From The Trailer Park - Call of Cthulu

Set in the 1920s, this mystery/horror game follows private investigator Edward Pierce as he investigates mysterious deaths on Darkwater Island. His investigation leads him to dark, supernatural elements and cultists who worship the ancient god Cthulu, and causes him to slowly lose his sanity.

Interestingly, this is not a straightforward narrative but a roleplaying […]

What The King of YouTube’s Rise and Fall Can Teach Other Millennials

In my YouTubers You Should Be Watching post, I made brief mention of Felix Kjellberg aka PewDiePie, a hugely successful 27 year-old YouTuber from Sweden. How successful? He has the highest number of subscribers in YouTube history, currently at over 54 million and counting. If his viewers were a nation, they’d be the 27th […]

From The Trailer Park - Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (Live Action Trailer)

While the CoD games may be of varying quality, their live-action trailers (in which ordinary gamers and celebrities get to insert themselves into the game) are always a blast, and this one is no exception. The opening scene is also a great parody of the insanity of 2016 in general.

From The Trailer Park - LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Game was released yesterday; I’m definitely looking forward to […]

From The Trailer Park - We Happy Few (Gameplay Trailer)

A psychological thriller game about Arthur Hastings, a man living in a 1960s-style Utopia where everyone is happy, until one day he chooses not to take his government-mandated “Joy” pills and discovers he is actually living in a nightmarish dystopia, and goes on the run. This looks like a delightfully twisted mix of “Bioshock” […]

From The Trailer Park - Battlefield 1

The latest in the “Battlefield” series of war games takes place in WWI. Gameplay is described thusly:

“Fight your way through battles going from urban combat in a besieged French city to open spaces in the Italian Alps or frantic combats in the Arabic sand dunes. Experience large-scale battles as infantry or piloting vehicles […]

From The Trailer Park - Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

Oh yeah, CoD’s back, baby! And they’re going to space this time. Interesting.

Granted, recent entries in the Call of Duty series have caught some flack from fans for being of mediocre quality, but regardless this trailer is freaking awesome.
