Smuggling The E3 Trophy Home: Elite – Dangerous

There was a time when I'd look forward to E3 for weeks in advance. It's not that the event was better in ye olde days, it's that it held the possibility of surprises from beginning to end. We know so much now, with daft sites like Rock, Paper, Scattergun reporting on every fart and sigh that emerges from yesterday's indie sensations. Where's the mystery? If…

Colossal Command: Dreadnought

Yager quietly took the reigns of the Dead Island series, debuting the trailer for number two earlier today (ignore Riptide), and they've also started to make some noise about the other game they've been working on since Spec Ops: The Line. Dreadnought is a game about bloody great battleships of the skies. As the freelance commander of an armada, you'll be able to customise your…

When Androids Attack: Alien – Isolation

Edit: Oculus Rift support confirmed for maximum trouser-spoiling. Cat's out of the bag (sorry Jones) - there are synthetic and human enemies in Alien: Isolation! We knew but we hadn't seen them until now. That Sega and Creative Assembly would finally show this to be the case was one of Alice's hopes/predictions for E3 so she's currently gloating in the chatroom. It'll all come to…

(Exposed) Muscle Beach: Dead Island 2

In comparison to the original Dead Island trailer, Dead Island 2's announcement video is more honest than Abe and Cherry Tree Washington combined. You remember that trailer, right? The one that broke a thousand hearts when it debuted and then broke them again when the game was more like a first-person Dead Rising than a mourning simulator? Dead Island 2 is just holding its hands…

Sugar And Vice: Hotline Miami 2

GO BIG OR GO HOME. That's the E3 motto that I just made up but I imagine it's fairly close to the instructions that studios receive from their lords and masters. A trailer is delivered and returned. "Make it louder. Make it faster. Add hyperbole. Add buzzwords. Make it bigger or go home. Also, please note that your home has been reposessed until such time…

Hidden Himalayas: Far Cry 4

Know what Far Cry needs? A villain so kerrazy that he takes a selfie right after he murders a bunch of people. Thankfully, that's precisely what the series now has in the shape of the mad despot who takes center stage on the box art and rants and raves his way through the debut trailer above. GTA V was the game to popularise the act…

A Little More Faith: Mirror’s Edge 2 E3 Trailer

Mirror's Edge 2 was revealed at last year's E3 with little more than a brief animation and a few bars of the game's lovely soundtrack. As part of EA's conference at E3 2014, they showed off more of the game. It was set amidst some buzzword-y waffle from the game's developers, and is still only concept footage for the game they hope to make, but…

Keeping Up With The Jones: Rise Of The Tomb Raider

The sequel to Tomb Raider: The Reboot has a title and a trailer. The title really is Rise Of The Tomb Raider, which I suppose is better than Raid Of The Tomb Riser, or High Rise Raider, in which Croft and some other posh sorts wage violent class warfare in a south London estate. In the actual sequel, Lara has been left so emotionally damaged…

Ten Points For Gryphon Gore: The Witcher 3

There are four main types of games likely to show up in the big E3 presentations. They are Men With Guns games, Men With Swords games, Men In Cars games and Men In Shorts games, and I seem to have drawn the longsword. Having just peeped at Dragon Age, I've now plucked The Witcher 3 out of the Enormous Hat O' Videos. It's a ridiculously…

EA Runs Out Of Plugs, Leaks BF Hardline E3 Trailer Itself

You think you know lines? You think you know their relative structural integrity? Newflash: YOU DON'T KNOW SHIT ABOUT LINES. Battlefield Hardline? That's where it's at. Hardest lines in the biz. The business of lines, to be clear. Also it's about police and robbers, and now - finally, after roughly 167 leaks - EA's seen fit to release an official trailer. It's got a release…

Ex-Xbone-Exclusive: Dead Rising 3 On PC This Summer

Delightful pre-E3 news has just arrived from the Microsoft bunker. The Kinect will be attached to all future versions of Windows 8, which will in turn be attached to every PC in the world through the magic of Cloud-based infiltration. Empty your recycle bin by performing complex semaphore! Attempt to discover the start button by cartwheeling around your front room, or scratching your head and…

DayM: Rocket’s Next Game To Be About Mountaineering

DayZ creator Dean "Rocket" Hall recently climbed a very big mountain. Many game developers take time off by going on lavish-ish tropical vacations or catching up on two-year game/movie/strained family relationships backlogs, but Rocket - true to his nickname - ascended Mount Everest. (OK, maybe not many real rockets specifically shoot for mountains, but you get the idea. IGNORE MY FLIMSY METAPHOR.) It turns out,…
