E3 2013 Playstation XBox booths walls

I stopped by the LA Convention Center to see what all the hubbub was about. The new consoles were heavily featured, with very little of the controveries featured in the pressers and internet. There was a lot of the usual stuff, more COD, MW, NFS, GT, Forza, Final Fantasy, etc. The Final Fantasy XV trailer looked pretty awesome though, annnd like they're maybe trying Assassin's Creed style gameplay(?).

There were some beloved characters to be found. I'm pretty stoked about the MGS collection since I missed a few of them. HD remakes seem to be a thing now.

That's not to say a new Snake adventure isn't welcome. Free roaming! I don't know how Franck can look so aghast.

In the driving realm, NFS Rivals looked like another EA installment - incremental improvement. GT6 was unremarkable and, knowing Polyphony, will be out for PS3 long after the PS4 has hit shelves. Full marks to Forza for looking good, having a McLaren (> new Stingray) with staff, and targeting next gen hardware. That said, they had very limited demo availability.

Back at the homestead two sides of the house are repainted. And I've started a new, unnamed brew:

Games of the Decade: 2018 - Tales of the Aggronaut

We are getting towards the end now, two more years to go in this decade worth of gaming. I am finding it as I get more into "recent" history I am having way more trouble narrowing things down to a handful of games. For 2017, 2018 and 2019 I wound up with massive lists, I ... Read more
