This year’s E3 was pretty lame. Microsoft rolled out a ton of new games for the Xbox One, Xbox One X and PC, but they didn’t have many first-party exclusives on display, especially after canceling Scalebound earlier this year. A Way Out definitely stole the show for me, though. It was a really fun looking co-op game from the developer who made Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.
Outside of the lame E3 offerings, SJWs decided to attack Tim Soret, the French developer behind the upcoming cyberpunk adventure game, The Last Night. They dug up three year old tweets and decided to wring him out over social media, and it worked. The guy apologized on stage during the PC Gaming conference at E3. These stories and more in this June 17th, 2017 edition of the Weekly Recap.
