Kazunori Yamauchi: PS3 was a “Nightmare”

During E3, GameSpot had a chance to interview Kazunori Yamauchi of Gran Turismo fame about the upcoming Gran Turismo Sport. While much of the interview revolved around the much anticipated sequel and how it will incorporate eSports and tournament play, Yamauchi’s standout quote was actually in reference to the PlayStation 3. The age of the PS3 for us was sort of a nightmare. We really had to deal with … Continue reading Kazunori Yamauchi: PS3 was a “Nightmare”

Miyamoto: Nintendo Strategically Remaining Quiet on NX

While Microsoft and Sony are publicly readying plans to iterate on their consoles, Nintendo has been quiet about its upcoming NX console. Over the past few months, all kinds of rumors about the NX have been circulating. We’ve heard that the console will be anywhere from XBOX One to Project Scropio’s in terms of power, that it will mark the return of cartridge-based systems, and even that the … Continue reading Miyamoto: Nintendo Strategically Remaining Quiet on NX

Initial Impressions: Fallout 4

One of the most obvious gaps in my gaming experience is that I’ve never put significant time into a Fallout or Elder Scrolls game. While an RPG will occasionally grab my attention, it’s not a genre I typically seek out. As a result, both of these franchises have slipped through the cracks…until now, of course. Recently, a pricing error on XBOX Live made Fallout 4 available for free to … Continue reading Initial Impressions: Fallout 4

Vince Zampella on Modern Warfare Remastered

During E3 last week, Eurogamer had a chance to interview Vince Zampella about his team’s upcoming game, Titanfall 2. Although the focus was squarely on the future for Zampella and the team at Respawn Entertainment, the interviewer was able to get Vince’s basic sentiment on Modern Warfare Remastered. In short, he wants to make sure that the developers “don’t fuck it up…” I told them – Don’t … Continue reading Vince Zampella on Modern Warfare Remastered

Smartphones Could be Playing GameBoy Cartridges in 2016

One announcement that flew under the radar last week at E3 was that of Hyperkin’s new Smart Boy peripheral. Known for its SupaBoy and RetroN 5 consoles, Hyperkin is no stranger to retro gaming hardware. The Smart Boy is a bit of a departure however, promising the ability to use your smartphone – android only for the time being – as an emulator for actual cartridge games. … Continue reading Smartphones Could be Playing GameBoy Cartridges in 2016

Criterion’s “Beyond Cars” Project Cancelled

Last year at E3, Criterion Games showed off a new IP in the early creative stages. Promising to move “beyond cars” with this title, footage was shown of a variety of vehicles from snowmobiles to helicopters. Just last month I predicted that EA would give this project a full reveal during their E3 press conference. After a no show at E3, we learned today that … Continue reading Criterion’s “Beyond Cars” Project Cancelled

Will PlayStation Neo/4K Launch in 2016?

For what feels like months now, rumors have been swirling about a mid-cycle upgrade for the PS4 and XBOX One. Although Sony and Microsoft remained tight-lipped about their iterative console strategy in the months before E3, both companies eventually revealed the existence of new boxes. Microsoft took a more traditional approach with their announcement, opting to close out their E3 press conference with a spec tease … Continue reading Will PlayStation Neo/4K Launch in 2016?

E3 2016 Favorites

E3 2016 was pretty incredible all around. From Microsoft’s hardware announcements to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s full reveal to Sony’s incredibly paced press conference, there was something for everyone this year. Here are a few of the games that stuck out to me above the rest… South Park: The Fractured But Whole While there was a time when South Park was among my … Continue reading E3 2016 Favorites

E3 2016: PlayStation Press Conference

Sony’s 2015 press conference has become near legendary at this point. With the return of The Last Guardian and reveals of Final Fantasy VII Remake, Shenmue 3, and Horizon Zero Dawn, this year’s PlayStation would certainly be held to an impossibly high standard. While the game announcements may not have quite matched last year’s, the 2016 PlayStation press conference adopted a more streamlined format, added a live orchestra conducted by Bear … Continue reading E3 2016: PlayStation Press Conference
