Call of Duty Switches Loyalties, Demos Multiplayer

by Peter Paltridgeon June 16, 2015
After years of unquestioning loyalty to the XBox brand (for reasons we’re sure have nothing to do with cash donations under the table), 2015 marked the first E3 in quite a while that the Microsoft conference played out without new Call of Duty footage. Instead, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 made its worldwide debut […]

Sony’s The Last Guardian Comes Out Of Hibernation

by Peter Paltridgeon June 16, 2015
Originally announced back in 2009, Sony’s The Last Guardian had become somewhat of an industry joke. As the follow-up game to both the critically-acclaimed Ico and the equally revered Shadow of the Colossus, both for PS2, it was the one game every reporter asked Sony about, year after year, only to get the response “we’re […]

E3’s Biggest Question Mark Is Something Called “Dreams”

by Peter Paltridgeon June 15, 2015
Sony’s Microsoft-stomping E3 conference had several jaw-dropping moments, but one of the most peculiar was the world premiere of something the company called “Dreams.” From the creators of Little Big Planet, the aim was to produce something that would encourage creativity, but in a different way than LBP. We saw statues being molded with the […]

Final Fantasy VII Remake Confirmed, And You’re Not Dreaming Right Now

If you don’t believe me, that’s because you haven’t been to any other website that reports any kind of news. Go ahead and look, I’ll wait. Back yet? Yeah, it’s real; we’re living in this world. Honestly, I still don’t believe it either. After so many false rumors and promises, after so many cruel teasers […]

South Park: The Stick Of Truth Is Getting A Sequel!

by Peter Paltridgeon June 15, 2015
A giant, Mecha-Streisand-sized surprise was just dropped at the Ubisoft E3 press conference. Remember when South Park: The Stick of Truth was in development and had to go through two different game studios, and faced a vaporware fate at one point because THQ went bankrupt? Trey Parker and Matt Stone found the experience so wearying […]

by Peter Paltridgeon June 15, 2015
The highlight of EA’s press conference came toward the end, where a big chunk of gameplay footage from their upcoming galactic multiplayer shooter, Star Wars Battlefront, was shown for the first time. The footage ran from a PS4 and was taken entirely from the Hoth map, because where else? Forty simultaneous characters were engaged in […]

This afternoon EA revealed the trailer for Mirror’s Edge 2, now known as Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst, during their E3 press conference.

Transformers: Devastation Coming from Platinum Games

by Peter Paltridgeon June 15, 2015
Somewhere on a deserted desert island, a lonely old castaway found a bottle washed up on shore. He pulled its cork out and a genie emerged, who told the long-bearded man he would be granted one wish. Immediately, the man said “I WISH THE MAKERS OF BAYONETTA WOULD MAKE A TRANSFORMERS GAME!” And that brought […]

XBox One Now Backwards Compatible

by Peter Paltridgeon June 15, 2015
As consoles have become infinitely more complicated and complex, backwards compatibility is one of those features that has had to be left by the wayside (in favor of “remastering” games that were just sold two years ago and selling them again on the new system, $$ka-ching$$). Sony’s solution was Playstation Now, a streaming service that […]
