Let’s Watch: Nintendo’s E3 Press Conference of 2016

E3 2016

 

And… DONE!!! WOO HOO!  Finally I’m free! First of all, thank you all Armada loyal for sticking with me through this, I’m glad E3 is only once a year.

The editing, was, unending… But worry not, next year will be much better, because I’ve learned a lot through my trials and tribulations.

Soon Video Game Armada will be back to full strength with LPL’s, Reviews, Batman (maybe), walkthroughs (definitely), and all the good stuff in life.

Now as for the Nintendo E3 press conference, I held off my rating until I watched the whole weeks worth of content (the video here is only the first day – heavily edited). Now that I have, and the event is long past done, I’ll pass my Judgement.

For what they showed it was great, especially the new Zelda title, which I might actually pick up and play.

However I found their show overall lacking in cool meaty details that you know they have like, I don’t know, the NX, for example (I understand why they didn’t as Sony & Microsoft are already combating the NX’s eventual arrival with their 2.5 consoles).

It also lacked the showmanship of previous transmissions as well, so Nintendo, unfortunately didn’t win E3 this year. That goes to Microsoft,  for having the right amount of interesting titles, energy of their press event, and no girl wood (sorry, last time).

Anywho, now that I’m finally done it’s back to business as usually at the Armada – stay tuned.

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s Watch: Sony E3 Press Conference of 2016

E3 2016

 

Sony & the PlayStation 4. The winner of the last year’s E3 thanks to cunning exclusive titles (timed or otherwise) and no spread sheets (see 2014’s E3 to see what I’m talking about). Since then they’ve been riding high with popularity and profits not seen since the PS2 era. So will the storied run of Sony 4th generation console continue on at E3, or will their successes make them complacent at the show? Watch on and find out – we’re almost done!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s Watch: Ubisoft E3 Press Conference of 2016

E3 2016

 

Man… Editing E3 Press Conferences can be quite the epic journey. Anywho, here’s Ubisoft, an all round great show minus the lewd bits. Which reminds me –  parental discretion is advised is advised.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s Watch: Microsoft’s E3 Press Conference of 2016

E3 2016

 

 

Microsoft, and their multimedia master work the Xbox One, is highlighted in today’s showcase. Now while many gamers had no use for the hardware innovations of voice functionality of the Kinect or the TV focused One Guide; no one can underestimate the power of Xbox Live or the versatility of the One’s titles. The question is now will they focus on games this year or will they gamble again by showing something new?

Let’s Watch: Bethesda’s E3 Press Conference of 2016

E3 2016

Next up in our show is Bethesda Game Studios, now they may not have as many games in their library as the others in the show, but their titles are almost flawless – and their entry last year stole the show (depending who you talk to). Let’s see if they have the same amount of luck this year!

This just in (Or not) – E3 2015 schedule

e3-header-overlay-latest

 

Yes people it’s almost that time again, the greatest convergence of gaming since my house in 1992: Electronic Entertainment Expo or E3 for short (but you already knew that). This year will be a year of firsts for in addition of the big three (Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo) and the triple A machines (Electronic Arts & Ubisoft) having press conferences; newcomers to E3 Bethesda, Square Enix, and PC gaming show (by PC Gamer and AMD) will have their own press conferences as well. Will they unleash the next stage of gaming evolution or fall flat? Will they defeat last year’s champ (Nintendo) or will their  E3 transmission this year blow us all away again? Tune in and watch it for yourselves – or watch our Let’s Watch reactions of every conference either way you can’t go wrong.

E3 Aftermath / My picks of the show – Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two

 

Well people it’s been long ride hasn’t it? This is my final E3 aftermath pick and I saved the best for last. Epic Mickey last year (well technically a year and so many months) was daring project by Warren Spector and Junction Point Studios for the Wii. It wasn’t perfect (the camera mainly) but it proved that Mickey Mouse can still shake up the gaming market with great story telling, challenging gameplay, and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit (that guy is awesome). So when they premiered Epic Mickey 2 at E3 this year all I said was: “No freaken duh.” In this adventure Mickey returns to the Wasteland of Yen Sid (huh? I wonder if they’ll use the first game’s data to keep continuity straight (yes I know the sequel will be available for all consoles, but still, the people who played the Wii version should still get that courtesy at least)). With the Shadow Blot (should be the Phantom Blot, but whatever) iced the only baddie left is the Mad Doctor and his Beetleworx robots. Fortunately Mickey doesn’t have to deal with him alone; Oswald, equipped with and all-purpose remote control can aid his brother from another mother in combat and puzzle solving. The Power of Two also adds a slew of new improvements to series like voice acting, camera controls, visuals, and even locations; but I’m just psyche to play as Oswald. So much so that even though Mickey is the main character, I’ll pull someone off the street to play him and I’ll have the lucky rabbit all to myself: advantage Boss Bronze.

 

 

 

E3 Aftermath / My picks of the show – Sleeping Dogs

 

 

You know, it isn’t hard to see why many people like the Grand Thief Auto series: full of action, drama, grit, and of course a very large city to cause chaos in. It is also no surprise there are a lot of GTA clones out there trying to outdo them in form or another (my personal fav is Saint’s Row). Sleeping Dogs is one such title on paper, however, and I can’t put my finger on why, when I saw an action I was greatly impressed. Maybe it was because of the main character who’s an undercover cop trying to take down the infamous criminal organization: the Triads, and must walk the line in order to do so. Or maybe because of the highly visceral melee combat with environmental finishers. It could possibly be because of the setting which is Hong Kong, a very living city, full of things to do. Heck maybe because Square Enix has a hand in it or the fact that is look like an asian movie (which are very good films most of the time); whatever the reason Sleeping Dogs looks like a winner to me – all that left is to prove I’m right on August.

 

 

 

E3 Aftermath / My picks of the show – Dishonored

 

 

Ah, the shooter genre; it is a part of the average video gamer diet. From Alpha Protocol to Unreal Tournament we’ve all played one at one time or another. They’re all unique in their own way, but fundamentally the same. However there are rare cases that a shooter becomes more than a frag fest. For example Goldeneye and BioShock are shooters that surpass the standard by offering stellar controls, unique stories, and of course intense action. Ladies and gentlemen Dishonored will the next shooter that will break the mold. Impossible to go over the myriad of goodies this game will offer – I will say this: you’re an ultra-assassin that uses brutal weapons, deadly devices, and black magic to get revenge on the people who framed you of the murder of the only woman you’ll ever loved. And that’s only the beginning my friends, October will be a treat indeed this year.
