E3 2019: Daedalic Entertainment Showcase

Independent publishers like Daedalic Entertainment are always fun to visit at E3 because you really don’t know what they’re going to be bringing to the table. As a publisher, they are in a position to pick up and market games easily missed amongst the din of the big AAA publishers.

E3 2019: Dying Light 2

If there’s one game that I don’t think there’s enough love for, it’s Dying Light. Techland’s first person zombie slayer/parkour simulator was so much fun because the controls were pitch perfect, rewarding scavenging system, meaty combat, and a non-cosmetic day/night that significantly impacted gameplay. Being stuck outside at night, far away from UV traps that keep the hungry undead at bay was a real lesson in tension and terror as the urban environments became a stomping ground for stronger and deadlier creatures. What felt like a hard reset of concepts introduced in Dead Island, Dying Light easily ranks high on my list of top games this generation.
