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).
