    I didn't like that intermission but they showed some good games. Mostly interested in Ghost of Tsushima and Spiderman. Also gonna try and get that KH3 PS4 Pro.

    Nintendo is tomorrow. Looking forward to Smash and Fire Emblem.

    Not gonna lie though, the Spiderman game looks pretty promising. I'm reserving judgment until i get my hands on it, but every indicator is that it's gonna be pretty good.

    First new glimpse of TLOU2 we get after literal years and its Ellie making out with another girl. For fuck's sake Druchmann, Ellie's status as a lesbian is not what made people like the first game. Surprising, I know, but there it is. Get your head out of your ass.

    Edit: As for AC: Odyssey, I was hoping for something better than a reskinned Origins with an equally terrible and tacked-on RPG system.

    I'll get it out of principle because Greece, but the AC series is on its death throes.

    No Avengers on Sony conference? Weird. Maybe they plan to have it on SDCC? Spider-Man should be pretty good, but I have my doubts about how much of his web swinging will be actually controlled by the player in these quick chases and how much it will be just hitting one button at the right time.

    Oh I can't wait to play it. I just find it hilarious that Peter was out here acting more like Frank Castle.

    The webs attaching to buildings is what sold me, it's what I missed from the earlier Spider Man games, as it made simply swinging around a ton of fun.

    I hate Assassin's Creed. It is one of the primary reasons for my distrust of Ubisoft. But I love the time period... So I might just buy it.

    Sony showed some big hitters, but all in all their conference felt really janky. It seemed like they put a fuckload of effort into making the on-site experience amazing and gorgeous, while everyone at home got a 10 minute intermission with awkward presenters.

    And where the hell was Kojima? His annual standing ovation is like the highlight of my E3.

    Really? You liked the first TLOU for reasons other than the characters and story? You're in the minority.

    Ellie's character and backstory was also further explored in the awesome DLC.

    Don't prove the stereotype. I just got done rolling my eyes at the serial whiners claiming people would be bitching about Ellie's romantic life.

    Speaking of serial whiners, I particular loved the ones that bitched about cultural appropriation when they had a white guy playing the bamboo flute. I mean, when the Japanese publisher hired a white guy to play the bamboo flute.

    What? What are you even trying to say? That the characters and the story of the first game are ... about Ellie being a lesbian?

    Yes, Ellie's sexuality was a major and very important part of the first game. Without that, it wouldn't have been as impactful. Characters are essentially their sexual preference, and not exploring that in depth and immediately would make for a boring, un-interesting story. Right? That's sarcasm by the way.

    The characters and the story in the first game had nothing to do with this and if that's what you got out of it, then you're not only in the minority but you also have issues.

    Ellie's sexuality was revealed in the DLC and had exactly zero part to play in the main game. And the DLC was amazingly successful, right? It had as huge an impact as the original game, yes?

    You're a moron.

    To clarify, I don't care what Ellie likes to fuck. That's not why I played the first game, that's not why I've been anticipating the second one. Romance is fine, great even, but after years of waiting since the last trailer, seeing her suck faces with anyone is not the first in my list of priorities of things to see on a trailer on literally the first scene.

    So I'm guessing you switched off in disgust after they kissed then?

    The trailer very obviously was highlighting how fucking terrifying she is, juxtaposing the brutality with a fucking barn dance. She sees herself as 'just as girl' but she's clearly anything but.

    I don't even know why I even have to explain anything. The fact you think you're in any position to dictate what's important or relevant to Naughty Dog is just laughable.

    Keep calling me a moron though. It's a great look.

    Btw, I didn't even say you had a problem with her sexuality, or that that was even the issue. Keep projecting though, genius.

    If you don't like being insulted, don't start insulting. Or at least don't do so by saying stupid-ass shit like:
    Where you directly imply that Ellie's sexuality is the core of the 'characters and story' that made the first game successful.

    I'm ... not? I don't work at Naughty Dog, I'm not an investor, I don't have any pull with them. I never said I did. Criticizing their choices doesn't mean that I believe I should be the one to make them.

    No?
    How about fuck off with your assumptions? It's a bad design decision to have that be the focus of the trailer, and pointing that out doesn't mean having an issue with Ellie being a lesbian.

    Also, since you like hearing it, let me repeat. You're a moron.

    Seeing as you're determined to be a bitchbaby about it, no. I'm not saying you have a problem with her sexuality - though the anger at which you're replying has me genuinely fucking curious now. I'm saying you have a problem with the romance scene being there, and that it's somehow irrelevant, you overly defensive and precious fucknugget. It isn't. She's at a dance with someone who seems to be her girlfriend, romance at a dance is normal. She's conscious about how others see her, it obviously troubles her. This is important to her character.

    Ellie shrugs off her girlfriend's attempts to compliment her by saying she's just a normal girl, but her reply that they're all terrified of her triggers a flashback of her fucking shit up.

    This brings me back around to, what the actual fuck are you complaining about again? The couple of minutes spent at a dance that plays as a contrast to the roughly ten minutes she spends fucking up these crazy, stomach gutting cultists? The majority of the trailer is ND showing us that Ellie is grown up now and can take care of herself, that we'll likely be playing her solo sans Joel or anyone else and that she's a bamf.

    I think you're the one that needs to get their head out of their ass.

    Oh and btw you haven't had to wait 'literal years' for trailer, we got one at the end of last year. It was fucking great, no dance either. You'll probably love it.

    I think where Republic is coming from here is that it feels more like exploitation of LGBTQ to make that the main focus in the beginning than actually relevant to the story. Typically games show off the conflict and stakes in trailers not relationships.

    It can very easily be reduced to “Two chicks kissing sells.”

    YouTube comments re; who's winning E3 between Microsoft vs Sony are actually hilarious.

    Ghosts of Tsushima looks absolutely brilliant. I'm interested in what Nintendo are planning show off. Main interest is in if they'll throw SMT in there. Not something I personally expect til Tokyo but it'd be great if it got some widespread coverage/appeal.

    Jesus Christ, Nintendo is going HAM on Super Smash Brothers.

    Cloud?

    .. Pac Man?

    Ryu!

    And at the very end of the video, derp Luigi and Yoshi. "Every fighter in Super Smash Brothers history is included."

    "Simply put, this is the biggest crossover in gaming history."
    Nintendo got jokes.

    Also a new Fire Emblem was announced, but I don't think we know more than its title: Three Houses.

    Holy fuck it's Ridley! They actually did it!

    I actively dislike Nintendo and I still thought it looked awesome.

    Fire Emblem looked good, spring 2019 tho.

    Its cool their bringing everyone back for smash. I was hoping to see more new characters but there is a long time till launch.

    Xenoblade DLC looked nice. It was one of my favorite games last year so I'm looking forward to it.

    I can understand them focusing on their biggest game of the year but the conference was slightly underwhelming otherwise.
