Absolver, a Souls-inspired martial arts game, is my biggest surprise of E3 2016

Just about every year, I get scheduled to play a particular game at E3 2016 that I didn't know anything about beforehand, which comes out of nowhere and just absolutely floors me. I'm pretty sure that this year, that game is Sloclap's Absolver. Essentially, it's a Souls-inspired Action-RPG focused on highly technical martial arts fighting — parrying, feint attacks and all — that allows you to build custom attack combos and execute them against enemy and player alike. It's slick as hell, and you can find out more about it in my impressions video, posted above.
