They have a bunch of Star Wars games coming, if you're big on those should make you happy.  I'm only interested in new Mass Effect at this point.

Seriously, wth with these leaks? After seeing EA's presentation I felt they gave up. It was uninspiring, as if they were presenting a PPT at college. All the delight they wanted to save for us was killed by the uncontrolled amount of leaks! 

 

This sucks. There is no reason to watch E3 if there are no special surprises coming up.  Where is the delight?! Even if I try to refrain myself from spoilers all the news site, including Gamespot have the leaked version of the new Microsoft console. 

 

/rant.

Maybe the companies should do a better job at controlling their "secrets".

 

Heard from a friend that Microsoft, Apple and Elon Musk are partnering up and will announce a revolutionary product..."game changer" doesn't even describe it accurately.  Believe that will be on the 16th.  :shiftyninja:

Frankly I don't know why anyone cares about E3, haven't for years.  Sometimes you'll see something cool but a lot of the big reveals are at other events now.

There is no point E3 anymore it better for companies to announce there product when they are ready to ship rather then years before hand.  Also retailers who are the show was originally designed for are that important.  I think long run E3 will die.  Better to do seperate events for individual companies.

I loved to see all the emotion and every game that was going to come up so I could start building some hype. It was about expecting the next cool game.

Quake Champions features a roster of unique characters, each with their own distinctive abilities, allowing you to fight the way you want.

Way to ###### on a franchise Bethesda.

All in all a fairly underwhelming showing.

 

Maybe I just missed it but did they say anything about the Skyrim remaster on pc? Are we getting the upgraded engine too? And if so are they going force us to buy it again? Because to me this should be a free upgrade for anyone who already owns the game.

I think PC was/is listed as well, so it's not console only.  As far as buying it again, I'd say odds are you probably have to, I don't know.  I'm not interested in the game though so I haven't been keeping up with it too much, my info could be off.

last time I remember being impressed with an event was all the reveals at the Video Game Awards.  And I'm not even sure if I watched it, heh.

 

E3 used to be the thing, but now it's between E3, PAX, TGS, VGA, Gamescom, and some dev specific events.

I agree, not sure if this has been happening more and more recently but this year I've at least noticed that there seems to be videos and articles about whats happening at E3 to the point there seems to be very little reason to actually follow it.

Ha with you there, I made the same comment in one of the E3 topics. 

 

Yes it may not hold the same excitement it did years back, but there's not denying that there are still a large number of announcements made and footage released. I started watching the EA one last night and after seeing they didn't really show anything new on Titanfall besides that leaked trailer I switched off.
