Video Game General 5.0: HEROES NEVER DIE!


E3 2017

So…the time has come upon us once again! We’re a little over a month away at this point and there will be more information pouring over the next few weeks so all aboard!

Official Website:

Date: E3 will officially be going on from June 13th to June 15th 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.


Discord chat for this year is updated courtesy of Rockbogart!

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

Mother 3 western release?:
This rumor has been going on for quite some time now. Each timewe think it’s coming it’s been disappointing. Latest rumor is that it’s heading to Switch and of course Reggie is always trying to avoid directly the answering the question whenever it comes up so maybe this year?

Interestingly enough this most recent rumor comes from Laura Kate who has been correct on a few rumors regarding the Switch.

Rabbids X Mario RPG game
Who in the heck asked for this? Lol When the rumor about this game popped up it was way out of left field and when the Switch was released nothing else was heard about it…but then the rumor popped up again recently this time from Kotaku

This rumor first started out from Laura Kate and now Kotaku is saying they got art assets of the game and it supposedly uses the Snowdrop engine. It’s only the 2nd time this game has popped up but chances are if this is a thing it will definitely show up this year.
Edit: All we need is confirmation at this point.

Devil May Cry 5:
Yeah this rumor is STILL going…

It’s not just the fact that though at this point…

With Itsuno stating that he’s working on a new project many fans are hoping that it’s DMC5

It’s also very possible that the game Itsuno is working on is a sequel to Dragon’s Dogma…but it’s very interesting that Johnny and and Langdon were doing work so long ago and we still have no idea for what it was for and that was a year ago.

Ninja Gaiden 4:
This has been floating around for a minute as well…Confirmed to be in development by Team Ninja and then complete silence on it

They’ve said that Nioh is the gateway towards Ninja Gaiden so since Nioh got released this year it’s a bit doubtful we’ll see much of anything on this project. But a little tease could be possible.

2 unknown Bethesda projects

They sent out an E3 invite this year that has 2 areas on it that state ‘under construction’. Interestingly enough supposedly last year they were supposed to announce a new Wolfenstein game according to rumors but that didn’t happen…then there’s also the rumors floating around about Evil Within 2.

Retro Studios new game
It’s been 3 years since the release of Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze and the dev has been pretty silent. There was that rumor from Laura Kate a while back stating that the game their working on isn’t Metroid or Donkey Kong. Could be interesting…

Interestingly enough though Laura has stated that she’s heard that a new Metroid is in dev though…


People been bugging about it for a minute and Federation Force well…In any case Nintendo stated before that they have plans for 2D and 3D so it’s probably not a matter of if but when at this point.

Next Assassin’s Creed game could show up this year, potentially set in Egypt

Ubisoft actually decided they were going to take a break to improve the quality of the franchise after Syndicate. Most of the rumors seem to point that the new game is coming out this year.

Pokemon on the Switch:
Believe this is another rumor that started from Laura Kate

Things don’t seem to be looking up for this rumor at the moment since there hasn’t been much else about it and not to mention the fact that as of me typing this a Pokemon just happened and they announced Pokken for Switch, Pokemon Gold and Silver for 3ds VC and Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon for 3ds. Apparently though there was 4 chan rumor that was fairly spot on that happened 2 months before this Direct:

As always though…rumors are rumors until officially announced so don’t get your hopes and dreams crushed like the people hoping the game to be announced at the Direct.

Microsoft’s E3 2010 Conference Highlights

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.

Mr. Caffeine Metal Remix

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.

I’m hoping we get more info about Days Gone.


Ugh, I’ll have to defend my diploma during E3 -_-

Hopefully I’ll be free right on June 10th so I can dive deep into the press conferences


I hope there will be news about the Vampyr game.


Cool. I have mondays off so I’ll be able to watch the sony E3 stream. Hopefully Nintendos E3 Direct will be on a day I’m off too.


My E3 Perdictions

Nintendo will not show and instead of during E3 will have their own online showcase.

Microsoft forgets the Xbox One is supposed to play games and instead focuses on shit no one cares about, now 4 years running

Sony Steals the Show unless Nintendo Do another BOTW (despite Nindy not being their)

Bethesda got something cooking

And fuck EA, and Ubisoft, no one cares


I can’t wait to get salty at Nintendo even if they have a great showcase because either F-Zero, Metroid and/or Mother 3 no show again.


Shenmue 3
Yakuza Kiwami 2
Persona 7 teaser
Final fantasy XV-2
Onimusha 1 remake
Dino crisis 1 remake
Whatever Zoolander last shilled (hahah)
Random nintendo IP developed by Ninja theory


I want info on the new Spider-Man. It ain’t right how we were left starving for a year.


I want a third person Metroid in the vein of BotW…just without weapon durability.

I’m looking for:

Switch announcements
Shenmue 3

Anything else to blow my mind.

I’ll be laughing at:

Nintendo’s online details


Hype Hype Hype


You don’t really need to predict that Nintendo isn’t showing, they already said they aren’t doing a conference this year and I think we all know that they aren’t going to do an E3 conference ever again because they have absolutely no need to do so.


We in there. Let’s hope more live Orchestra for things.


I have no reason to expect it, but I’m hoping for a new Chrono game. :s


MY obligatary “please have a Socom game like Socom 2 and Socom confrontation and not like that abomination Socom 4”. Not going to happen but E3 is where the dreamers are.


Tekken x Street Fighter, will it happen this year? Some people say yes because it’ll be after Tekken 7 but I’ve heard that one before.


that sure sounds like a great way to cannibalize their Tekken 7 sales.

also again there is no proof NG4 is in development. the first statement was refrencing Nioh, and they later said "we aren’t working on it we will think of new ideas and visit the IP some other time.

that said im expecting something, KT said they’re expecting record sales next year and even if DW9 is open world i don’t think it would be that impressive sales wise. Dissidia has been sited to be lacking man power so i don’t know if they can Spare any of the Team Ninja guys to make a new DOA6 or something else although with Tekken 7 coming out this would be the perfect time for them to so since their biggest competitor would be out of their launch window.


So what are the suspects of the rumormill now?

FF7R got announced
Shenmue 3 got announced
Kingdom Hearts 3 got announced
The Last Guardian actually came out
Final Fantasy XV actually came out

Which games besides Devil May Cry (seriously DMC5 is being “rumored” every god damn year since this generation started) haven’t gotten a sequel in a while?

I kinda doubt we’re getting a new Soulsborne game anytime soon
Resistance 4 rumor seems shady at best since Insomniac is busy with Spider-Man
It’s unlikely for a new Ratchet & Clank or Jak & Daxter to happen (again - Insomniac are busy with Spidey and Nauhty Dog got their hands thied with Unch and TLOU2)
Platinum Games are working on like 12 new games at the moment
It’s too early for any new Final Fantasy announcements besides new DLC episodes for XV
Blizzard doesn’t really visit E3 so Diablo 4 isn’t happening
2K apparently doesn’t have Borderlands 3 as a part of their confirmed games lineup for E3 (and we know Gearbox is working on that already)
Darksiders III just got announced and is in too early of a stage to be showcased publicly at a big event
Destiny 2 also got revealed last month and is getting a gameplay demo in like a couple of weeks
It’s also too early for anything Mafia related
Rockstar are busy with Red Dead Redemption 2

I guess Dead Island 2 might make an appearance? The devs said that game is apparently still happening
Assassin’s Creed should be revealed as well
It’s been a while since we heard anything about WILD (that weird Ubisoft game by the creator of Beyond Good & Evil)
EA will probably showcase the new Need for Speed game

Anything else?
