No shows from Metroid and Yoshi after 2017's video teases. Don't worry tho, HELLA Smash Bros.
Ok, so there were a few games that Nintendo showed us that was alright. The most exciting for me was Super Mario Party. Overcooked 2 looked like it could be fun in the short term. And Fortnite was finally announced for Switch and is available for free download today. A few other games, Fire Emblem, Xenoblade, etc. etc. This was a very weak presentation from Nintendo.
Then we have 25 minutes of Smash. This is great news for fans of this game. It is the Ultimate version, which includes every single character from every Smash game. It is the largest video game crossover ever. Speaking about this 25-minute video, this is a perfect example of how I wish every game demo went for E3. Here’s our new game. New features. New characters. Things that used to work like this, work a different way now, here’s what it looks like. The game director goes on and on about the game and its features. Then ends with a release date Oh how perfect all of E3 would be if it was just full of videos like this one below.
Thanks for reading!

Please read my comments below before leaving a comment.
Almost every game Ubisoft showed today was going to have a beta you could register for. You can definitely try it before you buy it with most of these titles. That is probably a good thing since nothing really stood out for me here. I was hoping to see something new that I could be excited for, but that didn’t happen. I was looking forward to seeing Skull and Bones, but that game looked unfinished and not at all fun. The best looking game was Beyond Good and Evil 2, buuuuuut even in the gameplay clips of this game it looks just like every other action beat ‘em up. Around 6:35 you can see the combat.
Here’s the entire clip from the press conference for Beyond Good and Evil 2.

My firsthand account of the Sony PlayStation Press Conference E3 2018.
Playstation had the strangest press conference this year. The first part was in a tent designed to look like a level from The Last of Us Part II. I’ve been to these press conferences before, and everybody was complaining it was hot in L.A. I would not have tolerated one droplet of drip during any of these shows nowadays. There is no need for separate tents, huge dance numbers, dirt bikes, 100 consoles on stage for no reason. WTF. I strongly believe the people planning out the press conferences don’t actually even play video games. Anyway, The Last of Us Part II looks like it’s going to be as much fun as the first one.
Video Game Company Sucker Punch Productions who previously developed Sly Cooper and the Infamous games, showed off their new game. Samurai Batman!

Check out my impressions of EA's keynote speech inside.
So Microsoft's keynote was pretty disappointing; we all know it's true. Unless you care about watching Kinect, there was very little that was interesting. So then came EA's keynote. Was it better than Microsoft? For the most part, yes.
EA opened up with a new remake of Hot Pursuit. I have to say it: I wasn't that much impressed by the demo. It's from Criterion, and it certainly looked like it; the game really did appear to have a Burnout feel to it. The graphics do look impressive, but I just can't get over the fact that the game looks more like a Burnout game than a Need for Speed game. EA boasted that the game was going back to the Need for Speed roots, but I just didn't see it in the demo.

Major, Major news coming from Bethesda. Fallout 76 is online! Starfield is real and they are working on it and a new Elder Scrolls.
Bethesda started the night off with an Andrew WK performance that got the crowd all riled up for the big show. I’m certain there will be some great MEME’s coming from that part of the show. Then they showed trailers for Rage 2, ESO, Doom, Quake, Prey and Wolfenstein. All of which can be seen on the Bethesda YouTube Channel. https://www.youtube.com/user/BethesdaSoftworks
Fallout 76 is an online game, but don’t worry, you can also play solo. However, Todd Howard says it’s best to play with friends to get the best experience. Check out the trailer.

Nintendo just announced that their press conference will be streamed online this year. This can't have anything to do with G4TV absolutely falling apart does it?

