Simpson's Tapped Out adds waterfront property

Another bit of gaming goodness out of E3 was a fresh content patch for The Simpson's Tapped Out. The Waterfront update introduces a whole new range of buildings, decorations, quests, and characters. There are 30 new plots of land, so players can expand their own little versions of Springfield, and a new boardwalk section allows them to build out onto the water.

The game features the original cast of the show doing voiceovers for the characters, and an all new 'interactive adventure' storyline. So, how does it stack up?

Gameplay video of Plants vs. Zombies 2

Plants vs. Zombies 2 was announced not long ago, and we got to spend some time playing it here at E3. You'll find a lot of the same strategy game elements as the original, but there's a ton of added depth on multiple fronts. One of them is plant food, which can be collected by dropped particular kinds of zombies. That plant food can be used to temporarily super-charge an individual plant - perfect for those tense moments when your well-laid plans crumble before your eyes.

As it turns out, Gameloft's Modern Combat 5 is just as gorgeous as its teaser trailer last week would have us believe. We got our thumbs on an early build at E3, and though the action is very reminiscent of the previous modern military shooter games in the franchise, the graphics are above and beyond.

The Division is a standard duck-and-cover action game for next-gen consoles with lots of gadgets, skills, progression, and persistent open world player-versus-player, but what's really interesting to us is the mobile element. Players on unnamed tablets will be able to join in the fun as a drone, offering tactical support by way of surveillance, healing, and providing other bonuses.
