Hi y'all, it's me, the person who usually does the Road to E3 threads. well, a few things have happened since last june:

- ESA accidentally doxxed everyone who went to E3 the last several years
- a virus forced everyone indoors right when animal crossing came out. COINCIDENCE??????
- multiple cities are now on fire
- i got a turbografx16 mini and neo geo mini and have been playing them non-stop until the roof caves in on me

so even if E3 were to happen, I wouldn't be able to put in the usual (slight) effort to make a big thread with lots of, well, the same GIFs from E3 2009 and 2010 because E3 hasn't really been funny since then. but now there's no E3, and no Cash, and no Jobs.

all those ancient E3 memories will be lost in time, like tears in rain. time to (far) cry

BUT THERE ARE STILL EVENTS:


pictured above: 5 year old E3 GIFs that still work for some reason, all of them from ubisoft

June 11th
Playstation 5 "The Future of Gaming" Presentation -- 1 PM PT/4 PM ET
We've seen the wall-e rear end controller, we watched mark cerny talk for 2 hours about nerd poo poo no one even understands, but what about ~the games~. that time is now apparently, where we will see some games maybe. or just some pre-rendered trailers since COVID is keeping every programmer cooped up in their bedrooms staring at their phone looking at social media waiting for death.

June 13th
Guerilla Collective Live - 9 AM PT/NOON ET
A showcase of various developers, focused primarily on indie teams. it's being hosted by Kinda Funny Games' greg miller, so expect a lot of........................ humor. There will also be a livestream running across three days, it sounds like.

Publishers/developers confirmed for Guerilla Collective Live: Larian Studios, 11bit, Funcom, Paradox, Nightdive, a lot of indies

The PC Gaming Show -- NOON PT/3 PM ET
Day9's event, which is probably the event least likely to change in today's current climate, because his event was already just quiet interviews with developers on couches followed by trailers. so I would expect the exact same thing but over a Zoom call.

Publishers/developers confirmed for PC Gaming Show: 2K, Atlus, DONTNOD, Frontier, Humble Games, Merge, Perfect World, Rebellion, Sega, Tripwire, XSEED and others.

The Future Games Show -- 2 PM PT/5 PM ET
This is an hour long event run by GamesRadar, so I'm not sure if this will be all that special.. but it exists on the schedule. Nolan North is apparently hosting this, he's already in every game so he might as well.

Publishers/developers confirmed for Future Games Show: Square-Enix, Devolver Digital, Deep Silver, Raw Fury, TinyBuild, Hi-Rez Studios, Curve Digital



June 18th
EA Play Live 2020 -- 4 PM PT/7 PM ET
Every year the least necessary E3-adjacent event continues to not die. Last year's wasn't even a proper event and they talked about Sims 4 a lot, a game that had already been out for a while. EA just got another 5 year exclusive deal with the NFL for reasons I can't fathom other than incumbance. i don't even know what they're working on outside of sports. jedi fallen order DLC? battlefront 6? idk. they should bring back B.O.B. from the Sega Genesis. have i made this reference before??? i am definitely losing my mind.

June 22nd
Summer Game Fest -- 8 AM PT/11 AM ET
This is Geoff Keighley's event, but due to COVID he can't have his best friend Boogie "nazi medical experimentation was a silver lining of the holocaust" 2988 on the stream with him. he has been doing Steam game demo festivals for indie games, will this be the first time AAA developers get in on it? the event description mentions both indie and AAA games will be shown.

June 23rd
New Game+ Expo -- 8 AM PT/11 AM ET
Another showcase of various developers, will include Sega, SNK, Wayforward, Koei Tecmo, Natsume. Wayforward released Shantae 5 to just about zero fanfare, so I would assume their next game is something licensed... maybe this time they won't hitch their wagons to a dead-on-arrival franchise like The Universal Classic Monsters Cinematic Universe.

July 12th
Ubisoft Forward -- 12 PM PT/3 PM ET
Ubisoft was the only fun event at E3s and now COVID and social distancing has made that impossible. i guess technically they could have people in animal suits together in a room if the suits keep the air particles trapped inside, and gently caress, that would be miserable. the big game for Ubisoft this year is Assassin's Creed Valhalla, which is the third game in their Witcher 3 knockoff trilogy. maybe they have another Nintendo collaboration coming??

