FFD: What are you most looking forward to from this year’s E3?

E3surprise

This morning, waking from the first sleep I’ve had since I travelled to MSI’s headquarters, it really dawned on me that the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo was set to kick off this weekend. I’ve been existing in a sort of foggy haze this past week – and though I’ve seen new about E3 and the escalating hype around 2016’s gamer Christmas, it’s all been pushed back in to the recesses of my brain.

Anyway, now that I’ve finally woken up and realised that, by golly, E3 starts this bloody weekend I’m getting excited. I know, I’m meant to be cynical and grumpy and not get caught up in the hype of it all – but there’s just so much about E3 to love. Of course, there will be new games shown, and there will be crazy E3 moments and memes – and of course we’ll get to find out more details about games that already know are coming.

E3’s at its best for me when there are genuine surprises. It doesn’t happen too often anymore, thanks to a very, very leaky internet – but when those surprises happen, and the gaming side of the internet just explodes, E3 becomes very, very special indeed.

So yea, I’m looking most forward to being surprised this year. What are you most looking forward to?

    Nothing. Absolutely nothing. I refuse to get caught up in the Hype.
    Well, confirming the Skyrim remaster would be neat. Announcing it will cost us R250.00 locally would be neater.

      Why? Community mods are in all likelyhood already faaaaar superior to any graphics updates Bethesda will be able to push.

      Releasing a remaster of a game who’s community has a single goal of pushing the boundaries of the quality themselves just seems silly

        Because the remastered game on console will be much cheaper than upgrading my PC so I can run said mods.

          Ok, remaster on a console I can understand

          Also, the mods that push graphics so badly you need an upgrade are bad. There are amazing low impact, high quality mods out there that don’t trash your performance. Those will still be better than a PC remaster. Guarenteed

            The mods that push the limits are there because technology has increased to a point where those mods are fine. If you have a 970 for instance, those mods won’t dent the performance. If you have a 1070, even less so.

    Blizzard admitting that bastion is the character meant for when you start Overwatch.
    You play him, learn how other heroes move and play, and at some point, just kind of discard him.

    He’s stupid easy to kill these days around – and teams have learned to focus him quite rigorously… So the question is, why do I see him in games where everyone is above level 20?! O.o

    If he’s on the enemy team – you win…
    If he’s on your team – you lose…

    He’s a goddamn liability and Blizzard needs to at least make people aware of the fact that he’s like a sniper in DotA 2 – broken in a Game of Noobs, useless when going up against experienced players…

    Destiny 2. I really hope they learned from the first one. I’d like to see them take into consideration that once you’re all alone there’s not much else to do. So not everyone can go on raids, but they’ll keep playing if there was another way to go about acquiring the best gear. Also draw a line between PVE and PVP. For instance don’t nerf PVE weapons for the sake of balancing PVP
