Sony's conference had some great stuff, I enjoyed most of what they presented. Last Guardian gameplay? FF7? Awesome stuff. I don't own an xbox but the news of backwards compatibility and mod support is great. Fallout 4 obviously.

I know I'm missing other good games.

Well, barring anymore surprise announcements (holy shit The Last Guardian lives), I'm really only interested in four games this year. Those would be Fallout 4, Fire Emblem: If, XCOM 2, and Battlefront. So far, Fallout 4 is literally jeebus (I think Bethesda's won e3 this year), Battlefront looks pretty good (I've heard it's stripped compared to the older games but it looks good nonetheless), and I know enough about the new Fire Emblem and XCOM 2 to just see if any new gameplay footage is released of 'em. XCOM 2 does have its tutorial mission released as footage, and it was pretty neat.

Everyone's strong this year except EA (they did their shtick of putting mobile stuffs sandwiched between their sports stuffs), but the most improvement I think was in Ubisoft's conference. They had a really shitty year, and so they made a point to do live demos, which is a good thing. At least, they say they're live demos. I guess we'll see when their games launch. The Division still looks great to me though.

Nintendo's E3 Direct is at noon Eastern, SquareEnix's is at 1:00 Eastern, and there's even a PC-centric conference at around 8:00 Eastern, so I still have those to watch before this whole hype time is over for me. :P

Battlefront got me pretty excited and For Honor also looked really good. Also that new Guerrilla IP? I forget the name of it, the one with the chick with a bow hunting robots. That looked pretty interesting, would like to see more.

And yeah, all the conferences were stronger this year. EA and Ubi had less interesting bits sandwiched in there but there was a lot of promising games shown.

i forgot Squeenix had a conference. Watching it right now and all i can say is wtf is up with Square? It was fairly low key and lack luster, they could've done without it.

So Nintendo was weak this year. They put their best foot forward but didn't really have anything to follow it. New Star Fox looks awesome, and the third/first person dual screen mechanic, if it works as intended, is brilliant. But other than that, the only thing that got me even moderately hyped was the new Fire Emblem trailer in english. Followed by the cringe-tastic "crossover" between it and Atlus. They didn't even bring out big guns for the 30th anniversary of Mario. :(

No idea, they didn't even have new FFXV footage. The only interesting thing they had was Kingdom Hearts 3 gameplay, and I'm one of the five people who doesn't get why it's such a big deal. Seriously, it baffles me. Not hating, just confused as hell. They really could've done better for an E3 conference. :\

So yeah, gonna say Sony won out of the big three, but Bethesda won E3 as a whole this year.

I dont know, i'm definitely not a Microsoft person and i think they had some pretty good announcements. I can't really say who had a better showing without being biased against the Xbox. However based on The Last Guardian alone i will say Sony nailed it, that's pretty much all they had to show but i think they should've closed with it instead of opened.

Square Enix hasn't even mildly impressed me in ten years, and I'm a JRPG honk. The last new/unremastered content I've picked up were... FF12 and Chocobo's Dungeon for the Wii?  They said a couple of years ago that they were going to focus on mobile content, so I just completely wrote them off.

The only things I'm genuinely excited about from them is KH3, FF15 & Deus Ex. I kinda want to get the KH collection but I dunno. I might hold off for a box set out something, it's gotta happen at some point knowing Square
