My very late E3 Review

Notes for you guys: So literally, this was written out and scheduled. But due to an update, the schedule got reset and well, yeah this is why it’s late. Well, enjoy!

 

This is my time of year, I freaking love E3. So let’s get started. I’m going to organize this by days because my notes are a little messy and I was working all of E3 sooooo anywho!

 

Saturday

Microsoft had a pretty good presentation.  They announced a lot of awaited titles like Halo Infinite, that’s another Halo Chief story OMG OMG OMG (I don’t have a Master Chief Problem).  They also announced Gears of War 5 which follows Kate. It looked like JD went C.O.G so I’m interested to see the direction they’re headed in this game. Friends become enemies? Only time will tell (and the release hehe) Crackdown 3 has quite a bit of hype, thought I think it’s because I’m a Terry Fan girl. And I hold no shame in that.

 

Microsoft also announced Battletoads (Meme finally came to life) and Devil May Cry 5  where you play at Vergil, always exciting to get a new story and see how they evolve characters we love! On top of other amazing titles like Just Cause 4, Forza and Cyber Punk, Microsoft announced so many damn Indie titles that I couldn’t keep track of them. I couldn’t think of anything negative about Microsoft’s E3. But EA….sigh…..that’s another story.

Now this threw me off, simply because I forgot…they went in depth with Kingdom Hearts 3. The new worlds, the new controls, the new keyblade. Everything. Just EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! I am so excited for this game and I can’t wait until January 29th. It’s been 10 plus years, and I am ready and prepared for this game to be in my life. I really like that they’re changing the combat style a little and letting you change styled live instead of going through your menu and selecting it. It’s just ahhhhh So hard to not be excited! I mean my first tattoo was a Kingdom Hearts one.

So let’s start with the good. New Star Wars game is always fun! As a fan of the sagas and books etc I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen. I just hope there’s no Micros but that’s futile with it being an EA game.  Another fun game is Sea of Solitude. Oh my god! I want this game in my life. The graphics, the idea holy titties this is a 10/10 for me!!! I’m also excited to see Unravel 2. I loved the first one and I’m anxious to see how multiplayer works for this 😀 WHOOT

Now it’s time for the bad and Ugly. They talked about Battlefield V and they went the BR route. *facedesk* of course they did. They are also saying there’s way more player destruction in this game as well as two things I’m finding hard to believe. One being Free DLC and the second No loot Boxes. Coming from EA, you can see why I’m skeptical. Now, with the loot boxes things they’re literally renaming them to Air Drops. I’m sorry but if you rename shit, it’s still shit. Ya know? I just ugh…..

 

Sunday

So this was fun to me.They didn’t go into a lot detail with most of their stuff so I can really only be excited for name sake. Doom Eternal was announced, which excited me. I like Doom and have for quite awhile…They also talked about Wolfenstein: Young Blood where you play as BJ’s twin daughters. Prey’s new DLC got announced going into details with it mostly the fact it has almost endless possibilities. How awesome was that? I mean really. They also delved a little in Rage 2, which is exciting. A few years after the other one with a new lead guy who actually talks. HE TALKS GUYS! How neat!  You also can’t forget Starfield, a fancy new game they announced everything only to be shit on by the 34 second Elder Scrolls VI trailer that did nothing.

 

So, as you noticed, I didn’t mention Fallout 76 above. Before I start this, I want to tell you all the truth. I don’t know how to feel about this game. I always felt Fallout should have Multiplayer functions. I just feel like this is a great thing in a game like this. So, going back…they announced some big things about it. Always online, you play on servers of 12 people. There are nukes you can get and use them to change the are or destroy your enemies. Apparently, it’s easy to rebuild after they drop a nuke? I…I really don’t know how? I mean logic says you can’t do that easily haha but that’s just me.

I like Bethesda’s conference. But I’ve always been a Bethesda Fangirl, and that wont ever change. So I may be bias towards them. Just saying.

 

Monday

I’m disappointed with Square, but to be fair…their one game they’re releasing soon was taken over by Microsoft so they didn’t have anything to do. They did go a little into KH3 but just a trailer we’ve seen so many times, then they talked a little about Babylon’s Fall and The Quiet man.  I can’t say I was too excited for anything beside Shadow of the Tomb Raider. I mean Holy shit this is exciting! I always loved the Tomb Raider games with a passion. I just like being Indiana Jones but with more gore and boobs. Makes it fun for me.

 

Ubisoft went over some big titles that are GOTY worthy, New Just Cause, Rainbow Six content, Beyond Good and Evil. Ubi also went into more detail with hew New Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.  They talked a little more about how you’re this Spartan and like the combat is more brawler then sneaky and it’s like “awe… come on…”

 

They also announced The Division. You know that infection breaks out and stuff happens and you kill things? Oh my bad, The Division 2. Oops. Ctrl+C    Ctrl+V….

 

The biggest thing I was excited about was Rapture Rejects.  Now, I’m not a big fan or BR games. I”m sorry they’re all the same to me. But this…this is different to me. The idea of all of this being after the Rapture and killing people just excites me. I’m not sure why but I need this in my life! Haha

 

Tuesday

Last day of E3 . Nintendo by far was the best. They talked about the New Pokemon Game: Lets go Eevee/Pikachu. I can’t wait for this. Going back to some of the older regions that I grew up with.  I like that they brough back the Pokemon following you system in the game with hints of some of the aspects of some of the newer games like petting Pokemon ect. They added some Pokemon Go things to it as well, like throwing your Pokeball and the whole taking your Pokemon with you. That’s always exciting.

 

Nintendo also talked about Super Smach Bros Ultimate. Adding all of the characters from all the other games, adding the Inklings and Ridley. RIDLEY!! AHHH That is so exciting! I can’t wait to play as him! It’s dumb I know but I still can’t wait for this in my life.

 

Oh, Fortnite coming to switch.  Eh

 

 

So all in all, E3 kind of disappointed me. I don’t know how I feel to be honest. There were a few games I was excited about. But most of it was like stuff that was announced before with no real new information.  But that’s what you get I suppose. I worked a lot of E3, but I don’t feel like I missed anything really. But that’s alright. With more info dropping daily about most of the games, I don’t feel bad for not watching it. But let’s face it. There are a lot of claims of Free DLC, no Season Passes, No Lootboxes, but a lot of the games have already back tracked. So I’m not sure what to believe anymore. But we’ll see when they come out who changed their mind and what happens.

If you’re interested, we did a E3 podcast so check it out for more indepth how we all fee about it. Love you all!
