Mortal Kombat X (Gameplay Trailer)

Today, Mortal Kombat X premiered an all-new gameplay trailer for its next-gen system release on April 14th.

It highlights a variety of characters, most notably Kung Lao who is the most badass of the ones shown… like, wow… and Kitana who closes it out with a fatality you gotta see. As a fan of the franchise, it’s easy to see the increase in gore, graphics, and special moves above compared to the strong memories of Mortal Kombat II, for example. Lookin’ forward to continuing my reign as #TeamGowhere Mortal Kombat Champion with X this spring 😀

Grand Theft Auto V: First Person Experience

A big new feature for the upcoming GTAV on next-gen consoles is the First Person Experience. Longtime GTA gamers may not immediately vibe with the change after the 3rd person views that separate the game from other first-person players, but after watching the all-new trailer debuting the gameplay, I’m all for change too. Simply put, this is really cool… yet I’d imagine, even harder to control vehicles at high speeds. Will prolly take some getting used to, at least.

Grand Theft Auto V will be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 18th. Coming January 27th to PC.

Wiz Khalifa & John Cena “All Day” x “Breaks”

Wiz & John Cena?! The WWE 2K15 Soundtrack brings em together as Taylor Gang’s leader links up with the wrestler/sometimes rapper. Not one, but TWO tracks, too. “All Day” features some dominant Yeezus-esque drums with “Breaks” featuring a little more harmonizing. Both fitting for the pump up mood you’re undoubtedly looking for when you play a wrestling game. WWE 2K15 drops in a week: October 21st.

NBA 2K Through the Years

NBA 2K15 dropped yesterday, which if you’re a reader of this site, you probably already know, have it, and you’re taking a quick break to catch up on your Gowhere now 😀

To continue their great marketing of the game, 2K co-signed and shared this new video above of ‘NBA 2K Through the Years’. Self-explanatory, really. Take the 15 (!) year journey of the game, and the league in general. And because I had multitudes of thoughts… here are them in running diary form.

0:37: Vitaly Potapenko sighting! Whoa, save somethin’ for later…
0:41: A.I. and a sensei? Wasn’t he another video game character in a crossover style commercial?!
1:01: Kobe dribbled in a complete circle, then flushes it. Classic video game wackiness.
1:07: Nash to Nowitzki. Nostalgia has certainly set in by now.
1:41: Ben Wallace and Tracy Morgan in a commercial together?!
2:04-2:11: The new feature of 2K6? Sweat.
2:24: Idea: Those Cavs throwbacks need to come back this year. (With a matching headband, LeBron.)
2:25: Jamal Crawford doing what he’s best known for… a 360 AND-1!
2:37: Francisco Elson sighting!
2:47: Vince Carter between the legs in-game dunk + Yung Joc motorcycle celebration.
3:03: Sasha Pavlovic SPLASH!
3:41: The origin of the Kobe-D. Rose MEME /still stings.
4:00: “Are you ready?”
4:21: Eddie House sighting!
4:44: Drake & MJ… slight step up from Big Ben & Tracy Morgan, 2K.
5:01: Future teammates. 2K called it.
5:54: K LOCK69 sighting!
6:39: These crowds, man.
6:47: YAKKEM!
7:11: Pharrell & Pharrell’s Hat are in the game this year, ICYMI.
7:32: These crowds again.
7:35: Birdman beard + D Rose 5. The details are crazy.
7:48: Hold up, hold my phone!
8:10: Idea: Use real parks for the excellent new MyPark feature.
8:36: Aight, first I gotta get a PS4. Then, I gotta get 2K15.

What’s your favorite moment of this video?

NBA 2K15 Momentous Trailer

The all-new (and I think last) trailer for NBA 2K15 has dropped this morning and it’s a doozy of a look at all of today’s stars in action on the beautiful next-gen systems. Some highlights: a quick look at LeBron & Kyrie, Jabari Parker on the Bucks, Chandler Parsons on the Mavs, Rubio throwing oops to Zach LaVine and Andrew Wiggins, a perfectly done ‘Melo pull up 3 and ensuing celebration, Iman Shumpert’s “Worst Behaviour” 3 celebration, and of course cover boy and MVP Kevin Durant at the beginning and end. Watch out for all of those and more above (all set to ATCQ “Scenario”).

BONUS: The MyCareer has an all-new storyline in which you’re undrafted and have to grind to get on a team in January and play well enough going into free agency right off the bat. Love the constant innovation and small details 2K is adding (and this is just a small preview).

Also worth watching: James Harden on last night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers as Seth puts the all-new 2K Face Scan to the test and becomes teammates with James on the Rockets. So funny (and awesome).
