Watching the E3 press conferences live is one of our favorite video game past times. This year all of our snark was captured in our own private live chat, so let's make the best and dumbest of it public, shall we?
So everything is going well at the Sony press conference. Really well actually. At this point there have been a number of surprises leading up to the Playstation VR segment. On screen we see a promising space combat game... (Trailer is below)
Justin Lacey - halo looks weird.
Coop - titanfall
Aaron McNeal - xenoblade VR
Josh Lee - Which video game is this?
JL - titanfall? eve?
Justin Gifford - #yearofthemechsandhooks
This is looking awesome
At this point everyone kind of sits up and pays attention. Jaws are on the floor. Drooling begins. Everyone wants to jump in the cockpit.
JL - i heard josh's boner.
da fuq is this?
JG - The schwing is strong with this one.
AM - what dis?
JL - starhawk?
Coop - that won't make you sick in VR
JL - i want to be sick in vr
Josh - I don't know but I'm about to blow
JG - Me too
AM - some man's sky
Haha this has to be a Sony exclusive
Sony is killing it. We are convinced that this is another surprise announcement of a game we haven't heard of or a continuation of a franchise. Either way, Microsoft doesn't stand a chance.
Coop - Phil Spencer is crying right now
JL - "save me scorpio"
Josh - spAce Combat
JL - grapple confirmed.
dude got out of his plane!
AM - grapple, check
JL - dude spaced that dude.
Coop - this looks more fun than halo
JL - holy shit. it's a killzone yeah?
Coop - bahahahaha
Coop - oh yeah, this might be killzone
Josh - Feels like it
Yeah, right. It's totally Killzone.
We're still trying to figure out which game this is. We have some ideas and things are looking really good for the Killzone (Sony exclusive) franchise right about of now. All other ideas are being shut down.
AM - space of duty
JL - lol infinite warfare. that's cute.
JG - Thought MS had a decent show, but fml Sony
JL - not ethan?!
AM - kill dudes, ethan!
Coop - grapplespacezone
JL - that's a good name, Coop.
wait go back to the plane. i mean this is awesome. but this is totally killzone now.
Coop - where's the helgast? i'd be ok without them because they actually suck
Josh - Star Citizen
JL - ...no way. no fucking way. star citizen wouldn't be this fun
JL - goddam!
knee to the helmet!
AM - spaceknee
JL - this is in vr?
The Infinite Revelation
The logo confirms our worst nightmare.
Josh - No way
Coop - noooooooooooooooooo
Josh - NO
JL - FUCK.
Josh - HOLY SHIT
Coop - dammit
JL - we have all failed
AM - SPACE OF DUUUUUUTY
Josh - lolololol
Coop - did we all just get excited over call of duty?
JL - i'm so disappointed in my life
Coop - i'm so ashamed
Josh - They got us. All of us.
Cole Monroe - LMAO
JL - Every Last of Us
Coop - well shit.
Watch the demo we reacted to:
In the time since this pivotal moment in our lives, our crew is still a bit defensive about Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. We can confirm for sure that there is at least one story mission in the game that makes us really excited and we'd probably shell out $10 or so just for that mission. That doesn't mean we necessarily are buying the game, though. However, you can be damn sure we'll be paying much closer attention to the full scope of the campaign just to find out how much awesome space combat is really in this game. How many of us will end up buying Infinite Warfare? More than were going to before E3, that's for sure.
