Fearsome Demigryph Kicks Off New Total War: Warhammer Video Series

Creative Assembly will be releasing a new trailer for its upcoming Total War: Warhammer later this week. In the meantime, the studio is releasing a series of videos that highlights some of the creatures from the game. First up, the mighty demigryph.

The clip below provides a nicely detailed look at the beast, via test animations, sketches, and developer narration. The idea of an eagle/lion hybrid may not be any less silly, but you may gain a greater appreciation for why it might have such a fearsome reputation.

Total War: Warhammer is coming to PC and Mac later this year.

PewDiePie Releases Video Discussing The Internet Feedback To His Impressive $7 Million Salary

YouTube (and South Park) phenomenon Felix "PewDiePie" Kjellberg makes a lot of money with his channel, and he recently released a video responding to those responding to his salary.

A Swedish newspaper, Expressen, revealed approximately how much the YouTube star makes per year, and it's around the $ 7 million mark. The Internet was, unsurprisingly, shocked by the number, and as is the case with most of PewDiePie's output, reacted with loud Internet comments.

In response, Mr. Kjellberg released the video below thoughtfully taking on the subject basically saying he likes money because he is a human being, but it's not as important to him as having a good time making video content for his fans. He also jokingly admits to making lame sex jokes and thinks he looks good in a bikini. Mr. Kjellberg ends the video saying, "It seems like the whole world cares more about how much money I make than I do myself," and reminds watchers that he also raises a lot of money for charity, even if that's not what makes headlines.

This is not the first time Mr. Kjellberg has been outspoken about money, though this is the first time he has talked about his own. For his thoughts on Nintendo's insistance on Nintendo fighting against the monetization of its games on YouTube, head here.

Our Take
More power to you PewDiePie. You excel at your art and I am impressed – even if I don't totally get it, myself.

Metal Gear Solid V’s Fist Of Death In Action (Updated With English Video)

Update: Konami has made available an English version of the walkthrough. You can check it out below.

(Please visit the site to view this media)

Original Story:

Stealth is often at the heart of the Metal Gear experience, but there have always been many ways to get the job done. This new gameplay video for MGS V: The Phantom Pain shows various ways to complete one of the title's early missions.

This new video shows off multiple ways to take out the game's third mission: A Hero's Way, which tasks you with taking out a Spetsnaz commander. Snake can do this on his own, use different buddies, or even go in hot and heavy with helicopter-guns blazing. Of course, there's also the remote-controlled fist. You've got to see this to believe it. The last method is also particularly funny, and not because the cardboard box is involved.

It's worth noting that players can replay missions at any time, and these different methods may depend on what kinds of buddies or equipment you've accumulated up into this point. Also, the video speeds up at various points only for convenience.

(Please visit the site to view this media)

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360 comes out on September 1. It's out for PC on September 15.

A Video Tour Of Some New Features In Rory McIlroy PGA Tour

Rory McIlroy may have just blown out his ankle and endangered the defense of his Open championship, but at least his game is still on track to come out for new-gen systems on July 14. Here's video evidence that the show will indeed go on – complete even with some interesting new features.

Quick Rounds: This mode is designed so you can play a course's most important holes in a short amount of time. The video below shows the second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, at holes 12 through 15. The video's create-a-pro starts even, and scores applicable XP at the end of the mini-round by his/her performance. Note the commentary. There's more of it than in years past, it's more seamless with the action, and even talks about past performance. 

(Please visit the site to view this media)

Night Club Challenge: As the name indicates, these are hundreds of quick challenges taking place at night. As the challenges progress, you earn boosts such as being able to control the direction of your ball or having it stick to the ground with no roll off. A max of three boosts can be equipped, and they each drain different amounts of energy. Of course, the challenges themselves become harder too, with each hole ending with a stroke-play like challenge where you have to navigate a field of varying obstacles like speed pads, rings, and more.

(Please visit the site to view this media)

Fewer Course Limits: This year's PGA Tour features no load times between holes as well as more areas to hit the ball into, such as wildly out of bounds. In the trailer below you can also take a look at one of the game's fantasy courses. Rory only features 8 real-life courses, so it'll be interesting to see the game's fantasy and no-licensed courses.
