Geekenstein’s E3 2014 Liveblog

E3 2014

Geekenstein’s Day One coverage of E3 2014 starts now! All day we will be liveblogging the announcements and gaffes, the new trailers all the way to Call of Duty, everything as it happens. All in real time, all for you. Let’s begin.

Alex Santa Maria June 10, 201411:53 AM

This has been Geekenstein’s E3 Conference Liveblog! We’ll talk about all these announcements and everything else for the show on a special E3 Edition of Nuts and Bolts recording this Saturday. Thanks for following along!

Alex Santa Maria June 10, 201411:52 AM

Yup, it was certainly exciting. Nintendo is over the tipping point for me, I’m interested in their system again.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:50 AM

Well, that was Nintendo. Really solid showing of games, especially emphasizing Wii U. Looking forward to more announcements throughout the week.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:45 AM

I’m not questioning any of the character choices for Smash Bros, but I can’t think of a single person who was asking for Palutena to be playable.

Alex Santa Maria June 10, 201411:42 AM

Seems like Nintendo is going to be announcing stuff all throughout the show like usual.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:42 AM

Splatoon’s coming in 2015. Reggie says that’s all? C’mon Nintendo, there needs to be Metroid.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:39 AM

This game actually looks pretty creative. I just can’t see it being very successful. I really hope I’m wrong because multiplayer games could use more than deathmatch modes.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:36 AM

Splatoon, a new online multiplayer paintball game with Squid Kids. Looks good, but I really thought it was going to be Sunshine HD.

Alex Santa Maria June 10, 201411:36 AM

OK. I’m definitely getting a Wii U now. Between Mario Maker and Kirby Canvas Curse and an excuse to buy toys. That is worth $200

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:35 AM

Alright, so Mario Maker is real and has tools for both “retro” and “new” style levels. Coming 2015.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:33 AM

X is now Xenoblade Chronicles X, coming 2015. Wonder how they can justify this being in the same universe?

Alex Santa Maria June 10, 201411:32 AM

KIRBY :D Canvas Curse was great.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:31 AM

Huh. A new Kirby Canvas Curse for 2015. Okay, I can get behind that.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:30 AM

Hyrule Warriors releases September 26, 2014. Happy birthday to me!

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:28 AM

I’m actually really excited for Hyrule Warriors. And it looks like playable Midna and Zelda have been confirmed.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:27 AM

Bayonetta 2 coming October 2014. Apparently comes packaged with the original game and you can wear Samus and Link clothes.

Alex Santa Maria June 10, 201411:27 AM

Another November, another 4 months of me playing Pokemon

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:26 AM

Bayonetta 2 starring British Liz Lemon.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:25 AM

November 21, 2014 for the Ruby and Sapphire 3DS remakes.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:24 AM

New Link design: Blue exercise shirt and long, flowing, golden locks.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:24 AM

Zelda Wii U coming 2015 and that’s all I can type because my fingers are shaking and I’m hyperventilating.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:22 AM

Woah. Woah. Woah. Pretty. So so pretty. Zelda on Wii U claims to have free exploration in an open world.

Alex Santa Maria June 10, 201411:20 AM

So Toad gets his own game, but Waluigi is still trapped in Tennis and Kart Racing.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:19 AM

Captain Toad Treasure Tracker coming Holiday 2014. Those parts were easily the best in 3D World, so I’m wiggling in my jibblies.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:18 AM

Captain Toad! Standalone title or DLC for 3D World? Let’s find out!

David Rhinehart June 10, 201411:18 AM

So Yoshi’s Wooly World look visually amazing, but Yoshi’s Island kind of sucks, so I’m not sure how interested I am.

Alex Santa Maria June 10, 201411:18 AM

Yoshi’s Wooly World is a great name for a video game.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:18 AM

Yoshi’s Wooly World coming 2015.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:17 AM

DICE sent people to Star Wars film locations for research. Nintendo made their devs knit Yoshi dolls.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:16 AM

This Yoshi game is actually starting to look like a worthy successor to Yoshi’s Island. Also proving that beautiful art trumps graphical horsepower any day.

David Rhinehart June 10, 201411:14 AM

Wait, I have to buy a Wii U, and a copy of Disney Infinity for it? Sigh

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:13 AM

Ah, excuse me: “Yoshi’s Wooly World,” which is somehow an even more adorable title.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:13 AM

Yoshi’s Epic Yarn? Please please please.

Alex Santa Maria June 10, 201411:13 AM

I’m kind of super excited about that. This is what has been missing from Wii U for me. A digital hat substitute I can collect.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:12 AM

I think Reggie’s human disguise is falling off and unveiling the sentient meat slab underneath.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:11 AM

amiibo is coming to Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros! Get excited or unexcited accordingly.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:10 AM

I don’t even question the names they come up with anymore. They could call it “Fungus Patties” and I wouldn’t blink an eye.

Alex Santa Maria June 10, 201411:10 AM

Ice-T Pours It ON!

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:09 AM

NFC toys are now called “amiibo.”

David Rhinehart June 10, 201411:09 AM

So Smash Bros still looks great and I refuse to get really excited for it. This is your fault internet.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:08 AM

October 3, 2014 for Smash Bros 3DS, “Holiday 2014” for Wii U.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:07 AM

“Don’t like the characters we put in? Make your own!” Starting to sound like the Conker “announcement” yesterday.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:05 AM

Miis have three varieties: Brawler, Gunner, and Swordfighter. 36 special moves in total.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:05 AM

Ah yes, forgive me.

