Truly, the "where's the beef?" of gaming.
Fans at E3 were looking forward to Square Enix's first presentation in three years and what they got was ... well ... it was something.Read More
During E3, many trailers were dropped and shall continue to fill our gamer hearts with glee (I'll believe Kingdom Hearts 3 is real when it's in stores) one that immediately made me jump for joy was the trailer for Jump Force a Dragonball, Naruto, One Piece crossover fighting brawl with one special shinigami thrown in.Read More
Plus John Lasseter, the G7 summit, supercomputers and more!
EA Originals has released a trailer for their new game Sea of Solitude, and it is giving us deep Guillermo Del Toro meets Hayao Miyazaki melancholy feels. The title, in development by Jo-Mei Games, centers on a young woman named Kay, whose loneliness and sadness transforms her into a monster. After her transformation, she she drifts on a small boat through a deserted and partly submerged city, where she encounters other monsters and learns more about what happened to her.Read More
Microsoft currently has plans to develop not one but two brand new consoles for release sometime in the near future.Read More
Sony Was Concerned About Horizon Zero Dawn’s Female Protagonist, Like That’s Not Something People Want
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.Read More
Overgrown Toddler Plasters E3 With Posters Calling Anita Sarkeesian a ‘Freak,’ Meanwhile She’s Having the Time of Her Life
This year's E3 in Los Angeles has been full of goodies. Feminst Frequency's Anita Sarkessian is there taking in the sights and probably having way too much fun to care about one silly goose.Read More
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.Read More
We're definitely on the edge of our seats waiting for Batman: Arkham Knight.

Check out a few more posters plus an intense trailer fresh out of E3.Read More
Michonne will remember that.

California. Have to go to California.
In a childhood pipe dream-laden interview with Game Informer, Nintendo Treehouse's Erik Peterson revealed the rad new Nintendo World Championship trophy for this year's competition at E3 2015.Read More
The Legend of Zelda: The Unusual Punishment? Why, yes please.
Maker of comics and games and stuff Brian Lee created a humorous rumor generator for Nintendo's E3 2015 presentation. It looks legitimate down to the watermark, and it'd totally pass if not for the fact that the names and titles it comes up with are completely hilarious.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
Zelda Producer Says No Lady-Lead
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.Read More
E3 Men Look Exactly The Same

They've given us an unprecedented amount of access to new games and announcements so far with this dedicated stream, so keep your eye out for any last minute surprises before the show closes.Read More
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.Read More
