Photo realistic cat heads in Wii U's The Devil's Third

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...   more

The 5 best parts from the E3 demo of MGS V: The Phantom Pain

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?    more

Nintendo's E3 2014 streams are now up on YouTube

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...   more

Video: No Man's Sky impressions

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.   more

Video: Your end of E3 2014 requests

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.   more

Reggie Fils-a-Mech returns to kick your ass

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...   more

Run, hide, survive: Good advice, Alien: Isolation trailer

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...   more

Video: Condoms and other swag at E3 2014

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.   more

Video: E3 for Devolver Digital means pigeon dating, bros, and murder

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 ...   more

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax first hands-on at E3 2014

Video: Bust up some guy's vineyard in Forza Horizon 2

In Forza Horizon 2, you're headed to Southern Europe. We sent one of our video guys, the energetic Mike Cosimano, to check it out at E3. He really, really dug the last Horizon and it sounds like the sequel is more of the same on a grander scale, for better or worse. That includes Drivatars. They're back, with a vengeance.   more

Video: Yoshi's Woolly World has weaponized cannibalism

What's the verdict on Yoshi's Woolly World? Unsurprisingly, Max says it looks and feels good. He's a huge fan of the original Yoshi's Island on Super Nintendo and after the recent Yoshi's New Island, this game and its adorable hand-crafted aesthetic can't come soon enough. Shame it's not out until 2015, a running theme for much of this year's E3 lineup. No Baby Mario, at least.   more

You all saw the gameplay footage of Far Cry 4, right? Well I got to play through the demo myself, specifically focused on taking over the outpost (now referred to as fortresses).
