EA had their non-press conference event of E3 2016. Unfortunately it did not impress GoldenEdgeGamers.
Things got off to a slow start and Titanfall 2 hit, while I personally thought it looked good and I’m eagerly awaiting to see more of the campaign, I can’t deny that it looked almost exactly the same. Our other members felt it was a bit “meh” Titanfall 2 has to be really careful not to become the game that the first one should’ve been.
Ea sports zzzz I’m sorry but we’re skipping over this. Alex Hunter is a noob.
Unfortunately the show didn’t pick up after the boring EA Sports stuff, it should’ve done because we got Mass Effect Andromeda but how many years have we been seeing behind the scenes stuff for this game? Two? Three? Enough is enough EA, if you can’t show me the game don’t show it. They promised to show us more in Fall but at this point I would not be surprised to for it to be another behind the scenes video.
Then we had this year’s Yarnie in the form of Fe. I’m not joking when I say that this was unanimously agreed to be the best game at EA’s show. While I actually did really like this game, others felt it was “meh” again. Why was it unanimously agreed to be the best? Literally the only game we saw.
Yep Star Wars showed us about four seconds of Amy Henna’s game and while those four seconds were really cool, you’ve gotta stop teasing us EA. Don’t talk about games don’t promise us with concept art, show us the game, show us the gameplay at least show us a teaser trailer. I just can’t get excited over behind the scenes concept art and interviews.
We ended on Battlefield 1. We got a pretty cool looking trailer but it’s just noise at this point. The World War 1 setting is exciting but EA seem to be doing everything in their power to ignore that it’s set in World War 1.
After the show we got a glimpse at the multiplayer and while I’m not sold because I think it looks like another reskin, JMMREVIEW remains optimistic. Hopefully there will be a public beta before the release because that’s the only thing that will change my impressions.
E3, not looking great so far but things should pick up with Bethesda coming up next.
