    What's with all the idiots in the chat claiming Ghost of Tsushima looks too good to run on PS4? Don't they know Sucker Punch is owned by Sony? They ONLY make PlayStation games, of course it'll run on PS4.

    I’ll always find it strange how anyone can watch the TLOU2 trailer and not have their jaw on the floor the entire time. The most impressive trailer to come out of E3 imo, if the game plays exactly how it was showcased, it’s going to be even better than the original.

    I'm with Jeff. Death Stranding just seems increasingly lame to me, and a case of Kojima's ego being completely unleashed so he could make something with Hollywood people in it.
    There's the obvious caveat that it's early and we still don't fully understand what is going on, but all of the "gameplay" they showed looked very uncompelling.

    Hey i recognize you the guy with the Garbage Shirt, i remember you were the guy that made the Test for Tekken 5 back in 2005 in Gamespot, and i though it was an awesome test and even the best Test on any video game website of back then.

    The chat for this stream consisted of kids who play to much COD, literally turned into one of the cringiest things i've ever seen once the last of us showed up.

    Jesus. Sony has lost the plot. No wonder people thought MS had a better presentation. Sony is now doing all the self-indulgent, non-game shit no one cares about that MS did around the X1 launch era.

    Nothing seems to excite them from any conference, they seem so much more cynical than they use to be.

      Hiroko Takashiro Agreed, I assume they've been in the game too long. Seen it all, done it all. Probably time to pass the torch.

    Thanks for the videos but just like the pod casts...i can't hear this stuff if I'm doing anything other then sitting around with head phones on. Please just bump up the overall volume.

    As weird an idea as moving everyone from one place to another for the presentation, that Last of Us venue was absolutely beautiful. Great atmosphere.

    they cranked the volume to 11 for the kissing scene in the last of us so you can hear all the sloppy mouth smacking

    The games they had on display looked amazing. Sony crushing it with the exclusives. So they "won" in that sense. But the show itself wasn't great. The pacing was terrible and that interlude they had after The Last of Us wasn't great at all.

    Microsoft WINS this E3 even if most of their games are multiplatform, Sony was just boring this year

    A case of less is more for me. Nothing on the Xbox conference looked as exciting as Ghost, TLOU2 or RE2.
    As someone who really appreciated Sony’s first party software in the late PS3 days (when it seemed to offering them almost no advantage at all) its good to see that commitment to funding quality studios long term paying off in spades now.

  • Thomas

    i'm probably reading too much into it but could that trover game somehow be referencing giant bomb quick looks? specifically when that bathtub guy says the strangely worded "we're here at e3 to take some looks at this new game."

  • Cage Fury
    Cage Fury 8 months ago

    Conference pacing was super weird, Death Stranding and Last of Us were both a little disappointing, although both were visual outstanding. Ghost of Tsushima, Spiderman, and Control looked amazing. Also I didn't expect Nioh2 to be announced so soon.

      Weight? In the trailer she kicks off a dude who is laying directly on her and who is twice her size... in real life that would never happen. Sure could she out smart them? Be faster than them? yes 100% the first game showed that, but going toe to toe with a dude who is twice her size... that doesn't work. Now I understand its a video game so whatever... maybe she was bitten by a plant zombie that gives her super human strength.

    • Rob Wills

      Narrative Matters it works like this, small therefore weak girl can’t beat heavier therefore healthier (more hp) and stronger (str) guy, come on! These are video games for Christ sake! My disbelief is unsuspended. And to top it of she’s supposed to be fighting these mens whilst also carrying the weight of her lesbianism on her mind. Will they explain how a regular woman’s mind could possibly juggle such disparate and abstract concepts in the post-a-pocalypse without turning the game into a crying simulator?

    God I hope they have time to change that “dazed” effect that happened at least 3 times during spiderman gameplay. Way too over the top.

    left-right audio channels are for sure swapped, noticeable once the last of us footage starts. Did Sony broadcast it that way? Oops!

    I notice Naughty Dog seem to be inspired by MGSV's gameplay
    I'm seeing quite a few specific animation/gameplay similarities come through in the TLOU gameplay, which is smart of them, MGSV is still like one of the best playing games out there so taking notes from that is a good move

  • DaNes200581

      I'm really curious how the gameplay is gonna work. Doesn't look like a normal hack and slash or anything like that.. so.. wonder how it will play. I'm sure it'll be great, but we'll see

    The most games I want to play, yet the worst conference this side of EA. The structure of this was just so bad.

    • Bret Reed
      Bret Reed 7 days ago

      Yeah, but what's more important, an entertaining 1 1/2 hour show, or a bevy of awesome titles you want to play?

    • elevown

      He was absolutely right - the conference was utter shit - yet it showed some great games. Everything between the footage was bloody awful.

    EA 0/10, Microsoft 5/10, Bethesda 5/10, Square Enix 1/10, Ubisoft 5/10, Sony 6/10. Nintendo can show a screen grab of Prime 4 and they have this in the bag.

    • SufamiDan
      SufamiDan 8 months ago +1

      Neon Noir not fanboyism, mate. Just game preference. None of the games outside of DMC5 were of interest to me and even that game looked very awkward to my eye. The big hitters on Xbox traditionally do not appeal to me. I don't like Forza, Gears, Halo and co.

    • Neon Noir
      Neon Noir 8 months ago +5

      Fanboyism: the post
      Microsoft presentation was way better but they also announced way more first party games(Halo Infinite, Gears 5, Forza Horizon 4, Battletoads, Cuphead DLC) whereas Sony announced nothing.

    • Kiwi Gooner

      mrsmi1ey aye but from a personal point of view not one game on that show was of interest to me. Sony gave us Resident Evil 2 Remake, that was enough to get a 6. Every show thus far has been absolute shite though. Quite possibly the worst I can recall in my time. Nintendo still has a chance to save it though.

    • mrsmi1ey
      mrsmi1ey 8 months ago +29

      Microsoft was easily the best of what we've seen so far. They basically just showed games the entire time, 15 of which were exclusive, and most of those were coming to Game Pass. The rest of the shows have had so much in-between bullshit. This is the second year in a row MS has focused on almost nothing but games.

      Blorp Weatherby 8 months ago +1

      It's almost like they've made a Last of Us game already and it's not hard to imagine what a sequel to that would be. Unless they have some huge sweeping gameplay changes to iterate on the original, which I doubt, it's just going to be more of something I don't like. Also go back and watch the original Last of Us demo and compare that to the final game. Not buying that it's going to look this good when they've done the scripted "like this, but not as cinematic" thing before.

    • Bacon Is Life

      So you're assuming what the final product will be by only watching a 7 minute snippet of gameplay? Nice dude.
