Capture

It’s hard to believe that two weeks have passed since our first-ever E3 Showcase. With a week to recover from our big night in Hollywood and a week’s worth of E3, let’s take a moment to check out some of the highlights from E3 week. And of course, if you’ve missed any of our E3 Showcase, don’t forget to check out our E3 2015 playlist on the Bethesda YouTube Channel.

But what about the rest of the web. If missed the official Xbox briefing, you might have missed exclusive new footage from Fallout 4. Check it out in the embed below (new stuff starts after talking with Codsworth).

On the same day, Todd also had the opportunity to participate in YouTube Gaming’s E3 Show with Geoff Keighley. Watch the interview below…

Fallout 4 was at the center of attention for many at E3 — winning Best of Show awards from multiple outlets, including:

Of course, there’s plenty else to discuss at E3, and one of the best at discussing all things Bethesda is our very own Pete Hines. He’s got some must-watch and must-read interviews, starting with his interview at Polygon that starts with “Where was Wet 2?”.

What else is worth seeing from Pete? Check out interviews with Touch Arcade (focusing on Fallout Shelter), IGN (on what makes Fallout ‘Fallout’), Telegraph, and VentureBeat.

Want more E3 coverage? We dig in — game by game — after the break.
