Sony E3 Press Conference

There was a lot to cover in Sony’s conference at E3 today. They had to go and follow Microsoft’s damn good presser.

Let’s get started, shall we?


Last year, I was introduced to Japan Studios by their game Bloodborne. A year or two before Bloodborne, they announced a certain game called “The Last Guardian”…then…nothing…until this year and holy shit. Wow. First, nothing beats a game made by Sony. Visually stunning, awesome graphics and by God the first trailer is gameplay footage. Game. Play. Footage. Woo!

Also, after that promo I looked my dog (who may or may not have been staring at a grown man weeping) and asked her “WHY CAN’T YOU HAVE WINGS?! WHY?!” The Last Guardian will be released in “2016”.


If you will picture this. You have a futuristic world, one that had witnessed a major change and everything is turned back into what it used to look like in the past and there are villages out there and societies and everything in between and you play as a member of the first village ever made and, yes, they seem to like and hate each other. It looks like you take control of someone who has a hunter-esque However, there are…robots. Not only are there robots…there are robot dinosaurs.

This new IP looks incredible and I can’t wait to play it.


This is where things get awesome for Playstation owners. The game franchise Hitman has done a whole bunch of awesome, from console games to Hitman Go. Hitman looks like it’s going to be another game in another awesome franchise. That’s all. Right?


With your pre-order of Hitman, Playstation owners will be able to play Hitman Beta. That’s right. Playstation is the only system that will allow you to play Hitman.


They released the trailer, which looks awesome, and the same thing that happened with Street Fighter V as it will be for Hitman. Pre-order Street Fighter V and, yes, you (as Playstation 4 owners) also get the Street Fighter V beta.


No Man’s Sky was announced last year at E3 and this year the guy came out and played it (as he did this with a very monotone voice) and played with, probably, one of the best games I’ve seen in E3. Period. I like that it’s multiplayer. I like the fact that you can explore planets and worlds beyond compare and claim things for peace or blow things up at your fingertips. It’s that freedom of playing this game makes me want to play THIS GAME!


Remember a few years ago we were ripping on that Storybook thing with motion controls and how idiotic that would be and how stupid you would look reading something like that or doing whatever the heck you were suppose to do with that?

Now, take that…and make it better.

Dreams allows you to create dreams. Not only that, your friends dreams. Not only your friends’ dreams, complete strangers’ dreams to make it yours and branch out the dream. This game takes that Storybook failure and makes it even better, as it is made by the same company that brought us LittleBigPlanet.


This game looks interesting. This is one of those indy games that are jumping to consoles and it damn near gorgeous and looks interesting. To me, this looks like something that you would see in The Stanley Parable, where there’s no real action but an amazing story to get you hooked.



The first words out of my mouth were “PLEASE! LET ME FEEL COMFORTABLE IN PLAYING DESTINY AGAIN! PLEEEEEEASE!” and this looks pretty good. The cool thing is that now there’s even more power-ups and a brand new story that will have you playing for even more months.


Other than dogs (and one that could fly) I feel like the MVP for this E3 has to be female protagonists. No matter what game it was, you feel like there was the choice of being a woman as a protagonist. From Dishonored 2 to Fallout 4 to, now, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, the choice is yours.

Having it happen in England makes it soooo good, too. Just as you would expect the ol’ timey Englanders would be with the cockney accents and everything. It’s a great looking game and will probably be my next game I forget what time it is while playing.



Rizz Fact: Never played Final Fantasy.

However, there is a cult following and once they announced World of Final Fantasy (a game that looks like a Funko Pop) and THEN Final Fantasy VII: Remastered! It’s going to be a Playstation 4 exclusive! Honestly, if this is what it looks like remastered, I might play FFVII and give it a go. Whoo-boy.



This broke the internet. No. Seriously. This broke the freaking internet. Sony did an amazing thing when they promoted the Kickstarter that would bring Shenmue 3 into existence and within the hour Kickstarter crashed and when it came back, Shenmue 3 already reached one million dollars.



You knew they had to mention Morpheus, right? I mean, look at Microsoft and see their presentation with Minecraft, how can (if they can) Sony top it? How about a 4-player multiplayer where one wears Morpheus? Oh man, it looked good too.



