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: Assassin’s Creed Origins

Kill like an Egyptian After a yearlong hiatus, the mainline Assassin’s Creed series gets a new title. Fans of the series are no doubt hoping that Assassin’s Creed Origins eschews the stale gameplay that plagued more recent titles and returns the series to prominence. The game takes players all the way back to ancient Egypt, circa 49 B.C. You play as Bayek and make your way through the ancient land...[Read More]

E3 2017 Impressions: EA Conference

Featuring Star Wars: Battlefront II! Oh, and other stuff… It’s E3 2017, and I’m fake-excited! Last year, I attempted to cover many of the major releases that were shown at E3. By the end of the conference, I was a burned-out husk. For this year’s event, I’ve decided to take a different strategy. I’ll start by highlighting the major conferences, leaving the more in-depth musings for later. Al...[Read More]

Retro Review: Pepsiman (PlayStation)

This calls for a Coke Release Date: March 4, 1999 Developer: KID Corp. Publisher: KID Corp. May has been a brutal month for me. Between personal and health issues, my duties for Digital Crack have suffered. Unfortunately, so has my gaming. My PS4 and Xbox One have lain silent since the first of the month, and I normally have one online almost around the clock. My Raspberry Pi has fared better only...[Read More]

Marvel vs Capcom: Imfinite Gameplay Trailer Leaks

Ultron confirmed as playable in trailer For those who are still hyped up after the Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite Story Trailer released yesterday, some more eye candy has surfaced. A gameplay for the fighting game has leaked. While the video itself is not extremely high-quality, it does give us a glimpse into how the game’s combat and many systems will function. The first thing I notice while w...[Read More]

Call of Duty: WWII Reveal Trailer Released

After a solid month of speculation and leaks, Activision has officially released the trailer for Call of Duty: WWII. This title, which will release on November 3rd, will return the series to its roots. The trailer features much of the same gritty, on-the-ground violence that we saw in movies like Saving Private Ryan and the excellent Band of Brothers series. The trailer was fully cinematic and hea...[Read More]