David Rhinehart June 10, 201411:04 AM

Hey Christian, that’s not claymation, it’s Robot Chicken.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:03 AM

Looks like Miis are playable in Smash Bros… the dream of Reggie in Smash is actually real?

Alex Santa Maria June 10, 201411:02 AM

Looks like I’m a few minutes behind :p Ah well.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:01 AM

So, no new Mario today. But we do have an incredible Mortal Kombat-esque fight sequence between Iwata and Reggie.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201411:00 AM

Claymation Reggie? Claymation Link and Toon Link? This is wonderful!

Alex Santa Maria June 10, 201410:55 AM

And I’ll be here in the corner hoping that there is an F-Zero game somewhere in there.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201410:54 AM

We’re only a few minutes away from Nintendo’s Digital Event! Bandwidth permitting, I’ll be walking you through all the news as it hits.

Christian Mincks Christian Mincks June 10, 201410:24 AM

I will not be reading the leaks in order to provide a fresh take on the showcase. This is on-the-spot enthusiasm, folks!

Alex Santa Maria June 10, 20149:51 AM

Also, if you don’t want to be spoiled, don’t go on Twitter until after the conference is over. It’s ALL OVER social media.

Alex Santa Maria June 10, 20149:49 AM

SPOILERS: Several Nintendo Projects were leaked out by TIME this morning. So if you can’t wait, here’s the link. http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=834686

Alex Santa Maria June 10, 20149:48 AM

Good morning E3 enthusiasts! Nintendo starts in just over an hour and will be hosted by Christian Mincks.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:52 PM

I’ll be on this page in the morning for Nintendo, but for now, That Was E3. I really want to play Far Cry 4.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:52 PM

Sony is over. A great showing with more gameplay and revels than anyone else today. Great conference.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:50 PM

Uncharted 4 in 2015.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:49 PM

Full title is Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. “One Last Time” for this franchise.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:47 PM

Uncharted 4. No Last Guardian after all.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:46 PM

Scarecrow looks GREAT.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:43 PM

That shot of the open world Gotham City looks pretty great.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:42 PM

Batman Arkham Knight on now.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:42 PM

That dude just said Xbox on the Sony stage.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:40 PM

GTA 5 Next Gen on now. You knew that was coming.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:35 PM

Metal Gear Solid V Trailer. Same thing they leaked out this morning.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:34 PM

Last of Us HD is out next month.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:33 PM

The Last of Us on PS4. With a spoiler filled trailer. That’s… weird.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:33 PM

Ratchet and Clank HD will be the movie licensed game for the movie.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:32 PM

Ratchet and Clank is a Movie. I’m kind bored now

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:26 PM

Brian Michael Bendis now on stage.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:26 PM

Sony is making Powers, a graphic novel based TV show that will be exclusive to Playstation.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:24 PM

These fatalities look GREAT.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:23 PM

Looking good. Looks like they added some Injustice tweaks to it, and the new characters look great.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:21 PM

Mortal Kombat X up now.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:20 PM

Playstation Vita TV coming out for $99. Still a great price.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:18 PM

Playstation Vita TV is coming to the US. I’ve been waiting for this!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:14 PM

Playstation Now Beta will be up on July 31st.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:13 PM

Montage of F2P nonsense on now.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:06 PM

Project Morpheus demos are on the floor at E3.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:04 PM

No Man’s Sky looks really great. Top 5 games I’ve seen today.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20149:01 PM

My Internet is eating a dick, so I’m out. But Sony and Microsoft are neck and neck as far as I’m concerned. Both have strengths, both have weaknesses, and both will have EA Sports titles. It’s going to be a good year to watch most of these slip back into next year.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20149:01 PM

This video game is made by the same people that did Joe Danger. Just thought that was worth posting.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:59 PM

These planets and wildlife are supposedly procedurally generated, so every player can discover new wildlife.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:58 PM

No Man’s Sky. Finally.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:57 PM

Abzu, from the makers of Journey.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:56 PM

I have to say, Sony is flexing their muscles. Most of the Xbox stuff was known or 3rd Party. Most of the Sony stuff so far have been announcements or gameplay trailers.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:55 PM

Suda game is called Let It Die. Looks interesting. Great logo.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:55 PM

Best logo ever.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:54 PM

Broforce actually looks amazing.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:54 PM

Suda 51 game coming exclusive to PS4

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:53 PM

Shut up Dustin. Broforce is amazing.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:53 PM

Bad bro jokes, bro.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:53 PM

Devolver Digital’s entire lineup is pretty great on PC.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:52 PM

It is going to be a good year to be a human being who enjoys playing them video games.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:52 PM

Devolver Showcase now. BROFORCE AT E3 :D

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:51 PM

Tim was quick to post on Twitter that other platforms are coming for Grim Fandango HD. PC should be assumed.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:51 PM

That is a hell of a megaton

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:50 PM

Grim Fandango HD is coming to Playstation.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:50 PM

GRIM FUCKING FANDANGO HD REMAKE

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:49 PM

Oh man. Here we go. Double Fine.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:48 PM

Magicka 2 coming to Playstation (and I assume PC)

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:48 PM

NOT THE CAT

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:48 PM

Sony announces a partnership with Paradox, the creators of a bunch of strategy games and Magika.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:47 PM

Report coming in that Sumo Digital, makers of Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing, is making Little Big Planet 3.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:46 PM

Exclusive Physical DLC. That’s something else.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:46 PM

Disney Infinity! Where the fuck is David?!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:46 PM

