Well, it’s been a hot minute since my last post. I have been so so busy IRL that I have been neglecting my blog. BUT, I wanted to hop on and share my thoughts about E3 that just got over, while it’s all fresh in my mind.
Happy February! February is one of my favorite months, mostly because of valentines day, but also because where I lives tends to start getting warmer in February and it even gets to where I can almost break out the flip flops. I’ve never done a life lately, so I thought why not give it a go!? I’ve been pretty busy with work recently, there are a lot of changes that I’m having to prepare for, for the next harvest. But I’ve also been taking “work hard, play hard” seriously and been giving myself lots of me time.
It’s been another week, and I have been super busy! This will be my third post this week (pats myself on the back)! For this weeks 5 Fandom Friday I decided to change the prompt a bit. The prompt is suppose to be “5 TV shows I can’t wait to watch” but after thinking about it, there really isn’t anything I’m over the moon about, or that I’m not watching already. So I thought “5 Video Games I Can’t Wait to Play” was better for me.
It has been a magical five days, with highs and lows pouring out of E3, there are moments when I think all gamers rejoiced, lost their minds, and ones where we all fell asleep (Nintendo, I’m looking at you). But I think it’s incredibly important to really think about everything we have seen in past E3, and remember that a lot of the games we are seeing this year, on release could be something entirely different, my prime example of this would be Watchdogs. So much hype was around that game, the devs promised we would be able to do all these incredible things, and it was an utter let down.
It’s really summer now that E3 is upon us! This is my third year watching the conference and my first year tweeting it. I actually had a lot of fun tweeting, and watching others in the #E32016 hashtag, good lord was that thing moving on my tweet deck! I feel like the bar was set last year with Bethesda mic dropping Fall Out 4 on us, and that made the presentations for this year really bring it, or at least feel the pressure to.
So Far I’m really satisfied with the conference, I’ve never taken so many notes about games I’m interested in before. It seems like this year is about the gamer and what gamers want, which is a nice change of pace.
The following list will act as my directory, because there is just to much to cover in one post. So be sure to check it all out, there are links and videos galore as well as a bit of commentary from me.
I have an Xbox One, and actually like Windows 10, so I was actually looking forward to the Microsoft showcase. And it wasn’t that bad! But because of work I missed about the first 40 minutes which really bummed me out!