The original Jimmy! Check it out!
Jimmy screams about Too Human, Little Big Planet, Street Fighter IV, Fallout 3, Gears of War 2. Highs and lows from Sony, Microsoft and the Nintendo press conference. Video clips, drinking, cursing, Jack Palance is dead smack! All here in this Vlog ... Don't be a Jimmy!
My impressions of the Ubisoft keynote speech.
When Ubisoft started out their keynote, I wasn't quite sure what I was watching. I thought maybe I'd changed the channel and turned on the Stoner's Channel - but I hadn't; Ubisoft was just showing off Children of Eden, a super-trippy game that is supposed to be (I think) the spiritual successor to Rez. I might have been impressed, but I can't tell, because I had no idea what I was seeing. It was trippy - I'll give it that - but all I saw was some guy wailing his arms around and colorful blocks doing crazy things. I don't know about this Ubisoft; I mean, it was cool on the PS2, but really?
Next they showed Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood with a demo that looked amazing. Mind you I've never played either of the first two Assassin's Creed games, but this demo automatically made me want this game to come out already. There was just something about it that was so cool looking. In my opinion it seemed to have a bit of a Prince of Persia feel to it with the acrobatics and combat, but that's certainly nothing bad at all.
Then they showed Shaun White Skateboarding, which - okay, I really like the concept of this game; I think it sounds really cool to skate around and change the world. I think this has the potential to be the next-gen version of what a really cool Tony Hawk game could have been. To be completely honest I'm quite excited about this game, and that's saying a lot since I don't care much about skateboarding games.
Battle tag - what? That's not a video game at all. I'm not even really sure what to say about this - but I can only assume that you wouldn't care about it if I knew how to explain it. Where is the 'video' part of video game here?
Innergy? Wait a minute - where have I seen this before? Oh, I know...this was the Vitality Sensor that Nintendo showed off last year. Yes, that's right; you put it on your finger and it reads your vital information. Mind you it doesn't look there's any real game here. Where the battle tag crap lacked the 'video' part of video game, this lacks the 'game' part of video game. Okay, so moving on...
Next Ubisoft showed a couple Kinect games. One was Motion Sports, which dare I say is Wii Sports for the 360. I literally saw nothing here that impressed me, and nothing really that looked new at all. I'm not sure why Ubisoft expects anyone to care about this, especially since Microsoft had a nearly identical game they showed during their keynote speech. I'll pass.
Ugh, another fitness game?! They already showed off Your Shape: Fitness Evolved during the Microsoft keynote, but apparently they thought it was good enough to show again. Well guess what - they were wrong. In fact it wasn't worth showing off the first time. Next.
There was a little video for Raving Rabbids Travel in Time. None of this video was gameplay, so I'm having a hard time figuring out what kind of game this is. It's exclusively for the Wii, so my expectations are next to nil. But to be fair, I can't really say anything for certain, because all they showed was a gameplay-free trailer.
Ghost Recon: Future Soldier - this is what everyone wanted to see. And I'm glad to say that it didn't disappoint. There was a demo that looks freaking amazing. I really can't wait for this game to come out! I wasn't the least bit interested in this game before, but after seeing it in demo form...wow. There's a nice mixture of stealth and action. The graphics looked amazing, and this isn't even the final build. Just wow. The demo left me speechless.
They showed a demo of Driver: San Francisco next. I'm just...well, I remember the old Driver games; they weren't that great. Driver was a series that I was fine with being gone. I felt no need to see it brought back. But since it is being brought back, it looks...meh. You drive around doing cool chase scenes. It's pretty much what you'd expect, and it doesn't look like it offers much more than what you'd expect. This might be the perfect type of game for someone, but not me.
They showed a trailer of a game that is being called Project: Dust right now. The trailer doesn't really tell you much about the game, so I'm not sure of much about it. The premise was certainly interesting; it appears to be about some ancient civilization trying to survive or something of that nature. I'm not sure what genre of game this will be, but I think that if the gameplay can match the premise, it might just end up being pretty good.
Rayman has been gone for a while, so I'm surprised that we got to see Rayman: Origins. There's something you must know about this game if you didn't see the gameplay: it's freaking cute as hell, but that's not at all a bad thing. It really does look like it's a very charming game, and I think it looks like it could be one of those games that is just pure fun, which is something I've been wanting for a while.
ManiaPlanet isn't a game at all; it's a platform to allow people to make their own games. TrackMania is something that has been out for a while, and it's been quite popular. Now it's being branched out into a whole platform that will have TrackMania, ShooterMania, and QuestMania (racing, FPS, and RPG accordingly). This has that whole LittleBigPlanet feel to it where it's focusing on the gamers as creators. The problem I have with this is that most of us aren't game designers, and I don't want to have to sift through loads of crap from artistic wannabes to find one gem.
Apparently there's a Michael Jackson game of some sort. I don't know; some people came out and danced to Beat It. Whatever. Just Dance: Michael Jackson? Meh. I'd rather not Just Dance if it's all the same to Ubisoft.
Yeah, Ubisoft's keynote was just horrible. There were a few interesting games, and a few great looking games, but...there was just too much that disappointed me. I'm feeling that Ubisoft is becoming one of the major advocates of casual gaming. With things like Innergy in the pipeline, I'm just...I can't get behind Ubisoft on this. Terrible. Tsk, tsk.

Not a bad showing. Quick and had some really good talking points. We can't wait for Anthem.
Battlefield V Battle Royale was the first the major announcement from EA. E3 “It is on.” This press conference was an absolute cliche of what E3 continues to be year after year. Including the finishing touch of unveiling a super boss fight at the end of a demo just to fade to black. Do something new and actually show the boss fight for a change. Somebody, please. I do hope the show gets better than this EA presentation. Here are my highlights.
Battlefield V looks great. This is the newest attempt to maximize this engine. The map looks huge, the destruction and weather environments look like a true next-gen game. As far as the Battle Royale mode, it’s not much for a game like Battlefield V to add a mode like this. I believe the core of the game is still going to be team-based conquest. Vintage Battlefield.
Then Fifa was mention, but just a cinematic was shown. Nothing new there. EA’s subscription base game rental system had a video. People are not into that shit from EA, they already think the company is sketchy as hell. An announcement of Jedi Fallen Order from Respawn Games.
Then we had a short presentation for Star Wars Battlefront II. The guy in the red flannel shirt said that The Clone Wars is coming to Battlefront later this year. He also announced General Grievous, Obi-Wan, Count Dooku and Anakin Skywalker. Basically everything the BF2 community wanted to hear. He only had one picture from what I saw and it was of Grievous. Nothing else was shown or mention. They are dedicated to the game.Read full story...
One of my favorite times of the year. I love the E3 Press Conferences.
Jimmy is back! It's E3 2009. I'm drunk talking about the Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony Press Conferences. Don't miss this one Jimmy!