Battlefield Hardline is still a Battlefield 4 Expansion Pack.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:44 PM

Battlefield Hardline trailer up now

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:44 PM

Last Of Us + Diablo 3. On Playstation. Weird.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:43 PM

Dead Island 2: Forget Riptide was a thing! Also, I’m pretty sure that’s Jack Black in there.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:43 PM

Dead Island 2, potentially starring Jack Black.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:42 PM

Dead Island is good at making CG Trailers

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:41 PM

This zombie game as a cool CG teaser trailer.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:41 PM

Dead Island of some sort on now.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:41 PM

Are we sharing letters from fans? From the internet? This isn’t going to end well…

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:40 PM

Gamers on your friends list will be able to join you even if they don’t own the game on Playstation.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:40 PM

What? Friends can join and play without owning the game? The fuck does that mean?

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:39 PM

THIS IS A FUCKING VIDEO GAME GUYS.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:38 PM

And now Co-Op.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:38 PM

Wingsuits, Vehicle take downs in first person, shooting while driving. Everything looks all set for an amazing Blood Dragon sequel.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:38 PM

That’s one hell of a large environment! Look at all those elephants I’m going to strap C4 to!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:37 PM

This game looks GREAT.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:37 PM

Far Cry 4 Game of the Year

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:36 PM

Graphics look great on these environments.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:34 PM

Weaponized Animals is a great phrase.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:34 PM

Far Cry 4 now. Something is coming. Enough to hold back a magazine cover.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:33 PM

Bloodborne is out in 2015.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:33 PM

And now back to Far Cry 4!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:33 PM

Another great transition as well. From Little Big Planet to the fourth beheaded man of the night.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:31 PM

Bloodborne is a really cool name for a video game.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:30 PM

Bloodborne is up now. More new IP. Project Beast no more

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:30 PM

New IP get!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:30 PM

Little Big Planet 3 will support all other Little Big Planet levels.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:29 PM

I don’t know who the hell is making this. The transitions have been horrid.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:29 PM

Little Big Planet is coming out in November.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:28 PM

So this might NOT be Mediamolecule?

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:28 PM

I read that as “Our Biggest Handicapped Adventure” and didn’t even do a double take.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:27 PM

The fake stage laughing is getting to me.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:26 PM

I feel like I’m watching old people try to make a call on a smart phone in 1999.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:25 PM

Still waiting for Sackboy to have his hamburger stolen by his personal Hamburglar.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:24 PM

Sackboy suddenly has as many friends as Sonic The Hedgehog

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:23 PM

Sackboy also has a Grimace

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:23 PM

Sackboy has a Yoshi.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:22 PM

Sackboy is psyched as ever.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:21 PM

Media Molecule lied. Little Big Planet 3 coming now.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:21 PM

Suddenly Little Big Planet 3

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:21 PM

Standalone Infamous: Second Son DLC featuring Fetch, the kinky neon sexy druggie from the main game.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:21 PM

Infamous First Light. Out in August.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:20 PM

Infamous Second Son DLC now.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:20 PM

Because it worked out so well for the Sega Saturn!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:20 PM

Entwined is Sega Saturned. Available now for $10 and its Cross Buy on Vita

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:19 PM

Time to hop over on Giant Bomb then.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:19 PM

Entwined has one stick for each character like Brothers. Hmm

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:18 PM

Giant Bomb/Gamespot is running great Dustin.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:17 PM

Up next: Entwined

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:17 PM

Spike’s stream is choppy as fuck on GameTrailer’s. Constantly buffering… and I’m not even using dailup today!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:16 PM

That jumping in and out of cutscenes looks pretty good.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:16 PM

People in the Sony Theater Experience seem to be complaining up and down about poor visuals on Twitter.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:14 PM

Also, Hello Zombies.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:14 PM

That is a weird candle/lantern hybrid that guy is holding.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:13 PM

The Order up now.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:12 PM

CrackerStation

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:12 PM

White Playstation 4 Bundle coming with Destiny on September 9th

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:11 PM

Destiny Beta comes July 17th on Playstation consoles

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:09 PM

I really wish I was excited for Destiny.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:08 PM

Hi Scarab

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:08 PM

Destiny is shaping up to be the best Halo game yet.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:07 PM

Hi Ghost.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:06 PM

Hi Guilty Spark.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:05 PM

Looks like we’re starting off with Destiny.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:04 PM

And it begins!

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:04 PM

Ominous music. Here we go!

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:04 PM

Sony’s tardiness is why Clash of Clans exists.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:03 PM

Greatness Awaits! #SonyatE3 #YesEveryYear

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:02 PM

There was some strong hints on the Spike stream earlier that The Last Guardian will be here in some capacity. My money is on a Farmville inspired social game.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:02 PM

Sony is now officially late. As usual. We’ll start as soon as they do!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20148:01 PM

Xbox usually has their shit together with live streaming apps, but they’ve always done better online stuff.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20148:00 PM

In most cases, this is why I ignore apps and just go straight to the source to save myself the headache. I was naive in thinking that things would be different this generation.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20147:59 PM

LOL. That sounds like every experience I’ve had with apps on Sony platforms.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20147:58 PM

Using the E3 app, I just clicked the video icon and it redirected me to a website that requires me to input my date of birth and watch through the browser. What the fuck was the point of the app?

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20147:57 PM

Of course, you can’t forget about the elephant in the room. If they don’t show some evidence of The Last Guardian tonight, there will be a lot of angry fans in the morning.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20147:56 PM

That sounds like a nightmare Dustin.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20147:55 PM

More sure bets include The Order, Uncharted, perhaps Project Beast?

