The end of 2013 has arrived, and video game critics, websites, and players everywhere are choosing their picks for Game of the Year.
I’ve not been able to play all of the great games that were released this year (there were quite a few), sadly, so I can’t fairly declare one the best of them all. I can, however, share my personal favorites, and wanted to open up a good ol’ geek discussion so you too can share your favorites!
A new gameplay trailer for the upcoming video game from developer Quantic Dream titled Beyond: Two Souls has been released. We’ve already seen 35-minute and 22-minute gameplay demos for the game, both showing off just how emotional and story-driven the game aims to be.
This new trailer, which is titled “Beautiful Drama,” is much shorter than previous videos, clocking in at only a little over three minutes in length. But it still features game stars Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe talking about the game, and shows off plenty of impressive new footage.

The next game from Heavy Rain developer Quantic Dream, Beyond: Two Souls, is definitely one of the most anticipated upcoming games. We got our first look at the game and its star, Ellen Page, at last year’s E3. Then came that incredible 35-minute gameplay demo, and that’s all you really needed to see.
E3 2013 brings with it another lengthy gameplay demo—this one slightly shorter at only 22 minutes—as well as a new trailer. The gameplay demo isn’t as good as the 35 minute one, but still very worth watching. And before you ask, no, I do not know why Ellen page is subtitled and little Salim is not.

This week, SNL skewers Google Glass, lots of upcoming gaming news, the FBI’s plan to wiretap web users, iOS 7 is going flat, Facebook and SMS loses millions of users, the world’s first 3D printed gun, and a man who quit the internet for a year (and lived to tell about it)…
Most gamers need only hear the name David Cage to become interested in a new video game. Cage and his Quantic Dream’s primary focuses are emotion and storytelling and innovation, which they nailed with Heavy Rain. The team then set out to build off of the foundation they had set with Heavy Rain, which led to the conception of Beyond: Two Souls.
We first found out about the game at E3 last year, when it was revealed that Ellen Page would be the star of the game and a very impressive preview was shown off. Now a new gameplay demo for Beyond: Two Souls has been released, and it is a big one. The demo was shown off at the Tribeca Film Festival—a first for a console-exclusive game—and spans a whopping 35 minutes. In it, you see all of the emotion, storytelling, and innovation Cage and Quantic Dream strive for, making it well worth your time.
