CA! Radio E3 2017: Sony

CA! Radio’s E3 coverage continues with our recap and impressions of the surprisingly safe PlayStation conference, where we all found plenty to enjoy despite its lack of excitement. This became all the more jarring when we considered how action packed their announcements have been over the last two years.

Aside from the reveals of a full-on Shadow of the Colossus remake and the Monster Hunter series coming back to home consoles, everything shown was either expected, a bit too long-winded, or could certainly do with more narrative assistance on behalf of Sony.

Sadly, the most interesting reveals were reduced to the pre-show, like Yakuza KiwamiHidden Agenda and Undertale coming to PS4 and Vita. And while we all agree that Days Gone is nice to look at, we’re all struggling to find reasons to care.

I, myself, think it’s suffering from a bit of an identity crisis, atop two lackluster showings where the unexplained gameplay scenes treaded entirely too much familiar territory. I can’t shake the feeling I’ve played this game 100 times already and zombie fatigue set in many, many years ago.

CA! Radio E3 2017: Ubisoft

CA! Radio’s E3 coverage continues with our recap and impressions of the surprisingly emotional Ubisoft conference, which not only featured new IP and long-awaited sequels but depicted the company’s reinvigorated artistic vision as they attempt to stave off a corporate takeover by Vivendi.

Witnessing the creative director of Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle in tears is perhaps my favorite E3 2017 moment. Here’s a guy who got to live out his dream and work alongside the legendary Shigeru Miyamoto on a Mario game, but not just that — this insane concept of combining Mario and the Rabbids shouldn’t work on paper, but the crowd ate it up and gave it a thunderous applause. The game looks fantastic, to boot!

CA! Radio E3 2017: Bethesda

CA! Radio’s E3 coverage continues with our recap and impressions of the short and sweet Bethesda conference, which covered a lot of ground across every platform in a short amount of time.

Unlike the other 5 pressers, every game shown is either a brand new release (in the case of The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind) or coming our way in 2017.

Episode 1 of 6 (Electronic Arts) can be found here.

Each of the six major conferences will appear as individual episodes and follow a similar format. We put a LOT of time into making this happen — more so for Chuck, as he had to record and edit these things — so thank you all for listening!

Was The Evil Within 2 Just Leaked by a Reddit Ad?

We all knew The Evil Within 2 was coming, but the game’s confirmation appears to have been leaked ahead of tomorrow’s Bethesda conference by a premature Reddit ad.

Though it’s since been pulled, numerous Reddit users have confirmed spotting the ad on their end and (of course) quickly grabbed screenshots for proof.
