Literally all I've enjoyed from E3 so far was the Devolver Digital panel, which was hilarious. Everything else has been pretty forgettable or flaccid. Hopefully Nintendo and Sony turns this shit around.

The crowbcat and Rushnerd compilations for E3 will be good though. There was some direly stupid stuff in these conference, as always. Though I will miss Aisha Tyler being the Ubi spokesperson.

Sony coming up soon. Some things are likely to be obvious and some things have already leaked but let's see what they have up their sleeves.

That was overall pretty dull.

Monster Hunter World looks great, but it isn't a Playstation exclusive it's coming out for Xbox One and PC. Shadow of the Colossus is an amazing game, but this is the second time they're remastering it, plus the one of the PS3 came with Ico. God of War looks great no complaints. The Detroit game looks okay. The Spiderman game looks fun as hell.

Other than that, everything else was uninteresting/dull.

Wow, that was pretty much hot trash. If you wanted to underwhelm us, Sony, you did a great job.

Guess we'll break it down.

First thing I saw when I loaded up was an ad about watching TV on my Playstation, eh? I mean, I guess I could do that.

Uncharted Lost Legacy - Cool live performance led to audio issues so there was no sound in the trailer. Looks beautiful, but looks like Uncharted. Heavily cinematic and scripted like the rest of the series.

Horizon DLC - Looks cool. More Horizon but in a snowy setting. Good stuff except the audio was still out.

Days Gone - Audio fixed. Looks cool for what it is but feels very samey, especially within the Sony line up. Oh, and more zombies. Zzzzz

Monster Hunter World - This is the first time MH has been on PS in a long time (though it's coming to PC and Xbox as well). It's a massive graphics overhaul from the previous games and doesn't really look like monster hunter to me. I'm not really a fan myself but I'm not sure fans will be pleased.

Shadow of the Col - Oh shit. Didn't see this coming. Very excited for this. Other than the obvious overhauls it doesn't look like there's anything new. I wonder if there will be.

MvCI - Interesting to see them focus entirely on the story, and it didn't look bad. There were some characters in the trailer that were not in the leak list though most were. I'm still guessing that the characters not on the list will be early DLC. No gameplay shown though but I bet we'll see some at Evo. What the heck was up with Chun's face though? That was nasty.

Call of Duty - Typical fast and furious CoD

PSVR Stuff - Hey it's Skyrim.. again. Pretty and it is an environment I'd love to explore in VR, but the gameplay is looking real old now.
VR - Star Child - 2D platformer in VR. Why? Looks filled with typically blatant 3D movie "stuff pops out at you" moments
VR - The Inpatient - First person horror. Cool but looks so similar to the million games like it on PC.
VR - FF15 Monster of the deeo. Fishing. Huh. I'm sure some people are jazzed for this.
VR - Bravo Team - A light gun shooter. I know VR development has to be tricky, but VR is better than this.
VR - Moss - Very cute and cool with a guest turn by No Face. Not sure what the actual gameplay is like though

God Of War - The shield weapon was cool but the combat still looks a little janky. Some cool monster designs and environments though but I still don't care about GoW.

Detroit Become Human - Love the concept but the execution was fairly cringe worthy. Intriguing though

Destiny 2 - Hey, it's Destiny 2. PS exclusive content confirmed again.

Spiderman - Really not liking the costume now that I've seen it full body, and the combat looks extremely Arkham just with a Spiderman twist. The voice performance seems to be going for a typical Spidey performance but lacks that oopmh and charisma. Maybe it's just the demo they showed but the game looks way too cutscene and QTE heavy. The best part of the old Spidey games was the free flowing exploration and movement and they showed almost none of that.

And.. that's it. Seriously. 1 Hour.

As for my personal desires, they didn't even show or mention the Vita at all, even when showing a picture/video line up of their existing hardware. I can't say I'm surprised but they usually at least throw us Vita fans a bone and pretend it still exists.

All told, it wasn't necessarily that the stuff they showed was bad, it was all of the stuff they didn't show. There was no Last of Us 2 , no FF7 or Kingdom Hearts 3, none of that Kojima game, nothing from Fromsoft. Etc. Heck, there wasn't really a lot of Japanese support shown in general. They also totally shunned the indie side of gaming this year too except for an Undertale port (which wasn't even part of the main show).

I can't say it was a terrible showing because they did focus largely on the games and the games didn't look terrible, but it was extremely underwhelming.

I was actually kind of interested in Detroit before I remembered that David Cage is a bad writer and game designer. Not looking forward to seeing how he butchers a scifi trope I adore.

Other than that, Spider-Man looked good aside from the obvious Arkham parallels with the gameplay they showed. I was never a huge fan of the Arkham games for various reasons, and this just made me think of them.

Some of the VR stuff was questionable... Is VR a necessity for a Zelda-like game about a Redwall-ish mouse? Is it necessary for a game on a 2D plane like that one sidescroller they showed? Is there an audience for a fishing VR dlc for FFXV???

God of War I've never liked in the slightest but the trailer seemed kind of promising despite a few odd/cliched moments. Like everything was like "hurrrgh epic dark story" and then there's the Norseman/dwarf/whatever making wisecracks to Kratos. Also the ending with the serpent felt really cliche and unsurprising to me for whatever reason.

I hope Monster Hunter is an actual MH game and not the casualized open-world dredge-fest the rumors were discussing.

