[E3 2016] Party Up In The Final Frontier In Star Trek: Bridge Crew

about X hours ago from

Despite an accidental leak on Reddit a few days prior to E3, Star Trek: Bridge Crew was one of the highlights of the Ubisoft conference. When LaVar Burton gets incredibly excited about something you know it's got some value, and watching the Trek alums wax praise about the game was fun in itself. Co-op fans might finally have the VR experience we've all been waiting for. You might be tempted to write this one off as another one of those barley interactive "VR Experiences." Well, not to worry! "At first, people might think you're just pushing buttons and that's lame," David Votypka, the senior creative director down at Red Storm said in an interview earlier this week. "However, it's what the buttons do that makes it cool. You're on a Federation starship firing torpedoes, raising shields and turning on the red alert. That's an awesome sensation, especially when you're playing in VR with friends."

TMNT Mutants in Manhattan Co-Op Review

I have been a fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for decades now, long enough to have read the comics before the iconic 80s cartoon. The franchise has had a long and generally successful history, and video game tie ins are a big part of that. Turtles in Time is in my top five arcade games of all time, and between me and my two boys, we’ve watched countless Turtle cartoons and mashed lots of buttons in Turtle games. When I heard about a new game from the creators of Transformers Devastation, which I enjoyed, I was very excited to play it.

When it was first revealed and demo'd last year, For Honor sounded like it would be a multiplayer Knights vs Samurai affair with a combat system that had some rochambeau elements.

You can check out the gameplay footage over here, which shows off the combat system in a little more depth. The actual campaign itself will take you on a quest to defeat the warlord Apollyon and save your people.For Honor will launch next year on February 14 for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Between the interesting opening dance number and the "behind-the-scenes"-ish video for the Assassin's Creed movie, there was some gameplay footage of Watch Dogs 2. During the course of that, there was a very quick mention of the game having co-op so we've done a little digging to find out more.There aren't too many details around the actual co-op aspects yet, though GameSpot had a chance to check out the game a week ago and got a little more info. Specifically, four player co-op will be supported throughout the entire campaign. What's more, you will encounter players just wandering around San Francisco and can invite them into your game, similar to The Division. The little mention of the game's co-op from yesterday's footage starts around the 2:25 mark in the video below.Watch Dogs 2 will be out on November 15, 2016 for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

about X hours ago from

No Microsoft E3 conference would be complete without mention of the world-building juggernaut that is Minecraft. Last year they showed what could be possible with the HoloLens (whenever that materializes) and this year they're focusing more on the gaming together side of things. The new "Friendly Update" will allow PC (Windows 10 edition), mobile device, and VR players to all join and play in the same Realm."Realms" are a new addition to the world of Minecraft and they are basically hosted worlds within Microsoft's cloud. From the menu, you can setup a new Realm by selecting the appropriate choice when creating a new world. You can specify how many users are allowed to join (either 2 or 10) and how long the Realm will be available (30 or 180 days). Once it's created, you can invite friends from the Windows 10 version, any supported mobile device, or even those that are lost in the madness that is virtual reality.
