Did Sony hold it together despite terrible pacing? Here's Pause Resume's PlayStation E3 2018 review
Sounds like the conference itself didn't go well but when I'm popping these top quality games into my PS4 the field where I grow my fecks will be barren indeed.
The format of the show was trash, but the games show promise and excitement, that was the good thing of the Xbox conference, it kept a good pace Sony better not do this again next year
I hope so. Sony really need to step up with their format next year.
Disaster: "a sudden accident or a natural catastrophe that causes great damage or loss of life" I dont see any of these in Sony's E3 conference. lol at these articles. They are all out of their caves today :D
Gaming media.. literally Sony pacing = disaster Microsoft = great steps to the future of their console... 8 years after the drought started... and their third party deals dried up.., after a gen with two up graded Xbox ones and announcing that work has begun on a new consoles(notice the plural).. slated for 2020... and have no release dates for gears or halo, and showed off another forza.. But pacing is now the name of the game. E3 was a dud this year.. the only benefit is seeing which media outlets have a paid biased lean even more so after fluff review pieces over the last few months. Awesome time to be a gamer all around. :/
"...the field where I grow my fecks will be barren indeed." I'm stealing this.
Yes ppl can complain about the pacing, but where it matters most the games they surpassed everyone so far without a doubt. If it wasn't for the 3rd party games MS conference is just ho-hum imo. For me E3 is about the games not the conferences themselves. I mean Nintendo proves that with those direct shows.
Yes, it is about all the games. Third party included. I liked what I saw this year at E3 across the board. Was the first year I truly felt we are in the new generation. Until now I felt like and have often called this generation the recycle generation. There is still a lot of recycling but this year the lineup looks like they are actually pushing the hardware finally.
For me the problem was, most of the things have already been revealed. Simply some gameplay videos were released, for games that were teased at previous E3. Nothing to see here, carry on.
I think we're seeing Sony hold back as they are beginning a transition period development wise. First party studios beginning work on next gen PS5. Too early to announce or show anything. Show the games coming in the next 12-18 months. It's still a solid lineup coming with 1st and third party over the next 18 months. I did not care for the conference style at all though. It felt disjointed and for Sony, amateurish, with the venue and 4 commentators. But substance wise it was still good. That all said, Sony has all the games for the next cpl years and will likely continue to dominate the competition.
Yes revealed but we still had to see the gameplay. I feel this e3 wasn't that great. Microsoft - had a good showing but this e3 was pretty much a do or die for them. EA - complete snoozefest they never learn. Square enix - very short but they brought the games with like no interruptions. Bethesda - Was good, but what I found funny/cringey was them trying to get an applause from the audience after every sentence lol(that Amazon echo/Skyrim trailer was hilarious though) Ubisoft - didn't really show much but the obvious just dance trailer every year. Not to mention they showed content for games already out. Assassin's Creed was an obvious reveal, was nice to see some beyond good and evil 2 gameplay though. Sony - they usually let their games do the talking but I was surprised by the lack of new game reveals/teases. Glad they showed off TLoU gameplay though!! And Spider-Man! Nintendo - I was hoping for a bit more reveals. Glad we're getting Mario party!! That'll be a fun game for the switch. Overall there was a lack of surprise reveals this year!! And lots of no shows..I was hoping to see The new avengers project Borderlands 3 Animal crossing A tease of next year's pokemon title Syphon filter FFVII remake Fable There's so many more but my head's drawing a blank rn 😔
I don't know how many more times Gearbox can tell people that Borderlands 3 wasn't going to be at E3. No one should be surprised it wasn't there at all.
I think it's at that point where if they have something beyond 2019, they're holding off on showing it because it might become a next-gen game. So, they may not want to announce anything new and major until they can put it out on what they expect out of new hardware.
Let down by Death Stranding but I love the vibe of the game, just didn't see anything but walking, RE2 looks awesome! TLOU2 looks AMAZING but the "Gameplay" was obviously restricted and felt "On Rails" since everything was perfectly in sync. Spiderman was the best showing imo, the conference fell short and no big surprises which was weird?
Not weird at all. Sony mentioned weeks ago that they where focusing on the big 4 titles Spiderman, Last Of Us, GoT, Death Standing with the odd 3rd party announcement and this exactly what we got. I don't know if I am in the minority here but this E3 shows that Sony are getting ready for the PS5. The evidence is there. Once those big 4 titles are out. The next lot of games Sony release will be for the PS5 and I honestly think it will be released around Christmas 2019. They have all ready announced that early next year PS3 and Vita games will be removed from PS+. All there big titles we know of is coming to PS4 this year and next year. So I genuinely believe that next E3 is going to be all about the PS5 launch titles and 2020 PS5 games.
Yeah some people just fail to listen to that. People that was disappointed was there own fault. There are other conventions in the year for games like dreams and they gotta hold off until the other games are ready for ps5 just to note.
Honestly, the conference had hands down the best games showcased at E3 so far in terms of gameplay showings.. I was excited for Ghosts of Tsushima but after that showcase, it's my most anticipated game. If it plays anything like the showcase, it's going to be mindblowing, it was like watching a Samurai movie with that combat plus the visuals were God of War level. Sadly, the presentation though was just horrible. Still, it redeemed itself with the RE2 trailer, easily my other biggest highlight of E3.
Sounds like more Microsoft PR. This happens every year when multiple sites that are rarely heard of question Sony's showing, even when epic.
I knew it was going to be bad based on things they said prior. not as bad as i feared. but after that awesome Sony E3 in what 2016? it has been steadily getting worse each year
Oh stop, it wasn't bad. They were on point with the games, and that's all that matters at the end of the day.
Last I had heard E3 was about the games, but these entitled gamers now seem to think it should be about much more lol.
Games where amazing but the pacing was off. As you said it's all about the games and that is all I wanted form them. Not some dude playing a banjo or some guy playing a flute.
Disaster? That's a stretch.
not if you want clicks
It was terrible pacing only in the beginning after TLOU 2 it picked up.
Kkkkkkkk Nice games, but the presentation was a little messy.
Presentation was trash. Content was rich.
It were the same as Microsofts not good or bad.
Sony's conference didn't have to be elaborate or flashy and was far from being a disaster because all they had to do was deliver and they did..... Resident Evil 2 Remake The Last Of Us 2 The Division 2 Ghosts Of Tsunshima (ps4 exclusive) Those 4 games alone are gonna be big sellers after the christmas season.
