Titanfall 2 reveals its sword-wielding Titan class

I studied the blade!

At tonight's Dorito's Mix event at E3 2016, Titanfall 2 developer Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts debuted the third of six gigantic robots expected to feature in the game when it launches this fall. The Ronin class Titan resembles the Strider from the first Titanfall, with one main, notable difference: a giant sword.

When Respawn first teased Titanfall 2 back in April, it did so with a sword-wielding Titan. Now the mystery of which giant mech will wield a melee weapon has been solved.

Goalkeeper upgrades are among this year's tweaks

I'm happy to report that the goalkeepers are definitely much improved in the new Pro Evolution Soccer.

Playing as Arsenal against a skilled human opponent at an E3 event earlier today, I benefited from at least three occasions when Arsenal's Petr Čech saved my hide against a marauding Fernando Torres.

The Final Fantasy 15 VR Experience doesn't make a great first impression

The Final Fantasy 15 VR Experience doesn't make a great first impression

Final Fantasy 15's appearance at Sony's E3 2016 press conference carried a surprise ending, revealing a "VR Experience" in which players control Prompto, a gun-toting member of protagonist Noctis' posse. At a PlayStation VR demo event, I got to try my hand at the battle seen during that video, which did not leave me feeling terribly optimistic about Final Fantasy 15's potential as a VR success story.

To put a very fine point on it: What you saw in the VR Experience's trailer is exactly what you get. Holding a PlayStation Move controller, I was able to point and shoot Prompto's gun at an encroaching Behemoth while compatriots Noctis, Gladiolus and Ignis attacked with melee weapons. The shooting was not especially satisfying or complex. Each bullet chiseled off a few hundred HP from the Behemoth's enormous reserve, until after about five straight minutes of trigger-mashing, the boss gave up the ghost.

Longest look at the game yet

For the first time since announcing Persona 5 would be released next February, Atlus has shown off extended gameplay footage from the game. It can be seen in the video above.

The footage is in Japanese, as are the dialogue bubbles that pop up on screen, but the footage does give far better insight into the game's mechanics, characters that will be introduced and, of course, demons.

Soccer simulation prioritizes the little things this year

Pro Evolution Soccer, Konami's only surviving console game, is on for the coming year and from E3 2016 released this trailer for PES 2017.

From the looks of it, Konami is prioritizing more sophisticated gameplay in PES' latest edition, which includes things like first touches, jostling and jockeying for the ball, last-minute goalie saves and AI teammates and opponents that are better at anticipating play as it develops.

The Legend of Zelda's producer discusses why the game can't have a female hero

What would Link do? asks Aonuma

Before The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild made its debut at E3 this week, there was a large rumbling online that players would be given the option to play as a female character. The game's producer, Eiji Aonuma, told GameSpot that while they had those conversations as a team about how they could possibly incorporate a female character, they ultimately decided it didn't make sense to do so.

Aonuma expanded by saying that if they were going to make a female character the main in Breath of the Wild, it would make more sense to just have Zelda act as the main character. When asked why Nintendo didn't just do that, Aonuma responded by asking what a certain other popular Legend of Zelda character would do.

Can't stop the rock

Harmonix has continued to fiddle with Rock Band 4 since it released the game last year, but it's got something more significant planned for later this year. This fall, the studio (in conjunction with new co-publisher PDP) will release Rock Band Rivals, a $30 expansion.

The studio is staying mum on any other specifics at the moment, saying only "we’re going to be bringing you brand new features that have never been seen in Rock Band before. These are really big, new modes to the game, and players of all difficulties and play styles will be able to enjoy what we’re cooking up for you."
