Trover Saves the Universe | Trailer
Wonderful. Your dogs have been dognapped by a beaked lunatic who stuffed them into his eye holes and is using their life essence to destroy the universe. Does that make any sense? You’ve partnered with Trover, a little purple eye hole monster to save them.

A new trailer for the mysterious Death Stranding gave us our first look at gameplay, and introduced us to two new characters played by Lea Seydoux and Lindsay Wagner. The trailer begins with a tease from the baby transitioning into a conversation between Norman Reedus' character, Sam, and an unnamed woman. Sam was asked to work for her, but said he just made deliveries. He was then shown walking through various environments and eventually shown talking with Lea Seydoux.

Marvel's Spider-Man | Showcase Footage
Closing out the show was Sony's next upcoming big exclusive by Insomniac Games, where we got to see Spider-Man chasing down Electro as he frees incarcerated inmates in The Raft and faces off against him and other notable villains.

You know I kind of miss seeing the head of Sony, cause I used to see him once upon a time before showing the game trailers. =_=" Yea, Death Stranding story sounds interesting, but the gameplay looked kinda.. sorta.. boring impo. With a world full of nothing going from one area to another, idk it's just what little gameplay was shown.. Eh? The only thing that was shown I liked the look of was the game Control.

RE: Sony @ E3 2018 - Moonface - 06-12-2018

I was worried about how the conference was going to go when they moved the audience to another location after The Last of Us Part II, but it turned out to be an OK conference. Not great, but not bad. Ghost of Tsushima looked awesome and I hope it turns out well on release, and I'm very excited for the Resident Evil 2 Remake now that we finally got to see some of it! Grin

Death Stranding was as weird as always, but the gameplay seems to be a focus on stealth only. I'm still not sold on the game because I just can't tell what type of game it is, and as you said queen, too much of it looked like nothing was really going on except just walking in fields with deliveries.

RE: Sony @ E3 2018 - Mr EliteL - 06-12-2018

Last Of Us Part II, Ghost of Tsushima and Spider-Man were best things here for me. GoT, loved the swordplay and duels. Spider-Man was smooth and fast paced, the chase sequence looked great. I wasn't a fan of what they did at the start, moving people around to another place after TLOU. Glad that didn't keep happening. Death Stranding, I agree. Still needs more to convince it'll be worth a game getting (I don't have proper interest though).

EDIT: Good grief, how'd I make that typo? I was NOT. XD

RE: Sony @ E3 2018 - King Atem - 06-12-2018

Yea, sony's e3 was lackluster at best. Yes the Shinobi style game looked interesting but there was 0 gameplay or release date. And Death Stranding looks to be a walking delivery man's journey simulator, with strange monsters tossed in for cut scenes. Ok, now I've just lost interest.

It's almost like Sony is content at being console A number 1 & gave up giving a crap 2 e3's ago. Meh

RE: Sony @ E3 2018 - Dragon Lord - 06-12-2018

Ghost of Tsushima looks so good. I just hope the game is difficult. Tired of all these really nice looking games, but then they are casual as fuck. Time for some git gud or go home games.

And on that note, the best announcement here, and one of the best of E3 entirely, is Nioh 2. If KT can fix a few of the issues of Nioh (mainly the lack of enemy variety), then Nioh 2 is going to be one amazing game.

At least half of what was shown was gameplay. There's just no HUD and the camera doesn't stay centered behind the character all the time to create a cinematic feeling to the combat.

and I'm totally okay with this tbh. 

I'm very tired of getting teased about games that aren't coming out for 2 to 3 years. Give me something with substance and gameplay and I'll call you a success. don't give be teaser trailers or trailers that say not actual gameplay footage. That does nothing for me. Make me excited about something I'm not seeing for years and I'm beyond hating it now.

