Soon we'll have the E3

We are going to talk about a big meeting of the video game. So yes it is an often criticized event. However, I think E3 is still a special moment in the life of a gamer.

Personally, I have been watching the conferences live for a few years. Thanks to Twitch, we can see a lot of things and beautiful things!

It's an event you can't miss. I'll give you some details for this special edition.

 

First of all, this edition is very special because it is completely free and no fan can visit it. Everything is online. 100% online.

They created something pretty cool though. An application will be released, we will / have to register and then see all the conferences, events and other video game candy. For those who are not interested, there will be traditional platforms like Youtube, Twitch or even Facebook to follow the conferences if that is the only thing that interests the viewer.

They have published a lot of things about the possibilities of this application:

1. Exhibitor booth: you will find key information, announcements, special events, etc.

2. Lounges: we will be entitled to a place where all the participants can be gathered for more relaxing moments.

3. Forums: traditional place for discussions (yes also disputes) for sharing between participants.

4. Leaderboards: interactions to make viewers want to use the application

5. Profile creation: as its name suggests, create a profile, avatar etc.

 

A rather complete and interactive application to give fans the opportunity to stay on the sofa and still live an unforgettable moment. It promises to be pretty fun.

Note that on the E3 site, fans will be able to register from June 3! Do not forget it if you want to have the possibility of being in total immersion!

Since around mid-May there has been no big news as to the participants as exhibitors, here is the list:

Nintendo; XBox; Ubisoft; Square Enix; Verizon; T2; Capcom; Warner Bros; Sega; Bandai Namco; GearBox; XSpeed ​​Games; Mythical; Freedom Games; Net Ease Games; Turtle Beach; OtterBox; Devious Eye Entertainment; binge

So much for the participants. For Nintendo we could hope for something concerning Zelda's birthday. After that of Mario all fans are waiting for new features for this legendary franchise. Square Enix could talk about Final Fantasy 16 (release date for example?) Or see if the info concerning a Souls-like FF will see the light of day. Sega might also have something to tell us since it's Sonic's 30th birthday this year. We are also sure that the other speakers have a lot to say and we can't wait to see it all.

Last info.

BoTRLTV really wants to do everything to be closer to its community and these events. So a registration was made to co-stream the event. Hopefully, the channel will be eligible to broadcast the event on Twitch. You will of course be informed as soon as it becomes official.

Otherwise, you will have all the information as quickly as possible because there is a madman (me) who will look at all this and will share his impressions with you.

Have a good game in the meantime!

E3 1st Day (12.06) Ubisoft and more

If there are important moments for a gamer, E3 is one of them. It's a certainty. So your servant condenses everything to you in a beautiful summary that I present to you here.

I wrote by hand during each live to keep the best. And here it is:

Initially, we were treated to a multitude of presentations about Ubisoft, its operation, some of the key employees and gameplay. To keep us waiting between each session, we had the right to an in-game moment. A walking viking, a moving car, boat or plane. It was never long but always very controlled. So it slackened the pace a bit, which was necessary at times to be able to take full advantage of each announcement. Now let's move on to the concrete. What does the games say?

Cool announcement for Brawlhalla, ninja turtles will be one of the playable characters. We got a glimpse of what these turtles will be capable of and it promises to be epic. For The Crew 2, we will be entitled to the next season in July. With routes from the east coast of the USA. We are also given figures on games streamed, 2 billion assassinations (great), more than 10 billion km traveled and more than 160 quadrillion points of experiences gained!

 

Ubisoft Forward

First game shown in more detail, Watch Dogs Legion, Bloodline. A cutscene where we see Wrench stealing a device from Aiden Pearce. Himself being caught and tortured to retrieve this object. We then have the right to action, explosions and other epic moments. All this "available soon"

 

We come to Rainbow Six Extraction.

As its name suggests, extraction missions will have to be done. The alien parasite has evolved, humans and their weapons too. Extractions must be made in a three-way co-op. Different monsters were presented including rather classic genres like those that explode, those that fly, those that are huge and bogus. We are then shown gameplay that seems complete. You have to detect monsters, know how to get them discreetly, attack at the right time and always be on the alert. There are points where we can refuel to be able to continue the mission. The game is released on September 16. The stake also lies in its evolution. You can have nice upgrades and good weapons, but if you are captured, you can lose everything and you have to start all over again afterwards. Video full of promises and very well done.

 

Rocksmith +

After Rocksmith, this is its evolution. If we have a guitar and a phone that's fine, you've got everything. The phone can be used as a microphone that can tell you what you are doing right or wrong. They've pushed the system to its limits by giving direct community help, very detailed recommendations, and equally well-done in-game help. A huge library of songs, you can create your own arrangements and perfect them. A Closed Beta is available by registration now.

 

Riders Republic

A game that looks really cool. You can snowboard, cross bike, wingsuit or even paraglide. In the race, in exploration, in an arena to do tricks, in competition. There is something for everyone. There is also the possibility of having a hang-glider with reactors or a bicycle with reactors. There were no more details about this but it is surely an upgrade to do. This game also seems very promising and will be able to rage more than one I'm sure. If the mechanics are well done it will be able to meet a great success.

