Rainbow Six Siege is the intense, punishing instalment in the franchise that it so desperately needs to bring it back to the forefront alongside some of the best team first person shooter titles out there. The games, fondly remembered for how damn difficult they were, lay on the precipice of being forgotten about altogether following the empty announcement of Rainbow Six Patriots three years ago.
Don’t worry though – your prayers have been answered.
Okay, so Electronic Arts haven’t had too much real stuff to showcase at the biggest gaming convention of the year, and that’s fine because all their games look really nice and I’m sure they’ll all be lovely when they’re finished.

Video gaming is a lot of things to a lot of different people. For some it offers the chance to kick back and relax, for others it offers the chance for heroic escapism. But what if you couldn’t enjoy games the way that your friends could? What if that option wasn’t available to you?
That’s where the charity Special Effect come in.
Nintendo have released a statement addressing an issue concerning one of their games – Tomodachi Life – in that players are unable to form same-sex relationships with other players. Rather than making plans to change the game, due for release on June 6th, the company have decided not to make alterations, and have asserted that they “never intended to make any form of social commentary with the launch of Tomodachi Life.”
Unfortunately, they must realise that they already have.
