We've got Pokermen. Hopefully not for much longer, because Reggie's just going over the same stuff from the Let's Go Eevee/Pikachu trailer.

 

The audio is really bad and fuzzy on Youtube, btw.

 

Now they're doing a Mario Party? Let's get this boy back on track, Nintendo. I'll give you a few snoozers at the start, but I haven't got all day here.

 

EDIT - Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Looks like a Fire Emblem, alright.

 

And now Fortnite. I'm snoozin' it up over here. I need a Platinum injection, stat.

Reggie is being weirdly formal here, like it's a boring investor's meeting or something. He just called indie developers "our independent development community".

 

Bruh. Reggie. It's us. Lighten up a little.

 

EDIT - Yeah I don't really know what to say here. This isn't Nintendo's A-game. We're doing another indie montage, and Hollow Knight is available on Switch from today.

I sincerely hope that they weren't implying that the main show is over and they're just going to show Smash until the end.

 

No no no.

 

Uh uh.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. They're just doing everyone this time.

 

EDIT - I just... don't care about Smash, man. I'm happy that this makes people happy, but this might be one of Nintendo's least enjoyable E3 shows for me. I've got nothing here.

 

No Bayonetta 3. No Metroid Prime 4.

 

I suppose there's still Treehouse after this.

Pokeball Plus comes with a Mew already inside.

I have about 6 mews, and yet I know I'm going to end up buying it for this.

Eighteen minutes and counting on Smash, just in case anyone was wondering. The narrators just been running through the moveset of every character in the game.

 

Almost makes me long for another Sony style intermission.

 

EDIT - We have now spent longer on Smash than we did on EVERY OTHER GAME PUT TOGETHER.

Gimme a teaser for the 2019 Pokémon game Nintendo. It's all I ask.

SSB doesn't need more of a presentation than "GUYS THERE ARE LOADS AND LOADS OF CHARACTERS AND THEY HIT EACH OTHER".

Yep, they ended it on Smash. It was a 43 minute show, with 18 minutes of games and 25 minutes of Smash. That was unbearable.

 

OK, we've got Treehouse now. Bill Trinen is here saying everything in English and then in Japanese, and Sakurai is here in person.

 

EDIT - Oh God I just realised they didn't even do Retro Studios' game! The Star Fox racing game from the rumours; no sign of it! That was awful.

 

EDIT - k, well I'm running on about five cumulative hours of sleep since Sunday, so I'm going to go and be unconscious for a while. I'll catch up with whatever they announce on the Treehouse stream tomorrow.

CDPR are at Dorito King's Geoff Keighley's E3 Coliseum thing and they confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 will be in first-person, and there is apparently a 50-minute gameplay demo they've brought to E3.

Liiiiittle bit disappointed to hear Cyberpunk is first-person, I've gotta say. I've always thought third- was the superior of the -persons, but, oh well, I'll get over it. I have to go and rewatch that trailer, now that I think about it; I was in full on DMC5 hype mode when they showed it and I didn't take anything in :P

 

OK, so, now that all the shows are done, I think it's about time for some HOT LISTS! Now, I should say that this is, of course, entirely subjective, but, let's be honest, I'm definitely right about all of this. From best to worst:

 

Microsoft: Who'd'a thunk it? I can't remember Microsoft ever winning an E3 before, but they nailed it this year. All killer, no filler; they got in, blasted us in the face with great-looking games, told us about all the new studios they'd bought, teased a new Xbox and then got out. Shadows Die Twice, Cyberpunk, and Microsoft-exclusive Ninja Theory were huge gets, but the hugest get of all was Devil May Cry 5, and that cements Microsoft's crushing victory over every other competitor.

 

Sony: Great games marred by a weird format where they took an inexplicable fifteen minute intermission after the first game. Apparently it was because they needed to move the live audience from one venue to another, but I don't know why you'd design a show that way. As someone who's only ever going to be watching these bad boys online, I couldn't possibly care less about the live audience. I did like the deep dive into big game -> couple of trailers -> repeat format, and they showed some awesome stuff, but that intermission was a big mistake.

 

Bethesda: A lot of the stuff they showed was pretty Monkey's-Paw-y, to be honest. Prey DLC available now, but it's randomly-generated dungeons. Doom sequel, but we're going to dance around whether or not it's a proper singleplayer Doom. Fallout 76 is the biggest Fallout ever, but guess what it's an online shared world. Todd's going to say the words 'Elder Scrolls VI' and 'Starfield' onstage, but they're next-gen games and we've only got logos. But it was still a fun show, and Pete Hines and Todd Howard really know how to work the crowd.

 

Square-Enix: They hired Keith David to narrate between games, and they showed us something new from Platinum Games, so I was pretty happy. On the other hand, their Avengers game and the FFVII Remake were complete no-shows, and they showed the same Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer we'd already seen at Microsoft. And Shadow of the Tomb Raider still has the Lara voice actress who I just can't get along with. And Just Cause 4 looks like Just Cause 3 with an ugly filter slapped on it. Just a very anticlimactic thirty minutes of trailers, really.

 

Ubisoft: After kicking things off with a ten minute dance number, they settled into their patented method of torture by giving every single game an opening monologue, a CG trailer, a halfway monologue, a gameplay demonstration, and then some closing thoughts before bringing out the next game. It was excruciating. Some of those games look pretty cool, like Assassin's Creed Greece where you play as a lady with huge muscles or the reveal of young Jade and Pey'j in BG&E2, but I just never need to see a game for that long at E3. And we were all waiting for Splinter Cell to be the "Oh, and one last thing", but they didn't even do one! Some points awarded for the surprise Star Fox reveal with Miyamoto in the crowd, though.

