Rise of the Tomb Raider E3 Primer Trailer

Microsoft is kicking off the E3 hype train early for the Xbox One exclusive Rise of the Tomb Raider

We are just a couple weeks away from E3 with game developers and publishers gearing up to put their best upcoming titles on display. Out of all the groups that are coming to E3 there’s one that everyone has their eye on, Microsoft. The tech giant is shaping up to dominate E3 this year as Sony and Nintendo come up dry for exclusives, while Microsoft is coming out swinging. The Xbox One is boasting an impressive list of exclusive titles including Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Despite anger from fans that Crystal Dynamic has made the sequel to the first title in the Tomb Raider series reboot an Xbox exclusive, Rise of the Tomb Raider is looking like an amazing next entry. Continuing to develop a young Lara Croft into the high adrenaline adventurer we’ve come to know. Microsoft has made it clear how excited they are to have the title be an Xbox One exclusive and today they decided to share that excitement with fans.

They’ve kicked off their hype train for Rise of the Tomb Raider early with a CGI trailer that showcases the voice acting talent that’s going into the game while hinting at what we can expect from its gameplay. It appears Lara’s near death experiences in the last Tomb Raider title have only strengthened her drive to do something great with her life. Looking back on famous adventurers such as Emilia Earhart as she wonders what drove them to scour the world for something greater.

Rise of the Tomb Raider might just become Microsoft’s answer to the Sony exclusive Uncharted series. If nothing else it should help fill the Nathan Drake shaped hole in gamers hearts now that Sony has delayed the next title in the Uncharted series until next year. Provided that Microsoft is able to release Rise of the Tomb Raider this year alongside its other first party exclusives. We’re sure to hear about the games release date and more at the E3 Xbox conference on June 15.

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.
