E3 2016

E3 hands-on: For Honor

For Honor is one of those games that watching someone play a level of does no justice to the amazing gameplay systems present. When I first saw the game, I thought it was a rather pretty, but otherwise generic hack and slash. However everyone who played it spoke to me about it in the same revered tones that I think were uttered when the bread slicer was invented. This year I managed to get some ha...

E3 showcase: Civilization VI makes cities come to life

Did you know that Civilization is 25 years old? I try not to think about how old my favourite franchises are, because it reminds me in turn how old I am. I remember giving a lot of time to Civ 1 and upgrading to Windows 95 because Civ 2 required it. I was going to write about the amazing video I saw at E3, but it has been released to the public now, which will make it a lot easier for you to follo...

Video: Exclusive Killing Floor 2 for PS4 Interview

I have been a big fan of Killing Floor 2 for almost a year now since it was released on PC. The game is an absolute blast to play and when it comes to dismemberment and violence I think Killing Floor 2 might be leading the pack. I got to speak to John who is the President of Tripwire Interactive, and heavily involved with bringing all the Killing Floor 2 action to consoles this year. It looks like...

E3 interview with Jason VandenBerge about For Honor

While I was at E3 I was lucky enough to meet Jason VandenBerghe, creative director of For Honor. Ever since I saw him stroll onto stage with his cane and impressive beard it became a small hope of mine to meet the man. Of course we spoke about beards and warriors at length, because how could I resist? We also spent a bunch of time talking about For Honor, which was the most fun game I played at th...

Video: Exclusive Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare interview

One of the highlights of E3 2016 this year for me was chatting to Brian Horton – The Community Developer for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. In the interview he dropped the fact that the new Call of Duty will have zombies in it, which is something I was not aware of, and he hinted that Deniable Ops might be returning. Deniable Ops were made up of split screen co-op missions made popular by t...

E3 showcase: The Surge

Deck13, the studio that brought us Lords of the Fallen, has a new game they want to show off: The Surge. This time they swap the fantasy setting for a dystopian sci-fi world. It feels awfully familiar, but with a nice shiny coat of paint. In the future people make use of exoskeletons to carry out their jobs. Construction workers have forklifts on their arms, or massive welding arrays attached to t...

Video: Exclusive Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Interview

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is almost here and we got to chat to Mary DeMarle who is the Narrative Director on the sequel to Human Revolution. Naturally she could not let slip too much information about the story itself but I did manage to get one small golden nugget of info that I don’t think anyone else knows regarding a certain character in the game and some very big rewards. Check out our e...

Video Exclusive: PES 2017 Interview

Fans of football games such as Jarred will tell you that PES is one of the best football gamesto ever exist, especially if you look at what they did for PES 2016. I got to try out PES 2017 and play a full match against Garth, winning 2-0 I might add, and I can tell you now that it looks much better than the previous version. The FOX engine has been upgraded dramatically and we saw some comparison ...

Video Exclusive: Destiny: Rise of Iron Interview

Destiny fans will be happy to know that we managed to get an interview with Chris Barrett – the Game Director on the expansion pack – Destiny: Rise of Iron. This latest expansion pack will take players back to earth and by the sounds of it the story might be a little bit longer than that on The Taken King. There are also a ton of new weapons and enemies for you to kill and loot. Check ...

Video: E3 2016 vlog around the show floor

So today was the closing curtain on E3 2016 and to be honest I feel a little sad its over. My back and feet think it’s time to take it easy but not before I did a vlog of what the show floor is all about. So I took my camera and muscled up the forearm strength of Thor himself to bring you my E3 show room vlog below. Check out the video and let me know what you think of E3. All that glitters ...

Video: How big is the E3 show floor? Let’s show you (spoiler alert – it’s massive)

So if you didnt realize by now E3 is the size of 20 Titanic’s put together – that might not be accurate, but its big! I decided to take a point to point walk around from one end to the other to give you an idea of its massive size. If I had not have sped up the video you would have seen me walk for about 20 minutes and that was at a fast pace. E3 is split up by two very large halls, fo...

Video: E3 Day 3 – Wrap – Up (Is it over? Can we drink beer now?)

So E3 is all over ladies and gentleman and I think we can all agree there were some amazing games on show this year. From God of War to Quake and the new Zelda, there was something for everyone making this year one of the strongest E3 events to date. As promised here is your E3 wrap-up for the last day of E3 where we share our thoughts on what we saw on our final day. We even had those weirdos fro...
