It's been four years since Cliff Bleszinski's last game, Gears of War 3. Since then he left Epic Games, started his own studio Boss Key Productions and has been relatively out of the spotlight.

LawBreakers marks his return to the scene. Although the trailer doesn't show any in-game footage, it presents an foreign, evolved world dealing with the fallout of an external disaster.

If you flip that to internal disaster, it sounds a whole heck of a lot like Gears of War's Emergence Day.

LawBreakers was announced as Project Bluestreak July 2014, but we haven't seen anything other than some pre-alpha footage until now.

It will be a free-to-play, arena first person shooter. And according to the trailer, it's coming next year.

YouTube launches its video game streaming site.

Twitch has dominated the new market of video game streaming and now YouTube wants a cut of the action.

As they announced at the beginning of the summer, YouTube has planned to launch YouTube Gaming, a separate site dedicated to streaming, watching and chatting about video games. On Aug. 26, they began a slow release of the new platform.

Mashable says the introduction is fairly painless:

Getting started is a simple process of navigating your browser over to gaming.youtube.com and following the steps in a setup process (that includes phone verification). You'll need to set up encoding software, fill out the necessary info for your stream and tick off any optional features. There's a checklist right there on the setup page, but Google also put together a more involved guide to getting set up.

YouTube Gaming supports streaming from PlayStation 4, Wii U and Xbox One consoles, provided you've got a capture device sending video from the console to your computer. Google specifically calls out Elgato's HD60 as a YouTube Live Verified device, but there's a good chance that other game capture solutions work as well. If you've got one, try it out before you run out and buy something new.



Apparently, mobile apps for Android and iOS are also around the corner so you can watch your gaming of the go.

The launch comes only a year after Google prepared a heaping ton of money to purchase Twitch, but then Amazon swooped in with $970 million and bought the streaming service.

There's no telling yet whether the search giant will have any luck in a space already dominated by Twitch and executives at the leading streamer seem to think not.

Matthew DiPietro, Twitch's SVP of Marketing released a statement Aug. 25, basically bragging about how their numbers are so much bigger:



For our current stats, we have 1.5 million broadcasters (11K Partnered channels), 100 million viewers per month who watch 106 minutes per person per day on average, and 38 million installs of our mobile app with 4.7 billion minutes watched across 10.3 million unique devices.

Bungie's gearing up for the biggest expansion to their enormous space shooter Destiny. The Taken King will release Sept. 15, but before that, they want to get people primed and ready.

This video should help.



The trailer is also somewhat notable because its the first time Bungie has showed footage of the ghost companion voiced by Nolan North, who took over for Peter Dinklage and what many think was a sub par performance.

Even though creator Hideo Kojima has been pushed out of his project, Konami is still letting him edit and direct these trailers.

If you want more, plenty other trailers have come out for the game.

But at this point, you're probably better off waiting for its Sept. 1 release.

Another month, another round of free Playstation Plus games. And this time, you voted for 'em.

The Playstation Blog had all the details:

So what can gamers look forward to this September? Grow Home is an adorable game about BUD (Botanical Utility Droid), who is traveling the stars in search of new flora to help his home planet. In Grow Home, players will climb a massive plant that stretches from the planet's surface all the way to his ship in space. Don't look down.

Super Time Force Ultra is a fast-paced action platformer that tasks players with rewinding time and creating "time clones" to clear out levels. In Xeodrifter, players explore strange alien planets and discover valuable secrets to cobble together a way home. Twisted Metal celebrates classic car combat with tons of power-ups and delectable explosions. Teslagrad features beautiful platforming and smart puzzles, and La Mulana EX brings a riddle-filled adventure to challenge-hungry gamers.





Sony will make the games available on Sept. 1.

Nintendo announces a mega yarn yoshi amiibo.

We were introduced to the yarn Yoshi amiibo at E3, but nothing could have prepared us for this cuteness.

According to Nintendo Life, Nintendo will release a giant, 'mega' version of the adorable thing:

The Yarn Yoshi amiibo triplicate was a great move by Nintendo - it brought the idea of toys-to-life into actual toys that aren't glorified statuettes. Three clearly wasn't enough though, as now we can expect a giant variation of these adorable critters to arrive in North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand in November.

The amiibo has identical functionality in Yoshi's Woolly World to its standard-sized cohorts, spawning a second Yoshi to be controlled in tandem to your main dinosaur pal. The amiibo chip is contained in this one's foot rather than its base, and it stands at roughly two and a half to three times the height of the previous three.



Oh my god, look at it:



Although it's a few months after the release of Yoshi's Wolly World, it still melts our hearst.

Well, we suppose this is one way to market a football video game.

Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Julio Jones, Rob Gronkowski, Colin Kaepernick, Antonio Brown and Buffalo Bills Coach Rex Ryan all chose, presumably of their own free will, to join this EA Sports commercial for the annual Madden Game.





It's somewhere in between that insane Kickstarter success Kung Fury and a sci-fi Karate Kid. Including Colin Kaepernick as Al Pacino from Scent of a Woman of course.

And yes, there is a dinosaur.



It's also nice to see McLovin' doing some work.



Is it just us or does this seem really similar to Tay Tay's Bad Blood video.



The game will release Aug. 25.
