I think they may have played Destiny when looking for inspiration. Not sure tho.


Anthem is clearly an example of outside-in design approach. Rather than coming up with a good idea, it seems they've developed a """""unique""""" backstory and lore around their Destiny Clone. This game will flop. In someone else's hands that premise could be interesting. Not in the NuBioware era though. It's a cash grab just like all these new battle royale games. These things are being designed to make money, not be good. I don't support corporate focus groups and board room art with my money, sorry not sorry Anthem.

Here we go! Death Stranding got me legitimately hyped. Suuuper curious and intrigued by this game. Wanna wander around that desolate waste real dang bad. A wandering survival game that isn't just status bar management? I'm in. Also I love her her umbrella. We'll see what Kojima cooks up plot-wise, I'm sure it'll be zany and fun. Love the tone they're setting though, very tense but somehow peaceful. Getting really good vibes. Not sure how Kojima will factor in Nuclear disarmament tho lol



Assassins Greek looks like the regularly scheduled AssCree silliness. Might be into skippering a trireme around but IDK, it's still an asscree. We all know what it'll be like. That Samurai Dark Souls looked pretty cool too. Still though, gonna wait and see if they develop a good game around their (promising) gameplay systems. The soundscape was super dope in that demo, I might be in just for that tbh.




MAN tho that Spiderman game. Never before have I felt so much like I skipped out on drinking some koolaid somewhere. I'm pretty sure you couldn't pay me to play through another mookfight -> cutscene -> boss. The Batman Arkham games (which they are just ripping off for Spider-Man?) put me into a boring coma that lasted years. Which part of it looks good? What is there to be excited about? I feel like I've already played this game.

Skyrim 2 and Halo: Again. The monys are flying out of my wallet as I type this. Except they aren't because I think I'm bored of AAA gaming in general these days. Cyberpunk looks pretty cool, but IDK. CDPR games always have this element to me where I like the writing and story a lot, but I'm not sure if I'm particularly interested in what they're telling in the first place. I'm just not sure if I care about a cyberpunk action game in a GTA style open world. . . Kinda wish they'd get weirder with it.


Gotta go with Scorp on the Halo thing. I'll give it a chance for nostalgia's sake but I don't know if anything 343i puts out would get me legitimately excited. Or Bioware. Or Bungie. Or Bethesda. AAA gaming seems to be focused on producing more and more of the stuff I'm already tired of. Skyrim 2 will be Skyrim 2. I'll play it, I'll mod it, I'll have my fun, then I'll be done with it. Just like Skyrim 1 and Skyrim 0.


I'm really looking forward to Project Sable tho. Anything that takes inspiration from Moebius has my interest by default. Waiting to see what they're gonna do with it.

What could any of these big soulless corporations announce that would garner excitement? I can't think of a major AAA franchise (obviously excluding  devil may cry and uncharted) that hasn't been driven into the ground or gone on long past its prime, and If ANTHEM is the kind of new IP they're gonna be leading with. . .  I just don't care about what they have to offer in general.


Here for the memes, but I don't even think I could bring myself to be disappointed at E3 anymore. This is just what the event is now I guess?
