E3 2019 Borderlands 3 Psycho swag mask

Between some great new releases and an attendee crew, this was a pretty fun E3.

Without a doubt, Gearbox/2K conducted a masterful exhibition of Borderlands 3. They checked all the boxes:

There were ample demo stations and staff, and no media-only restrictions or such nonsense.

The game plays like its predecessor, but they seemed to have evolved most aspects of the experience. More skills, more items, more convenience features, more game modes.

Ultimately it seems the game's reception will hinge on how well Gearbox executed on the story and how much variety is offered by the interplanetary journey.

After a zombie-filled reveal last year, I was hoping to get my hands on Dying Light 2. Unfortunately, Techland only had an appointment-only(ish) conference room with a cinematic demo.

As usual, there were plenty of smaller titles that were easy to get our hands on.


E3 2019 Rockstar Cotton Candy flavor has science gone too far

It wouldn't be E3 without new energy drink brands that will soon be out of business or new flavors from existing brands that should have never been conceived. There were a few powder additive options this time around as well as champagne-flavored Bang with creatine.

It also wouldn't be E3 without collectibles, photobooths, and swag.
