Nintendo Direct recap

Not today, Mother 3 fans

There may not have been news of Nintendo localizing Mother 3 for western audiences during today's Direct presentation, but hang in there, Negative Man. We're getting more Rhythm Tengoku! And another Paper Mario! It's going to be okay. Let'...

 
Sony @ gamescom
Sony's gamescom showing went by quickly, with announcement after announcement and more than a few new intellectual properties put on display for the first time. Really, though, it's still From Software's Bloodborne that has m...   read

Microsoft @ gamescom
If you don't like Halo, you probably didn't have a great time watching Microsoft's gamescom conference today. Having said that, they did have a decent indie sizzle reel showing, and the [email protected] program is making vast strides compared to how rigid its old ways were during the tail end of the 360. Check out all of the news from Microsoft's conference below.   read

Nintendo E3 recap
Nintendo had a very well-rounded presentation today, with very few major reveals and mostly just new teases. The new Zelda Wii U game was briefly talked about and teased, as was Mario Maker, and a few others. The biggest developments were probably the new Smash Bros. additions as well as expanded NFC toy support. Here's everything that happened at Nintendo's E3 conference.   read

Sony at E3
Sony had a pretty great E3 Conference today, showing off a number of new titles both AAA and indie. They also gave us a lot more info on PS Now, the PS TV, and other bits of media and hardware like their first original series. Check out everything Sony announced today below.   read

Ubisoft's E3 Conference
Ubisoft had a weird showing with some exciting moments -- which is par for the course, and basically what they deliver year after year. The clear-cut big-time showing this year was Rainbow Six Siege, a glorious return to form...   read

EA's E3 Conference
EA had a very snappy presentation today, with very few announcements and mostly just recaps on the development of existing projects. The big news of course is the announcement that the Battlefield Hardline beta is going live today on PC and PS4 -- the site is already getting hit hard. Here's everything that happened at EA's 2014 E3 press conference.   read

Microsoft at E3 recap
Microsoft had their E3 Conference today, and it was all about the games. Everything shown was game related, and they even got a few great reveals in there like a brand new Platinum Games exclusive that looks like it could be great. It didn't blow me away, but it's far from a disaster. Here's everything that happened.   read

The Daily Hotness: Microsoft's sticky Xbone