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20147:55 PM

The E3 app on the PS4 is gimmicky as all hell. I can earn rewards redeemable on a Sony Rewards credit card! Coupled with the repeating stock clips of audience chatter (complete with smoker’s cough), they have a lot to answer for.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20147:55 PM

Rumors now popping up about Double Fine showing up at Sony’s press conference. Psychonauts 2 perhaps? You don’t do that for Costume Quest or Broken Age.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20147:51 PM

Sample of the quality from Sony’s movie theater experience from @Nymo on Twitter. You should be glad you stayed home. http://instagram.com/p/pC0KaOoT7Z/

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20147:32 PM

30 Minutes until Sony ends our day. Get your snacks ready!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20146:33 PM

I’ll be back around 9 with Sony’s E3 Show. Today should end with a bang.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20146:03 PM

Ubisoft is over. A lot of stuff that isn’t for me, but not a bad lineup for sure.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20146:00 PM

Rainbow Six: Seige is coming in 2015 according to Ubisoft. I’d guess 2016 at the earliest looking at that fake trailer.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:57 PM

and the fake Multiplayer chat in trailers is really not a great thing.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:56 PM

Also, this looks super CG, so this game must not exist at all.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:54 PM

Coming next, Rainbow 6 is back. Not my thing, but very cool. I hope it exists, unlike Beyond Good and Evil 2.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:52 PM

It is a “Puzzle/Adventure” game.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:51 PM

Still, any game using UbiArt looks great, and this is no exception.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:50 PM

ValientHearts: The Great War is now. Quite a neck snapping twist from Kinect Fitness to World War 1.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:43 PM

Ubisoft is still making Kinect games. I’ll be back as soon as they’re not talking about those anymore.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:42 PM

All snark aside, Creed:Unity looks very cool for one of those games.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:41 PM

E3 2014’s Beheading Count goes to 3.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:37 PM

This sure looks like Ubisoft Stabbing Simulator 2014. The lack of pirates in this game is bumming me out.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:31 PM

Ubisoft didn’t even change the script between this and Microsoft

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:30 PM

The Crew is out November 11th, 2014. Assassin’s Creed Unity is up next.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20145:29 PM

Assassassassin Creed: Unity

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:24 PM

The Crew: That other driving game from last year’s E3.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20145:22 PM

The Crew: “Without a single loading.”

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:20 PM

Emotion!

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20145:19 PM

The audio in The Division’s teaser explains the previous guy’s depressing tone.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20145:18 PM

This dude needs to dance himself into a less depressing personality.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:17 PM

From Dancing back to Tom Clancy’s The Division. Let’s see if they show the same footage from this morning like EA did.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:16 PM

Those that refused to dance were hooked into the Animus and stripped of all their memories.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:15 PM

Ubisoft has kidnapped a pack of teenagers from the local mall and they’re forcing them to dance.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20145:14 PM

I tuned out for a second. Why the fuck is everyone dancing with cellphones? Oh. It’s Ubisoft.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:10 PM

Just Dance is still a video game that comes out.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:09 PM

Ubisoft is Xtreme yo. They’re fucking shit to the max. #420upinthisbitch

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:08 PM

Hey look. It’s the worst E3 personality of all time back for her third year running.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20145:07 PM

Really digging Far Cry 4’s premise. Yet another ridiculously lovable villain.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:06 PM

Far Cry’s villans are still pretty ridiculous. I like it.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:04 PM

Far Cry’s own Julian Assange makes his entrance.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:03 PM

Far Cry 4 killed its trailer monkey. Not cool Ubi

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20145:01 PM

Far Cry 4 really starts off the show.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20144:55 PM

Urine jokes are involved.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20144:55 PM

Ubisoft begins with Rabbids something or other.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20144:48 PM

I believe that is gopher.CleanMyPC.biZ

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20144:46 PM

Do you know where I can download some RAM real quick?

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20144:30 PM

20 Minutes to go until Ubisoft everyone. In the mean time, I’ve bought more RAM for my computer. So that’s exciting.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20143:23 PM

First rule of live blogging. I need to update my PC’s RAM.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20143:04 PM

Next is Ubisoft! Probably a lot like this EA conference, but with more stabbing. Cya then!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20143:00 PM

EA seemed like slim pickings. Nothing but videos and then Battlefield Hardline leaking out early ruined their big reveal.

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:57 PM

So the EA press conference is over and there was nothing great there. Everything was prototypes, already announced, or the next installment in sports.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:56 PM

That was a weird aside.

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:56 PM

Guess what, you can’t register for the Battlefield Hardline beta because the site has crashed.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:55 PM

Adam Boyes from Sony at EA?

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:54 PM

EA has managed to take the concept of cops and robbers and make it look exactly like every other FPS on the market.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:54 PM

Battlefield Hardline Beta is coming today.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:51 PM

This looks alright. Nothing I’m super excited about, but it looks alright.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:48 PM

That’s fake Kaz David.

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:47 PM

Breaking news from Twitter! Kaz Hirai says: “EA has decided to show footage of games far from completion because thats usually how they release them.”

