What to expect from E3’s PC Gaming Show

The inaugural PC Gaming Show was perhaps the single most excruciating event to be broadcast live from last year's E3. With events like BlizzCon and E3 itself garnering more attention for properties like World of Warcraft, we expect Blizzard will take a similar approach to the PC Gaming Show this year. Cloud Imperium will not be participating in the PC Gaming Show despite agreeing several months ago to do so. TaleWorlds Entertainment Those who've followed PC gaming over the last decade will no do

Hands on with Civilization 6 … as the Emperor of China

Me being the Emperor of China and her being the Pharaoh of that one other notable civilization, Egypt, I just assumed we'd get on famously. Barbarians are tough in early Civ 6. I resolved to win back the admiration of my darling neighbor by creating quite a few early military units.
