Given all the gaming and tech news we’re likely going to get in the next few days, I think it is a good idea if we consolidate all of that into one discussion thread so not to clutter observation deck. Also if it is alright with crashedpc /sarcasm, I’d like to bump this up just before each conference begins.
So how is everybody opinion of E3 so far? I watched the Bethesda conference last night and I’m currently wait for the others. Partially to see the new games, but also I have a drinking game to see if can spot the meaningless marketing jargon and BS (don’t think I’ll manage getting through the EA conference).
Opinions so far:
- DOOM: Not sure about the game. I liked the executions and the over the top violence. But I felt the game looked too generic with its demons and environments. Hell especially looked rather dull. I also think there should be more demons on screen and the music should be turned up.
- Fallout 4: Overall, I enjoyed what I saw though personally I think the graphics could be better and I’m not quite sure if the prologue with your family was a good idea (I wonder if they will allow you to choose a same sex marriage). I liked the town making system, the new crafting system and I liked how the game was more colourful, something that I felt was a problem with 3.
Microsoft (written while the show was running)
- Halo looks the same except with Anti-Spirals in it. Alright.
- To quite Nicole:
“ Ooooooh Recore looks interesting in concept! Playing a girl and her robutt buddies sounds great! Gameplay video and detail please.”
- Great work in getting backward compatibility on the console, hope PS4 does this in the future.
- Wait I thought they were only doing 1 demo for Fallout 4 this E3? Did I mishear last night?
- Wait so can mods work on the PS4 version of Fallout 4 as well or has Microsoft payed them off to not allow that?
- What’s with E3 conferences and bringing Sport cars?
- Surprised by the little fanfare for Dark Souls 3.
- Gigantic looks fun though I’ll wait for more info.
- Disappointed to find out that Cuphead is an Xb0x exclusive :(
- It seems that Xbox is being smarter with their early access then steam has.
- For the DayZ Creators new game:
- Thank god Rise of the Tomb Raider is only a temp Xbox exclusive. Loved the first one in the reboot series.
- My god! They’ve made the holodeck! Though I’m still not convinced that VR is the future, seems very inconvenient and gimmicky.
- Wait isn’t this the fifth Gears of War game?
- Mass Effect Andromeda for the little we saw of it looked alright. I feel they regret the ending of the third one so they’re making sure they have to deal with it consequences as little as possible.
- Knights of the Fallen Empire looked cool for fans of that series.
- Zombie Superheroes!
- Yay! More pay to win crap.
- They are adding women into FIFA, good progress and surprised it wasn’t already in the game.
- Loved the first one so will likely pick up Mirrors Edge Catalyst.
- The Twitch went down and just before Battlefront :(
- I’m betting like last time, South Park will be censored in Europe again.
- At the Division at this point and nothing has thrilled me yet. For Honer looked generic, I don’t care about the Crew and I’m meh on South Park.
- I’m sorry to say that this was the weakest conference so far but that maybe because I don’t care for some of the franchises like Ghost Recon, The Crew and Rainbow Six. I don’t hate them, they just don’t appeal to me.
- Great to see the last guardian but I am weary of it given how many games that have gone through years of being vapor-ware are finally released and are crap like Aliens Colonial Marines and Duke Nuken Forever.
- Horizon looks good, a serious take on adventure time essentially. Worth looking into.
- What’s with the new trend of games just calling the new sequels the orignal title.
- I liked how the two character they revealed for SS5 are Brits.
- Dream looks very interesting as well, would like to know more about that.
- My god! It looks so World of Final Fantasy XV looks so cute!
- Final Fantasy VII getting remade... Meh.
- Shenmue III Kickstarter? Why doesn’t SONY just fund it?
- How the hell did I completely forget about Arkham Knight!!!
- I think something is wrong with the Uncharted demo.
- Zelda Triforce Heroes looks cute.
- Honestly, very disappointing.
- Why did they show the Final Fantasy VII trailer again?
- Those two Kingdom Heart games look decent. Also, was that Mathew Broderick in the trailer doing the voice?
- A new Nier, that sounds awesome but I feel they shouldn’t of announce it yet given that it’s incredibly early in production.
- Again World of Final Fantasy looks so cute :)
