The top E3 2017 games on my list and general thoughts on the conference are shared in this video.
Recently at a standard garage sale in Portland, a comedian named Jacob Christopher discovered a Holy Grail of NES prototypes. He graciously accepted to be on the channel to showcase this crazy prototype. I take a closer look at the proto by taking it apart, as well as show title screen and basic gameplay.
God of War. Spider-Man. Horizon Zero Dawn. A new Call of Duty. Choose-your-own sci-fi adventure Detroit. Big-budget zombie game Days Gone. A VR thing for Final Fantasy XV.
That was Sony from E3 2016. This year, the company showed off… well… God of War. Spider-Man. Another Horizon Zero Dawn. A new Call of Duty — now in World War II.
Choose-your-own sci-fi adventure Detroit. Big-budget zombie game Days Gone. And a VR thing for Final Fantasy XV — this time fishing.
That isn’t to say it was a bad show from Sony — far from it, in fact, as each of those games have taken the year to really improve themselves. There was also a new Uncharted adventure, a remastered Shadow of the Colossus, and some Destiny 2 exclusives. Here’s everything you might’ve missed.
There was, alas, nothing for Vita.
Here’s everything you need to know about Nintendo’s E3 2017 conference in 5 minutes.
Ubisoft brought out the big guns — quite literally and fantastically, at times — to start their E3 2017 press conference. The event started with legendary Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto, who brought hand cannon toys on stage to introduce Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Ubisoft also announced Transference, a VR project with actor Elijah Wood; competitive naval pirate game Skull & Bones; and racing game The Crew 2 (now with boats and planes).
Microsoft started its E3 2017 press conference with the new Xbox One X games console, previously “Project Scorpio.” Next up: a real-world Porsche that’ll feature in Forza Motorsport 7, PC phenomena PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, a release date for Cuphead, a three episode prequel to Life is Strange, a Crackdown 3 trailer starring Terry Crews, and gameplay of Assassin’s Creed: Origins, BioWare’s Anthem, and a very nice looking upgrade for Minecraft. There were, alas, no Halo or Gears of War this year.
Who are some youtubers (not from your channel) we would love to spend an afternoon with just hanging out and playing retro games? Why? And what would we play?
