E3 Rumors and Predicitons: Nintendo

The Electronic Entertainment Expo, E3, is now a week away and rumors about new IPs, release dates, and new services have been running rampant.

To the surprise of nobody, Nintendo has been getting there family-friendly backsides handed to them in the console market. And although I, like many other gamers out there, love Nintendo, it seems as though the future might be grim for Nintendo. Of course, Nintendo is still sitting on mounds upon mounds of that Wii money, the WiiU continues to under perform compared to the Xbox One and PS4. However, with the success of Mario Kart 8 Nintendo just might be on the long awaited upward swing  we’ve all been hoping for since the launch of the WiiU. During E3, I think they have a real chance to leave us all in awe.

E3 Rumors and Predictions: Microsoft

The Electronic Entertainment Expo, E3, is now a week away and rumors about new IPs, release dates, and new services have been running rampant.

In a recent turn of events, Microsoft has started making a massive push to even the playing field with Sony. They’re striking the price of the Xbox One to $400 by getting rid of the Kinect effective June 9th. And although that is the business equivalent of giving the middle finger to developers working on Kinect-centric titles, this move will actually make Xbox One a more viable console. Simply put, the vast majority of gamers do not want a console for TV features, they want it for gaming. And up until now, the PS4 has been winning the console war because it is a video game console first. But, that aside, Halo 5 has also been announced. So that begs the question, what are we going to see at E3 this year? I have some thoughts, come and humor me for a minute.

Vroom Vroom!! Here comes the Batmobile!

There are a handful of things that the world can agree and purely awesome.  The cheer of a crowd, a kitten’s purr, and now the roar of Batman’s new Batmobile.  Yesterday Rocksteady released a new video for the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight and the Dark Knight’s newest toy, his trusty Batmobile.  The video is short and informative, but oh what a tease for next week’s E3 where Rocksteady promises more.

Mortal Kombat X, Who’s Next? Trailer

12 years ago, Ed Boon and John Tobias changed the fighting game world forever using realistic character models, next level violence, and the fan favorite aspect BLOOD!  Since Midway Games debuted Mortal Kombat in arcades everywhere, it has been a staple among Street FighterFatal Fury, and later fellow alum like Soul Calibur and Tekken.

Over the years MK has done well to stay one of the industry’s fan-favorites with few follies (*cough*MortalKombatMythologiesSubZero*cough*). And now with just a week away from E3, Warner Bros. has released a very simple trailer for their next edition, Mortal Kombat X… and they ain’t goin’ into space.Mortal Kombat X 2

Vintage E.T. Game Cartridges Found In New Mexico Landfill

For a long time there was a urban legend swirling around the gaming community. This urban legend related to a game long forgotten by most, for the Atari 2600. Somewhere, it seemed, there was a stockpile of thousands of copies of one of the worst games ever made buried underground.

The game? E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, based on the Steven Spielberg film of the same name.

It seems the urban legend was based in fact. A Microsoft-backed documentary team has discovered a number of copies of the game buried in a landfill in Alamogordo, New Mexico. Just how many copies – certainly not thousands – is still unclear.