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:46 PM

EA, where instead of letting people speak passionately about the projects they’re working on for years, instead we let them read on script and sound super unenthusiastic or way too enthusiastic about everything.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:45 PM

Battlefield: Payday

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:45 PM

Battlefield Hardline better be a buddy-cop game.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:44 PM

Idris Elba is narrating their FIFA trailer.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:42 PM

If we wanted to feel the game, we’d go kick a damn soccer ball.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:42 PM

The FIFA dude they zoomed in on as they boasted their realistic new engine looked like a god damn big-eyed anime character.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:41 PM

90 Minutes to go by the way according to the schedule.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:41 PM

Don’t worry. With Battlefield 4 that they don’t NEED to finish their games before release.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:40 PM

I honestly couldn’t tell a difference between that gameplay and Mirror’s Edge 1. But that’s not a bad thing.

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:40 PM

EA, proving that they have absolutely nothing to show at E3 beyond reminding you that there is shit in development.

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:39 PM

That was some pretty great looking combat and Faith didn’t have a gun. Things look awesome.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:39 PM

#YearoftheConceptualPrototype

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:39 PM

Mirror’s Edge 2 is ALSO being labeled a conceptual prototype.

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:38 PM

I need more Mirror’s Edge so bad. I need it man, need.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:37 PM

Mirror’s Edge is coming up if your stream is still up. Mine is not.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:37 PM

Mirror’s Edge! Iconic red glove and all!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:36 PM

No EA. You don’t want to know what we all think.

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:36 PM

Substance is overrated. Why not just talk about a bunch of prototypes or early games while plants in the audience cheer to make it seem like any of this is news worth saying.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:35 PM

There are a lot of random developers talking in this conference in lieu of gameplay or substance.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:35 PM

I couldn’t hold back the snark. The dubstep in the background sealed the deal.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:35 PM

MOBA with a story. Please tell me how much the average MOBA player cares about stories.

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:34 PM

Oh hey, a MOBA. Now let’s see the voxel based survival crafting game.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:34 PM

I was going to make a snarky remark about MOBAs, but Dawngate actually looks somewhat charming. Cute, but it’s still just another MOBA.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:34 PM

Now EA’s MOBA! Someone will care! Hopefully!

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:33 PM

#LEGIONOFBOOM

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:33 PM

THE LEGION OF BOOM

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:32 PM

So that player’s arm just clipped through that other player’s leg and looked super fake. Let’s highlight it by zooming in on it while talking about how much more realistic everything is.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:31 PM

I wouldn’t be surprised if their next IP is a cross between Golf, Football, and UFC Man-rubbing.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:31 PM

Never before could you shove football players in a game! Except for NFL Blitz! Which we put out a few years ago and you all didn’t buy!

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:31 PM

The only Golf game anyone needs is Mario Golf.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:30 PM

Golf with weird courses! Now Football! This is EA!

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:30 PM

You could say that Criteron’s presence is… a burnout.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:29 PM

“Frostbite 3.”
*pause for applause that never comes*

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:29 PM

I have no idea what this game is, but it looks like an interesting spin on racing. Jumping vehicle to vehicle and being all in first-person seems different and appealing. Too bad everything is just a prototype. And yes, more Burnout would be good.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:28 PM

No title, no real info, just a whole bunch of nothing. Sigh. I JUST WANT A NEW BURNOUT :/

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:28 PM

I have faith in Criteron, but it’d be nice if they actually announced something.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:28 PM

It looks like a mess of ideas. And its yet another game they’re unable to show without screaming PROTOTYPE.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:27 PM

Actually, this is the first I’m seeing or hearing of this new IP. It looks… like an Early Access title.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:26 PM

His joke was funny because they leaked info for the sake of the joke.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:26 PM

Here comes Criteron.

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:25 PM

Fun? Fast? Speed? Need for Speed?

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:25 PM

VROOM VROOM BEEP BEEP SNOOZE SNOOZE

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:25 PM

EA Presents: NHL 15. The Tender Dance Between Canadians On The Ice.

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:24 PM

NHL games, presenting the strangest music selection for trailers since 2014.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:24 PM

I don’t hate hockey, it’s actually one of the few sports I can watch without a shotgun in my mouth. But every game looks the same and has the same “new” features.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:24 PM

I love Hockey. But it is not an exciting segment of a video game press conference.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:23 PM

Did previous NHL games not have physics? I’d rather play those games! WHY RUIN EVERYTHING EA?

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:23 PM

My cohorts yell at the only good sport, Hockey, for no good reason.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:23 PM

Let’s ramp up the EXCITEMENT gamers! WE GOT HOCKEY!

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:22 PM

And now, on to Ice Stick Soccer.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:22 PM

This dude is like the poster child for Urban Outfitters.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:22 PM

EA is hip and with it! The youth market loves feeling the FEELS with EA GAMES!

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:21 PM

Remember that time, like an hour ago, when Microsoft had an amazing press conference like we couldn’t believe and we hoped, just for a moment, that all the press conferences would be good? While this EA conference isn’t bad, its presenters sure are.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:21 PM

Is this guy seriously wearing a Bruce Lee with a turntable T-shirt? Wow.

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:20 PM

Oh shit, I forgot EA made sports games for a second. Now I know how this can be 2 hours.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:20 PM

(I still think that is super creepy)

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:19 PM

EA brings the rotting corpse of Bruce Lee into your Video Games with UFC!

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:19 PM

UFC: Bruce Lee Watersports Edition

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:19 PM

Smarter Sims. Weirder Stories.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:18 PM

Sims can take selfies. Welcome to video games.

