San Diego Comic-Con 2018 is nearly upon us, and the oncoming onslaught of debuts, reveals, and media morsels can feel almost as overwhelming as being on the convention floor itself. While last year’s convention schedule was jam-packed (Infinity War! Black Panther! Westworld!), SDCC 2018’s programming slate feels considerably more fan-friendly. With no major Marvel Studios panel scheduled this year (and thus no new Captain Marvel or Avengers 4 information), no giant Game of Thrones surprises planned, and a number of obvious suspects sitting out the proceedings, SDCC 2018 feels a bit lighter than usual. Which isn’t to say that this year’s convention won’t be equal parts exhilaration and exhaustion — we still have four days full of announcements and trailers that’ll have people talking.

It has been confirmed by BioWare that they might give Anthem the Andromeda treatment by introducing romance options for various different characters. That said I personally believe that it is perfectly OK for Anthem to not have any romance options upon release, and I will be … [Read more...] about Removing Anthem Romance Options Is Not A Good Idea
Every year before E3, we talk about the games we expect to see, along with the ones that we hope we’ll get to take another look at. These include the obvious ones, like big games announced at the previous year’s conference. But they’re also the hypothetical projects, the titles that we’ve neither seen nor heard from in years — perhaps since they were first announced. Some games have gone quiet much longer than others, though. We’ve gathered up some of the most notable “missing in action” games that we'd love to see make a grand reappearance at this year’s big show. Below, we’ll offer an update on each game, plus our assessment of the likelihood of the project resurfacing at E3 2017 (on a scale of 1 to 10). Follow along and reminisce about some of the industry’s most elusive games. (A quick note: We weighed in on many of these titles last year. In those cases, we’ve generally lifted the original text, with some … [Read more...] about Will these 12 games miss E3 this year?
