E3 2016
E3 has been winding down in recent years, especially with big-name publishers like EA holding their own events off the show floor, and Nintendo literally only showing Zelda at the conference in 2016. The rise of controll...   read

Microsoft's E3 2016 presser is at the same time as every Microsoft E3 presser

Once upon a time, Microsoft had the privilege of kickin' off E3 with its Monday morning press conferences at USC's Galen Center. Last year, Bethesda partially stole that spotlight by moving up the E3 start date to Sunday night. This June, b...

We just got a little more info about Bethesda's E3 press conference

In early February, Bethesda laid bare its plans to host another E3 press conference this year. The bulk of the details were there -- it's on June 12 at 7pm Pacific. That's all most people need to know, as they just have to find a stream and...

E3 is 'beyond relevant' says organization that profits greatly off people thinking E3 is relevant

E3 is becoming less and less relevant. It's not a dead show, but it's also past its prime. There was once a time when the biggest video game companies in the world had to have the biggest presence at E3. It was a dick-measuring contest. Now...

Wargaming and Disney just pulled out of E3

E3's PC Gaming Show is coming back this year

[Update: On May 5, 2016, it was announced that the PC Gaming Show would be moved up to 11:30 AM, between Microsoft and Ubisoft's press conferences.] One night at E3 last year, I distinctly recall sitting in one of Destructoid's Airbnb rooms...

EA is skipping an E3 booth this year, hosting 'EA Play' event instead

As time went on, certain players opt to skip out on E3. Blizzard has BlizzCon. Now, EA has "EA Play." Instead of hosting a typical E3 booth this year, EA will have a special engagement from June 12-14 at the Nokia Theater in LA (as well as ...

Iwata on E3: Unlike other booths, most of our visitors were smiling

Matches in Gigantic should only take 15 minutes

Rodea impressions
My first flight with Rodea: The Sky Soldier wasn't a smooth one. But perhaps that's to be expected of a title that's seen such a turbulent development history. The project went dark shortly after its initial announcement in 2010, then underwent a change of platforms -- something that seems all too apparent after a few minutes with the final product.   read

Mega Man
Mega Man Legacy Collection bundles the first six Mega Man games for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and 3DS. I played a bit at E3. Gut reaction: it's probably going to be worth the $14.99 asking price. You might be wondering what's up wit...   read

Shenmue 3 needs $10 million for a true open world
