It was always going to be the mode that the #GAMEFireteam were the most excited for! In this wrap-up feature, we let you know what it’s really like to find yourself in a 6v6 match-up and why you’ll most likely be itching to jump into your own Sparrow.Check our out Destiny Multiplayer impressions here!
Another title which was shown as part of Sony’s e3 Conference, the Order 1886 looks like an entertaining slice of Victorian steam-punk horror. To celebrate, we now have details of a rather fancy Collector’s Edition which includes various physical replica items as well as DLC in a rather lovely looking decorated box!
After a hectic few days for the #GAMEFireteam, we sat down with Destiny competition winners, Nayan and Leigh, to find out what they enjoyed about this once in a lifetime trip to sunny L.A to visit E3, and why they will be keen to start their own Fireteam once they get home.
Our fellow Guardians both study game design at their respected universities, so, it was no surprise to us that they’d be enthusiastic to jump straight into Destiny for themselves. On Wednesday evening, after the showfloor was closed for the night, we attended a special after hours hands-on session, in the company of the bright minds behind Bungie, including community lead, Deej.
…To read more of our Guardian’s Journey, check out here
Today is the last day for #GAMEFireteam!
We were sent here on a mission, a mission to be one of the first people to get hands-on with Destiny and experience The Crucible ready for tomorrows Alpha.
We’ve played Destiny after hours, chatted with Deej, the community lead at Bungie and even heard first-hand about the development process from lead art producers on the project.
It’s been a special E3 for our Destiny competition winners, Leigh & Nayan. They’ve not only both bagged themselves a once in a lifetime trip but they’ll also be going home with a PS4 ready for the alpha tomorrow. Right, I think we have a Sparrow to board, folks! Farewell!
Today, we’ll be traversing the E3 showfloor in search of amazing games. We’ll tell you this, you don’t have to look far to find them, but you do have to walk far to see them all!
We’ll be dropping by our friends at Bethesda, Ubisoft, Disney, SEEEGAAA, Warner and Konami before closing out the day with Activision!
Check out all of our developer walkthrough videos from the last few days right here!
Last night we got to kick back on the E3 showfloor at the Xbox stand after the show ended. We got to check out all of their big releases on the horizon.

Good afternoon, UK!
The #GAMEFireteam have brought you first-hand Destiny solo-play experience, videos of gameplay and even a few cheeky photos so far…
Stay tuned with us today as we head to the Activision booth for even more Destiny hands-on and the chance to meet Deej, the community lead from Bungie.
Are you ready, Guardians?
Monday evening was special for the GAMEFireteam & the GAME Away Team as we were selected as one of the first group of people to get hands-on with Destiny.
As you can imagine, we were pretty excited. Overlooking downtown L.A, we stepped into the role of a Guardian and took on the challenge of saving humanity. Not a small task at 21:00 after a day filled with Media Briefings, but we were ready! Our minds were ready.
We got to experience an array of different game modes, in this first part, we introduce solo play to you…
Homefront is back! Developed by Crytek on CryEngine 3 for Xbox One, PS4, PC and MAC
Our demo started in a dingy resistance base, dust fills the air, lights flicker and light is cast moodily over the room and the people in it. It’s clear right from the get go that CryEngine 3 is a force to be reckoned with and the guys and girls at Crytek are pumping it for every morsel of visual juice.
From our queue we piled into a room where we were all greeted by a writer on the Destiny project. He told us how he was looking forward to showing us spreadsheets and talking about his love of Destiny for the next hour but then… He was abruptly cut off as the room filled with footage of Destiny and walk through on just what Bungie has been up to.
Next we took our stations and assumed the role of Guardians. The room was divided into sections of six, meaning that you stood with your team, and could speak over voice chat. We had our own Destiny coach, who also pointed out tips/tricks as the game unfolded.
We’ll save all the juicy details for a feature length article, but trust us, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, even though our team lost!
Check out the photo below, your very own Sparrow, ready to aboard!
In our Borderlands chat, we talk weapons, characters, story, Claptrap, dancing… and cricket?! Yep, cricket will be in The Pre-Sequel after a fashion, all thanks to the 2K Aus influence.
We then hit up Sr Producer of Evolve – Michael Boccieri! He gives us the low-down on the new Hunters, the Kraken, different ways to play and talks group tactics!
Make sure you stay tuned for when our videos go live later today!
Check out a shot of the 2K E3 stand!
We’ve just checked out a small bit of EVOLVE and witnessed the brand new Kraken beastie! Get to stage three evolution as the beast and you everyone may aswell give up… Or so we’re told.
We’ll also be checking out Borderlands the Pre-Sequel and more! We’ll have some video and words to share soon!
After the excitement around the reveal of Battlefield Hardline in the EA livestream yesterday, we have a bit of a treat for you!
The Deluxe edition is available now, and don’t forget when you preorder at Game you also get the exclusive Precision Battlepack which includes a super-accurate assault rifle, a unique camo skin, and an ever-handy XP boost!
LIVE from the Destiny queue, ladies and gentlemen.
From our cheeky play through last night this is the first time our entire Fireteam will get hands-on.
Leigh is excited to get to grips with the Warlock class whereas IGN’s Fireteam Ash is keen to jump into his first Sparrow… All will be revealed soon!
As part of Nintendo’s e3 Direct livestream earlier today, the release date for the forthcoming remakes of GBA Ruby and Sapphire was announced as 21st November for the US.The European date has been confirmed as the 28th November, still an extra week won’t hurt eh? Looks like it could be a very busy Christmas for poke-fans!
One of the more intriguing announcements from Sony’s e3 conference was PlayStation TV
Due for European release in Autumn, this handy little box allows you to play your PS Vita games on your television, as well as stream your PlayStation 4 games to another television not connected to the console, very handy to stop any arguments over who is watching the TV!

The final pieces of prep begins!
The first stream of E3 2014 has ended. So, what did we learn about The Witcher 3 from the guys and girls over at CD Projekt RED?
The stream showed off a brand new trailer, showcasing the gorgeous brooding vistas and a quick ‘blink-and-you’ll-miss-em’ glance at some of the beasties you’ll encounter! Also revealed, was a Feb 24th 2015 release date, as well as the reveal of the Collector’s Edition of the game.
Whilst the trailer didn’t divulge too much (we expect to see more at E3 in a few short days), we can tell you that the developers are putting a lot of love and time into giving life to the vast world. The dev team informed us that the world would be made up of striking landmarks (or Points of Interest) which are there to urge players to explore the land and seek out further adventure! The team are working on adding even more Points of Interest into the game, with a view to offering players a visual delight and adventurous impulse, no matter where they are in the world.
We’ll bring you more on The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt, directly from the E3 showfloor next week.
Come back here at 7PM tonight to watch CD Projekt RED dish details and new gameplay of The Witcher 3, in the first livestream of E3 2014! You’ll be able to catch the stream right above this blog!