 

Just Dance 2022

Todrick Hall, choreographer, musician, singer and dancer and and and, presents his work with the team of Just Dance. He rewrote his hit Nails, hair, hips, heels for this game and naturally he also created the choreography. It promises to be a game for everyone and no matter why you play, you will have fun. Sport, fun, dance, learn to dance, the game will suit without worry.

 

Assassin's Creed Valhalla

A new expansion will be released, Siege of Paris. As ambitious as the Vikings were back then, this expansion will have a lot to offer. Between missions, weapons, clothes, enemies and intrigue, players will have plenty to do. We will also have the opportunity to travel with this game. A journey through time that will give players the chance to see and play for themselves the life of the time with historically correct moments. Small nice detail it must be admitted.

We then have the right to trailers concerning the series / films on which Ubisoft is working. I did not notice too much because I did not find it interesting. Make way for games!

 

Far cry 6

We are entitled to a cutscene to see even more complexity concerning El President. Dani takes her friends and others in search of help and brings them back in a fishing boat which must allow them to escape. However the boat is stopped. We hear that the captain is being assassinated. El President comes down and talks about him and his father going fishing together. His father kept only the big and beautiful fish and released the others. This is to make the metaphor with what he has just "caught". El President's son was among those who fled. He takes his son with whom he has a conversation. On his way up he told one of his soldiers to "release the other fish" so to kill them. Then no more light and gunshots. End. Very good time and we see that in writing the team behind this game knows how to do it very well.


We are then entitled to a presentation where the player seems to be some of the most emblematic villains of the series. Being part of the season pass it will therefore probably be possible to play small campaigns in the skin of the villains of some of the Far Cry games.



Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope


A huge sprawling purple villain is after some lovely little stars. Mario, Luigi, Rabbids and others set off on a galactic and crazy quest to save the entire galaxy from this threat. The proposed design is that of a pre-Alpha and already it promises to be better than the first in the series. We will certainly have fun playing and we promise, those who played the first will not be tired of the second. Game that won't arrive until 2022, however.



Last candy


We quickly recognize Pandora. For those who have understood we are talking about the planet of the Na'vi, for those who have not yet understood, the planet and the inhabitants of the movie Avatar that I recommend to everyone. Even if the scenario is based on a simple frame that we can recognize, the fact remains that this film is beautiful visually and from the point of view of the story. This is a game that does not take place in the plot of the film, at least it does not appear to be. The game is called Avatar Frontiers of Pandora. This too is only scheduled for next year. The video gives us a very faithful representation of the flora and fauna of the planet, the Na'vi and human vehicles. To see if the game will do justice to the film.



Gearbox Entertainment


I've never played Borderlands, but I like the universe. Every time I see videos on the subject I find it captivating. It starts with a small video presenting the Gearbox University, so humor. Presenting us the diploma in sociopathy or even regular medialogy or whatever it is you do -ology. Quite nice therefore with the images of some of their games and characters.


We are at the filming location of the movie Borderlands. We are introduced to the director and Ramirez who will play Atlas. We are accompanied all along by the CEO of Gearbox. They honor Cate Blanchett for her work and humor. Then we see a blurred Tiny Tina, a weapon very well represented and even compared to its version of the game. The whole team working hard to create something beautiful. We then see the two producers who have worked on many Marvel. They explain that they took 2 years to find an agreement with Gearbox to make this film. They accepted this long negotiation because they are sure they can make a great movie with this game. 2/3 of the movie has been shot already.


Back on a sequence of their university full of humor with the voice of actress Mayim Bialek who plays Amy in The Big Bang Theory.


We are entitled to a small presentation on the game Tiny Tina's Wonderland. A fantasy game, with all the codes, castles, goblins etc. The game is scheduled for release next year.



Tribes of Midgard


We can see how the game will work. So a Vikings game. We have a sacred tree that monsters want to destroy. We must therefore, during the day, go find resources, complete missions, kill monsters and then return, enlarge the village, fortify it, create weapons and armor. At night, monsters come to attack the village and you have to know how to defend it. From time to time giants arrive who must win at all costs otherwise it's game over. A game that seems promising and playable both solo and multi. An Action / RPG releasing on July 27 this year.

One last humor session and we leave for a superb video.



Godfall


On August 10 the game is released for PS4 with a free update on PS5 afterwards. It is Cross-Gen and therefore can be played together for PS4 / 5 players. The same day comes the Lightbringer update. A very specific mission allowing you to loot differently as well as the Fire and Darkness expansion pack. This brings its share of novelties.

We are again on the set to have the right to a conversation between the CEO of Gearbox and Kevin Hart, actor and comedian. He will have the role of Roland from Borderlands who apparently suits him so well.



It was long but very pleasant. Gearbox has proven how funny they can be and not just in their games. Their conference was crazy but not lacking in content either. For Ubisoft, we also had great information. I especially think of Riders Republic which looks very well done. Rainbow Six Extraction also seems to promise hours of games and rage.


For the first day, we were treated to some great conferences. For my part, I can't wait to see what tomorrow has to offer us. Between the desire to see the Square Enix announcements and the desire that this first day gave me, I must say that I am impatient!


See you tomorrow !
