Top 10 Most Viewed Forum Threads

The most watched on Armor Games is “Count to 100”, but with the amount of refreshing that goes on in that thread it should be no surprise. Sometimes the numbers move too fast for everyone to keep up and that’s where the fun lies. 😉

Armor Games @ E3 2014

The Armor Games team packed into the car on Tuesday and headed off to a visit E3 2014 in Los Angeles. We’d have loved to take everybody with us, but since our car only fits four people we’ve decided to snap some pictures for you guys instead. There were some outstanding games on the floor this year, and it was a blast getting to see them. Remember, if you ever see one of us in green be sure to say hello!

What game has you most excited from E3 2014?
