Saturday Video Round Up: May 10 – 16

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

The Round Up has once again returned, bringing with it the latest trailers and the biggest gameplay footage. Kick those feet up, crank the volume and relax as we dive into the biggest videos from the week that was. Here’s just a small sample of what awaits you below.

Instead of giving us a tease like they usually do, Ubisoft opened the vault and showed off quite a bit of the newly named Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, opting to not wait for E3. I’ve got a pair of trailers for you below dealing with the game as the first introduces us to one of it’s main characters, Jacob Frye, and all of his tricks of the trade. The second is a more traditional trailer, giving you a good look at the Victorian era London that players will be able to run around in. It’s a solid start for the new Assassin’s Creed developer, Ubisoft Quebec.

The day many fans have been waiting for is finally upon us at The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt releases next week. To celebrate, CD Projekt RED released a gorgeous CG trailer showing Geralt of Rivia squaring off against some sort of humanoid looking creature. It’s a fantastic looking trailer.

I’ve also got new videos for Rainbow Six Siege, ARK: Survival Evolved, SMITE 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 it finally arrived last weekend, my husband called dibs on playing it first. I was looking forward to watching it more than playing, so I settled in for some visual fun.

The game took a very long time to load and stalled once during the process; but we didn’t think much of it — we’ve had similar issues with PS3 games before, particularly games we’ve rented. When things finally got underway, the viewing experience was beautiful. The Last of Us is truly deserving as far as art and art direction go. Everything in the game is gloriously rendered in a style that’s a cross between naturalism and photography. And oh man…that story. After avoiding as many spoilers as possible about the game, I couldn’t wait to see how the story of the main protagonist Joe unfolded.
