New Daredevil Season Two Trailer Shows Off The Punisher

Netflix is no longer pulling punches with its Daredevil season two marketing. The newest trailer clocks in at almost three minutes, and gives us a good look at Hell's Kitchen's newest threat, The Punisher. We also see a tease of another beloved character at the end of the trailer.

Daredevil's second season releases on March 18 exclusively on Netflix. A second trailer that will likely dive more into other characters that still have a footprint in Hell's Kitchen launches on February 25.

What do you think of Netflix's take on Frank Castle? Moreover, what do you think of the show itself?

Total War: Warhammer Shows Off Its Turn-Based Tabletop Roots

Everything we’ve seen of Total War: Warhammer so far has been about the real-time strategy battles. Today we get a good look at the campaign, as Creative Assembly takes us through part of the Orc’s quest to dominate the Old World.

In between the real-time battles, you’ll move troops around the map, conquer settlements, build structures, and upgrade your forces. In the video below, you’ll see how that works, and how Total War: Warhammer connects to the tabletop experience.

Each race has a different tech tree, and each champion has its own skill progression. Some of those upgrades drastically change how you’ll use that hero in battle. You’ll also note that you can auto-resolve battles, putting things in the hands of the AI.

There's also another look at the game from a different perspective. You can check out a brief bit of the Empire's campaign below.

Far Cry Primal Trailer Gives Us The Basics And Shows Off Pre-Order Bonus

With Far Cry Primal, Ubisoft is taking its popular first-person franchise back to the Stone Age. The guns are gone, but protagonist Takkar has several tricks up his sleeve to make it a more engaging experience. In addition to being quite the crafty journeyman, Takkar can also charm animals to fight alongside him.

In a time of violent tribes and prehistoric creatures, survival is no simple task. To combat the constant threat of death, Takkar can scavenge and craft different weapons ranging from clubs and spears to fire arrows and bee bombs. These weapons come in handy whether fighting fellow humans during stronghold attacks or simply trying to survive the night full of natural predators. 

If this feels a little too overwhelming, you're in luck. Ubisoft has released a primer video that shows how these various mechanics work within the Far Cry formula. The video also shows the different kinds of animals that Takkar can use as companions in action, as well as the adversaries you'll face. The video below wraps up with a look at the pre-order bonus sequence, which allows you to create havoc as a woolly mammoth.

Street Fighter V’s Flashy Trailer Shows Off Older Returning Cast Members

Street Fighter V is only one week away, and if you haven’t started building up the callouses on your thumbs, now’s the time. If you haven’t yet gotten motivated to rejoin the fight, perhaps a new trailer will get your blood pumping.

One of the more interesting things about this look at Street Fighter is how characters have aged. We saw something similar in Mortal Kombat X, but a gray-haired Bison and bearded Dhalsim remind us that even the heartiest of pugilists aren’t a match for Father Time.

A new video for the Dying Light's forthcoming expansion, The
Following, gives us a meaty look at how the player's vehicle can be
weaponized. Players can still hack zombies to bits with makeshift weapons and blow them to bits with heavy artillery, but a buggy can also be used to send them six feet under.

In the video, we see that the buggy can be equipped with useful items like ramming bars and flamethrowers, and small personal touches like paint jobs and dashboard bobbleheads. Players can also tweak the buggy's brakes, suspension, and more to improve its handling.
