E3 2017 – Final thoughts

June 16th, 2017 No comments

E3 2017 is done. It was pretty bad, especially after having time to sleep on it and think about what was shown.

I already wrote about the specific presentations in a “live commentary” style (semi-live when it comes to Bethesda), look at my previous posts for that. This is more about the entirety of the online experience of E3 2017 (not really sure why people rushed out to get tickets to actually go there and wait in lines), and other ranty notes.

Let’s go!

E3 2017 impressions – Day 1: Nintendo

June 13th, 2017 No comments

So right now as I’m writing this intro we haven’t seen Nintendo’s Spotlight presentation, or the Treehouse stream. And what I’m currently saying is… Nintendo just has to show up and, whatever “winning E3” means, they’ll do it. It’s a pretty sad year when Ubisoft and MS had the best presentations so far.

Today: Nintendo’s showcase presentation, as well as a bit of the Treehouse stream since there’s apparently more announcements there.

Let’s go and talk about this! This is my second to last E3 post, next will be in a couple days with an overall impression of this E3 as a whole.

E3 2017 impressions – Day -1: Sony

June 12th, 2017 No comments

My PS4 was actually turned on a few times this year, so that’s an improvement over last year. Sony needs to keep that up though. And there’s a distinct chance they could, but for that they need to go all-out at E3. Let’s see!

Second post today: Sony’s E3 Presentation.

Let’s hope it’s good and not just Knack 2.

Nintendo post tomorrow.

E3 2017 impressions – Day -1: Ubisoft

June 12th, 2017 No comments

Since my “expectations” post we did get some new info, specifically about Far Cry 5 (see: not Blood Dragon 2 so who cares) and a leak for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle (I expect it here rather than Nintendo’s Spotlight presentation (with a segment for it at the treehouse stream later)), so hey, there might be something worth mentioning here… I expect nothing new other than Mario + Rabbids.

First post today: Ubisoft’s E3 Presentation

I assume that right now we need to get ready for a really bad dance number first… let’s see.

E3 2017 impressions – Day -2: Bethesda

June 12th, 2017 No comments

Okay you Bethesda fuckers… fuck you. People work on Monday, you get that, right? Why would you have this kind of presentation at MIDNIGHT (I know Europe usually gets fucked as far as these go, but not usually east coast US)? Fuck that I’m not watching this live. Thankfully I can still make semi-live reactions the morning after before going to work. Which is what I’m doing right now… Let’s watch this shit.

Day -2 part 2: Bethesda’s E3 Conference. Again these are “live impressions” (I avoided spoilers before watching after the fact). Yes we’re technically on Day -1 now but it’s a Day -2 presentation so whatever 😛

Let’s go! Get hyped for lots of DLC announcement probably.

(2 more posts laters today!)

E3 2017 impressions – Day -2: Microsoft

June 11th, 2017 No comments

Alright, so Day -3 was kinda lame with EA, but we’re done with that and it’s Day -2 now. Microsoft is usually one of the bigger ones, but they tend to not really announce much of note either.

So today’s semilive commentary: Microsoft’s E3 presentation. That is live but then edited to make sure it’s readable.

I was gonna post Bethesda at the same time tonight, but I work tomorrow and Bethesda delayed their presentation to midnight on the east coast (it was previously a couple hours earlier), so I’ll wake up early tomorrow and do a “slightly less live” impressions for that then and post it before going to work.

E3 2017 impressions – Day -3: EA

June 11th, 2017 No comments

So it begins. Another year, another E3, another set of posts featuring me complaining about everything.

The idea for the next few posts is that I’ll take notes and write impressions during the E3 presentations, and post those straight up, with “overall impressions” at the end (but still written as the presentation is winding down, to keep it “live”). I will edit my notes and impressions to make them… readable… but these ARE live impressions. I’ll have more in-depth impressions about the show later on.

Today: Day -3 featuring EA’s presentation

(forgot to hit publish yesterday, oops)

E3 2017 Expectations

May 12th, 2017 No comments

We are a month off from E3. E3 is a big time for gamers, while simultaneously not being much of anything at the end of it. We expect big announcements and stuff, and usually what we end up getting is “in a year or 2 or 5 you’ll be able to play this!” sort of announcements. I usually turn out not too excited after E3 is done, even though I REALLY enjoy watching everything that comes out of it every year. I watch all the conferences (usually twice since I post about them afterwards), I watch all the trailers that weren’t shown at the conferences, several streams showing stuff on the floor… I’m an E3-holic.

I want to write this now rather than later, because if I wait rumors will pop up and this kind of post won’t mean much. “Hey there’s these rumors so that will be my predictions lol”. Wow much insight and thought. Instead of just naming random shit and calling them predictions, I’ll talk about my overall expectations for each of the presentations.

So yeah, let’s talk about everyone having a presentation there at least. I’m not gonna try to guess what EVERY company will show.

E3 2016 Day 1 and 2 impressions – Nintendo

June 15th, 2016 No comments

Alright so my second to last E3 post, and fully focused on Nintendo because not much public-facing stuff really happened otherwise.

So these are impressions I wrote as I was watching their 2 days of presentations. Slightly edited to make them somewhat postable.

Let’s go!
