Demo gets camera, combat and targeting tweaks, main game gets difficulty settings
Ok. Final Fantasy XV isn't skipping E3. It'll only pay lip service, though. The above Final Fantasy XV Active Time Report, which is helpfully subtitled in English, sees director Hajime Tabata and marketing manager Akio Ofuji... read feature

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... 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

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

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
