After a flurry of Battlefield 4 teaser videos, EA has finally dropped in the real deal. A lengthy 17 minute long gameplay video that showcases some of the finest visuals and sound I’ve seen in a game until now.

The video starts off with the now familiar in medias res format, where you see a scene and then it tracks back in the past to show you how you landed up there. You can’t tell much about the story, other than a bunch of soldiers trying to survive an attack who then later end up at the bottom of a lake inside a car. Read more »

by 33 comments

The original Temple Run hit iOS back in 2011. The game was an instant success, reaching the top of charts around the world. It arrived on the Play Store last year and saw similar response from Android users as well.

It was also last year when Imangi released Temple Run: Brave, a variation of the original game made in collaboration with Disney for their movie ‘Brave’. It featured a new character and different level design but was essentially the old game in a new wrapper. But earlier this year, Imangi released Temple Run 2 that brought with it completely redesigned visuals and some new gameplay mechanics.

Now, shortly after the release of Temple Run 2, the developers have released Temple Run: Oz. Like Temple Run: Brave before it, Temple Run: Oz is based on an upcoming Disney movie, ‘Oz the Great and Powerful’ and carries forward the visual and gameplay enhancements from Temple Run 2 but with new level designs keeping with the theme of the movie. Let’s see how this latest installment has turned out. Read more »
