The Big E3 Round Up [Strong Language]

It’s happened again, the big corporate circle jerk that is E3, and all consumers can do is hope a bit of errant spunk flies from the circle and pleases them with a bit of salty distraction from the inexorable journey to the grave.
Maybe it’s just that I’ve turned incredibly cynical over the years of exposure to the games industry’s shit but I find it very difficult to be in any way excited for E3 since almost everything shown is either years off, hyped to the balls and could never live up to it or will look considerably more shit that in the carefully choreographed “gameplay trailer”. And even as the first conference started I felt myself thinking “Oh why did I say I’d do this.” A feeling that is never a positive thing, nor one that abated throughout the whole ordeal.
Nevertheless, here I am on the other side of the conferences feeling a mix of relief and mild disappointment that I wasn’t proven wrong in my thoughts. So for what it’s worth, here is my round up of the E3 conferences and my thoughts on the shit that it’s spawned (that may have given the game away…)

E3 2016 – The Plan

Only a couple days until every gamer’s most anticipated week arrives, I am of course talking about E3 week. E3 is where all the big time gaming companies (as well as some third parties) come together and talk about all the upcoming gaming goodness that we can look forward to (as well as a bit of boring business dribble). The purpose of this article is to go through what will be happening on Nintendo’s side, as well as a full schedule for the week, after the break.

The Big E3 Round-Up [Strong Language]

Well thank Christ it’s over. This shouldn’t have been my reaction to the end of the biggest gaming conference on the world, but it was… The bad and mediocre vastly outweighed the good, but what was good, was on the whole a very positive thing for the industry. So in case you missed it here is a round-up of the E3 conference.

EDITOR’S NOTE – Be warned, our new writer does not withhold any punches and can be very… uhh, vocal about it. If you are a sensitive fanboy and dislike the use of some explicit language, turn away now. If you feel you are strong enough, check out Snowy’s brilliant write-up after the break!

RUMOUR – HMV to Phase Out Gaming?

UK entertainment retailer, HMV, have been a bit up and down over the past couple of years. In 2013, the company entered administration which forced the company to close several stores and make several employees redundant. However, they quickly got back on their feet and were even able to reopen some of their closed stores.

More recently however, in early 2014, they ended their trade-in programme for video games, which meant they could no longer purchase used games from customers. Unfortunately, it seems they may start to phase out gaming altogether in the near future.

Find out more details after the break!
