E3 2018 – Nintendo Press Conference

When Nintendo stopped doing the live conferences, I was worried they would lose a lot of the charm. Those first few years I was happy to see they didn’t. Sure we didn’t have the silliness of 2008’s Wii Music presentation, but we did get the hand puppet skits of 2015. Like last year, they announced Read More …

E3 2018 – Sony Press Conference

When I think of Sony press conferences I recall orchestras, and props hanging from the ceilings. I think tons of games that hit with some impact, and a pace that keeps you excited throughout. They did not quite deliver on all fronts this time. This year Sony really changed up the format though. First they Read More …

E3 2018 – Ubisoft Press Conference

It’s been a few years since Aisha Taylor was the host of Ubisoft’s E3 conference, but they put on a real stage show. In the last few years the company has also changed their approach to many franchises with continuing support rather than yearly updates. This means a bit less new game announcements, but I Read More …

E3 2018 – Square Enix Conference

My relationship with Square Enix is kind of similar to Bethesda. They’ve put out things I really love, but most of their bigger releases just don’t hit for me. This conference was super short, and next to none of it was new to their stage. Shadow of the Tomb Raider got some gameplay shown here Read More …

E3 2018 – Bethesda Press Conference

Bethesda is always a weird one for me. I have never enjoyed a Bethesda Studios game. I’ve not even managed to push myself past the 3 hour mark of an Elder Scrolls game. However, I’ve had a great time with the many games they’ve released as publishers. The DOOM remake from 2016 was fun as Read More …

E3 2018 – Microsoft Press Conference

In my mind, Microsoft had the most potential for something amazing. It has been a couple of years since Phil Spencer has moved into the leadership of Xbox, and this felt like the year that his moves might start to mean something. The deals they made 2 years ago are the announcements to get hype Read More …

E3 2018 – EA Press Conference

Coming into the EA conference this year, I had some questions on my mind. Not about what would be announced, that was pretty much all leaked a week ago, but about how they would present a view of the future. The fact that they put out a game that got governments looking at how video Read More …

Neil’s 2017 Games of the Year

I had a lot of sleepless nights this year. Well, that isn’t entirely correct. I usually got some sleep, but there were a lot of nights I found myself staying awake worrying about my friends and family in the USA. Often it was the insanity of the politics happening, but there were also the California Read More …

One Year Anniversary

My girlfriend and I shared our first anniversary together standing in line for more than six hours, waiting for a Nintendo Switch. Pangs of anxiety had guided me into making a call to the local GameStop in a last-ditch effort to remedy my lack of a preorder for the latest Nintendo hardware. Normally, I wouldn’t Read More …
