E3 2021 Predictions

After taking last year off, E3 is back with an all digital show, and that means I’m back to make some predictions about it. I mean, I made predictions based on the weird amount of shows that popped up to fill in the void last year, so it’s not like I really went anywhere, but this time it’s for something that’s actually called E3! That being said, this is still another pretty weird year.

E3(?) 2020 Predictions

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.

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 Beta Impressions

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

Ubisoft Doesn’t Blow Any Minds, But It Put On A Solid Press Conference

Coming off of the Square-Enix conference, it was easy to feel really let down by E3 this year. Sure, Microsoft’s showing was outstanding and full of surprises, but everything else was mediocre at best and atrocious at worst. And then along came Ubisoft, who had what was arguably the best conference of last year. But were they capable of lifting my spirits? Continue reading

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle First Impressions

Nintendo is no stranger to weird crossover games. There’s the obvious, like Super Smash Bros., the slightly less obvious, like Mario and Sonic At The Olympic Games, and the completely bananas like Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE. The newest game to fit into this category is Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, an Ubisoft developed tactical turn-based RPG. Like the weird combination of Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem but also about pop stars for some reason, Kingdom Battle sounds too weird to work. After the first few hours with the game, however, I’m pretty confident that this is one of the good ones.  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 0

The day before E3 opens its doors is typically the biggest day for game announcements of the year. There was a whole lot of really exciting stuff shown this year, although it didn’t quite match last year’s show. Like yesterday, I’m not going to go too in depth here, just going to touch on my general feelings for each press conference. Continue reading
