E3 or Whatever: PlayStation Showcase 2023

PlayStation’s presentations are typically either incredible or fairly boring. Remember the E3 press conference where Final Fantasy VII Remake and Shenmue III were announced? That’s one of my favorite E3 moments of all time. But on the other hand, remember the one where they only showed four games and it was in like a weird church setting? Yeah, pretty boring. This year’s PlayStation Showcase leans more towards boring, in my opinion, but there was a few really great announcements.

So, E3’s Been Canceled Again

I think we all knew it was coming, but yesterday, E3 2023 was officially cancelled. If you’ve followed this blog, you know that I at least used to go all out each E3. I’d have a predictions post, individual posts for each press conference, and just general thoughts on the event overall. With me getting back into consistently updating this blog, I was really hoping that this would be the year that I’d get serious with my E3 coverage again, but now this.

Resident Evil 4 Chainsaw Demo Impressions

It wasn’t any sort of surprise that following the success of the Resident Evil 2 and 3 remakes, a remake of 4 would soon follow. It is a little disappointing for some people, like me, that Capcom chose to skip over Code Veronica, an important chapter in the overall story and a game that’s more in need a remake in favor of 4, but it is a logical idea. The original Resident Evil 4 shook up the formula of the series, going in a more action heavy direction that brought in a much larger audience than the previous games, and would go on to influence the survival horror genre in general. The remake comes out at the end of this month, and like they did with the last few Resident Evil games, Capcom has put out a demo. So let’s take a look at it.

How About That Direct| State Of Play 2/23/23

Only a couple weeks after Nintendo dropped their first Nintendo Direct of the year, Sony has responded with their equivalent, a State of Play. Generally speaking, I haven’t been too positive on most of the State of Plays, finding that their announcements just never hit the same heights as the ones found in Nintendo’s offerings. But that doesn’t mean the potential for a truly great State of Play isn’t there. Could this be the one?

E3(?) 2020: PS5 The Future Of Gaming

The week that would have been E3 2020 is just about over. Despite not having an actual, proper event, several different companies have put their own individual presentations. I debated covering all of them, but decided that I would only focus on the ones that I was particularly interested in, which are the same ones that I did predictions for. That’s not to say that there isn’t anything good shown at the other shows (Persona 4 on PC!) but I just wanted to focus on stuff that would have been in a normal E3, for the most part. And so, let’s talk about that Future Of Gaming show that Sony put on. Continue reading
