Empire of Sin is a dream game for John and Brenda Romero

Nintendo's E3 Direct was full of a ton of surprises, but one of the more striking was the announcement of Empire of Sin. Feeling completely out of place for Nintendo's family-friendly image, the short teaser showed mobsters gunning down oth...

Destiny Connect feels a generation behind, but that's okay

NIS America wasn't at E3 proper this year. A few blocks away from the convention center, it set up shop in a Chinese restaurant where the smells emanating from the kitchen made my stomach grumble even though I had just eaten about a half-ho...

Dying Light 2 lets you destroy entire areas in the city

At one point in the hands-off gameplay demo of Dying Light 2 at E3, the Techland employee making decisions for the packed room to see on-screen turned on some pumps at a dam, draining one section of the city and flooding another. That one c...

Carrion will be gruesome fun while it lasts

Sign me the heck up for video games that – like Carrion – let you wreak havoc on hapless humans as a monster. Whether it's an asymmetric multiplayer experience or a single-player power fantasy, I want in. The upcoming PC and con...

It may be derivative, but Zombie Army 4 is a good time

I'm not exactly well-versed in the Sniper Elite games, but I am familiar with the Nazi Zombie Army spin-off. Taking a lot of cues from Valve's Left 4 Dead, this diversion from sniping living Nazi soldiers added a more focused campaign to th...

From Software isn't in a rush to make another VR game

Did you know that From Software made a virtual reality game? I feel like Déraciné, a boarding-school adventure starring an unseen faerie, never fully sunk in. It launched last November for PlayStation VR with assistance from S...

Sniper Elite VR may just convince me to get a VR headset

I'm not exactly well versed in the world of VR gaming. While I think the technology is cool and all, I feel it has more value in academics than gaming. You can certainly make interesting games around the technology, but there hasn't been mu...

As of this E3, Nintendo maintains that the 3DS is still alive

So the 3DS is currently getting passed over at Nintendo with a focus on both the Switch and mobile arena. Nintendo has moved over pretty much all of their efforts to the latter platforms, and had nothing to announce, 3DS-wise, at E3 this ye...

Luigi's Mansion 3 is a gooey good time on Nintendo Switch

Is there anything better than Luigi's scaredy-cat whimpers? Yeah, maybe – but not much! E3 2019 was my reminder that Luigi's Mansion is a good, wholesome, unlikely series worth supporting. This year, Nintendo's ghost-bustin' action-ad...

Heroland impressed me more than any other game at E3

I don't expect to be surprised all that much by this industry anymore. Sure, some announcements can come out of nowhere, like Nintendo capping off its E3 presentation with a teaser of a Breath of the Wild sequel. But with gaming so hea...

A lot can happen in just 12 Minutes

Three writers sat in a room in the Microsoft Theater, looking at one man in a room with his wife. She wants to have dessert, so he sets the table while she goes into the other room. The man starts eating without her. Presumably, the guy to ...

Everyone is talking up the Series X & PS5s fast SSDs as virtual While useful, my concern is that it sort of points to Sony/MS feeling the systems 16GB of DDR6 wont be adequate (hence the virtual memory to Guess well
