E3 2018: Ori and the Will of the Wisps Hands-on Experience

The successor to Ori and the Blind Forest seamlessly follows the 2015 fairy tale platformer, a challenging and highly rousing Xbox One game under an enchanting cover that amazes us right from the start. It is a wonderful painting of orange and red that comes to life on a dozen screens on the stage of the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles at E3 2018. In addition to countless other new Xbox One titles, a level of Ori and the Will of the Wisps was playable after the Xbox E3 2018 Briefing concluded and it only took us a few moments until we are immersed in the earth-colored scenery, overlapped by the filigree and defensive spirit of Ori. Windswept Wastes is the level that the successor... Read more: E3 2018: Ori and the Will of the Wisps Hands-on Experience

E3 2018: Decide the Fate of an Undead World in Dying Light 2

We humans might not always get along, but when it comes to dealing with zombies, we can usually agree on a few things: they’re bad, we’re good, and if you see one, run. The original Dying Light took that to heart, turning gamers loose on a first-person parkour playground infested with vicious shambling corpses. But running from zombies only gets you so far. For the sequel, developer Techland is infusing their world with a heaping helping of brains, giving players a substantially larger world, more opportunities for acrobatics, and the ability to shape the very narrative itself.  During a hands-off demo at E3 2018, Techland walked (and ran, and jumped) us through the game’s new...

E3 2018: Saving the Universe in the Wildly Ambitious Beyond Good & Evil 2 

Rumored for years but finally confirmed at E3 2017, Ubisoft’s space pirate opera Beyond Good & Evil 2 has long been atop gamer wish lists. And for good reason: the 2003 original was an instant cult classic, earning several Game of the Year awards on the strength of its incredible storytelling and memorable characters. Players patiently waited for news of its follow-up – Beyond Good & Evil was initially planned as a trilogy – but for well over a decade, a sequel existed only in the minds of passionate fans. Based on a guided demo at E3 2018, however, we can confirm that Beyond Good & Evil 2 is not only real, it’s one of the most ambitious video games ever conceived....

E3 2018: High-Flying Anthem Aims to Thrill

Bioware may be best known for thoughtful role-playing greats like Mass Effect, Dragon Age, and Baldur’s Gate, but for their next trick, the legendary developer is building something with considerably more punch. We’re of course talking about Anthem. EA’s shared-world shooter made quite a splash at E3, initially in a lengthy look during the EA Play press conference, but also through a few behind-closed-doors hands-on demos. We were lucky enough to sneak into one such presentation and came away extremely impressed with the game’s tight controls, beautiful world, and explosive action. Anthem’s sci-fi world was abandoned by the god-like Shapers, who apparently left their... Read more: E3 2018: High-Flying Anthem Aims to Thrill
