A funny old E3 this year, for sure. But there were still plenty of great games to get all excited about.
Here are some of our personal favourites. And apologies for anything really obvious we’ve left out.
Every year we hope for a new Advance Wars, and every year we are disappointed. Except for this year, sort of, as it’s announced that the Switch is getting a revamped version of the first two games’ campaigns. Advance Wars 1 and 2 are classics of tactical playfulness, a tanky take on Chess filled with great characters and lovely little details. The new 3D art style is a little odd, but if it’s another chance to mess around with the Pipe-runner, we’ll take it. Now the wait is on for a new Codename: STEAM. Come on.
