I feel like I should start this article by clarifying that I am probably the biggest Sony fan you are ever likely to meet. I own every console they have every made (even 3 variations of PS3) and I am a big advocate of their phones. However, I feel like this will not cloud my judgement of critiquing Sony in any way – I am able to call them on the bullshit they try to pull from time to time. I am not blinded by them…but I will say, Sony definitely won E3! Continue reading
To celebrate my becoming a parent (that’s right, Lil Luvva has arrived!) I thought I’d cure any of my worries about being a parent by looking at some that are truly terrible!
These guys, and they are all men (where’s the equality police?), should not be parents! They lack the basic skills required to successfully bring a child into adulthood. Sometimes they are aggressive, unqualified or just plain abusive…no matter what, social services should’ve stepped in long ago.
...which came direct to you
Well, it…happened I guess? The most disappointing of all the 3 console developers press event, it never really took off the ground really. The start with the puppets was just incredibly odd, and made little to no sense – until about half way through the event when it was clear Nintendo had nothing to show, or very very little. Continue reading
To continue our E3 month we will be using the next few posts to go back over the major press conferences and reflect on what we have seen transpire.
As a note I will not be putting these posts in the context of other companies press conferences. I will be treating them as an entity by themselves – with a little hindsight thrown in of course, nothing worse than reading the incoherent ramblings of an excited gamer (I’m sure you all go enough of that on my twitter feed during the conferences).
In my Microsoft predictions post I stated that “I expect MS to hit hard this year” and I was proven right on this; they did indeed hit hard. So hard in fact that they easily had their best conference since 2007 – in parts it was incredible! Continue reading
It’s around this time of year that gaming websites around the planet lose their collective minds and start speculating about what they will see at the annual E3 conference. Their hopes and expectations meld with their common sense, overpowering it with child-like whimsy and this leads to an influx of optimistic and entirely implausible tweets and Facebook status’!
Inevitably this leads to a case of severe disappointment and reactionary social media updates that declare E3 the “worst one yet”; because reality cannot match to the infinite power of the human imagination.
You’ll be glad to know dear reader that LuvvaLuvva Towers recently got an anti-hype extension and we are now above such petty speculation and hope mongering. We are now able to control and curb of fanboyism and imagination…
…in saying that we do have an E3 insider who has given us top-secret information about reveals and we are gonna share them with you – well not all of them, just the ones that have us excited more than ever for E3! Continue reading
…Less Me, More Wii, and U.
Sherry is back with more clairvoyance, this time he’s lent his ESP and is attempting to read the most unreadable of companies…
So, the final press conference of E3 see’s Nintendo and Square Enix go head to head in the same time slot – granted, Nintendo’s will be delivered directly to us in their unique form of presentations “Nintendo Directs”. So, what am I hoping to see to be unveiled for my new WiiU (which is great btw, everyone needs one for Splatoon!). Continue reading
With MrJohnSherry covering our Nintendo predictions that means there is only the small issue of the third-party conferences to look at.
I’m gonna try to avoid the stuff we already know is coming and roam into a more speculative mood, unless there is a specific detail I think about a title (BETA for example). Because this is quite a massive heading everything will be pretty brief so you’re not subjected to a wall of text.
Enjoy my last predictions! Hopefully we’ll be as right as these as we were the New model of Xbox One (albeit it only had a larger HDD but still)! Continue reading
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve had the time to put together my round-up posts.
I’m hoping to have a bit more time now to continue these posts – it keeps me reading and hopefully they’re getting you guys some more views (as was the purpose and motivation behind them)!
Consider this – me getting back to the routine!
I hope you enjoy reading these posts as much as I have – please ensure you click each link and give these fine writers their dues! Continue reading
With MrJohnSherry kick starting our series of prediction posts with Sony, I thought I’d look at their big rivals; Microsoft!
I’ve went for a slightly different direction from Sherry, I’ve went with what I genuinely think they’ll run with and not what I’d like them to run with. Without further ado – may I present to you all, what I think MS will do this E3!
Gears of War (including 4 & HD Collection)
The HD collection has been heavily rumoured for months now; hell it even had a screenshot leak.
The leak only confirmed Gears 1 but I will be shocked (and horrified) if this HD Remaster was not a trilogy pack! I couldn’t imagine fans being happy with the first game being a standalone remaster.
I fully expect the Markus Fenix Collection(?) to be officially unleashed this E3. I also reckon that it’ll come with a Gears of War 4 BETA too!
Speaking of GoW 4 that’ll be unveiled with a cinematic highlighting the new setting and new protagonist. Continue reading
