Terminal Lance “E3 Convention”
June 13, 2017
Well it’s that time of the year again, when all of the Lance Corporals get together and all the biggest brands appealing to 18-24 year old males present their newest and latest creations to an adoring crowd.
Wait, that’s not actually a thing…?
Well, at the very least, the real E3 unveils new video games, which is kind of the same thing and also pretty neat. I’m sure those of you that have been following Terminal Lance for a while now know that I play a lot of video games. What can I say, it’s just part of who I am. I grew up on the likes of Mario, Resident Evil 2 and Final Fantasy VII and continue the hobby to this day.
I thought this year’s E3 was a little stale. I’m not much for Microsoft, so the new XBOX ONE X wasn’t particularly exciting for me and Sony failed to show anything overtly groundbreaking. I was hoping we’d get to see some new gameplay footage of The Last of Us II or Death Stranding, or perhaps even an announcement like Bloodborne 2… But oh well.
Nintendo had (in my opinion) the best showing today with Super Mario Odyssey and announcing Metroid Prime 4
oh my fucking god, which I’m way too excited about. Also, Sombrero Mario might actually be my favorite thing ever.
On a sidenote, I might be onto something with this Lance Corporal Convention idea…
