The Third Party E3 2016 Booths In Pictures

Posted on June 20, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

There were absolutely dozens upon dozens of booths with hundreds of interactive experiences for attendees to try. Fionna and I tried to see as many booths as we could and play as many games as humanly possible with only six hours of floor time per day. Here is a visual rundown of some of the 3rd party booths – so not Microsoft, Sony or other major console manufacturers – from both the North and South Hall.  


Just outside of the South Hall cafeteria was a small multi-part booth for the recently released 10 Cloverfield Lane. If you read my review of the film when it hit theatres last Spring you’ll know that I absolutely love the franchise. The booth in South Hall was complete with a functional jukebox and board games that attendees could play. A little odd for a movie to have a booth at E3 but hey it works. 


Near the back of the IndieCade booth in Sout Hall was a small game called _Transfer being demonstrated off of the main programmer’s laptop. This game has a sci-fi / cyberpunk feel and from the 10 minute demo that I played gave me the same kind of feelings that Analogue: A Hate Story gave him – memories and identity are at the core of this unique experience. 


The folks from Kona were at E3 also at the IndieCade booth, unfortunately all I saw was their laptop with a wallpaper. No developers were on hand for my time at the Indiecade booth 🙁 


A number of unique experiences were on offer at the IndieCade booth include a real life adventure game set in an 8 year old’s bedroom, indie titles like Inversus and it was one of the only spaces where people could sit together on an actual play together.  




Natsume had a medium sized booth complete with an inflatable tree, Harvest Moon demo-stations and the chance for fans to get some awesome swag provided that they play all four titles available at the booth.  



Rebellion showcased Sniper Elite 4 in a pretty sweet lounge.




Some general shots of both Halls, the crowd outside on Day 2 and other general areas of the convention.



Capcom went all out for their E3 experience: A dilapidated demo theatre for the stealth announcement of Resident Evil 7, A replica of the actual courtroom from the Ace Attorney franchise complete with fans shouting “OBJECTION!”  and a playable demo of Dead Rising 4 being played alongside members of the Capcom Vancouver development team. Of course some of our collegues have found that playing Resident Evil 7 in VR can be a bit of a nightmare!



Square Enix brought a lot of stuff to E3 -their booth had several stations for Final Fantasy XVStar Ocean VKingdom Hearts 2.8Final Fantasy XII HD and more. It would have been easy to lose an entire day of E3 to the offerings at Square Enix’s booth alone. Don’t forget that Kingdom Hearts 2.8 includes new content not found in other games – if you missed the E3 trailer from a few days ago check it out here.

That’s it! The conclusion of our 2016 3rd party booth tour in pictures. Do you think that a number of the games announced at E3 will be successful? Let us know which booth from E3 was your favorite in the comments below.

Just to recap some of the biggest games we’ve seen so far at E3 2016: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Lawbreakers, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Resident Evil 7, Death Striding and Gravity Rush 2. AAA publishers like Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo alongside smaller indie develoeprs brought their best games to this year’s E3 Expo!



Ace Attorney: from game to anime

Posted on May 23, 2016 by Jason Nason

Adapted from the popular video game franchise, Ace Attorney follows rookie lawyer Phoenix Wright and his assistant Maya as he defends his clients in a court of law. With limited evidence and logic as his only weapon, can Phoenix Wright turn the case around when all the odds are stacked against him?

I’ve just discovered the series and have only gotten started with it, but it is pretty fun so far. Much like the games, Ace Attorney doesn’t take itself too seriously and breaks up some of the serious tension of the subject matter with some humerous bits. And if you’ve enjoyed the games then you’ll feel right at home watching this one.

Haven’t you been playing a game and after watching a cutscene or reading extended segments of dialgue just wanted to keep passively watching the game. Well now you sorta can.

Phoenix Wright Returns in Ace Attorney 5

Posted on September 4, 2012 by Jeff Wade

Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu promised big Capcom news earlier this week. Well, the ruling is in, and via Andriasang, we know now the magazine has the scoop on the return of gaming’s favorite attorney.

Teased earlier this year, these are the first concrete details on the long in the works sequels. Phoenix Wright returns, as does the trial based gameplay last seen in Apollo Justice Ace Attorney. As speculated, the series will make the jump to 3DS.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy Is Coming To iOS

Posted on August 29, 2012 by Seung Lee

It seems that The World Ends With You won’t be the only popular DS game to receive an HD-enhanced iOS port. Capcom has announced that the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney trilogy on the DS (which was also on the Gameboy Advance, but only in Japan) will be available on the App Store for 5.0 or higher iOS devices. The first two out of five episodes for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney will be free to everyone, but the rest of the episodes and the other two games, Justice for All and Trials and Tribulations, will have to be bought separately or in a bundle.

The games will feature a new mode where players can express themselves, with the aid of some popular Ace Attorney characters. The main attraction, though, is the HD graphics. Characters and backgrounds look much, much better than they did in the GBA and DS versions. There’s no info yet on how much each game or the bundle will cost.
