E3 2016

E3 2016 was amazing, end of story. Even tho people say that E3 is losing publishers, we still got a heck of show. Sony had an orchestra to give you the experience of a life time. It’s not only waiting for new games to be revealed, but they want you to talk about it. We are not gonna talk about all the games, but the ones that caught our eye.

Praise the old and the new gods in Game of Thrones

We finally got a release date for PlayStation VR! October 13th 2016 PlayStation gamers can buy one. But that’s not all, I got a stroke when I saw Kratos on screen. There will be a God of War 4!!! Even tho he was old and he was tagging a kid along, he was still kicking ass. Where will they go with the story, will that kid be the new God of War? So many questions, so little time.

Days Gone, Detroit – Become Human and Death Stranded were such a surprise during E3. Hideo Kojima is back!! and he wasn’t alone, he had Daryl Dixon… I mean Norman Reefus with him. For the ladies we got to see some Norman booty. We can finally enjoy a new game from sensei Hideo Kojima. Even tho nobody has an idea what this game is about, I bet it’s dark and I hope with a lot of horror. Meanwhile, we can enjoy Days Gone and shoot “zombies” in a postapocalyptic world. I love games like Detroit – Become Human, your actions have consequences in the game.

Resident Evil 7 is going back to basic. Actually being scary! That demo gave me the nightmares. The surrounding, the music, the weirdness, having no map. It is going back to how we all knew Resident Evil.

We love all games

Okay, okay, we’re not only giving Sony props, because Microsoft was there to show off their new Xbox S: which is smaller, gets a bigger Harddrive (up to 2 TB), 4K, IR Blaster and new Xbox One controller.

The most powerful console ever.

Those are powerful words, so I expect it can time travel, clean my house and feed me. Microsoft is taken this very seriously and they claim that they’re removing barriers. This is what developers and the consumer wants.  True 4K gaming, the best frame rates, render 60 Hertz, 8 CPU cores and they want to bring that to the console. These are specs  I’m used to on the PC. I’m very exited to see how this will unfold.

JENS AND PAZ TAKE GAMESCOM 2019

– A survival guide for newbies – Once upon a time, we weren’t nerdy. Really, we actually were the quarterback and the captain of the cheerleading squad. No science club for us but founding and perpetual members of the “smoking behind the school building” club. We did not spend our Saturday evenings painting Warhammer and had plenty of dates to choose for prom. But you know the ways of the Lord (of the rings) are mysterious and so fast forward 15 years and here we are, immersed in the world of video games with little practical knowledge but an enthusiasm as big as Jabba The Hutt´s appetite. Oh, the twists and turns of life… Anyways, this year we decided that who better than us, Jens and Paz, the least experienced..

The Arcade: First Contact. Haaaaave you met Lesley?

It’s a little family what we have going on here at The Arcade. And because we want you to get to know us better, we decided to feature our staff members in a series called “The Arcade: First Contact”. You already know we are no friends of conventionalisms, so we figured out what a better way to start this series than from the very bottom, meaning our last addition to the bunch. Lesley arrived a couple of weeks ago but he’s already turned our worlds upside down. His enthusiasm is contagious and he seems to fear nothing, not even the longest most eventful night shift! He’s also a very smart cookie that realized that being a lover of all things video games,  movies, and pop culture, The Arcade..
