Onto a brief overview of the conference, I did like the theatrical nature of the presentation, however, I did find the direct and to the point delivery method a bit odd. It was somewhat weird that there were very few intermission periods, in which, a presenter came out and spoke about a #game.
However, overall, most of the games presented did look rather interesting.
After the conference, I did see a lot of gamers complaining on social media about the trailers for #UnchartedLostLegacy and #HorizonZeroDawn’s: #TheFrozenWilds as they felt as if they were advertising content that was going to be released relatively soon.
I really didn’t understand the logic behind these complaints as technically one can view the entire #E3 conference as a massive advertising platform, but the trailers for the two #expansions displayed two rather promising experiences.
I will say that I do understand the disappointment in showcasing these two trailers in the sense that these are expansions for games that have already been released and most #gamers have already seen quite a bit of information regarding Uncharted: Lost Legacy.
At this point, many gamers (including myself) are somewhat tired of the overall idea of zombies, but the game looked very interesting, especially due to the fact that the zombies don’t seem to be the main antagonists within the game-world.
Moving on to #GodofWar, I did quite enjoy previous entries into the series and it does seem like there is currently quite a big public interest in exploring the idea of Norse mythology, which in itself makes the game seem very compelling.
I’m very excited to see what sort of story the new entry into the series has to tell and, quite simply, I cannot wait to see whether battling the World Serpent will be one of the formidable boss battles within the game.
#SpiderMan seems to have created both excitement and disappointment amongst gamers. The #BatmanArkham-style fighting system seems to have a lot of people thinking that it will follow a similar pattern to those games, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing – those games are very entertaining.
The quicktime events in attacking some enemies, however, has annoyed some gamers as some do feel that it has removed a bit of the sense of agency in the game.
In terms of exclusives, the #ShadowoftheColossus remaster definitely did seem to create the biggest stir amongst gamers. Many consider the title to be one of the best games ever released on #PlayStation2.
Personally, I haven’t played the game, but I’m interested to see why so many people hold it in such high regard.
In terms of the multi-platform titles, I think I was already pretty much sold on #CallofDutyWW2 when #Activision made the decision to return to the World War 2 era. The multiplayer #gameplay trailer did look very good; I’m very interested to see what all of the killstreaks in action.
#Destiny2’s trailer looked more like an action movie than an actual game. I’m not all that interested in Destiny 2, but it does seem that if you are, you may want to pick it up for #PS4 if you really do care about exclusive content.
