Crash Bandicoot 4 Comes To PS5, Xbox Series X|S And Switch March 15

The excellent if a bit sadistic Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is about to get two upgrades and hopefully not too much of a downgrade on March 15, when the game launches for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch. Activision announced the next-gen and friend releases this morning, along with a PC version coming to Blizzard’s Battle.net later this year. Whose ready for Crash Bandicoot running at 4K, 60 frames-per-second? That’s what Activision and developer Toys for Bob are delivering to the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles (upscaled on the Series S, of course), along with…

Report: E3 2021 Being Planned As An All-Digital Event

Last year the Entertainment Software Association cancelled E3, the biggest trade show in gaming, due to covid-19 concerns. According to pitch documents obtained by Video Games Chronicle, this year’s E3 might be as a strictly online affair, with three-days of streaming content running from June 15 to 17. When E3 2020 was cancelled, game publishers, websites, and Geoff Keighley rushed to fill the void with a seemingly endless array of digital events. The pitch documents being distributed to publishers and developers suggest a show featuring lengthy keynotes from game partners, an awards show, and multiple streams from smaller developers and…

The Week In Games: Prepare For Bowser’s Fury

People like Mario games, I’ve heard. So it’s good to see Nintendo releasing another one! Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury releases later this week for Switch. I’m very excited about this port. I never owned a WiiU, so I missed out on this Mario game. It always looked like a lot of fun and I was a big fan of Super Mario 3D Land on 3DS, so a bigger, console spin on that style of 3D Mario sounds good to me. And the new Bowser’s Fury bit seems cool too! Beyond Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury,…

E3 Apologizes After Sexist Tweet Gets Ratioed

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was one of those times when the three gremlins in a trenchcoat controlling the E3 Twitter account tweeted something so insulting and ridiculous that all you can do is screenshot it and wait for it to be deleted.At 11:37 a.m. ET this morning, the E3 Twitter account, which has over two million followers and is presumably controlled by the Entertainment Software Association (ESA), a video game industry lobbying group, tweeted out “Great list of games women gamers are playing—any of your favorites make the cut?” It also…

Fans Make E3-Style Showcase Featuring A Ton Of Games That Aren’t Super Grim

A digital games showcase called the Wholesome Games Direct aired yesterday, dedicated to cute and colorful games. It put the spotlight on over 50 upcoming indie games that run the gamut from train sims to augmented reality adventures. I want to play them all.Produced by brothers Matthew Taylor and James Tillman and graphic designer Jacob Blommestein, the idea behind Wholesome Games Direct was to create something snappy and polished that would elevate the sorts of games that don’t normally get tons of attention at big gaming conventions like E3. “One of the reasons we started Wholesome Games is to change…

EA is moving ahead with its E3-adjacent event this year as a completely digital showcase.

EA is moving ahead with its E3-adjacent event this year as a completely digital showcase. EA Play Live 2020 will take place on June 11 beginning at 7:00 p.m. There’s no schedule for it yet, but EA says the livestream will include world premiers and other news.  To be frank, I don’t remember when was the last time I actually played an EA game. And EA always find a way to kill my interest in their upcoming releases in some way. Case in point, when I was finally excited for an EA release (the port of the Burnout Paradise Remaster…

E3 Host Geoff Keighley Bows Out Of Show, Criticizes Event’s Direction

Rumors of Nintendo’s possible absence from this year’s E3 have proven to be unfounded, but doubts are still swirling around the 2020 edition of gaming’s signature mid-June hype festival in Los Angeles. Earlier today, longtime E3 participant Geoff Keighley announced he wouldn’t be involved with the show this year.“I have made the difficult decision to decline to produce E3 Coliseum,” he announced on Twitter, referring to the series of livestreamed developer interviews he had put together for the last few years. “For the first time in 25 years, I will not be participating in E3.” Keighley had attended every E3…

With PS5 On The Way, Sony Will Skip E3 Again

Sony will skip E3 again this year, a major blow to the annual video game conference in a year that will also see the release of the next PlayStation. Instead, Sony said today, the corporation will attend “hundreds of events” throughout the year to talk about the next-gen PlayStation 5. (It’s safe to say it will also hold its own events.)“We have great respect for the [Entertainment Software Association] as an organization, but we do not feel the vision of E3 2020 is the right venue for what we are focused on this year,” a spokesperson told GamesIndustry.biz.Sony was once…
