Nintendo Thinks E3 is Still an Important Event

There’s been a huge talk about how Electronic Entertainment Expo is losing relevancy especially after Sony pulled out of the event. However, one of the most unlikely companies to take a stand on E3’s side has been Nintendo. That’s right, Nintendo still thinks that E3 is a very important event and something that needs to be held at high relevancy.

“E3, those five days, is the opportunity for the world to find out what’s new for video games as entertainment. And during that time, we generate more engagement than…whether it’s CES or Comic-Con, or other big entertainment events,” Reggie “My body is Ready” Fils-Aime told IGN. “People tune in to find out what’s new and to have first playable experiences for our industry. That’s why E3 is important to Nintendo.”

Considering how Nintendo has showcased important announcements on their Direct programs. It’s a bit unorthodox to see the company defending the event as much as they are. Fils-Aime also talked about how Nintendo always tries to innovate whenever they present themselves at the event.

Whether it being through the way they communicate their messages and announcements or how they bring their games to the event for everyone to try out and enjoy, Nintendo has always seen E3 as an important event. This can be seen not only by how they have delivered their special E3 Edition of the Nintendo Direct, but also on the booths dedicated towards games like The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey.

“And so everyone’s watching, we drive innovation, we leverage the elements, so for us it’s a very effective opportunity to deliver our message, and therefore it’s a bit of a no-brainer for us to participate. Now, what’s important as an industry, though, is that E3 in total continues to innovate and it continues to be that leading opportunity to drive consumer engagement in this way. So that’s why we participate. That’s why I sit on the board of the ESA and help drive some of this thinking. It’s important to us.”

Do you think Reggie FIls-Aime has a point? Do you think that E3 is falling out of relevancy? You can take a look at IGN’s interview right here and leave a comment below about your thoughts.

I always wanted to be a journalist who listens. The Voice of the Unspoken and someone heavily involved in the gaming community. From playing as a leader of a competitive multi-branch team to organizing tournaments for the competitive scene to being involved in a lot of gaming communities. I want to keep moving forward as a journalist.

Fans of Final Fantasy have been disputing for decades over a variety of topics, such as whether game VIII is the finest or which one contains the best minigames. But something fresh has the community in a tizzy, and this time it’s a 19-second trailer for the upcoming Final Fantasy XVI that’s energizing fans along with the reappearance of certain well-worn and recognizable talking points.

If it weren’t for the fissure that protagonist Clive skillfully navigates in the video, this narrative might have been about Torgal, a great canine companion. That’s right, we have returned to the discussion of the Squeeze Gap, the most heinous error in game design (in the eyes of some fans).

Others pointed out that you can see through the gap that this is an intentional design choice and does not, in fact, hide a loading screen. In the colorful comments section of the aforementioned Tweet, some people complained about the inclusion of yet another Squeeze Gap on current-gen PCs.If you have nothing better to do, follow us down the rabbit hole of quote-retweets.

Sincerity be damned, we don’t really care either way, but it is odd for Square Enix to release an official promo for a highly anticipated game that shows half of a character squirming through a small space.As always, the music is spot on; praise where praise is due. On June 22, Final Fantasy XVI will debut for PlayStation 5.

What do you think of the squeeze gaps generally and the squeezegate incident specifically?

In order to decide which publisher published the best games, Metacritic calculates ratings for all the games that were released in the previous calendar year. The website that collects review ratings for all popular media has done the math, and Sony Interactive Entertainment came out on top for 2022.

Yes, Sony’s first-party initiatives from the previous year allowed it to “no issue” claim the top spot on Metacritic’s list.  The 2022 release schedule for the platform holder averaged 85.6 points overall, with all of its PC ports scoring in the website’s “green score” range.

The business did indeed have a successful year in 2017. We had a fantastic trio of original games: God of War Ragnarok, Gran Turismo 7, and Horizon Forbidden West, all of which were of very high caliber. But in addition to that, the firm also launched The Last of Us: Part I and a number of PC ports, including God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man, and Uncharted: The Legacy of Thieves Collection, all of which received positive reviews from critics. MLB The Show 22 had the lowest metascore of any Sony game last year, according to Metacritic, but it still earned a respectable 77.

According to Metacritic, these are the top 10 publishers for 2022:

  1. Sony Interactive Entertainment
  2. Paradox Interactive
  3. Activision Blizzard
  4. Focus Entertainment
  5. Take-Two Interactive
  6. Capcom
  7. SEGA
  8. Annapurna Interactive
  9. Humble Games
  10. Devolver Digital
