E3 2016 Predictions & Discussion thread

Just a small notice: I'll be creating the E3 2016 | General Information & FAQ thread which will go up soon to when the press conferences begin (including the one by EA). Feel free to send me any requests for that thread. It'll feature the common things like schedule, exhibitor list, press information, fun stuff like the usual Spotify playlist, bingo cards etc.

As for the expo itself, I predict that we will see a few "megaton" announcements, mostly from Sony. Something regarding The Last Guardian perhaps. Then we have of course the proposed PS4 Neo and an upgraded Xbox One, so that could make big splashes too.

Nintendo I think will comment on NX due to the deluge of questions from media. Nothing big, but perhaps something to increase anticipation.

Bethesda will tease TES VI without confirming anything.
EA will tease us about the mid-generation console update.
Microsoft will have a third party revive one of their dust-covered IPs (It's not Battletoads)
Nintendo will have a full conference within Zelda U/NX's world.
Sony will drop a teaser for The Last of Us 2.
Square Enix will show Dissidia for PS4.
Ubisoft will show a game that connects two of their series together in a subtle manner.

I just wanna see release dates for these titles:

TLG
Abzu
Hunger
Rain World

The rest is whateva. I lost all of my E3 enthusiasm after getting the thing I've been asking for last year.
No game, just Shawn Layden in a Crash suit? Well, whatever floats your boat.
That would most likely be more entertaining than the reboot.

So this is the new E3 thread :D Banners are finished and linked. I am just not sure if any of those additional streams will cover PC Gamer "conference". Everything else should be ready for E3

MS shouldn't be showing Halo 6 anything. They should focus on Halo Wars 2 (you know, the game that we've seen absolutely nothing about since announcement) and Halo 5 DLC.
I was just trying to think of a big first party title to close out the show. Halo 6 wouldn't come out until next fall, but they showed Gears 4 last year and its not coming out until this fall. Figured a short teaser (read: a flash of something and some spoken words with a logo and 2017) would be a possibility.

Lots and lots of Zelda. I will watch the trailer and first demo, but go on blackout after that. I have a feeling a lot of the game will be spoiled

What about all the hype behind Source2? What happened with that. A DOTA2 update doesn't count!
Steam OS, same question?
Half Life 3, Left 4 Dead 3.... nothing?

No new character in June. We get the Cinematic Story mode in June. Also it makes a lot of sense to show a good Story mode trailer at E3 and get the interest of the casuals.

I think Rare's going to be announcing a new Battletoads at E3. There was an insider here on GAF who basically "confirmed" they're working on it. This is also the same insider who pretty much confirmed Sea of Thieves before it was announced:

http://m.neogaf.com/showpost.php?p=203423970

I don't really have any particular attachment to the Battletoads franchise, so I'm sort of indifferent to them announcing a new game or not, but there you go.

What is with MS' fascination with Battletoads? Just an odd IP to revive IMO. Nice find though..didn't know Xav had sources.

What IS a spoiler anymore? This past year it feels like it went from: "plot critical information about a game's story" to "ANYTHING AT ALL"

It's the reveal of the game, how spoilery can it be?
I don't see how they're going to avoid spoilers given that Zelda is literally their entire E3.

If it's as big as we think it's gonna be, they can show a lot of just "random open-world exploration" without actually showing anything plot relevant.

Mass Effect Andromeda, Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 will be the big games at EA's press conference and will be playable at EA Play.

Things that will be at the EA Press Conference:

-Release date for Mass Effect Andromeda and Titanfall 2
-Name and trailer (maybe a date?) for the Hazelight game (from the director of Brothers: At Tale of Two Sons)
-Name and trailer for the Amy Hennig/Visceral game
-Some kind of update on Criterion's game

I just think Zelda is one of those franchises where a big part of the appeal is the sense of discovery. So I definitely think you lose a bit of that when you're watching someone else play chunks of the game. It's one thing to have a 5-10 minute stage demo of the game, but their show is Zelda. So it's going to be a lot more than that.

For this reason, I won't be watching Nintendo at all this E3. I feel I've heard enough about the game already and my media blackout starts now. Already know some of the core gameplay philosophy and the art style, that's enough for me! Except the title of course and maybe some generic info on whether to get the Wii U or NX version.

I predict the xbox My games & apps section on the OS will get a revamp. Microsoft will announce a simplified method to list all downloaded games/apps on the hard drive. I also imagine Phil will announce background music and a batch of highly anticipated backward compatible games like RDR.

Nintendo will show lots of Zelda, with brief pauses to mention release dates for upcoming games, and capping it off with a wild Mother 3 announcement.

Well, they did announce things earlier than E3 for the last two years to get them out of the way, so probably something is coming...
This might or might not be related to this tweet, obviously.

That's not banjo. Battle toads is cool though
