E3 2018 Press Conference: Nintendo

The last press conference of E3 was by my least favorite publisher: Nintendo. Yes, you can hate me now, but I simply don't care for Mario & friends. Granted, Nintendo has some good franchises too, but unfortunately there weren't any good new games lately from those (Starfox, Metroid, F-Zero). The list of games and announcements is pretty long for a 42 minute showcase, but it's mostly because there was a segment where they've thrown a new game on screen every 2 seconds, so here you go: Daemon X MachinaXenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna - The Golden CountryPokémon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee and Pokéball PlusSuper Mario PartyFire Emblem - Three HousesFortniteOvercooked! 2Killer Queen BlackHollow KnightOctopath TravelerStarlink - Battle for Atlas (with Switch exclusive: Starfox)Arena of ValorMinecraftSushi Striker - The Way of SushidoMario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Donkey Kong CountryPixarkJust Dance 2019Dragon Ball FighterZSplatoon 2 - Octo ExpansionCaptain Toad Treasure Tra…

E3 2018 Press Conference: PC Gaming Show

Acutally, it's not a press conference, but somehow it has been tradition for the last 4 years to have a PC Gaming Show, so also added it to my list.

E3 2018 Press Conference: Ubisoft

Ubisoft had a pretty solid press conference, but there were only 2 games that really interest me, so this will be another relatively short post.
The games/announcements: Just Dance 2019Beyond Good & Evil 2Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege Documentary & CompetitionsTrials RisingTom Clancy's The Division 2Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Donkey Kong CountrySkull & BonesTransferenceStarlink - Battle for AtlasFor Honor Free Starter Edition & Marching FireThe Crew 2 (+ open beta)Assassin's Creed: OdysseyOkay, who the hell keeps buying Just Dance so that Ubisoft keeps making it? I simply don't understand.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 was announced last year with an awesome trailer (actually the last trailer of Ubisoft's 2017 E3 press conference, if I remember correctly). This time we've got even more sweet cinematics. If the game will be half as awesome as the stuff they've shown - it'll be beyond good. I'm also interested in how the community involve…

E3 2018 Press Conference: Square Enix

The third day started with the press conference of Square Enix, so let's do that next! The games are: Shadow of The Tomb RaiderFinal Fantasy XIV Online: StormbloodFinal Fantasy XIV Online Patch 4.3 - Under The MoonlightFinal Fantasy XIV Online x Monster Hunter WorldThe Awesome Adventures of Captain SpiritDragon Quest XI - Echoes of an Elusive AgeFinal Fantasy Brave Exvius x Dragon QuestBabylon's FallNier: Automata - Become as Gods EditionOctopath TravelerJust Cause 4The Quiet ManKingdom Hearts IIIFor Final Fantasy fans this was probably a great  press conference, I on the other hand could skip about 80% of it...
Shadow of The Tomb Raider got a more extended look this time, even with some nice stealthy gameplay in the Mayan jungle. I can't really add much that I didn't already mention in the Microsoft post, so I'm just gonna say: looking good! ;)
Just Cause 4 - same as Tomb Raider. It was already announced at the Microsoft conference and I'm still wondering if it i…

E3 2018 Press Conference: Devolver Digital

WHAT. THE. FUCK. DID. I. JUST. WATCH?!?!?

I think this is the question on everybody's mind after watching Devolver Digital's "live"stream, a.k.a. their "Big Fancy Press Conference". You really have to watch it. Trust me it's worth it:


List of announcements:

E3 2018 Press Conference: Bethesda

Today I have been really productive (*taps on shoulder*) and have 2 posts for you, so let's jump right in!
Bethesda really outdid themselves by showing quite a few games in the first half of their press conference, then showing basically only 2 more in the second half. Here's the complete list of announcements: Rage 2The Elder Scrolls: LegendsThe Elder Scrolls Online: SummersetDOOM EternalQuake ChampionsPrey Mooncrash & Typhon HunterWolfenstein II for Nintendo SwitchWolfenstein Young BloodWolfenstein CyberpilotSkyrim Very Special EditionFallout 76 Fallout Shelter for PS4 and Nintendo SwitchThe Elder Scrolls: BladesStarfieldThe Elder Scrolls VI
The show kicked off with a bang: Andrew W. K. on stage, performing live to "introduce" Rage 2. I have to say, I didn't really like the original Rage. It wasn't a bad game and maybe it was my mistake to rush through the storyline instead of exploring, but it didn't really feel like an open world game and the weapons…