Also Destiny 2 wasn't too interesting. he Cabal are apparently now Warhammer Space Marines led by a dude who literally looks like a primarch. The trailer was also kind of bad in general, even though it weirdly got the most applause.

I think my overall favorite moment of the whole Sony presentation was when they cut from the MvC:I trailer to a disinterested fella looking at his cellphone. Same here, pal. (I will admit that Rocket getting Ebony & Ivory from Dante was a pretty fun moment but they didn't play into it hard enough to be great.)

For the first time I actually wasn't even happy with E3, I saw the Xbox E3 yesterday and was pretty much let down and for the other conferences didn't watch any of them.

The only thing I liked with the Xbox Conference was Original Xbox Compatibility support is coming that's it I kid you not everything else to me was MEHH.... boring when I saw and herd the original Xbox boot up screen I actually screamed with happiness, but not enough to get me to buy a Xbox One or the Xbox One X.

Xbox One X......................... No

Not looking forward to much except for Farcry 5 that's pretty much it.

The answer to all three of your questions is - yes. The great appeal of VR technology is its unrivalled sense of immersion. As a PSVR owner I assure you that the experience of being able to inhabit the same digital space as everything in the game is a genuine revelation.

So something like a Final Fantasy fishing game makes sense in VR. I can see this game becoming a real draw for VR users, a great place to relax after a long day. It's not so different to the emerging idea of VR tourism, amongst gamers and the general public. The chance to experience new places, both fantastic and from historical periods, is a compelling case for the potential of VR as a whole.

While even 2D games can be enhanced by a VR experience, with a greater sense of immersion. You aren't just looking through a screen anymore; you're part of the same world as the characters. Moss is a beautiful looking game, the interaction between the player's avatar and the mouse is going to be something special. When people look back on this first era of VR I think that Moss might standout as one of its most memorable games.

I'm kind of interesting in the PlayLink for PS4 games that they showed off during the "Pre-Show" - they're most likely going to be rather silly and absurd (like the "That's You!" Game). But "Hidden Agenda" seems like a game that may have promise for one or two parties/barbecues for when there are some non-hardcore gamers around.

Spider-Man's gameplay looked more fluid and it transitioned gameplay to cinematic clips like butter. I'm kind of hyped about the Spider-Man game (even more so after having seen Miles at the end of last night's trailer). The Arkham series felt too slow and chunky (even on a good desktop) - so I'm hoping it doesn't use a similar engine and focuses on keeping the transition as fluid as they showed in the trailer.

Shadow of the Colossus was absolutely a shock. The entire theater went into near-shock syndrome when that was announced. It really does look like an incredible remake, as if the original game wasn't impressive enough (even on a PlayStation 2).

The VR stuff seemed promising but I have both the PSVR and HTC Vive - I'm not sure if some of the PSVR games captivated me enough. I'll likely buy a handful of them to give them a go. The FFXV fishing game just had me in tears (of laughter). I sometimes wonder just how many times companies are going to continue re-using the same IP, game, and the same properties in various games.

It wasn't an amazing-as-hell E3 - most games were already announced and we just got a new trailer.

I like the PlayStation conference. Spider Man, God of War and Detroit: Become Human all look great. A graphically improved re-release of Shadow of the Colossus was a nice surprise. I'm happy to see that Sony is putting support behind the PS VR going into it's second year. But for all that, post show I did feel disappointed. They had shown stuff too early at E3 2016 and set up high expectations for this year, which they failed to meet with a few key titles not making an appearance and nearly no new IP. This resulted in a good line-up feeling like it's lacking. Also, I set myself up for disappointment by being far too hopeful for Bloodborne 2.

That Beyond Good and Evil 2 trailer was breathtaking. It nearly puts Ubisoft as my favorite conference of the show. But Xbox just manages to take that spot. Whilst many of their 'exclusives' are only timed, they put on a good show. Overall, I would have liked to have seen a few new IPs or for The Last of Us 2, Halo 6 or Death Stranding make an appearance, but I have enjoyed E3 2017.

And there went Nintendo's little E3 blurb. Seeing Metroid Prime 4 being in development is cool but it's hard to get too excited when all you see is a fairly generic logo. Other than that, it was pretty typical Nintendo. If you're already a Nintendo convert I'm sure you're super happy. If you're not, like myself, I don't think there was anything there that would change your mind.

Still reeling from Metroid Prime 4. Can we get another Trilogy port first though?

I didn't expect to see it at E3 but Gematsu posted an article about Sony filed trademarks for multiple titles (along with Shadow of Colossus prior to the event). It is a tough game to get a platinum for.

Do people spend 3-4 hours in one sitting or maybe more when playing VR ?

Monster Hunter is coming back to Playstation (it's also on Xbox and PC)-- this series is one of the system sellers. Sony can move a lot of units when this game is released.

Anyone here got any information about whenever if Microsoft is planning to release the Xbox One X in Japan or not ?

Most I can usually do is around 1-2 hours. After that, the immersion starts to wear off and I feel less "into" the game for some reason. I don't know about anyone else, though.

All websites I see mentioning the Xbox One X states that it releases worldwide on November 7th. They probably won't ship too many to Japan if they are releasing it there. The Xbox One has such a low adoption rate in Japan that it probably isn't worth it. On top of that, the Xbox One X doesn't even have much backing from Japanese developers (not like Xbox ever has.. but you know).
