Before E3, Here’s Everything You Need To Know
If ever there was a week to pay attention to the video game world, this one is it. E3 press conferences get going tomorrow, and the show floor opens on Tuesday. We’ve spent the weeks leading up to the show writing up predictions, wish lists, and details about what we expect to see from the show. Click on the links below to get caught up before things shift into high gear.
Then come back tomorrow as we kick off our official coverage of what promises to be a big E3 year.
Take a look at our comprehensive list of games we hope to see at this year's show.
We consider the possibility of a PS4 price drop, and the likelihood of some strong reliance on third-party support
Will the Xbox One dashboard get an overhaul? And what might we learn about Gears of War?
We expect a doubling down on Amiibos, and some acknowledgment of the early success of Splatoon through the revealing of new content for the game.
Fallout 4 is coming, but what will we learn about the hotly anticipated title? Plus, we consider the likelihood of Dark Souls III.
Making The Grade
The makers of the PS4 need some more first-party properties on display, and The Last Guardian could help to fill the niche.
Halo 5 needs to come out swinging, and Microsoft needs to show off its additional development talent, like what's going at Rare.
It's time for some concrete release dates from the house that Mario built, as well as an acknowledgment of fan desire for new classic Metroid.
We hope Bethesda overhauls dialogue, but holds on to the excellent V.A.T.S. system.
New detail on the universe of the game would be welcome, but can we skip on the motion controls?
An open world (within limits) and new running options at street level are among our top desires.
Is it too much to ask for a clearer story? And let's get everyone caught up from whatever portable entries they may have missed.
Let the franchise exclusively embrace new-gen systems, and introduce a new cast to carry the story forward.
We discuss Metal Gear Solid V, Batman: Arkham Knight, and go into additional detail on our E3 predictions.
We highlight some of the games that we wish were coming to E3, but that publishers have said they have no plans to present.
Keep our schedule bookmarked throughout the week so you don't miss out on any big news, and check back in during each show for live commentary and analysis.
