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)

Battleborn [X-15 Hands On]

I tossed my battle axe across the map, all while bursting forward with my shield out in front and my four comrades giving covering fire from behind. This was just the first minute of Gearbox Software's Battleborn.

At X-15, Gearbox had a playable demo of one of their co-op campaign mode in Battleborn. Ten characters were available to choose, all vibrant and unique. I could immediately associate the "hero shooter" with Borderlands just through the personality on the character screen.

What I wanted to see at E3 2015

It's no secret that E3 2015 was absolutely fantastic for gamers. The big names had some bombs to drop and the real winners were us the gamers. To say that it's going to be a very expensive Holiday this year is a massive understatement. But there were some things that stood out for me, a few things that I wanted to see at E3 that weren't shown or mentioned.

Fallout 4 – Best. Fallout. Ever.

We were not left in the lurch when Bethesda unrolled all the cool new features in their next iteration.

Oh my God, you guys. That was awesome, wasn't it? It was just phenomenal. I'm legit having trouble pacing myself, because even looking down on my caringly crafted notes so I could talk about everything in cohesive order, I just want to regurgitate fangirl rainbows all over my screen.

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.
