I work out of Toronto, Ontario as the Editor of Gaming here on the Plug-in Blog and as Editor-in-Chief of NextGen Player. I am thankful for having a loving and patient wife who doesn’t mind my 40 hour a week obsession with gaming. See my latest gaming adventures on my Twitter channel.

Today at E3 2015 I had the esteemed privilege to meet with the folks at Disney Interactive to check out Disney Infinity 3.0–the Play Set games and the characters figures. I have to say, the more I learned about this year’s version, and the longer I played, the more excited I got! Here’s why Disney Infinity 3.0 is shaping up to be the best entry in the series yet!

Last night at E3 2015 gave us the ingural PC Gaming Show, and event celebrating PC gaming culture, and giving us a look at the future of PC games and tech.

CBS’s “The Talk” host Aisha Tyler was back again this year to MC Ubisoft’s E3 2015 press conference, and what a show it was!

Let’s look at the games! 

At E3 2015, Square Enix hosted there first conference in many years, and it was obvious why they have such a large presence this year: so many great games! What impressed me the most is how Square Enix is diversifying their games line-up, which ranges from open world, to stealth, the third-person action, to classic JRPGs. They presented games for everyone, and many of their biggest titles are launching this fall! Let’s take a look at what they showed us.  

With the E3 2015 show floor now open, I made a bee line over to the Nintendo booth to gets some hands-on time with their hottest upcoming releases for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. I had a chance to check out many games shown on Nintendo’s online streamed Digital Event, including Mario Maker, Yoshi’s Woolly World, Star Fox Zero, and more. Let’s take a look!

One thing was clear from watching Sony’s PlayStation E3 2015 Press Conference: they have games for everyone on the horizon.

At Microsoft’s Xbox E3 2015 keynote address, the company unveiled what they described as the “Greatest Holiday Games Lineup in Xbox History”. With games like Halo 5, Forza Motorsport 6, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Gears of War: Ultimate Edition all coming this fall I can’t help but agree–this is going to be the best holiday ever for Xbox fans!

Last night Bethesda brought their A game, or should I say games, to the Dolby Theatre in north Hollywood, officially kicking off the E3 2015 press conferences. What a show it was, delivering exciting updates on hugely anticipated games like Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, as well as confirming releases for DOOM and Dishonored 2!
