Tag: E3 2015
With E3 over, there's been some chance for gamers to reflect on this year's event (past the hype) and see what still thrills them. While my excitement has dipped on some games, in others it's as strong as ever, but the most important thing E3 showed us, is that developers are listening to fans in the best ways.
In this brand new episode of the Super Cool Nerd Show, Matt has returned from his trip to E3 and is regaling us with tales of his exploits, BC introduces Movie Talk, and we have a big talk about cosplay and cosplayers. It's a blast, so come inside and check it out now!
While at E3 2015, we got the chance to talk with a number of game developers about their upcoming games, but today we'll start things off with our chat with Steve Szczepkowski, the Executive Audio Director for Deus Ex. He talks with us about the new game, changes made, and how the fans helped drive it.
The gaming industry has grown and expanded in so many ways that you expect there to be issues. One of the biggest issues the industry has faced recently is the female audience and how to include them. Games have included female characters in the most absurd ways you can think of, think old school comics of the 90’s, and a big group of gamers want actual female characters. This caused problems, why is it every time we pick up a game we have to play as a male character? Why can't there be a game where female characters are not almost always, well, sex toys? Thankfully E3 2015 is heading in the right direction and we can see the industry cares.
E3's primary purpose is for developers to showcase their upcoming titles, and get fans excited about them. It's a dedicated hype machine, and despite trying to remain 'professionally detached', there are some games that I've fallen for hook, line, and sinker.
With E3 conferences wrapped up we got all the major announcements from all the major companies in attendance. They put themselves at the center of the game industry for an hour and half (longer if you are EA) and showed us everything they did. So how did they stack up? Who had the best outing that excited us all, and who was more of a let down?
