Who won E3 2017?

Company Games

5 comments By Che

Last week was an exciting week for gamers. The annual Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3 for short) was held in Los Angeles. The entire gaming industry, including Alex from Mighty Ape HQ (lucky monkey!), descended upon LA for a week to showcase their new games, consoles and gaming products.

The expo officially took place from Wednesday to Friday at the Los Angeles Convention Center but the excitement started a few days earlier when the big games companies held their press conferences. The press conferences were full of big announcements and surprises about what we can expect to be playing in the next few years. They started with EA's conference on Sunday, June 11, and ended with the Nintendo Spotlight at an eye-watering 4am (NZT) on Wednesday.

With the close of E3 comes the inevitable question. Who won E3? We will attempt to answer that question for you today.

IGN awarded the IGN Game of Show Award for E3 2017 to Super Mario Odyssey which is coming to Nintendo Switch on October 27th. Let's see if we come to the same conclusion.

Which Hogwarts House is the most popular in NZ?

Books

Add a comment By Che

It's been 20 years since Harry Potter entered the imagination of children (and the young at heart). It all started with J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone which was first published by Bloomsbury Publishing on 26 June 1997 in the UK. We've since sold over 40,000 Harry Potter products here at Mighty Ape!

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the book that started a cultural phenomenon Bloomsbury have just released four House Editions of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Sto­ne. These stunning editions each feature the individual House crest on the jacket, and line illustrations exclusive to that House, by Kate Greenaway Medal winner Levi Pinfold. Each book contains extra content including fact files and profiles of popular characters. The edges of each book have also been sprayed in the House colours, and are available in both hardback and paperback formats.

Fans can now choose the book that represents the House that they pledge allegiance to. Every Harry Potter fan has an opinion on which is the best House and could debate it for hours on end. Blogger Ani Bundel from WizardsandWhat­not.com recently ranked the Houses from best to worst as follows.

House ranks by WizardsandWhat­not.com:

  1. Gryffindor
  2. Hufflepuff
  3. Ravenclaw
  4. Slytherin

It's no surprise to see Gryffindor at the top of her list, and Slytherin at the bottom. However, despite their terrible reputation, we don't have any problem selling Slytherin merchandise at Mighty Ape. They may be looked upon by many unfavourably, but does that mean that they are the least popular? Which raises the question, which Hogwarts House is the most popular?
