From a personal standpoint, there’s not much at this E3 that’s really got me going. At least in terms of video game announcements. Maybe I’ve become more difficult to impress in my old age… More likely, with us being on the slow buildup to the new console generation, there isn’t a whole lot of huge news out there for the current consoles and what time they have left.
Ubisoft always hold the show that brings a theatricality to their stage. While we’ve mostly moved away from the older, cringeier form of press conference that were physically painful to watch, Ubisoft still seem to hold onto those days with some degree of nostalgia. Which I guess I can appreciate.
Last year was pretty grim viewing for Bethesda. They had a lot of big names, but nothing to show for them. The only game they did have any significant time invested in was Fallout 76, which was a game that, by all account, was a disaster befitting its franchise’s name.
