E3

  1. Games for Girls? How About Games for Everyone?

    Gender-neutral games are too hard to animate.

    The portrayal and treatment of women in and around video games is a sore subject for a lot of us. It’s been talked about to death, and yet it still doesn’t seem like we’re making much progress. It’s a very polarizing but uniformly upsetting issue that lingers on in this otherwise great community like cat pee on an oriental rug.

  2. A Great Big List of Games from E3 with Playable Female Characters

    All aboard the hype train!

    Like many of you, me and my fellow Weekend Editor Sam Maggs and I were more than a little irked by the whole Ubisoft kerfuffle earlier this week. It almost made us forget about that long ago time (last Monday) when we were really excited about the stuff coming out of E3. Then we realized...we're still excited! And though female representation still has a long way to go in the gaming industry, we're happy to report there are plenty of other upcoming games that include playable female characters.

    Zelda Producer Says No Lady-Lead

  4. My Painfully Short Hands-On With Super Smash Bros. for Wii U at Nintendo’s Smash Fest

    And my comparatively long tale about it.

    Last night, hundreds of Smash Bros. fans lined up outside of Best Buy to get a chance to play the Wii U version of Smash Bros. before its release this holiday season, and that was just at my local Best Buy. But we were patient, and we waited, and we finally got the chance to play the game. You know what? It was worth it.

  7. Conan the Clueless Gamer Reviews Smash Bros. for Wii U and Fears for Our Future

    Quick! Do you know who the second President of the U.S. was? Now watch.

    Nintendo was careful in its selection of who should get to play the new Smash Bros. games before they're released, and Conan was clearly the man for the job. He got his hands on the game last night as many Smash fans did, myself included (more on that later), and proved that a game can never be too accessible.

  9. We Might be Getting a Lady-Led Zelda Game, But We’re Definitely Getting Marriage Equality in Final Fantasy XIV

    +2 Cha -2 Str

    Above, you'll find the E3 demonstration of the WiiU's first traditional installment of the Zelda franchise, and Nintendo higherups are hinting that the game's focus may be a break from tradition, in many areas. At the very end of the video we're treated to some good old fashioned monster fighting action, in which Link is portrayed even more androgynously than usual, lacking even his characteristic Master Sword and green tunic. Zelda director and producer Eiji Aonuma has pointed out to GamesBeat that "no one explicitly said that that was Link." He also told Japanese outlet 4Gamer that one of the goals Nintendo has for this installment of the franchise was "[a game] where it wouldn't even matter if Zelda is actually a princess, or not." Rest assured that we will keep you updated. And in the meantime, bask in the knowledge that Square Enix will bring marriage equality to Final Fantasy XIV in upcoming Patch 2.4. Previously in a Zelda-Led Zelda Game

  14. Catch up on News and Gameplay You Missed From Nintendo’s Digital E3 2014 Press Conference

    Nintendo is finally learning to tap into its audience's interests, and it's awesome.

    Nintendo still hasn't won me over on the Wii U, but their press conference was easily the most fun to watch. We got battling Nintendo execs, lots of games that deviate from the "dude with a gun and some photorealistic graphics" genre, and plenty of Smash Bros. and Zelda news.

  17. Watch Nintendo’s E3 Press Conference Live at 12PM ET [Updated With Replay]

    Is your body re—oh, you know the drill. Prepare for Zelda news.

    The E3 show floor opens today, but Nintendo needs to have its say first with their online-only "digital event" that is basically an E3 press conference minus all the live theatrics. Nintendo has been pulling out the stops lately to try to build as much momentum as they can behind the failing Wii U, so expect some big new announcements.

    Mostly lots of dudes, shooting, and explosions.

    Can we get more passive-aggressive digs at Microsoft this year?

    What will we see from Sony tonight? Microsoft focused entirely on games, but Sony's big elephant in the room is their VR headset that we all got a look at earlier this year. How will they split the time between hardware and software, and how much emphasis will be put on Project Morpheus? We'll find out at 9PM ET.
