A lot of fans of Final Fantasy XV may have caught glimpses of the game at Sony and Microsoft’s E3 Press Events, but that was in fact only a small portion of what was actually shown at E3 2016. In fact, the game was denied over the course of two days at Square Enix’s E3 booth, and here’s some of the footage of those stage shows.

Let’s start off with the Final Fantasy XV stage presentation from the first day of E3. You might want to jump to 27 minutes to get right into the show.

Next up, here’s the presentation of the game from Day 2, where they showed off some never before seen content including Wait Mode.

If you want a closer look at this content, that isn’t an issue. Here’s a look at Wait Mode.

And here’s a closer look at a new flying ship that you can unlock.

Final Fantasy XV is coming September 30th, 2016 to PS4 and Xbox One.

Massive Video Preview of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wilderness June 16, 2016

On the first day of E3 2016, Nintendo announced the title for the latest game in The Legend of Zelda franchise, The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wilderness.

Nearly all of the entire first day of E3 was devoted to showing this game. They previewed so much about this game I have absolutely no idea where to start. It’s clear that this game is heavily inspired by the franchise by thrusting players into an open world where they can do absolutely anything, and explore anywhere. You can cook, you can hunt, you can sneak, and you can fight.

To start, here’s the first preview video of the day, a look at the game’s introduction.

Next up is a look at some of the game’s mechanics and the environment.

Here’s a look at the game’s first shrine.

In this game, weapons are actually destructible but they can be picked up off the ground. Here’s a look at the game’s weapons and combat.

Next up is a look at the game’s Amiibo functionality. You might remember that Wolf Link was included with copies of Twilight Princess HD, now you can see what you’ll be able to do with it.

Next up is a preview joined by the creator of Legend of Zelda, Donkey Kong and Super Mario, Shigeru Myamoto where he talks about his memories of developing the original game on the NES and how it compares to this game.

Here is the second shrine adventure.  Don’t adjust your watch.

Hunting and gathering is a big part of the game.  The environment is teeming with life and you need to use this to your advantage on your journey.

Next up is the next shrine, which they call shrine four…  This could be the start of a shirtless Link cosplay trend.

Next up is a journey outside the plateau.

Finally, we have a special look at some extra shrines that were not shown on the show floor.

The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wilderness is coming to Nintendo NX and Wii U in 2017.

During Sony’s E3 2016 Press Event, Capcom premiered the announcement trailer for Resident Evil 7, the newest game in the venerable survival horror franchise. The best part about this announcement was that Capcom had a demo ready for us to download alongside the announcement!

The demo is only out on the PS4 right now and it can only be downloaded by PlayStation Plus subscribers. So for those of you unable to check it out yourselves, here it is with full video commentary!

Resident Evil 7 is coming in 2017

Let’s Play DOOM Single-Player Demo June 16, 2016

E3 2016 is rapidly becoming a memory, but we’ve got tons of E3 content coming to this site over the next few days.

First up is a bit of a return to our roots. When we first started doing Let’s Plays on this website we decided to only cover demos or first portions of the game instead of playing a game all the way through. The reason behind that was we wanted people to pick up the games and didn’t want to ruin the game experience. Demand started coming in to play more and more of a game (which we happily obliged -Ed) but there haven’t been too many demos for us to look at until this week!

What better demo to get back to playing than the demo for the new DOOM game?  It’s only going to be free to download this week on PS4, Xbox One and STEAM and then it will be discontinued. We will be playing the first level of the game with full video commentary.

The first DOOM was one of the most popular demos of its age, let’s see how this one is!

DOOM is out now for PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Detroit: Become Human E3 2016 David Cage Interview June 16, 2016

There is no exclusive coming to the PS4 I’m anticipating more than Detroit. Directed by David Cage, who you may remember for their awesomely unique titles Indigo Prophecy (Fahrenheit), Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, Detroit is a futuristic noir where you control androids nearly indistinguishable from humans.

The game had a great showing when their newest trailer premiered at the Sony E3 2016 Press Event, but that was all we had to go on.  Yesterday, David Cage did an interview with PlayStation and we got to see our first active preview of the game and hear a bit more about the inspiration behind this title.

Detroit: Become Human is coming exclusively to the PS4.
