E3 is now over and while there were some surprises to be had, I was overall a little disappointed.
Marvel vs Capcom 4 was shown and a demo released but it doesn't feel like a vs game like the others did. I'm not super happy with the characters or that Capcom is going to be releasing a large number of the characters as downloadable content later.
The new God of War was shown and I don't like the direction they are taking the series. Almost like a sort of Last of Us style where you are taking care of your son. It's not the mythic/god realm like all the others and doesn't fit in at all.
The last of us 2 wasn't shown at all and neither was kingdom hearts 3, final fantasy 7 remake, resident evil 2 remake. It just felt a little lacking.
On the Nintendo side, just a small few little titles were shown that included mario odyssey, yoshi, mario and luigi superstar saga remake.
Here is mario:
Looks alright but I don't have a switch and just don't see myself having one for a very long time if ever.
Here is yoshi, which i admit looks very creative and fun and cute:
Sonic was also shown as a trailer for his new game but not as a cross platform one when we know it will be appearing on all consoles.
Nothing else really of note was shown but I can't say it was a complete disappointment, I just had my expectations set way too high.
There isn't much on the movie side of things other than a few tidbits.
Chris Evans said that Avengers 3/4 infinity war is as far as his contract as captain america goes and it will wrap everything up for him. Which means no more cap for chris. Which could mean cap either quits or dies in the upcoming avengers 2 part infinity war movies.
Frozen is getting a small christmas short before the release of the full fledged sequel that's coming in 2019. The trailer for that was released today:
So, other than it being way too hot in here, so much so that I can barely sleep, I think it is time for me to try and sleep and hope tomorrow goes alright. I'm going to be seeing Some Like It Hot at the theater with my parents after work and then home after that so there will be no streaming time or chat time so this blog will be the main source of all tomorrow. I'm feeling better and don't worry, those emotional walls just hit sometimes but I do manage to get through. Until next post, have a wonderful night.
