Did Microsoft Meet Expectations at E3

With the glaring absence of Sony at this year’s E3, the stars aligned for Microsoft to really get a lead on its competitor and win over the gaming crowd back towards the Xbox brand. The stage was literally set for Microsoft to blow Sony out of the water and leave them playing catch-up going into […]

A Dark Crystal Game Was Announced at E3, but It’s Not the First

To the surprise of many Jim Henson fans, during the Nintendo Direct at E3 2019, a trailer for a game made in collaboration with Netflix’s The Dark Crystal prequel series dropped, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics. While it’s not uncommon to expect this sort of cross-promotion nowadays, it’s actually not the first time […]

Where Do all these Nazi Zombies Even Come from Anyway?

E3 2019 has featured a few games that incorporate nazi zombies — Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Zombie Army 4: Dead War, and perhaps even more to come — so I thought it begged the question: why are there so many undead fascists aimlessly wandering around in video games right now? Well, I did a little digging, and […]

Why The Borderlands 3 Marketing Campaign Is Genius

Since Borderlands 3 was announced, it seems like the series has been on everyone’s mind. This is due to Gearboxes’ absolutely flawless marketing of the series. Starting with when Borderlands 3 was first announced, they showed a good mix of cinematics and gameplay. With games like Borderlands 3, where people have known that it has […]

Doom Eternal: The Biggest Bomb Dropped at #BE3

Doom Eternal was definitely the highlight of Bethesda’s showcase at E3 2019.

Devolver Digital Shows Up to E3 in a Big Way

Devolver Digital, in the past, has never been a publisher that I paid much attention to. Sure they publish some awesome titles but I never thought much of the actual team themselves. E3 has shined a whole new light on them for me personally. With their grotesque but witty theatrics, they have created an experience […]

Adding Keanu Reeves Into Cyberpunk Was A Great Decision

There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that Cyberpunk is on a lot of people’s radars. Many would even consider it their most anticipated game over the past couple of years. Everyone already knew that CD Projekt Red would be showing their new futuristic shooter at E3 this year, but man, they played an amazing […]

Have you ever been curious to play the villain?

My first introduction to Evil Genius was finding a sealed copy on a stall at a car boot sale while searching for interesting and cheap games to play and the box artwork instantly drew my attention to this title. Yeah, I guess I’m a ‘judge a book by its cover’ kinda guy but there was […]

Jedi Fallen Order Looks Good, But I Don’t Trust EA

During the EA conference today, which started off E3, we got our first look at gameplay of Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order. After the 15 minutes we saw, I can honestly say that my opinions on the game have changed quite a bit. When I first heard about it, I was so uninterested that this […]
