Ok regardless of what games they show Sony has the worst conference hands down, this is horrible what were they thinking?

Remake 2 appears to third person over the shoulder camera and therefore is trash, burn down Capcom. This isnt as much of a shitshow as I thought it would be. Ghost of Tsushima looks amazing though.

Are you being sarcastic...? I'm scared. :(

The dimension-hopping ink stealth in DS is sooo weird.

I want tank controls and static cameras! But they showed barely nothing so I guess I shouldnt freak out but I did like the fake out with the rat at the beginning.

The Death Stranding trailer was by far the weirder, and I had a sneaking suspicion that given the concepts that Kojima was talking about this wouldnt be a game that would show well and it didnt because it isnt flashy or anything. But now we have that female lead revealed so people can stop especulating.

I think Sony had the best looking games overall but the whole conference thing was really underwhelming I think it would've been best if they just did a direct type of thing, instead of that whole change of venue etc.

Yeah, same here... :( I totally thought you were making fun of reactionary fans or something! :lol:

Here's the trailer again:


It looks so... rough around the edges. Weird redesigns. Why didn't they just follow REmake? Is this the best they could do after 20 years? I couldn't muster too much enthusiasm for the rest of the show, but Ghost of Tsushima looks great and Death Stranding is certainly intriguing.

Edit: Cinematic Trailer!

Ok this cinematic trailer is much better but I cant shake the disapointment of this being RE4 in RE2... but like I said I guess its too early to tell.

Also Kojima put up a blog post talking about Death Stranding, much of it is still him talking about human connections and stuff and talking about how much he loves the people he is working with but the part that caught my attention was him saying that Sam(the main character) is not your average protagonist he is kinda of a blue collar worker so he doesnt do anything super high octane and that they were building the game around making that interesting to play and that oddily enough has me intrigued:

Im that tired I am thinking they have made this e3 poor on purpose so next years Play5tation (see what I did there) announcement has more hype

It's not too early to tell that those are polygonal environments and that Mr.X is wearing a fucking fedora of all fucking things for some godforsaken reason.

I need to desalinate somehow. I better get off the internet for a while.

(I think it says a lot about my current mindset that I have zero interest in checking out any DS stuff for now. I have little doubt that game is gonna be great, unlike [REDACTED].)

Ok this at least confirms that there will be limited inventory space: https://blog.us.playstation.com/2018/06 ... y-25-2019/

Im less concerned about redesigns and the lack of pre rendered background(though Im still pissed about that)then how the gameplay actually plays, if there is a single point in that game where you have to "shoot the glowy bit" im gonna flip out.

Well that was... interesting. The tech issues in these things do make me continue to wonder why they keep going for these spectacle live events when they would have so much more control over the message if they just pre-recorded the whole thing and streamed that. If you still want to have your schmooze with the journalists moment just have a screening party.

So, Nintendo this evening then, lots of Smash I imagine.

I've watched about half the Sony conference so far. Bravo for trying something different. I just don't think it's really worked...

Last Of Us 2 looks incredible though.

Agreed Alex.

I really like The last of us but I'm not sure I want to play it again or dip back in for the sequel. Great game in every aspect but the story was so depressing and gritty that I've got no urge to experience it anymore. Is that weird?

The Last of Us reminds me of film The Road, again a great film but once was enough.

I think the premise will be a great motivator. I know what you mean about the story I still well up when I remember
Spoiler: show
Sam and Henry

Edit: Ridley?! They actually went and did it!

Never been into Smash. I was loving the Direct until that segment started. Ultimately, some good stuff but mostly spoiled and no surprises whatsoever besides Hollow Knight shadow drop. Bit weird, bit shit. They've tended to release various additional trailers in the hours and day following a Direct, so I'll remain hopeful for some more stuff. I'm probably kidding myself, though.
