Before Watching: You better not fuck it up like how you fucked up E3 2017.

After Watching: I can confidently state that this video was actually pretty good, the ending felt unnecessary as it was a reiteration of what was said in previous videos, but I guess this point will have to be repeated until something actually happens.

I also thought the Assassin's Creed bit was funny.

Wow I didn't even know Ubisoft acted like they hadn't done the playable female character thing with AC before, i'm as pissed as Yahtzee now, surprised he didn't also snark on Odyssey for the devs bragging about how the game adopted a Bioware style dialogue system that let you romance people.

I was kinda hoping Yahtzee would rag on Sony for their bullshit restricting of Fortnite accounts.

As for Microsoft, well the Xbox One X is more powerful then the PS4 Pro and you know MS are not going to fuck you over on crossplay like Sony are, so that's one reason why I feel justified in buying all my multiplatform titles on there.

Wow, he sounded PISSED about E3 this year! I didn't have time to watch ALL the trailers and demos last week, but now I want to see what I missed out of morbid curiosity.
Speaking of missing, Escapist, if Yahtzee wants to do his Extra Punctuation column again, just let him do it.

Maybe Halo: Infinite, I hate that shit title almost as much as Combat Evolved, will be decent to juxtapose from Halo 5's shitness. That and it has a PC release too, so maybe I'll be able to stop hissing a 343 employees and get out from under the couch.

too many eejits with more money than sense. Manipulated through their own hyped imagination

luckily, a brain malfunctioning enough means feeling excitement for anything pretty much hasn't happened for some long while. lucky me

Nina Struthers acknowledgement is lacking though. Aw

He didn't have to say anything about the new Tomb Raider game beyond it being about her becoming the Tomb Raider. Nuff said just there.

It seems Yahtzee mixed up Ghost of Tsushima and Days Gone though. Don't remember anything postapocalyptic in first one.

Same. I didn't watch it so I had no idea they were bragging about 'finally' having a lady character. I assumed its just par for Ass creed games to have sibling protagonists now, simply the right call to make and doesn't take away from the story. Really kinda shitty they made such a big deal about it for Odyssey.

Ah Yahtzee's post-E3 roundup. The only thing I look forward to with E3. Honestly the slipping of the standards of gaming consumers are why I get pissed off at gamers almost as much as I get pissed off at the corporate fuckwads that pull the money-grubbing bullshit.
Also wow, Ubisoft, that's just sad. How could you forget that'd you'd already done the female character thing?

EDIT: Also does Bethesda really think it's a good idea to name a game after a shitty super hero team created by Rob Liefeld?

I wonder if the 'speaker for the dead' title at the start of the credits was a respectful nod to TB.

I preorder games because I have Amazon Prime and preordering games gives Prime members a 20% discount. There's not really a better preorder bonus than "pay less for the game you're getting anyways."

Yahtzee isn't going to take it well when someone breaks it to him that Shadows Die Twice is NOT a Souls game, but instead an action game like Ninja Gaiden, Devil May Cry, or FromSoft's Otogi games. Also it's being published by Activision, so expect some kind of bullshit meant to drain people's wallets.

I thought Halo 5 was pretty damn good and i'm excited for Infinite.

I quite enjoy Liefeld's work for the most part so i'm fine with the name, not sure if the game will be any godo though.

IDK, I mostly know them through Atop the Fourth Wall. Of course ignoring Linkara's commentary and judging for myself, Liefeld's art is still incredibly hideous. And Youngblood in particular looks very bland and generic.

i'm knid of confused on how Yahtzee is less interested on the new spider-man game every time stuff is shown on it.. that's the exact opposite attitude of pretty much every gamer, journalist and rabbit squirrel around right now.. it looks incredible (still not pre-ordering. since I never pre-order a game)... Ghosts of tsushima also looks ed amazing and again he was a bit own on it.. at least have a small amount of positivity for it's potential... and he didn't even mention the great looking remake of RE2 trailer and gameplay footage at E3

The ending credits are genuinly worth a read this week, and holy shit, it's been a while since I heard Yahtzee so genuinly angry about something as he was over Assassin's Creed Oddessy. For good reasons, granted.
