E3 has just hurtled past us once again and there were new games all over the shop. That long-rumoured Halo collection, new Zelda, Rainbox Six: Siege, Crackout 3, Scalebound, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Bloodborne, Little Big Planet 3 and more were officially unveiled. We also got to see some gameplay demos for the likes of Battlefield: Hardline, Assassin's Creed Unity, The Division, Xenoblade Chronicles X and Mirror's Edge. So much to be excited for, it's just a shame that most of it won't be here until 2015.
We took some time to play some games this week too rather than just write about them until 4:30am. So be sure to check out our reviews for Mario Kart 8, Borderlands 2 Vita, Entwined, Tomodachi Life, WildStar and -deep breath- Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition Ex Plus Alpha.
In our features section you can find multiple staff roundtable articles on how we think Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, EA and Ubisoft performed at E3, along with a few opinion pieces on the show. We've been able to play some of the hottest upcoming releases this week too, mainly the Battlefield: Hardline beta and the alpha test for Destiny - so be sure to check out our videos and articles on those two massive games. Matt brings the Noob back to the world of WildStar and in the wake of E3 also examines the controversial decision by Ubisoft to not include female assassin's in Unity's co-op mode. Other videos on site this week include footage of Entwined, Tango Fiesta, the podcast and an interview for Alien: Isolation. Over the next seven days, we'll have more of the best news, features and reviews for you once again. It's a good thing this Destiny alpha ends tomorrow morning or you may be looking at a considerably slimmer roundup next week!
