Get with it, Sony.

Killzone developer Guerilla Games and Sony revealed new IP Horizon Zero Dawn at E3, which—unlike so many other video games—has a woman as its protagonist. That's great, but what's less great is how nervous Sony was about introducing such an unheard of concept to their audience.

No Legend of Zelda at E3: Is Nintendo Giving Up on the Wii U?

Pour one out.

"Expect the unexpected," I wrote less than an hour before Nintendo's digital E3 2015 media briefing yesterday, and what we got was certainly that: no notable new Wii U games announced—at all—and not even a glimpse of the next true Zelda installment. What in the heck happened? The obvious yet sad explanation is that this is likely the beginning of the end for the Wii U.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
