Review of Sony’s E3 Press Conference

Sony opened up this E3 conference inside a church, yes, a church. I don’t think anyone had a clue as to why they chose a church, but they did. They started the show by bringing out Gustavo Santaolalla to play some music from The Last of Us Part 2. After a few minutes of that, Sony jumped right into a deep trailer for the game (around 11 minutes). There was an intermission for about 10-15 minutes, but we did get to watch some more gameplay trailers in the meantime.

This conference, like last years, was all about the games. Before E3 even started, we were told that they would be only showing 4 big title games and a few third-party games (that’s exactly what they did). Even though they only showed off a handful of games, I think they nailed it. All 4 of the big game titles had lengthy trailers (The last of Us Part 2, Ghost of Ashisha, Death Stranding, and Spiderman), and they added some third party surprises in as well. One criticism I had (this was a complaint last year) was on the release dates. Not a lot of the games they showed had definitive release dates.

Every game they mentioned and showed I was interested in. I was really impressed with the Resident Evil 2 Remake trailer. I never played the original, so I wasn’t as excited as those people were, but I will definitely have to pick this one up. I was a huge fan of Resident Evil 4 on the GameCube; I even purchased it on the PlayStation 4, if that matters.

There was another surprise in the showing, and that was this new game called Control, by Remedy and 505 Games. All I have to say is, that game looked awesome! Not many details about it yet, but I’m sure there will be in no time. If details drop about this game or another I will be sure to write about it here, so make sure you subscribe to stay up to date on all of my content.

I’ll post more blogs relating to certain games when they get closer to their respective release date. Comment and share below!

Review of Sony’s E3 Press Conference

Sony opened up with the show with some sweet music and visuals, granted probably unnecessary but a pleasant addition. Their E3 press conference was all about the games though. Shawn Layden made an appearance only twice during the shorter than usual presentation. (Granted it was shorter than other years but I thought the games they showcased were very good, even the VR stuff). They started off strong and it got somewhat weak in the middle but they ended it strong with a lengthy Spiderman demo. One criticism I have is on the release dates. Not a lot of the games they showed are coming out this year and some didn’t even have a release date shown, so that’s frustrating.

There’s been a lot of criticism about the Spiderman game after yesterday because of all the quick time events, but to me, it’s just like playing Uncharted. I thought the gameplay looked awesome and graphics were top notch.

The games I’m most excited for are Spiderman, Days Gone, and of course God of War. Detroit: Become human looks intriguing but need to see more gameplay and what exactly you do in the game. Shadow of the Colossus is a classic and I definitely will play it again in full HD.

I’ll post more blogs relating to certain games when they get closer to their respective release date. Comment and share below!

Of course, if you missed it, here is the full press conference plus all the official trailers.

Review of Ubisoft’s E3 Press Conference

Ubisoft’s E3 conference was one of the best shows at this year’s E3 conference. They came out with a bang, introducing gameplay footage after gameplay footage. There wasn’t a slow or dull moment this year besides maybe dancers on stage for the yearly release of Just Dance, but that makes E3, E3, right? It’s not an Ubisoft press conference without dancing people on stage representing Just Dance lol. Ubisoft’s press conference was all about the games. I was intrigued by more than half of the games I saw today. My favorite game from today’s show was Far Cry 5. I’m looking forward to seeing and hearing more about Skull & Bones.

The games (not in order of appearance)

  1. Skull & Bones, a new IP which is a PVP multiplayer game (Releases Fall 2018)
  2. A new VR game, Transference (Releases Spring 2018)
  3. The Crew 2
  4. Assassin’s Creed Origins
  5. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle (Releases August 29, 2017, exclusive to the Nintendo Switch)
  6. Just Dance 2018
  7. South Park: The Fractured But Whole
  8. (Releasing October 17, 2017)
  9. South Park: Phone Destroyer (a great way to waste time during the day)
  10. Starlink: Battle for Atlas (Releasing Fall 2018), another new IP
  11. Steep DLC-Road to the Olympics (Releasing December 5, 2017),
  12. FARCRY 5 This game looks epic and gorgeous. With guns for hire, friends for hire and of course they added a dog (which is totally badass) and a dog for hire.
  13. Beyond Good and Evil 2…finally!

I’ll post more blogs relating to certain games when they get closer to their respective release date. Comment and share below!
