Disappointing that there was no Metroid Prime 4, Bayonetta 3, or third party surprise. However Fire Emblem looks awesome as did Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. I really liked them showing all that stuff for Ultimate. That mech game looked really cool and I’m really looking forward to the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 dlc. Super Mario Party games are always fun. Kind of a short conference overall but there weren’t any cringe moments so I thought that it was pretty solid nonetheless. I think that I’d rate it a B-. Was hoping to see a bit more.

Seriously though, no Metroid Prime 4 and no new Animal Crossing?

At least the Splatoon 2 Octo expansion is out this summer.

Anyone tempted by it? Together with the games existing single player content it will then have about 20 hrs of single player content. Maybe pick up a used copy of Splatoon 2 and buy the DLC?

​Retro first-person shooter Dusk coming to Switch

I read this and thought that Retro Studios had a new FPS IP for the Switch....then I click on it and get nothing but disappointment.

Been reading up on EG's live feed from the Nintendo direct.  These things are the best thing about E3 if you ask me

To be read from bottom to top:

Eurogamer said:

17:22

Anyway what did I miss?

17:22

It also just impresses me that he's got a TV with five HDMI inputs.

17:22

This was pre-Switch.

17:22

florisvaneck says:

So his Switch's HDMI port switches (random) I suppose Martin?

17:22

I don't know why I enjoy that so much.

17:21

Because obviously V for Vita also equals 5 in roman numerals.

17:24

Then he'd put his PlayStation Vita TV in HDMI 5!

17:21

PS3 and PS4 speak for themselves really.

17:21

Xbox One in HDMI 1, which makes sense. Wii was in HDMI 2 - the two 'ii's was the reason it was there.

17:20

And gave some insight into how he goes about labelling and deciding on what console gets what HDMI input.

17:20

Is when he was interviewed about his home AV set-up.

17:20

My favourite Sakurai story, which no-one will care about but hey I know nothing about Smash so have nothing to add to what's going on on-screen at the moment.

17:19

The ever youthful Masahiro Sakurai takes centre stage to run us through what looks like - as we expected - an updated version of the Wii U and 3DS versions of Smash.

17:18

And it's into Smash, which I imagine will take up the rest of today's presentation.

17:17

Shinya Takahashi is up next for an update from Kyoto.

Eurogamer said:

17:38

On the plus side I think we can probably now review the game after this Direct showing.

17:37

This might be a bit too much detail though for a general Direct. Couldn't they have given this its own Direct?

By Martin Robinso

Eurogamer said:

17:44

Which also explains why Daisy is in this too.

17:43

I think it was after seeing The Force Awakens and really enjoying it Sakurai named her after Daisy Ridley.

17:43

Did you know that Ridley is so called after someone associated with a famous sci-fi movie series?

17:42

It is Ridley.

I just watched the RE2 trailer again...this one seemed a little longer, I didn't see MR X the first time! Holy shit he looks badass!!! Also, at the beginning there's a PS1 on the table with the mouse, and it's the og controller without the analog sticks. LOL

Awesome.

There's actually a pretty solid lineup of big games releasing by the end of the year....kind of took me by surprise as I was skimming a release list. At least 10 or so from September to new years that I really want. Then next year starts out with Resident Evil 2 and Kingdom Hearts 3, fuck yes!

I said it back in 2000, and I'll say it again; it's a good time to be a game player.

Yes, lets compare thawing relations with a nation with a population of 1 billion to that of a nation of 24 million.  Lets face it, North-Korea is the oily kid in the back of the classroom that nobody likes or wants to play with because all it ever does is threaten with squeeling to the teacher, but who'll sometimes get some attention because it has cool toys.

As far as nuclear threats to the world go, I'd put North-Korea very much at the bottom of the list.

I'm not suggesting it's an identical situation at all. But there are certainly some similarities. For a start, Nixon ended up as a bit of a maverick dickhead who, in spite of his scandalous presidency and corruption, achieved quite a few things that were probably good for all involved re. Russia and China. Whether this will be true of Trump with North Korea time will tell, but I see no reason why one should assume it can only go badly. More importantly, the China of 1972 had had a pretty rotten record. Indeed, it needed that meeting much more than America did, just as North Korea needs this more than America does today. Was it a basketcase in the same way as North Korea is? No, but it had certainly been a massive basketcase for a long time in its own right. There also wasn't a new leader potentially looking to make a name for himself by breaking with the old guard. The fun of historical comparison isn't finding things that are identical, and nor should it be.

Anyway, it seems like this is more positive move than the way America is presently dealing with their other pet bogeyman, Iran. And why isn't North Korea in the consideration here? This is clearly something they want. Just because they're dicks, doesn't mean their feelings shouldn't be considered; particularly if we look at this in terms of your classroom analogy. Nyaa

North Korea (allegedly; I don't know how reliable Nicholas Eberstadt is, and I think I got this from him) was first on the list of countries Bush 2.0 wanted to invade to embellish his legacy with, but the military pooh-pooh'd the idea. So perhaps the plan is to leverage a situation through diplomatic influence in which the military would be happy with an invasion taking place. It's certainly the go to country to be frightened of when terrorists or Middle Eastern dictators aren't killing enough people. Not only that, but North Korea is itself an aspect of Chinese-American relations.

So far as I can see, to ignorant people like myself, there's two more ways of interpreting the whole thing: denuclearise North Korea (it's doubtful they'd actually do that anyway; so it's also possible that this is the first step towards war with them: exhausting all other options—there are three more ways of interpreting this), so you can institute regime change in a manner that pleases China, or simply position yourself as the country that fostered the opening up of North Korea through your diplomatic prowess. The reason we're all talking about this is it's a pretty ballsy move, and to most of North Korea's neighbours this isn't just about nukes. I'm interested in all divinations, though.

I agree completely: the only country to have used nuclear bombs outside of a dick measuring contest is America, and the only country to still use nuclear weapons (depleted uranium) is America. Personally I don't care about nukes, and have never understood the fascination with being squeamish over certain forms of mass murder, but not others. Particularly when many acceptable methods of mass murder are usually pretty horrible ways to die, maim many more people than they kill, and leave vast areas of land unusable, while continuing to kill and maim the poor saps who still live there due to having nowhere else to go for decades afterwards.

I really watched hardly any of the videos but E3 seems very meh this year.  RE2 and TloU2 looked great but that’s about it for me.  No Metroid Prime 4 ?  For shame, Nintendo.  For shame.

Kind of bummed that CP2077 is a first person game.  Not that I was all too excited about the game in the first place, but I prefer third person games.
