A lot of trailers and featurettes have been released for The Last of Us at this year’s Gamescom and I wanted to take the time to show them to you, because the game looks fantastic.  Announced at the Spike Video Game Awards 2011, The Last of Us follows two unlikely companions as they make their way through a post apocalyptic world on the run from the infected.

Take a look for yourselves at this fantastic new trailer straight from Gamescom.

Want to know more about the game’s details?  Well, here are the game’s directors to talk about it.

Finally, they’ve posted two featurettes which show just how the game is being made, in particular, how the actors portraying the in-game characters get their performances across.  First off, here’s a side by side of what goes into the development of one game cinematic.

Finally, here’s the raw performance capture video of one of the game’s cinematics.

If you’re interested in seeing the final version of the cinematic that is being captured in this scene, you can watch it here.

The Last of Us is coming exclusive to the Playstation 3.

Continuing with our coverage of Dead Space 3 at this year’s Gamescom, Viceral has shown off a brand new feature to the Dead Space game series, complete weapons crafting.

Previously in Dead Space games you would be able to purchase weapons after obtaining the schematics for them somewhere in the game’s universe.  From there you would be able to use in game workbenches to upgrade the weapons using power nodes found in fuse boxes or dropped by bosses.  You had a pretty wide spectrum of upgrade opportunities with weapons, as you could upgrade everything ranging from weapon damage to the time it takes to reload.

The Bench is being completely revamped in Dead Space 3.  How much of a revamp are we getting?  Well, rather than explain just how in depth this new system is, why don’t I just show you?

What weapons do you think should be featured in Dead Space 3?  Tweet @deadspace with your ideas!

Dead Space 3 is coming Feb 5th, 2013 to the PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
