E3 predictions - You get one shot

Post by dezm0nd »

I fancy doing something a little bit different on here this year and it's in the form of predictions. I enjoy listening to the podcasts but they often list too many so we're doing one per "major" conference. (listed below with my predictions next to them)

There's no rules other than just one pick. It can be anything, a wish or a predictable game. Just have fun!

UbiSoft - Mario game to tie in with the upcoming movie from the developer of Mario + Rabbids - 0
Microsoft - A deeper look at whatever Everwild is. - 0
Square Enix - I have no idea what to expect. I'll just say... Final Fantasy 7 remake Pt.2 teaser - 0
Nintendo - Mario Kart 8 DX to receive one last "Ultimate DLC" pack and gives thanks for it being the best selling racing game of all time - 0
Sony - Half Life Alyx coming to PS5VR teaser - 0
Rockstar - GTA 3 full map recreated as a playable area in GTA Online using updated but faithful models and art style. - 0

One point per prediction. Half points may be considered.

Winner gets a high five over the internet.

OK, cool cool...

Ubisoft: Watch Dogs Leigon DLC. - 1

Microsoft: Starfield trailer. - 1

Square: Kingdom Hearts coming to Switch. - 0

Nintendo: GBA games coming to Switch Online service. - 0

Sony: Forbidden West 15+ minute gameplay video. - 0

Rockstar: Don't know where this will come, but a remaster of Red Dead Redemption announced. - 0

EDIT: Sorry, didn't read properly - I know Sony aren't doing an E3 conference, but surely there will be a State Of Play around E3...?

my only real E3 prediction is we don't get any fighting game news. Capcom seems content to wait out the pandemic(even tho they're doing a presentation). fighting game devs seem content to show off(besides capcom) at their own events, evo, and also whenever they feel like it.

I imagine we MIGHT get the ULTRA 64 Switch but nintendo is the definition of random so...

I do think it'll be a more muted year - I've heard that Greg miller talked to them and they got rid of the old guard who almost ended up doing some sort of sony vs e3 bloodsport and are looking to get back into the good graces of gamers. Of course, gaming has had a taste of freedom from E3, and there's always jeff grubb/geoff keighly's events or their own events.

I do know E3 was important for networking purposes for indies, so I hope it gets into better shape, but yeah.

M$ has their stuff still baking in the oven. I don't expect anything overly exciting
Square may tell us about FF7R, or they may not
Rockstar is anyone's guess. Since I have stock in them, I'd hope for a red dead 3/GTA 6 preorder announcement lol. most likely something more tame like 'ps5 compatibility for gta online/red dead online'
ubisoft i think told us some of their planned announcements so i'll just skip that

My only prediction is that Nintendo will announce that the first wave of Age of Calamity DLC drops later that afternoon.

Marlew, I'd love that Assassin's Creed Three Kingdoms thing to come true. And of course the Dino Crisis Remake/ Reboot! Give it to me!

I don't have opinions on many of these, I don't think I have enough familiarity but a couple of things I would be unsurprised to see:

UbiSoft - several new open world games some of which F2P - 0
Capcom - Resident Evil Revelations 3/ Outrage on Switch - 0

Definitely up for that Switch exclusive Resi if it happens.

As a wild card, I wonder if Sony will show multiplayer gameplay for Horizon Forbidden West. It was something they wanted to do in the first game, apparently, and I'd be interested to see if they've brought it back. It's not something I really want, but if it was a Monster Hunter type thing where you got in a party to fight massive versions of the machines in the main game I'd certainly give it a shot.

Well I aimed to get around to doing this a bit earlier than I thought I would. Oh well so Nintendo is left so I will do one prediction for them tomorrow:

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Donkey Kong, there is going to be a new DK game. Not only that but he will be returning to 3D after 21 years.

I completely forgot about E3, truth be told. Will check out what I missed later.

Awesome, I have a knack for this as I think I won last year too! I certainly remember winning some kind of predictions on here last year.
