Nintendo's digital event this year was probably the most interesting one it's had in a while as it announced a few new games and franchises. Plus, the company now seems keen to mock itself with Robot Chicken segments, references to the Luigi Death Stare and Reggie officially saying the word "ass." This is despite ever tightening restrictions on its public relations officials.
Among the games that attracted attention, a new Zelda, a new Star Fox and a new Yoshi's Island all got top billing. The two new franchises are a surprising departure for Nintendo, as again, it reaches into absurdity to create intruiging premises.
Daniel Rosen continues his adventures in sitting beside a computer monitor and live tweeting every press conference at this year's E3. With EA talking mostly about the concept of video games, and Ubisoft giving Alisha Tyler an annual paycheck, all that's left is Sony.
We get a glimpse of the Sony of 2015, as they showcase Batman: Arkham Knight, Uncharted, Bloodborne, Powers, Dead Island 2, PS Now, and No Man's Sky. They also talk about way more than Daniel alternatively enjoys, snarks on, or attacks vehemently. Like who really wanted Youtube sharing on PS4. It's handy, but come on. It's like clapping for button pressing functionality.
Microsoft's E3 press conference was a shocker this year for how focused it was on games, not features. They revealed the Xbox One's biggest news all year. Daniel Rosen willingly sat by his televisionand talked about Microsoft for two hours to find out for us. We don't pay him enough for this, or at all. First on the list was Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. It's about terrorism? Or maybe the war economy. No. Wait. That's a different game.
