Whether action adventure is the correct genre name for the new Star Trek game from Digital Extremes remains to be seen. What we got to see at E3 was difficult in the direction of shooters. But one after anonther. The plot of the game, which is very memorable, is between the last film by J.J.
With Naughty Dogs new game, many players probably expect nothing more than a new Uncharted with a new hero and setting. Completely wrong, as we can say after a rather extensive study of The Last of Us at E3!

Like every year, the battle between Pro Evolution Soccer and FIFA has flared up again.
