During E3, our team stumbled across HIDEit Mounts, a company that essentially takes your consoles off of your tables and shelves and put them on the wall. Basically, they're selling wall mounts for consoles and controllers, which when put into writing sounds like a pretty common-sense idea, but it wasn't something we had ever encountered. The sales pitch was—as expected from a marketer attending E3—really solid: put your gaming hardware on the wall. It'll make less clutter with the wires, decrease the chance of misplacing controllers, and it'll look sexy in the process.

We decided to review the Nintendo Switch and controller mounts. Read the full review to find out how these wall mounts...hold up! *snicker*

In a recent interview with GameSpot, Hajime Tabata, the director of Final Fantasy XV, spoke at length about his plans for his next project in the Final Fantasy series. Although he's not sure if he wants his next game to feature an open world, Tabata has said that he wants to at least imitate the feeling of an open world game, as he wanted players to get the "overall experience" of playing in a massive world. This "overall experience" would be heavily inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which Tabata calls a "very polished" and "almost a perfect game."

When Dontnod Entertainment released Life is Strange in 2015, it had a surefire hit on its hands. By combining the choose-your-own adventure style made popular by Telltale Games and a dark, compelling story, Life is Strange still holds the top spot on my list of games that made me cry. Though Dontnod is currently at work on a sequel, developer Deck Nine is working on taking the franchise to the past with Life is Strange: Before the Storm.
