Steam is where you go to buy cheap games you will probably never play, on your custom built PC that cost more than an apartment. The average PC gamer has over 400 games in their Steam library that they have never played. That is a shocking stat that we just made up but it sounds about right. Almost as much fun as actually playing games on PC is going online and saying frame rates don't matter or that you can't see any real difference between 720p and 1080p.

2017 was a disastrous year for EA, including a laughably bad E3 presentation and the Star Wars Battlefront 2 loot box debacle. The company has spent much of this year apologising for these decisions, and this formed a recurring theme during EA Play. Gone were the Influencers and Game Changers, the phrase “Creative Cave” was uttered precisely zero times and EA CEO Andrew Wilson was limited to two appearances, one of which was to effectively apologise for the company’s actions. This year, EA delved extensively into sci-fi, shooters and sports and, with a couple of exceptions, provided a co...

Opening the theme-park decorated “Bethesdaland” press briefing, Global VP of PR and Marketing Pete Hinds walked out on stage and promised a showcase that would be “an experience at E3 unlike anything else.” What followed was a 40 minute trailer supercut in essence that put Bethesda’s upcoming projects front and centre, highlighting how bizarre and unique (for better or worse) these games and initiatives have the potential to be. Fortunately, what lacked was a great deal of cringe, and unfortunately, this is likely what was being referred to as “unlike an...

It must be hard being the E3 king. After blowing everyone away in 2015 with Final Fantasy VII Remake and Shenmue 3, Sony has had to maintain this newfound reputation of nonstop bombshell announcements and mic-drop moments. It managed to pull it off last year with Death Stranding, although we could all tell that the well was running dry. This year, it was obvious that Sony is starting to scrape the bottom. This was apparent with Days Gone, the open-world zombie game announced at last year’s E3. Back then it was humdrum at best and this year’s demo proved no better, highlighting its QTE com...

Before we start, real talk: Ubisoft has copped a bit of a flogging to the reputation lately, despite releasing some decent games in the past few years amongst the turmoil. So it was up to the company coming into E3 to leave all that behind and come out swinging, and boy did they give it a red hot go, starting off by bringing out Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto and Bill Trinen to announce Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. The unlikely crossover titles teams Mario with the Rabbids characters as you battle to restore the Mushroom Kingdom after universal upheaval sees Peach, Luigi and co put in d...

A new console usually brings with it unfounded grandstanding, a lot of hypothetical scenarios but little on day-to-day life with this new box. And in a year where Microsoft’s big tentpoles, Gears of War and Halo, are still being developed and where the platform partnerships seem to be going Sony’s way, you’d think that this would be the Scorpio Power Hour. Yes, we got some of that and more mentions of 4K than pixels in a 4K monitor, but this year’s Xbox Briefing somehow had even more game announcements. Starting with the showstopper, the Xbox One X (formerly Project Scorpio) is the pre...
