Dragon Age: Inquisition

BioWare have obviously never said this publicly, but the scuttlebutt has always been that "Dragon Age II" suffered from publisher EA's meddling and lack of support, funds, and development time. There'll be no such whispers surrounding "Dragon Age: Inquisition," though: during Gamescom, BioWare and Electronic Arts announced a Fall 2014 release for the upcoming role-playing game.

THIS IS PART OF MTV MULTIPLAYER'S 10 MOST ANTICIPATED VIDEO GAMES OF THE FALL! CHECK 'EM ALL OUT HERE.

Robert Kirkman's zombie survival yarn became something of cultural hit the last few years transitioning from graphic novels to a hit TV show and eventually spawning two video games. Of course the only game worth mentioning here is Telltale Games' critically acclaimed "The Walking Dead."

The phenomenally popular adventure game featuring the gut-wrenching story of loss and survival during the zombie aftermath set a bar high enough to make any dev sweat about what to do for their next game. Fortunately, Telltale kept it cool under the collar and chose another comic property suiting their sense of style, storytelling, and gameplay perfectly. "Fables" -- a comic created by writer Bill Willingham about fairy tales and nursery rhymes crossing over into a New York City full of danger and intrigue would be their next big thing as another episodic adventure. While, I was more familiar with the stories around TWD, my comically versed friends were all abuzz about when this next installment was announced -- here's why you should care about "The Wolf Among Us."

The-bureau-Base_Ops

2K Marin's third person shooter based around the classic strategy game XCOM has had its ups and downs since that rocky E3 2010 debut. What many veteran agents saw as a slight to the franchise by taking a beloved RTS framework and "dumbing it down" for the brain-dead shooter crowd turn out to be a boon for both genre fans. RTS loyalists received the fantastic critically acclaimed "XCOM: Enemy Unknown" and shooter fans would get their fix as well. As a bonus to both sides, 2K was going to add in a bit of back story to flesh out the XCOM brand and give it a bit more flavor. What "The Bureau" brings to the table is a sort of melding of both worlds -- a richer, story focused shooter propped up by the infamously live and let die decision making skeleton from the RTS side of things. So can "The Bureau: XCOM Declassified" seamlessly blend RTS and TPS elements smoothly or should this file be blacklisted forever?

It should come as no surprise that Infinity Ward has not reinvented the wheel with the multiplayer in "Call of Duty: Ghosts." At a glance, this is the same, addictive and fast-paced multiplayer that has sucked in many, many players since "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare." After all, if that same wheel keeps scooping up cash and keeping people playing year after year, why change it? Well, instead of completely reinventing the thing, Infinity Ward has basically said "Okay, this wheel works pretty darn well. Let's just put some awesome playing cards in the spokes, add some LED lights, and figure out how to make this thing more awesome. While we weren't treated to the full multiplayer at the reveal, we did get to play a decent chunk of it, and we're happy to report that yes, this wheel is indeed more awesome.
