Anime Expo 2016: Games and Events stars

Anime Expo 2016 takes place next week, from July 1st to July 4th at the Los Angeles Convention Center, once again AX will feature a number of video game, visual novel, and mobile game companies, and more. Here’s a brief summary of just about all the game-related events, panels, booths, and demos available at Anime Expo 2016:

E3 2016 Impression stars

E3’s twenty-second year has once again shattered attendance records, and raised the bar for Los Angeles’ premier trade show for the video game industry presented by the Entertainment Software Association. This year’s show saw a huge increase in attendance, with more than 70,000 people that participated in the week’s events, including 50,300 video game professionals, analysts, journalists, and enthusiasts attended this week’s trade show, and 20,000 fans attended E3 Live.

E3 Impressions: Lawbreakers stars

We managed to get a sneak peak at the new upcoming game, Lawbreakers, with the developers from Boss Key Productions. Lawbreakers is a first person arena shooter game that takes place in a post-post apocalyptic world. The game is currently in alpha and is expected to launch some time in 2016.

E3 2016 Impressions: Gravity Rush 2 stars

Earlier this year, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced Gravity Rush 2. The game picks up right where Gravity Rush left off. Kat will return alongside her friend Raven. At E3, Sony happened to have a playable demo at their booth and I was able to get some hands on time with the game. From what I can say, the game is a massive improvement from playing on the Vita.

E3 2016 Impressions: ReCore stars

When ReCore was first shown at Microsoft’s E3 2015 briefing the game has since been shrouded in mystery but knowing that Legendary Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune and Metroid Prime Alum Mark Pacini, of Armature Studio, were working on this game had me intrigued. My biggest question was what exactly is ReCore?

E3 2016 Impressions: Tales of Berseria stars

We managed to get a sneak peak at the new upcoming game, Tales of Berseria, with the publishers from Bandai Namco. Players assume the role of Velvet, a young women who was once kind but has been overcome with anger and hatred revolving around a traumatic experience three years prior to the events with Tales of Berseria.

E3 2016 Impressions: Tekken 7 stars

We managed to get a sneak peak at the new upcoming game, Tekken 7, with the publishers from Bandai Namco. Tekken 7 is a fighting game and is the latest installment in the Tekken series. The game also marks the 20th anniversary of the Tekken series.

E3 2016: Impressions The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild stars

After watching the E3 2016 demo for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, it’s no surprise that Nintendo’s back-to-basics approach has a great impact to the overall experience. This is a very refreshing move for the series, one that will definitely refine the free-roaming sense of exploration and danger that made the first Zelda so great. At E3, Nintendo had a playable demo at their booth and I was able to get my hands on it.

E3 2016 Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Hands On Impression stars

We managed to get a sneak peak at the new upcoming game, Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization with the publishers at Bandai Namco. Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization is a new action RPG developed under the eye of the creator himself Reki Kawahara and is set in a game-original Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online game (VRMMO game,) called Sword Art: Origin, which is based on the servers from the original Sword Art Online.

Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book (PS4) Review stars

Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book is the 17th game in the primary Atelier series, and the start of a new setting after Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea concludes the Dusk installment series. It maintains many of the franchise's long-standing traditions but it also finds room to try new and notable things. Developer Gust takes more chances to shake things up, and it pays off. It compliment's the series' best parts (like the alchemy system) and supports the weaker aspects of the formula.
