LOS ANGELES—Even as Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony hold events to promote games on their consoles at E3, a somewhat scrappier event to promote PC games takes place: the PC Gaming Show. This year's too-long show was a barrage of trailers and brief developer talks. We basically lost count of the games, there were so many.
Battle royale? Check. Victorian steampunk settings? Check. Survival crafting games? Check. Crytek engine? Check. Lovecraft? Check. A lengthy plug for hardware from a gaming hardware company? Check. It was everything you'd expect from the PC Gaming Show.
