UPDATE: You can see the new trailer after the jump!

In today's E3 Press Conference, EA announced Dragon Age: Inquisition, the third game in BioWare's famous RPG series. The game is set in an open, interactive world that responds to your choices and decisions. Murrigan and other characters will also return.

Project Cars is a beautiful racing game coming to PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U in the second Quarter of 2014. The team also has plans for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One releases once they can get the necessary extra funding. The game is in development by Slightly Mad Studios, and the game's producer, Ian Bell, has expressed an intriguing idea for the game's Wii U version. As he mentions in an interview regarding Project Cars, Bell hopes that Slightly Mad Studios' racer can become "the Forza" equivalent for Wii U owners:

"On the Wii U, there's an opportunity there for us to 'be the Forza' on that platform. The Wii U is a great machine and the gamepad holds lots of possibilities so it's really exciting to bring a title like Project CARS to that platform and let Nintendo fans finally get their hands on a realistic car game." -- Ian Bell

Would Project Cars be enough to satisfy your racer cravings?

Two indie-friendly systems (that aren't selling well, but I digress) are getting a new game soon.

The independently developed title Forgotten Memories will be heading to PlayStation Vita and Nintendo's Wii U this summer. The game is being developed by Psychoz Interactive on the Unity Engine. It was originally an iOS exclusive project, but the developers have decided to move the game over to the two other systems.

Taking place in an isolated hospital, you control Rose Hawkins. Ms. Hawkins is an inspector solving a murder mystery while simultaneously searching for a small girl.

The game is supposedly a mix of the old and the new, taking horror elements from two different eras. It'll be interesting to see how this project pans out.

Here is the game's official site.

Dying Light was announced by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment a few weeks ago. The game is being developed by Techland. The gameplay involves a free-running parkour focus in a zombie-infested Rio de Janeiro. A sandbox-style overworld and upgradeable weapons add more to the mix, with a (supposedly) amazing day-and-night system running throughout the game.

With upgradeable weapons and zombies mixed with parkour, Dying Light seems like a cross between Mirror's Edge and Dead Island, but it sets itself apart in this new trailer. It's very dark, yet you can sense the freedom of the world.

The CG E3 trailer can be found after the jump.

Dying Light comes out on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2014.

Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii was given an original November 16, 2011 release date. The fan-made mod has finally come out. Better late than never, eh?

For the game's official launch trailer and tons of screenshots hit the jump!

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.

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.

IGN was teasing new Sonic Lost World footage earlier this week, and boy oh boy have the delivered.

The website has released a new look into the game, showing off three levels of the Wii U version of the game with full commentary. The 3DS counterparts to these levels have also been revealed, but with no voices narrating the scene.

The levels rotate 360 degrees in this game, opening up dozens of new pathways in every level. Updated controls allow players to send Sonic running seamlessly through a controlled platforming space. The parkour mechanics of the game are also shown off, with the blue blur hopping between walls and collecting hundreds of rings.

The words I'm saying may be a bit confusing, so it may be best to just hit the jump and watch the videos.

In a surprise video posted to Facebook, Reggie Fils-Aime of Nintendo of America has detailed the company's E3 2013 showing, answering a few of the questions people have posed. The most obvious one regards Nintendo's choice of not holding an E3 conference. Reggie's response is that Nintendo is always ready to surprise people. The answer was followed by a reveal of what Nintendo would be doing for E3.

On 7AM PT, June 11, Nintendo will be holding a Nintendo Direct instead of a conference, showing heavy-hitters like a new 3D Mario, Smash Bros., and Mario Kart. At 12PM PT, Nintendo will release developer interview videos. An hour later, a software recap video will become available, and a day-one wrap up video will join it that night. Apart from the day's timeline, Reggie announced that they will be simultaneously posting on their Twitter and Facebook accounts what is revealed during the Nintendo Direct and throughout the day, so anyone without access to a livestream can still learn everything without waiting for posts to appear.

Nintendo has made some controversial decisions in the last couple of weeks. Tell us in the comments if you think their new strategy will succeed.

Update: Square-Enix UK has uploaded an English version of the trailer- See it after the jump

I won't lie - I'm still shocked that Square Enix has actually decided to make a third in the Final Fantasy XIII series, even though it was initially announced quite a while back. It feels almost surreal to live in a world where a developer forges forth with a set of characters and plot lines despite their cultural status being near-universally panned.

Anyway, Square Enix has jumped the gun on their upcoming E3 show to give the world a new glimpse into the world of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. This time around, Lightning apparently switches outfits depending on the occasion and sports a nifty pair of sunglasses, and there appears to be quite a bit of melodrama going on. Unfortunately I don't speak Japanese and there are no subtitles, so basically all of it is lost on me.

Stay tuned for the inevitable English version, which will probably make the goings-on much clearer.

"A short time ago, in a galaxy far from far away, prepare for an astonishing adventure through history full of danger and full of artistry! At stake, were not just one boys fate, but the fate of the whole moon and the earth and the sun and galaxy! ...May the forceps -- I mean scissors -- be with you! -- Puppeteer E3 2013 Trailer

Puppeteer, a title in development by SCE Japan Studio, has just been given a new E3 trailer, showcasing the bombastically beautiful platformer's crazy-charming art-style, environments, and game play. Puppeteer's aesthetic is somewhat reminiscent of Junction Point's Epic Mickey, with a spectacular mix of dark and whimsical elements. The game play is in the 2.5-dimensional sidescroller genre, and looks to contain tons of high-energy platforming action.

The release date for Puppeteer is scheduled for September 10th, this fall, and, as it is a Sony-published game, it will be exclusive to the PlayStation 3. Click past the jump to see Puppeteer's awesome new game play trailer!

Konami's Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, sequel to 2010's Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, received a new gameplay trailer during Konami's Pre-E3 press conference. The trailer, clocking in at a hefty six minutes and twenty seconds, features a very subdued piano number at first, and then transitions into a bombastic orchestral song for the remainder of its time. Also worth noting is that the trailer confirms that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will be the last title in the Lords of Shadow series, saying, "The epic conclusion to the Lords of Shadow saga."

Anita Sarkeesian has certainly made herself known as of late. Her second video attacking the disempowerment of women in video games has recently hit the web, and it's attracted just as much hate as it has support. Joining the fray now is the Amazing Atheist, a vlogger who primarily focuses on -- shockingly enough -- religious issues. His critique of her video centers around a few main points and isn't forgiving in the slightest; I'm a bit unsure as to whether he has valid points or is guilty of the same confirmation bias he accuses Anita of.

I'm pretty involved in the YouTube Super Smash Bros. community, and for the last few years have met a lot of speculators and discussed the next installment in the franchise till I was blue in the face. Now that we're finally getting details, several of us YouTube Smashers decided to do a series of livestreams; we did our first yesterday, discussing which characters we think are most likely to be affected by news at E3. We have a lot of fun and hopefully I'll be able to host future streams on the site itself, but for now hit the jump to listen in!

Remember Me is an exciting new IP from Dotnod Entertainment and published by Capcom that looks quite promising. Remember Me is set in "Neo-Paris" in 2084, where a large corporation by the name of Memorise has created a device that allows users to upload their memories to the internet, allowing them to indirectly establish a surveillance state and gain near total control over the world's population.

Remember Me has typically been praised for its brilliant narrative and locale, though as an action-adventure platformer, some believe that it falls a little flat. Head past the jump to see the first eleven minutes of Remember Me, thanks to CVG, and be sure to let us know what you think!
