E3 2014 Preview: Assassin’s Creeed Unity

Keeping up with the yearly updates of Assassin’s Creed, Ubisoft is offering up a new iteration this year that moves the action from pirating to the French Revolution.

E3 2014 Preview: Dragon Age Inquisition

Dragon Age Inquisition was at the absolute top of my must see list for this E3 but scheduling did not look like it was going to allow for it. Thankfully, I had the right window and EA was kind enough to let me squeeze in to see it. Mirroring my experience with Mass Effect 3 [...]

A lot of games I saw at E3 this year were games I was looking forward to and most were new iterations of established series.

E3 2014 Preview: Dying Light

Dying Light is a game that I have been very curious about since last E3. The trailer looked dark and visceral with moral ambiguity and an emphasis on movement. That being said,we have been misled by trailers in the past and given that this comes from some of the people responsible for the ultimately disappointing [...]

E3 2014 Preview: Mortal Kombat X

Mortal Kombat X was definitely a game I was hoping to get a look at when I was heading to E3. Standing in line for Batman Arkham Knight and seeing the line for Mortal Kombat stretching ridiculously far into the convention center after the place had been open less than an hour made me realize [...]

E3 2014 Preview: Batman Arkham Knight

Of all the games that I was looking forward to seeing at the show this year, Arkham Knight was on the top of my list. I loved the two Rocksteady Akrham games and I have very high hopes for this one. Still, I was grappling with the sadness of it getting bumped out of 2015 [...]

Here it is, Day 3, the final day of the show and probably the busiest ones I had of the show. I had a lot of appointments, some made on the fly and what I didn’t have a lot of was time. This worked out in some ways and totally fucked me in some others. [...]
