This has been a pretty weird year, right? I don’t really need to get into how unprecedented the times are, you’ve heard it all already, but as a result, there is no E3 this year. Now, how am I supposed to do E3 predictions when there isn’t an E3? Well, thankfully there’s a bunch of little events that more or less replace E3 this year, so we’ll just use those. Continue reading
I sure didn’t write a lot last year. Well, now it’s 2020, and a lot of my excuses for that are gone. So, here’s a quick post to let you all know what to expect from this blog this year. Continue reading
I was not expecting to be playing the private beta for The Division 2. Beta entry was a preorder bonus, and I definitely didn’t preorder the game. I didn’t even play the first one or have any interest in the second. But what I did do was watch about ten minutes of Inside Xbox on Mixer a couple days ago to get an exclusive compass for Sea Of Thieves, and apparently that also earned me beta access. I’m probably the least qualified person to talk about this game, but hey, I played for an hour or so, so here’s what I thought. Continue reading
Ever since the Resident Evil 2 remake was announced in a YouTube video with Capcom Producer Yoshiaki Hirabyashi wearing a shirt that said “WE DO IT” about three and a half years ago, I’ve been very excited to see how the game shapes up. The original version of the game is one of my favorite games in the series, and is arguably the best of the pre-RE4 games. When the game was finally shown at E3 this last year, it looked great, but it looked like it was Resident Evil 4 with 2’s story, which might be good for new fans, but could cost the original game some of its identity. Well, earlier today, Capcom released a thirty minute demo, giving us a taste of what we can expect. Continue reading
When Nintendo Labo first came out, I saw a lot of people talking about games getting “Labo support”. This really confused me, since it really didn’t seem like that was the direction Nintendo was going in. They had put out two different sets, the Labo Variety Kit and the Labo Robot Kit, and both were very self-contained experiences. Nintendo even went as far as to announce Labo in its own separate video, with no connection to any other game and without even using the Nintendo Direct banner. So, what is this Labo support everyone is talking about? Clearly, everyone had gone insane. But then, Nintendo patched Labo support into Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Continue reading
It’s that time again! E3 begins this Saturday with EA’s press conference, and that means I need to tell you guys what to expect from this site. If you followed me last year, this should all sound pretty familiar.
I’m going to do a write up for every press conference this year. I might not cover absolutely everything that goes down, but I’ll talk about what stood out to me, both positive and negative, including the announcements themselves as well as the overall presentation. In each post, I will also include an update on how my predictions are turning out.
If you want quicker, more in the moment reactions to the show, please follow me on Twitter @AndrewLokken. E3 is my favorite time of the year, and I hope you’ll join me in all the fun and excitement!
If you’ve been following my blog, you’ve probably noticed that there’s been an exteme lack of posts so far this year. My life got really busy and the fact of the matter is, I don’t make any money of this site, so it has to be a thing I do for fun when I find time rather than a priority. The good news is, things are finally starting to calm down, so I’m recommitting to putting out the same amount of content that I used to! Continue reading
