Summer is winding down but the gaming hasn’t slowed a bit. We squeezed the last bits of summer gaming as we checked out another batch of PC and console titles over the past month. We visited a cyberpunk future, redressed tackey clothing, fought as a blind warrior prince, protected our squadmates in WW2, and more! Our reviews are below for our August edition of the Gamebox.
After a year off, E3 came back to showcase the next generation of games, hardware, and creators to check out. With over 30 companies and special presentations, it was 20+ hours of content for gamers to stream. With big game devs waiting all year to unleash huge announcements, it was an exciting event to guess would be revealed. However, not every game presentation sparked huge excitement. We rounded up the best announcements and trailers we think were great. And maybe one or two that are just plain goofy to watch again.
Midway’s highly successful reboot of Spy Hunter back in 2001 was no stranger to that era’s obsession with nu-metal, recruiting Saliva to perform a new version of the Peter Gunn theme along with including the band’s video for “Your Disease” on the game’s disc as a bonus feature.
The biggest dog at the conference since Sony declined to attend E3 this year, Microsoft took the opportunity to reveal details about their next console along with new trailers for games like Halo: Infinite, Gears 5, Battletoads, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Cyberpunk 2077 (with Keanu!!?!) and more.
