Highlights from gaming's Mecca

E3 is just over. The streams have gone quiet, the roadies have piled the pomp and circumstance into giant boxes and trucks and there is a peace about the show floor. However, the show this year came with quite a few surprises, not to mention a few things we were expecting but turned out even better than we thought. Here's a quick breakdown of the highlights from the news of E3.

Blue Shellshock

Mario Kart 8' races to the Wii U

'Mario Kart 8' is everything you'd expect out of a sequel: a base good game with features layered on top of it to make it fresh. Honestly, if you expected anything less than quality out of Nintendo's perennial mascot racer, I'd just have to have you pass in your gamer card right now. But are there enough differences from previous entries in the 'Mario Kart' series to warrant a purchase? Here's my nitty-gritty.

It's A Not-So-Small World

5 fantastic open-world games

I'm a sucker for three things in particular in gaming: Metroidvanias, action RPGs and open-world games. Open-world games have a sense of lawlessness and a personality brought on more by how the player interacts with the world around them rather than the other way around. Driven by my desire to completely dissect a game and see what makes it tick, I find that the opportunities afforded by miles of map to explore makes open-world games a proper canvas for my adventures. Here's a few of my favorites:

Smashingly Good News!

Nintendo outlines the fourth Smash Bros.'

On April 8, Nintendo hosted one of their online news sessions (known as Directs) for the brandiest-newest 'Smash Bros.' game coming out. Simply known as 'Super Smash Bros. for Wii-U/3DS,' most of the information about the game had been gleaned from daily screenshots and sparse video footage from the developer, but with this Direct, Nintendo opened the floodgates and gave us a whopping 39 minutes of info. Here are some of the bullet points:

Remembering Half-Life 2

A look back at the seminal classic

I still remember the day that the 'Half-Life 2' demo came out. I was ecstatic about the possibility of seeing the sequel to Valve's original classic, and in my haste, I didn't exactly check the specs of my parents' computer. I got the demo downloaded, and I could almost feel the gravity gun in my hands as it began to load.

Three horror games to avoid

I am a gigantic chicken. It's a well-documented fact that I'm squeamish around anything that can remotely come close to horror. However, I do have a tendency to at least attempt to play horror games. I'm not sure if it's because I'm in control of the action or if I just have a virtual death wish, but I actually do enjoy playing scary games despite my long-standing disposition on terrifying entertainment.

Getting Better, Not Older

Nintendo, meet the modern age

While I may have been extolling the virtues of Nintendo's newest 3D Mario game last week, that doesn't exactly take them out of the hot water that they've placed themselves in. They recently lowered their Wii U sales forecast by 6.2 million units. Now, I don't follow the mindset that Nintendo is immediately doomed by this, but I will absolutely say that they are completely out of touch with all the possibilities that could give them a huge boost in income and potential console sales. Lemme break it down for you:

Extra Life

Author's Note: Just a bit of a heads-up, this article has barely anything to do with gaming, so if you've come for my normal brand of gibberish, you may be slightly disappointed. However, if you'd like to read a slightly different brand of gibberish, come on in.

My brain hasn't been functioning lately.
