E3 2016: Ubisoft Shows Off Watch Dogs 2

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2016
Ubisoft debuted the first-ever gameplay footage from the upcoming Watch Dogs 2 during their E3 presentation this afternoon. People were hoping the game would be an improvement over the mediocre original. Even if the game DOES play better (and it looks mostly the same), I don’t think I could stand protagonists like this for long. […]

E3 2016: Coon And Friends Are Back In “South Park: The Fractured But Whole”

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2016
Last year Ubisoft made the surprise announcement that they would be making a second South Park game, a follow-up to The Stick of Truth. This year they showed off everything Trey Parker and Matt Stone have been working on, and it did not disappoint. The trailer shows what one can assume is the opening scene […]

E3 2016: Become A Sim Pirate With Rare’s Sea Of Thieves

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2016
One of the most anticipated games of the XBox’s future lineup is Sea of Thieves. It’s what may hope will be the comeback for the fallen studio known as Rare, which sunk into a pit of disappointing follow-ups and Kinect titles over the last 15 years. Most were pleased with the first real glimpse they […]

E3 2016: New Gears Of War 4 Details, Game Footage

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2016
Microsoft kicked off its E3 conference this morning with the most open look at Gears of War 4 yet. Dynamic weather, big new weapons, and is that the wrinkled fogey face of Marcus? Probably. Here’s the bullet list of features the game sports: New Story, Heroes and a Nightmare Reborn: The first chapter of an […]


E3 2016: Whoa, Look At Scalebound

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2016
The E3 conference from Microsoft felt mostly underwhelming, except for the part where the president of Platinum Games came on stage and said “This is the largest boss battle we’ve ever created.” If you’re familiar with Platinum’s past work, which always goes for the extreme, this is quite the statement. I immediately sat up. We […]

E3 2016: CD Projekt Red Announces Gwent, The Witcher Card Game

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2016
A week ago, a European trademark filing was spotted that pointed to the creation of a stand-alone title for Gwent, the card game previously playable only within The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It was legit: today during Microsoft’s E3 conference, the first trailer appeared. Gwent: The Witcher Card Game works a lot like other card-collecting […]

E3 2016: New Final Fantasy XV Battle Shown Off At Microsoft’s Stage

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2016
Few people were expecting Final Fantasy XV’s first E3 appearance to be during the Microsoft conference, but that’s what happened. We expect much more of this game to be shown during Sony’s conference later this evening, but for now, enjoy this fight against a giant hand. This was one of two battles against gargantuan titans […]

E3 2016: Forza Horizon 3 Goes Down Under

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2016
It wouldn’t be an XBox release schedule without some form of Forza, and this year, Forza Horizon returns with an all-Australian setting. Developer Playground Games demoed Forza Horizon 3 this morning during Microsoft’s E3 conference. Here’s what to expect: Explore the Horizon Festival’s Largest and Most Diverse World Ever. Drive through the vast desert and […]

E3 2016: The New XBox One Controller

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2016
Microsoft is redesigning the XBox One controller again — they’re adding a new textured grip, an increased wireless range, and a few other tweaks. They’re small improvements, nothing too radical, though if you mean in the 80’s sense, yeah, these controllers are righteous. For you see, the new XBox One controller can be customized in […]

E3 2016: Microsoft Officially Announces Project Scorpio

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2016
Gamers started to worry when about two minutes of Microsoft’s E3 conference were left and we still hadn’t heard one mention of Scorpio, the “XBox One.5” that everyone knows is humming in a Microsoft R&D lab. Fortunately, they did take those last two minutes to confirm Scorpio with a new trailer. Unfortunately….confirm is all that […]
