Battletoads are back, along with those damn hoverbikes

Can I hear a ribbit? The first full trailer for the Battletoads revival premiered at today's Microsoft E3 conference, showing off Rash, Zitz, and Pimple beating on bad guys, solving puzzles, and dodging obstacles in a 3D hoverbike stage. Yes, prepare to experience that fresh hell all over again.

Blair Witch Project is getting its own first-person horror game

Even if the Blair Witch Project became its own worst enemy with its silly sequels, I still really love the original movie. So it's a big surprise to see it turned into a first-person horror game which was just revealed at the Microsoft E3 2019 press conference. Called simply Blair Witch, the trailer didn't show much other than hinting that you're looking for a missing person in the woods and you have a dog that's your sidekick. If you've seen any of the movies, you can fill in the rest of the details from there. I particularly like the homage to the first film, wherein the main character dies just before seeing someone having a creepy time-out in the corner.

The two most important changes are, firstly, that it adds a new Legion Challenge League in which you'll visit battlefields frozen in time, smash enemies to wake them up and collect a mountain of loot. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, it includes the action-RPG's long-awaited melee overhaul, which should make whacking enemies in the face a lot more satisfying.