RE: Sony @ E3 2018 - Dragon Lord - 06-16-2018

So I've been reading some Tweets this morning about how a lot of people are accusing Sony of racism/cultural appropriation because at the start of their Ghost of Tsushima trailer, they had a "white guy dressed up in Japanese clothing playing a Japanese instrument." They're saying that Sony should have had an Asian person doing that, rather than "whitewashing" Japanese culture.

Here is an Imgur gallery showing some of the Tweets.  I went and read some of the other Tweets happening between the person arguing against these people (Twitter handle "Best Mom Eva"), and it's just sad to see how many people just don't get it. It's not like Sony just picked some random white guy who knows nothing about Japanese culture to do this. They picked someone who is considered a master of that instrument and has dedicated his life to learning and appreciating Japanese culture.

What really gets me is that people are calling Sony (a Japanese company) racist for not getting an Asian to play the instrument. But they don't say that they should have gotten a Japanese person to do it. They only say Asian. So it'd be okay if it was a Chinese man doing it instead? Also the fact that most of these people don't even know the name of the instrument. Most of them are referring to it as a "wooden bamboo stick."

Just goes to show that these "SJWs" (if you want to call them that) don't actually know anything about what they're "fighting" against, and are just looking for any and every reason to just be mad at something.

I personally think it's awesome that Sony decided to reward this guy for his hard work and dedication by allowing him to play for them on their E3 stage.

RE: Sony @ E3 2018 - Mr EliteL - 06-17-2018

Let's typecast instrument players to their supposed origin. No one is allowed to play it, but them!

Good grief, making a fuss over who's playing some music to a game. Glad there was someone to have information about the guy. I didn't know the instrument either, but I wasn't get worked up over why he was chosen. I expected he was well deserving to be featured for Ghost of Tsushima like that. Indeed he was by Best Mom Eva's post.

RE: Sony @ E3 2018 - ShiraNoMai - 06-17-2018

Yeah that was an unfortunate misunderstanding, and I'm annoyed that person took the hotseat over this instead of someone praising the work this guy has done. Also, don't you think the Japanese-owned company would know a thing or two about their own culture? Hmm

Also I second you, Monocle, and am glad they went ahead and showed off games that will be coming out soon rather than ten years from now. Nintendo did, too (though, perhaps to a fault), and I prefer this method than just teasing the idea of something, or worse, showing something that isn't indicative of what the game will even remotely look like at launch.

Been hearing also that the people at this press briefing were just having the worst time. Being shoved in a room for one gimmick, then being herded out to the next thing while more teasers and stuff are being announced in-between that they have no idea about, despite being at the actual briefing.

That's the best part of all of it.The fact that they're saying a Japanese company was being racist/cultural appropriating their own culture. I have to question whether any of these people actually know that Sony is a Japanese company, or if they don't realize that there are other countries out there other than America. Probably the latter, judging by their levels of sheer stupidity.

RE: Sony @ E3 2018 - Moonface - 06-18-2018

I'm not surprised about the Ghost of Tsushima bitching. People were doing it about the kissing in The Last of Us Part II's trailer as well, claiming it made no sense despite Ellie's sexuality being addressed prior to this game, or the best one I read was "In a setting like that her species preservation instincts would kick in and she'd try to reproduce." Really? I'm glad someone at Naughty Dog made a post on Twitter outright saying that if people don't like it then don't buy the game until they grow up.

RE: Sony @ E3 2018 - Dragon Lord - 06-18-2018

B-b-b-but video games should align to MY beliefs and values! There shouldn't be anything in any video game that I don't like! How dare video game developers make games the way THEY want to and not the way I want them!!!!!

I really have to wonder when the self-entitlement we see in the gaming community now days started. Unsurprisingly it seems to be from the younger gaming crowd.

RE: Sony @ E3 2018 - Moonface - 06-18-2018

I expect it started happening when players had a direct way to communicate with developers and publishers. There was a time you didn't have the ability to respond to a company or individual worker on their social media pages to try and influence a product.
