Ganker HYPE TRAIN
It will be cancelled again
E3 is doomed. We're in the death throes phase
dead on arrival, the concept of games convention for press is overdue in the west.
Gamescom realized it and turned it into a twitch meetup.
At this point they'd have to play publishers to still provide something or exhibit their games on that shitshow .
Booths used to cost 100k - 1,000k 10 years ago
>Requires Covid vaccine to attend
It is basically cancelled already.
Quick rundown? What is E3
basically an event where microsoft shows games that'll never come out while a bunch of other worthless companies stand in the corner and do nothing.
t. Never attended
How worthless do you have to consider yourself to actually want to go to e3?
That's not fair. Devolver also puts out its annual shitpost.
soon it will be replaced by BIGMODE
Worthless clowns, I don't think they had a single game which interested me
Gato Roboto was alright
That game hurts my eyes.
Electronics Entertainment Expo. A week-long convention where techies (mostly vidya-related ones) gather to show off current and future projects in hopes of both pleasing investors and growing their fanbases.
This is the state of this board
This board was better before E3 was a real thing. Maybe anon was in coma for 15 years
anon, e3 is older than Ganker
>E3 was a real thing.
E3 is over 20 years old anon
I said a "real thing", not a "thing"
>It's actually full of doomposting normies who want an unfiltered Twitter
People making jokes and pretending to be retarded? On MY Ganker??? Well I never!
A relic of better days. Used to be where hardware and software devs debued their new shit. But now they just do it all on twitter.
A event where game devs show fake trailers to fool gullible people into buying buggy games that look uglier than it.
Please be fucking bait. It's been only 3 years.
This is bait, this has to be bait.
The absolute state of Ganker
Good bait. Here’s your (you)
How fucking new
An event where Microsoft has a celebrity show off a sports car
When Sony decides to hold a concert, and then Microsoft does celebrity interviews for 3 hours. Then Nintendo shows people playing video games in their own separate event.
Extremely Excruciating Ejaculation
It is a game convention for people your age.
4/5 bait, but this is all it takes to get you's these days
but where is E1 and E2?
10/10 bait, Jesus Christ
I cant believe this ended up being bait, its just funny
fake vydia movie traliers events have been boring for a while
Yeah, no. Not after this shit from last year:
I couldn’t get past 2 minutes of their diversity and inclusion bullshit. That just makes me want to kill myself.
Maybe you should. Nobody will miss you,
I'll miss him.
just do it then loser
is it a sign? are they trying to say it will be kino?
How irresponsible. Don't they know we're in the middle of a pandemic?
Even the most liberal talking heads in vidya like Schreier were calling bullshit on E3 hiding behind COVID this year to justify virtual-only (this was before they outright cancelled E3 2022), even before large-scale restriction rollbacks began in America.
nah, normies right now are pretending like it never happened. schlomo needs wagies back in cagies i suppose.
What is there to show?
Cringe, i imagine
Squilliam threads unironically the best part of E3
>tfw i missed last year's
it was the first i miss since day one, will send next time around for redemption.
When they announce the Video Game Awards, thats when the hype train should start.
The last game awards that felt hype was 2018 with joker in smash and ctr nitro fueled. The series x reveal and sonic 2 trailer are the only highlights they've had in the past 4 years tbh
They already did? Geoff announced it like a month ago
im surprised doritos pope didnt ultimately take over the summer video games news.
his summer games fest should have been the new E3
Tbf SGF is not very good, too many shit for some okay games, and the shitty games are the ones that pays the bills, so Geoff can't get rid of them
First Summer Game Fest was kinda fun but holy shit the next one gave me cancer in my syphilis
We'll never get another E3 like 2016. E3 was starting to get so that it wasn't even fun to watch for the cringe and now there's not even really an E3 at all, just some slick sideshow presentation where some dim bitch talks about the nothing games we should get excited about. I don't even really want to watch the next one, it'll just depress me.
>tfw WON MIRRON TROOPS was 12 years ago
>1 year away
Who cares at this stage?
For the last 3 fucking years game confernce's have been dogshit, even if it does happen, why should next year be any different?
>calling people "consumers"
Ah, I can already see this will be a very soulful experience.
Didn't even notice that at first glance. They could've sugarcoated it better instead of making it sound so corporate.
That's kind of the point. E3 wasn't open to consumers before. It was a trade floor only for devs and industry figures/gays in journalism. It would be weird to call it "customers" because you don't really buy anything at E3. Not defending it, fuck E3, but that's technically the word for it.
>calling people "consumers"
You don't want to risk offending all the consumers that aren't people. Like fatties and trannies.
Well yeah. That's what you are. If you want to pretend you're doing something valuable nor your life is worth something either be religious or a scientist.
Sadly almost no corporation calls you a customer anymore. Even that fat gay Reggie at Nintendo always called customers consumers.
