Ubisoft E3 2017 Showcase

E3 2017 has been a series of highs and lows, and now Ubisoft is set to take the stage. We've already seen a couple of their titles revealed including the official trailer for the pre-E3 leak of Assassin's Creed: Origins. 

Bethesda E3 2017 Showcase

Leading up to E3 2017 there were a couple of rumors that had been swirling around. A few have already been confirmed, thanks to the EA and Microsoft pressers that happened yesterday and earlier today respectively, now the biggest question of "is it true?" is pointed on Bethesda as they wind up for their late-night event. 

EA Play Kicks off E3 2017

Kicking off this year's E3 presentations will be an early entry from video game publishing/developing giant Electronic Arts. We've seen some of what they have to offer already with early trailers for Battlefront 2 and Need for Speed: Payback, but expect plenty of other titles to highlight the show this year as well. 

Easy money will be on franchise follow-ups for their sports titles including Madden, NHL, and FIFA but we can probably expect that EA has a couple of new titles planned for this year's show as well. 

Red Bull Proving Grounds Comes to Vancouver

 This past weekend the FGC eSports scene came down to Vancouver to find the best of the best in the GVRD, it was an open tournament that provided those in the area the opportunity to show off what Vancouver has to offer eSports and provide a fun environment for fans of the fighting genre to hang out, meet up with friends old and new and show off what they can do.

Square Enix Vancouver Showcase

This past week we had the opportunity to head down to a local event put on by the PR team behind all Square Enix’s recent and upcoming releases. We only had a short time to play through everything (2 hours) but we went hands-on with as much as humanly possible!

Below are some shots of the event, along with thoughts (previews) of the titles that were available to us and we had the most time (and fun!) with:

Flame x Blaze (MOBA)

BE3: The Bethesda Show

Oh, Bethesda. My faith in you is well-placed.

If you were able to catch the conference last night then you were probably as slippery and wet from salivating as I was. We weren't given a slew of games to look forward to over the next year like with other conferences, but we were given less a buffet and more tapas: smaller morsels, but oh god they're so delicious. Maybe I should stop talking while I'm waiting for dinner.

Radial Dialogue - Episode 13 - YouTube vs. Twitch

Hopefully by now you've all had a chance to look at the Mario Party 10 review that was posted up earlier this week, if not (or if you wanted to see it in operation live) we played through a Bowser Party tonight on Radial Dialogue! Jen played out the role of King Koopa and well... it was interesting, to say the least.

Geralt Gains a Dynamic Beard in Witcher 3

I'm a huge fan of games that pay attention to the small details. More often than not a game will get some bonus points, and even make me overlook other flaws, if they get the little things right. A prime example would be the Amazing Spider-man game, who took the time to animate web-cartridge reloads on Spider-man. It was a small touch that made the nerd in me crazy excited!

Radial Dialogue - Episode 11 - Twitch, Security and Skin

Welcome, fans! There’s plenty of talk and rage on the most recent episodes as Jen and I dig through a couple of stories that we had things to say about. Twitch was attacked recently, causing everyone to need a change of their passwords… good thing they don’t store your credit card information!

PlayStation Retrospective: Network Adaptor

Online gaming on PC has been around forever, but it took quite a while for it to be the norm on consoles. Older generations tried it ala Sega Channel and other outlets, but it really wasn't until the Network Adapter for Playstation 2 arrived in 2002 which is when it started to hit its stride and lay the groundwork for Xbox Live and PSN moving forward. If you're newer to gaming or younger than myself, you simply might take online gaming for granted. Hell, you might even take being online for granted also.
