Originally meant to be the flagship reboot with a side meal RTS, its fair to say the tables have turned on the once-FPS X-COM. The Bureau: X-COM Declassified is finally going to see the light of day at least, now as a tactical third-person shooter. August 20, 2013 is the date, so I'll start taking bets now on it getting delayed.  In all seriousness though, I'm actually looking forward to it. As what feels like one of the few people who really enjoyed Bioshock 2, I'm interested to see where 2K Marin is taking this one.

Today, Chris gets a look at the Rayman Challenges app on Wii U, Iwata speaks on the Wii U's earlier faults, and Valve provides incentives for CS: GO map makers. Microsoft is rumored to be giving publishers the option to have console DRM, Resident Evil: Revelations is going to be bringing out a demo soon, and defunct THQ still has its creditors after it.

Here's everything that happened during Microsoft's 2014 E3 Conference

Microsoft had their E3 Conference today, and it was all about the games.
