EA has just shown the single-player trailer for the new game Titanfall 2 at the EA Play 2016 press event, and they have turned a lot of heads when they announced that the game will have a single player campaign…and it will be coming to PS4.

A multiplayer technical test for the game is expected to release before launch. You will be able to sign up at Titanfall.com, but the site was not active at the time this article was posted.

Today marks the start of the 2016 Electronic Entertainment Expo, and there will be several major conferences taking place over the next 36 hours. So where do you go and what do you do if you want to check them out?  Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!


EA Press Conference 2016 – 1PM PT/4PM ET. See it on Twitch.

Most pundits are speculating the next Mass Effect game will show at this event.

Bethesda Press Conference – 7PM PT/10 PM ET. See it on Twitch. 


Xbox Press Conference – 9:30PM PT/12:30PM ET. You’ll have a few options to watch this. Event will be broadcast on the Spike TV cable channel and in the console’s Xbox Live Events app. You can also See it on Twitch

Halo Wars 2 and Gears of War 4 are expected to show.

Ubisoft Press Event – 1PM PT/4PM ET. You’ll have a few options to watch this event. You can watch it on Ubisoft’s E3 Website or on Twitch.

Watch Dogs 2, which was announced just a few days ago, is confirmed to show at this event.

Sony PlayStation Press Event – 6 PM PT/9 PM ET.  Sadly, it doesn’t look like they’re doing a theatre showing or releasing an exclusive PS4 app this year, but you should be able to watch the event on the PS4’s Live Events Viewer app. Just make sure to preorder the events in advance through the app. The E3 events are all free.  If you don’t have a PS4, you can watch it on Twitch.

Sony has been pretty hush hush about what might be shown at this event but PlayStation VR is expected to be demoed.

Square Enix is also planning to show Final Fantasy XV during one of these press events, and possibly announce the premiere of the second episode of the traditionally animated series BROTHERHOOD – Final Fantasy XV. While we don’t know for sure which event will premiere it, it is highly likely to be at Sony’s Press Event.

Now you’re probably also wondering what’s going on with Nintendo?  Nintendo won’t be doing a press conference or a prerecorded Nintendo Direct event this year but they promise that they will be previewing the new Zelda and Pokémon games starting on the 14th.  We will cover that more as we get closer to the event.

While most of these events have been broadcast on television in the past, very few of these events are planned to get a television broadcast this year, and that is unbearably disappointing.  I never thought I would say this but I miss G4.

Pokémon Trading Card Game Mega Mewtwo X Unboxing June 12, 2016

One of the aspects of Pokémon we rarely have discussed here on the website is the Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG). This is kind of odd, since the TCG has been a popular game ever since the earliest days of Pokemania back in the late 90s, and we have been meaning to address it for some time now.

But how could we start?  Aside from a lot of encouragement, it was difficult to find advice about a good place to start with the game. There have been a lot of decks, limited edition packages, and expansions over the lifespan of this game and because of that it is difficult to determine where to start.  So we decided to just go with the flow and we picked up a Mega Mewtwo X box and we will be unboxing it along side a Trainer Kit with a Pikachu Libre card.

Continuing with our promised pre-E3 coverage, we have two new Pokémon related videos planned for release today, and here’s the first one.

We’ve been playing Pokken Tournament here for quite a few weeks and we may have a video review of the game coming in the near future. However, while you may know that new copies of the game come with a Shadow Mewtwo Amiibo card that can unlock a Shadow Mewtwo early in the game, you may not know that the game has support for every other Amiibo figure out there.

That’s right, you can unlock random goodies in Pokken Tournament using Amiibo figures. Here’s all you have to do:

Pokken Tournament is out now on the Wii U.