Of course. Customers is a term for 20th century industrial product based economy.
You buy something once have it immediately be yours and be done with it.
Consumer implies a process over time. You consume a 5 course meal over time. One bite at a time. A sign of all industries switching to service based economy.
Consumer and subscriber are the new words. Costumer sounds too unpersonal and implies no loyalty to the BRAND Remember pic related is the current business school of thought.
Customers have standards that need to be met before you can have their money, consumers mindlessly consume whatever is shoved in front of them because it’s new. Video gaming, more than any other industry, is an industry of consumers.
>separated business and consumer days
we gamescom now. it's dead jim
>10 months from now
So if I were a hamster that would be half of my lifespan. That's too long.
why is a hamster posting here??
>"E3 is back!"
>most of videogame companies: "sorry at this point we don't care about E3 so we won't attend to it"
Don't give a shit. Also I fucking hate anime.
>if you aren't 5 tmes boosted for covid you can't go
This shit will be cancelled long before it's scheduled to begin.
good shit, I get free tickets and I'm going to drink a 4Loko as is tradition. Checking out the bizarre peripherals is my favorite part.
But will they have special booths for me to dilate in like GDQ?
what can they show if all the big names have pulled out and done their own thing?
The last 3 years of digital/bootleg E3 haven't been as fun as usual, and I don't think it has much to do with the quality of the announcements. We've had shit E3s in the past and they've always been fun to watch and make fun of, but digital E3 and game fest just haven't been the same and it feels like nobody gives a fuck for the most part. I hope next year makes E3 fun again now that it's actually back. I also hope comfytheatre is back next time, this year felt like the most soulless one ever without them
it's been over a decade man, let it go
I still enjoyed watching the last couple of in person ones though. I just used that image cause it's cool, not that I actually expect it to be that good again.
there's no reason for this to exist anymore, everyone important has their own digital showcase.
It's to give publishers and developers a chance to network.
E3 just needs to drop the pretense and become a general gamer convention if it wants to stay relevant.
Masks required btw
but of course, we're in a pandemic you know.
I went to AX at the LACC and masks were required but not enforced well at all.
Biden just declared the Pandemic over. If they say something I will remind them that they are disagreeing with the president who supported by Dr.Fauci. So if you have a problem with that you are literally an alt-right Nazi Qanon conspiracy chud
What, so gamers can get shafted yet again with false promises?
E3 stopped being good after the first time it died in the mid 2000s
I will pray every single day for the E3 cringekino to comeback strong as fuck, it's the only thing that can save gaming.
Thats fine and all, but we're still in a pandemic. Mask mandate and requiring vaccine proof are a MUST.
shut the fuck up, literally nobody cares anymore.
canada of all places decided Covid is over as of October 1st. stop holding on desperately like a chud who relishes the possibility that society at large will be shut down so he doesn’t have to go outside and expose his hideous attempt at forcing the public to observe his autogynephilia fetish.
Sir pls make the shill thread less obvios is needful thenk
After all those wet fart shows and events like Summer Game Fest i am actually glad E3 is back.
It somewhat forced publishers to make a solid, multi hour showcases of upcoming titles and games and it happens day after day with all of them, so there will be AT LEAST one or two interesting games to see.
With it being day after day of different game shows, all of those big companies were forced to show something interesting to be the "best" one and "most viewed one", to the point even Sony, which backed off from E3, just so happened to have their own show on the next fucking day lmao. Because it was when everyone was watching.
Big fucking deal. E3 was irrelevant the day every publisher and company worth a shit realized they can just make their own presentations.
>Nintendo: Nintendo Directs
>Sony: Absolute State of Play
>M$: Who the fuck cares lol
>Capcom: *rolls die* MonHun, SF, RE
>all nip games: TGS
>indie shit: Nindies
>literally everyone else: Twitter/garden gnometube
Kind of weird how Zelda will release before E3. Without a major 2016 E3 blowout like BotW1 had.
The only decent thing about E3 is that it motivates Nintendo to give half a shit. Look how fucking awful their news cycle was in 2020 and again this year.
E3 2017 had Super Mario Odyssey as its crowning garden gnomeel, albeit not quite on the level of BotW at 2016. But 2016 was special because BotW is LITERALLY the only thing they had worth a damn or even a fraction of a damn. What else was there?
Cool, it's Pokemon, nothing we need to dwell on here (especially for a BW2 type situation).
>Mario Party Star Rush
Cool, NdCube is STILL not reading the room yet. Next.
>Paper Mario Color Splash
Cool, Tanabe and Tabata defiantly made Sticker Star 2 like pissy spiteful brats despite knowing that basically nobody liked the first one.
>a BW2 type situation
Don't you dare compare USUM to those masterpieces.
