E3 2017: ARK Survival Evolved

During E3 2017, we had the pleasure of meeting with the team on ARK Survival Evolved. Fresh off the announcement of the exit from Early Access, you could feel the excitement in the Hotel Suite we visited. We were shown some trailers they had just released and we began talking about the game and future of ARK Survival Evolved.

We all figured MOBA’s would come to the mobile platform eventually, right? Well, I’ll admit - I had my doubts as to whether or not any developers would actually be able to pull it off in a way that didn’t have a clunky or complicated control scheme.

The successor to a game that I admit has been on my Steam wishlist for far too long: Strike Vector EX brings a few things to the series that the community had been asking for for a while. First, unlike the original Strike Vector, EX will be on consoles to start out.

Guitar Hero is making a comeback this year with Guitar Hero Live from Developer FreeStyle Games. I find it a bit strange that the same year Rock Band is making a comeback, so is Guitar Hero. Did these companies get together and plan out when Rhythm based music games would make a comeback?

Warner Bros Interactive and Traveller's Tales are teaming up to bring, what they call, the first true Toys to Life game in Lego Dimensions. Once my 6 year old sees this game, he may soon forget about Skylanders and Disney Infinity too. In the demo we were shown, we visited Oz, Scooby Doo, and Aperture Science.

In October of 2009, a new Action RPG was released by Runic Games called Torchlight. It was a fan favorite but lacked a multiplayer component. Instead of just patching in multiplayer, work began on Torchlight II. On September 20, 2012, the Windows version of Torchlight II was finally released.

At Bethesda’s first ever E3 Press Conference, Todd Howard of Bethesda Game Studios took the stage to show off their latest title: Fallout 4. Todd says tonight begins E3 and the best week of entertainment ever.  Games can do things that nothing else can--they can give you the true wonder of discovery and only games can do this.
