    STALKER 2 is generating the most excitement for me, but I am glad about the return to The Pitt in Fallout 76.

    After years of their "Games For Windows" debacle, Microsoft hit the mark with Game Pass, and apparently are back with another winner, aren't they?

    At this stage, Swansong looks more interesting to me than Bloodlines 2, especially since they effectively removed all that was good about the latter.

    BotW2 please.

    Also was all of capcom just MH and RE8 updates/dlc? Seems like nothing really happened today.

    Why am I just now realizing PS is absent?

    Sony pulled out of E3 in 2019. I think their last one was that awkward TLOU2 tent change conference.

    Nintendo Direct description - featuring roughly 40 minutes of information focused exclusively on Nintendo Switch games mainly releasing in 2021.

    Therefore my guesses on what they'll feature
    1) Mario Golf releases in 10 days (June 25) so they'll probably feature this and play it during the Treehouse.
    2) Skyward Sword releases in 1 month and 1 day from today (June 16), so I bet they'll feature this as well, maybe show off the new Zelda themed joy-cons during the Treehouse.
    3) As we speak, Koei's Youtube channel is currently live and I believe they're showing off Samurai Warriors 5 which releases the day before Mario Golf (June 24) so I'm sure Nintendo will touch on this.
    4) Monster Hunters Stories 2: Wings of Ruin newest trailer featured yesterday during the Capcom panel but I'm sure Nintendo will incorporate into their video since it releases July 9
    5) Did Square Enix show off Neo: The World Ends with You during their presentation? Again, if they did, Nintendo will surely incorporate into their E3 video. This releases July 27.
    6) As we know Splatoon 3 releases in 2022, but I'm sure they'll have a small update to show off
    7) Something fun that isn't related to SS or BOTW2 to celebrate Zelda's 35th anniversary


    Longshots that would "save" E3 for me
    BotW 2 trailer with hopefully a Q1 or Q2 2022 release date
    Metriod Prime 4 trailer with hopefully a Q1 or Q2 2022 release date

    lol

    I think you've got some solid guesses. I do wonder if we might see a bit of Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires alongside hypothetical SW5 footage since that got delayed to "nebulous 2021 release."

    I'm hoping we get at least a tease of that new DK game supposedly in the works. At least something to show us how it'll differ from the DKC series. Also, it'd be nice if we finally got an update on Bayonetta 3. My long shot is Arms 2

    We're also going to get the final Smash fighters revealed for sure.

    Xenoblade 3? Or even just XX remake if they can pull it off. I still got to buy a Wii U if not.

    A plausible Zelda surprise could be Oracle remakes in the style of the LA remake. A "Zelda All-Stars" collection seems like too much to ask for- but I think an OOA/OOS remake would be better anyways.

    I don't know what I did in a past life to deserve even more GotG coverage but holy **** I am so sorry.

    Edit: Oh good, they accepted my apology and announced a new 2D Metroid.

    ****, and a new Wario Ware? This is a very good Direct.

    Edit: Ooo, and an extended look at SMTV. A very good Direct.

    Boy I was about to explode over that Advance Wars footage but it's just a remaster. Better than complete radio silence, I suppose.

    I was happy but disappointed that it was only the first game. Then they announced it was 1+2 and was very happy. 2's special commander abilities really made it a better game.

    SMT games are never on a clock. They're on esoteric morality systems they never surface the mechanics of.

    I’ve never played one. It looked fun though. No clock news is good to hear. I stopped P5 cause I couldn’t use my time wisely.

    Pick up the Nocturne remaster in a sale if you get a chance. It's got some creaky parts but it's a rock solid JRPG and should give you a good idea of what they're like. The other entries are on 3DS or the ever popular "Japan only."

    Edit: Did this guy on Treehouse just say the name we all agreed to never say again in a Metroid context? Now I'm worried.

    Almost forgotten but they also announced a Tekken character for Smash and a port of Fatal Frame 5 (though I don't know if I'd want to play that one without the Wii U GamePad features).
