Once again, the Christmas of gaming has fallen upon us in early June. I’m talking about E3 of course. It’s practically a holiday of information for gamers everywhere. Video game developers of all shapes in sizes from locales all over the world gather in Los Angeles to show gamers their goods. One of the enormous sized companies, Electronic Arts (EA), was one of the five big gaming corporations to hold their own press conference. Because EA had a wide range of announcements, we needed two Analog Addiction editors to cover the topics. Today, I, Robbie Key, and Hugh Simmonds are here to discuss everything the ginormous publishing company covered.
With yet another E3 done and dusted, we all go back to our daily routines and lives and let the announcements of the past few days sink in. However, some reactions are funnier than others. We’re going to have a look at some from one of my personal favourite gems of Twitter, Sony CEO Kaz Hirai, or rather, the parody account in his name.

Here’s the demo!
Konami has revealed Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain for the Xbox One and has shown the new gameplay demo for at the Microsoft press conference thus kicking off E3 2013.
A couple of months ago, Analog Addiction brought you news that someone, known as Bacteria, had created a 15-in-1 console. It got me thinking about a speculation that shows itself in the game industry every now and then; what would it be like if there was only one console? A console created by a third party, where Microsoft, Sony, and even Nintendo were all just publishers. Would it benefit gamers or would it destroy gaming? With E3 just around the corner, here’s some pros and cons to a ‘universal/ third party’ console.
Since the incredibly popular open-world Western title Red Dead Redemption released in May 2010, there have not been many games set in the wild wild west during the 1800s. Even before then, Western titles were as barren as the deserts the games are often set in. In 2006, the Call of Juarez series spawned with its first game for the PC where it and was later ported to the Xbox 360 in 2007. While they are not necessarily the most critically acclaimed or incredibly popular titles, many who have played the games have found them to be enjoyable experiences, myself included.
Alan and myself slowly drive our way to the location of a supply trade; the group was enthusiastic about the trade and it seemed in my best interest (as the latest survivor) to make sure things went smoothly. Alan is a obnoxious loud-mouth, yet it’s easy to tell he has the best intentions for the group at heart. The sun sets as we methodically travel to the meeting, making sure to keep the noise level to a complete silence. As night looms, the dark sets in. Almost foreboding the events that were to follow.

Dust: An Elysian Tail is a 2D action/adventure RPG released last year on XBLA. It received high scores from all around the internet, with our own Jamie Briggs giving it a stunning 9/10. Last month, Dust made its way to the PC market as well, via Steam, and I had the immense pleasure of experiencing it. Dust: An Elysian Tail is truly a gem among games; something which everyone should play. Here’s why…
Here’s a thought – every last protagonist in the Grand Theft Auto series starts his adventure in a fresh new city. Whether it’s Claude, after escaping the prison convoy and starting a new life in Liberty City, Tommy, after a drug-deal goes horribly wrong and he’s stuck in Vice City, Carl, after coming back to San Andreas only to find his whole gang in trouble, or Niko, after coming back to Liberty City only to find out his cousin is a complete liar. Now, GTA V is on the horizon, and we ask ourselves – are Michael, Trevor, and Franklin new to San Andreas as well?