 

EA: It's EA; it was awful. They've had the Star Wars licence for YEARS and they just can't manage to do anything with it. The only Star Wars game we saw here was last year's game that everyone hated! They've locked Bioware up in the Games as a Service dungeon from whence they'll never escape, so say goodbye to any IPs from them other than Anthem. They had like a fifteen minute segment where two dudes played the world's most basic RTS against eachother on smartphones, then when it was done they told us it had been the new Command & Conquer game. The only bright moments were when they brought the indie developers out to talk about their games. Yarny guy and the German woman who pronounced 'balance' as 'bell ends'.

 

Nintendo: I don't know how they did it, but Nintendo somehow managed the worst show of them all. It was 43 minutes long, beginning with 18 minutes of games I had zero interest in and ending with TWENTY FIVE STRAIGHT MINUTES of Super Smash Brothers. And not even the good Smash stuff, like those great character introduction trailers they always do, but the most boring, lifeless, technical run-through of every character's movesets and how they've been nerfed or buffed since the last Smash. EXCRUCIATING. And then they cut straight to Treehouse where they played Smash for another half hour!

 

Honorable mention goes to Devolver Digital, of course, who did another fantastic show, but I just don't think we can put the real conferences head to head with the one that's just there to roast them :P

Well I'm calling it now. Next-gen begins in 2020. Sony and Microsoft have thrown their cards on the table. Expect 100 GB games in 2020. Not a joke. Next-gen will be at E3 2019.

Microsoft did a great job focusing on games and even promises hardware in the future.

Sony didn't mention new hardware at all and while 90 percent of their studios having projects under wraps. We saw 4 Sony ips right? Well they have like 15 studios with multiple teams inside some studios. Guestimate, but something like 10 to 15 or so.

Although oddly less than 24 hours ago someone slipped up. It's now all over the Internet that Sony has a Zen+ cpu + AMD Navi powered SoC aiming at 2020 that soaked up the Vega Resources to develop with Sony giving direction on Navi development of their special order Soc. Sony is playing sneaky. Seems to be intentionally leaked.

Sony did okay. It's titles are golden for sure. I love samurai and Re2 and Last of Us. I feel like they held back by a large margin.

EA didn't even talk about Battlefield. They just said look and walked away. What happened to all that enthusiasm towards 64 player chaos they had last year. They seriously even fixed alot of the bad of BF1 from what I read.

EA loses the Star Wars license in 2023. They might have enough time for 1 or 2 next-gen titles. They have absolutely failed with everything they made with it though so far. Kotor MMO bombed at launch. Battlefront launch was a dud. Battlefront 2 well you know.

Ubisoft did it's thing. Left Watch Dogs 3 at home.

Nintendo did it's thing. Seems fun and quirky as always Nintendo. Left Metroid 4 behind for some reason.

Next Batch of consoles...........

PS4 Pro - 4.2 Tflops - 2016

Scorpio - 6 Tflops - 2017

NX - 2017 - Mario Mushrooms, and Link's Hat powered device. 

PS5 - 2019/2020 (Powered by AMD Zen family APU)

XBNext - 2019/2020/2021 (Powered by AMD Zen family APU)

Ocelot's gone into far more detail than I ever could, but here are my own:

Microsoft:

No doubt in my mind that they nailed the quantity of games and general showmanship, but the only games they showed I ever want to play were Cyberpunk and Just Cause 4. Hard meh due to my personal preferences.

Sony:

The whole thing had a bit of a vibe like being invited to that weird kid's house, but the games they had looked spectacular. Death Stranding, Spiderman, Ghosts of Tsushima are all games I am extremely excited to play.

Nintendo:

I was hoping Nintendo would announce the second generation of Switch, in the same style as the DS Lite or the New 3DS. I want to get one but I know there are flaws in the console that can be fixed.

I'm (very) excited for the new Pokémon, don't care at all about Smash, wish they would do something with their other IPs (I know you have a Metroid in development Nintendo, show us that).

Bethesda:

Well, I might get to play TES6 before I die. Starfield looks inscrutably teaser trailery, it could be an advert for washing powder for all the info we got.

Hooray, Bethesda are Metal-Gear-Survive-ing Fallout. Because what we've always wanted in Fallout is for LoneDabber877 is to come and teabag us in bright pink power armour. Sigh.

Ubisoft:

I just had to Google what they revealed, because all I could remember was AC Odyssey. Which looks great fun, but I'm still pretty burned out on the franchise so we'll have to see. Splinter Cell would have been nice, but I guess they're still working out how to make that open world with 695,000 minimap icons.

EA:

Bioware is making slightly better Destiny/worse Mass Effect in Anthem. Mass Effect "isn't dead", but they've chained it up in the basement and won't consider letting it out for a while.

Another Star Wars game that will be cancelled or have a stripped down single player so you can buy lootboxes.

I hate these guys.

Square Enix:

Shadow of the Tomb Raider looks fun, if silly levels of DARKNEEESS. Remember when going on an adventure used to be fun? Just Cause looks similarly enjoyable.

Konami

I think someone saw Konami drunk in the lobby, screaming about Pachinko, but they were escorted back to their room, throwing up terrible ideas as they went.

Edit: Best game of E3 for me is OVERCOOKED 2. The first game is pure joy, and this looks like more of that.
