E3 2016: Final Fantasy XV Will Support Playstation VR…Sorta

by Peter Paltridgeon June 14, 2016
Tonight during Sony’s E3 presentation, Square’s solitary trailer revealed Final Fantasy XV will be compatible with Playstation VR….however, it doesn’t look like they mean the full game. It’s doubtful they would have had time to rewire everything to fit the new device anyway, so they’ve thrown in a few minigames and tasks that can be […]

E3 2016: Crash Is Back On PS4 (In Reruns)

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2016
When a playable level from Crash Bandicoot showed up in Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, a lot of people asked if it was a hint that Crash himself would be returning to Playstation, or even if Naughty Dog (the creators of Uncharted and Crash) would be making a new Crash game. Naughty Dog said “no, […]

E3 2016: Resident Evil VII Announced, Coming In Seven Months!

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2016
A trailer for a mystery game began playing during Sony’s E3 conference this evening. Shown in first-person, it was a man exploring a spooky old house after a call on the telephone told him to “get out, they’re coming.” He didn’t listen; in fact, he did the opposite. He even lifted the pot on the […]

E3 2016: The Last Guardian Has A Release Date!

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2016
Sony’s The Last Guardian had a ridiculously long development cycle, but the wait is almost over. It’s going to appear on October 25, 2016 — which as irony would have it is one month after Final Fantasy XV, a game that took even longer to create (ten entire years). What was the holdup with this […]

E3 2016: Hideo Kojima Returns, Announces “Death Stranding”

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2016
My favorite moment of E3 so far is the curtains lifting, the panels of a walking board lighting up one by one and Hideo Kojima, gaming genius jilted by Konami, descending them. “I’m back!” he uttered, which is all he needed to say. And apparently, he had enough time between his firing and now to […]

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 […]
