Digital Trends Live: Florida’s autonomous vehicle law, E3 updates, and more

On today’s episode of Digital Trends Live, host Greg Nibler and DT Senior Writer Parker Hall discuss the biggest tech news of the day, including Florida allowing fully autonomous vehicles on the road, Atari’s new gaming system, more updates from E3, the future of high-speed rail, and our weekly Tech Briefs segment.

DT correspondent Riley Winn once again joins us from E3, where he catches up with streamer DomPlays to ask him what he’s most excited for at E3, as well as how he got into streaming horror video games. DomPlays is represented by Fullscreen.

Alex Garden, chief executive officer and chairman of Zume, discusses the future of food processing and delivery, and how data is used to better match food production with demand.

Nibler then welcomes Paul Waby, rail systems director at Texas Central, to help break down high-speed rail technology, and what the future of the industry looks like, from Maglev to steel wheel.

It’s Friday, which means it’s time for another Tech Briefs segment, where we round up this week’s biggest tech stories with Ken Yeung, technology editor at Flipboard.

Nibler then interviews Scott Wharton, vice president and general manager of the Video Collaboration Group at Logitech, about employees in open offices, and an approach to product development that meets employees’ collaborative and individual needs.

The biggest games we didn’t see at E3 2021: Hellblade, Splinter Cell, and more
Sam Fisher's iconic goggles.

With the E3 2021 extravaganza rapidly coming to a close, it's time to reflect on the ways in which our hopes were dashed. There are already a ton of lists out there that recap everything presented at the show, but what about the games we didn't see?

With big players like Sony and EA skipping this year’s show, it was inevitable that there were going to be plenty of MIA games. Outside of the usual suspects, there was a slew of games we desperately wanted to see but that just didn’t make the cut. Regardless of whether these games (and one console) are stuck in development hell, delayed because of COVID-19, don’t actually exist, or are just waiting for a different day in the sun, here is a list of some of the biggest missing names from E3 2021.

Every game announcement from Nintendo’s E3 2021 Direct
Key art for Metroid Dread on Switch.

Heading into the final day of E3 2021, there was a common sentiment going around social media: It was up to Nintendo to "save" this year's show. That was no easy task. E3 has largely been underwhelming this year outside of Microsoft's mega-showcase. Placing all of one's hopes and dreams on a company that often delivers uneven digital showcases felt like a recipe for disappointment. No matter how much Nintendo tried to set expectations in advance, fans were already setting themselves up for failure the night before as Mario Kart 9 trended on Twitter.

Against all odds, Nintendo delivered. The company put on its best Direct showcase in years with tons of surprises. Breath of the Wild 2 was the big reveal, but it was far from the most exciting announcement. Metroid Dread was a genuine shock, bringing a new original 2D Metroid to the Switch. We saw new a Wario Ware, Mario Party, Advance Wars, and way more. It was a mile-a-minute show, so here are all the biggest announcements.
