Evolve Wins 'Best Of Show' At E3 2014

As voted on by 28 outlets and Kotaku, here are the official Game Critics Awards winners of various E3 2014 awards, a good chunk of which were stolen by Evolve and No Man’s Sky, unsurprisingly.


What Nintendo's E3 Would Have Been Like In Tomodachi Life

Last week in my review, I described Tomodachi Life as “a bizarre, alternate universe where everybody had giant heads and spoke in ghostly robotic warbles”. If that’s not weird enough as it is (and it’s already pretty weird), imagine a veritable chorus of Nintendo developers chirping and prancing about in Mii form to hawk their latest games.

Velocity 2X Makes My Brain Hurt (In A Good Way)

Shigeru Miyamoto Has A Question For All Of You
