Video Game General 4.0: You wanna enjoy your console? There's an app for that


As of me typing this we are just a little over month away from E3 this year…so let’s get the hype train going.

Official Website:

Date: E3 will officially be going on from June 14th to June 16th this year. Of course this doesn’t include what any other conferences that may happen before these days. Dates for conferences and events will be placed below.


Rumor Mill(on going progress up until the end of the conferences)

The Crash Bandicoot rumor that won’t die:
There’s this thing that keeps popping up but never fully shows -

As of currently though the news is that Sony revealed that Activision still owns the rights -

Take note though that while Boyes does say that the rights do belong to Activision…he doesn’t say that a new Crash isn’t coming in some capacity. As unlikely as it is if it were to be made it’d be a partnership with Activision. That’d be an interesting surprise…again though it’d be highly unlikely.

Updated iterations of current hardware:
There’s been some reports of a ‘PS4K’ and ‘Xbox 1.5’ floating around -

There’s a lot more info floating around about PS4K than Xbox 1.5 at the moment…most of the information is pretty convincing on PS4K while Xbox 1.5 recently had this show up -

PS4K seems pretty likely at the moment.

Mother 3 western release?:
There’s been a lot of talk about this game and the lamentations over it never having reached the states. It’s only been in the recent months that the rumors about this game finally getting localized over have been starting to get pretty intense.

I’d like to think that they’d finally announce this game coming over at E3 but Nintendo seems intent on showing mostly Zelda at the conference. It may still happen but I’m not expecting it during E3 week.

Devil May Cry 5:
Something that action fans have been waiting for some time for. Rumors about this game haven’t been really big considering Capcom seems really iffy on the franchise at the moment and arguably trying to sabotage interest in through their choices of making DMC 4 available to the west. What makes things interesting is this

Very interesting that these 2 are doing motion capture together again. That would reeeeally suck if it was just for that dumb Devil May Cry X pachinko

God of War 4:
There’s been small rumblings of this happening here and there along with a semi official confirmation. It’s almost not even a rumor at this point what with the leaked concept art.

Microsoft E3 2010 - Skittles…

Admittedly this one isn’t so much bad since it actually does a pretty good job as a demonstration…that however doesn’t prevent it from being awkward and gif worthy.

Ubisoft E3 2009 Conference - James Cameron talks about Avatar: The Game for what seems like forever…and doesn’t show one screenshot or any footage

Ubisoft E3 2011 Conference - Mr. Caffeine

To be fair…Ubisoft’s conference that year isn’t that bad considering the content…but DOODLY DOODLY DOODLY DOO brought it down a few notches.

Mr. Caffeine Metal Remix

Microsoft E3 2012 - Usher whips out a concert for Dance Central 3 out of nowhere

The game shows up about a bit 3/4 of the way through the performance and at first it seems like he’s finally demonstrating it…but then you realize the truth lol.

Choo Choo!


Need that ps4.5 release date.


MVC4 or I don’t care.


So what are you guys looking forward too? How do you think the conferences will fair?

Games I’m looking forward to seeing personally: Zelda Wii U, Horizon Zero Dawn, Gears 4, KH 3, Final Fantasy XV, Final Fantasy 7R, hopefully seeing something on Watch Dogs 2, Hopefully maybe an Red Dead Redemption 2 announcement, I want Shadows of Mordor 2 pretty badly, and I’m also pretty curious to see if Capcom will announce Resident Evil 7 or not and if they’ve learned their lesson yet.


I’m looking forward to any Resident Evil announcements. Formal announcement for RE7, a teaser for the RE2 remake and other RE projects they might have planned. A US date for Persona 5 would be fantastic.


Abstaining from all E3 questions and just going to sit back and enjoy the show.

I look forward to the many Rowlet and Joker gifs I will be using in the future.


KH3, FF7R, RE7


The third Ace Attorney 6 trailer


Honestly don’t know jackshit whats going on for this year E3, but I guess I’ll try & see any new games I haven’t heard of yet :confused:


Never messed with Discord so I’m looking into it now so I can get familiar with it. If you can make the channel I’d appreciate it.


Mother 3 stateside. Release dates for Dragon Quest 7 3D and DQ8 3D. More info on Pokemon Sun/Moon. Though I doubt none of those will be announced because Nintendo is going to keep Nintendo’ing. CUZ WE NO U LIEK ZELDARU

Release dates for Last Guardian, KH Prologue 2.8 or whatever dumb shit they’re calling it, release date for KH3

Release date for PS4K or at least a slew of info on it.

That’s honestly it really.





That’s the Holy Trinity of E3 2016.

Looking forward to more info on Shenmue 3, NI-OH, Nier and PSVR.

There’s an indie run-n-gun on the Wii U that uses the wiimote+nunchaku that I forgot the name of >_< Looked awesome, though. Interested to see the fallout from PS4K and Xbone 1.5 if those are true.

Pretty pumped for this year!


Shenmue 3
Persona 5

That’s all i want and need in life.


Give me a Jet Set Radio sequel or give me death!

(not really on the latter part :P)


Give me a Persona 5 NA Release Date…or a bran muffin!


Excited for all the games that will look nothing like they do on their release date.


i’m sure nintendo will have a surprise or two up their sleeve.
nothing is gonna top last year though.


Pretty sure Nintendo is just betting Zeruda this year.

Persona 5 and Zeruda info for me. Also Last Guardian.


Besides a Tekken 7 release date, I think you all know what I really want to see.
