Let's be honest here -- a title like this doesn't need much of an introduction. It's World of Tanks. It's in the world… and there are tanks. That's about enough for me, but just in case you needed to know anything else, we got together with Victor Kislyi, CEO at Wargaming.net, to get a little more informed. Topics of interest included his mention of the MMO's 15 vs. 15 pvp battles, the player garage that can hold up to 200 tanks, and the fact that you'll be tasked with leveling up both your tanks and your crew members. Get even more informed with the interview below:

The Hidden Indie Gems of E3 2011

Lights flashing, people running into each other, the floor shaking with the rumbling bass from twenty different booths; E3 is best described as a dozen rock concerts going on at once. Giant marquees and statues for all the big games appear nearly everywhere you turn. You can probably guess that a game with little fanfare on a single screen would require quite a bit of hunting to find.

So at this year's E3, I went on the hunt to find the best indie titles. A couple of them were only playable on one screen behind a booth which was often hidden by a bigger booth. But, I was able to complete my quest. A big special thanks to IndieCade for having such a great presence at the show! Here are just a few of the hidden treasures I found in my search for the best indie games at E3.

NeverDead is developer Rebellion's crazy, twisted nightmare of fantasy violence. But we've played all that before, I hear you say. And you're right. But what you haven't played is a game where the character is legitimately immortal. Even if protagonist Bryce should happen to lose his head (pun!) or fall to pieces (pun pun!) he'll always get back up to continue his crusade against the demon hordes. Now, why he's immortal and why he's fighting these monsters is another matter entirely. Jake Gaskill got a chance to try the game at E3 2011, and thankfully he can shed some light on this mysterious man:

"NeverDead tells the story of a tragically immortal alcoholic named Bryce Boltzmann who has been forced to live with the loss of his family for over 500 years, and who is now on the hunt for redemption and demon asses to cap. Of course, none of this backstory was presented during my hands-on time with the game during E3. My time with the game was about one thing and one thing only: bizarre and, at times, frustrating showdowns with numerous demonic forces."

NeverDead is shaping up to be one of the most intriguing titles we've seen as of late, and I for one am excited to see how Rebellion will pull off this high concept title. If you've ever wanted to just sort of let yourself go (less obvious pun!) make sure to check out our full NeverDead E3 2011 preview!

If you're into classic PC gaming, then we've got some good news for you. GOG.com, the "classic games digital distributor" offers "games ranging from all the way back to 1984, and  "fairly recent titles -- a selection that includes both the first Zork and The Witcher 2. If those two aren't your thing, fear not: they've got over 350 titles in the catalog, they're all DRM free, and (with the exception ofThe Witcher 2) every title is either $5.99 or $9.99. They've also partnered with EA and have already added games from the Wing Commander, Ultima, and Dungeon Keeper series. Rest assured that "whatever it is that you enjoy about PC gaming, GOG has something for you." Check out more in the video below.

X-Play's Morgan Webb had a chance at E3 2011 to sit down with BioWare founders Greg Zeschuk and Ray Muzyka to talk games, schedules and fan service. The studio's big showings, Star Wars: The Old Republic and Mass Effect 3, had us clamoring for more, but we wanted to ask the men themselves what their experiences were like at the show. From fan input on SWTOR to investor meetings, interviews to press conferences, these two really had to put their game faces on. Pun intended.

Check out the video below to see what E3 2011 was like from the perspective of two legendary personas:

Excited for SWTOR or ME3? BioWare fan? Or maybe interested in the doctors-turned-gamers success story of the two founders? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Silent Hill: Downpour Official Title Of The Next Silent Hill

Silent Hill: Downpour by Czech developer Vatra is easily one of the greatest mind-twisters wracking players' brains. Huge fans of the series are looking forward to it with eager anticipation. Horror fans are excited to dim the lights and let themselves get spooked. And lastly, those who played Silent Hill: Homecoming and found it lacking are slow to trust. So yeah, Vatra has quite the checklist to complete by the time Downpour hits shelves. Thankfully, our own Jake Gaskill got some time with the title at E3 2011, and his impressions ought to soothe:

"Vatra has made it a point to deliver a Silent Hill experience that is quintessential Silent Hill (i.e. a slower paced survival-horror experience, plenty of nightmarish creatures, psychological screwiness, etc.) with some much appreciated improvements to the presentation and the controls. We didn’t get to see any combat, so I can’t really speak to how that aspect is coming along, but the exploration and minimal actions we did perform, like breaking locks to opens doors using a fire extinguisher, went smoothly.

There’s also plenty of gorgeous lighting and environmental effects on display, with moonbeams cutting through thick fog and shadows creeping long and low along the abandoned streets. Atmosphere is one of Silent Hill’s most revered elements, and even from the little bit of the game that we saw, it’s clear that Vatra has put a lot of effort towards keeping this tradition alive."

With an emphasis on atmosphere and psychological horror, Vatra seems to be staying true to the series' staples that made it such a classic. And being slightly terrified of open water myself, I'm not expecting to come out of things in a healthy state of mind. But if our full Silent Hill: Downpour E3 preview is any indication, I might have a really great time in my descent into insanity. Check it out yourself and let us know what you think!

At E3 2011 last week, X-Play's Morgan Webb sat down with Blizzard's executive vice president of Game Design, Rob Pardo, and the two mixed it up about the birth and evolution of World of Warcraft, why Starcraft 2 is so awesome, the growth of Blizzcon, and how Blizzard manages to get along with their corporate partners at Activision.

Anarchy Reigns, New Third-Person Brawler Announced By SEGA

Anarchy Reigns is the next big thing from Platinum Studios, the guys who brought you Bayonetta and Vanquish. Looking to tweak and alter the way we think about brawling fighters, the studio is throwing players into a frenzy of action and beat-em-up violence. Jeffrey Matulef checked the game out at E3, and his impressions are ready to lay the smackdown.

"It should come as no surprise that a game with Anarchy in the title would be confusing. Anarchy Reigns stars Madworld's protagonist Jack Cayman, along with other Madworld alum including: Leo, The Black Baron, and Big Bull, yet the game doesn't take place in the same universe as Platinum's black & white brawler. Even stranger, it's a third person competitive multiplayer hack-n-slash, a genre that I'm pretty sure doesn't exist. It's breaking all the rules..."

For my money, the game looks to be a mix of Power Stone and Spawn: In The Demon's Hand for the Dreamcast, but maybe I'm just saying that out of nostalgia. If you think I'm wrong or want to check out more Anarchy Reigns for yourself, be sure to read the full Anarchy Reigns E3 2011 preview!

Somewhere "off the coast of Canada," the zombies are coming. Jaime Bencia, Producer from Konami, tells us a little bit about Zombie Apocalypse 2. Fans of the original can expect a more robust story, a 4 player team squad mode, character-specific weapons and special abilities, and the return of the teddy bear from the first Zombie Apocalypse. They can also look forward to the humorous writing talents of the crew from Pure Pwnage -- and Jeremy is starring as the main character.

House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut takes what everyone loves - zombies! - and gives us more, more, more. More guns, more levels, more monsters. Evil scientist lords willing, it'll also give us more grindhouse theater-style acting and presentation, two staples which made the Wii original so deliciously campy. PlayStation 3 Move owners, let's lock and load as SEGA senior localization producer Jason Kuo preps us for a descent into gory sweetness:
