Watch Conan O’Brien hilariously annoy E3 gamers

Watch Conan O’Brien hilariously annoy E3 gamers

Conan O’Brien took a slightly different approach to E3 coverage this year than we did at BGR. During his trip to E3, Conan took some time to see big titles like Sunset Overdrive, Forza and Entwined, but spent a majority of his visit harassing attendees, losing himself inside a virtual world and corralling everyone at Nintendo’s booth to watch him use his “fire rod” in Hyrule Warriors.

My 5 most anticipated games of 2015 after E3 this year

2015 is going to be the year that all the potential of next-gen finally comes to fruition. With an extensive amount of development behind them, both major developers and indie studios alike will have the experience necessary to start taking advantage of the power within the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. We can see glimmers of what this generation will be in some recent releases such as Watch Dogs and Titanfall, but we’ve only scratched the surface. In 2015, we’ll have arrived.

E3 2014 5 Best Games

The 5 best games I played at E3 2014

The 5 best games I played at E3 2014

As the sole member of the BGR E3 away team, I had to pick and choose very carefully to make sure I saw as many games as I possibly could during the three days the show floor was open. Since we’re still very early in the life cycle of the new generation of consoles, many of the most exciting prospective games aren’t due until next year, but don’t worry, 2014 won’t be a total wash.

E3 Preview: Metal Gear Solid V is enormous, ambitious and as weird as ever

If it had a release date, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain might have been my game of the show. I was a late comer to the series, but from the opening moment of the trailer at Sony’s press conference to the gameplay demo I saw on the last day of E3, I couldn’t have been more excited to finally get my hands on the first open world Metal Gear game. Sadly, it’ll be a while before any of us get to play MGS V. More →

Bloodborne E3 Preview

E3 Preview: Bloodborne is the faster, prettier sibling of Demon’s Souls

E3 Preview: Bloodborne is the faster, prettier sibling of Demon’s Souls

No matter how much you want it to be, Bloodborne is not a sequel to Demon’s Souls. Call it a spiritual successor if you want, but Hidetaka Miyazaki, Director of From Software, has been constantly telling the small group of press assembled to see Bloodborne in action for the first time that this is not another Souls game. Bloodborne is a different beast entirely. More →

E3 Day Two Report

E3 Day Two: I tried Sony’s virtual reality headset and it’s absolutely amazing

E3 Day Two: I tried Sony’s virtual reality headset and it’s absolutely amazing

The first day of E3, as you can read in my Day One Report, was relatively tame. In between my meetings with Microsoft, I had plenty of time to explore the show floor, take some pictures for the inevitable E3 gallery and eat lunch at a reasonable hour. On the second day, that was not the case. More →

The Order 1886 E3 Preview

E3 Preview: ‘The Order: 1886′ brings cinematic warfare to the PS4

E3 Preview: ‘The Order: 1886′ brings cinematic warfare to the PS4

In many ways, The Order: 1886 is just another third-person, cover-based shooter. As a member of the eponymous Order, you’ll be equipped with the requisite weapons and equipment you need to take on the rebel forces and the half-breed monsters that have overrun 19th century London. Where this game differentiates itself from other games in the genre is its visual flare — The Order: 1886 looks like a film, and it’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. More →

E3 Day One Report: Every game I played on the first day

My goal this year at E3 was to get hands-on time with as many games as I possibly could. Between booth tours, meetings and running around the show floor, I’m well on my way to exceeding my own expectations, so I figured I would keep a log of every game I played each day at E3.

E3 Preview: Fable Legends lets you play the hero and the villain

Fable, like Halo, is one of the many iconic series that have defined the Xbox for years. Although Fable and its sequels didn’t always live up to their potential, they have built a massive fan base, so any new entry will inevitably have gamers paying attention. Fable Legends, the next game in the series, is a complete departure from previous titles. Rather than embarking on an open-ended journey as a lone adventurer, Fable Legends groups you up with three companions, each of which have their own set of skills. More →

Ubisoft debuted some of the best-looking games of E3 2014 – here are the 5 most exciting ones

Ubisoft is on a roll. Between Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry and now Watch Dogs, Ubisoft has a stable of some of the most popular franchises on the market, and the company didn’t disappoint with another huge showing at E3 this year. There weren’t many surprises, but unlike some of the other conferences, many of the games Ubisoft presented will actually be on store shelves at some point this year. This isn’t an outline of the new generation — these are games we’ll all be playing in just a few months. More →

Watch Nintendo’s E3 2014 event right here

Once again, Nintendo will be forgoing a press conference this year in favor of an online streaming Digital Event. It might sound like a worrying concession from the struggling Japanese company, but stage presence doesn’t make much of a difference when no one’s buying your home console. We need to see properties both new and old at this event to give us a reason to get excited about Nintendo again. More →

Live coverage: Sony’s huge PlayStation press conference from E3 2014

It might not have been what we expected, but Sony is coming into E3 2014 as the console maker to beat. With more exclusives, better specs and a less imposing price tag, the PS4 won the first battle of the new generation. Now, Sony might have taken an early lead, but with all the recent changes over at the Xbox camp, the most popular video game console of the generation needs to keep getting better to stay on top.
