While the team wasn’t at E3 this year, we did try to do something different for the show! A pre-show and post-show podcast featuring Lucas, Pino and Sly. If you missed our live streams, be sure the check them out, along with the presentations in the group below.
Please note, due to the presentations using copyrighted music/material, some of the presentation has been muted to avoid takedown.
Starting the show off on Saturday, EA gave us a look at some of the major titles coming later this year including a closer look at Star Wars Battlefront 2, the Split-screen co-op title from the developers of “Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons” called “A Way Out”, and a tease for Bioware’s upcoming project Anthem.
Mircosoft came out the gates swinging, over 40 games with over half them listed as either timed or full exclusive! Plus the first look at the Xbox One X (formerly Project Scorpio). We lost our $#!% at most of these announcements including our look at Bioware’s Anthem, Assassin’s Creed Origins, Dragonball Fighters Z, new Metro title and Sea of Thieves.
Bethesda brought in a big push for VR this show with the first look at Doom VFR, and a closer look at Fallout 4 VR. While Elder Scrolls Online and Legends made an appearance, it was The Evil Within 2 and Wolfenstein 2: New Colossus that stole the show. We’re going to say though, a fairly lackluster show when compared to other shows.
We don’t have a stream for this one because we don’t actually know what the hell happened here. The Presentation was 15 minutes long and involved heads exploding, lots of blood and was generally crazy. To be honest it was one of the best things we’ve ever seen, and kudos goes to the Twitch staff that preformed an insane pre-pre show that was reminiscent of something that Adult Swim would have done between the hours of 1 AM to 12 PM.
Your first question, why was this presentation split in two? Simply because we lost connection between the stream. That didn’t stop Ubisoft’s presentation from being awesome with gameplay for Far Cry 5, Assassin’s Creed Origins, the reveal of Mario+Rabbids, and of course, Beyond Good and Evil 2!
Sony was nothing but trailers, giving us a new look at God of War, Spider-Man, and Days Gone, while introducing VR titles like Moss and The Inpatient (an Until Dawn prequel set 60 years before the original game) and a few other major titles.
So how did we do? Let us know if you want more of the pre/post shows or if we should stick to doing Podcasts in the comments below.
