E3 2017


Ubisoft Has Finally Shown The World The Beyond Good And Evil 2 Demo From E3

Ubisoft’s big E3 announcement was the reveal of some early footage and gameplay from Beyond Good And Evil 2. While there was a playable demo at E3, it wasn’t playable for most of us, we had it sit back and watch a developer play through the game’s early build. It wasn’t that impressive to most of […]

Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age Has Been The Strangest Demo

For the last year and change, Square Enix has been bringing Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age to trade shows and conventions, and the demos are always a little strange. To be fair, the source material isn’t the most demo-able, but these have always been weird demos, even by Final Fantasy standards. You pick up […]

PlayStation

Sony Doesn’t Think Indie Games Matter As Much In 2017

PlayStation has been a bastion of the indie game community for years now. Part of that is because Sony always took some time at their E3 conference to show off the best of PlayStation’s indie stable. If you caught the 2017 show, however, you might have noticed an absolute lack of any indie games whatsoever. […]

Halo 5

We Won’t Be Seeing Halo 6 For A While

If you were one of the many gamers who watched Microsoft’s Xbox E3 briefing and were shocked at the lack of Halo at the show, we have some bad news for you this morning. 343 Industries has confirmed the studio won’t be discussing the next major installment in its sci-fi shooter series “for quite some time.” […]

Can Metal Gear Survive Save Konami?

In an attempt to keep Metal Gear’s success going after Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Konami is attempting to bring us a survival horror game set in an alternate version of the MGS universe. I got my hands on Metal Gear Survive back at E3. For Survive, Konami took the combat engine of Metal Gear Solid V and dropped […]

The JRPG-est of JRPGs: Hands On With Ni No Kuni II At E3

Level-5 and Bandai Namco’s Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom is quite possibly the most JRPG feeling JRPG that made it to E3. That Bandai were the ones to bring the most Japanese role playing game to the show is not much of a surprise. Ni No Kuni II is gorgeous with highly stylized art, a […]

Sowing The Seeds Of Chaos With Agents Of Mayhem At E3

Last year I got the chance to take an early build of Deep Silver and Volition’s Agents of Mayhem for a spin, and was pleasantly surprised at how smoothly the game functioned. The over-the-top characterizations, the cringe-worthy catchphrases, and absolute absurdity of the gameplay made it incredibly enjoyable. Agents of Mayhem has not once taken itself seriously, and […]

Project Cars 2 Hands On At E3

Bandai Namco and Slightly Mad Studios trucked out Project Cars 2 for E3 this year, with a bunch of demo kits set up with racing chairs and a McLaren 720S hanging out in the corner for atmosphere. I’m notoriously picky about racing sims, because I tend to be an obnoxious car enthusiast who whines about how […]

Button Mashing And Lens Flare: Hands On With Dissidia Final Fantasy NT At E3

When Square Enix announced they were bringing Dissidia to consoles, it was awesome news. Dissidia has always been a bit of a mess, but an enjoyable one. The playable demo at E3 for Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is no different. The mechanics are pretty simple, if not weird for a fighting game. Your basic attack […]

Konami’s Increasingly Odd Decisions About Pro Evolution Soccer

Konami is in a really, really weird place these days. Especially in the western world, their two main franchises are Pro Evolution Soccer and Metal Gear. And with Hideo Kojima no longer at Konami, the state of Metal Gear is entirely up for grabs. So, Pro Evolution Soccer and scattered mobile titles it is. But PES doesn’t do well in North America. Not […]


Let it Die

Let It Die Gives Us The Perfect Ambiance And A Preview Of The Next Update At E3

GungHo Entertainment and Grasshopper Manufacture’s Let it Die is a ridiculously campy tour-de-force that’s as steeped in hypermasculine displays of violence as it is entirely self-aware. To put it in simpler terms, Let it Die is compelling because it knows when not to take itself seriously, all while deadpanning through every joke. And I cannot get enough […]

Take A Look At Pillars Of Eternity II: Deadfire From E3

Obsidian Entertainment is showing off following pre-alpha footage of Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire at E3. For those of you who missed it, or are sitting at home, you’ll definitely want to take a look. I got a chance to sit down with some of the creative team at the show, to see how the game’s been […]

Dead by Daylight

E3: Dead By Daylight Plays As Well On Console As It Does PC

Hands down one of my favorite games to check in with is Dead by Daylight not only because it is by far the best asymmetrical horror survival PVP game, but also because the developers just absolutely adore what they do. It’s always a fantastic time when you can sit down and chat with game devs who […]

Assassin’s Creed Takes Home The Prize For Most Talked About Game At E3

Despite being the newest entry in a lengthy franchise, people just could not get enough of Assassin’s Creed Origins this year. Part of that buzz was certainly boosted by the fact that Microsoft’s Xbox Conference was the most talked about of the E3 pre-show events. The large buzz around Microsoft’s show is easily attibuted to […]

Check Out These Stunning Photos From The E3 2017 Show Floor

E3 is the premiere gaming convention in the United States, and it has been every gamer’s dream to go to that show. This year was the first year E3 offered attendee badges, but they came with a pretty steep price. So if you didn’t make it to the show, we’ve got a fabulous collection of […]

Dark And Light Partnered With NVIDIA For E3

Snail is teaming up with NVIDIA to bring players an exclusive look at their fantasy sandbox survival game, Dark and Light. Dark and Light’s breathtaking visuals pretty much make them a solid choice for using NVIDIA’s Ansel technology. With NVIDIA Ansel, players can take staggering 360° screenshots, as well as studio-quality 2D screenshots, as they make their way […]

Nintendo’s E3 Conference Dominated By Metroid

Nintendo were not kidding when they said their E3 plans were slim, but that didn’t stop their 25-minute show from making a whole lot of noise. The game that took home the most mentions was Metroid Prime 4, with Kirby picking up the slack. Again, these stats are coming courtesy of Brandwatch. Over 50,000 mentions […]

Nintendo Announces Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions At E3

Nintendo just didn’t have enough time in their brief E3 press conference, and so continued to make announcements through the day including the announcement of a remake of a classic Mario & Luigi game, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions will contain all the fun gameplay and dialogue of the Game Boy […]
