E3 2015 is closing in fast and I’m sure you’re just dying to hear all about the latest games and see all the latest trailers. But why watch the most important gaming event of the year from home when you can experience it in person? I know, I know, not everyone can afford a trip to Los Angeles, especially if you live in another country. As fate would have it though, you can get to E3 2015 for free if you’re good at drawing and know your video game characters in and out.

Ubisoft is currently organizing a very interesting competition that will test your artistic skills and allow you to win some neat prizes in the process. As you might have already gathered by now, the big prize is an all-expenses paid trip to E3 2015 and there are actually a total of six such trips up for grabs. Ubisoft estimates that one such trip would cost around $3,600, which is not exactly pocket change. What’s more, the company is also giving away “a year’s worth” of Ubisoft games to another six winners. These games include: Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, Watch Dogs, The Crew, Trials Fusion, Child of Light, and Valiant Hearts. Basically, all the Ubisoft games released in 2014. Finally, eight more participants will be able to draw it out for a chance to win a Uplay Shop voucher good for $50.

Free games are awesome, but most will likely try to win the trip to E3 2015. In order to do so there are a few rules that participants have to keep in mind, and they’re pretty straight forward. The company says that anyone (at least anyone 21 years or older) can participate by drawing a fan art consisting of a character and a background. Each participant will be able to select their format of choice and must submit their creations until April 30th for the jury to analyze. You can find more details about this competition right here. As for E3 2015, the highly anticipated gaming event takes place at the Los Angeles Convention Center between June 14 – 18.

There hasn’t been much buzz lately about any new acquisitions in the world of video game intellectual property. According to a recent report, Sony is currently engaged in discussions with a well-funded partner to potentially acquire the renowned film studio Paramount, along with all the exciting possibilities that come with such a merger.

As reported in the New York Times (thanks, ResetEra), Sony Picture Entertainment is reportedly in discussions with Apollo Global Management, an investment firm, as per two sources familiar with the matter. In the past, Apollo had made an offer to acquire Paramount for a minimum of $26 billion, but their bid was ultimately turned down.

The terms of the joint bid are currently under discussion, and there is a chance that the two parties may decide against making a formal offer. Unnamed sources have revealed that Paramount is currently in exclusive discussions with Skydance, preventing any official offer from being made at this time. Investor opposition to the recent deal that Skydance brought seems to have been significant.

The potential impact of such an acquisition is immense. First and foremost, it would introduce adaptations of Sonic and Halo into the expanding media empire of the PlayStation platform holder. Following the announcement, Paramount’s stock experienced a significant 11% surge in after-hours trading.

In the ongoing conflict against the Automaton invasion fleet, the Helldivers 2 players have successfully halted their advance. However, the situation has now reached a tiresome stalemate. Yet again, the machines refuse to take a break from their relentless pursuit of progress, with reports emerging of the Factory Striders being deployed in record-breaking quantities.

There have been reports of alleged machines that were supposedly encountered during Operation Swift Disassembly, which was just the beginning of a larger campaign. However, these accounts should be taken with a grain of salt, as they are unverified and seem to be more on the imaginative side. Factory Striders have gained a reputation as formidable weapons platforms that can produce more Automatons while enduring significant damage. If the machines are able to withstand such a relentless assault, it will be necessary to develop innovative strategies.

Have you come across groups of Factory Striders in Helldivers 2? Which strategies are proving to be the most effective in taking down these armored brutes? The Orbital Railcannon Strike will prove to be a valuable asset in the comments section below.

Todd Howard affirms that the timeline of the Fallout series is coherent and well-constructed

The recent release of Amazon’s adaptation of Fallout has ignited a renewed interest in the series and brought attention to the captivating alternate history that forms its foundation. Fans have expressed concern that the TV show’s events might be at odds with the plot of the Obsidian Entertainment video game New Vegas. Warning: Spoilers ahead for New Vegas and Amazon’s show!

Bethesda Game Studios director Todd Howard and Fallout TV executive producer Jonathan Nolan recently sat down with IGN to discuss the timeline. Howard was taken aback when showrunners Graham Wagner and Geneva Robertson-Dworet presented him with the surprising concept of obliterating Shady Sands, the bustling capital of the New California Republic, in the aftermath of the events in New Vegas. Howard eventually warmed up to the idea: “After discussing it, we realized that this could be a significant story moment that many things hinge upon.”

It seems that they had to make some tough decisions to ensure everything fell into place, but Howard emphasizes the importance of preserving the integrity of the Fallout timeline: “We take great care with the timeline. There seems to be some confusion in certain areas. However, all the events from the previous games, including New Vegas, did occur. We take great caution in that matter. We’re really pushing the limits here, but the explosions occur right after the events of New Vegas.

What are your thoughts on this? Is it up to par? Even though it may not have a significant impact on the overall quality of the games or show, it is comforting to know that those in charge are paying attention. We value your feedback and would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below.
