In the order of what I'm most excited for in E3..
1: Nintendo Direct - Shocking I know, but there's a lot of potential, especially given some third party rumors like Witcher 3.
2: Kinda Funny Games Showcase - They blew the water with their first Showcase from last year, and I can't wait to see what the KFTeam has enstore for E3 announcements and reveals.
3: Microsoft - They have a lot of potential, especially given the angle they currently have. A lot of angles that could be taken, and it makes me interested
4: Ubisoft - I'm excited to see more of their new IP's, especially seeing more of Skull and Bones and potentially seeing the return of Watch Dogs.
5: Bethesda - This is going to be a show to bring popcorn with.
6: Devolver - The Bats**t style along with some interesting titles up and on their sleeve. Very interested to see how they are, especially given the teasing by our own @Chris Glass a few weeks back.
As far as games..in no order,
~The quagmire that is Playground's Fable project
~Skull and Bones
~Watch Dogs 3
~Final Fantasy VII: Remake
So Bio's in LA once more..
Watch Dogs: Legion is the next game in the Watch Dogs franchise and will allow you to play as anyone in the game (yes, you read that right, you can play as any NPC). Set in near-future London. Leaked by Amazon UK.
EDIT: Removed spoiler tags, because....
Bandai Namco's entire lineup for E3 has leaked, amidst apparently security being screwed over.
EAPlay kicks off E3, as Fallen Order starts the week off.
EDIT: The demo video has now been properly released.
The next Fighter for the Fighters Pack will additionally be revealed.
Also, Square has quietly confirmed Stadia for The Avengers on release platforms.
Jedi Fallen Order looks like a game I’ll be interested in. Looks like it plays like an Uncharted kind of game. Much prefer that over a fully open world game.
Keanu wins E3 2019.
I was listening to Waypoint's E3 prediction show and they were talking about Microsoft acquisitions and I thought Double Fine would be perfect: they make their own games and publish small titles giving them instant pipeline of attractions.
Fricken Keanu Reeves man, this guy is amazing. So hyped for Cyberpunk 2077.
As someone who didn't fall into a certain hype-train..I did really like what Microsoft offered. I especially am glad of Double Fine and Tim Schafer (me and @Joe slightly talked about this in private too).
DF makes some fantastic games, and the fact that they're going to get industry backing from Microsoft is going to help them continue the insanely creative ways of storytelling that they do.
I could get why people aren't happy with it. Honestly, I do wish they focused a bit more on Xcloud a bit more, alongside having a little more time for something more beefy in gameplay.
Keanu Fever keeps spreading and I’m totally fine with that. John Wick not only saved his career, but made him more relevant now than ever.
I do think the biggest shock for Microsoft..was them stealing a MMO from Sony, with Phantasy Star Online 2. I won't spare details on what the game is, as it's exactly as it sounds..but it's RIDICULOUSLY popular in Japan. And the fact that Microsoft and Xbox was able to snatch that big of an MMORPG from Sony and Playstation, is a fascinating take all to it's own.
Gotta give XBOX props, especially as it's being powered by their own cloud servers for that level of an endeavor.
They didn't steal. That game had been available already on Switch, iOS, Android, and PC in Japan. So its not a shock Xbox is getting it for a western release when for the others it takes the easiest transition time to switch over.
Bethesda's beginning in 7 minutes.
Man livestream chats in youtube are just ripping them apart.
Ghostwire looks really interesting though, but I really excited for Doom Eternal.
Its kinda boring presentation....if anything from both presentation is the diversity of games being created is small and a lot of these games are really redundant.
