The Last of Us is Naughty Dog's Next Game

Another game that was revealed at this year's VGA Awards was a game named The Last of Us.  Created by Uncharted developer Naughty Dog, The Last of Us looks to be an interesting departure from their most recent series which focused on archaelogical adventure.  The new game is a post apocalyptic story where it appears some sort of virus has wiped out the world's population.  The trailer focuses on a middle aged man and a young girl as they attempt to survive in what's called their "daily routine."  It already feels much darker, but still strongly character driven.

Epic's New Franchise, Fortnite, Looks to be Very Co-Op, Very Different

Last night at the VGA Award, Epic Game's Cliff Bleszinski revealed a trailer for their new game called Fortnite.  From the trailer we see a group of folks working together to gather supplies and then use those supplies to fortify a base during the day.  As night quickly approaches so do the strange creatures which the survivors must defend their base from.  It's a bit like a tower defense game and a bit like Minecraft.

Red Dead Redemption Sweeps VGAs - It's Gotta Be the Co-Op

Red Dead Redemption made a killing at the Spike TV Video Game Awards last night, bringing home the prizes for Best Original Score, Best DLC (Undead Nightmare), and Game of the Year. As insignificant as that may be to a lot of gamers, it sends a clear message to the industry: co-op is teh good. Awards won by Halo: Reach, Call of Duty: Black Ops, DJ Hero 2, Rock Band 3, and a special mention of Portal 2 all served the same purpose. Co-op is loud; co-op is proud.
