The E3 2020 thread but not really... - Limited Run Games Presentation 7/8 @ 12pm PST/3pm EST - Ubisoft Forward 7/12 @ 12pm PST/3pm EST

So with the world gone to shit right now due to covid-19 the ESA, E3’s parent company has decided to cancel the event. It was originally going to take place from 6/9-6/11

Thankfully. Many game developers, publishers, gaming media outlets and people with deep ties to the gaming community have decided that the lack of E3 isn’t going to stop them from showing off upcoming games, DLC, collaborations and maybe even new hardware like consoles or peripherals.

@SonicHuman and I have been discussing about this thread for week and since there are several presentations coming up I went a head and decided to pull the trigger.

I’ll have the upcoming 1-3 presentations in the thread title so people don’t forget. I will link ways to get to the presentations and news about presentations when they become available. Once aired I will also add to this post.

Obviously if anyone else finds out about more streams/presentations/whatever. Let me know and I will update accordingly.

If anyone as has any links to potential games showing up in these presentations please let SonicHuman or I know

As for the Big 3:

Nintendo

Nintendo has internally told several of their own development studios, indie partners and major 3rd party parters that they have no plans on having a June direct this year. They told all who needed to know that one will likely not be made until September at the earliest. However, Nintendo being Nintendo that doesn’t mean they don’t have anything to share into the leading months. The new Paper Mario trailer a few weeks ago seemingly coming out of no where is proof of that.

They have also told all who need to know that if they feel their content is ready to show off than Nintendo would happily let them post them on their own websites or reach out to nintendo.

Sony

Sony seems to plan on slow dripping out info about the last few games coming out and the PS5. They have a State of Play for Last of Us Part 2 on Wednesday as well as there are major rumblings of them doing a PS5 dedicated State of Play sometime in June.

Microsoft

Microsoft has already made their plans known. They plan on doing monthly video presentations or blogs of various lengths, styles and content about everything Xbox SEX box will offer leading into its Holiday release.

Hopefully all of this will make the best out of a bad situation. Lets have some fun and get hype about video games!

This this and this. I’ve been hoping to see more about this but no such luck. I’m hoping it’ll be as big a jump as DMC3 was from the first two.

Am I the only one who couldn’t care less if Scarlet Nexus was the next DMC/Bayonetta, on account of how awful the artstyle is?

Seriously. I really want to play it. I mean I get that the devs are like only two people so that’s why I’m not super worried or anything but man, really looking forward to it still lol
