E3 2016 Overall Thoughts

June 17th, 2016 No comments

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

I wrote impressions for the presentations, I think I was pretty clear about what I thought. So let’s just go.

E3 2016 Day 0 impressions: Microsoft, Ubisoft and Sony

June 13th, 2016 No comments

Day -1 was a bust. Maybe the biggest day for non-attendees will be better. Here’s my impressions of Day 0.

My impressions were written live (with some editing to make said impressions postable). I mostly ignored the PC Gaming Show because it was… barely a thing. Whatever. The new AMD stuff was cool, nothing else of note there.

And in 2 days I’ll have a post about Nintendo, and a post about E3 as a whole (hopefully more non-conference stuff pops up).

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.

E3 2015 rant!

June 17th, 2015 No comments

Alright, E3 time! And you know what that means! Yes, it’s time once again for me to angrily hate on everything that was shown at all the big presentations (alright, I wrote this part before the conference, I do quite the opposite if you skip to the end here). This includes Microsoft, Sony, EA, Ubisoft, Bethesda, Nintendo, Square Enix and “PC Gaming”, whatever and whoever that is.

My E3 hype-level before the presentations wasn’t really high. I had low expectations for every company doing a presentation. Sony, Microsoft, EA and Ubisoft always disappoint, Nintendo is very hit-or-miss, and I ran under the assumption that Square Enix wasn’t gonna be all that interesting, and that Bethesda would just be happy to have shown up at all.

I previously had “reactions” written down for everything in all the presentations for his post, but that was WAY too long, so I figured I’d reduce the length by a lot.

So let’s go, here’s my E3 conference thoughts! A quick intro for each presentation (wrote those before seeing the conferences), and a quick summary of my thoughts for each of the conferences with highlights and lowlights for each of them.

The Last of Us Remastered review

June 7th, 2015 No comments

The Snore of Us
So people have been freaking the hell out about this “Last of Us” game. It got GotY award after GotY award, and people are just going crazy about how good it is. But everything I saw seemed to show a really subpar, average game with nothing really special to it. Like, Uncharted (see: not a great series) with more limited ammo. It just sounded like overrated trash to me.

I figured I’d check it out if I could find it cheap. Then the remaster was announced, so I decided to keep waiting until the remaster would be cheap. And I did, when I managed to find it for 12$.

So is this overrated trash as I thought it would be, or is it a very surprising gem? Read on and see!

Games coming out in June 2015 + E3 HYPE

May 28th, 2015 No comments

Got a few posts in the last month, that’s nice. I hope to get more though. I’m preparing a review for a game I’ve spoken shit about before without having played it, The Last of Us, and probably other things too if I can get to playing handheld games more. If all goes well that a review for that Puzzle & Dragon thing will come soon, and so will Splatoon.

So June… Not much to really speak of but there’s some cool things. Let’s see… 1 Vita release, 4 multiplats, 1 PS4 release and 3 PC releases. Another small month which is a getting rather disappointing. But there’s one big thing in June, and that’s the E3 hype machine!

Usual disclaimer: Those include either games I’m interested in and games that may be/become popular and random stuff in-between… Basically anything I feel bears mentioning, whether I’m personally hyped for it or not.

June 15th, 2014 No comments

Alright, so we just had ourselves an E3. This should be the most exciting time of the year for gamers, with tons of game reveals and news ad release dates and stuff, it’s basically gonna be awesome. E3 2014 was an oddly mixed bag, In general it was uncharacteristically bad, but there were some cool things in there.

I’ve had time to think about E3 2014 and the conferences within. And I can now do a nice opinion piece about it! So let’s dive in!

7th Generation Send-off: Badass handheld games

November 6th, 2013 No comments

Handhelds are always a very large portion of the gaming industry. This is shown largely by the DS being the second highest-selling gaming console of all time (and the Game Boy not far behind in third place), and right now the 3DS always outselling everything.

This is the final installment of this series of posts about the best 7th gen games, and there’s still quite a few good games left to mention.

Let’s do this!

Note: No particular order

E3 2013 conferences rant

June 12th, 2013 No comments

As usual I do a quick impressions post about all the big 3 conferences. Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo are showing stuff and I’m just giving my opinion.

I’ll try to do something different from my usual inconsistent ranting… I’ll list the positives and negatives or whatever, with short comments, and then my overall impressions.

Let’s Go!
