In the post-E3 world, gameplay videos have continued to leak out from every corner of the Internet. We shared the trailers from each press conference during the week of E3 2015, but today we’ve decided to collect the ten best gameplay videos from the entire show. More →

Batman: Arkham Knight PC Problems

‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ PC Problems Are a Harsh Reminder that Preorders Suck

‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ PC Problems Are a Harsh Reminder that Preorders Suck

By all accounts, Batman: Arkham Knight is both the best game in the series and one of the crowning achievements of the new generation. Every mission feels fresh, every twist feels earned and the Batmobile feels kinda like the Batmobile — but the game is all but unplayable on PC. More →

After a few depressingly tame months of Games with Gold (save for Massive Chalice, of course), Microsoft has taken a step in the right direction for the month of July. In celebration of the two-year anniversary of Games with Gold, Microsoft announced on Thursday that Xbox One owners with Gold subscriptions will now get two new free games every month. More →

Go Behind the Scenes of ‘Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5′ in a Brand New Trailer

The gaming community is sick to death of the endless stream of sequels, reboots, remasters and revivals that publishers have been trotting out over the past two console generations, but there are certain franchises that we still aren’t ready to be put to bed. One of those franchises is Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, which is returning to PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One this fall. More →

Legendary Nintendo Designer Explains Why the Wii U Flopped So Hard

Legendary Nintendo Designer Explains Why the Wii U Flopped So Hard

Yes, it’s fair to say that the Wii U has been a disaster for Nintendo, which has seen its newest console get badly outsold by both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, thus forcing it to enter the realm of smartphone games for the first time to generate much needed extra revenue. Legendary game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, who was the creative mind behind both the Mario and Zelda franchises, tells NPR that people stayed away from the Wii U because they flat-out didn’t understand what they were supposed to do with it.

Buy an Xbox One and Get Any Game for Free – Here’s What You Need to Know

If you’ve managed to avoid buying one of the new game consoles for this long, it’s probably either because you have no interest in picking one up or you’re just waiting for the perfect moment to strike. In the week following E3, Microsoft is doing its best to offer that perfect moment by giving away a free game of your choice with any Xbox One console sale. More →

With all the exciting news coming out of Los Angeles during E3 last week, you might be one of the many gamers who decided it was finally time to rush out and buy a PlayStation 4. But now that’s you’ve spent a few hundred dollars on the console, what are you supposed to play? It might be a good idea to start in the Free-to-Play section of the PlayStation Store, which got a huge boost this week. More →

E3 Awards: The Best Games of E3 2015

Just as quickly as it arrived, E3 2015 has packed its bags and ditched the Los Angeles Convention Center once again, leaving in its wake enough excitement to fill up a calendar year. Microsoft held the most consistently entertaining conference I’ve ever attended, Sony tried to make all of our dreams come true and Nintendo wound up apologizing for its lineup.

But none of that matters — I know that there’s only one thing you care about: Who won E3?

Star Wars Battlefront Preview

‘Star Wars Battlefront’ Isn’t the Reboot I Was Looking For

‘Star Wars Battlefront’ Isn’t the Reboot I Was Looking For

By on June 19, 2015 at 5:45 PM.

Of all the games we knew about before E3 2015 kicked off this week, Star Wars Battlefront might have had the highest profile. Few other games have the pedigree and history of the Battlefront series, fading away before its time with an ambitious third entry canceled before Pandemic Studios could ship it.

After years of silence, Battlefield developer DICE decided to take up the mantle and reboot the series itself. It was one of the biggest reveals of E3 2013, and two years later, I’ve finally had a chance to play it. More →

Distraught Nintendo Fans Need to Chill Out: The New Wii U Games are Fun

Distraught Nintendo Fans Need to Chill Out: The New Wii U Games are Fun

By on June 19, 2015 at 11:10 AM.

Spending all my waking hours on the show floor at E3 2015, I’ve been out of the loop for the most part when it comes to the actual fan reactions from the announcements earlier this week. After Sony and Microsoft blew the doors off their respective venues, I assumed that Nintendo fans would be chomping at the bit for some huge revelations.

What they got instead was a blocky Metroid spinoff, a three-player Zelda game, an Animal Crossing board game and an English translation of an RPG that came out 25 years ago. Needless to say, Nintendo fans were unhappy. More →

PS4 Backwards Compatibility

Sorry, PS4 Owners… Sony Says No Backward Compatibility for You

Sorry, PS4 Owners… Sony Says No Backward Compatibility for You

Microsoft had a heck of an E3 this year. From the first announcement to the last demonstration, the company’s E3 press conference was a fan-favorite in 2015. And the company’s Minecraft demo on HoloLens was absolutely mind-blowing. It was a much-needed win for Microsoft, which has been lagging behind Sony since their current-generation video game consoles first launched ahead of the holidays in 2013.

The first announcement Microsoft made during its E3 event was Xbox One backwards compatibility, which will allow Xbox One owners to play many of their old Xbox 360 games on their new consoles. PS4 owners have been wondering whether or not the same feature would be added to the PlayStation 4, and now they finally have their answer. More →
