The Microsoft E3 press conference had a lot to prove. Following Bethesda but kicking off the main day of press conferences, they were stuck between a rock and hard place, yet also had a some massive open goals to score. As expected, they went in hard with 90 minutes of games, footage, killer features and reveals.
In short, they smashed it.
The three of us have picked over the event to present you with three different opinions about where Microsoft succeeded and failed in regards to the Xbox One, Windows 10 and the all-important games.
Wow. Without a shadow of a doubt, that was the most impressive press conference that Microsoft has thrown in years. It packed a huge amount of games, reveals and massive features into a breathtaking ninety minutes.Click here to read more...
So, that just happened. Bethesda just wrapped things up at their first ever E3 showcase and frankly, we're stunned. Fallout 4 is coming THIS YEAR on November 10th. The lengthy collection of demos went into detail on new elements for the series and Carl and myself have quite simply been rocked and are fully wired despite it ending well after 4am UK time. There was also a strong showing from the likes of Doom and Battlecry. Oh, and Dishonored II was announced. Fallout 4 was that impressive, that new Dishonored II is a footnote in this paragraph. Be sure to come back over the next few days as we're covering all of the pressers and will be bringing you the latest news, trailers, features and opinions on all the hottest games at E3 2015. For now, take a look at our roundtable impressions piece.
Now I know we have all joked about Bethesda – or more specifically Fallout – winning E3, but if I’m honest here I really do think they’ve set the bar so high that it will be difficult for anyone else to come close.Click here to read more...

Ahh.. the eighties, a time of awesome toys, shell suits, bad hair and the best films ever. We made mix tapes, we skated on multi-coloured roller boots, we wore He-Man or Get-Along-Gang t-shirts, we stuck spokey-dokies on our bikes and watched Going Live!.. Life was good.Click here to read more...