July 20th
Summer Games Fest Pt. 2 -- TBA

August 27th
Gamescom Opening Night Live (more Geoff Keighley) -- TBA

--

And so it made sense to me to still do a thread this year, to keep discussion all in one place, because (A) I suspect discussion will be a lot more muted this year, on account of (B) the 'events' will be much tamer and ordinary without stage presence due to COVID, and (C) there's not a lot of publicity going on with these events aside from the Sony presentation.

So this is gonna be a very different year and a very different kind of thread... we're not going to see people in giraffe and panda suits getting on one knee in memoriam of those killed by police brutality, we're not going to see acted out skits of people pretending that motion controls or VR are so immersive it's like they're really in the game, and we're mostly going to see people in their living rooms Skyping with game developers in other rooms and then showing trailers.

I'll be around, maybe, depends on whether the city I live in gets completely destroyed. When events happen, I'm sure twitch links will go here, or they'll just get posted on the most recent page.

Thanks for stopping by! Be nice and chill, I know everyone's stir-crazy but let's not tear each other apart in a shark-like frenzy because every game 'looks like dogshit' or your favorite console is getting mocked or whatever.

The Sony event has been postponed, for obvious reasons. Probably only by a week, which would put it on the same day as EA's event but earlier.

That said, we may be a few days away from Doom 2 becoming real life, so events might get delayed further.

I know it isn't going to be a new console, but the few moments of wistful daydreaming about it being a new console were very nice.

The PC Gaming Show's been delayed to the 13th.

Sega's 'big announcement' was "fog computing" to extend their japanese arcade centers to the home gamer, nothing that really impacts us Americans. They also announced a Game Gear Micro that is too small to even play on and only comes with 4 games per unit at a ~$50 MSRP. Sega and hardware continue to be water and oil.

I don't think a new date for Sony's event has been announced yet.. but it seems like there won't be any events this week, and events next week might get pushed back as well.

Thanks for the update, I've updated the OP. I guess we're still waiting on a new date for Sony's thing?

e: EA Play Live has been delayed to the 18th.

We now have an official new date for the Sony PS5 conference: this Thursday. Microsoft pulled out of June for now but might just be waiting to see what Sony's conference is like before announcing theirs.

Atlus will be presenting something at the PC Gaming Show, of course everyone wants it to be Persona 5 but atlus doesn't really give PC gamers what they 'want', per se

Here was Guerilla Collective's special presentation for BLM showcasing black creators/developers:

I have spent part of the last 15 Junes in a dark air conditioned room watching press conferences and game trailers. actually one year e3 was during bonnaroo and another it was during governors ball but you bet your rear end I was looking at the game footage on my phone the whole time. I have two kids now but still do the same thing this time of year. I should be assaulted and get my rear end kicked real bad

Why are so many people talking about a reboot of Legacy of Kain? Was there a rumor or leak? I LOVE Soul Reaver so this would be amazing.

1 or 2 leakers have mentioned that Kain/Jak and Daxter are both coming and Bluepoint is working on a Soul Reaver remake with Squeenix. Take it with a grain of salt but it would be a very cool project, Bluepoint did an amazing job with Shadow of the Colossus

A Bluepoint Soul Reaver remake would be amazing since that trilogy is just a few rough edges short of true greatness. RIP Tony Jay though, they'd have to get a soundalike if there was any dialogue added back into the game.

I am incredibly excited for the Alex Kidd remake that got announced yesterday, never thought we'd see that little guy ever again. Sega's doing an excellent job lately actually letting poo poo get done with their dormant IP's.

Pretty sure there's gonna be a new Crash game announced today since some merch leaked, but hey what if this is also the year for a new Tomba and Jumping Flash???

Yeah me too! I wish they'd outsource sonic the hedgehog away from Sonic team too!

Cant wait to see what sony has in store for us, I'm kinda sad there's no Central Hype Zone like E3 anymore especially at a console launch year.

Also, I am ULTRA hyped for the SNK conference on the 23rd since in all likelyhood they will be announcing the new METAL SLUG game coming to consoles this year, hell loving yes....

Silent Hill is heavily rumored to be part of the PS5 stuff this week, though it has nothing to do with the previous Kojima/Ito/del Toro project, sadly. It does involve a lot of the original team though and is supposed to be a soft reboot or something.