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:17 PM

Yes, let’s demo The Sims 4 to an audience of mostly nerds with a meathead main character who loves working out and throwing parties. Great job EA.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:16 PM

Simulate every part of your fake life while you sit at your computer and rot away! EA GAMES: CHALLENGE EVERYTHING #TheSims4

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:16 PM

In The Sims 4, you can control your Sim’s heart. As in, you can make them heartbroken over the pointless Mass Effect talk.

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:15 PM

So they’ve made The Sims deeper for people who play The Sims. Cool. Still haven’t cared about The Sims since the second expansion for the first game.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:14 PM

LOL GIVE YOUR SIMS OBAMA EARS

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:14 PM

EA brought in some soccer moms for The Sims 4 demo.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:14 PM

(brb while I re-download The Sims)

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:14 PM

Great, The Sims. Gag.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:14 PM

I’m sure we will get 12 books and 3 social games before Mass Effect 4.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:13 PM

I don’t think they have a new Mass Effect game to show yet David. :p

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:13 PM

No they don’t Dustin. The end of Mass Effect 3 was so terrible that a new entry in the series has a lot to answer for.

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:13 PM

Stop talking about what you’re doing with Mass Effect in a vague, blue sky manner and tell me what the new Mass Effect game is.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:13 PM

Conceptual Prototype doesn’t make this seem like its a game coming out soon.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:13 PM

Mass Effect has been name dropped. EA wins E3 if they manage to announce anything other than a handheld social game.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:12 PM

Mass Effect is coming on now. Let’s see what this is.

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:11 PM

I’m pretty sure I own both Dragon Age games and haven’t touched either of them. As cool as Inquisition looks, it doesn’t look as cool as The Witcher 3 and I don’t have time for two expansive fantasy RPGs.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:11 PM

This game looks like it appeals to me. Which means that people who liked the RPG version of Dragon Age will be disappointed for sure.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:11 PM

Dragons are quickly becoming the WWII zombie shooter… and I’m alright with this.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:10 PM

Dragons are cool and stuff.

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:09 PM

Dragon Age: Inquisition, the Fight The Dragon of the AAA space.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:09 PM

“Hey kids, do you like memes? Troll face dot jpg!” – EA

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:08 PM

GOD DAMMIT WHAT THE FUCK WHO SAYS ‘All the feels’ ON FUCKING STAGE I HATE YOU SO MUCH EA

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:07 PM

I didn’t give a single shit for Dragon Age but adored the second. Inquisition, however, looks like all of the best parts of Lord of the Rings trilogy mashed together in a world more lovely than Skyrim’s.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:06 PM

Remember that Dragon Age footage from earlier? Here it is again!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:06 PM

This is a two hour broadcast everyone. Buckle in.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:05 PM

EA is broadcasting from inside a computer, so everything is shiny there.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:05 PM

It’s hard to read. However, it’s not hard to listen to and watch EA’s speaker. He’s like the bad guy from Lazy Town.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:05 PM

Don’t worry, all your favorite games from Winter 2014 will be pushed until then!

David Rhinehart June 9, 20142:05 PM

Why is his jacket so shiny? Suits aren’t supposed to look like that!

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:04 PM

Then spring 2015 is going to be the worst ever!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:04 PM

It said SEE MORE Dustin. Not Play.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:03 PM

So Battlefront is coming Winter 2015 most likely. Gameplay will come out in the Spring.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:03 PM

Spring 2015 is going to be the best spring of 2015 ever!

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:03 PM

Speeder level CONFIRMED.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:02 PM

Here’s what they paid all that money for. Star Wars time. Hoth level CONFIRMED.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20142:01 PM

They are talking about the Star Wars!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20142:00 PM

HUGE News. EA is trying to make a basketball game again this year. All the best for their efforts.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20141:53 PM

A lucky 7 minutes until EA. Star Wars, Mass Effect, Mirror’s Edge, and more Dragons Age, plus who knows what else.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20141:42 PM

A thunderstorm rages outside in anticipation of EA’s conference. That’s my explanation if I suddenly stop updates.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20141:33 PM

30 Minutes until EA! I might have gotten the time wrong earlier.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20141:27 PM

EA is said to have something like 6 new titles to show off, so it should be interesting.

David Rhinehart June 9, 20141:26 PM

So as much as I’m not looking forward to EA’s press conference, there could be something related to Mass Effect that could be awesome. So who knows? Maybe this will be the first year the conferences are awesome.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20141:18 PM

A good number of the Xbox Trailers are up on the official Xbox channel. https://www.youtube.com/user/xbox/videos

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20141:17 PM

Major Nelson is talking about the new Phantom Dust like its an HD Remake vs a sequel.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20141:12 PM

GameTrailers have tweeted and confirmed that a follow up to Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is coming in addition to RISE OF THE TOMB RAIDER. I refuse to write that name without capital letters.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20141:06 PM

We’ve got 90 Minutes till EA comes on. I’ll be on then, and post anything I see on Twitter in the meantime.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 20141:02 PM

Good conference. Crackdown, Phantom Dust, Sunset Overdrive, everything I could have wanted from the Halo announcement, and plenty of other decent stuff.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 20141:02 PM

Video games are going to make a drastic comeback this year. Everything shown at Microsoft’s presentation has been something special in its own way. Here’s hoping Sony can keep the trend going. Oh, and EA and Ubisoft but no one really expects them to. And they don’t really have to wow anyone to make money.

David Rhinehart June 9, 20141:01 PM

And yes, I guess that’s when I have to buy an Xbox One, the day before Fantasia comes out.

David Rhinehart June 9, 20141:00 PM

Oh man! I do need me some D4.

