Like many of you gamers out there, one of the games I am looking forward to most for the next generation consoles is Madden NFL 25. As video game savants drool over the possibilities of both PS4 and Xbox One EA continues to tease. Following up a trailer featuring the vast visual triumphs of Madden 25, this second trailer focuses on the improved AI.
One of the major upgrades is Player Sense which influences how a player might react in different surroundings. Another upgrade, War in the Trenches, is a mechanic that keeps both offensive and defensive lines even more aware of their assignments than previous iterations. Check out the video below.
Madden NFL 25 will be available November 15th for the PS4 and November 22nd for the Xbox One.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes features an original story crossing the entire Marvel Universe.

Players will chase down Cosmic Bricks as they travel across LEGO Manhattan and visit key locations from the Marvel Universe, such as Stark Tower, Asteroid M, a Hydra base, and the X-Mansion.
The game will be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita and PC. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will be coming in November.
2011's critically acclaimed and commercially successful rebirth of the Deus Ex franchise, "Deus Ex: Human Revolution", left one thing on the brain of many gamers and that was "What's next?" Well, two years later, Eidos Montreal has hinted at the franchises future via a blog-post from the head of Eidos Montreal, David Anfossi.
In a post titled "The Future Vision for Deus Ex", starts off with the the latest trailer for "Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut", in stores October 22 for PC, Wii U, PS3, and Xbox 360.
We will be releasing the game on October 22 (25 in PAL regions) on the Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Over the last 18 months, the team has been working very hard on the development of the Director’s Cut. With this edition, we gave the team the envious task of pushing the boundaries of innovation and creativity to explore something we believe will become a big part of the future of the franchise, the second screen experience. When the game launches, players will have the opportunity to experience Human Revolution in a new and unique way through SmartGlass, the PSVita and the Wii U GamePad.
The blog then continues and gets into the first bit of news regarding the franchises' future:
The concept behind Deus Ex: Universe is to create an ongoing, expanding and connected game world built across a generation of core games. It’s a commitment on our part to deliver meaningful content that expands the franchise on a regular basis and to deliver a deep conspiracy that will span several connected Deus Ex games, creating a more immersive and richer experience than ever before. Deus Ex: Universe will include PC and console games, but also additional Deus Ex games and experiences available in other media such as tablets, smartphones, books, graphic novels, etc... You might have seen the name pop up recently in the press – well this is what it’s all about.
I’m pleased to confirm that we are already into production of the starting point for Deus Ex: Universe with a new game for PC and next-generation consoles. We’re very excited about it at the studio and I wanted to let you know that most of the team behind Deus Ex: Human Revolution is already working hard on this new game. It took us four years to learn how to create a unique Deus Ex experience with Human Revolution and it was important for me to keep this knowledge within the franchise.
It appears we're not done with this fantastic world, and given the amount of care and detail that went into "Human Revolution", more is always a good thing. Anfossi leaves with a first-look at concept art from the upcoming Next-Gen game for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, which looks to be a much darker installment than the gorgeous renaissance-era beauty of "Human Revolution"; but the beauty of the future was only hiding the wide-spread corruption and moral darkness that was found in the hearts and souls of it's cast.
I want to leave you with a piece of concept art from our next-gen Deus Ex game that shows trans-humanism segregation, which is a backdrop to our vision for the next Deus Ex. It represents a "ghetto-city' voluntarily built in order to separate the classes. The people in this segregated class have reshaped their environment, nostalgic for their ideal of Cyber Renaissance. This dark and dystopian vision sets the tone for things to come in Deus Ex.

Superherohype has a trio of images from the upcomig Arkham Origins game and they reveal what looks to be a first for the Arkham series; exploring the actual Batcave. In Arkham Asylum Batman had built an emergency cave on the grounds should he ever need to use it. There is no confirmation that this will be a playable level or just part of the games cinematics, but it would be awfully foul to tease fan with a peek and not let them play inside.
There has been some teasing from Montreal Games that something exciting involving Arkham Origins will be revealed later this week as well.

Last week the UK version of the Arkham Origins collector's edition was revealed online and that left many fans in the US wondering if the same set would be released stateside. The answer came today as the North American, and for some reason Australian, version of the set has been announced. This set boasts a ton of extra items that are unavailable in the UK edition including a great electronic lights & sounds Joker sculpture.
I think it's a bit unfair for them to release two different versions because some fans will have to fork over extra cash for the eidtion not in their region. These huge editions usually don't interest me, but with all the great little items included here the $120 price tag may be worth it. Some of these features will only be available with the PS3 version.
