Issue #28: The Element of Surprise! – July/August 2017

$0.99$24.99

How about that E3 2017, huh? Were you as shocked and surprised as we were? It was incredible to see the power that simply putting the number “4” on the screen can have!

We didn’t know exactly which surprises would be revealed in Los Angeles that week, but we knew that E3 could be counted on to bring at least a few out-of-nowhere unveilings. So we planned ahead and made the theme of this issue be “The Element of Surprise!” Within its pages we walk back over the history of big Nintendo surprise reveals and see how E3 2017’s announcements stack up against them.

We also hold a debate on spoilers, interview popular YouTuber Arlo to get his perspective on being a spoilerphobe and also shine the spotlight on Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, which is our cover game for this edition. It was meant to be a surprise reveal at E3 2017 too, but Ubisoft sprung about a million leaks over the eight months preceding the Expo, so we knew quite a bit about the game before its official unveiling! That’s all part of surprise culture in the gaming industry, though, so it’s part of the discussion here.
