“No man who meets The Hunt returns to this world.”
…And then a demon covered in spikes with a skull for a face just smiles at the camera. Your nightmares for the next two weeks have been brought to you by this “World Premiere” trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which has been brought to you by Keanu Reeves in 47 Ronin.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is in development at CD Projekt RED and will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One next year.
“Robes. Robes are always a bad sign.”
Garret, the star of Eidos Montreal’s Thief, doesn’t have a high opinion of cultists performing arcane rituals. And I can’t say I blame him. But you’ll definitely have a high opinion of this “World Premiere” trailer for the game, which debuted at last night’s VGX Awards.
Thief will be published by Square Enix on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on February 25, 2014. The game will also be available for the PS3 and Xbox 360 on the same date.
Double Fine’s Broken Age already had a pretty extensive voice cast (including Jack Black, Wil Wheaton, and Harmonix co-founder Alex Rigopulos) before the release of the “World Premiere” trailer at this year’s VGX Awards. But now we know that Elijah Wood, who is apparently a huge fan of point-and-click adventure games, will provide the voice of Shay, Broken Age’s main character. According to Tim Schafer, the decision to bring Wood aboard was originally worked out through Twitter.
The first half of Broken Age will be released through Steam’s Early Access program in January.
This might be the third or fourth “World Premiere” trailer for South Park: The Stick of Truth at the Spike TV Video Game Awards/VGX Awards. But if you’ve ever wanted Cartman to give you a 90-second tutorial on how to fart, this trailer’s for you.
South Park: The Stick of Truth is in development at Obsidian Entertainment and will be released for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on March 4, 2014.
The first ever VGX Awards (formerly known as the Spike TV Video Game Awards) were held last night and the best games of 2013 were once again crowned by GameTrailers.com’s Geoff Keighley (with an assist from Community‘s Joel McHale). The general consensus among the Internetatti is that the show still doesn’t know what it wants to be and that the “intimate studio setting” (and McHale) made the whole thing feel a bit bizarre. But what about the award winners?
In what is sure to be the first of many, Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V was named “Game of the Year” by the VGX Advisory Council. Rockstar’s crime saga also took home “Best Soundtrack.” But, the developer missed out on “Studio of the Year” honors. That award went to Naughty Dog for their work on The Last of Us. Their apocalyptic story was also awarded “Best PlayStation Game.” “Best Voice Actor” (Troy Baker), and “Best Voice Actress” (Ashley Johnson). Other multiple award winners include indie sensation Gone Home (“Best PC Game” and “Best Independent Game”) and BioShock Infinite (“Best Shooter” and “Best Song in a Game”).
A complete list of this year’s winners, including the remaining genre awards, “Best Xbox Game” (the surprising Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons), and “Best Nintendo Game” (Super Mario 3D World), can be found after the break. (more…)

Capcom has continued to narrow the release window for Ultra Street Fighter IV. To ensure everyone has enough time to practice ahead of Evo 2014, the publisher plans to release the PS3 and Xbox 360 upgrade download in early June. The update has been priced at $14.99 (€14.99) and can be applied to Super Street Fighter IV or Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition.
If you’d prefer a boxed copy of the game, the retail disc version of Ultra Street Fighter IV for the PS3 and Xbox 360 will be released in August. The retail edition will be priced at $39.99 (€39.99).
Finally, PC players that want to join the fight will also have to wait until August as both the upgrade download ($14.99/€14.99) and full-game download ($29.99/€29.99) will be released at the same time.
Ultra Street Fighter IV will also be available in limited quantities as an arcade cabinet and Capcom has more details about arcade edition location tests at the Capcom-Unity blog.
