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

President of Nintendo Satoru Iwata didn't attend E3 this year, but that didn't stop him from dropping this -- as the kids call it -- sick burn on competitors: "One thing I should say about Nintendo's E3 booth is that, unlike the other ...

Uncharted 4 extended trailer: Drake is a Terminator

Hey, remember when I crouched in a bush beside skating teens and told you about the extended Uncharted 4: A Thief's End demonstration I saw at E3? (I wrote about it, too.) Now you can watch that extended gameplay and see just how monstrous...

Matches in Gigantic should only take 15 minutes

I'm not much of a MOBA person, but I have really gotten into Heroes of the Storm as of late thanks to its snappy, streamlined design. Shorter matches are a godsend. I've also been eying Gigantic, Motiga's super pretty third-person take on t...

Why you can't be female in The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes

So people are really into this Final Fantasy VII remake

I was rooting around YouTubes as one does when a number of (hah) zeros caught my eye: 10,018,000. That was the view count on the PlayStation upload of the Final Fantasy VII remake announcement trailer (there's an additional million views be...

 
SQUARE ENIX
There comes a point in every console's life cycle where we all collectively decide the party is over. Some people start filing out around midnight. Others will disappear later on. Eventually it's just one guy trying to keep t...   read

When you jump off a ledge in Willy Chyr's Relativity, you can keep falling. Forever. The abstract world, made up of floating platforms and puzzle rooms, loops. Why climb a huge flight of stairs when you can just "fall" to the...   read

E3 Game of the Show

Goliath preview
Survival games like Don't Starve can provide some of the best moments in gaming. The early hours of trying to fathom how this new world works, the slow strengthening of self until you gain confidence, and the s...   read

Super Dungeon Bros
Unnecessary negativity is a blight, especially for writers. It can poison the mind and alienate the reader; a cancerous state of mind that serves nobody. Personally, I try and avoid it whenever possible. That mentality does m...   read

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

Enough talk, let's watch some Shadow Warrior 2

With all of the stops to carefully pan the camera, you know this is an E3 demo, but the upgraded lighting in Shadow Warrior 2 does look nice. Demons aside, I'd like to retire here. Lo Wang spouts a bunch of cheesy lines, as expected. A guy...

Deus Ex

Shenmue 3 needs $10 million for a true open world

Shenmue 3's existence is pretty neat. Its presence on a major publisher's stage show to hock a Kickstarter is less neat, to me. Obviously the $2 million goal (and $3.5 million raised at time of writing) would not be enough for Shenmue 3, so...

Video impressions: Uncharted 4's extended E3 demo

I got to see another large chunk of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End from after the trailer cut off at E3. I wrote about that a bit here. I've also written a bit about why I think Uncharted 4 has the potential to be much better than Uncharted 3'...

Hands-on with 2D Souls-like Eitr

Headmaster is NOT a VR porn game for Morpheus

Toys-to-life games have a long way to go

25 minutes of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided gameplay

Nintendo announced a new Metroid so we gave Zack a haircut
