EA @ E3 – My Thoughts

This is my thoughts on EA’s E3 press conference. This will not be a long full-length article on it, just a set of notes on what I saw during the press conference.

NOTES

  • FOOTBALL!!!
  • Battlefield 1 came out in November. It’s first DLC will be out in September. Wow.
  • …REAL FOOTBALL!!!
  • I did like FIFA 17’s Journey mode, so I’m happy to see they’re actually continuing it, I felt it ended way too soon in FIFA 17
  • Need For Speed Payback is a pretty piece of shit. Cutscenes in the middle of races? Who thought that was a good idea?!
  • I’m not sure how I feel about A Way Out, it’s an interesting idea from an interesting developer, yet it looks so generic at the same time
  • Oh? A new BioWare game? Wait…where are you going! Come back! NO! I DON’T WANT TO KNOW ABOUT NBA LIVE 18! COME BACK, BIOWARE! COME BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK!!!
  • STAR WARS!!!
  • Can we never have voice actors speak to us about a game while in-character ever again?
  • We’re going to have a single-player campaign! ……….Now here’s some multiplayer gameplay for you!
  • Terrible mistake or NBA/Star Wars crossover?
  • The Battlefront II multiplayer was boring and should’ve been shut down after five minutes, if not less than that
  • Let’s spend five minutes on a fucking pay-to-win mobile app! Wooooooooo!!!
  • 30 minutes of Star Wars. No single-player campaign, no Visceral Games appearance, nothing of importance. Wow.
  • Showing more of Need For Speed that just buries itself further
  • Madden is back and TotalBiscuit’s stream I was watching for this, he decided to shut it down from here, called it the most boring E3 conference he’s ever watched and I agree, but I have to finish this…I don’t know how I’m going to make it!
  • I feel like the actual conference ended and now this is the post-show…all right, I’m done too!

THE GOOD

  • FIFA 18 continuing Alex Hunter
  • A Way Out looks interesting

THE BAD

  • EVERYTHING ELSE!!!
  • The biggest waste of 30 minutes of Star Wars possible! I don’t think you can fuck up any harder without just not showing anything at all!
  • Seriously! Cutscenes in a fucking racing game!

FINAL SCORE: 1.5/5
