Escape Room: A Real-World Game That Traps You In A Maddening Puzzle Room

You only need to glance at the announcements from last week’s E3 gaming mega-conference to realise that game studios are constantly engaged the pursuit of absolute realism in their titles. But to this day with all the next-gen consoles on Earth, not a single game beats real-life. That’s why physical games like IRL Shooter, Zero Latency and the now failed Z Day are taking off. A new real-world game centred around testing a player’s psychology has landed. It’s called Escape Room, and it’s designed to drive you mad.


Watch The Best Game Trailers From E3 This Year

E3 2014 had some huge moments for any avid gamer. There was a pervasive ‘sequel’ theme in the biggest announcements — existing franchises getting a reboot, or a next-gen upgrade, or some new story — but some experimental titles also caught our attention. The next year in gaming looks to be pretty action-packed.


I Watched Sony's E3 Experience From A Movie Theatre In Alabama

Last night, Sony simulcast its E3 press conference to dozens of movie theatres across the United States, including the Regal Trussville Stadium 16, a Big Lots-facing megaplex just off of County Highway 10. That’s where I watched it, along with a few dozen PlayStation faithful. Disclaimer: I am not a gamer.

Sony Project Morpheus Hands-On: The Virtual Future Is Very Bright

When Sony announced its intentions to take Oculus Rift head-on, we were excited. The Rift (rightly) gets all of the attention and praise for its VR prowess, but a little competition would be good for the emerging technology. Today at E3 in Los Angeles we finally got to try Project Morpheus for ourselves, and it’s pretty awesome.


The New Star Wars Battlefront Game Looks Incredible

Even while you can only see a few glimpses of the in-game engine of Star Wars Battlefront, the new game by Swedish studio DICE seems impossibly good. They say they are making the game that, as Star Wars fans, they always wanted to play. I think they may succeed.

Will The Xbox One's Cloud Computing Work In Australia?

Microsoft has been making some big promises regarding the Xbox One’s potential for cloud computing and today, at E3, we were shown a demo showing its potential to dramatically increase the amount of calculations the console can make per second. The idea, of course, is that this will be applicable to video games.


The Good News About Xbox One That Microsoft Brushed Right Over

E3 is over, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. An internal, seemingly official Microsoft PR document about the Xbox One just leaked out, but it’s not full of horrible secrets, or general shadiness. Nope, it’s actually full of good news that Microsoft just didn’t bother to stress.
