Well, Psyonix figured out how to do it, and in turn created one of the most wildly popular and entertaining party game to come out in recent years. And now it’s coming to Nintendo Switch.

Super Mario Odyssey was the star of Nintendo’s E3 Spotlight. The presentation displayed Mario playing his way through multiple levels, using his Ghost-possessed hat to control enemies, items, and strangely enough, a T-Rex.

Allow me to reacquaint you.
We only got about 2 minutes of Destiny 2, but it was enough to show off their certifiably bad-ass villain. He looks like a Cabal leader, classic warmonger, and will serve as a great antagonist for the story they are trying to tell. Continue reading Destiny 2 shows off villain at Sony’s E3

The rumors surrounding Monster Hunter were confirmed at Sony’s E3 2017 press conference, which does not bode well for Capcom. Monster Hunter World is a console entry of the popular Japanese portable franchise, and it has been simplified in order to appeal to Western gamers.
