Since E3 wrapped up the game announcements while game sites are covering all available game demos. I wanted you and I to share thoughts, reactions and ratings on the big 3.
Microsoft E3 Press Conference -......Meh....
Positive - Killer Instinct
Negative - The console, Microsoft's actions before and after the conference
They showed off Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Phantom Pain looks gorgeous and I can't wait to play it for hours and hours...On my Ps3. Sunset Overdrive looked really looked promising, it kinda reminds me of another game that had that maybe Team Fortress 2 but will more wacky cartoons, but its a nice touch. Ryse: Son of Rome has impressive visuals, but the gameplay looks boring, looks like a heavy influence on QTEs. Dead Rising 3 I still am not convinced, looked so much like Walking Dead with no funny gimmicks like the first or second one, just guns and cars. But the airstrike was pretty sweet so I'll have to wait and see more. What really killed it for me was they showed yet another Halo. Are you kidding me? Didn't Halo 4 came out like fall of last year? and Battlefield 4's embarrassing gameplay reveal, I laughed so hard about it. Finally the thing that I really liked through the whole conference, was Killer Instinct.....Until the next day they said its a free game with only having Jago being the only character available so you have to buy characters, stages, everything, Micro transactions on a fighting game......... So every KI fan will be buying a incomplete game. Thanks alot for destroying another Rare classic franchise, first Banjo Kazooie, now Killer Instinct.
Let me say this, I know the ones that are reading this that are a die hard Xbox fans, but you have to understand. EVERYONE. HATES. THE XBOX ONE. Everywhere you go in the internet and real life nothing positive, just rants about the Xbox One and memes about the xbox one. I said before I had faith in Microsoft when they announced the reveal event, what was my reaction I keep expressing about Microsoft, Disappointment, I gave them a chance but they blew it up and made it even worse at E3. You expect me to be all happy about the Xbox One knowing their bull policy's are still around because it hurts your feelings that I'm bashing your favorite company? Angry Joe is the best example for long time Xbox gamer reacting to the Xbox one, he's been with the Xbox since the first Xbox and the 360 the whole 2 generation including PC, now he made 2 rant videos, and on top of that, how are you still defending this company even after all this stupid things they did before and after E3. Damage controlling on Redict or whatever that site is called, making fun of their own fans about backwards compatibility and get a 360 if you don't have better internet, blocking comments in their own channel. They deserve all this negative attention because their image now, its not likable or trust worthy, you don't own Xbox one games, your friend is only allowed to borrow once, you have to check in 24 hours or you're boned. Everything it has is not a good thing to own a Xbox one if they can manage to sneak in something good. Wii U owners are being mocked every bad Wii U news week after week yet bashing Microsoft's console I'm the bad guy.
Sony E3 Press conference - Surprised me.
Positive - Kingdom Hearts 3, Final Fantasy XV, price, all features.
Negative - Still lack of PSVita games, first half focused on TV services, most new IPs are you wielding a gun.
They opened up the conference with the Vita, I was hopping they will show some love for the Vita........Turns out they did not such thing, no price drop, no original exclusive games.....Guess I have an opportunity to troll the thing even harder now. They showed boring stuff like video unlimited, I kept thinking in my head "Oh god please Sony don't be like Microsoft's conference in May!" I wanted to go to sleep after they kept going but then they finally showed some games, they looked very amazing, the 18th century game looked pretty good, looks like a survival horror 4 player co op adventure, infamous was AMAZING! I loved the first and 2nd game and I can't wait to play the 3rd one. Then they showed some indie games, which the whole '40 games shown at E3' kicked in and I really appreciated it, I loved the indie games now and seeing that more are coming from these amazing lesser known companies is a welcome edition to PS4 especially the devs behind Scott Pilgrim VS The World. But then. SOMETHING HUGE CAME IN! Square Enix has redeemed themselves! Final Fantasy Versus XIII now called FFXV and Kingdom Hearts III reveal! I got so exited I couldn't even sit down, but then the next day I heard its not exclusive, so that bummed me out I think only on Ps4 would be more epic. I still was very exited that its coming though. Then the biggest troll move Ive ever seen in a conference, Sony just destroyed Microsoft by saying everything that the Xbox one is having, will not be effected on Ps4, everybody in the room was cheering, I was shocked, laughing and happy with joy that PS4 will not be the same as the Xbone. The Price got even better, a more powerful console is more affordable. Then laughed even more with sony;s video about "This is how you share your games with Ps4"
Nintendo Direct E3 - Really amazed me on their graphical power.
Positive - Smash Bros, X, Bayonetta 2, Mario Kart 8.
Negative - Still lack of 3rd party, laggy direct, Retro's long awaited disappointment.
The direct was really laggy because of the amount of people watching at once, but I was able to understand what they are showing. They started off with Pokemon X & Y which i was like whatever since there's like leaks every single day here. When I saw Super Mario 3D world I was like "Oh god damn it its a port of the 3DS version." But when the trailer kept going, i didn't remember 3D land having all these other things like a complete snow level, besides, 4 PLAYER 3D Mario Co op! Less chaotic than having a 4 player side scroll-er. The next is Mario Kart 8, first glance, holy hell, that game's graphics were so much like eye candy the whole way, it looked gorgeous on the trailer and even off screen, knowing that Iwatta said the online will be the best and more tweaked than any other Nintendo game just hyped it up even more, Mario Kart 7's online was fantastic so was the Wii one. Also adding in that zero gravity gimmick was pretty sweet! Can't wait until they reveal more since they have a year. The stinker for me had to be DK Country 2, do we really want another DK Country 2D side scroll-er since we had it 3 years ago on Wii, and re released on the 3DS last month? It really disappointed me so much that this is what Retro has been working on for 2 years. However, things got even bigger and better. Bayonetta 2 is looking way more fun than any other hack & slash, way better than DMC and the previous Bayonetta. Then they showed an amazing trailer from X. X is beginning to be the most amazing game Ive ever seen from Nintendo, its setting the hype so high right now. Looks so much like Ps4 quality its so unbelievable that its running on the Wii U. And Finally, the biggest one of all that everyone was waiting for, Super Smash Bros. While it was ending, they flashed a warning sign, and I saw someone in a cliff thinking this person is like a servant of Master Hand, it stopped but the audio kept playing and I got frustrated on the stream server not playing, then I heard a noise sounding retro, I was thinking "Oh god no, its gotta be Pac-Man, damn it Namco!" But then the video started playing again, it showed me the eyes of the new character and that memorable battle jingle, My jaw dropped to the floor. Mega Man is finally back after all these years as a playable character in Smash Bros. Seeing him in the game. They nailed it. He is just like his 8bit self but in a 3D environment, unlike the Megaman Powered up game were he didn't imitate his 8bit actions.
Overall: Sony & Nintendo both were on top, I couldn't choose who won because both had flaws and had amazing games that made me a kid again. so I nominate both. Thank you Sony for not having the same flaws as the XBone that everyone was predicting to be true and thank you Nintendo for not being as boring as the last E3 conference, but please come back making a conference again next E3. I missed out on thousands of people cheering on Mega Man's debut in Smash.
