  • E3 2018: Kingdom Hearts 3 — The E3 Trailers kingdom hearts 3How many trailers does one game need? If you ask us, Kingdom Hearts 3 doesn’t have enough, but this year it got three. One premiered during Sony’s press conference, one during Microsoft’s, and one during Square’s own — though in that case it was just a variant of the Sony version with a few extra clips mixed in. Wanna watch?
    We’ve posted both relevant trailers below. The first revealed a world based around Frozen. With her ice powers, Elsa can explode a Heartless with a dead shot from 50 feet away — pretty boss, but she doesn’t look very confident about ...

  • E3 2018: Namco Announces Tales Of Vesperia Definitive Edition tales of vesperia definitive editionWho here is a fan of the Tales series? How’d you like one of its finest hours remastered with new content? You got it today.

  • E3 2018: Elder Scrolls 6 Confirmed By Bethesda elder scrolls 6Is the wait finally over? What did Bethesda say regarding Elder Scrolls 6?
    They revealed….it’s gonna be a thing! That’s all we learned, but we’ll take it. A short thirty-second trailer, premiering during Bethesda’s E3 conference last night, showed off a large render of a (likely) very small portion of the world they’re hard at work crafting.
    “Look at me, aren’t I pretty?” it says.
    It’s been a long time since the main Elder Scrolls series had an update. Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim was released back in 2011 and is now playable on every device known to man, including smart fridges. The time ...
  • E3 2018: New Trailers For Dragon Quest XI, Octopath Traveler And Final Fantasy XIV octopath travelerWhy did Square Enix host an E3 livestream this year? That’s the question people are still asking, even after it’s over. Why did we get a trailer about a deaf guy beating people up instead of FF7 Remake? Where was that mysterious Avengers game they announced months ago? And why even host their own event if all their good trailers made their debut during other presentations?
    Like the owl and his Tootsie Roll pop, the world may never know. But at least we got some new footage of games that may not be grabbing the kind of media attention FF7 Remake ...
  • E3 2018: Fire Emblem Three Houses Announced For 2019 fire emblem three housesHow nice is it that we can take new Fire Emblem games for granted now? Like clockwork, another one was announced this morning during Nintendo’s E3 presentation. What’s the story behind Fire Emblem Three Houses?
    The same grid-based tactical screen is returning, but with some new twists thrown in. Instead of facing your enemies one-on-one, you’ll be able to command several characters at once. Your opponents will also be able to do this, so mastering the new technique is a necessity.
    But an even more startling element we observed was the presence of an overworld. We saw characters freely walking around a ...

    In the video game industry, it’s easy to think that the best thing to do is work with a major publisher or developer. But when you have bad experiences with them, or you know your team could do better on their own, the desire to make your own games starts to drive you.
    That’s what’s going on with Platinum Games right now. For despite making Bayonetta 3 for Nintendo and making Nier: Automata 2 for Square Enix, they’re really wanting to make their own ...
