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 -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.

June 17th, 2016 No comments

So we just had ourselves another E3. It sure was an event. With things happening.

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!

Games coming out in June 2016

May 23rd, 2016 No comments

I posted a bit more than usual in the last month (and there’s an upcoming review for Platinum’s TMNT game which should hopefully pop up before the end of the month), so that’s good. Not sure I can keep that up, unless I actually decide to post that big ass rant I’ve been writing for over a year (which I’d HAVE to post in multiple parts because right now it takes 25 pages in Word). We’ll see. And I figured I’d post this while waiting for Overwatch to come out today.

So June is fun, it’s E3 time and hopefully it’ll be a good one. As for game releases… There’s a few. June is giving us: 1 3DS game, 2 Wii U games, 15 multiplats and 2 PS4 releases.

Usual disclaimer: This includes either games I’m interested in, games that may be/become popular and random stuff in-between… Basically anything I feel bears mentioning. Might be missing stuff because game companies right now are shit about announcing release dates nowadays.

E3 2016: Pre-E3 hopes and expectations

May 3rd, 2016 No comments

So we’re getting to E3 time pretty soon. Game announcements, hype, and disappointment all over the place from all of those present. I know I’m early on this, but there’s a very good reason… Okay, first reason is just because I wrote all this already and don’t want to sit on it for too long like another post I’ve been writing for, like, 2 years (I’ll have it out soon I swear), but more specifically, we’re just a bit before E3 rumors start blasting us in the face so I want to talk a bit before that happens. I don’t care if some of what I wrote ends up being invalidated before E3, whatever. I doubt most of it will.

So here I want to talk specifically about the live-streamed press events, since that’s what the general public actually sees of E3. These are my hopes and expectations for the companies that are having press conferences this year (and one that might not).

Note: When E3 conferences start I’ll post my impressions of each press conference. This is just my thoughts before any kind of really big E3 hype starts settling in.

3DS – E3 Hands-On

July 9th, 2010 No comments

The Nintendo DS has proven, through its multiple versions to be a solid product in terms of marketing and mass appeal. Nintendo was ready at this year’s E3 to let part of the public get their hands on the next iteration of their portable gaming system, the Nintendo 3DS.

I’ve had the chance to try it after waiting a relatively short time (about 25 minutes in line) and I’ve got good things and bad things to say about it.
