E3 2019 Predictions & Wishes

Marvel Studios and Square-Enix are promising to finally reveal the Avengers game (or games) at E3.

We getting a Fortnite Thor costume?

I'm hoping at this point for a Thor costume in Dauntless. It's a perfect fit.

Nah, I mean Thor as he appeared while playing Fortnite.

Yeah, I'm fine with that. And Mjolnir and Stormbreaker weapon skins. Because a game where you can throw an axe and summon it back to you in mid-air is just begging for a Thor skin.

I just want news on the next Yoko Taro vehicle.

It's the Raid content in the next FFXIV expansion.

Noo, Chocobo Farming 14 does not count!

E3 Wish: a new Rayman game--a real one, not one of these stupid mobile games. Rayman Legends 2: More Rayman.

While I'm wishing on Ubisoft, how about another Child of Light-type game? Doesn't have to be a sequel but something whimsical like that game.

A new Rayman would be fantastic!

EA Play schedule:

All times Pacific.

There's a whole lot of "I'm not interested" in that there list.

Nice!

Can't wait to hear what they have for Sims 4.

My thoughts exactly. When I used to watch their keynote stream I would spend a lot of it just tuning out and checking back in after they got through all the Battlefield and sportsball stuff. Now I know that 9:30-10:00 is all I have to tune in for.

Yeah that's intriguing. What would they have to talk about for Sims4 at a national E3 conference, and to wrap up their presentation?

Intrigued!

Maybe it’s coming to VR! That actually would be kinda crazy...

Well they already patched first-person mode into Sims 4, so anything is possible.

I suppose I should be fair that the Sportsball and Sims stuff at least makes sense because they are pretty big money-makers for EA. I have friends that don't really video game posting hype about any upcoming Sims announcement on the social media.

It's just weird that it's basically information about nothing but games that are already out, save for Star Wars. Otherwise it's all updates, which... seems to be what Ubisoft will be spending a lot of E3 on as well.

I guess this is the result of games being a live-service model. Also, kind of telling that there's info for Battlefield 5 and Apex Legends but nothing for Anthem.

Yeah, that was the thing that jumped out at me too. Pretty noteworthy omission.

I think it is dead in all but name.

Nothing at all since they aren't at E3 this year They are just doing some streams.

Weeeellll.... they're across the street from E3, as they've been the last few years. EA Play is basically them insisting they'll take their ball and play by themselves, but curiously remain in the vicinity of all the other kids in the playground, their ball occasionally bouncing into everyone else's game.

They say they're doing their own thing, but are they really?

Anthem's definitely in hot water. There was the story circulated earlier about Anthem falling out of the top fifty most-played multiplayer games on Xbox One, and at the same time, add-on purchases on PSN are through the floor. More people are buying currency for Dead By Daylight, DC Universe Online, Brawlhalla, and Far Cry New Dawn than are buying currency for Anthem. No one is happy about that.

That said, EA has repeatedly insisted to their shareholders that they're investing in Anthem. The other big Anthem story that's been going around (that its launch was so bad that EA is reevaluating all their launches) was so badly reported as to basically be made-up.

I wouldn't put a fork in Anthem just yet. We'll see what EA has to say to investors in six months.

Oh, and as far as the Sims 4 goes, there's not really a big mystery there. EA has promised 20 new content drops and expansions for the game this year. They've gotta show that off at some point.

Plus the number of E3s where they didn't show something for the Sims is probably single digits if at all. No reason to stop now.

How long did they make Sims 3 content? did they ever stop? It's only been 5 years, that cow has still got plenty of milk left.

UNREALISTIC WISHES:
- Prince Of Persia is back.
- State Of Play announces that If you buy a Playstation first-party title digitally, you'll be guaranteed to get the Ps5 version for free, or for a discount.
- FF7R Part One releases Dec 2019, Part Two releases Dec 2020.
- Anthem to do...literally anything.

REALISTIC WISHES:
- Watch_Dogs 3 announced for a late September release.
- Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel as either playable characters or prominent NPCs in Square Enix's Avengers game.
- Gameplay footage of Jedi Fallen Order that *doesn't* make me feel bored.

Apparently a new Darksiders is on the way.

Come on, THQ! Anime Darksiders! Make it happen! My body is ready.

I was about to write that off as another leak of Darksiders 2 being ported to Switch.

Weird that they'd announce a new direction so soon but whatever. I'm in and prepared to sit in this tub of over-drawn demon sludge by my lonesome.
