So what can Nintendo E3 2019 bring? Well, they’ve promised a stack of games coming in 2019. They’re uniquely positioned to take advantage of the fact they’re not moving console generations like Microsoft or Sony. As such, they can show off a whole bunch of games without worry.
For Square Enix E3 2019, we’ve been promised Avengers and promised Final Fantasy VII. What else can they possibly offer?
Ubisoft has a whole bunch of potential good stuff coming, starting with Watch Dogs Legion. What surprises will we see at Ubisoft E3 2019?
Not expecting any big news from Bethesda here, as Starfield and Elder Scrolls VI have already been announced as not attending. So what’s on show for Bethesda E3 2019?
There were a whole lot of rumours and questions going into Xbox E3 2019. We were promised games, promised news on Xcloud and promised a new console. What did Microsoft deliver in the end?
EA Play 2019 was the first big show of E3 2019, and they promised new info on their highly anticipated Star Wars title, as well as updates to all their existing games. So what did we see?
With the annual corporate extravaganza that is E3 beginning this weekend, time to work out what’s coming up. The conference is likely to be comparatively weak this year, as we still wait for news of the new console generation to break properly. There are a few fun reveals planned, but it’s always worth remembering that all of this is just fun marketing. Everything we see should be treated with healthy scepticism and an understanding that what we see is not what we will necessarily get.
You’re never more than ten feet away from a rat. This is a well known aphorism about city life. God I wish the rats in A Plague Tale Innocence were ten feet away. Instead they’re clustering around, seemingly mere inches from my character. I can hear their chittering and squeaking as they wait for my meagre torch to go out. I could move out of the shadows to the safety of a brazier, but then I’d be seen by the guard. Instead I time my movement wrong, step too close to the and as the music swells, I am devoured by clambering rats in a verminous maelstrom of teeth and claws. A Plague Tale Innocence is wonderfully unpleasant and exhilaratingly tense.
The best games in the city building genre are time machines. A player should be able to run the game, begin building their metropolis and suddenly realise that they’ve lost an evening and gained an urban sprawl. Islanders manages to do this in a way most city builders don’t. It turns the whole process of building your city into a puzzle in and of itself.
Anthology series like Love Death and Robots always hold such fantastic promise. Love, Death and Robots as a title suggests this show could contain anything around those three ideas. Using the medium of animation, it can dive deep, with the sheer variety of content hopefully allowing for something every audience can enjoy. While the quality of each episode varies, the series as a whole is worth the minor time investment for the animation quality alone. Love Death and Robots is a new anthology series from Netflix. It’s a collection of 18 short animated episodes, each of varying lengths. These have been produced by a variety of studios. Which themselves have been adapted from a series of stories from sci fi writers. The series has been produced by David Fincher (Yes that one) and series creator Tim Miller with the scripts being adapted by Philip Gelat. Almost all of the episodes are science fiction based, with the subgenres varying between variations of Cyber, Steam and Diesel punk, Space Travel, Horror and more. . Since each episode is so short, and the effort required to buy in is so little, it’d be difficult to talk about each episode without spoiling them, but I did think there were a few standout episodes. Three Robots Adapted from a short story by John Scalzi, the second episode of the series is one of the strongest. Three Robots, on vacation in the ruins of a human city long after the apocalypse.
