Absolver reminds me of God Hand (so I need it right now)

I lucked into my Absolver appointment at E3. I had wanted to see it since I watched the reveal trailer, but Steven Hansen was booked for the appointment. Sure, I questioned the idea of him playing a game that takes inspiration from Dark Sou...   read

Cuphead's platforming levels are brutal

For my money, Cuphead has unrivaled art direction and animation in the gaming space, but how does it actually play? Is it fun or frustrating? Well, it depends which side you're talking about. After trying Studio MDHR's run-and-gun title at ...   read

It's an important year for the annualization of Forza

For as much flak as the practice of annual installments in popular video game franchises catches, Microsoft feels like it's doing it the right way with Forza. Quietly, Microsoft has released a new Forza title every year for the past fi...   read

Batman Arkham VR is a radical departure from the other Arkham games

I took off my headset just long enough to incredulously ask "Wait, you fucking killed off Nightwing?!" It wasn't so much the confidence and spunk to do it that took me by surprise. Hell, comic books off main characters all the time. It's th...   read

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is going to be one hell of an adventure

When I first heard that Nintendo was planning to focus exclusively on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for its E3 2016 booth, I triple-checked the wording. Only hands-on with Zelda? Really? That can't possibly be right! But it was, a...   read

Here's the current list of Xbox One Play Anywhere games

As we learned last week, Microsoft is kicking off a new initiative called "Play Anywhere," which will link digital purchases across the Xbox One and Windows 10 platforms. Games can still come to Steam and other storefronts on PC, cross-play...   read

Days Gone feels like a stitched-together corpse made up of other games

Days Gone took up a sizable portion of Sony's E3 press conference this year. In addition to a narrative trailer, there was segment of gameplay, making for an odd split during the conference. A few days later, I saw a live walkthrough of tha...   read

Scorpion robot wrangling hands-on with Horizon Zero Dawn

I think there are some limitations to open-world games that not many things outside of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and its holistic systems have managed to get right. It seems like Guerrilla Games' (Killzone) Horizon Zero Dawn has ...   read

Resident Evil 7 has some P.T. in its veins, and I love it so far

Finally! I played Resident Evil 7 earlier today and have been itching to write about it, but unfortunately had other appointments to attend first. It was hard to focus on everything else after spending twenty minutes in Capcom's attemp...   read

Bungie slept with wolves for Destiny

Destiny's forthcoming expansion Rise of Iron has wolves in it, so naturally, when I interviewed the add-on's executive producer Scott Taylor, I wanted to know if we'll be able to fight alongside them. "No," Taylor replied, dashing my hopes,...   read

Shadow Warrior 2 is about guns, swords and huge dongs

The time taken from starting my Shadow Warrior 2 demo at E3 to finding a giant metal and wood carved phallus as a mission objective titled the Demonic Rod was under three minutes. That should give you an idea of the sense of humour this par...   read

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is unbelievably gorgeous

As an intermittently-invested Shantae fan, jumping in and out of the series once every couple of years, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is undeniably the most beautiful entry in the series. From gorgeously fluid animations to the crisp clean artwo...   read

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice feels like it has already shown all its cards

It's no secret to anyone that Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric on the Wii U was not well received by critics or players. From buggy execution to slow and meandering gameplay, Sonic Boom in many ways exemplified what many long time fans have feared...   read

Are you picking up Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse?

At first it was hard to make sense out of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse (known in Japan as "Final"). Initially I thought it was just an expansion of sorts for IV, but as it turns out, it's a brand new game. Now you'll be playing as more...   read

Ha, ThinkGeek is doing a Proto Man Buster replica too

Back in 2014, ThinkGeek unleashed a Mega Buster replica out into the world for $80, that has since been cut to $50. It was a little to silly and unwieldy for my tastes, but I imagine someone's son or daughter is having the time of their lif...   read

Miyamoto: Expect a 'new kind of Mario,' possibly at E3 next year

With just Zelda making a big splash at E3 this year, Nintendo has been noticeably quiet on most fronts, but that might not be the case in 2017.  Speaking to IGN, Shigeru Miyamoto noted that, "We're always challenging ourselve...   read

Kamiya says he has 'ideas' for Bayonetta 3, Okami 2, and 'other Scalebounds'

Famed developer Hideki Kamiya is known for his candid nature. He has one of the most famous Twitter accounts for a reason -- he basically says what he wants, and lets people deal with it. He kind of did the same thing at E3 this year, ...   read

Here's all the hardware news out of E3 2016
