The Jimquisition names its inaugural Winners & Losers of E3!
What killed? What died? We celebrate and jeer what Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo, Bethesda, Electronic Arts, and Ubisoft had to offer.
Send me to the Cornflakes Homunkulus if old.
Well, he's not wrong.
Hah, I've spent a lot of time with Skyrim (mostly modding) and I object in no way to the title. :P
"Skyrim, the Cockroach of Video Games" is such a fucking gloriously accurate line. I love Skyrim, but holy shit.
I don't really get the hate for scripted voice chat. We all know it's not largely representative of how chat will sound but I hardly see how it's worse than things like racist insults and general nonsense over distorted mics that people may hear in some session.
I wanted to burn that Anthem chat out of my mind. It was so cringy. Stuff like that does the opposite of hype for me.
Did get a chuckle from Skyrim being called the 'cockroach of games'
Uh no. Jared's a legitimately wholesome guy. Him and Jim are just buddies is all.
Haven't seen the video but is this an inside joke or has Jared done something bad? I just know that he's one of those obnoxious youtubers that is mainly watched by kids and teens who like people making funny faces at the camera.
can't comprehend the origin of terms
I feel bad for people that hadn't seen the Devolver press conference, since some of its better moments are spoiled here.
All the influencers at EA's thing were just the worst. I can't bring myself to feel bad for that guy whose teleprompter died. It still blows my mind that they wanted us to sit through 15 minutes of Battlefront 2 multiplayer, rather than show off even a little bit of the singleplayer campaign. Guys in Blazers bombing on stage is pretty delightful cringe.
really liked the Skyrim cockroach thing, plus Pazazu.
Thank god for Jim.
I would think if it's a subject he chooses to cover he will need a whole episode for it, not really something that can be handled in a snippet during a general E3 video.
No word on Sony not allowing Cross Play with other consoles though, seemed like something for Jim to talk about.
The same game which people waited almost 15 years for to be continued after a story cliffhanger and a painful teaser in 2008 which led to nothing, finally to be announced, only to be turned out just minutes after the announcement to be a prequel and a multiplayer shared universe thing that nobody, ever, asked for? This game? How can that be a winner? This was one of the biggest, if not that biggest disappointment of the whole E3.
Really Jim? I expected more from you.
Sure the announcement first was amazing, but in the middle of the speech and directly after the press conference when it was more and more clear what this is exactly, I can't remember any bigger live turn around disappointment in the last 4 years of E3 that were bigger.
The Xbox One Announcement where they tried to scam us live in the middle of the press conference, right in our faces, that was bigger, but now comes this. Right now, I would even expect Microtransactions shit to be in it. Who wants to bet?
Oh, the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter announcement would come close, but is right behind BG&E2.
I was there and this is not true. The cheering came from the group of fans that were wearing the shirts in front of the stage.
The people applauding pre-orders at Miscrosoft were almost certainly not press, or fans, but Microsoft employees there to provide a reliable cheering section.
