E3 2017 Round Up Part 6 – Sony

As the more successful platform holder this generation, Sony probably has it a little easier than Microsoft this year as they don’t have to navigate through announcements tied to justifying new platform. But then they did make a bit of a mess of that later on last year […]

E3 2017 Round Up Part 5 – Ubisoft

So next up at E3 2017 was the Ubisoft Conference. I thought it was a strange way to start the conference by announcing a Nintendo Switch title, Mario and Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. Granted, I don’t think I’ve ever owned a Nintendo console but I do respect the passion Ubisoft […]

E3 2017 Round Up Part 4 – PC

With E3 rapidly approaching I thought I’d throw out a few thoughts in relation to what might come soon from Frontier Developments for our favourite space-em-up Elite Dangerous. This is all just me either guessing or wishing (I’m just a fan) so odds aren’t great of anything being […]
