Red Dead Redemption II Trailer #2 Released

Rockstar Games released the second trailer for the highly anticipated Red Dead Redemption II. It’s a bit late, but it certainly doesn’t disappoint. Rockstar briefly talked about the story for the game, saying it’s “the story of outlaw Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang as they rob, fight, and steal their way across the vast and rugged heart of America in order to survive.” If Van der Linde s...[Read More]

E3 2017 Impressions: Nintendo Spotlight

Woo-hoo! Just like years past, Nintendo didn’t hold a formal conference at E3. Instead, it aired Nintendo Spotlight, a series of pre-recorded segments that highlight whatever games they have coming down the pipe. Personally, I’m not mad at the break from the norm. The conferences are just overly-choreographed bullshit shows anyway. At least with Nintendo, the bullshit is rehearsed and edited. That...[Read More]

E3 2017 Impressions: Sony Conference

Now with fishing! Another long one. I sure could use a drink… Microsoft had itself one impressive conference the day before. Its Xbox One X was the most anticipated announcement of E3 and they trotted out a very respectable slate of games. The onus was on Sony to respond, and many of us at Digital Crack wanted to know how they would. Their response was…curious. Sony has its own stable of heavy hit...[Read More]

E3 2017: Days Gone

Zombies…yay… I’ve already had my fill of zombie games. During E3 2016, tidbits of Days Gone were shown. It was short on info and heavy on the undead. I dismissed it. Lo and behold, Days Gone makes a more substantial appearance – with actual gameplay – during E3 2017. I’m still bored of zombies – called freakers here – but I’m listening. The gameplay trailer shows some of th...[Read More]

E3 2017: Marvel’s Spider-Man

“Hi. Is this the flight to Newark?” Here we go… Before we go on, just know that I am THAT guy. I’m the Marvel-head who obsesses about all Marvel-related minutiae. If the slightest thing doesn’t line up with the official continuity, I get butt-hurt. Naturally, the MCU drives me bonkers, even though I’ve generally enjoyed the movies thus far. I really don’t do it with malice; it’s a refl...[Read More]

E3 2017: God of War

“Wait here…I will handle this.” God of War made its debut during last year’s E3. Punisher officially squee’d while viewing the trailer last year. At PlayStation Live, I’d like to believe Punisher squee’d some more. This year’s presentation showed more of the spectacle combat the series is known for. The perspective change doesn’t affect Kratos’s brutality one bit. Using his Mjoln...[Read More]

E3 2017: Detroit: Become Human

Now with more emotions! I’m severely torn on this one. On the one hand, Detroit: Become Human looks like a technical and storytelling tour-de-force. On the other hand, it’s developed by Quantic Dream, David Cage’s studio. David Cage is…polarizing. Look, I’m not denying the man’s talent. Fahrenheit, Beyond: Two Souls, and Heavy Rain are all storytelling marvels. When David Cage wants to tell a stor...[Read More]

E3 2017 Impressions: Ubisoft Conference

Vive la France! This was strange territory for me. For the first time in a few years, Aisha Tyler was not going to emcee the Ubisoft conference. I know she’s a polarizing person, but I grew to really appreciate her level of cringe. Without her, I have to depend on Ubisoft to step up. And I don’t like their level of cringe. Aisha, come back to me! Past that, I had little expectations from the ladie...[Read More]

E3 2017 Impressions: Bethesda Conference

Now in VR! After the doctoral theses that was the Microsoft conference (over 6400 words before I had to get the snippers), I was happy to tackle something shorter. Enter Bethesda and their conference. I honestly had very little idea what to expect from them. The day before, amazon.de put up a listing for Wolfenstein ahead of time, so I figured that would be mentioned. I also knew that Fallout VR a...[Read More]

E3 2017: Anthem

It’s Mass Effect starring Tony Stark Ever see something and swear it can’t be true? That’s me with Anthem. I don’t have a legitimate reason to doubt BioWare. When they are on their game. They are almost without peer. Some of my all-time favorite games – Dragon Age: Inquisition, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Baldur’s Gate, to name a few – passed through their hands. Of course, when ...[Read More]

E3 2017: Crackdown 3

FIGHT GANGS WITH OLD SPICE!!! The next game is another true console exclusive, another oft-delayed game announced at E3 2014, and another game I’m itching to play: Sumo Digital’s Crackdown 3. The original game on the Xbox 360 is still a personal favorite. The sequel in the same console was forgettable. Sumo Digital and Crackdown fans hope the third time’s a charm. To that end, the gameplay seems t...[Read More]

E3 2017: Sea of Thieves

The pirate’s life for me! This game is a true console exclusive. This game is also about 715 liters of triple-distilled awesome. Sea of Thieves is a Rare-developed action-adventure co-op pirate game. That’s it. That’s all you need. You should be saving up pennies already for the eventual purchase. What is more awesome than co-op pirate play, I ask you? Fine, I’ll write more about it. Happy? ...[Read More]
