The Three E show is officially over. It didn’t end without me getting to check out some interesting things on the last day. I spent most of the day running around to different meeting halls. At one point during the day I made it out to the promotional food truck for Gauntlet, which had been spending the week giving out free turkey legs and candy apples. The line had closed because they ran out of turkey, but the man turning people away said I could wait in line for an apple. When I got to the front I told the chef “I would like all of the candy apples that I can carry please.” He proceeded to hand me a box of 40 peanut rolled, candy dipped apples. Best E3 giveaway ever.

The second day of the Electronic Three has come to an end. Day two was cooler, calmer and just more relaxed in general because I knew where things were and what I wanted to see. Unfortunately, thanks to mandatory ID check at EVERY entrance, I missed my Call of Duty Advance Warfare hands on meeting. Fortunately I have a pretty good idea what a COD game will play like, and I was able to get hands on with a larger variety. (more…)

It’s that magical time of year again when all of the big developers in gaming bring their warez to Los Angeles in an effort to draw the attention of the world. I spent a lot of the day getting a feel for the floor, and experiencing the sweltering heat over at the Microsoft booth. (more…)

Nintendo has continued what they started last year, doing away with the traditional on stage press conference in favor of their digital show, Nintendo Direct. What hasn’t changed over the years, however, is their strong showing of first party titles that has kept their console business alive all these years. E3 2014 is no different,...

E3 2014: Sony Press Conference Impressions

I have to give Sony the award for most oddly paced press conference of E3 2014. Sony had a strong showing in the first half, then a lull with a bump in the form of Mortal Kombat X gameplay, then a huge dip again with a strong finish. The most confused I’ve been all day. With that said, there were a lot of cool announcements that...

E3 2014: Microsoft Press Conference Impressions

Microsoft doesn’t hold back on the games as it opened E3 2014 with a solid show. The company made their case for buying an Xbox One, but what really sold me with this conference is that Microsoft didn’t try to sell the audience on the console itself. It did so indirectly, announcing exclusives while focusing all their attention...
