E3 2019

So E3 2019 has been and gone. Bit of a let down this one for me considering Sony chose to opt out this year and there were very few surprises from third parties especially as games seem to get announced prior to the show nowadays.

However there were a few highlights from the show and some of the ones I’ll mention below

Firstly Microsoft announced a new console project Scarlett which is apparently 4 times more powerful than the Xbox one X. It will launch alongside Halo Infinite
I know Sony has also confirmed the existence of the PS5 so it will be interesting to see the specs of that one and what potential launch games it will come with - my money is on the Last of us 2

Away from consoles, Nintendo announced a sequel to breath of the wild. Saw the trailer for that and it looked pretty good.

Cyber Punk got a decent showing. Can’t wait for that one. Keanu Reeves is appearing in it as well

By far my favourite bit of the show was more concrete details on the Final Fantasy remake. It was confirmed that it will be episodic which raises some questions about how you are able to revisit areas when you get the airship.
Also the first episode will be on two blu rays and will focus entirely on the Midgar section this will expand massively on the story on Midgar and Avalanche
Another question regarding the first episode focusing on Midgar is just how long will it take for the rest of the episodes to be made? Whilst square Enix have said work is underway on the second episode I reckon it might take up to a decade for the rest of the story to be told considering just how massive the original game was
Remaking the entire thing will be a hell of a job


Oh and final fantasy 8 is getting remastered and will be out this year

I saw clips on the FF remake and it looked AMAZING!

When I first heard they were doing it I figured it may well be a remastered version of the original with better graphics but they really have gone above and beyond!

Super excited for its release.

I like how they've done the same scene across 4 systems:

Yeh best thing at the show as a first appearance was Watch Dogs. But said that the first time I saw the original watch dogs at E3 also.

2077 looks better every time I see it and is the game I would say I am most looking forward to.

Felt Microsoft played it way too safe, and you can see why Sony opted out of this year which is basically a transition year.

And even then I don't feel excited for any MS exclusive. Gears looks like Gears, Halo like Halo etc etc. So happy Sony shook things up, and MS should be having a hard long look at God of War.

I feel Sony played this whole E3 perfectly, they gave MS their next gen script more or less word for word, and all the 3rd parties show cased the games we associate more with Sony. Then add the Death Stranding reveal a few weeks ago and you I almost feel like saying Sony still won E3 without even being there!

Special mention to Bethesda, who seemed to treat most of their slot as a way of saying "We know we have made a game that was woeful but we will do better...we cool right?"

Bethseda are somehow messing up everything they worked so hard to gain.

They really took off on the back of Fallout 3 (New Vegas I know they didnt fully make New Vegas) Morrowind, Oblivion & Skyrim these two franchises really put Bethseda up there as one of, if not the best developers.

However the 7 years after Skrim and we have no clue as to what is coming next? ES: Online was a shambles.

Fallout 4 was bland and boring in comparison to other titles.

Iv noticed that with Elder Scrolls with every generation they dumb it down further and simplify more for the masses.

And now its just seems that Tod Howard is happy to just laugh it off?!

They had the world at their fingertips and now it seems people see them as a bit of a meme

Dude it all started going down hill after quite potentially giving the best E3 i have ever seen. That was almost perfect in my books. Right amount of game drops, the amazing FO4 release date etc etc

To this this latest E3 was so cringey. And for the love of god sort a new engine out! Witcher 3 has now set the gold standard for open worlds, seriously is the next elders scrolls game isnt on a new engine and they just continue to push this sheet that is just Skyrim on mobile they can kiss it. RIP Beth!
