Medieval II: Total War Zelda mod too cool to pass up

hyrule battle

I’ve been seeing this around the internet, but it is way too cool to not share. A new mod for Medieval II: Total War will wake us into the wars fought the world of Hyrule. That’s right, a Legend of Zelda mod, now in its 3.0 version the mod allows to take control of 19 different factions all ranging from several of series different races. So the Zoras, Gorons, Dekus and the Kokiri are available to play as. The most striking aspect however is the mods, very grim trailer. Blood stained battleĀ  fields and dead protagonists aren’t exactly what you think when you thinkĀ Zelda. The mods campaign does use actual events from the recent Hyrule Historia book. Needless, to say they’re definitely taking from some of the darker moments in Hyrule history. You check it out in the trailer below and if you’re looking to play you can download the mod here.

Grand Theft Auto V looking great in new gameplay video

Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V’s September 13 release date isn’t very far off, but with a recent gameplay trailer it’s hard not to feel immense anticipation. Rockstar’s most recent trailer details some the games deep and customizable mechanincs, including how the three main protagonists will be controlled.

To start, the game shows off some impressive the impressive visuals we’ve been seeing for the past few months. You think it would get old at this point, but I still find my self amazed at how gorgeous this games looks and how badly I want to explore every inch of it. More importantly, the trailer reveals how Grand Theft Auto V’s three protagonists will be used in the game. Players will be able to switch from characters in missions to offer support to the other characters. In one scene we see Michael rappeling into an office building and kidnapping an individual. With two guns on him as he takes the man hostage, we see a small portrait of all three characters pop up in the lower-right hand corner of the screen. The player quickly selects Franklin, who is standing on top a roof of a building across from Michael. With sniper rifle in hand, Franklin pops the two gun men and Michael can make his escape. You can also switch between the three characters in their off time see what each of them is up to that particular day.

The trailer also shows how you can plan each heist your would be thieves can pull off. You can hire other individuals to work for you to create distractions or simply act as get aways. You’ll have access to floor plans and other helpful intel so you can plan out each mission in which ever style you prefer. For the most part plans will range from being subtle and smart, using gas to knock out witnesses and guards, or reckless, smashing the doors down holding everyone up.

With all that money in hand you might be wondering what a criminal can do with it in Los Santos. You can spend it on tattoos and cars frivolously, or you take bigger risks in the stocks or Los Santos ever growing real estate market. There are also a number of activities you can participate in if you’re interested. Hunting, scooba diving and even a little bit of golfing to cool your itchy trigger finger.

If all of this sounds interesting, you can enjoy the full trailer following the link.

Burgoon Entertainment’s, isometric action game has you take control of software engineer, Tom, against a host of demon spawn from hell. With the help of some useful weapons and a powerful demon arm. Tom will need to battle his way through the Void and Hell in order to put an end to their monstrous rampage. As you continue fighting your way down, players will be able to upgrade Tom’s weapons and his demon arm to deliver more powerful shots and different demon powers. In addition, creator Sean Burgoon, is also thinking about adding temporary upgrades such a speed boosts, shields and double damage of the sort.

Tom vs. The Armies of Hell is also focused on its story. While not in a highly emotional sense, it does look to offer some really off-beat and dark humor as you play through the game.

The game is still in very early development stages and is currently being funded via Kickstarter. The game sounds interesting enough and looks to provide some old fashioned isometric, action gaming while still offering a humorous story and pure fun. There is no release date, but PC, Linux and Mac gamers will be available platforms when it does release. In the meantime, head on over to Tom vs. The Armies of Hell for more info and some early videos. Enjoy the cinematic trailer below
