    E3 2017 was rife with amazing surprises and other developments that our team worked tirelessly to cover, 'round the clock, for the entirety of the show. But which announcements truly took the cake? Which were the best of the best? Best Visual Art Style: Ori and the Will of the Wisps No one was expecting a follow-up to the excellent Ori and the Blind Forest, but we're getting a sequel, and this one looks even better than the previous game.

    As someone who's been a longtime fan of the Call of Duty series, I found myself less and less entertained with the games as they ventured further into the future. Although the franchise has remained a financial success, many question some of the creative decisions made in recent years. Sledgehammer looks to turn all of that around with their upcoming Call of Duty WW2. I played 30 minutes of multiplayer at E3 and was surprisingly impressed at how much fun I was having with a franchise I …
