You’ve had my snarky quasi-reviews of the conferences, and heard what I thought of the shows overall, but what about my favourite bits without my ingrained sense of pessimism pissing over everything good and right with the world? Well, I’ve got you covered with this little list of my Top 10 Moments from E3 2019 (in no particular order, of course)!
The “look at what shit we have” portion of E3 2019 has been passed, and we’re left both empty and satisfied by the proceedings – much like the after affects of going to a Chinese all-you-can-eat restaurant. But, how were the showings themselves? It’s time for my rating (read: berating) of the E3 2019 Conferences!
E3, otherwise known as Gamer Christmas™, is upon us again along with all the hype, leaks, and cringeworthy conferences. So, I’ve been thinking about what I would want to come out of the showings this year, discounting EA because who really gives a flying fuck about them? Although seriously, I’m feeling Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, don’t you dare fuck this EA.
As such, I just wanted to quickly go over what I wanted from the showings of Microsoft, Bethesda, Ubisoft, Square Enix, Devolver Digital, and Nintendo. I won’t keep you too long, just a couple of things for each, along with their show times in UK time for your convenience.
I love myself a pleasant adventure, and so when Microsoft revealed Tunic during their E3 presentation last year I was already sold on the aesthetic and basic gameplay just from that short trailer. I must admit though, I completely forgot about the project until I saw the game at RTX London last year, and immediately (and too excitedly) sat down to play.
E3 is a lot like Christmas. You rarely get what you asked for, it’s full of awful dad jokes, sports are always there for some reason, and it’s not really happening until somebody cries. E3 2018 has had the full monty; from the awful jokes of the Bethesda conference, to people crying over a kiss in the trailer for The Last Of Us – Part II. I watched, for better or worse, the whole thing and thought I’d compile my Top 5 things from the whole set of conferences (even though mine are all games).
