Deep Silver has confirmed that many of its anticipated games will be missing from this year’s E3 show. These include sequels to its popular Dead Island, Saints Row, Metro, and TimeSplitters franchises. E3’s Summer Game Fest schedule also suggests that WB Games will only be focused on cooperative shooter Back 4 Blood, so news on Suicide Squad, Gotham Knights, and Hogwarts Legacy seems unlikely.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
