Now that the most wonderful time of the year for us gaming nerds has come and gone, I think it’s high time to get into the biggest hits and misses of what was, without question, a truly exceptional show. It’s difficult to think of another year (without any new console announcements) that was even close to matching this one in terms of excitement and excellent game announcements, and that’s really the best thing that could possibly be said about it. And so ladies and gentlebastards, without further interruption, I give you the 17 biggest hits and misses of E3 2015! (more…)

Fallout 3 holds a special place in all our gaming gamer hearts, but that doesn’t stop Smoosh Games from giving it the Honest Game Trailer Treatment. Even when blasting some particular aspect of the game, you can’t help but feel their love for the very thing they are attempting to lambaste. This might be the most conflicted Love/Hate relationship in the Known Universe, but maybe it’s more simply a Love/Annoyed relationship. (more…)

Every once in a while you hear about someone doing something that is just amazingly ridiculous. Today’s case-in-point – a Fallout fan was determined to pre-order the fourth installment of the series, though he decided to do so in a most unconventional manner. In fact, he shipped a box containing more than 2000 bottle caps right to Bethesda. A pic of the caps and the letter that accompanied the box are below. (more…)

Batman-Arkham-Knight-3

Batman: Arkham Knight continues to look fantastic. Personally, I find myself more excited about the Barbara Gordon/Batgirl/Oracle prequel expansion that is included in the extended season pass. Oracle will play a major supporting role in this latest incarnation of the Batman Arkham series and it will be nice to play her original Bat-themed-alter-ego. There are some new posters and the new trailer that debuted at E3, check them out below. (more…)

Games, games, games, and more games. You’d expect nothing less from Electronic Arts Expo (E3) ’cause, well, it is the biggest video game convention after all. But,this year has truly been one of the best in way of announcements and mouth dropping trailers. Microsoft, Playstation, and Nintendo all have new systems that have been out for a few years. Developers are now really catching up to the new platforms. There are so many titles rolling out between now and 2016.

Yesterday, we rounded up all the trailers and announcements for Microsoft, Ubisoft, and Playstation. Now we put together all the visual splendor from Nintendo.

While the Wii U didn’t get much reception upon its initial release, it has been trending lately thanks to those wonderfully cute Amiibos and the smash hit Splatoon. Then, of course, there’s Nintendo 3DS – the handheld gaming device that has stood the test of time.

Nintendo already hit up E3 at the start of the opening day announcing what games are launching for the near future. Here’s a roundup of some of the news and games Nintendo has been showing this week.:  (more…)

One of the main complaints (amongst many) about the series of Transformers movies by Michael Bay is that robots in disguise featured in them look nothing like the Transformers we know and love. Of course by that we mean that Bay’s VFX team took a significant departure in the look and style of all the assorted Autobots and Decepticons, so much so that they got their own name, “Bay-formers.” So a lot of you have been missing those good old days from the 80s, and someone has heard your call, and they work in the video game industry. If you’re looking for a taste of the old school then Platinum Games has a surprise for you this fall, and this your first look. (more…)

This is turning out to be the most exciting E3 in ages. All the major players have come out in full-force. If you thought Microsoft and Ubisoft toggled your joystick, wait until you see what’s next. Well… you don’t have to wait – a new challenger enters. It’s Sony! The purveyors of the Playstation revealed more on their upcoming line-up, including The Last Guardian (coming in 2016 to the PlayStation 4), Horizon Zero Dawn, Hitman, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and more. Watch the reveal trailer below: (more…)

George Miller’s Mad Max Fury Road is truly one of the most unique and adrenaline-fueled action films created to date. It’s packed with memorable and enjoyable characters and, of course, suped up monster cars. It’s filled with all the required thrills and spills – an all-out rush of visceral, kinetic power.

Avalanche Studios are hoping to do the same with gaming consoles this September with the release of their Mad Max video game. Can they live up to the movie? Watch the latest full trailer and decide for yourself.