It was announced that Vue will be the only one of its kind that will allow you to purchase stations without buying other stations or a plan, like your cable service (which is pretty neat).



This is a shocker.


The World premier of Blops 3 was everything that I thought it should be. It’s not the same. It’s different. It’s unique. It’s something people were waiting for in the franchise because, well, when your maps get stale…they get stale.

Anyways, the big thing that was perfect is that now the story mode is now available for co-op multiplayer. That’s right. BLOPS 3 IS GOING TO BE DIFFERENT! DROP THE BALLOONS!

I had zero intent on playing Black Ops 3 when it came out and, now, I have a feeling it will be the next thing I buy.

Did I mention this one also has that Beta testing too?



The biggest dick move happened here where the Infinity guy announced the new line of Star Wars Infinity 3.0 (where the crowd even let out an audible groan because, you know, Battlefront). The line-up was good and, hey, you get Boba Fett (and the crowd did too). Which is…cool…

Then Battlefront showed up and made everyone happy again. It looks really good, guys. Just a jerk move with the tease.

I can’t wait to play Battlefront, it feels like the first ever good Star Wars game of our generation (besides dancing Lando).



Now, this one had a few hiccups. Not only did the game not start right away (I believe I counted a 10-count on the “SONY Entertainment Presents” sign) but after the initial cutscene, Drake just stood there for a few more seconds while his partner is walking through a bunch of people. THEN it restarted into the same cutscene and same area.

After that, it looked like an amazing game (I’ve been saying amazing a lot, I need a new adjective) but it just felt like you would actually be a part of the amazing place while having a giant armored truck try to squish you like a little pancake. It looks cool, can’t wait to see it in action.

Overall, Sony did what they had to do for E3. They had to mention Morpheus, they had to make it more fun, they had to make their games more interesting than the competition. They did that with giving the fans Beta testing for three of their upcoming releases.

The only bad spot for me is that there was nothing from Fallout 4, like there was for X-Box One and Microsoft so I was thinking it was just going to be a Bethesda victory lap.

Oh well.

Spencer Teases Fan Favorites

Phil Spencer gave an interview to The Inner Circle where he is pretty much saying all the right things.

In the interview, a list of video games were mentioned to Mr. Spencer and asked if any of the games were going to come back. The response Mr. Spencer gave was that from the list that they mentioned, “a couple of games” are being worked on.


The list is a who’s who of former greats from things that Microsoft owned:

  • Halo Wars
  • Alan Wake
  • MechAssault
  • Conker’s Bad Fur Day
  • Blinx The Time Sweeper
  • Fusion Frenzy
  • Banjo-Kazooie
  • Kameo
  • High Heat Baseball
  • Otogi
  • Shenmue

If you want to listen to the Inner Circle interview, CLICK HERE

Now with Conker being available on Spark and how nobody really knew Nuts and Bolts were a thing, it’s obvious Microsoft knows that Rare games are in demand. Remember, Spencer said that FROM THAT LIST there are games being worked on right now. My guess it’s another Alan Wake or Halo Wars game. Also, Microsoft/X-Box needs a baseball game and High Heat Baseball could fill that void that RBI Baseball tried to fill and failed to fill.

What fan favorite game from that list are you interested in seeing? Is there a game you want on that list?

Shenmue III Is Coming…in Your Dreams


SEGA now has the copyright to one of the biggest games that they ever produced, Shenmue III! Oh my God! SEGA is going to release that game with Ryo and…that lady! It’s going to be so good! THE DREAMCAST LIVES! THE DREAMCAST LIVES!

In this awesome news, SEGA released a statement with Gamespot:

“Sega has confirmed that the recent application for the trademark of Shenmue III is a fake and is looking into the origins of this application,”

Pretty much saying that “Hey, we know someone has the copyright…but we are not the ones who did it. Please stop talking to us! I don’t know what we’re doing either. Let us all bask in the glory of another shitty Sonic the Hedgehog game” and that someone who copyrights something doesn’t mean that thing is going to be coming. Also, SEGA isn’t even the copyright thing! STOP IT!

So cool your jets and play a game that’s actually good.
