Nintendo's E3 2014 streams are now up on YouTube


Live with Treehouse
Jun 20
Nintendo's decision to let its Treehouse staff stream games throughout E3 2014 was smart. It gave those of us at home extended looks at the latest 3DS and Wii U titles, let us hear from developers themselves, and overall hel... read

Max and Bill attempt to describe procedural generation
Of all the games we saw at E3, No Man's Sky is probably the most difficult to describe without sounding like we just came down from a mescaline trip. A procedurally-generated universe filled with millions of planets? Each with new and unique flora and fauna? Spaceships that shoot lasers? This is definitely a high concept game. Hopefully, the final product delivers, because it sounds cool as hell. read feature

Like Team Fortress 2, except with hulking, massive spaceships
The reveal trailer for Dreadnought pushes a lot of the right buttons for science fiction fans. It puts potential players into the right frame of mind and really sets up the scale of the endeavor. Combatants will not be dartin... read feature

And then he said, that's not my podiatrist, that's my mother!
You saw our E3 2014 Game of the Show. It was Metal Gear Solid V. Saved you a click.  Now, it's a good one. In fact, I wrote about why it was our Game of the Show in that very post you just didn't click. But E3 was full o... read feature

Game of the Show photo
And our game of the show winner is ...

With the console launches out of the way, game developers have been able to focus on making great games, and we saw a ton of that at E3 2014 this year.  We shared with you our nominees for game of the show and about a dozen other categories. Now it's time to find out what games have won our Best of E3 2014 winners! read feature

Thanks for following our coverage!
One of the fine gentleman helping us with our video coverage at E3 this year was Michael Jordan, and he put out the call for requests for things to do on the show floor. Here he is doing some of those for our enjoyment. One of you made him run and do push-ups! Poor guy. Please don't die from kissing that GameCube controller, Michael. read feature

Titan Souls preview photo
And leaves you wanting more
One of the smaller games at E3 left the biggest impression on me. Titan Souls is a Ludum Dare entrant that was picked up by Devolver Digital to publish on PC, PS4, and PS Vita -- sort of an appropriate underdog's st... read feature

That's the coolest SEGA logo ever. I've always liked when a logo is altered to tonally match whatever it's slapped on.  This Alien: Isolation trailer doesn't divulge too much, which is good for a horror title, thou... read

Here's our haul from this year's expo
Best swag of E3 2014? There's the usual t-shirts, posters, stickers, and other stuff that gets handed out. Forget that. Atlus' Teddy-centric Persona bags were where it was at this year. Those Splatoon squids were nice, too. But condoms? Oh, E3. read feature

This trailer needs some definite work

NIS takes us to an island paradise, battles us, then travels back in time


A new series mingles with sequels at NIS' E3 preview
Jun 16
NIS was a bit of a hidden treasure at E3. The publisher shared a booth with Atlus and it took me stopping and actually looking at what was on display at the demo station to put two and two together. The search was well worth it because I was rewarded with a closer look at three upcoming titles: Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited, and Natural Doctrine. read

Rise's mini-game super move
Atlus let me touch Persona Q on the first day of E3 during a private meeting. That was a mistake on their part. The main problem is that I didn’t want to stop. The other problem is that they told me I couldn’t wr... read feature
