Logitech’s whole Powerplay mouse pad wirelessly charges its gaming mice

If gamers have been the long-standing wireless peripheral hold-outs, then Logitech thinks it finally has the answer to cutting the cord. Four years in the making, the Logitech G Powerplay system is the mouse and keyboard maker's foray into its own wireless charging system. Rather than go for one of the off-the-shelf approaches already in the wild, Logitech developed its own suited to the demanding requirements of the PC gaming community.

SlashGear’s E3 2017 Wishlist

SlashGear’s E3 2017 Wishlist

E3 2017 is right around the corner, and so far there hasn't been very much indication of what we'll see there. Obviously, we know what companies like Microsoft and Nintendo will talking about in a general sense, but we'll have to wait for specifics until the show is finally here. With that in mind, I've put together a wishlist of some things I'd like to see at the show. Keep in mind that this isn't necessarily a list of what's likely, just stuff that I'd like see announced. Therefore, don't take this as something of an E3 checklist; I'm just letting my dreams run wild here.

Nintendo unleashes Switch and Super Mario E3 plans

Though Nintendo has previously announced that it won't holding an on-site press conference at E3, it appears the company still has a lot planned for the show. Today Nintendo unveiled its E3 schedule, and it consists of two major live streams that will cover both the Switch and the 3DS.

E3 2017 will offer tickets to the public – here’s how to get them

The organizers behind E3 have announced that they will offer 15,000 tickets to the public for this year's show. This is a pretty big announcement, because traditionally, E3 has only been open to games companies and the media. While tickets have been handed out to members of the public in the past, this is the first time that regular consumers have had the chance to buy them directly.

Nintendo NX E3 no-show explained by Shigeru Miyamoto

Nintendo NX E3 no-show explained by Shigeru Miyamoto

Fans hoping to catch a glimpse of Nintendo's upcoming console at E3 earlier this month walked away severely disappointed. The console - codenamed the "NX" - was nowhere in sight despite an expected launch date sometime in March 2017, months before the next E3, and thus months before one of the best opportunities to show the hardware to the world. It turns out there's a reason for the absence of the NX, and it may not be what you think it is.

Titanfall 2 : “life-sized model behind the scenes” Boogaloo

Titanfall 2 : “life-sized model behind the scenes” Boogaloo

We've gone up close and personal with the folks that make the full-sized Titans for the game Titanfall 2 for events like E3 2016. Today we've got a collection of photos of the making-of process, showing what these mechs are made of. As it was the last time we brought you inside the cockpit, so to speak, these Titans are made mostly of high quality foam. Also involved, of course, is a bunch of skillfully applied paint - and metal too.

Final Fantasy 15’s E3 demo highlights frame-rate improvements on Xbox One

Final Fantasy 15’s E3 demo highlights frame-rate improvements on Xbox One

When the Final Fantasy 15 Platinum Demo was released back in April on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, one of the notable differences was that the latter platform's version suffered from performance issued and significant drops in frame-rate. Eurogamer's Digital Foundry, in one of their deep-dive technical analysis, has found that the playable demo offered at E3 last week showed a number of improvements on Microsoft's console, offering a positive outlook for Final Fantasy 15's September 30th release.

Dead Rising 4 will be Xbox One, Windows 10 exclusive for first year

One of Microsoft's bigger exclusives announced during its E3 presentation this week was Dead Rising 4, the latest in the zombie-surviving action series. The game is due for release on Xbox One and Windows 10 this fall, but will be exclusive to those platforms for one year, developer Capcom says. This is a bit of a surprise, as the Dead Rising series has a history of being limited to Microsoft's platforms.

Ever Oasis is Nintendo’s new RPG for the 3DS

Ever Oasis is Nintendo’s new RPG for the 3DS

Nintendo made it clear this year that it would only be at E3 2016 in limited capacity, offering looks at the new Legend of Zelda and Pokemon games. But the Japanese game giant still had a surprise for us, revealing a brand-new RPG title for the Nintendo 3DS. The game is called Ever Oasis, and it comes from developer Grezzo — which was responsible for the Zelda remakes of Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask — with Koichi Ishii (who worked on the first three Final Fantasy games and SNES classic Secret of Mana) directing.

You can play Titanfall 2 “Beta” sooner than October

You can play Titanfall 2 “Beta” sooner than October

The release of Titanfall 2 will take place on the 28th of October, 2016. Before then, the folks at Respawn Entertainment and EA Games are launching the same sort of test they launched before the full drop of the game (the original Titanfall). That is a sort of Beta test, as you might want to call it, more properly termed a "Multiplayer Technical Test." While the final game will have a single-player mode in addition to the multiplayer mode Titanfall is known for, this will be a stress test of sorts - testing out the weight before the weight drops.

Resident Evil 7 biohazard hits PS4, Xbox One and PC on January 24

Capcom has been teasing fans over Resident Evil 7 since this past October, with the most definite tip seeming to come last month in the company's financial statement, which suggested we'd see something big in the Resident Evil franchise by March 2017. As it turns out, we won't have to wait that long -- at E3 this week, Capcom took the wraps off Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, and it'll be arriving on PlayStation, Xbox One and PC this upcoming January 24.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild still has a male Link

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild still has a male Link

With a title that goes "Breath of the Wild", some might easily associate it with the phrase "breath of fresh air." In some cases, the game might indeed offer that, breaking from some of the established conventions and limits of previous Zelda games. Unfortunately, the Wii U title still doesn't break free from one of the things that has had fans and even outsiders debating endlessly. That means this Legend of Zelda still doesn't have a female Link as rumored or, at the very least, even a female protagonist.
