Piracy

Pirates, you say? They must be there to spruik the new buccaneering MMO made by Rare, the company behind classic titles like Banjo-Kazooie and Perfect Dark.

Forza

Forza Horizon 3 had a typically subtle centerpiece. Just kidding. But the latest instalment in the racing franchise is introducing PC and Xbox cross-platform cooperative play to various Australian tracks. Speaking as an Australian, it looks pretty realistic.

We Happy Few

Players could try out the creepy stealth shooter (with a healthy dollop of BioShock) at E3 this year. We hope it made them happy.

The new controller isn't quite that small, but it does feature textured grips and improved wireless range.

It just wouldn't be a show floor without some public Rock Band performances.
