Alrighty, let's get to it! Folks are saying that Sony had a better presentation that Microsoft, and I'm inclined to agree. They showed a lot, and had a lot of really cool reveals - this was no Sony at E3 2015, but it's fair to assume that spectacularness will never happen again in our lifetime.
Here's the gist:
- The Last Guardian will launch October 25, 2016.
- God of War is real and coming and looks gorgeous.
- Insomniac are making a good-looking Spider-Man game.
- Sony had a press conference and it was pretty damned good!
- Phantom Dust is getting a remake for Xbox One and PC. Somewhere, Chamberlain is shrieking like a five year old on Christmas morning.
- If you preorder South Park: The Fractured But Whole you get South Park: The Stick of Truth on your new-gen console (or PC) for free, starting today! Oh em gee.
- Ubisoft had a press conference and it didn't suck!
- Microsoft had a press conference and it was pretty damned good!
- Dead Rising 4 is at least a timed exclusive for Microsoft.
- Project Scorpio is real, 6 teraflops is real, and it's coming holiday 2017.
- Klei Entertainment announces Oxygen Not Included - space station management!
So what is the footage you should watch, today? Well first of all, I'm gonna' say the God of War gameplay demo. Then it's a toss-up between the very different Resident Evil VII announcement and Insomniac's Spider-Man. Finally, dig this gameplay of Days Gone - the new thing from Sony Bend!
The trailer for Forza Horizon 3 will really make you want to play Forza Horizon 3. Also in Microsoft's court, the multiplayer gameplay for Sea of Thieves is worth checkin' out, and I love this trailer for We Happy Few.
From Ubisoft, all I'd say you need to check out is this sit-down between Trey Parker, Matt Stone and some guy from Ubisoft, detailing South Park: The Fractured But Whole. Looks awesome, coming this December.
What else, what else... I'm gonna' go with the Mafia III E3 trailer, the Dishonored 2 gameplay footage and the Gravity Rush 2 E3 trailer.
But what is the one I should embed and force you to watch..? I'm gonna' go with the Horizon gameplay demo.
Oh and you can find everything that's happened so far right here on the E3 homepage.
Happy E3 everybody!
