Fallout 4, a video game about a grizzled German Shepherd who learns how to love, took home the Game Critics award for Best of E3 this year. Other big winners included Star Wars Battlefront and Uncharted 4.
I was meeting with Vávra at E3 out of curiosity about his game—one of our writers has been really into it. A PR firm had invited us to see the game, and I was sure it’d make for an interesting meeting.
Last Friday, the people who are making No Man’s Sky told me they’d been late to a meeting with Steven Spielberg. The legendary director waited, though, because he was fiending to play No Man’s Sky. No pressure, right?
When the developers of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst introduced their new game at E3, they mostly focused on how players would be free to explore a large open world. Cool, I thought. Good. This is a good thing.