David Rhinehart June 9, 20141:00 PM

Cool, so now we have an hour and a half before EA tries their best not to bore us for the entirety of their conference.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:59 PM

Don’t forget about Fantasia!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:59 PM

I mean, I’d reboot the series as well after Crackdown 2. That game was NOT GOOD. At all.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 201412:59 PM

90 minutes of not Kinect.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 201412:59 PM

So it’s not a sequel, but a series reboot? After only one game? That’s a record.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:58 PM

90 Minutes of Games. Much better than last year’s showing.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:57 PM

IDK. Crackdown is still pretty great. I always want more open world insanity.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 201412:57 PM

My orbs are tingling for some super-powered hide and seek.

David Rhinehart June 9, 201412:57 PM

I’m not sure how I feel about Crackdown after Saints Row and Crackdown 2 happened.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 201412:56 PM

STOP THE PRESSES. NEW CRACKDOWN. AND THIS TIME IT’S AN ACTUAL SEQUEL!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:56 PM

I’ve missed that voice.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:56 PM

Here’s another Xbox blast from the past. Here comes Crackdown.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 201412:56 PM

NEW CRACKDOWN

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 201412:55 PM

“In my video game, I’m going to be a cool high schooler who listens to phat beats while turning into a Power Ranger to fight dragons!”

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:55 PM

Monster Hunter something or other is the vibe I’m getting.

David Rhinehart June 9, 201412:55 PM

I agree Dustin, this is a great press conference.

David Rhinehart June 9, 201412:54 PM

I have no idea what Scalebound is, but I know I want to play it.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:54 PM

Scalebound. Also known as How I Trained Your Dragon: The Teenage Years.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 201412:54 PM

Scalebound looks neat. It appears to be my 12-year-old self’s wettest dream.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 201412:53 PM

I have to say, Microsoft is truly blowing it out of the water this year. They flopped hard last year and this is one hell of a comeback I didn’t expect.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:53 PM

PlatinumGames release. What is this?

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 201412:52 PM

This multiplayer session needs more homophobic slurs!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:51 PM

Tom Clancy’s Third Person Shooting.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 201412:50 PM

Taking cover behind glass because video games!

David Rhinehart June 9, 201412:49 PM

Actually, all the AR stuff in The Division looks fantastic. I hope it’s actually intuitive.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 201412:49 PM

The Division’s in-game HUD and map system is basically Watch Dog’s done right.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:49 PM

The map reminds me of Dead Space UI.

David Rhinehart June 9, 201412:48 PM

That map in The Division is pretty neat looking, whether or not it’s useful is yet to be seen.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:48 PM

Phantom Dust and all the games being shown since Halo aren’t until 2015, so no rush David.

David Rhinehart June 9, 201412:48 PM

Yeah, if anything Microsoft’s E3 press conference has told me to pick up an Xbox One before Sunset Overdrive and Phantom Dust come out.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 201412:47 PM

Tom Clancy’s The Multiplication

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:47 PM

Tom Clancy’s The Division up now.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:47 PM

It’s such a unique thing that I’m glad its getting another chance. Microsoft giving me some sort of reason to get an Xbox One.

David Rhinehart June 9, 201412:47 PM

So yesterday?

David Rhinehart June 9, 201412:46 PM

I’m really glad they’re bringing back Phantom Dust. I didn’t play the whole game, but I loved what I did play and I’m really excited to play more. It’s just so weird that this is a property that is coming back.

Dustin Triplett Dustin Triplett June 9, 201412:46 PM

Suddenly I’m taken back to my middle school phase when I dreamed of dueling lightsabers while dressed as a member of 30 Seconds to Mars.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:46 PM

This is so dumb and so great. Phantom Dust is coming back!

David Rhinehart June 9, 201412:45 PM

Wait, Phantom Dust 2 is a real thing? Holy shit.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:45 PM

WAIT. Oh man. Phantom Dust is BACK people.

David Rhinehart June 9, 201412:45 PM

I don’t know Alex, I just want the press conference to end so I can pee. I get it Microsoft, you turned shit around. Now stop showing me while you hold my bladder hostage.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:44 PM

Ken Lobb LOVES E3. Killer Instinct Season 2 up now.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:44 PM

Come on David, they need to make the game first :D

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:44 PM

E3 2014 is the year of the severed head.

David Rhinehart June 9, 201412:43 PM

As exciting as The Witcher 3 is, I would rather just play it than see more. It looked brilliant from the moment they showed it and it only looks better and better each subsequent time. Stop teasing me dammit.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:38 PM

Witcher 3. CD Project is a big developer just by process of elimination now.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:38 PM

Oh I’m sorry, it’s called RISE OF THE TOMB RAIDER. What a name.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:37 PM

Tomb Raider 2 up now. I liked that last game enough to be interested in this one.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:36 PM

Threes on Xbox One seems like a super weird fit.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:35 PM

I see plenty of Steam release in this indie montage.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:33 PM

ID @ Xbox. Here comes the indies!

