[E3 2014] - Broin' Out with the Bro Force Developers

A lot of our interviews at E3 were informative and engaging. We chatted with developers, producers, artists and more about games they were extremely passionate about being a part of. Then there was the folks from Free Lives. Not only were these folks passionate about the game they were creating, Broforce, they were fun, relaxed, and ready to rock and roll. We went into that trailer tired from E3, we left it ready to battle for America.

We're finally wrapping up all of our E3 2014 coverage. Locke is putting the finishing touches on the last few video interviews, and all the writing previews are officially done.

[E3 2014] - Rainbow Six Siege Video Interview with Andrew Witts

Rainbow Six Siege was a surprise announcement of the show, a reboot of Patriots, Siege was unveiled at E3 2014 but only shown in a 5vs5 multiplayer format. At first we were worried, would the Rainbow Six games we loved turn into some sort of competitive only franchise? Fret not, Locke dug deep in his interview with designer Andrew Witts and got the goods on what we can expect from Rainbow Six Siege when it launches next year.

It's all about the music

[E3 2014] - Hands (and Arms) on with Fantasia: Music Evolved

One of the things I loved most about Fantasia: Music Evolved is that it truly is about the music. From watching trailers and gameplay you may think the concentration is on dancing, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. In fact, I'd argue you don't dance at all. A music game that requires Kinect but isn't a dancing game? It's true. And it's pretty fun too.
