A round up of everything EA showed at their event: https://www.awx.co.za/nexus/ea-play-2017-round-up.html

I thought the event was really poor with loads of pointless talking only made worse by the ego boosted generation called "youtubers". What they had to show was good with Battlefront 2 looking better and A Way Out looking interesting, but for me that's about it.

Looking forward to seeing what Microsoft have to offer later.

Project Scorpio is now been named as Xbox One S.

The console itself seems good at can hit 4k at 60fps, but I'm not sure why, but once the show had finished I didn't really feel excitement from what I saw. Maybe it's because it's a "mid-cycle" console or something, but the show just didn't grab me. The games were there, but as usual with MS pretty much all of them will be out on other platforms or PC too.

I know Rare are working on Sea of Thieves, but I'm sure they have another team at the studio. It really does feel like MS are just going to close Rare down after SoT lands with a thud.

I guess my overall view is, I'm glad I have a PC.

If you buy a game on Xbox or on Windows, it counts the same for MS. Eventually, PC gamers will be Xbox gamers, even without a console. That's their plan. Platform as a Service. The new Xbox console is just a user-friendly way of getting high performance gaming.

The One X didn't impress me enough, but I did like the games that are coming out! Good time to have an Xbox (or a good gaming rig)

I could give less of a rats ass about Rare.

Ubisoft:

Nice to see Nintendo trying something different by teaming up with Ubi for Mario and Rabbids. Looked okay, but I'm not buying a Switch, so kind of pointless for me. After that nothing really jumped out at me for Ubi. I was looking forward to Beyond Good & Evil 2, but whatever that video was, was not Beyond Good & Evil.

Sony's Conference:

Very weak. Unless you have PSVR, very little reason to watch it.

The showing from the main two has been pretty poor this year. There's some good looking thrid party stuff and the indie scene looking stronger, but the big two must have been caught mid development this year and simply had little to actually show. Starting to think E3 would be much stronger if thry had it every two years instead.

Sega is at E3 right? Apart from those twitch videos, I've seen nothing from them so far.

Yeah, SEGA is there. Sharing a booth with Atlus at the West Exhibit Hall of the LA convention center.
They released a new trailer featuring first gameplay footage and release date for Total War: Warhammer 2.

Ah, right. Guess I just haven't seen it. It might be worth Sega doing a direct like show for people at home to see what they're doing. It's difficult to wade through all the news and I think they get lost in it all.

Hey, Barry, there's an idea for the site maybe? :/

Update: Nintendo:

Mario + Rabbids
Yoshi
Kirby
Xenoblade 2
Arms
Fire Emblem
Mario
Fifa 18
Rocket League
Yoshi
Splatoon 2

In the future (I'm guessing 2019 at the minimum):
Pokèmon RPG
Metroid Prime 4

That's a good line up with a hint of what's to come in the future. Add all the third party games coming and with Zelda plus Smash no doubt in the works, they're looking pretty strong.

Pokemon is always torn between older and newer fans just like Sonic.  O3O Curious to see what they do.

That's a good point. Will they go back to the original 151 or will they make new ones or just a mix of all the old ones.

I was interested in Sega Forever, but now it seems like it's moblie only so I'm reversing out of that interest asap.

NEW 2D METROID

I think my most unpopular opinion when it comes to games is how much I dislike the Metroid Prime games. I mean, I just really don't see the appeal in them. But I LOVE 2D Metroid so this new one coming out in September is right up my alley, especially cause I don't even have a switch yet.

It also comes out the day before my birthday, so it's perfect!
