Fallout 4 Wins Game Of The Show In E3 Critics Awards

The E3 Critics Awards are a tradition of every show. A few weeks after the expo is over, we get a ‘game of the show’ as voted on by a committee of journalists and critics. This is as close to an official ‘winner’ so it does matter on some level. The winners of E3 2015 […]

Watch Miyamoto Head Out To Jim Henson Studios To See A Puppet Of Himself

Nintendo’s E3 Digital Event was somewhat lackluster this year, but where the game content wasn’t thrilling, the puppets they used in between announcements were charming. There is something indicative of Nintendo and how odd yet wonderful they are about how they had Jim Henson Studios create puppet versions of the companies Business executives. I don’t […]

Category: Video Games – Episode 44: E3 Breakdown

Another week has gone by and that means it’s time for another Category: Video Games. If you are joining us for the first time, this is the podcast where me, Laura Kate Dale and Andre Miller sit down to talk about the video game news of the week. Sorry for taking last wee off, but you will learn, there is […]

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Footage Shows Off 25 Minutes In Game

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided could be a very interesting game. Human Revolution was a very solid base from which to build on, and if Eidos Montreal figure out how to make the sufficient improvements, this could be a very good game indeed. Having said that though, I saw the game at E3 and it didn’t […]

PlayStation Release Trailer Showcasing Upcoming Vita Games

The Vita got one solitary mention during the Sony E3 Press conference, but I’d be surprised if you remembered. It was name dropped alongside World of Final Fantasy, which is also coming to PlayStation 4. Sony totally haven’t forgotten about the handheld though. They promise. To prove it, they released this trailer quietly on the internet […]

E3 2015 Game Of The Show Winner: Abzu

So this was unexpected, just as much for me as it probably is for you. This year’s E3 has everyone I know somewhat excited about AAA games again. It seems like there was a genuine effort by most publishers to offer something different and lord knows I was pretty excited about most of what was […]

E3 2015 Game Of The Show Nomination: Horizon: Zero Dawn

Killzone just never revved my engine. It always felt a little bit like a B tier shooter parading as an A grade one. The concept was sound, but it just never quite realised its potential to stand next to the Halos or Call of Dutys of the world that it so desperately wanted to. One […]

E3 2015 Game Of The Show Nomination: Star Wars: Battlefront

There has been a lot of criticism of Star Wars: Battlefront since it was outlined at Star Wars Celebration, following the announcement of fewer maps and fewer modes than the last in the series. (The greatest irony here being that we all know that this game may well end up being  one of the best selling […]

E3 2015 Game Of The Show Nomination: Cuphead

Cuphead has been one of Microsoft’s most interesting, accidental successes. The game showed up last year at E3 as part of the ID@Xbox montage. The focus on the title was over in mere seconds, to chorus of commentators saying: “Hey, woah, woah. What was that?!” That was exclusively down to the game’s incredible art style. […]

Catch 40 Minutes Of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Gameplay

For a game that is out in just a few months, I was surprised how little Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain crossed my focus during this year’ss E3. Maybe I just missed it, but the buzz seems a little subdued for such a big title. Maybe that is down to the lack of a […]

Director Talks About The New Vibrancy In Fallout 4

One of the most surprising things about the Fallout 4 reveal was that the game actually has a lot of vibrancy about it. Fallout 3 was almost iconic in its drab, brown and grey colour pallet. Fallout 4 on the other hand has a real sense of colour and vibrancy about it. Game director Todd […]

Halo 5 Devs Have Teared Up During The Game’s Story

Halo 4 was easily the most accomplished narrative in the Halo universe, in my book. It did a great job of humanising these iconic characters and giving them emotional problems and turbulent relationships to deal with. I really was impressed. It seems Halo 5 is going to follow that trend too. In an interview with […]

Zelda Wii U Wasn’t Shown At E3 Because It Is Further Off Then You Think

Zelda Wii U was one of the clear absentees of E3. In a Nintendo Digital conference that could have sorely needed it, the game could have really livened up proceedings. There’s a reason for the game didn’t show too, and you aren’t going to like it. It seems Zelda is pretty far off. For what was […]

There Is No Mass Effect Remaster Coming Sadly

People complain about remasters a lot, but quite a lot still ask for Mass Effect to get a revamped treatment. It seems that if any game was going to get a pass, it would be a bundle of that franchise. I have some bad news though. It doesn’t look like it’s happening. Speaking to GameInformer, […]

No Man’s Sky Will Come To PC The Same Day As PlayStation 4

No Man’s Sky has been one of the poster children for PlayStation 4, after the publisher snapped up the game when buzz first hit around its announcement. It seems that game is getting impossibly bigger due to the partnership too. But that game isn’t a console exclusiv anymoree. During the PC Gaming Show, Hello Games […]
