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.

After about a month of work, a couple of Google employees have successfully hacked the PS Portal, PlayStation’s handheld streaming solution. Their project is not set for public release anytime soon, but the hack is purely software-based, eliminating the need for hardware exploitation.

Andy Nguyen, a cloud vulnerability researcher, and Calle Svensson, a security engineer, shared their latest project on Twitter. They successfully ran the PSP emulator PPSSPP on the PS Portal. They presented the 2005 PSP classic Grand Theft Auto: Liberty Stories.

As a wireless streaming device, the idea of playing games on the PS Portal without a PS5 providing the power was considered impossible. It’s quite surprising how quickly Nguyen and Svensson have overcome this initial hurdle. It remains to be seen where their efforts will take them, but we will definitely keep an eye on their progress. Nguyen expressed that there is still a lot of work left to do.

Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has teased an upcoming collaboration with Fortnite Festival set to be unveiled soon. More pertinent to our specific attention to detail, Gaga has also admitted to a mistake made around four years ago, indicating her keen awareness of the franchise’s significant value.

Gaga shared a mesmerizing picture of her character in Fortnite and also retweeted a post from 2019 where she asked her fans, “What’s fortnight?”. She finally got the chance to correctly spell the title of the game, allowing us to breathe a sigh of relief after waiting anxiously.

Lady Gaga will be teaming up with other top celebrities to maximize their presence on the Fortnite platform. Travis Scott once hosted a live concert in Battle Royale a couple of years ago, while the Weeknd just premiered the music video for the song “Popular” at the Fortnite Festival.

Reflecting on Street Fighter 5’s tumultuous launch, Capcom looks back eight years later

For those who may not recall, nearly eight years ago today, Street Fighter 5 was released in 2016 in a rather incomplete state. The content available was impressive initially, but the limited number of characters and lack of single-player game modes stood out. Capcom expresses regret for the entire situation, offering apologies years later for having “betrayed” players’ expectations.

On SF5’s eighth anniversary, the developers must be feeling nostalgic. They recently posted a Japanese-language tweet looking back on the mistakes made and the challenges that were eventually overcome. The number of playable characters has grown to 45, and the game has seen various enhancements, including the introduction of new abilities such as V Skills/Trigger II and V Shift. Even now, hundreds of thousands of players still choose to play this game instead of the newer Street Fighter 6.
Have you had the chance to try out Street Fighter 5 since it was first released? What do you recall about the game’s reception? Take a trip down memory lane in the comments section below.
