I can't wait to see what Nintendo has to announce, I have to say I'm not that interested in the awards this year.

     

Check out my lastest games review: Fast RMX and  Snipperclips: Cut it out Together

Ah shit, I just realized, when does this end? In 2 hours? Because over here in Pacific Time Smash Ultimate releases at 9PM.

Unfortunately won't be able to watch live because it starts at 4:30AM for me but will catch up on announcements the next day.

My gaming consoles:

Xbox One X 1TB | Nintendo Switch | New Nintendo 3DS | PS4 Slim 500 GB | PS Vita | Nintendo Wii | SNES Mini | Sega Mega Drive 2

2018 HW sales prediction:

PS4 - 97m -- Xbox One - 45m -- Switch - 25m

Microsoft prediction: Fallout 76 will be coming to game pass.
Microsoft will make another acquisition announcement.

I'm just here to see Nintendo's announcements ... and maybe to check on the score(music) award, art direction and best RPG award which I do think Octopath will at least win of those.

Meanwhile in Smash Bros ...

Looking to be a pretty big show in terms of announcements.
We already know about the new Far Cry spinoff and Obsidian title, and many others, such as Crash Team Racing remake, mortal kombat XI, and Metroid Prime 4 are heavily rumored to be there. Should be an excellent show.

Oh wow for some reasons i thought it was tomorrow night.
Well this is exciting then, i'm ready.
