I watched most of E3’s press conferences yesterday, and I was not overly impressed. Square-Enix should have just skipped it, their 30 minute presentation pretty much only announced a new Dragon’s Quest game, and Ubisoft hit cut and paste from last year. Which left Sony, and while Sony’s show was at least interesting, and it had this awesome trailer:
The rest of it was stuff we expected or that we had seen before, but with Sony’s amazing production values that at least made the show worth watching.
I am not sure what happened yesterday, last years pressers were so good, but this year, barring Microsoft and Bethesda on Sunday, the shows could have just been boiled down to a couple of new trailers. It would have saved us all a bunch of time that is for sure. Oh well, at least there are a ton of good games on the horizon, and I can’t wait to play them.
