E3 2019


E3s kicked off, with Microsoft showing an hour of trailers like last year.
And much like last year, I went "uhuh" as yet another zombie/war FPS was unveiled.

They also "unveiled" the next gen XBox, but in a "we are making one.. we can't tell you more than that." sort of way.

There were a couple of good looking games, and I like the idea of a ForzaLego "in principle", but .. again, like last year, it isn't making me want to go and pick up an Xbox any time soon.

EA showed something yesterday, involving Star Wars, but I really can't bring myself to give a flying fuck about EA, any more, so .. yeah, E3 starts here!!

It helps that it's BASIC..
..
... To a degree.

I'm now reforming age-old BASIC habits, and switching back and forth between that, my C++ AGameAWeek Framework, the Javascript Shoebox engine, as well as the PHP Foldapuz stuff..
... OH FUCK!!!

Although I've always had upto-date tech from $ONY, M$ & Nintendo, I really only care about Nintendo games nowadays.

Animal Crossing and Pikmin 4 are all I really want this year. Anything else is a bonus. Yes, there are other games I'd like more of (plus new IPs please Mr Nintendo Sir), I've got so little time at the moment that AC and P4 I will see me through to next year. And even further, if AC: Switch is anything liket eh other AC games...

Ubisoft have a lot of guns.

And some dancing.

But mostly guns.

I'd LOVE to play Watchdogs London without any gameplay. That looks like a lovely engine.

And now, apparently, Ubisoft are issuing Youtube takedowns of people's livestreams of the event, causing them to lose the ability to livestream further E3 events...

Some great games there, not many Nintendo games though...

AC delayed is fine, as long as they keep it awesome.

I absolutely loved The Witcher on PS4, hopefully it won't feel too cut back on the Switch.

And Zelda BOTW2? Please! Just don't keep us waiting 5 years (or whatever) next time.

Just watched about half hour of it on Treehouse.
Things like pulling weeds, and chopping trees, and grabbing stones, to help gather inventory, to then build things, looks like a great addition to the world of AC.
Campfire + more wood = Bonfire.

Also, you seem to be able to place any and all furniture anywhere on the island, so expect some crazy ass islands to appear!

The Nook Twins are there to buy and sell, so that's still happening.

You can have up to 8 IRL players, be it via multiplayer "the camera tries to stay between you" joycons or local multiplayer or online.
Um.. yeah.. looking good so far.

There's obviously lots they didn't show off, but what they did show seemed very AClike.

... I think!
