Nintendo Had Mind-Blowing Reveals, But Could Have Shown More

Finishing off the E3 Press Conferences was the Nintendo Spotlight, a 25 minute pre-recorded video full of announcements and updated looks at games. Despite the short length, Nintendo managed to put a whole lot of great stuff in there, including a couple announcements that fans have been waiting forever to hear. This was probably my favorite E3 presentation, but it still wasn’t perfect. Continue reading

Bethesda’s Press Conference Was Uneventful

A couple years ago, Bethesda had their first E3 press conference, and it was a pretty big deal. Fallout 4 was shown off after having just been announced a little bit before and Doom looked incredible. While there wasn’t a ton of announcements, they felt they justified why they needed one of their own. Last year was less of a big deal, but they had Skyrim Special Edition and Quake Heroes, plus some VR titles. It was pretty cool. This year’s show was pretty different, however. Continue reading

EA Kicks Off E3 With A Big Surprise And Not Much Else

I look forward to E3 all year and happily watch every press conference. That being said, EA has always struggled to grab my attention. Part of it might be that I don’t care about sports games, which are a huge part of EA’s business. But it’s also the caliber of the announcements that they bring. They just don’t hit the way other conferences do. This year, EA distanced itself from the other shows by being the only press conference of the day. With all eyes on them, did they manage to pull off a better presentation?  Continue reading

E3 2017 Plans

We are currently five days away from EA’s not-associated-with-E3-but-is-at-the-same-time-so-it’s-basically-a-part-of-E3 press conference. While definitely not the most exciting press conference, this will kick off several days of video game news. So, with that in mind, I thought I would just quick outline what you can expect from this blog during E3. Continue reading

E3 2017 Predictions

E3 is about a month away, and that means it’s time to start guessing what’s going to happen! This has been a yearly tradition of mine since long before I started this blog. Usually, I would post them as a long Facebook post. Last year, I did the usual post and wrote up a more detailed one here. This year, I’m just going to post them here, since the Facebook post gets buried pretty quickly. Continue reading

E3 Day 1

My entire day was dominated by Nintendo’s Treehouse Live show. I could have tuned in to various live streams to see other games, many of which weren’t at the press conferences, but all I wanted to do was watch the new Zelda. And it was worth it, because although I think the reveal of Resident Evil VII might have been my biggest surprise moment this year, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is absolutely the game I’m most looking forward to.
