The PlayStation Vita is, without a doubt, my favorite handheld device. I also love my 3DS, but my library of games on the Vita is over 160 and still growing.

Ok, let me first preface this by saying that I did not win a shirt playing Super Smash Bros. Wii U. I really, really wanted that shirt…
Ahem. So, The line surrounding the dozen or so kiosks running Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS at the Nintendo booth this year was insane. I didn’t actually think I’d get a chance to play, as crowds of people were waiting their turn at the latest entry to Nintendos very successful, and adored mascot brawler. How did it fare to its predecessors? Read on to find out. Continue reading
Bungie is a developer that really needs no introduction. Thanks to their fantastic work on the Halo series, they have earned a spot on any list of premiere first person shooter developers. After leaving Microsoft, Bungie struck out on their own, and have finally taken the wraps off of their latest work, Destiny, an Action/FPS/RPG. I was given the chance to play 2 matches of one of Destiny’s 12 player modes, Zones on the PlayStation 4.
I’m actually not a big fan of racing games, but I love looking at the shiny cars. I was given the opportunity to check out Evolution Studios upcoming social racer, Driveclub, in two different ways; through Sony’s nifty microconsole, the PlayStation TV, and then again using a steering wheel peripheral at the booth. Below are my thoughts on both PS TV, and Driveclub.
Bloodborne was the last game I saw at E3 today, and boy, what a game to go out on! It’s not big on flash, set-pieces, or fancy combo systems, but what I saw demoed for me catapulted the game to my game of the show, ahead of The Witcher 3, and The Order 1886. Bloodborne is a third person action/horror/rpg developed by From Software, produced by Sony Japan Studios, and is being published by SCE exclusively for the PlayStation 4. Read on for my thoughts.
The Order 1886 wasn’t the first game I got my hands on at E3 this year, but it was definitely one of the titles I was anticipating checking out for myself the most. For those unfamiliar with the title, The Order 1886 is a third person shooter set in an alternate history London in which an ancient order of knights must protect the world from supernatural threats. The game is being developed by Ready at Dawn, exclusively for the PlayStation 4. So, how did it hold up? Read on below to find out.
I just got back from my first day at E3, and I had a great time! I saw a lot, played a lot, and wore down the soles on my shoes! I can’t say that this is a comprehensive E3 2014 report, as I focused on the stuff that interests me. Below is Part 1 of my summary of the stuff I saw. I’ll be uploading my photo gallery as well a little later. So, read on to find out what I thought of E3 2014!
