In a surprise video posted to Facebook, Reggie Fils-Aime of Nintendo of America has detailed the company's E3 2013 showing, answering a few of the questions people have posed. The most obvious one regards Nintendo's choice of not holding an E3 conference. Reggie's response is that Nintendo is always ready to surprise people. The answer was followed by a reveal of what Nintendo would be doing for E3.

On 7AM PT, June 11, Nintendo will be holding a Nintendo Direct instead of a conference, showing heavy-hitters like a new 3D Mario, Smash Bros., and Mario Kart. At 12PM PT, Nintendo will release developer interview videos. An hour later, a software recap video will become available, and a day-one wrap up video will join it that night. Apart from the day's timeline, Reggie announced that they will be simultaneously posting on their Twitter and Facebook accounts what is revealed during the Nintendo Direct and throughout the day, so anyone without access to a livestream can still learn everything without waiting for posts to appear.

Nintendo has made some controversial decisions in the last couple of weeks. Tell us in the comments if you think their new strategy will succeed.

Update: Square-Enix UK has uploaded an English version of the trailer- See it after the jump

I won't lie - I'm still shocked that Square Enix has actually decided to make a third in the Final Fantasy XIII series, even though it was initially announced quite a while back. It feels almost surreal to live in a world where a developer forges forth with a set of characters and plot lines despite their cultural status being near-universally panned.

Anyway, Square Enix has jumped the gun on their upcoming E3 show to give the world a new glimpse into the world of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. This time around, Lightning apparently switches outfits depending on the occasion and sports a nifty pair of sunglasses, and there appears to be quite a bit of melodrama going on. Unfortunately I don't speak Japanese and there are no subtitles, so basically all of it is lost on me.

Stay tuned for the inevitable English version, which will probably make the goings-on much clearer.

"A short time ago, in a galaxy far from far away, prepare for an astonishing adventure through history full of danger and full of artistry! At stake, were not just one boys fate, but the fate of the whole moon and the earth and the sun and galaxy! ...May the forceps -- I mean scissors -- be with you! -- Puppeteer E3 2013 Trailer

Puppeteer, a title in development by SCE Japan Studio, has just been given a new E3 trailer, showcasing the bombastically beautiful platformer's crazy-charming art-style, environments, and game play. Puppeteer's aesthetic is somewhat reminiscent of Junction Point's Epic Mickey, with a spectacular mix of dark and whimsical elements. The game play is in the 2.5-dimensional sidescroller genre, and looks to contain tons of high-energy platforming action.

The release date for Puppeteer is scheduled for September 10th, this fall, and, as it is a Sony-published game, it will be exclusive to the PlayStation 3. Click past the jump to see Puppeteer's awesome new game play trailer!

Konami's Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, sequel to 2010's Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, received a new gameplay trailer during Konami's Pre-E3 press conference. The trailer, clocking in at a hefty six minutes and twenty seconds, features a very subdued piano number at first, and then transitions into a bombastic orchestral song for the remainder of its time. Also worth noting is that the trailer confirms that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will be the last title in the Lords of Shadow series, saying, "The epic conclusion to the Lords of Shadow saga."

Anita Sarkeesian has certainly made herself known as of late. Her second video attacking the disempowerment of women in video games has recently hit the web, and it's attracted just as much hate as it has support. Joining the fray now is the Amazing Atheist, a vlogger who primarily focuses on -- shockingly enough -- religious issues. His critique of her video centers around a few main points and isn't forgiving in the slightest; I'm a bit unsure as to whether he has valid points or is guilty of the same confirmation bias he accuses Anita of.

I'm pretty involved in the YouTube Super Smash Bros. community, and for the last few years have met a lot of speculators and discussed the next installment in the franchise till I was blue in the face. Now that we're finally getting details, several of us YouTube Smashers decided to do a series of livestreams; we did our first yesterday, discussing which characters we think are most likely to be affected by news at E3. We have a lot of fun and hopefully I'll be able to host future streams on the site itself, but for now hit the jump to listen in!

Remember Me is an exciting new IP from Dotnod Entertainment and published by Capcom that looks quite promising. Remember Me is set in "Neo-Paris" in 2084, where a large corporation by the name of Memorise has created a device that allows users to upload their memories to the internet, allowing them to indirectly establish a surveillance state and gain near total control over the world's population.

Remember Me has typically been praised for its brilliant narrative and locale, though as an action-adventure platformer, some believe that it falls a little flat. Head past the jump to see the first eleven minutes of Remember Me, thanks to CVG, and be sure to let us know what you think!

