Here’s A Brief Teaser For What Remains Of Edith Finch

Rejoice: Suikoden II Is Finally Coming To PSN
Sony has announced that the classic JRPG Suikoden II is coming to PS3 and PlayStation Vita. Not only that, it will be available next week.
I can already imagine the texts I’ll be getting from Jason about this.
“Kirk have you started Suikoden II yet?”
“Kirk, have you started it yet?”
“No excuses. Time to play it. Have you started?”
“Hey, just wondering if you’d started Suikoden II yet.”
“Hey buddy, how’s it going? Play Suikoden II.”

Bioware Knows The Real Reason You’re Playing Dragon Age
Here’s a fun clip from the Video Game Awards, where Bioware make a quick joke about why people really play Bioware games: the sex.
If it doesn’t make sense, here’s the context: Varric is a storyteller, and he writes books. One of his series is, well… smut. Trashy romance type stuff. The books are based on a certain Dragon Age party member who would probably flip if she knew what Varric is doing:

If you’ve played Dragon Age, this is particularly funny because Cassandra has a soft spot for smut, even though she haaates Varric. Good joke, Bioware!

This Is The First Footage Of Before, Facepunch’s Awesome-Looking Take On… Caveman Strategy?
OK, The Order: 1886 Looks Pretty Damn Cool
I wasn’t really sold on The Order 1886 before. Even after playing the upcoming PS4 shooter during this year’s E3, I left feeling like it was just another Gears of War-style gun-and-cover game. This trailer, though… well, I’m starting to change my mind. I totally want to hijack airships and assassinate nobles in steampunk Victorian London.

It’s being developed by Adam Orth’s studio Three One Zero, and is set to release in winter 2015. We got a new peek of it at The Video Game Awards, and it looks great.
Trey Parker’s Game Award Speech Was Pretty Great
This evening at The Game Awards, Trey Parker ran away with the Best Performance award thanks to his portrayal of a whole ton of characters in South Park: The Stick of Truth. Parker beat out Troy Baker (Shadow of Mordor), Adam Harrington (The Wolf Among Us), Melissa Hutchison (The Walking Dead), and, well, the one and only Kevin Spacey. Check out Parker’s speech above. Short and sweet.
