I’ve never been big on E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo where game companies show off their latest products. I don’t watch it, don’t really pay any attention to it, and the only things I see come from social media. I can’t tell you who does things when, or what conferences were better than others, but I can tell you what people say on Facebook and Twitter.
EA happened. People complained about sports, other people told people to let people like sports games, and I think that’s it. No mention of The Sims, so I don’t care. Not a fan of EA.
Also, Kingdom Hearts 3 was announced…I think.
“UGH EA SO BORING. I DON’T CARE ABOUT SPORTS”.
Okay. But there are millions of players in the world that do.

Microsoft did their thing today. People are somewhat pleased. I guess they’re doing something that isn’t an FPS game? Also they’re coming out with an XBox One X? Most people agree that this is a dumb name. Whatever, I can’t afford it.
Better alternative names than “Xbox One X”:
– Xbox Scorpio
– Xbox Attitude Machine
– Xbox Brown Brick
– Xbox Please God
– Xbox Playstation 5

Everyone is disappointed in Bethesda, but apparently Ubisoft and Sony did well. Saw something about Shadow of the Colossus and Far Cry 5.
“Everything is ready… any sign of ‘him’?”

“NOT AGAIN, TODD”

Pretty sure Nintendo won E3. Many people on Twitter were freaking out over Metroid Prime 4, and there was mention of a few amiibos and a new Pokémon RPG. There were other announcements of ports for the Switch. Pretty neato stuff.
Okay Nintendo, HD Kirby, Metroid Prime 4, new Pokemon game for the Switch, and new Yoshi. You did not disappoint at all.

So, uhm, yeah. Videogames. They are indeed a thing!