At this point, I'm sure virtually all of you have heard or read at least a bit about the controversy surrounding Microsoft's recently-revealed Xbox One. Safe to say, there are a lot of people who aren't too happy about it. From the requirement for a daily online connection to the necessity of always having Kinect hooked up for the box to function, Microsoft managed to garner quite a bit of critique after describing their new console. To be fair, there are also a number of people pointing out that we still have to wait until E3 to see most of the games that are actually going to be available on Xbox One.

Well, among Xbox One's critics are Ben Croshaw, better known as Yahtzee, the guy who does the Zero Punctuation reviews, and Jim Sterling, the host of Jimquisition. And on their cooperative show, Jim and Yahtzee's Rhymedown Spectacular, they've given us the privilege of finding out why in the form of poetry.

Head past the jump to hear Ben Croshaw and Jim Sterling recite their elegant verses regarding Xbox One.

The Xbox One conference featured an exclusive Call of Duty: Ghosts preview. The images shown touted the game's beautiful graphics and motion-capture technology, all of which were organized into a next-generation engine that uses fantastic technology to enhance the experience. A new dog is featured in the game, showing realistic facial features and movement. This is the work of the capabilities of technology in future consoles.

Activision also revealed a brand new feature in their next-generation engine that shows off the detection of AI in the game: fish will move out of the way when your character draws near. This amazing engine of the future allows for this new immersive experience, creating a realistic world unlike any other.

Wait... I've seen this before somewhere...

See the future of gaming after the jump!

Jim Sterling is back again this week to talk about publishers because, unfortunately, most of them still suck. Specifically, this week Jim takes on the all-too-common complaint that used games are among the leading issues causing the recent losses publishers have been receiving. For anyone who needs a reminder, big publishers like Square Enix and EA have had a number of high-ranking executives resigning this year due to the aforementioned losses, and THQ even ended up disbanding completely.

Jim looks over several arguments attempting to justify used games, and then, in his deliberately arrogant tone, proceeds to pummel all of them, reminding us that publishers have been using a different scapegoat every few years in their attempts to justify problems which they themselves create. The topics range from the amount of money publishers and developers receive from new game sales to the necessity for competition in any healthy industry.

Essentially, Jim is fed up with hearing publishers blame their problems on everything but themselves, and you can check out his heated ten minute speech about that after the jump.

Retro Studio's acclaimed Donkey Kong Country Returns was re-released the other day on Nintendo 3DS, and NiNTENDOMiNATiON has taken the liberty of posting a Youtube video showcasing the first 45 minutes of game play footage. Head past the jump to preview Donkey Kong's most recent romp through the jungle to chase after some banana thieves!

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, a first party Nintendo title ported to the 3DS by Monster Games, is an homage to the Donkey Kong Country games of the Super Nintendo, as well as a well-made 2.5-dimensional (3-dimensional graphics played on a 2-dimensional plane) platformer in its own right.

Remember that fantastic abridged PS4 announcement? Well, VideoGamer is at it again, this time with a brand new abridged summary of the Xbox One reveal conference.

I didn't quite enjoy this video as much as the original PS4 version, but it's still hilarious and even accurate concerning the events of the conference. Give the video a click, and stay with us as more Xbox One news continues to roll in.

As everyone should already know, the new Xbox has just been revealed as the Xbox One, with a slew of new features, prettier graphics, and better hardware. We learned that there will be restrictions on used games, mandatory Kinect integration, Windows 8, and many other features to enhance our living rooms. As more and more information spread about this new console, people started tweeting and sending messages via Facebook to Jim telling him to tear the new Xbox a new one. So in this special episode of the Jimquisition he does just that. Not because he was badgered into doing it, but because he wants to. 

Watch the video after the jump. And thank GOD for Jim. about that Xbox One reveal? What's that you say?! You missed the presentation? Well, YouTube user Darkbeatdk has been kind enough to compress the entire conference into a small 101 second video that truly gives you the overarching themes of the conference. Seriously, you get all the information you need just by watching it.

The video exposes the television capabilities of the Xbox One, while also unveiling the gameplay enhancing technology of games such as Call of Duty: Ghosts. Gamers can now get the realistic puppies they've always wanted in their games.

In case you haven't noticed yet, this video is a parody. And a damn funny one too.

Give the video a watch. It's all you'll ever need to know to understand the Xbox One... so far.
