I’ll be quite honest with my opinion and probably piss off a lot of gamers and my fellow partners in work. So far the Electronic Entertainment Expo has failed to impress me, in fact. It’s been rather mediocre when it comes to the Press Conferences themselves, yes I have gotten my long awaited release date for Cuphead, and the Xbox One X has been unveiled for the public eye. However, saying that I like what I’ve got so far is a bold faced lie, especially considering how much Bethesda liked stroking their ego’s to death with their “Totally not ripping off Nintendo Direct for our press conference” stunt.

EXCLUSIVE GEEKREPLY COVERAGE OF EVENT

But hey, maybe I’m simply not falling into the hype, like I suggested before for the many people that probably did already. However, I’m glad to say that one of the people who didn’t even get a single bit of time for a press conference did an E3 Press conference anyway, and that was Devolver Digital. Who launched a Youtube video that basically mocked every single bit of these E3 Press Conferences so far, broken english and everything!

I mean, it’s just paradise for myself to see the overplayed trailers that didn’t really show anything (Not even a new IP). How they went through a catalogue of games that they already made public (Which still doesn’t make sense to me. What’s the point of having an E3 conference with these “big reveals” if they are already given ahead of time? Well done Bethesda!). And the impressive one off gags that are spread across the 15 minute video that makes for the entire press conference. To a very innovative way to do microtransactions with a very “Hand ripping” experience!

Of course, not everything would be complete without some bull-Sorry, silly implementation with Devolver Digital’s EARLIEST ACCESS, a scheme that plans on rushing out games as fast as possible so consumers eat that shit up instantly. Personally, I think it’s a very negative change from what we’ve seen in the industry next to having people throw money to a tablet and expecting it to instantly grow crops in Harvest Moon for the Chintendo 4DS. With the new strategy, Devolver basically plans to give you games you can buy right at the MICROSECOND  they are thought out, you can easily pay your 60 dollars and buy a game before it’s even planned for development. It screams bad news for WiiU users of course, since their online capabilities aren’t that grand after all.

To provide a statement (And make me die of laughter) regarding how incredible the marketing strategy is, Japanese creator Suda51 decided to step in and provide a very insightful piece of knowledge about how incredible Devolver’s Earliest Access program is. Well, with no much else to say, Devolver Digital’s E3 press conference is pretty much the conference every gamer in existance can get pretty excited for, with amazing visuals. you can easily buy into the hype and spend all your money in games. I rate it a 139/200. #Shutup

I always wanted to be a journalist who listens. The Voice of the Unspoken and someone heavily involved in the gaming community.

Metallica takes center stage on the battle arena of the Fortnite Festival, showcasing their musical prowess in an epic PVP showdown

Metallica will be headlining the Battle Stage at the Fortnite Festival, and fans can look forward to an epic performance later today, on the 13th of June. The entire lineup of the legendary heavy metal band has been transformed into digital avatars for the ever-growing gaming platform. Fans can now enjoy their greatest hits and even engage in a thrilling musical player-versus-player game mode.

The collaboration between Metallica and Fortnite marks the start of Fortnite Festival Season 4, featuring an exciting lineup of six Metallica songs, such as “Enter Sandman,”  “Fuel,”  and “Ride the Lightning.”. Additional songs will be introduced as the season progresses. By choosing Epic’s premium Festival Pass, you’ll have the opportunity to unlock all four Metallica band members as playable skins. How about a showdown between Lars Ulrich and Goku?

The aspect that captures our attention is the 16-player musical battle royale. The Battle Stage offers a challenging experience that pushes players to their limits, requiring both physical stamina and a captivating stage presence. Players will find themselves immersed in the intense energy of the four tracks playing simultaneously. Perform with skill, and you can unleash powerful bursts of musical energy, causing less talented individuals to falter and be defeated, with the ultimate victor being crowned the Master of Puppets (most likely).

In addition to that, Metallica will be making an appearance at the Rocket Racing tent, complete with a specially designed track, car, and LEGO replicas of the band members. Is there anything more intense than that?

Do you enjoy Metallica’s music? Could anyone have predicted that the band would rise to prominence in a video game primarily aimed at a younger audience who may not be familiar with their music? And now, let’s turn our attention to the comments section below.

Star Wars Outlaws PS5 Demo Falls Short of Delivering the Full Experience, According to Critic

Star Wars Outlaws, although it appeared visually stunning during Ubisoft’s livestream earlier this week, has received some criticism for feeling somewhat outdated. A preview unfavorably compared the release to Uncharted: Golden Abyss, the PS Vita exclusive spin-off that was launched in 2011. However, according to the creative director, the sampler is merely a small taste of what the full experience has to offer.

“When entering a show of this nature, where you’re finalizing a game’s production, you’re faced with numerous decisions. Our producer limited us to just one demo for all the shows we would attend throughout the year, such as Gamescom and Comic-Con,” Julian Gerighty explained in an interview with VGC.

He explained that the events are designed to cater to both consumers and journalists. To ensure an engaging experience, they opted for a 20-minute format that offers a diverse range of content and showcases different game systems. However, they intentionally avoided showcasing the open-world experience at this particular event, as they plan to unveil it during the studio tour and preview event. This will be a brief overview, more of an appetizer than a full meal when it comes to the game.

According to Gerighty, the developer Massive Entertainment has crafted a highly engaging game, with only a portion of its greatness showcased here.

Admittedly, the comments do make sense. It’s common knowledge that creating demos requires a significant amount of the team’s focus. If a game plans to showcase itself at consumer conventions, it can’t just offer a short gameplay experience of two or three hours. That simply won’t suffice when attendees are patiently waiting in line. This seems to be just a subpar demo, which is unfortunate. However, it may not be something to worry too much about in the end.

Ubisoft has given us our first look at The Sky Breaker, the first DLC story pack for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. In it, a strange shadow will appear in the sky and threaten the Na’vi clans, who just can’t seem to get a break. It comes out next month on PS5, on July 16th.

A new part of the Upper Plains called “The Heart of the Plains” can be reached by taking the Sky Breaker. Some well-known biomes have changed into new types, and there are also many new ones. Of course, the RDA has also sent out new types of enemies, so you need to be careful. The good news is that not everything is bad. During the Na’vi Festival of Games, players can look forward to timed tasks that are a little less scary. Secrets of the Spires, another story pack, is still planned to be added to the game at some point.