Limbo dev’s next game is up next. INSIDE is the name. I’m sure plenty of my peers will be excited.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:30 PM

Jeff Gerstmann has stated that he saw a Mouse prompt when getting a preview of the Halo collection. The Halo on PC dream is STILL ALIVE.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:29 PM

Halo 5 beta is also included. I wonder what this thing costs.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:28 PM

Halo Nightfall is Ridley Scott’s Halo thing, included in the Halo collection.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:27 PM

100 Multiplayer maps running at 1080p with 60FPS. All the maps are there.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:26 PM

Oh SMG Spawns. How I hate you.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:26 PM

Halo 2 Anniversary has all the maps. 6 maps will be remakes, but everything will be on the disc.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:24 PM

Halo 2 will see a full remake, Halo 3 and 4 will get upgrades. All the multiplayer games will be separate experiences, which means Halo 1 online on a console for the first time.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:23 PM

November 11th will see the release of Halo 1-4 on at least Xbox One.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:22 PM

Halo 5 Spartan looking on Master Chief’s old adventures.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:20 PM

This is definitely Halo 2

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:20 PM

It’s Halo time. Show me what you got Microsoft!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:20 PM

Ori. Seems like a game that might come to PC as well like Max and the Curse of Brotherhood. Coming in the fall.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:18 PM

Indie Games!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:17 PM

Conker is in Project Spark. That’s weird. And cool.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:16 PM

We’re getting pretty far into this show without any Halo. I’m getting worried.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:15 PM

Project Spark. Remember that?

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:15 PM

Oh Microsoft. Why are you bringing in celebrities. Have you learned nothing?

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:14 PM

Fable Multiplayer Beta is out this fall.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:12 PM

Official name of the Dead Rising DLC is Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition DX Plus Alpha.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:11 PM

This Fable story sounds like every other Fable story.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:10 PM

Who the fuck is Sterling? Did I forget something from a past Fable?

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:09 PM

Brad Shoemaker Tweet: How the holy living fuck did DEAD RISING 3 DLC turn out to be the best thing at E3 so far?

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:09 PM

Fable Legends now.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:08 PM

Fantasia Music Evolved and Dance Central up now. Dance Central Spotlight only on Xbox One in September.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:08 PM

Dead Rising 3 DLC Available NOW. Capcom taking more than a few pokes at itself with that one. Hope it makes it to the PC release.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:07 PM

Dead Rising 3 Madness Edition?

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:06 PM

Dead Rising 3?

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:05 PM

October 28th for Sunset Overdrive. Looks like crazy fun.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:04 PM

I didn’t. Because it was called Fuse. That’s how not memorable that thing was.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:04 PM

Gameplay footage of Sunset Overdrive now. Such an improvement over Insomniac’s last game. Remember Fuel?

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:03 PM

That trailer makes me want a PC release of that game. This is a good thing. “It’s a F*CKING VIDEO GAME”

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201412:00 PM

Sunset Overdrive on now. Very cool intro to their trailer.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:59 AM

October 7th Release for Dragon Age

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:59 AM

Dragon Age 3 is going to be open world ala-Skyrim. We can use more of that. More details coming at EA’s show for sure.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:57 AM

Dragon Age 3 now. Very curious about this.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:57 AM

Heads on pikes. Video games.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:54 AM

Leading a mob of angry villagers is a cool thing to do in a game.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:52 AM

Co-Op a big part of Unity. Seems to be some single player content for multiple dudes.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:51 AM

Assassin’s Creed: Unity up now.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:51 AM

This game looks fantastic. I can’t wait to play as that Cthulu looking thing.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:50 AM

Beta and DLC for Evolve is first on Xbox One.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:49 AM

Evolve is up next. Lets get into the REAL meat of this thing!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:49 AM

I do like gull wing doors on my cars.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:48 AM

September 30th for Forza Horizon 2

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:46 AM

And now the OTHER Forza game, the more arcadey Forza Horizon 2. Now with Drivatars!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:46 AM

Free DLC for Forza 5! Neat!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:44 AM

CoD Future looks alright, but nothing special. And speaking of that, Forza 5 has currently taken the stage.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:44 AM

Humble Bundle is running an E3 promotion. Pay $1 for a bunch of weird E3 themed digital goods. It’s like going to E3! But not! https://www.humblebundle.com/twitche3

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:40 AM

Worth noting that this is Sledgehammer’s first CoD game. So it could be an interesting release compared to the normal Treyarch or Infinity Ward games.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:37 AM

These Call of Duty drop pods just make me want to load up Halo 3 ODST.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:36 AM

Tweet from Double Fine: Kicking off E3 at the Microsoft briefing! Keep your eyes peeled for some fun DF news!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:35 AM

First up is 2014 releases, starting with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Not to be confused with Advanced Warfighter. Phil confirms that CoD DLC will be released first on Xbox One.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:34 AM

Phil Spencer is wearing SOMETHING on that shirt. Is it Assassin’s Creed? Or something else?

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:32 AM

A weird stage setup this year. Phil is out amongst the people.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:31 AM

It begins.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:28 AM

3 Minutes and scuttlebutt is flying around social media. Reports of Mortal Kombat, No Man’s Sky, and Assassin’s Creed showing up under the Microsoft banner. We’ll see VERY soon.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:21 AM

Also, if you weren’t up in the early morning, the Metal Gear Solid V Trailer is floating around the Internet. You could probably find it on YouTube if you looked. 9 Minutes!

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:18 AM

As usual, the pre-conference leaks are spilling all over Twitter. Season Two of Killer Instinct and an Achievement tracking app seem like Microsoft announcements that will be coming soon. 12 Minutes To Go.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:10 AM

Microsoft’s up first, starting in just about twenty minutes time. They have a lot to prove after last year, but they’ve made huge steps towards actually catering to gamers since then.

Alex Santa Maria June 9, 201411:03 AM

Welcome to Geekenstein’s coverage of the E3 2014 Press Conferences. I’ll be here all day watching the big events with you and offering my thoughts on the surprises or lack thereof.
