The largest trade show of the year has come and gone and with a month’s time to reflect on the major announcements, it is the perfect opportunity to analyze the impact of E3 2018.
I had this idea over a year ago but didn’t go through with it. This time I did. While I watched all of the presentations, I took notes of my reactions and now I present them to you.
Making money on Mars is a necessity when your hoverbike requires the latest upgrades and repairs. Or when you just have to have the latest in cool indie sounds. Luckily, Desert Child provides many creative ways to do so—but maybe don’t kill the kangaroos.
Anime in America, for the last several decades, has been playing the long game, slowly but surely crawling closer to the mainstream. As someone who was a fan back when it was still significantly more niche by orders of magnitude, this has been gratifying, yet also weird. Jump Force has brought those sentiments on…
E3, and by extension any con or expo really, can be an exhausting experience. I spent all of Tuesday at the convention and came home incredibly worn out. I skipped Wednesday but got an invite from my boss to come back on Thursday to play some Nintendo games- and I figured, why the heck not?
At E3 I attended a couple Square-Enix presentations: Shadow of the Tomb Raider and DONTNOD’s The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. Both games had their strengths and weaknesses and I’m glad I went. Something struck me in the middle of the Captain Spirit presentation that reminded me of my favorite moment from Life…
This one. The one right here.
For the first time in years I’ve not payed attention to E3 in the slightest. I don’t really know what’s been revealed, teased, or otherwise shown other than what I’ve been picking up second hand. I guess the new Smash has everyone or something? Yeah, I’ve basically been living under a rock when it comes to gaming news…
…disappointing. There, I said it. This is what happens when I let my expectations go unchecked I suppose. Let’s start with some positive things before I explain myself though. I hate to lead with negativity.
If everyone is eventually going to serve up some fresh hot takes about “Who won E3 2018?” then I’d like to at least offer up a humble suggestion for a factor to consider: Who used music the best?
As I was watching Electronic Arts’ E3 press conference, I was wondering the same things everyone else was. Why are they using so much time on this mobile game? Then they mentioned the name of the game and it drew a heavy sigh.
It’s always a little strange to start playing a game with an enormous amount of hype behind it.
The gameplay should’ve made me feel excited, but I couldn’t muster much enthusiasm because in the back of my head, all I could hear was “this is all staged.”
E3 has been going on for a few days now, and we’ve gotten some exciting information so far (mostly from Sony, in my opinion). I am particularly excited for the new Spider-Man game after seeing the latest trailer, despite largely ignoring it up until now. However, I would trade everything E3 has to offer for the…
What!? It’s almost tomorrow and I haven’s done any predictions! What to do, what to do.... these are my predictions on Nintendo’s E3 thingy. TLDR: Lots of Amiibos and Remakes:
At Bethesda’s E3 showcase last night, we finally got a better look at the upcoming Fallout: 76, and it’s not like any previous Fallout game. For many, that maybe a let down, but gratefully, that means it doesn’t have a monumental amount of expectations to live up to.
Not being terribly familiar with the non-Nintendo gaming companies, I decided to list my hopes for each conference instead of legitimate predictions. Let’s see if my prayers were answered, if they were denied, or if I got something that I didn’t even ask for! This is part one, which will be covering EA, Microsoft, and…
With Nintendo’s E3 presentation just 3 short days away, it’s time for me to start hyping myself up for the event, even though I should keep my expectations low. In any case, here’s a bunch of things I hope are in the presentation in no particular order.
So I know a bit more about Nintendo than other companies, considering how I used to be largely Nintendo-exclusive up until last year, so I’m not just going to say my hopes, but my predictions as well. “Here we go!”
