In my last post I stated that this years E3 was as good as I can remember; there were tons of great looking games announced and plenty for us to look forward too! However that doesn’t mean that every reveal was a success. Far from it, there were many, many reveals that fell flat or were greeted with a response of “why is this a thing?”
Here are my selections of the things that E3 convinced me NOT to buy. Continue reading
…it’s the most wonderful time, of the year!
Come on everybody, step on up! We have games for sell! This year, or next! Or quite possibly even the following! Aren’t you all excited?! Yes ladies and gentlemen, it is E3 time once again – so here at the Luvva Tower we thought we would do and give you our predictions (which we did quite good on last year!) so you don’t have to worry about missing those pesky E3 conferences! 2.00am GMT Sony? Naw, I will just read it on the blog a few days before hand thanks! Continue reading
LETS GET THIS PARTY STARTED!!
E3 is right around the corner, gamer Christmas, new hardware and software and more promises than a boyband album from the early 2000s!
I am fucking excited (despite all the recent “leaks” online) so what better time to get my predictions in? There is no better time! Sherry is tackling the Sony stuff so that leaves me with Microsoft (because Nintendo are being dicks and not having anything other than Zelda there this year!).
I’m not at all annoyed by this because their show last year was great; the full conference can be found on the bottom of the post for a reminder! Anyway here’s what I think will happen during their presser! Continue reading
My Body Was Ready!
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
...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
