Four Under the Radar Games from E3 2017

by Matthew Thompson

I thought I might be a little E3’d out after writing a number of Pre-E3 posts and the one about my favorite games from the event earlier this week, but I still feel the urge to share more. Today I wanted to shine the light on a few more games that I felt went a bit under the radar compared to the seven games I talked about before. Here are some quick thoughts on four games from E3 2017 that deserve a bit more attention Continue reading
