The summer has been pretty light on new game releases, so instead I’ve gone back to play some of my old favorites. Recently I’ve been playing the first game in the Mass Effect trilogy, which came out for the Xbox 360 and PC in 2007.
The Electronic Entertainment Expo, also known as E3, is the biggest video game industry trade show of the year. Last week at the Expo, Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo all showed off the games they’ll be releasing in the next 12 months.
I don’t play many games on my smartphone. I don’t normally want to sacrifice the battery life, especially if I have a dedicated gaming portable like my Nintendo 3DS with me. But sometimes, smartphone games grab me, especially if they play quick and have a social aspect to them.
I’ve had Nintendo’s Wii U console since February, but there haven’t been very many games exclusive for the system that have been worth buying. Perhaps it is for this reason that both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, which have been out for less than a month, have both already outsold the Wii U. Now a game has come out, though, that makes the Wii U worth picking up.
Nintendo’s 3DS and Sony’s PS Vita are both fantastic portable gaming consoles, and tablets like the iPad have a great game selection, but generally games for these systems are different from the games released for home consoles.
I've bought a few new games recently: Pokémon Y, Kingdom Hearts 1.5, New Super Luigi U and Infinity Blade III. But, honestly, I haven't had a lot of time to play any of them. I've been immersed at work in front of a computer screen.
