Feature: What We Expect From Nintendo's E3 Direct

What We Expect From Nintendo's E3 Direct

Quite a lot, actually

So after plenty of build up and waiting for all the other presentations to finish, the E3 Nintendo Direct is now a matter of hours away. It's a diversion away from the live presentations of past years, but as a pre-recorded and scripted video it has the potential to be a well-paced extravaganza; we hope it'll seize the day...

It's the Ubisoft Presentation - Live!

Here we go... shall we see what Ubisoft have in store?

So, E3 is upon us, and welcome to our first live stream of the year from the expo. Why Ubisoft? For one simple reason, it's a publisher and developer that's shown plenty of support for Wii U over the past year. There are some high-profile multi-platform titles coming to the system that'll be...

Use your happy face
