06/05/2012, [E3 2012] OnLive is demonstrating its updated in-browser gaming and OnLive MultiView features. Onlive has made it easier for partners and third parties to integrate its technology to their websites to allow gamers to play a game from the browser. This makes it easier for users to test a game demo, without having to download and install any software, not even OnLive’s client. You can imagine many ways to operate […]
06/04/2012, All right, for the benefit of those of us who did not manage to catch all the action at today’s E3 press conferences, we have highlight some announcements made over at E3 that might just pique your interest. After all, there is nothing quite like a summarized, bulleted list to get things going, instead of sifting through mountains of stories, right? On the Xbox 360 front, we have Microsoft parading […]
06/04/2012, Check it out – a spanking new intellectual property (IP) from the developers (Quantic Dream) of Heavy Rain for the Sony PS3, where it is known as Beyond: Two Souls. I guess at least this puts an end to all the sequels and prequels of gaming titles out there, although there is always a sense of loyalty and continuity for the gamer to reproduce whenever a new title in the […]
06/04/2012, The Sony PlayStation Press Conference at E3 will start soon, and we’re going there right now.

06/03/2012, Nintendo President and CEO Satoru Iwata let loose some cats out of the bag in a pre-E3 video address concerning their new home console that will be known as the Wii U. First announced at E3 in 2011, the Wii U will continue from where the Wii left off, where its predecessor has already shipped over 95 million units worldwide, so the time is ripe for an updated model, or […]
06/11/2011, E3 2011 was very exciting, and there were a lot of very good demos and announcements. However, it is fair to say that for a lot of people, including myself, Nintendo was the most innovative hardware company this year. Its upcoming Nintendo Wii U and the new controller have made headlines, but after coming back from E3, I found that a number of people were confused about some details, so […]
06/08/2011, One of the biggest trends we see at E3 is that publishers are not afraid to remaster old video games (in some cases, as recent as old as only two years) with high definition graphics, new gameplay and added content. That’s fine and all, as HD is something everybody wants (even Nintendo now realizes it needs to jump aboard the HD train), but can companies legitimately call a game HD […]
06/08/2011, I had the opportunity to get my hands on the preview of Kinect Star Wars at E3 2011… ever since it was demonstrated last year, I was wondering how Jedi action would feel like on Kinect, and now, I have a partial answer. I say “partial” because the game is still a work in progress. So what does it feels like? Mostly, Star Wars is very fun to try. At […]
06/07/2011, The Wii U might have been announced at Nintendo’s E3 press conference this morning and the Wii U touchscreen controller might have been the focus of everybody’s attention, but do you want to know a little more about what’s powering the Wii U console itself?

06/07/2011, Shocking nobody who’s paid any attention to all the rumors over the last couple of weeks, Nintendo unveiled the Wii U and its controller at its E3 press conference this morning. Boasting a 6.2-inch screen, dual analog circle pads, a mic, two pairs of rear triggers, a stylus and more, the controller wowed Nintendo fans near and far, gamers casual to hardcore and even many Sony and Microsoft diehards. Just […]
06/07/2011, Nintendo Wii U: can its 2012 console and its awesome controller save Nintendo from rising Kinect and PS Move?
06/07/2011, Is nothing a secret anymore? Unveiled at Nintendo’s E3 press conference, the Wii U‘s controller will sport a 6.2-inch touchscreen that will provide “tablet-like” experiences, include a built-in camera, traditional controls and more. It looks like the Nikkei hit it right on the mark didn’t it? According to Nintendo President Satoru Iwata, the Wii U also includes two circle analog circle pads (like on the 3DS), a D-Pad, A/B/X/Y buttons, ZL/ZR, […]
06/07/2011, Kicking off Nintendo’s E3 press conference, Nintendo had an orchestra play memorable Legend of Zelda tunes while Shigeru Miyamoto reenacted Link’s motion. A trailer demoing 25 years worth of Zelda played to to a thunderous crowd. But what is Nintendo doing to celebrate the festivities? It’s releasing a bunch of games, a new gold Wii Remote and two special edition musical soundtracks. Hit the link to find out the full […]
