5 Games We Hoped To See at E3 2016 But Didn't

17 June 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With E3 2016 now at an end we can take a breath and look back at all the fun surprises and reveals this year had in store. Like everyone, we had a list of expectations heading into E3, but there are several games that missed the show which makes us pretty sad.  Come inside to check out our list.

The Rise of the Tomb Raider PS4 (Or Expansion)

I don’t know if people realize it, but The Rise of Tomb Raider is set to come out on PS4 sometime this year. So far all we have is a “holiday 2016” time frame, and Sony could actually use the helping hand with their lackluster Fall lineup.

All that being said I was extremely scared that Sony cooked up some type of “exclusive” deal for an expansion. I own the game on Xbox One and I »

Spider-Man Is Just The Beginning, More Marvel Titles Coming

15 June 2016 12:04 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

If you were excited about Spider-Man getting a new game, then you might also be excited to hear that more studios are working on more games.

In an interview with Polygon Marvel's Jay Ong, Vice President of games, there are more titles coming.

"When I joined Marvel two years ago, I came in with a mandate to usher in a new era for Marvel Games."

"Is [Spider-Man] a signal of things to come? Oh, yes. Absolutely. And we can’t wait to tell the world about it."

There is no confirmation, but this could be why Activision had been losing licenses to Marvel characters over recent years. It seems as though Spider-Man and Wolverine have also ended, and Activision has removed almost all Marvel character based games from their website.

This means licenses can land elsewhere if another studio would like to make the games. Where exactly? Well Jay Ong confirmed that Telltale, Sony, and WB are all confirmed studios to be working on something, but that's not all. He said there are deals elswhere that he can't announce just yet, but we can hear more later this year.

It's safe to say that Marvel titles really haven't been great in a long while. It's been some time since the X-Men Destiny and Ultimate Alliance. This is why Marvel is being selective of partners and licenses, insuring a quality standard, and hopefully their own Batmah Arkham title will arise. Could Spider-Man from Insomniac be that game?

"The question is, 'How we can get there?' The thing we landed on is to be really selective with who we partner with. Extremely selective. Right now I would say that out of every 10 opportunities we look at, we maybe do one."

Ong went on to state that the Activision formula of tying games to movie releases will not be a focus. The upcoming Spider-Man title has nothing to do with the upcoming film release, Homecoming. However if the releases hit around the same time, it's great, but not part of the building process. They want each game to be awesome.

This is fantastic news because we can see where these franchises go. I'm also happy that Marvel is licensing per product instead of throwing the entire Marvel license under one belt.

Road to E3 2016 - The Games We Hope to See

19 May 2016 12:25 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Our Road to E3 2016 continues this week as the Cinelinx crew gather to discuss the video games they Hope to see at this year's big event.  Come inside to see what's on their gaming wishlist and tell us your own!  

Last week, we kicked off our Road to E3 journey with a video breaking down the top five games we expect to make an appearance at the show this year.  This week, we're tackling the games we Hope to see.  Although the chances of seeing some of these games might be slim, we're crossing our fingers.  Let's get to it: 



Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster 

To be entirely honest, I was willing to bet good money last year's E3 would have given us a Mass Effect trilogy remaster announcement.  With Mass Effect: Andromeda set to release early next year (though it was originally slated for This year), it seems like »
