Bethesda Press Conference – E3 2018

Devolver Digital Press Conference – E3 2018

Devolver’s press conference last year was a bit on the wild side, which is appropriate because it’s at the end of the day and everyone’s delirious. The publisher appears to have similar plans for E3 2018, as it’s already apologizing for whatever antics it has in mind.

PC Gaming Show: Monday, June 11 @6:00 PM

PC Gaming Show – E3 2018

The PC Gaming Show is a wildcard conference every year. With no official company affiliation, it’s a mystery what games and announcements will come from it up until the point we’re watching. Past years have been very focused on what is specific to PC gaming, so whether or not it will have anything to offer you will probably depend on whether or not you actively play games on your computer.
