E3 2014 is almost here!

Posted on 10 years ago by (@NE_Brian) in News | 11 Comments

Can you believe that we’re less than a day away from the (unofficial) start of E3? There will be plenty of media briefings to tune into, trailers to watch, and gameplay to check out.

Things will probably be a bit quiet tomorrow as Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, and Sony will be taking the stage. Nintendo has the day to itself on Tuesday, with lots of live-streaming coverage to follow throughout the week. And I’ll be here to cover it all for you lovely folks!

Here are the important dates/times you should be aware of:


Nintendo Digital Event – 12 PM ET / 9 AM PT
Live from Nintendo Treehouse – 2:35 PM ET / 11:35 AM PT – 7 PM ET / 4 PM PT
Super Smash Bros. Invitational – 7 PM ET / 4 PM PT
Super Smash Bros. Q&A / presentation – 10 PM ET / 7 PM PT – 11:30 PM ET / 8:30 PM PT


Live from Nintendo Treehouse – 12:15 PM ET / 9:15 AM PT – 9 PM ET / 6 PM PT
Mystery 3DS game Q&A/presentation – 9 PM ET / 6 PM PT – 10:30 PM ET / 7:30 PM PT


Live from Nintendo Treehouse – 12:30 PM ET / 9:30 AM PT – 8 PM ET / 5 PM PT

This all brings us to a few important questions: what do you guys hope to see? Are there any particular announcements you’d like to see Nintendo (or a third-party) announce? Are you looking forward to anything in particular? Sound off in the comments section below!


Just how long will Nintendo’s Digital Event on Tuesday be? Japanese website NicoNico provides an estimate of sorts, listing a half hour time slot.

As we tend to say in these sorts of situations, that’s not an official confirmation. I’d also guess that it’ll run slightly over a half hour if NicoNico is accurate. I could see it being something like 35 minutes long. We’ll see.



SEGA’s E3 2014 lineup

Posted on 10 years ago by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News, Wii U | 16 Comments


SEGA has published its lineup for E3 2014.

Next week, attendees can expect to go hands on with Alien: Isolation, Sonic Boom, and Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd.

For overviews of each title, head past the break.

Alien: Isolation
Discover the true meaning of fear in Alien: Isolation™, a survival horror set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger. Back to the core essence of Ridley Scott’s haunted house in space – you play as Amanda Ripley, daughter of Ellen Ripley, under-powered and under-prepared, fighting overwhelming odds simply to survive. With the station in lockdown and a vicious creature on the loose, getting around requires cunning tactics and stealth… and a great deal of courage. The Alien is here, in the shadows, in the vents and the walkways and the slightest noise will bring unwanted attention your way, and fast. With a small band of looters scavenging for supplies, that noise may be hard to avoid. SEGA and Creative Assembly will also be presenting an exciting new game mode, playable for the first time on the show floor. (Developed by Creative Assembly, out Oct 7, 2014, on Windows PC, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®3, XboxOne and Xbox360).

Sonic Boom
SEGA will unleash an all-new Sonic the Hedgehog at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles with the debut of playable versions of two new titles exclusively for Wii U™ and Nintendo 3DS™. The new games Sonic Boom™: Rise of Lyric for the Wii U system, developed by Los Angeles-based Big Red Button, and Sonic Boom™: Shattered Crystal for the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system, from San Francisco-based Sanzaru Games, will introduce new gameplay and the most vile and formidable villain in Sonic history — Lyric.

In both games, Sonic and friends – Tails, Knuckles, Amy, and the newest member of the team, Sticks, will work together as they face their most powerful enemy yet. Lyric is a giant and monstrous snake-like creature from an ancient race. An extremely tech-savvy mastermind who uses a sophisticated robotic body of armor to carry out his own nefarious deeds, he is a formidable enemy and a force to be reckoned with. With a strong emphasis on collaboration, the roles of Tails, Knuckles, Amy, and Sticks, will be elevated in gameplay that capitalizes on each character’s unique talents and abilities. The goal is to prevent Lyric from powering his army of robots and carrying out his plan to destroy the world. The stakes have never been higher, and the only chance to overcome Lyric is to band together and work as a team. (Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, Developed by Big Red Button for Wii U. Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal, Developed by Sanzaru for 3DS).

Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd
Also represented on SEGA’s 2014 booth is the world’s most popular virtual singer Hatsune Miku, produced by Crypton Future Media,INC., returning in an all-new rhythm video game. Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA™ F 2ndfeatures twenty classic songs from the previously Japan-only PSP games making their first debut in the West and twenty brand new songs to the Project DVIA series. In addition to the new songs, the game will feature updated gameplay mechanics and controls, over 80 brand new and remade fan favorite modules, Cross-Save compatibility, Markerless AR Mode and a revamped edit mode ranking system that showcases the most popular user generated content to provide gamers the best music game experience on the PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®Vita systems. (Developed by SEGA Japan, out fall 2014 on PlayStation®3, PlayStation®Vita and PlayStation®Network).
