    If Fable is really being shown it's the show stopper at this point.

    Edit: And that would be a no.

    Well that was easily the best show so far. I could imagine purchasing some of the games being advertised, and at no time did I long for the embrace of death to save me from the Embracer Group.

    After two years of no in person E3, they're probably going to go all out for next year's event.

    You might be wrong; there's pretty legitimate discussion about whether in-person E3 press conferences ever happens again. The ESA might fully transition to a fan event to try and make some revenue (thus finishing the floor show transition that was underway before the pandemic), but is currently getting in fights about the future of streaming negotiations.

    The ESA is a gross corporate lobbying organization and does gross corporate lobbying. I don't know why people were so surprised by that.

    Oh, not surprised. Then again, why would I be, having watched the Jimquisition?

    I imagine they’ll at least do one more. But yea, it’s not the premiere event it once was. Especially as it seems like all the major studios are pulling out and doing their own thing.

    I actually see something similar happening with San Diego Comic Con, where it no longer will be the center of the pop culture universe, as more and more film studios seem to be wanting to do their own thing, and are slowly pulling out of SDCC to make their own big announcements.

    Yeah, corporately there seems to be a sense of : "And we need you because?"

    This is actually more painful than those Embracer Group conferences because I like some Square Enix games and they seem to be punishing me for that.

    Okay, I'm into this Team Ninja remake of FF1 or whatever they're going for, even with this Nomura nonsense and everyone saying "Chaos" so much it has become meaningless.

    Still, on the whole that was... extremely dire.

    Everything got sacrificed to Disney's money. Gotta spend 30 minutes showing off the middling quality licensed title. Gotta waste time talking about the old Avengers game. Just... ugh.

    I fully support all trailers or the rest of this week using Holding Out For A Hero for their music. He-Man walked this week so that everyone else could run.



    And Replaced is doing some great work with the pixel art animation. A lot of games have been going for that low-rez, old-school PC pixel art style that I've just never found appealing. But this is going into far more detail leaning towards the SNES style while maintaining the proportions of that old PC style that really works. Combining it with a hyper-smooth frame rate for, especially, combat animations really makes it shine. The environmental work and use of parallax effects also add a shine of depth to it.

    Very intrigued by Starfield. Can't wait for more of a look at that.

    That Final Fantasy Origins game looked so bland. Some were saying it had a "so bad, it is good " vibe, but I didn't see that in it. I was hoping for some FF16 news, but from what I gathered on the net, there is a better chance of seeing it whenever Sony does their State of Play event, at TGS 2021, or some other event. Of course, that is assuming that they (Square) even feel like showing anything this year. Fingers crossed because I really liked what I saw in the trailer; the game's website also struck my fancy with all of the lore stuff.
