SDCC 2015 – So many panels, so little time

Once again it’s a nerd’s favorite problem: how to fit in all the San Diego Comic-Con panels you want to see and still have time to get cosplay photos, buy decorations for your personal Starbase, and maybe remember to eat something.

The following panels are a teeny percentage of the ones I thought looked cool. (The full schedule is here.) Some of them have time conflicts, so I’ll either have to make a decision, or race from one to the other as fast as Security will let me go. I’ve got my running shoes, someone distract the guards…

E3 2015: Street Fighter V hands on Impressions

Street Fighter V is the latest title in Capcom’s iconic fighting game franchise. As of yet the time in which the game takes place hasn’t been confirmed, but it definitely appears as though it takes place after Street Fighter VI.  Main stays like Ryu and Chun-Li return in this iteration of the game as well as a few other familiar faces from previous Street Fighter titles. At E3 2015, I had the chance to play Street Fighter V for about thirty minutes. Although thirty minutes is a relatively short amount of time to really nail down the mechanics of Street Fighter V, I did walk away from the experience satisfied. Hit the jump for my full hands on impressions of Street Fighter V. Read On

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain trailer may be Kojima’s last

E3 2015 hasn’t even officially begun and yet we’ve been treated with a slew of trailers for upcoming games. One trailer in particular caught my attention…Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was a standout and it might also be the very last time we see a Metal Gear trailer with series creator Hideo Kojima still as lead on this legendary property. Past trailers have always captured the tone of the Metal Gear game being promoted and I can’t help but think that that is in part due to Kojima’s influence. This trailer remains consistent to his vision and does not disappoint. Hit the jump to check out the trailer!

Sony’s E3 2015 Press Conference

Welcome back to Pixelated Geek’s coverage of E3 2015. There’s no question that Sony currently possesses all of the momentum in the console war. The PS4 has outsold and outperformed the XboxONE, and it’s hard to imagine that’s going to change anytime soon. Sony is also riding high off of two consecutive excellently brutal or brutally excellent E3 Press Conferences, and we’re all very excited to see what they have in store this year.
