^That's a lot of maybes.

I mean, we know NetherRealm has been working in something big that isn't Injustice or MK for a while, and they have announced their previous game with Geoff Knightley.

Added a new poll in. This will likely stay the poll topic until we start getting more info (So likely a day or two depending on what we get from the kick off tomorrow). Also, posted the results from the previous poll in the OP. It is no surprise that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild won. Though, admittedly, I should have put Elden Ring in there as an option instead of Overwatch 2. Seems like hype for that one doesn't stand up.

Also, added the official E3/Summer Games Fest graphic to the OP. And I'm in the process of trying to link everything right now, so please bare with me!



For the poll, I voted Nintendo but Xbox/Bethesda is a close second because in my eyes it's basically the last chance they have to get me back on board. I'm excited to see what may be and what absolutely needs to happen in order to not walk away from the show disappointed. Nintendo will almost surely bring at least Smash Bros characters and updates on some of the games we know are coming but need more info on (Zelda, Bayonetta, Metroid, No more HEroes, Super Mario PArty 2, etc), and they usually have a run of indies and smaller games, so that's what I'm most excited for, but it's Microsoft I'm most interested in seeing. Because if they fail to bring us anything...AGAIN...then I just don't see the brand recovering.

Basically, anything short of 2+ hours of nothing but back to back exclusives with actual gameplay and proposed release dates is going to be a disappointment. That's what they need to stay in the race, as far as I'm concerned and I'm 50% convinced they'll pull it off. Because they have to. So far we've gotten plenty of acquisitions and game name reveals with minimal info and no real solid release dates on a tonne of Xbox stuff, so they have unlimited potential but almost no concrete information aside from 'Halo infinite should be coming out soon, I guess; oh, and we have Bethesda so we'll probably show something Starfield/Elder Scrolls, too.'

Point is, Nintendo and Microsoft are the two I'm most interested in. Nintendo because even if all they show is a new smash character I'm likely to fist pump over it, and Microsoft because so, SO much hinges on their presentation that it has to be good, right?

Show is not even two hours, and having those expectations is just setting up for disappointment. And clearly when all Nintendo needs to show is dlc smash character to get your "fist pumping." You've already shown your bias. Btw, we good, you can stay off board.

Alright then, an hour of reveals. 

And dude come on, look at your avatar. Nintendo has been KILLING it the last few years and Smash is one of my all-time favourite games, so it will take very little for them to impress me whereas I've yet to see anything from Xbox for years now so they need to do a lot more to impress me. It's really that simple and I do not see how 'one company is doing well so simply maintaining that pace will keep me happy' vs 'another company is lagging behind and thus has to do a lot more to impress me' is that controversial of a statement. If both companies were starting from scratch then they'd both need equal work to impress me but we don't live in a vacuum and that context is important.

Hype! May the festivities begin!(Tomorrow)



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

Potential.
Will Ubisoft give me another Rayman? No probably not.
Will SE blow me away? They could. There is a lot of possibilities for new stuff, or new content for old stuff.
Will Namco hit me with a fun RPG looking game? Yes. They have ever year I think. But Typically through another company like MS/SE/Sony. Has Bandai ever done their own show?

And Nintendo. Bayonetta 3? Donkey kong? 2D mario? Mario Kart 9? so much potential. I have no faith though.

Bandai more reliable, SE more heavy hitters.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

This is #3 for me because I REALLY wanna see Final Fantasy XVI And whatever this rumoured FF Souls-like is going to be. Oh, and whoever shows me more of Elden Ring is likely to win E3 for me. I loves me some Hidetaki Miyazaki and GRRM's writing/world building!

Alright everyone, please keep it civil in here.

As far as my choice, I chose Nintendo because I'm curious to see what they show. If they just announce a Pro or specific games, it'll be kinda a clear win unless the following happens... For Microsoft, I have many games I'm interested in, top of the list being Psychonauts 2. If they shadow drop Psychonauts, I don't think anything will top that. Third most excited presentation I am excited for would be Take Take for the supposed Marvel X-Com game.
