With the explosion of augmented reality game Pokémon Go earlier this year, the latest installments in the ongoing Pokémon narrative series, Sun and Moon, have become some of the franchise’s most eagerly awaited games. And that is saying something, because those games have not gone out of fashion in twenty years. Though it is expected to fit roughly the same plot that most of the other games have, there is a lot that makes it stand out from its predecessors. Showing off a little of what they have up their sleeves, Nintendo released a short free demo on the eStore earlier today. (more…)

One of the most talked about games at E3 is Batman: Arkham City. The oh-so-anticipated sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum won’t release until October 21st but it’s being played again and again by those lucky bastards at E3. G4 is you’re channel to keep up with what’s going on live at the convention and they talked to Warner Bros.’, Sefton Hill as well as showed off two lengthy demos of game play.

The first video shows quite a bit of game play as Catwoman. Oh yeah, if you haven’t heard you can play as the slinky feline, beating up thugs and stealing their diamonds. She’s a fully fleshed out character with her own moves and gadgets. Plus, you can crack her whip to disarm opponents or trip ’em up. Feisty. As you’ll be able to see in the video her story intertwines with Batman‘s.

Besides the addition of the massive map of Gotham to tool around in they’ve also improved the detective mode (hooray no more blue screen!) and added additional moves. The next video shows off some awesome new take downs and the fighting mechanisms have been amped to allow Batman to take on 25 thugs at a time!

Ahhhh, Portal.

For so long, there was no news about your sequel, and then at the PlayStation E3 Press Conference, we had out first glimpse at you. It was everything fans of the original could have hoped for, even with the long wait to its release in 2011.

For those that don’t know, Portal was a game packaged in the “Orange Box” for the XBox 360, PS3, Mac and PC. It combined several games created by Valve – Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Team Fortress 2, and Portal.

Portal was a ground-breaking game that not only had a warped sense of humor, but also allowed you to experiment with physics. You were a test subject known as Chell, who obtained a gun that allowed you to fire portals at surfaces to instantly move from one place to another to escape an Aperture Science testing facility.
