Gamer Culture

Hands-On E3 2016 Games: A Pirate's Life Be For Cinelinx

During the same day as my descent into VR Madness, I also played a few other games featured on the floor.  Two of which would become Nominees for Best of E3!  In fact, VR titles wouldn't be my only appointments of the day.  Instead, I had dates with the Playstation Motor Speedway of GT Sport, Indie company U&I Entertainment, Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom, and the treacherous waters in Sea of Thieves!

The 5 Biggest Surprises Of E3 2016

Every E3 is filled with surprises of all sorts. Sometimes a game shows up that you didn’t expect.

E3 Brought Us The Spider-Man Game We've Been Waiting For

I Wanted Star Wars Battlefront, But Not This Much Battlefront
