Have you ever thought that there are just too many darn ports of Skyrim? I know I have, and I bet Bethesda has too. Heck, they made a whole trailer making fun of how many times they've released the game. But they immediately went on to make that joke trailer a reality. So are we finally done seeing Skyrim ports every year? Is Bethesda finally going to stop cashing in on their most popular title? It's hard to say for sure. But if you want the company to stop, you may not want to buy any more copies.

Now, I know what you're thinking. Konami doesn't make games anymore! I was surprised too, but apparently there's still some branch of Konami that actually develops video games that aren't for phones or pachinko machines. It's a revolutionary concept, but it just might work! Okay, but all joking aside, the company that owns Metal Gear, Silent Hill, Castlevania, and more is prepared to make a splash at E3.

E3 is just a few days away, but many developers choose to make a few big announcements early so that they don't have to share the crowded spotlight at the conference.

However, they've just revealed that there are plenty more announcements coming between now and E3, including three game reveals.

I've had a few weeks to get accustomed to the the world of virtual reality with the HTC Vive. I've had a total blast playing a ton of games in VR, and it honestly made me change the way I see games. But there's one thing about the bundle I bought that I'm not that thrilled about: Viveport.

When the first trailer for Ready Player One dropped, I was incredibly intrigued by this dystopian world where most people spent their time in a utopian virtual world. I had never read or even heard of the novel by Ernest Cline at that point, but the concept alone was interesting enough to make me pick up a copy.

After reading the book earlier this year, I concluded that Ready Player One is an incredibly entertaining and engaging story, but the characters are a little underdeveloped, the namedropping of 80s culture gets a little old at times, and the lesson learned by the main character is a glossed over and put aside by the end. Fortunately, the film adaptation from Steven Spielberg fixes a lot of the gripes I had with the novel, though it also loses some of the charm from the original.

It took me a little while, but I finally bought into the virtual reality craze. All three of the main VR headsets are sitting at more enticing prices than ever before, ranging from $299 to $499. These recent price drops were enough to get me to buy an HTC Vive.

I decided to take a look at some of the simpler games the Vive has to offer. One that immediately caught my attention was Audioshield, developed by Dylan Fitterer.

Nintendo has no announced plans to enter the virtual reality market (although they are looking into it), but that hasn't stopped fans from bringing classic Nintendo characters to devices like Oculus and Vive.
