E3

E3 press conferences are traditionally held by the three big console manufacturers. However, videogame publishers have been known to host their own when their upcoming line-ups call for it. Electronic Arts and Ubisoft are the...
Bethesda, creator of the Elder Scrolls and the newer series of Fallout games, has sent out invites for its E3 press conference that takes place on Sunday, June 14. Pictured on the invite are reserved seats for chara...
After the recent announcement that Zelda for Wii U wouldn't be releasing in 2015, people all around the Internet have been losing their collective minds screaming that the Wii U is dead when really, it is anything but. So join me as I refresh your memory and get you back on the Nintendo hype train for 2015.
February snow's still on the ground. All eyes are trained squarely on the rapidly impending GDC. Lo, Bethesda comes out of nowhere and wants to talk about E3! Los Angeles is still so many months away; just settle down. Oh, Be...


Remember last year when Microsoft said it was rebooting Phantom Dust? Me neither! It's been a while since we've heard about the project, but now we have some juicy details compliments of creative director Ken Lobb in a recent...
We don't attend videogame trade shows for their "PR impact," but it is interesting to hear that gamescom is gaining on E3 as far as that measurement is concerned. Analytics company ICO Partners says that the European event is...
In a move that should shock absolutely no one, it appears that Sony actually did rewrite bits and pieces of its E3 2013 presentation after witnessing Microsoft's own announcements crash and burn.  Sony Computer Entertain...
The Game Critics Awards for E3 2014, as determined by 29 media outlets including Destructoid, have been announced. After seeing the nominations, it's no surprise that Turtle Rock's one-versus-four multiplayer shooter Evolve c...
It should go without saying that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain had a great showing at E3. Not only was the official trailer a stellar piece of work, and a big indication of how grim the game will be, but the 30-minute ...
It's weird clicking a mature content warning on a video on Nintendo's YouTube with Mario staring innocently at me. But the collaboration between Itagaki and Nintendo for The Devil's Third, revived as a Wii U exclusive, is we...
With E3 2014 in the rear-view mirror, it's time to see which publishers and games impressed the Game Critics judges the most. The Game Critics Awards are handed out after judges from 39 outlets vote on titles that were a...
Sure, you could go watch the whole half-hour demo of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain we saw at E3, but then you don't get to look at my pretty face. Also, an animal shows up at the end of this video! Can you guess what it is? 
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...
Conan O'Brien has once again visited E3 to take a look at a selection of games, and addition to the jokes, you can also get a look at some gameplay that wasn't previously available. Conan checks out Sunset Overdrive, Entwine...
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.
Last week, we asked you to weigh in on your favorite games of E3 2014. And weigh in you did! There were approximately eleventy bajillion votes cast and hand-counted by yours truly, making this one of the most popular E3 award...
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...
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...
Nestled in a parking lot across the street from the convention center in Los Angeles was Devolver Digital's phalanx of air conditioned campers. The publisher had a good mixture of highly anticipated titles like Hotline Miami ...
E3 was all about the games this year. 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!
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.
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...
I've always found Nintendo to be endearing, but that feeling has grown stronger ever since the company started doing its Nintendo Direct presentations and silly skits like this. We first met Fils-a-Mech earlier this year and...
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...
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.
Hey new guy, did you know that Destructoid was founded just to get me into E3? No, seriously.
The original doujin game Corpse Party is making its way to PC, and this trailer showcases some of the fantastically disturbing dialogue and scenes you can expect from the cult horror hit. Journey through Heavenly Host Elemen...
Brandish: The Dark Revenant is releasing as a digital-only PSP title that you can nab only from the PlayStation Store, and you can certainly see this from its trailer. But you know what? It looks like a good, old-fashioned d...
Story of Seasons and Natsume's Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley (full story on that debacle here) are undoubtedly two games that I'm looking forward to play on my 3DS the most, but with trailers like these, it's as if XSEED jus...
If you were patiently awaiting The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, this new gameplay video and bushel of new screens may just have made your wait even more difficult. Trust me, we're in the same boat. If the nearly four minutes of gam...
That's another E3 in the books. After months of speculation as to what gaming's most important convention might hold, four quick days clear everything up. In a way, it almost feels criminally short given everything that's on ...
It's true. Devolver Digital does have the best E3 presence in that its booth isn't actually a booth -- it's trailers and a barbeque in a parking lot outside of the hustle and bustle of the Los Angeles convention center. For ...
Ace Attorney 123: Wright Selection came out in Japan. It's coming to the 3DS eShop elsewhere this winter. Wright Selection includes Ace Attorney, Justice for All, and Trials and Tribulations, all gussied u...
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.
Fans of farming and lifestyle sims are no doubt familiar with the confusion surrounding the Bokujō Monogatari series. Natsume owned the trademark on the English title, Harvest Moon, but XSEED had the relationship wi...
The last decade has brought us ten new Call of Duty games. With that steady drip of titles, the series' developers have figured out how to craft increasingly elaborate action scenarios. Despite being at it for a while, t...
I tried my hardest to imagine what the combination of pinball and RPG would look and play like before meeting with Atlus at E3, but I kept coming to mental roadblocks so I decided to wait and be surprised when I got to see it...
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...
Waiting for one of Capcom’s own to sit in and play with me for my first go at upcoming 3DS title Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, I got a bit hasty and started picking my own quest. Little did I know I was headed for trouble...
In a presentation through Microsoft's ID@Xbox program, The Farm 51's Lead Designer Kamil Bilczyński first showed the trailer for the upcoming first-person shooter/mystery investigation hybrid game Get Even. It is clear w...
