While you were busy on Sunday relaxing or spending time with your family, far more important things were going down on the West Coast. The biggest video game conference of the year kicked off with huge events from two of the biggest game studios in the world, and their press conferences were both action-packed. We saw previews of some of the biggest titles set to launch this year and beyond, and in this post we’ll recap all of the biggest announcements that you missed from over the weekend. More →
In an interesting turn of events, EA will be the first to take the stage on Sunday for its E3 2016 press conference. Traditionally, EA has held its press event on Monday afternoon, but having opted not to have a booth on the show floor this year, the publisher is putting all of its eggs in one basket on Sunday at 4:00PM EDT.
For years, Flower has been the game that I’ve shown friends and family when I want to prove to them that gaming isn’t all about shooting aliens and screaming at strangers over the Internet. Flower is beautiful, tranquil and meaningful, but after all these years, I think a new game has finally taken its place.
After spending several hours with the Star Wars Battlefront beta earlier this fall, I wasn’t convinced that EA and DICE had been able to rekindle the magic of the original series. I was also willing to give the small slice of the game available during the beta the benefit of the doubt. After all, Battlefront and Battlefront II thrived on mountains of content.
Sadly, the new Battlefront comes up a little short in that regard. More →
Two weeks ago, EA announced that it would hold an open beta for Star Wars Battlefront in early October. For fans of the series, it’s going to be a long second half of September, but while you’re waiting for the beta to kick off, why not check out some leaked footage from the game’s closed alpha test?

One of the most highly anticipated releases of the holiday season is getting a beta. PlayStation announced on Tuesday that the PS4 beta for Star Wars Battlefront will open in “early October,” over a month before the game launches. According to the blog post, the beta will be a “technical test,” featuring three distinct modes to play. More →
There were few third-party games as anticipated as Star Wars Battlefront at E3 2015. I wasn’t as pleased with the reboot as I’d expected to be, but I only had a chance to play a single match on a single map. Battlefront only really thrives once you get a hang of the character classes and learn the maps backwards and forwards.
Unfortunately, we aren’t going to have that opportunity for another few months, but there are gamers out there who are currently participating in the closed alpha, and one of them decided to share some footage from the game. More →
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 →
If you tuned in for the Xbox E3 2015 event earlier today, you might find it hard to believe that other studios have to follow up one of the most impressive presentations in recent E3 history. But the show must go on, and EA is in the unenviable position of holding its own press conference right after Microsoft. More →
