Saturday Video Round Up: August 9 – 15

The following post was submitted by Gamer Crash. See more trailers and news at GamerCrash.com!

With GamesCom now at an end and the giant trailer explosion a thing of last week, the industry has settled a bit. Unfortunately for us here at the Round Up, that means significantly less videos to give to you, dear reader. Still, lets make the best of it shall we? Here are the best videos from the past week, which are conveniently tucked away after the break below. For now, here’s just a brief taste.

The big trailer for me this week comes from Nintendo. With Super Mario Maker on the horizon, Nintendo has dropped a mega-sized 7 minute trailer showing off more of the game and all the new features that you didn’t already know about before hand. Seriously, there’s a lot of stuff this one is bringing to the table and I cannot wait.

The surprise hit of 2015 currently rests in the hands of Dying Light and developer Techland is bringing a whole new chapter to fans with The Following. Featuring a new and expansive area for player to kill zombies in, the biggest surprise may be the inclusion of a dune buggy than can also be upgraded. Come get a first look below.

I’ve also got new videos for Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Rainbow Six Siege, Mega Man Legacy Collection and so much more after the break, so come check out this week’s batch of trailers!

The full list of videos await you after the jump…

When Rare Replay comes out next week, it will join heralded company alongside the likes of Activision Anthology, Namco Museum, Capcom Classics, along with many others. That of the video game compilation.

Game compilations are nothing new, and, classically speaking, they’ve been a primary way that publishers have pushed out or re-introduced old content to new generations. But collections of older games by single (or a conglomeration of merged) publishers, like Rare Replay, aren’t the only types of compilations out there. Some are simply collections of games that are available for certain media (maybe, like me, you spent your early childhood years riffling through “101 Great PC Games!” instead of doing your homework), while others are collections of specific game series, such as Super Mario All-Stars or the Mega Man Anniversary Collection.
