Of course, no E3 conference is complete without talking about Nintendo, one of the oldest companies still making video games and has some of the most iconic intellectual properties in the industry. Just like last year, Nintendo didn't have a large, lavish, live show with a bunch of scripted gameplay slices and speeches, but instead opted for a small, humble Digital Event showcase to unveil their l... more.

Nintendo made a family-friendly shooter. With online focus. If this was said a few years ago, chances are many would call it a crazy pipe dream. Also as a brand new IP as opposed to repurposing the more marketable Super Mario characters? What a time to be alive. But there's a bit more to Splatoon than its quirky sensibilities let on. On the surface, it is an inky shooter, but it also mixes togeth... more.

Machine Games' take on Wolfenstein was, as far as we're concerned, one of the most underrated shooters of last year. Where most modern shooters were full of nothing but weapon limitations, regenerating health, and linear missions full of explosions and confusion, this series' soft reboot, Wolfenstein: The New Order stuck to its legacy. You could wield any weapon in the game, even dual-wield them, ... more.

Mortal Kombat was the Texas Chainsaw Massacre of fighting games for the longest time. Yes, there were characters and something resembling a mediocre fighting game on screen, but why it got popular and why people flocked to it aside from all the hidden secrets and goodies, was the blood and the gore.
