What are some things you were personally expecting (to any degree) this E3 that didn't show?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - What are some things you were personally expecting (to any degree) this E3 that didn't show?

Every year there is one E3 presentation I do not miss, and that's Nintendo. I watch Microsoft's and Sony's conferences typically online later in the day or the next day. It's because that's the company I love, and I have always enjoyed their first party titles more than any 3rd party, or 1st party games any other company could offer. 

I essentially mention this to let people know I'm not trying to crap on Nintendo, being that I'm pretty much only going to write about Nintendo games I was disappointed didn't show. So here it is.

Bayonetta 3: this I thought was a shoe in for a gameplay trailer. Nintendo talked about how they weren't going to show games years from release, so I figured an entire year later it would definitely have something to show. 

This brings me to...

Metroid Prime 4: I can cut Bayo 3 some slack being it's a Platinum game. Third parties I don't expect to be held to the statements made by Nintendo. MP4 however, has no excuse. revealed YEARS before it is going to release apparently, I was incredibly disappointed it did not show. 

These two things were the WTF moment for Nintendo's presentation. There was one more game I was really hoping would be revealed, that would have been the HUGE reveal for this years E3. That said I was not really expecting it, but still probably the most disappointing exclusion.

Monolith Soft's new game, or next Xeno project: Let's face it, Monolith Soft is the company a lot of people are really keeping their eyes on with Nintendo. Everyone wants to know if the next Xeno game is X-2 or XC3, and people are anxiously awaiting to see what that new IP they are working on is.

As with the other games I mentioned I don't buy they didn't show it because it's years away from releasing, so is Bayo and Metroid. This would have been the stinger for the Direct we just never got. Hopefully we'll see it at next years, which I expect to see all three now.

No doubt, it's going on 2+ years since they announced they were working on a new game right?



Rocksteady's new game. It's been 3 years since Arkham Knight, so I expected to see something.

Mortal Kombat 11 as well. NetherRealm has a two year cycle with an E3 reveal on even years and releasing the game the following spring, on the odd years. It's surprising to see they are abandoning that cycle.

Yoshi for Switch as well. We never saw that game after it's initial reveal, ever.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Yeah, and even further back they hired a ton of new employees and someone at Nintendo, I think Miyamoto, said Retro Studios was now big enough where they could feasibly work on two games at the same time if they wanted to. Still, they haven't done any release besides minor port work or helping out since Tropical Freeze back in 2014... Which was completed in 2013 and only got delayed to fill in gaps in Nintendo's release schedule back then. It's getting a bit absurd at this point. Are they doing their own Shenmue or something? :P

Bloodborne 2, a fourth game by Fumito Ueda (Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, The Last Guardian), the end of PS+ as online should be free... I guess that's it.

Yeah, Yoshi was delayed which sucks. Pokémon would have been extremely high on this list too if they didn't say from he start it would be a while before they show it off when they announced it. 

As for Rocksteady, who knows what they're doing. 



I was expecting Gameplay of RDR2. Got nothing. Don't even think there was a trailer for it.



I was expecting sony to do a lot better in presentation.

Im happy we got sekiro and that everyone on ps4 and xbox will be able to play it.

I am wondering when they will be trying a new Armored Core game.
