Was kinda hoping to be blown away by the next big God Of War, but it was more like "You played the last God Of War, well heres more of that..."

Still excited for it though. Not a big superhero guy, but that Wolverine game might be interesting. Probably a long way until release though.

I think you may have been overhyped. I never thought it would be a massive change but mostly more of the same. But the story in GOW was so good that this wasn't a problem for me. The only issue i had with the 2018 game was a lack of people and cities so hopefully we get to see more of those.

Around the Network

When I finished watching this I felt meh. Then a few hours later, I realised we got:

GOWR gameplay and it has more enemy variety and bosses from the looks. And sledging!

Wolverine and Insomniac with hints of Hulk, possibly set in the same Marvel Game Universe Sony is making meaning we might get Deadpool in there too and crossover stories. The bar Wolverine was in is famous in Marvel. Deadpool visits it often too. Wolverine trailer probably had more hidden details than people realised.

Spidey 2 with both MM and PP, Kraven and Venom. This will be insane.

KotoR Remake. Only the best ever Star Wars game ever made. This is Sonys big get to counter ES and it makes total sense. Launch exclusive made with the help of SIE and published by Sony. Wondering if this will be launch exclusive the same way FF7R was considering how pally Disney and Sony are.

Project Eve. I miss me some hack and slash and this ticked all the right boxes and looked insane. Was multiplat but now full exclusive.

GT7 looks amazing. As they said, they've taken all that was good from previous GT games and added it to this. Can't wait.

I realised why at first I thought this was meh. I didn't get any news or updates on:

Bloodborne
New From exclusive
TLOU2 ps5 version with fractions
New ND IP
Nothing on Resistance
Nothing on KZ
Nothing on Twisted Metal
Nothing on Infamous

It seems like Sony showed stuff, but has held plenty back. There was no news on PS+ and PSNow either.

Here is to hoping we get a PSX with more info by year end.

I just thought it would excite me as much as the last one did. It was just so much like the last GOW that it already felt like Ive played it.



This event is a curous case for me. There were some really cool things in it, but I just cant feel the excitement all too much. God of War is cool and Spider Man 2 is nice since I limed the first one fine enough. I just cannot shake the feeling, that something was missing.
Why not show Kena? I don't know.

It is still inside the North Mythology (and from the show it will be the closure), so I wasn`t expecting any real changes on the gameplay or scale. Perhaps if they make another mythology next you can see some serious changes.

My subjective score relative to expecations: 3/10. And I didn't expect much, I just wanted one single surprise 1st/2nd party announcement.

My score from a more objective standpoint: 7/10

+ Decent variety of games... I guess.

+ Insomniac are godlike. Naughty Dog is now a Naughty Puppy.

+ Project Eve shaping up well and looking better to my eyes than most AAA crossgen games.

- "Be vErY pRePaReD!!"

- Underwhelming presentation and complete lack of wow factor confirm to me that Sony made a mistake with the crossgen path. GT7, GoW and Horizon 2 should have been developed on 2-3 year old highend PCs that approach PS5's targeted specs. If that means they would have been pushed 6 months, then so be it. The price is worth it. Rift Apart >>>

- CGI trailers/teasers for games that are a ways off. Back to the shitty old habits I see.

- KoTOR!! Yay!!!... not really. Exclusives that don't require the funding of Nintendo/Sony/MS are a waste of resources. This game would have probably existed with or without Sony's involvement. A nice announcement, yes. But timed exclusivity wasn't necessary... and nothing was shown anyways.

PS5 will be a phenomenal console when all is said and done, but its 2nd year is looking to be the 2nd worse in console history in terms of nextgen exclusives. The slow generational transition killed all my early hype. PS4 is still one hell of a console that I'm starting to regret giving it away lol.

Did you had prior confirmation of SM2 and Wolverine before everyone else?

Where are you getting this from? I don't see anything anywhere online or in the trailer that confirms it's an exclusive... considering it was announced as a multiplatform for PS4, XBO and PC and as far as I can tell nothing has been said other than it's coming to PS5 now.



Overall, it was a good showing. Some exciting 3rd party and 1st party stuff. Just wish Sony spaced out there 1st party content instead of saving it for the end. Would have made the show way more interesting if they sprinkled it throughout and saved the Spiderman 2 announcement for the end with the Wolverine teaser to start the show.

Did you had prior confirmation of SM2 and Wolverine before everyone else?

Wolverine isn't a household "gaming" name, not the kind of surprise annoucement I was dying for, but you're right that it's a highlight, hence I praised Insomniac. I understand all the excitement from Marvel and Insomniac fans and am looking forward to it myself, but it isn't coming anytime before 2024 and the IP doesn't ring the same in my old-gamer ear as countless classic gaming IP's.

I know I'm letting my subjectivity bleed in, but there is a difference between a beloved "gaming IP" being revived and a "comics IP" being adopted. Countless Marvel superheroes are getting adopted left and right everywhere; doesn't pack as much punch among core gamers as Metal Gear being remade, Silent Hill rebooted, or Bloodborne getting a sequel.

If it is a stablished gaming name nothing would really surprise us since it would be a very expected sequel.

Games returning after a very long time wouldn`t qualify as household as well since well if they were they wouldn`t be discontinued for several gens.

I understand your point, as I would love to see syphon filter, BraLoD would love another LoD, etc. Perhaps it was just your phrasing that was little strange to me.