>Sony and Nintendo just had their huge State of Plays bullshit
>E3 is happening now too
wha tthe fuck is even going to be shown lmao, what can they even show
who has anything ready that they haven't already shown? And if people do show anything, its just going to be literally shit for 4-6 years from now what the fuck
>I'll have a baby by the time E3 comes back
It's a weird feeling.
>kills the whole concept of E3
by making shitty western game industry irrelevant forever.
But E3, western or not, was always dominated by Japanese games.
Western games almost always fail to grab or at least keep the attention of audiences.
Holy shit is the gundam unicorn fag coming back?
I can't believe they went from e3 to e32023. What happened to e4 - e32022?
bringing it back to announce the new Nintendo system
>E3 hype starts now
bro IT'S SEPTEMBER
...are we really that close to that year already? Wasn't 2015 the future with flying skateboards and such just one of these days? Where did my time go?
>Where did my time go?
It only passes faster
Stop wasting time here and get a life while you still can
2019 was supposed to be the year of Replicants, off-world colonies, and flying cars.
Look what we got instead..
Whats the point? sony and nintendo won't be there again
Nintendo usually shows up with booths. Sony used to do that too but didn't the last couple of E3s. Microsoft is always there because they have the Microsoft theater and dont need to rent floorspace in LACC.
>Los Angeles Convention Center
Literally a homeless reservoir.
Yes, I'm sure this time they'll hold it and not find a reason to cancel it like monkeypox or whatever new disease shows up.
but biden said the pandemic is over so I can lick as many poles as I want
>May 2023: Don't get too excited for E3, as major companies say no new games will be showcased this year and the event will focus on games that have already been announced.
oops i don't have to "reed" anymore!
E3 sucked, let it stay dead
it may sucked but it always brought memorable moments
Yeah you're right, it was worth it for the memes
Good. I miss Nintendo Teehouse streams.
>In current year
It'll actually be current year +1
It is always the current year
holy fuck no one cares lmao the state of this dying medium
>an year away
fuck yeah! I love e3
It should have stayed dead. Fuck gaming "culture"
Who fucking cares, all these thrash companies are going to show me their newest mobile cashgrabs using their IPs while announcing DLC for their live service games released 5 years ago UPPITY FUCKING DOO
Nuclear holocaust is around the corner, though
Why are you happy about corpo shill fests?
The only thing I look forward to in E3 is Nintendo Treehouse and even those were lacklustre the past couple of times.
>corona-chan and monkeypox-kun have a baby
>E3 is fuuuuucked into oblivion
somehow I have a feeling this pandemic won't go away anytime soon
It’s already gone you fucking stupid woman. How do people like you still exist? Fuck me.
I remember people saying there was no point to E3 and I thought they were so dumb. The tune has changed now that they got a taste of what it's like with no E3 and how boring that Geoff guy's summer game event is.
sony won't be there so what's the point?
E3 is dogshit
Love them or hate them, it won't be the same without Sony.
does the outfit make him play better?
A FUCKING WHITE MALE!
i feel like a dinosaur overe here
been to ects
>seperated business and consumer days
fucking finally. Letting any retarded normie in E3 was so fucking stupid. It's supposed to be a media show with only media/industry people allowed, not filled to the brim with obese lardwhale """""gamers""""
>imagine the smell
Today I will remind them
Nothing will ever top Konami's 2010 E3 showcase. Needs to be archived in a museum.
what the fuck is this? Boomers actually watched this shit?
yes just wait till its fucking toi hot to think before launching your show
>Implying nuclear war wont happen by then.
>Ganker HYPE TRAIN
have a nice day, gay.
Now to hope Russia doesn't do anything fucking retarded so we can become comfy again.
I don't know why they didn't do it this year. Sports events have been in-person and full capacity for about 2 years now.
They got to experience two years of freedom from live shows. Pre-recorded presentations give the companies total control over show quality, ensure their brand is never shown in a bad light and save them an assload of money in the process, going back to live is a tough pill to swallow.
Do any of the big publishers even do conferences anymore?
Isn't Los Angeles infested with homeless nowdays ?
Who fucking cares anymore. Keighley's Summer Games Fest and the other livestreams have been doing just fine, if not better, in its absence.
Weren't you guys crying like gays the last few Keighley events?
There's no hype without a Nintendo DIrect
>fully vaccinated and 3 masks are required
>plus vaccinated video game card
E3 deserves to die unless they bring back booth babes.
I see you were sucked into this clown dimension along with me. we're never getting booth babes back, buddy.
This, it's not a convention without booth babes. At least some publishers still understand the appeal.
>At least some publishers still understand the appeal
Glad to see Japan's still keepin' it real.
did i get scammed
>full force elebs now
>where the games at?!
Doritos Pope killed E3 so he can shill his fake industry nuthugging event
