlier this year.

Per its recently fantastic reputation with indie developers, apparently Sony was actually the one to reach out to Digital Extremes about the possibility of bringing Warframe to the PlayStation 4.

Geoff Keighley is a big name in video game journalism; he produces content for GTTV and G4, as well as writing and performing other tasks. As a result of this status, he gets access to a lot of great content before the rest of us...and he often proceeds to tease us with it.

In a recent tweet, Mr. Keighley told us about something (presumably a game) that he saw recently. Here's what he had to say on the topic:

Saw something truly incredible last night that will be a big E3 debut. Even with all the DRM drama, next week will deliver some GREAT games.

The mention of DRM drama immediately draws my attention towards the Xbox One. This week's news has not been kind to the console, bring DRM to the forefront of many gamers' minds. Could Geoff be discussing a Xbox One title? Or perhaps he was just referencing current events? You decide!

It's truly amazing how much fans can do for a game or a series, from simply spreading the word and expanding a game's range of players to drawing amazing art in tribute to a game.

When it comes to keeping in touch with a series' fans, the creators of the Grand Theft Auto series, Rockstar Games, do not disappoint; they have been releasing trailers, new information, and up-to-date screenshots featuring detailed depictions of scenes from the newest game in the series. Instead of simply waiting on the sidelines for Grand Theft Auto V to come out, a fan took it upon himself/herself to put together a map of what they believe Los Santos, the main setting for the game, will look like.

Two days ago, Sony released a magnificently whimsical game play trailer for Puppeteer, an upcoming platformer exclusive to PlayStation 3. And at the end of that trailer were the words "Pre-order now to get the theatrical pack!" Well, Sony detailed just what's going to be in that pack via the PlayStation Blog. Here's the feature list, most notably containing the game's entire soundtrack:

"The Original Soundtrack of Puppeteer: By world-famous composer Patrick Doyle.
Exclusive PSN Avatars: Kutaro, the Moon Witch, and the villain we all love to hate, the Moon Bear King
Dynamic Custom Theme: Featuring hand-drawn concept art from all seven acts of Puppeteer."

Japan Studio's Puppeteer is looking to be one of the year's most interesting titles, and with a PlayStation 3 exclusive release set for September 10th at suggested retail price of just $40.00, we won't have to wait too much longer to get our hands on it. Who's looking forward to this unique little platforming adventure?

E3 2013 is only a few days away and every company is getting their bodies ready. SEGA is among the crowd, as the publisher has just unveiled their lineup of games for the show.

Sonic Lost World is an easy confirmation. The Wii U exclusive is set to wow, with a solid reveal and great fan reaction getting the ball rolling.

Castle of Illusion will also make a return at E3 this year. The remake is overflowing with nostalgia, and many players can't wait to relive the memories, or, in the case of the young ones, experience a classic.

Total War: Rome II is shaping up to be a fantastic strategy game. SEGA is eager to show off the game at the show.

Company of Heroes 2 is set to steal the show. The game was originally planned to be published by THQ, but the company met a tragic end. The game releases at the end of this month, so SEGA is giving the title one final push.

Wrapping up the list is The Cave. The Double Fine title released back in January on PC, eShop, PSN, and Xbox Live.

That's SEGA's E3 lineup, although there is certainly room for surprises. What do you think? Sound off in the comments below.

With all the new footage of Sonic Lost World, SEGA has also confirmed some news regarding the 3DS version of the game. Dimps, a developer closely associated with the Sonic franchise, has been given the task of developing the handheld title. This game is getting unique content not available on the Wii U.

Dimps has worked on the Sonic Advance games and helped develop Sonic Unleashed and Sonic the Hedgehog 4. They even did some work on Super Street Fighter IV!

The 3DS version has different level designs built for a smaller screen and less advanced hardware. New content can be unlocked by linking the game to the Wii U version. There is also an exclusive versus mode, allowing for competition between up to four different players.

What do you think of the Dimps domination? Sound off in the comments.
